Top Ten Tuesday: Ten movies I’ve watched over and over and over


Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, featuring a different top 10 theme each week. This week’s topic is a movie freebie — basically, anything at all so long as it has something to do with movies.

My movie-related TTT is about my movie equivalent of comfort food — the movies I love, for various reasons, that I can and do watch over and over and over again. All of these make me happy, in different ways, but I’ve yet to get tired of any of them.


1) Love Actually

2) The Harry Potter movies

3) Brigadoon

4) Serenity

5) Hair

6) The Princess Bride

7) The Lord of the Rings movies

8) Bride & Prejudice

9) Monty Python and the Holy Grail

10) A Knight’s Tale


There are actually quite a few more I could list, but I guess I really should stop at ten.

But wait! A bonus round!

Looking at my DVD collection, I really want to include these, which aren’t movies, but I’ve watched them a zillion times anyway, so how can I not mention them? Here are three TV collections that always make me happy:

  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer
  • Firefly
  • Battlestar Galactica


What’s your movie-related TTT list about this week?

  1. Great list! I’ve watched several of these over and over too, especially Serenity. I love that movie and the show and everything about it. A Knight’s Tale cracks me up these days. I saw a meme a while back that had a picture of it that said something like “What are King Robert Baratheon, Vision, and Wash doing with the Joker?”
    And it’s so cool to see Brigadoon on your list! Some days I feel like the only person who even knows it exists. I was totally named after heather flowers in the song “The Heather on the Hill”

    • Browncoats unite! I love Serenity and Firefly so much. 🙂 It is so cool that you were named for the song from Brigadoon! That movie is so swoon-worthy. I really need to watch it again over the holidays. 🙂

    • Thanks! I just rewatched all of Firefly earlier this year, when I introduced my son to the series. My daughter and I make a point of watching Serenity at least once a year too. 🙂

  2. I have definitely seen the Harry Potter movies more than once… I want to watch the first one every time it’s snowing. 🙂 Great list… a few of these I’ve never even seen before!

          • My biggest issue was not being able to by Cordy and Angel as a couple. I think that will always shadow my feelings of the show. But it was really good, particularly the first and second season. (Though I love the puppet episode, and I LOVE the episode where they revert to their teen personalities.)

          • The puppet episode is amazing, and I love the teen personality one as well. And I agree about the romance with Cordy, and I kind of hated the Jasmine storyline too. But there have also been amazing moments, like Angel with baby Connor — oh, and I love the Pylea storyline too.

          • I did love the Pylea storyline. And I did like the Connor story, even though he’s like Dawn in that fans usually hate him. I also wasn’t a huge fan of Jasmine, though no matter what I see her now she’s always Jasmine. LOL
