"White Christmas" and "Easter Parade" go with their holidays and "Carousel" is for sometime in June, when it's bustin' out all over.

For Memorial Day, I watch "Shenandoah."

Around September 2nd, I watch "Heaven Knows, Mr. Allison."

Batman Returns, even though it is plotless, with flashes of both smart and heaping servings of stupid dialogue. I pretty much ignore it as it is on, then pay attention when Pfeiffer shows up. I always come away simultaneously floored at the art direction, the deranged 90's riot grrl Catwoman, and the irritating, pointless story.

The only film I've seen multiple times (maybe 6 or 7 I think) is "Palm Beach Story" by Preston Sturges. I have it saved in my DVR from the last time it showed on TCM. I'm a huge Sturges fan and really like all his films (there are only 5 or 6 I think) but to me, that movie was one of the wittiest films ever made. You have to see it more than once to get all the jokes since everybody's talking so fast.

I have been a movie nut since I was very young, so I've seen a ton of films but am rarely moved to see them more than once. Not sure why. I guess because there are always new ones coming out--so many movies so little time...

"Juliet of the Spirits" was OK, enjoyable mostly for Guilietta Masina's performance. You can see that this film would have a major influence visually on Bob Fosse if you've seen "Sweet Charity" (the movie).

For me the movies I can watch over and over are never my favorite movie or even close to a "great" movie. They have some undefinable quality that makes them watchable. And for some reason, they tend to be RomComs, even though I'm not a fan of RomComs.
