30 Most Rewatchable Movies of the Modern Era

I ran across one blog's list of "most rewatchable" movies the other day. I know there are a million of these lists but it provides a starting point for this post.

For me, I agree with most of them and, embarrassingly, have not seen a few of them! Off the top of my head, I'd add True Romance, Aliens, Hangover, Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, Napolean Dynamite, and Elf. I have to keep reminding myself this is "REWATCHABLE" not just favorite. There are quite a few favorite movies that I would not want to put on over and over and over.

I know I'm going to kick myself for ones I did not immediately think of as soon as you guys suggest a few others. I also starred the ones that I think are completely untouchable. 😉

30. Can’t Hardly Wait
29. Mean Girls
28. Grosse Point Blank
27. Ocean’s 11
26. Clueless
25. The Wedding Singer
24. Caddyshack
23. Empire Records
22. Galaxy Quest
21. Dodgeball
* 20. Star Wars
19. There’s Something About Mary
18. Big Trouble in Little China
17. Anchorman
16. The Incredibles
15. Stand By Me
14. Dirty Dancing
* 13. Groundhog Day
12. Happy Gilmore
11. Tommy Boy
10. Shaun of the Dead

    +steph wanamaker That's one I also still have not seen. 🙂

  5. Matt Ingrouille says:

    I still need to watch Darjeeling Ltd.
    Also, Amelie is fantastic and always worth watching. So beautiful and I see new things each time.

  6. Scott Cramer says:

    +Erin Davila-Onu Wow! Some of these are iconic across most demographics. What would be on your list?

  7. steph wanamaker says:

    same with edward scissorhands and garden state  +Matt Ingrouille

  8. steph wanamaker says:

    not a fan of donnie darko but rest are spot on

  9. Jason Walters says:

    I still think The Replacements is in my top 5…

    Despite Keanu.

  10. Scott Cramer says:

    Probably worth noting that the picture on this post doesn't match the list within the post. I just grabbed a pic from Google Images that had some other suggestions.

  11. Thomas Price says:

    I can add a couple.. 

    Pulp Fiction
    Reservoir Dogs
    The Goonies
    Pretty Woman
    A Christmas Story
    Christmas Vacation
    The Matrix


  12. Jason Walters says:

    Goonies definitely +Thomas Price.

  13. Eric K says:

    What is it about Princess Bride that makes it so unique? The game of wits over a shot of iocane powder?

  14. Rita Machete says:

    Where is pulp fiction??

  15. Pat Armstrong says:

    +Thomas Price I'd add the ones you listed w/o a doubt

  16. Scott Cramer says:

    Nice add +Thomas Price! I said I'd kick myself for forgetting some good ones that I would add too. Those are definitely some!

  17. Thomas Price says:

    And of course I' know I'm missing a lot more ….

    The original Red Dawn
    ….. so many good ones!!

  18. Will More says:

    Yeah, Reservoir Dogs and also Spies Like Us and Airplane.

  19. Madeline Muñoz-Bustamante says:

    I would ditch about half of these, easily. I would switch Mean Girls with Heathers. There's a lot of Disney that I would throw on there as well– Nightmare Before Christmas, Monsters Inc, Little Mermaid, Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, Tangled, etc etc etc. I agree with your addition of Elf and Napoleon Dynamite. Is Dazed and Confused too old? Half Baked always makes me laugh and so does Grandma's Boy. Big Fish kills my heart every time, and I love it. My Neighbor Totoro, Ghost In the Shell, Howl's Moving Castle, Princess Mononoke, Akira, The Matrix, Mallrats, Clerks, Blade Runner, Inception, Blade, Underworld….

  20. Thomas Price says:

    War Games….

  21. Halfdan Reschat says:

    I began putting together a list of movies I've rewatched many times but it quickly became far too long. Instead I'll just mention a single movie which I've watched quite a few times: Tomorrow, When the War Began (2010).

  22. Mara Mascaro says:

    don't get me started:D

  23. Hermine Ngnomire says:

    Where's Friday?

  24. Mara Mascaro says:

    so…no Harold&Maude? for shame.

  25. Zara Shore says:

    Love Actually and Notting Hill are surely worthy of being included.

  26. Rita Machete says:

    I would add:

    Full Metal Jacket
    Fast & Furious (minus Tokyo drift)
    The Full Monty
    The Goonies
    Star Wars ( the older ones)
    Smokey & The Bandit (first one)
    Talladega Nights
    The Godfather
    Steel Magnolias
    The Devil Wears Prada
    Nacho Libre
    Any Almodovar movie
    Man on Fire
    Mary Poppins
    Kung Fu Hustle

  27. Gareth Owen says:

    I'm ok with Akira and Fight Club, not so keen on the others.

    Dark City
    Mr&Mrs Smith
    V for Vendetta
    Trick or Treat

  28. Madeline Muñoz-Bustamante says:

    OK +Scott Cramer you need to change the picture LMAO

  29. Scott Cramer says:

    Next time I pick a generic pic for the post. BUT, I've gotten some movies mentioned here that are new to me or I've forgotten and am looking forward to rewatching!

  30. Pat Armstrong says:

    Red Dawn (original) always, always brings a tear to my eyes.  90% of the movies mentioned would be on my long haul voyage to the stars must have movies.

  31. Tara Mulder says:

    Hmm, I haven't seen 7 of them.  But have seen all the ones in the top 15, at least.

    Zoolander is one that I find very re-watchable, and The Color Purple.

  32. Allen Simpson says:

    XI have watched and like all of these.
    I have recently added the movie "Pitch Perfect" to my list of rewatchables. If you haven't watched it give it a chance it wasn't at all what I expected and ferry funny. I regimens watching at least once with subtitle on some of the funniest parts come from a character that is almost inaudible (that's her shtick [wow droid autocorrect had a suggestion for shtick]).

  33. Halfdan Reschat says:

    +Allen Simpson, Pitch Perfect – yes, yes, and yes!

  34. Keith Cramer says:

    I seen almost all of them… The one that came to mind for me was "The Fifth Element"

  35. Yvan Da Silva says:

    You can add all the Ghibli studio movies.

  36. Yvan Da Silva says:

    Rocknrolla ! Oh yeah @Rita machete

  37. Yvan Da Silva says:

    +Hermine Ngnomire just before Saturday ;p

  38. matthew rappaport says:
