movies you can watch over and over and over and...

post #1 of 42
Thread Starter 
Just throwing out a topic ... I dont know what it is about those certain movies that you can watch ALL the time. For me, I love Aliens. I NEVER get tired of it. Is there some kind of psychology involved in this phenomenon? I dont know. I have it on DVD and can watch it whenever I want, but even if it comes on cable, I will put it on. and not just put it on just to have it on, but will actually watch it.

does anyone else have an addicting movie?

Then, in no particular order:

Mrs Doubtfire

Guess Who's Coming to Dinner
Being There
Sixth Sense
Dead Poet's Society
Finding Forrester
To Sir with Love
Who's That Girl?
and pretty much any Julia Roberts movie...

and that's just what I can see on the shelf from here

'course there are a few that haven't made it to the shelf yet:
Victor Victoria
My Favourite Year

...well, that's what comes to mind, anyway.
