No love for From Russia With Love, designprofessor?

I'll second RJman's mention of the Avengers, if we're talking TV shows. I'll also add the Laurie/Fry Jeeves series.

I watched this again last week for the first time in about 3 years. It still amazes me how every scene still holds up so well since the first time I saw it in theaters to the 39,498th time on DVD. It just doesn't get old.

I finished watching Inagaki's Samurai Trilogy for, at least, the twentieth time last night. Despite the fact that Janus needs to give it a new transfer (sooo terrible), it really can't be beat for its grandeur and some astounding cinematography. Love it.

8 1/2
The 47 Ronin
The 400 Blows
The Adventures of Robin Hood
A Story of Floating Weeds/Floating Weeds
Au hasard Balthazar
Band of Outsiders
Battleship Potemkin
Brazil
Citizen Kane
Do the Right Thing
Early Summer
Elevator to the Gallows
Faust
Grand Illusion
The Great Escape
The Hidden Fotress
Humanity and Paper Balloons
Ikiru
Kagemusha
The King of Kings
Kuroneko
Late Spring
The Life Aquatic
The Magnificent Ambersons
Onibaba
Pandora's Box
The Passion of Joan of Arc
Ran
Rashomon
The Royal Tenenbaums
Rushmore
Sansho the Bailiff
Seven Samurai
Sullivan's Travels
Throne of Blood
Traffic
Twenty-Four Eyes
Ugetsu
Viridiana
Winter Light
The Wizard of Oz
Yi Yi
Yojimbo/Sanjuro

I'm sure I'm missing a bunch, but I long for these movies at any time.

In no particular order, these are films I can watch over and over and over and over. Many of them have little artistic merit. They simply entertain me endlessly. Certainly, the list is incomplete.

If we were to include television, as RJman does, well that's another matter. I would immediately agree with his Avengers selection. After all, I bought my first Lotus Élan because of Mrs. Peel!

Greaser's Palace
To Catch a Thief
Chinatown
Casablanca
Blade Runner
African Queen
Rebecca
Gaslight
Wuthering Heights
El Topo
Night Porter

Laura (including Burt Reynold's Sharky's Machine)
Butterfly Collector
Jean de Florette
Manon de la Source
Dr. Strangelove
Lawrence of Arabia
Rancho Deluxe
Grand Prix
Casablanca
The Big Sleep
North by Northwest
Giant
An American in Paris
Manchurian Candidate
Body Heat
Winter Kills
American Werewolf in London
The Usual Suspects
Solaris
(the original, not the George "Looney" theft)
The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
