Blue Dog : 5/18/2024 4:50 pm : link
but a more recent movie that I have watched a bunch of times, not an overly serious one but a feel-good one - Chef with Jon Favreau. Great cast, simple but well done. There's also a few Christmas ones that I have to watch every year and I never get tired from, but I think that's true of a lot of people.
Lots -- will try to avoid those already mentioned

I hated Gump when first seeing it and still think it shouldn’t have won Best Picture over Shawshank, Quiz Show, & Four Weddings & a Funeral. I was never a fan of Pulp Fiction.

That said, Gump has grown on me over the years.

I find Stone’s political films to be weirdly rewatchable, ‘JFK’, ‘Nixon’, & ‘W’.

I think ‘JFK’ is weirdly entertaining, though it is absurd AF.
