What movies do you LOVE to watch?

It doesn't necessarily mean your favorite movies, but ones that you just love to watch whether it be basic cable, premium cable, or DVD. Ones that you can watch just a piece of over and over or in its' entirety. Ones that you have such giddy enthusiasm when you watch it by yourself or a loved one.

For me it has to be "Serenity". I just love the flow and the actors work so very well together. I am not saying it is my top 10 and I didn't even get into "Firefly", but someting about the theatrical film that meshes so perfectly that i enjoy it over and over.

That one is up there for me too, which is odd because I'm not even certain it's a good movie.

It seems no matter what the mood, I can always watch any kind of vacation or trip movie: Vacation, Great Outdoors, Summer Rental, etc. I can usually pop in any 80s classic and enjoy it, too.

I wonder what the tally is on people like us who fit into this category country wide.

Everytime I visit my Mother, there is always a Rocky marathon on TV and we will sit there and watch parts 1 & 2 like we've never seen them before. It's pretty funny stuff actually because we ALWAYS start talking about how bad parts 4 & 5 were.

Others would be:

Reservoir Dogs (still has not got old for me - Tarantino just nailed it with this one)
The Departed (I had some trouble with this film a little while back in regards to repeat viewings but can now watch it anytime, anywhere - the performances alone will make you come back for more after so many viewings and I just recently started picking up on the films cool little subtle extras that will blow you away once you figure them out - Scorsese is a fucking genious).
Batman (Burton's first), Batman Returns, & Batman Begins

That's pretty much it for now

"Edtv" and "Keeping the Faith" are nowhere near favorites, but when they are on tv i always love watching them.
