Sometimes when a movie you’ve seen a hundred times pops up on your TV or Netflix’s “Watch Again”, you can’t help but go make some snacks and relive the adventure again, and again. There’s something very comforting in knowing where the plot is going and what the characters are about to do or say. It’s almost as if you can see into the future, not to mention you start noticing minuscule details and word choices that you’ve never paid any attention to before.
So, I do understand that this list will be a hit or miss, since it’s a mix of my favorites and generally outstanding movies. If you don’t like some of the films here, then A) you’re wrong; and B) show me your own list in the comments!
These 7 movies will never get old no matter how many times we watch them!
1. The Cabin in the Woods
First time I was watching this film, I thought “well, it’s a nice horror flick”, until that part when we piece the clues together and get that much needed exposition about all the monsters, sacrifices, and the inevitable end of the world. Every time you watch it, you understand how crazy detailed the writing was.
2. Ace Ventura
Meet my favorite guilty pleasure comedy of all time – “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective.” Is it goofy? Sure. Is the plot full of holes? Maybe. But is it hilarious? Oh hell yeah! The intro alone gives me a good laugh every time, but the cherry on top is that scene where Ace realizes Einhorn is Finkle and Finkle is Einhorn. Comedy gold!
3. Forrest Gump
“Life is like a box of chocolates – you never know what you’re gonna get” – probably, the most well-known quote from Forrest Gump, and let me tell you, this movie is a gold mine of great quotes. In a nutshell, Forrest Gump has a soul and he’s not afraid to show it. Also, all those little Easter eggs like “Apple”, the smiley face etc., are just awe-inspiring to look at. Wow, it’s been almost 3 years, time to rewatch this movie again!
