Quality and rewatchability  sometimes run parallel, but that is not always the case. Case in point “12 Years a Slave”, a masterful beautifully shot movie, but deeply depressing and traumatic to watch. I don’t think I certainly wont be watching that movie again.

So what are the most rewatchable films ever? FiveThirtyEight ran a poll earlier this week to figure out this question. Using a SurveyMonkey audience poll, they asked people to list the five films they continually go back to watch.

1,100 people voted and the results were pretty unexpected. Although in my personal opinion there is one glaring omission: “The Back to the Future trilogy”, particularly part one. Check out the top 25 below.
