Rewind. Play.

I don't know about you but I do love movies. It's an escape from reality for about two hours, it's an inspiration, it can make you happy, sad, scared or just plain fun. Including every one's individual favorite movies there are always a few movies that you can watch no matter what time of day and no matter when you catch it. These movies aren't always necessarily your all time favorite but they are the movies that make your top VERY re-watchable movies! Does that ever happen to you? I always wondered why channels bother playing movies on TV with all the technology available nowadays, why watch a movie with commercials? I answered this question for myself the other.

There is nothing like flipping through the hundreds of channels now available and not being able to find one thing to watch (so frustrating!) until viola! one of your favorite movies is on TV!! Even though you are aware that it involves commercials you stop to watch it, even if it's half way, a quarter of the way, edited, you will stop to watch it. I believe it's a psychological trigger; you see the name of the movie on your guide and your mind is automatically happy because something you really enjoy watching is actually on.

Naturally, everyone has their own set of movies they will stop to watch. Mine are as follows:

  • The Shining
  • Mean Girls
  • Mrs. Doubtfire
  • The Karate Kid (old and new)
  • Gran Torino
  • Casino Royale
  • Golden Eye
  • Tangled
  • Sex and the City Movie
  • He's Not That Into You
  • Forrest Gump
  • Breakfast Club
  • Batman Begins
  • Pirates of the Caribbean 
I'm sure I'm missing a few however these are definitely my top re-watchable movies. What are yours??
