How did I I leave out the Mad Maxes! All of them, but especially Fury Road. Could just leave that one on all the time and it wouldn't bother me.

Some great films in this lot but I'm amazed that nobody's added Withnail & I to the list...

Taking a slightly different tack...

A lot of films I think are endlessly rewatchable... but if I was to write a list of films on my Video shelf that I've actually seen more than 5 times (other numbers are available) it would be (and this is definitely coloured by the fact I have less time to waste these days*):


Star Wars 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, R1 (Solo on 3)
All Bond films except Die Another Day, Quantum of Solace, SPECTRE.
All Star Trek films except INTO DARKNESS
All LOTR
HOBBIT (Just... Unexpected Jouney most)
ROBOCOP 1 and 2
ALIEN 1, 2 and 3
King Kong (30s and 00s)
Saving Private Ryan
Battle of Britain
Fury
A Bridge Too Far
Jaws
CE3K
Inception
Nolan's Batman trilogy (Rises only just)
Burton's Batman and Batman returns (I suspect I won't revisit)
Reeve's Superman 1 and 2
Godfather
Once Upon A Time In The West
Leone's Dollars trilogy
Last Of The Mohicans
Jurassic Park 1, 2 and 3 (2 the least)
Captain America: First Avenger
Iron Man 1
Butch and Sundance
Toy story 1 and 2, Up, Monsters Inc
Conan the barbarian, Predator, Commando, Terminator 1 to 3
The Rocketeer
Dune
Cloud Atlas
Mission Impossibles
Mad Max 2 and Fury Road
Avatar
John Wick
DREDD
Miller's Crossing (I love the Coen's but this is the only one I come back to)
XMen and Xmen2
2001
Calamity Jane
West Side Story
ZULU
Die Hard and 3 and 2
ZULU
Shaun of the Dead
Pacific Rim
Flash Gordon
The Thing
Seven Samurai
Yojimbo
Sunshine
Blade Runner
Kill Zone
Ip Man
Groundhog Day
Ghostbusters (og)



* So for example THE RAID is great but I've seen it twice and that's probably not going to increase...


Be excellent to each other. And party on!

Raiders
Terminator
T2
Robocop (original)
Total Recall (original)
Dredd
New Hope
Empire Strikes Back
Superman 2
Alien
Aliens

Unlike Colin I don’t necessarily feel compelled to watch them when they are on, but I would be comfortable/ happy to dip in at any point and just start watching from there. Indeed at one point Terminator seem to be on BBC1 very often - I have seen just the last 20/ 30 mins loads of times.
