I'm sure this will vary a lot from person to person, but some of my most played DVDs are "Minority Report," "Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring" (theatrical edition,) "Vertigo," "Twelve Monkeys," "2001: A Space Odyssey," "The 400 Blows," and "The Third Man."

I think a lot of horror has replay value - especially the Evil Dead series, Halloween, and the Friday the 13th series. I can put them in at any time and it entertains me.

Some of the dvds my wife and I tend to watch rather often:

1) Grosse Pointe Blank
2) French Kiss
3) Groundhog Day
4) The Royal Tenenbaums
5) Rushmore
6) Bad Company
7) Vegas Vacation
8) The Big Lebowski
9) Fight Club
10) Addams Family Values
11) Very Brady Sequel

More comedies than dramas for rewatchability. I tend to rewatch dramas but together we tend to rewatch comedies.

this will definately vary from person to person but since you asked:

-Back to the Future
-Die Hard
-The Rock
-Ghostbusters
-Terminator 2
-Speed
-Tremors
-Toy Story 1
-True Romance

just to name a few. All of these have infinate rewatchability value for me.
