Ten Most Rewatchable Movies

Paste Magazine offers the 10 most rewatchable movies.

For those too harried to click a link, they are:

10. Goodfellas
9. Napoleon Dynamite
8. Pulp Fiction
7. Spaceballs/Robin Hood Men In Tights
6. Casablanca
5. The Princess Bride
4. The Ten Commandments
3.Animal House
2. Groundhog Day
1. The Shawshank Redemption

Their honorable mention list: Casino, Forrest Gump, Fast Times At Ridgemont High, Amelie, The Sound of Music, Inherit The Wind, What About Bob?, Snatch, Lawrence of Arabia, Hoosiers, E.T.: Extra Terrestrial, Zoolander, To Kill a Mockingbird, Pretty Woman, When Harry Met Sally, The Sound of Music, Corky Romano

I get how most of the first ten made it onto the list, with the exception of The Ten Commandments. It's one of those overdone Biblical spectacles, and Heston overacts, as usual, in the Shatner League. But Corky Romano in the honorable mentions? Somebody's smoking something. And there is ot ONE mention of a Python film. Each one of them is rewatchable as hell.

Haven't seen them all, but for sure I'd watch Goodfellas and Casablanca again, Sound of Music and WHMS. Loved Casino, but I dunno if I'd want to watch the whole thing over. I'd definitely NOT want to see Pulp Fiction, Groundhog Day, Napoleon Dynamite, Forrest Gump, E.T. or Pretty Woman again. And while I liked Fast Times a lot and have probably seen it three or four times, I think I'm done there.

I guess it just depends on taste, anyway. I love Nap. Dynamite, and could watch it again and again, mostly to hear the lines I love. And isn't it weird that Groundhog is rewatchable? I mean, it's rewatching a guy doing the same thing again and again!

No Caddyshack? No Holy Grail? Bah.
