watching movies alone for yourself is the most boring thing you can do tbh, I'm not sure I could watch a movie just for my own enjoyment, especially repeatedly
All the Kara no Kyoukai Movies (especially Paradox Spiral)
Star Trek Generations
Return of the Jedi (my favorite out of the whole OG trilogy, too bad Lucas went insane later in life and became a pale shadow of his former self)
More will come, but they have not been made yet. I feel a new golden age approaching however. Once Hollywood is cleansed of the pedos we'll be met once again with a glorious age of productivity, originality, beauty, etc. It will be great again, we just have to live long enough to see it happen...
Nightmare before Christmas
Kaze no Tani Nausicaa

I have many more favourite movies, but these are commonly the ones that I don't mind watching again at any particular time. Maybe I'm a Constructivist :/

I have watched dozens of movies dozens of times, but that doesn't mean that it is a favorite movie. I've mentioned this before, I'm amazed at how many movies I have watched so many times, but I can't say that these are particularly good movies. I rewatch them in part because sometimes there is nothing else to watch(like there is nothing else on TV or since they are in my movie collection). I'm a bit frugal, so I would rather rewatch something readily available than buy or rent, although I used to rent an insane number of movies when I was younger. I've been trying recently to watch new movies, but this can be difficult to keep up with financially.
Sometimes I think it is to try and get into the frame of mind to relive the experience of the movie, but that is not quite right either. I tend to like certain characters or parts of a movie that elicit an emotional response or pull me into the plot. I want to watch movies with characters that have depth, are raw, very real and relatable; movies that show grit and the struggles of life. Most movies fail to live up to this standard, but I watch them anyways. I like a lot of horror movies too, which lack much of these characteristics, but make you deal with some of human nature's most evil aspects in very raw ways, or the horrors of human psychology, regardless of whether it is supernatural(not true) or natural horror.
Overall, it is a combination of reasons, but after watching one particular franchise with my kids over and over again: I never want to watch another fucking Harry Potter movie as long as I live.
Monty Python and the Holy Grail
i don't have the patience to look through the thread to see if mentioned this one, but lungs jail thread made me remember that it's one of my "never get tired of watching" movies. makes me feel warm fuzzies of nostalgia for being institutionalized .

I remember watching this as a kid. My two friends really liked it too. One was IEE, I don't know the other ones type. Anyway it carried on as a joke among ourselves, people were 'gringos' or 'amigos', and of course the three of us, were, the three amigos.
The theme tune from it ^ The Good, The Bad and the Ugly
It had been out for ages when we first seen it, and I watched it again recently. It came out in 1966, personally I don't think it's dated at all!
Anyway, I thought i'd mention you, I thought maybe you'd like it. It lasts for a while though! I was getting tired staying up late watching it despite having work the next day lol.
@Daisy, perhaps you'd enjoy the film too.
Edit: To be fair, sometimes we were 'gringos' too...
And my favorite character:
One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest
Requiem For A Dream
Silence of the Lambs
A Clockwork Orange
Over the Edge
The Breakfast Club
No Country for Old Men
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

^Man, I read Gone Girl and it was soooo fucking painful to get through. I kept hoping it would get better and it kept staying bad. It was all about people I didn't like, behaving in ways I didn't like, with plot twists I didn't believe.
Never again. That author is off my list.
I looked at her pictures and thought she might be EIE, but LIE makes sense. The plot of Gone Girl is basically two intelligent people trying to outwit each other, which is pure Gamma. Normally, I enjoy stories like this, but in this case, the protagonists were unpleasant. Also, some of her character's interactions with others were either stilted or unbelievable, which is not a problem that an Fe-dom author would have. The plot was very logical and tied everything together, but it had far too many coincidences and seemed more like an intentional logic puzzle meant to dazzle, rather than a story which supported the characters. The plot was actually more of a character than the main characters.
In any case, I don't think that every LIE I encounter is necessarily someone I'd like to spend time with, and the author of Gone Girl is a person whom I'd avoid.
All Batman movies are good movies and I like the Hunchback Of Notre Dame. Mars Attacks, too.
Well, the protagonists are supposed to be unpleasant. You're not supposed to feel a damn thing for each other. Even though, I did find myself relating to Nick in a big way.
That's quite a common criticism. Can you mention an example of an interaction feeling stilted? There's plenty of those in where it's simply Amy's faking it in her diary.
I'm with you there. She's pretty hot though
To tell you the truth, reading the book was one of the most unpleasant experiences I've had recently, and revisiting it just promises to extend that unpleasantness. The writing itself was good enough to cause me to want to read more in the hopes that the plot would eventually mean something or I might eventually care about the protagonists, but that never happened. The book was one long, very long, waste of my time. One thing I'm trying to do for myself now is to minimize the pure shit I encounter every day, and that book summed to a pretty big pile of it, so I won't be saying anything more about it.
Sorry if my criticisms of the book seem harsh, but it robbed me of many hours that I won't get back.

I don't watch much movies. But Casablanca is a great movie I've watched many times. Generally classics can take multiple watchings. Like spaghetti westerns, Hitchcock etc.
A true sense-perception certainly exists, but it always looks as though objects were not so much forcing their way into the subject in their own right as that the subject were seeing things quite differently, or saw quite other things than the rest of mankind. As a matter of fact, the subject perceives the same things as everybody else, only, he never stops at the purely objective effect, but concerns himself with the subjective perception released by the objective stimulus.
