I know I could watch these movies over and over:
  1. The Mirror Has Two Faces
  2. The Little Princess - the one with Amelia Shankley. Yes, technically a mini series.
  3. Trading Places
  4. Emma - any of them
  5. Office Christmas Party
  6. Galaxy Quest
  7. Princess Caraboo
  8. The Incredibles
  9. Shrek 2
  10. The Princess Bride
  11. What Women Want

I know I've seen these at least 10x each, if not more.

In recent years, the movie I keep watching over and over is Arrival, with Amy Adams. It's a bit of a mystery, and rewards a re-watch. Love the music, too.

Older movies? All About Eve is wonderful.

Not quite so old, but a tv movie from the seventies that deserves to live on: Love Among the Ruins with Katharine Hepburn and Lawrence Olivier. Parts of it are a bit clunky and awkward, but there are some scenes that stand with the best of cinema in terms of screenplay. And her costumes are fabulous.

Holiday movies? I'm kinda burned out on the actual classics, so I tend to watch Trading Places (Eddie Murphy) and Die Hard, both set AT the holidays, if not about the season.

Still not ditching my dvds of the classics, though. I'll come back around. One I do always like to watch while baking cookies is The Homecoming with Patricia Neal, that started the whole Waltons phenomenon. This original movie is my favorite.

How could I forget The Princess Bride? Inconceivable.

And Soapdish is fun too.

Not in any certain order--just the order they happen to be in my storage drawer:

Groundhog Day
The Graduate
The Rocky Horror Picture Show
Young Frankenstein
Singin' in the Rain
Princess Bride
Any of the Thin Man movies
The Gay Divorcee (or any of the Astair/Rogers movies, but this one is my favorite)
It's a Wonderful Life
A Christmas Story
When Harry Met Sally
You've Got Mail
Meet Me in St. Louis
Price and Prejudice (Firth/Ehle version)

I think that's about it.

Someone who thinks logically provides a nice contrast to the real world. *unknown*
