Who and Why do you rent or buy movies nowadays? I'm wondering who re-watches the same movie more than once?

The only movie I watched more than once was Napoleon Dynamite (like 10 times). I'm on netflix, amazon prime video, hbo. What is the appeal to renting or buying movies? Just wondering
Watching movies are fun. Rewatching some of my favorite movies is fun. The nostalgia? The happy feelings a favorite movie can bring? I have a few hundred movies in my iTunes collection and will happily rewatch many of them and will probably watching them all even more in the next few years as my daughter grows up. Me and my wife rewatching The Middle Earth movies pretty much annually. Same with Star Wars. Same with the MCU movies. We have dozens of musicals (old and new) that we enjoy. Plus you get all of the special features with iTunes Extras. Movies are just like music to me. It's easy to rewatch and enjoy.

Drama ($24.99) ('https://itunes.apple.com/us/movie-collection/fox-4k-hdr-drama-collection/id1321794122'): Life of Pi, The Martian, The Revenant
This is the only bundle worth buying IMO. Three solid releases.
The rest all have one good movie out of three.

In the UK we seem to have lots of individual movies at £4.99 rather than this offer.
Link pls.
