I haven't seen The Little Mermaid, and I'd knock out Ratatouille and Wreck-It Ralph in favour of Treasure Planet and Lilo & Stitch, but otherwise our lists overlap a lot. :)

I wanted to include Lilo and Stich but I lacked space in Top-10-list. The Little Mermaid is IMO the best Disney (despite lacking good songs).

I used to go to sleep every night with a movie on, usually the same one played 3-4 nights in a row before changing it up. My favorite was probably mst3k version of A Touch of Satan.

Purely animated? If so only the hand animated movies?  We need rules darn it, otherwise you are just creating anarchy and pandemonium on this thread.

As for twice in a row movies they are usually new (to me) movies that demand attention and rewatching (think Criterion kind of movies....like Armageddon) , or "chicken soup" / old classic /seasonal movies I grew up with and are kind of a part of my life. 

When I was younger I would have watched a lot more comedy, I used to watch my favorite comedies ad nauseam, but that burns out after awhile.  I refuse to watch Duck Soup or Airplane more than once every  5 years for example. I don't want to ruin there greatness more than I already have.

Even still, don't watch many movies twice in a row.  The last three I did were An American in Paris, The Red Shoes, and. The Most Dangerous Game, and those were months ago when I was sick.

For some reason, I rarely want to watch movies two nights in a row. Men in Black, the Shining, and Star Trek: First Contact, I guess.

Unless this is really just a favorite movies question and I'm missing the point lol.

It's loosely based off a Pushkin story.  The movie was shot in Prague, which is why it looks so authentic.  Perhaps one of the few advantages of the communist yoke was that it was so inept, some older historic places never modernized and remained relatively pristine.  Anyway, it's a movie I love dearly, but it does have story problems.  But visually, casting wise, and of course acoustically, the film is top notch.  Milos Forman is a hit and miss director...but he always manages to make his films interesting somehow.

I never really got the appeal for Silence of the Lambs, it just screamed like the work from a hack. Anthony Hopkins as Lecter made me laugh.

I don't know how you can watch Misery twice in a row though.

Ben Hur is one of my chicken soup movies.  I watch it all the time when I'm sick. So I watch that twice in a row sometimes.

Lord of the Rings I try to catch with some of my aunts every Christmas, but I usually don't watch it twice in a row (I usually just want to watch all three if I watch just one).  That's also a good chicken soup movie.

Goodfellas come to mind off the bat, so many memories from "go home, and get your shinebox" to "you think I'm funny"  to the layla piano scene with everyone getting whacked, including Tommy, to the Diner scene with Jimmy wanting to set up Henry. The movie holds up beautifully, while Raging Bull maybe Scorsese best, Goodfellas is my favorite of his work. I Thought it would make Ray a star. The soundtrack rocks too. Anybody want to argue Marty not the best director ever hehe.
