I'll probably think of more later and probably go over 10, but in no particular order:
 Walking Tall (the original of course! ... "When's the last time you stood up in a movie theater and cheered?")
 Back to the Future (mostly first one, but they're all good)
 Close Encounters of the Third Kind
 Earth vs. the Flying Saucers
 It Came From Outer Space (OK, so I'm a flying saucer nut!)
 The Magnificent Seven
 Slapshot
 The Last Waltz (featuring The Band, Eric Clapton etc.)
 It's a Wonderful Life (sappy but great stuff, guardian angel always got to me :)
 Revenge of the Nerds
 Rocky (the original)
 American Graffiti
 Cheers

More then ten certainly, but what makes all these films endlessly watchable are the little things in them. For example . . . There is a 13 second clip from "Lair of the White Worm" at YouTube, where you have Kevin, the boy scout in the film, knocking on the window of a parked car, to ask the driver for a ride to the next youth hostel. Most cinematographers, directors, writers would place the whole character in the scene, but the cinematographer/director/writer, as it is the same man--Ken Russell, shows only Kevin's hand and arm, when he knocks on the car window. But I never thought much about it, till I saw this clip on YouTube. As I said, it is the little things like this, that make a film endlessly watchable.

Well BoyScoutKevin, I agree with your comments, if not with your example...  Wink

I'll probably think of more later and probably go over 10, but in no particular order:
 Walking Tall (the original of course! ... "When's the last time you stood up in a movie theater and cheered?")
 Back to the Future (mostly first one, but they're all good)  Close Encounters of the Third Kind  Earth vs. the Flying Saucers  It Came From Outer Space (OK, so I'm a flying saucer nut!)  The Magnificent Seven  Slapshot  The Last Waltz (featuring The Band, Eric Clapton etc.)  It's a Wonderful Life (sappy but great stuff, guardian angel always got to me :)  Revenge of the Nerds  Rocky (the original)  American Graffiti
All good choices... I always watch AMERICAN GRAFFITI when it's on, same of a few others.

I watched much of two GREER GARSON films that were on TCM today, MRS. MINIVER (1942) and PRIDE AND PREJUDICE (1940) films I've looked at many times and always find interesting.  I wouldn't have thought of them, but they're endlessly watchable to me.

Jaws, for sure. I could especially listen to Quint's Indianapolis monologue over and over.

Empire Records
Lake Placid
Deep Blue Sea
Jason X
Road House
The Quick and the Dead
Mars Attacks
Starship Troopers
The Fifth Element
Tremors

Plus pretty much any of the Roger Moore era Bond movies. Stuart Gordon and Sam Raimi movies, and well I admit to being endlessly fascinated by BloodRayne as well.  Wink

Empire Records, Mars Attacks, and Tremors are all great flicks.  Empire Records is VASTLY underrated as a motion picture and I wish people would acknowledge it.  Mars Attacks as well.

Jason X, while I love it personally (even own the dvd), isn't even a great movie, but it is perfectly watchable on a consistent basis.  Especially on like, a Friday night when there's nothing to do.  Great pick there.

Agree, Empire Records is terribly neglected. The dullest part of the movie are the first few minutes that set up the plot, other than that it flows perfectly. And come on, Rex Manning day was just freakin' awesome.

Who doesn't love Rex Manning Day?

I quote that movie a bunch when I can work it into a regular conversation.

This is an interesting thread for me as I used to manage a video store and we could only play certain certificates during the day. We watched the same films over and over, sometimes 2 or 3 times back to back. So, here goes.

Bridge on the River Kwai
Zulu
Close Encouters
Day the Earth Stood Still
Forbidden Planet
Drunken Master
Wizard of Oz
Oh Brother Where Art Thou
Toy Story
Shrek

The last 2 are for my 2 year old who plays them over and over and I still find myself watching and quoting the lines.

Planes, Trains & Automobiles (1987)  Thumbup



The only film containing Steve Martin that I like, I could watch this 100's of times and never get bored of it. A really funny film with good morals and it's also extremely heartwarming.  Smile

You softie!!!  I admit if it's JOHN CANDY I love it.  STEVE MARTIN is another matter (though not problematic as he apparently is for you...)  My favorite bit is when they flash into skeletons in the hairsplitting near miss with the tractor trailers...  BounceGiggle  BounceGiggle  BounceGiggle  Thumbup

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
