I love movies, that's a fact. I love watching them. I love the feeling of settling down and just quieting the world around you to get lost in someone else's life. However, though there are multiple great movies in the world, I could name 100, I'm not the type to like rewatching. My brain somehow can't process the idea or purpose of watching a movie whose plot unfolds in a way you've already experienced before. But, there are a few exceptions. There's a short list of movies that I can rewatch, movies whose plots never become boring even after multiple reruns. These are the movies I consider my favourites, the movies I consider the excellent among a sea of the greats. And I'll share them with you:

Breakfast at Tiffany's

I've rewatched this movie at least five times. I've watched it so much that I can quote lines from multiple scenes. There are multiple controversies towards this movie, with people calling it racist and whatnot, and though I do admit some scenes are racist, I don't ponder on them as the directors admitted that it was meant to be a joke, not taken seriously. The story of Holly Golightly and Paul Varjak is seriously phenomenal. Two people trying to find themselves in the hectic city of NYC, immediately befriending each other upon first encounter. I don't exactly know what I like about this movie, but whenever I watch it I feel comforted and at home. It's my top rewatched movie, and I wouldn't be surprised if in a year or two I can quote the entire script.

La La Land

I've rewatched this movie about four times. That makes it the second most rewatched movie for me. As a romantic and fan of musicals, I fell in love for this 21st century movie musical within the first 15 minutes of me watching it in the theatre. I remember sitting there, in the darkness, with my popcorn and the movie playing out in front of me, and thinking: "This movie is going to be one of my favourites". And I wasn't disappointed. The story of Mia and Sebastian is beautifully tragic, and not only can you understand each of their stories, but you understand why what happens, happens. The soundtrack is also full of songs I can recite every lyric to, and if I were to make a list of albums worth replaying over and over again, this would definitely take the top spot!

THIS. MOVIE. IS. AMAZING. I've only rewatched it twice, however upon writing this and looking at these fantastic images, I will very much rewatch it after I post this article. Once again, I'm a helpless romantic, therefore this classic story of boy + girl friendship-turned-relationship is so sweet and cute to me. Rosie and Alex have been best friends since they were young, growing side by side till a problem splits the both of them apart. I like to think that they're two parallel lines, side by side, till one of them starts to try to intersect with the other (fall in love with the other), but the other changes course so that they're still kept parallel to the faulty line. Once the faulty line goes back to it's usual route (feels rejected, decides to just leave it), the other one does as well, before it then starts to intersect (fall in love with the other), adorning the role of the "faulty line". That's just how I imagine it, but maybe it's just my own wild imagination that is capable of understanding such theory. Starring the lovely Lily Collins and Sam Claflin, this movie is for every romantic out there, or someone who just wants to see the beauty of a golden friendship!

Mamma Mia

The ever-cliche story of kids growing up to their parents' unhealthy Beatles or Elvis obsession is one heard through and through, but the story of growing up to the soundtrack of Mamma Mia is still quite out-of-the-ordinary. I first watched this movie when I was a kid, and though I didn't keep count, I think I've seen this movie at least seven times now. Now that I think about it, this might the actual top-rewatched movie for me, but due to the fact that I barely remember the second, third, and fourth time I rewatched it, I don't count it as "properly rewatched". This story takes place in Greece, following the story of a young to-be married girl named Sophie, who's on the journey to find who her real father is in a sea of her mother's past affairs. This movie is amazing, the soundtrack is brilliant, and if you haven't watched it yet, watch it now! A sequel is coming out this year after it's 10 year anniversary! I can't believe it's been ten years since I've watched this, and though it doesn't include as much of Meryl Streep as I'd like, I'm still excited to watch it!
