    A great movie for me has an engaging plot, characters that I care about and top notch performances. I watch the following every time they pop up on TV (usually TCM)
    The Quiet Man
    Maltese Falcon
    She Wore a Yellow Ribbon
    The Hunchback of Notre Dame
    My Darling Clementine
    Dr. Strangelove
    Master and Commander
    Unforgiven
    Young Frankebstein

    I never feel that my time is wasted watching a classic more than once (or 10+ times in the shows above)

    Apparently I'm picky or out of date about movies. I have several dozen that I'll rewatch over watching almost any of the latest ones.

    "The Hunt for Red October" is probably my overall favorite. I almost know all the dialogue from memory, but I still rewatch it every year or two.
    I'm old enough to remember when we were afraid of the USSR and had to practice getting under our desks in elementary school (as if that would've helped!).

    A couple that are pretty good and interesting (for different reasons) that you may have never heard of:
    King Creole (in b/w; great director and cast--and what a future waste of talent)
    The Case for Christ (biographical of an atheist Chicago Tribune reporter)

    Some on my rewatch list, in no particular order:

    The Hunt for Red October
    Saving Private Ryan
    We Were Soldiers
    Apollo 13
    The Silence of the Lambs
    Fatal Attraction (should probably be mandatory for a few of y'all, LOL)
    Shawshank Redemption
    Courage Under Fire
    The Recruit
    Breach
    Message in a Bottle (OK, maybe a girl movie, but I'm a girl)
    A Perfect Murder
    Double Jeopardy (although I almost can't watch crazy Ashley anymore)
    Entrapment
    Million Dollar Baby
    Contact
    Untouchables
    Basic Instinct
    Jaws
    Planes, Trains, and Automobiles
    The Naked Gun trio, when I need some silly

    There are some others, but that's a long enough list.

    Anything by John Wayne after about 1940. Go to any streaming service and they still charge for them.
