Which 5 Films Could You Watch Over and Over Again for the Rest of Your Life?

CNN wants to know what your top five most rewatchable movies are and why. Can you come up with your list? 

Recently, CNN tweeted out a challenge to its followers. They want you to pick five movies that you could watch over and over again for the rest of your life. Assuming you're in relatively good health and have longer than five days to live, this could mean watching those films thousands of times. 

Of course, this begs the question...what are your top five? 

I had to labor over mine but I finally settled on...

1. Raiders of the Lost Ark 

Action, adventure, romance, killing Nazis, need I say more? 

2. When Harry Met Sally

Love, laughs, and the question of whether or not men and women can truly be friends! 

3. Waking Ned Devine 

A gem about friendship, the meaning of life, and making your death worthwhile. 

4. Casablanca  

A miraculous movie that has something new hidden in its script every time I watch it. 

5. Die Hard 

Make the popcorn, settle into a comfy chair, and let John McClane keep you safe. 

You can track the results using  on Twitter. 

Tell me your top five in the comments!

For me, it would have to be "Fight Club," "Birdman," "Jurassic Park," "Blade Runner 2049," and "Logan."

It's way too hard!!! I guess I would choose 2 high quality entertaining horror/SF (Blade Runner, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Alien or The Empire Strikes Back), a comedy or a film about life (Something about Mary or La Dolce Vita perhaps) and a 2 huge masterpieces from my favorite directors (Kubrick, Malick, Lynch, Weerasethakul, Tarr or Tarkovski). Because if those are the only films I'm about to watch for the rest of my life they need to be diverse and different but also rich enough so I'll always discover something new. I would focus on what I gain from them (philosophically, intellectually, spiritually) and how I feel after watching them. I would probably focus on length too. Having Satantango or Once Upon A Time In America would be a good idea.
