Movies I never grow tired of

I never knew what to answer when being asked about my favourite movies. What's that supposed to mean? Movies that I watch over and over again? That for sure makes them somewhat eligible for being favourite. Movies that impressed me the most? Those I may not be re-watching too often, because usually they are not an easy watch and were not filmed for that purpose in the first place. But do I admire them? Well, I definitely do. And these two groups are already so different from each other (and there are even more of them), that I... I just happen not to have "favourite movies" as such. Need to come up with something else instead, I guess))

Flicks are listed in chronological order. Just because there had to be some order.
