Actually there are a few films I watch once a year whether I need to or not: HI-LIFE at Christmas, REPEAT PERFORMANCE and CHIMES AT MIDNIGHT for New Year's, RIDE LONESOME and HAMLET......
You got that right. Also, I've never seen either of the #19 choices, so can't comment. And there are others where one viewing was more than enough - PRETTY WOMAN, for example. I'd have CASABLANCA at #1, and would include a number of other titles not even on this list:ANIMAL HOUSEGROUNDHOG DAY (obviously)WHEN HARRY MET SALLYTWO FOR THE ROADCHARADETHE MALTESE FALCON (1941)STAGECOACH (1939)RIO BRAVOTHE SONS OF KATIE ELDERSUPPORT YOUR LOCAL SHERIFFBLAZING SADDLESYou get the idea.

Any list that has RIO BRAVO on it is a good list.
Jaws, Animal House, Close Encounters, Moonstruck, Soapdish. When I encounter any of these movies while channel-surfing, I watch it till the end.My husband has watched all the Clint Eastwood spaghetti western multiple times.
Jackie will watch INDEPENDENCE DAY repeatedly, and has.
The Adventures of Robin Hood - 1938. I'm still angry that it wasn't on the AFI list of 100 greatest movies of all-time.Also, Jeff is right about Forrest Gump. I blame that movie for the rise of Donald Trump. It honors stupidity.sas
THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD is one of my all-time favorites. So Gump = Trump?
Yep. Except Gump is a better person
Not my list by any stretch of the imagination. Not only is CASABLANCA not anywhere near the the top of the list, but it's behind the terrible PRETTY WOMAN. THE NOTEBOOK? Give me a break! And I assume THE AVENGERS refers to the "We have a Hulk" movie and not the Steed and Peel mess.Jeff's list is closer to the mark. RIO BRAVO, certainly. What about THE AFRICAN QUEEN, BRINGING UP BABY, BAD DAY AT BLACKROCK, or Tod Browning's DRACULA?Personally, I never pass up a chance to watch PICNIC AT HANGING ROCK, BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA, A NIGHT AT THE OPERA, or the original KING KONG.
ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD is on my list too.
That's an OK list, I suppose, but only 2 (Star Wars and Casablanca) of them would be on mine. Without trying too hard...They Might Be GiantsThe Big SleepMiracle on 34th Street (the original, not the remake)The Philadelphia StoryThe GraduateFive Easy PiecesAnimal CrackersThe Adventures of Robin HoodThe Return of the Seacaucus Seven (my substitute for The Big Chill)The Big FixThree Days of the CondorI'd have to start thinking hard (and looking at our DVDs) to go on from here.
I would not have included Sound of Music, Grease, Pretty Woman, Grease, Forrest Gump, Star Trek, The Avengers or Dirty Dancing.Would have included The Big Lebowski, The Wild Bunch, African Queen, The 400 Blows, Casino, The Good the Bad & The Ugly, The Seven Samurai, Bladerunner for sure.Guess I'm the only person on the planet that doesn't like Rio Bravo. Ricky Nelson can't act and Dean Martin looks out of place in a Western.
You are not alone, Steve. Brian Garfield hates RIO BRAVO.
She Wore a Yellow Ribbon, Stagecoach, The Quiet Man, Sands of Iwo Jima, and The Shootist--and those are just the John Wayne movies. I'd add Dirty Harry, Shane, The Searchers, and a number of the ones already suggested.
I prefer Cap'n Bob's list by far.JTD
