Dvds with the most rewatch value

I was wondering if you guys could give me a list of movies that have the most rewatch value. I'm not asking just for good movies. There are a lot of good movies that can only be watched once and are not worth buying. So basically any titles that you can watch whenever and never really get sick of. Also titles which are budget titles like those from the 5.50 bins from Walmart would be perferred.

Thanks

I guess it depends on what you like. For me that would be High Plains Drifter and other westerns. I kind of wish I never met the Walmart Dump Bin after the past 2 or 3 years buying from them. I got so many of those that I have no idea of when I will have time to watch them.

That would differ for everyone. I know a lot of people's lists would have a lot more comedy than mine, since I've seen quite a few posts where people say that's what is most rewatchable for them. According to my list I keep, these are the ones I've watched the most (3-6 times each), so these are MY most rewatchable.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
High Fidelity
Blue Velvet
Ghost World
Grosse Pointe Blank
Starship Troopers
Boogie Nights
About a Boy (Widescreen)
Sin City
Dawn of the Dead
Evil Dead II
Once Upon a Time in the West
The Good the Bad and the Ugly
Candyman
Fight Club
Bring It On
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
Evil Dead
Brazil
Iron Monkey
Moulin Rouge
Unbreakable
Lord of Illusions
Warriors
Trainspotting
Army of Darkness

My family have watched:
Ever After - 30 times
Ellen Enchanted - 15 times
Knights Tale - 30 times
Star Wars 1-6 - Too many times to count
Pride and Prejudice (English TV Version 4 hours long) - 15 times and again this weekend

As you can tell we watch alot of Family friendly movies, these are some of out fav I could think of off the top of my head.

But, you will see that most movies are very personal tastes.

I find the El Mariachi trilogy to have an amazing amount of re-watch potential, ive seen all of them at least 3 times in the past couple years.

The ones I rewatch the most aren't usually my favorite movies, but more straightforward ones that I can put on while doing other things and still enjoy even though I'm not paying 100% attention. Buckaroo Banzai, Aliens, Get Shorty, things like that.
