Up in the Air and Shawshank Redemption are my go-to movies whenever the mood to watch something old kicks in. What's yours?

#2 Posted by wemibelec90 (2081 posts) -

My go-to movie of choice is probably The Fifth Element. I don't know for sure, but I would guess it's the movie I've seen more than any other.

The Big Lebowski. The Dude is one of my heroes.

I love the boondock saints. The setting and characters are just so awesome. Love the humour and the soundtrack as well.

  • Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang
  • Burn After Reading
  • 2001: A Space Odyssey
  • Back To The Future

I could kinda go on forever here, so I just put the ones I feel most strongly about

The Big Lebowski. The Dude is one of my heroes.

This one. Also "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas". Probably "The Shining" as well, though it has been a while. Same with "Amélie". "Black Swan" might get there but it's not that old yet and I've seen it four or five times so far.

Good calls on Groundhog Day and The Blues Brothers you people.

#18 Posted by Winternet (8234 posts) -

I don't know, there are so many. James Bond movies, for starters.

#19 Posted by Svenzon (795 posts) -

Dawn of the Dead (Romero's version).

#20 Posted by Sanious (799 posts) -

Hackers. Don't ask why, it just does it for me.

Me too. This movie is just real cheesy fun for me.

I can really watch any movie over and over that I really enjoyed. And a tv series as well.

#21 Posted by ProfessorEss (7669 posts) -

Aliens, Akira and all three Indiana Jones movies.

#22 Posted by Laiv162560asse (488 posts) -

Definitely The Big Lebowski. Rewatching that film is like meeting up with an old friend. Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is another one that never really outstays its welcome.

#23 Edited by Cheesebob (1285 posts) -

Lord Of The Rings

#24 Posted by Demoskinos (16178 posts) -

Fight Club

#25 Posted by Wakka (96 posts) -

Any of the first four Die Hards. John McClane is an awesome character and sort of atypical for an action hero. I haven't seen the fifth but I don't want to, the plot and the trailer looked like trash.

#26 Posted by Spankmealotus (312 posts) -

Tommy Boy, I've seen it probably 100 times but I still laugh every time I watch it.

#27 Posted by Daneian (1306 posts) -

Castle in the, The Dark Knight and Scott Pilgrim

#28 Posted by Nezza (386 posts) -

If I'm bored and not in the mood for something heavy, I often find myself gravitating towards the 2009 Star Trek movie. It's just the right level of vapidness and shiny to turn my brain off to for a couple of hours.

I could watch any of the 'Cornetto Trilogy' films any number of times and still love them.

This man knows what he's talking about. I watch Die Hard, the first one, at least twice a year.

  • Jurassic Park
  • Raiders of the Lost Ark
  • Back to the Future
  • Goodfellas
  • Network
  • Raising Arizona
  • Sherlock Holmes (2009) - A lot of people would say because it's so forgettable, but I think it hits all the right notes for a big budget re-imagining.

#31 Posted by HaltIamReptar (2038 posts) -

Dr. Strangelove.

#32 Edited by DarkShaper (1362 posts) -
  • Die Hard - The first one every Christmas and a other times earlier in the year.
  • Street Fighter the Movie
  • Captain America
  • Summer Wars - I like the characters and story but I keep watching it because it is so damn pretty, It's the only movie I own on Blu-Ray.
#33 Edited by SimplyCheese (39 posts) -

Snatch. Watching it is like coming home.

#34 Posted by oraknabo (1567 posts) -

I could watch Tarkovsky's Zerkalo at least once a week. That movie is like church for me.

#35 Posted by TheManWithNoPlan (6256 posts) -

I love watching most Tarantino films over and over again.

When ever I'm in a really shitty depressing mood I always find Forgetting Sarah Marshall gets me back on the rails.

Basically any blu ray I own (since I'm the one picking them out). I can never get into netflix because I feel my choice is being limited in a lot of ways. Yes, buying blu rays can be very expensive, but I get more enjoyment out of creating a collection of my all time favorite movies than randomly watching whatever is on netflix. By the way, netflix really doesn't have that many great movies; sure they have a handful, but most of it is shit.

And the great thing about collecting blu rays is that they actually have fidelity comprable to theater quality (something past formats never could achieve). At this point, the only thing that a new format could beat blu ray at is running at a higher pixel count/looking better on larger tv's, but (to me) I feel 1080p on a 42 inch TV is perfectly fine. Anything past that just seems like overkill.

So many of my favorites have already been listed here, but the one film that I've gone back to more than any other in the past few years has got to be Black Dynamite.

#45 Posted by churrific (490 posts) -
  • Star Trek: First Contact
  • Star Trek: Generations (the Enterprise destruction scene is still like the most prominent WTF moments of my younger yrs)
  • TMNT (1990)
  • Back to the Future
  • The Rock

So many but the one's I'll watch if they're on TV usually and I can watch over and over are -

  • Die Hard
  • The Fugitive
  • Terminator 2
#47 Edited by Quarters (2085 posts) -

The Fast and the Furious movies. So good.

#48 Edited by pyromagnestir (4380 posts) -

There are a lot of great movies that I never tire of... but I'm going to mention a couple less than great movies that I find oddly addicting.

  • The Negotiator
  • Enemy of the State
  • Entrapment

I don't know why, but if I see either of these movies on I can never not watch them to completion. There are probably some others that fall in this category but I can't remember them at the moment.
