Single most re-watchable DVD you own & single most not re-watchable DVD you own?

Curious to see what the most re-watchable movie/DVD in your collection is and then one that warrants watching maybe once every couple of years or so, like "Passion of the Christ" or "Schnidler's List" which may be way too emotion provoking or perhaps a movie that you seek to savor and thus deems not re-watching for many moons.

For me:

re-watchable: "Dawn of the Dead" is the one that I can eagerly pop in at a moment's notice and watch it gleefully over and over, especially with the 4-discer next week (Can't wait to watch all cuts b-t-b-t-b).

not re-watchable: "Schnidler's List". Don't own POTC so can't attest, but SL is too powerful to watch within years of each viewing.

The most rewatchable DVD by far, ironically so, is Groundhog Day. The list rewatchable DVD is Dogville. I got it a few months go before it came out in the theaters here and after 15 minutes of watching it I wanted to rip my eyes out of my head.

Most re-watchable: Seven Samurai -- Not my absolute favorite film, but one I could watch again and again.

Least re-watchable (in terms of not liking it): Dawn of the Dead -- I just don't get what people see in this one.
Most emotionally wretching: Dancer in the Dark -- an incredible film, but very emotionally demanding.

I liked NotLD a lot, but I think Dawn and Day are just not very well done: poor acting, mediocre makeup, bad sets, poor script, etc.

I don't think he is surprised. He said it is ironic that the most re-watched DVD he owns is a movie in which we essentially re-watch a scene over and over.

"Pirates of the Caribbean"?

Irony surprise. It's ironic because the movie is about experiencing the same thing over and over again.

Most rewatchable: Gladiator
Least rewatchable: Moulin Rouge

Moulin Rouge is a good movie, but not one I'll watch over and over.

not-rewatchable is Star Wars Episode I (how I got through it once is a miracle)
No disrepesct, but if that's the case, why in the world do you even own the DVD if you dislike the movie so much. I'll never undertand this, and the demo excuse doesn't make sense to me either. I fully support and respect your opinion on the film. But I'll never understand why people buy DVDs to movies they don't even like.

I can't answer for darkside, but as for myself, I sometimes end up with DVDs I don't like because they were blind buys based on enthusiastic reviews I'd read.

Most : My most watched DVDs are my James Bond box sets.

Least : Das Boot. One of only a handful of blind buys. I just don't know if I will ever get around to watching this one again. A little long and a little slow in parts. Great once. I like the German mix way more than the English dub, and reading the subtitles that long is distracting to me.
