    Rocky ( and sequels 2 & 3 )
    First Blood
    Saturday Night Fever
    The Notebook
    Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
    The Bridges of Madison County
    Raging Bull
    Good Fellas
    The Last of the Mohicans
    The Big Lewbowski

    Perhaps there are more, but only two come to mind

    My Cousin Vinnie
    Bowfinger

    Oh alright,

    Pyasa

    For me to watch a movie more than once, it has to be about words.

    I am also shocked by scifes lack of cineastic experience.

    Besides those already mentioned, of which I can watch most repeatedly, Harold and Maude ( I know, nerdy and lame, but I adored the film since I was 14, nostalgic).

    Jurassic Park
    Independence Day
    LOTR FOTR
    Bad Boys II
    Predator II
    Space Chimps
    Ocean's Twelve
    Rush Hour
    Rush Hour 2
    Matrix Reloaded

    (What makes an addictive movie is properly inserted music or rather music place right on the onset of the beginning of a very good sequence or scene, good dialogue (some dialogue is crappy and corny as sh**), originality, and something new you notice each time you watch the movie.

    No. It would destroy my first impression, and may make me even critical towards films I supposedly 'liked'.

    There are NO movies that I could watch over and over for they would only become redundant and very boring after the third or fourth showing. That is they were shown back to back right after each one.

    Pretty much all of disney's /pixar's animated classic movies. Most comedies and action movies. Movies that aren't very deep. One's that are just fun to watch. If the movie makes me think or gets me emotionally upset, while the movie may have been great, I rarely have a desire to see it again any time soon.

    An italian film called Il Piacere directed by Joe D'Amato.

    The daughter of a aristocrat's dead mistress comes to visit him, and all hell breaks loose when she discovers her mother's audio recordings of her secret diary.

    Greatest love story ever lensed!

    I saw Passion of the Christ when it first came out and that movie was so disturbing I have no desire to see it again. How can you watch the torture over and over again? Doesn't it give you nausea?

    Mullholland Drive, is one of those I also keep coming back to wondering if I finally figured it out.

    Braveheart

    Strange Brew

    Napoleon Dynamite

    Red Heat, Gina Gershon is just plain hot in that one.

    Clash of the Titans, The scene where Zeus helps Perseus made an impression on me.

    Wall Street, Michael Douglas at his best.

    Rocky III, him taking down the big russian never gets old. The last Rocky movie was good too but the last Rambo was a bit over the top near the end. Very seldom do I check my watch during an action sequence but the body count at the end of that movie was astounding.
