Right now, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse. Just finished my fourth/fifth watch 😅

Of all time? That's much harder for me to choose... Kung Fu Hustle is definitely very easy to rewatch. Highly recommend if you haven't watched it.

Same! I've seen Spider-verse thrice now since the first time a few weeks ago!

I still tear up at the final Peter Parker/ Miles Morales moment 😭

Of all the Spiderman movies, it's the most "mature". So little of that "golly gee I'm new" BS that plagues the other ones ...And they even make a running joke of the whole "how we got here" thing.

And that's without factoring in the absolute artistry of the animation.

Twice in the theatres, once, so far, since it came to NetFlix. Also bought it on BD, but have yet to crack the wrapper on it.

This movie is one of the few where if I scroll over it on Netflix, I will always watch the little clip of it that auto-plays. Love love love this movie!

Heist movies are amazingly re-watchable. Ocean’s 11 all day.

Oh man that’s another one of my all time favorites. I will watch basically any Denzel movie without getting tired of them.

Original only, not the dodgy remake

Respectful disagree. I’ve probably seen the remake at least 10 times, and I liked it quite a bit better. However, I will say that the car chase in the original is spectacular.

I actually think Fury Road (and Mad Max II) is a better heist/chase movie (though definitely less whimsical).

It's such a good movie to wind down from work, as it presents you a more relaxed work place. Kind of :)

I think still has to be the original Blade Runner (Director's cut).

Every time I watch it I'm in awe at how it really makes you feel like it's a glimpse into a World rather than just a story that comes and goes.

Yup. One of the ones on my top-5.

Jurassic Park comes to mind for me. I swear it never gets old.

Iron Man, the first MCU movie, is also incredibly re-watchable. Especially after Endgame made so many callbacks to it towards the end.

Oh, Ben. I watched this movie on VHS every day after school for years, and two times or more on the weekend. The soundtrack was taken off Spotify, and on the way home from rehearsal this week, I discovered it's been put back up. I've been listening to it nonstop this week.

I don't rewatch it now as much, but I don't know when anything recent will surpass my childhood obsession with it.

Ugh. I want to just go back now after Endgame and rewatch every MCU movie in chronological order. Problem is, I have so little time to do that and there are so many hahaha.

KungFu Hustle. No matter how many times I've watched it, it's always still funny. But only if you're into cheap slapstick jokes.

Also Christoper Nolan's Batman series. The dark heroic vibe of Batman and the enemies in those movies somehow just sticks, they don't go away after many viewings.

It's not about romance, it's about communication. I watch it several times a year.

It's even better if you've read Pride and Prejudice (or watched the version with Colin Firth). There are a number of parallels.

Either Scott Pilgrim vs the World or Hackers. Both are masterpieces.

Here's some trivia for you:

Scott Pilgrim is based on the Plumtree song entitled "Scott Pilgrim". Plumtree is an indie rock band from my hometown of Halifax, Nova Scotia.

And not just any indie rock band from Halifax, Nova Scotia, they were my sister's friends! My sister was even their "manager" or something. (Nothing official, just helped out early on, and I might be misremembering)

Anyway, I have never even seen the movie but I very much remember Plumtree as my sister's friends' band.

Lately, I'd have to say Thor Ragnarok (probably one of the best entrances ever of a super hero and just a hilarious and great action movie), The Lonely Island's Bash Brothers and Kung Fury.

Ragnarok is, perhaps, the best of the mainline Avengers movies. Really hoping Taika's second crack at Thor is even better.

Ragnarok is definitely the funniest movie in the MCU.
