[dropcap size=small]T[/dropcap]here are great films that are considered masterpieces, of course, but can be difficult to watch more than once a year. The Shawshank Redemption? Loved it, but it?s a lot to take in. Citizen Kane? Maybe not the greatest party movie. Some movies aren’t THAT great, but they can be re-watched again and again. We at Crizic decided to list such movies. Take this list as a sure fire guide: there are obvious choices, like Hot Fuzz and Pulp Fiction, all of which are movies that millions of people watch once a month because they just can?t help themselves. Here are the 7 movies that you can watch over and over.
Beetlejuice never gets old: Michael Keaton is brilliant, Geena Davis is hot, and the Banana Boat song scene is always a treat.
6. Back to the future:
GET THE HELL OUT OF MY CAR, OLD MAN!
5. Hot Fuzz:
This movie is here simply because the director Edgar Wright is hands down, a genius. The cinematography of this flick is absolutely brilliant. And then, of course, there’s the writing. There’s just such an incredible amount of foreshadowing in Wright’s movies that makes you go ‘OH!’ every time you watch the movie. For example, there’s a scene in Hot Fuzz where the police gang are talking in bar, and one of them complains that Angel is wearing his stab vest: Officer 1: ‘It’s not like you’re gonna get stabbed!’ Officer 2: ‘Not by any member of the public, anyhow.’ They all laugh, and it’s a good joke in itself, but later on in the movie (SPOILERS) guess what happens? Angel gets stabbed. By who? Yeah you guessed it right. Someone from police force.
4. Pulp Fiction:
The INSANE dialogues in the movie that never get old make Pulp Fiction amazing. Not to forget, some mind-blowing scenes, and one literally mind-blowing scene. And some really great performances. Oh, and yeah; What does Marsellus Wallace look like?
3. The Big Lebowski:
The Dude. Period.
‘Joey, have you ever been in a Turkish prison?’
1. Office Space:
Why is this movie on number one? It’s probably the fact that it’s still an accurate commentary on working in a “soul sucking” job for most of us. Despite the workplace situations being completely over the top and exagerated in most cases, there’s always a little ring of truth to it. In that way it’s not really much of a stretch for some of us to relate to Peter and the gang, effectively seeing a version of ourselves reflected back to us in the film. It’s great that it’s rolled into an enjoyable comedy with tons of memorable and highly quoteable moments. Behind it all though, there is a message to those wiling to hear it. Don’t waste your life doing something you hate. Work towards finding that thing that makes you happy, then do it, seek mastery over it and be content.
