    Event Horizon is fantastic and endlessly rewatchable after smoking a fatty or eating some shrooms.

    @Ben Klumaster- when I was in highschool, the grade above me was obsessed with the movie to the point where history class was more about repeating as much of the movie as you could than anything that it was supposed to be about. >,> So I think you're rather lucky. That being said- it holds up, even after all that :)

    I <3 Huckabees is something I can watch over and over.

    (RE: Python - I used to love it all. Can't watch it any more because I've watched it too much. The humor has become too familiar, and nothing surprises. Same problem with all the Douglas Adams things. I get the jokes, but they seem more clever than funny because there is no more surprise. Both Python and Adams humor machinery is too obvious for me.

    That said, I was camping a couple of years ago and a scouting troop was camped nearby. I woke up one morning to some 14 year old boys cracking each other up by essentially reciting the whole screenplay of Holy Grail back and forth to each other. I felt the torch had been appropriately passed, and all was right in the world.)

    @mjmartinejohn: I didn't want to say In Bruges because I've only seen it twice, but on the second watching I got a distinct feeling I would be watching it for years to come.
    I like the way some films are rewatchable because they're so dense with material that there are always things that take you by surprise (Aardman seem pretty good at it, probably because it takes them so much work per second of film anyway) while others just have moments so well delivered that remembering it never comes close to the experience of seeing it again.

    @ Greasemonkey

    Especially when viewing in slow motion. Sick

    In Bruges is so great that a friend of mine who mostly just likes bland mainstream movies is in love with it.

    I may very well be alone here, and the other movies that come to mind have already been mentioned (The Jerk was the first thing that came to mind before I'd finished reading mjmartinejohn's post), but Drowning Mona is something I can watch every couple of years and still crack up. Especially at 'Shit salad?'

    I watch EASY MONEY and BAD SANTA once a year. Something about the idea of the criminal that can never reform. It's funny b/c it's true.

    Man, so many of these movies are classics in my mind, but there are a couple that I have never seen. That makes me super jacked to hit Suspect video and get me some movies.

    In Bruges wins for the solid dialogue alone.

    What are movies that you remember for dialogue???

    Ghostbusters, obviously. There was a year there where I wanted to be Peter Venkman when I grew up.

    V for Vendetta. Maybe not the whole movie, but the bit where Evie is in Prison and gets the toilet paper notes. I don't know exactly why, but something about the way this lesbian girl reached out to share her life story and offer a bit of love and comfort to another person is just great. Especially since by doing this she unwittingly unleashed this terrifying force of retributive justice that ultimately destroyed those who murdered her. It just makes me well up a little bit.

    Just rewatched Blazing Saddles tonight. I always forget what a masterpiece of comedy it is.

    God, I love Blazing Saddles.

    Also Noises Off - never fails to leave me hurting with laughing.

    Already mentioned but ALWAYS great - Spinal Tap. Dr. Strangelove ("Mine-shaft gap", "precious bodily fluids" "take it up with the Coca Cola company"), The Big Lebowski (DUH! Greatest movie ever made).

    WAITING FOR GUFFMAN. Better than Best in Show.
    IN THE LOOP. Malcolm Tucker for the fucking WIN.
    PULP FICTION & RESERVOIR DOGS. The two best movies of the 1990s.
    HEATHERS. I was OBSESSED with this movie.

    I could watch WIZARD OF OZ and SINGIN' IN THE RAIN with my eyes closed and tell you what comes next.

    THE PRODUCERS (the ORIGINAL, NOT Mel Brooks' naked cash-grab the remake) and THE PARTY are two more on the desert island list.

    Oh THE PARTY. <3
