Most Watchable Movies

I'm sittin' here on the couch watching Top Gun for the umpteenth millionth time and dawned on me there a only handful of movies that I can just watch over and over again. Rather than just let the notion die like so many other notions that cross my mind, I decided to blog about it and make a list of the other movies I also find rewatchable. These aren't all my favorite movies, they're just ones I can rewatch. In no particular order and without a lot of thought here's the list:

Top Gun: It's stupid and I hate the theme music, but I love the jets and the story numbs my brain like cold beer.

The Holy Grail: The greatest comedy of all time. Over the years even the unfunny bit have become funny.

Road House: Hot chicks, bar fights and eastern philosophy. The whole thing just doesn't make any sense, but it's still a lot of fun to watch.

In Harms Way: A personal favorite. The Duke kicks ass with ships. OK the ships look like models in a tub but even as kids my sister and I would stay up late to watch this movie.

Dead Man: One of my top three favorite movies of all time. Recursion on film. Nobody is better than Nobody (You have to see the movie to understand that one).

Patton: George C. Scott as poet warrior. I love the contrasts in the man.

Rudy: This is just a great story that always reminds me about the power of hard work.
