Critch, you must be a fan of Evil Roy Slade, right?
I only watch the Rec-room scene with Reba... Makes the movie....
Apparently I'm picky or out of date about movies.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
The Silence of the Lambs
Fatal Attraction (should probably be mandatory for a few of y'all, LOL)
Courage Under Fire
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)
Million Dollar Baby
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.
Treasure of the Sierra Madre
The Maltese Falcon
