Well, I'm gonna say Rocky II. The training scene where he catches the chicken, and the run through Philly with all the kids behind him-just amazing.

There's quite a few movies I could watch on a regular basis:

Terminator 1 + 2
Romy and Michele's High School Reunion
The Breakfast Club
Pulp Fiction
Heathers



Sweet dreams......

Any of the "five Jersey trilogy" movies. Usually I stare at them not being able to decide which one of them to watch. So I force myself to pick one at random. It always ends up being a good choice.

The LOTR trilogy is another one that I like to watch often. Sometimes not even the entire movie, if time doesn't allow it. But I always enjoy it and like to quote along.

Sin City is climbing higher and higher in this list as well.

El Dorado (imdb.com) John Wayne, Robert Mitchum, James Caan, Edward Asner. Directed by Howard Hawks. IMHO a fantastic western, with some of the best actors in the business turning in some of their best performances. The movie was essentially a remake of Rio Bravo (imdb.com) (John Wayne, Dean Martin, Ricky Nelson, Angie Dickerson, Walter Brennan, Ward Bond, Claude Akins. Also directed by Howard Hawks) which is another movie I could view every week and never grow tired of watching.

I think the relative performances of Arthur Harris (as "bull") and Walter Brennan (As "stumpy") make these movies so much fun. I also like the fact that El Dorado has the "young guy" as Mississippi in James Caan while Rio Bravo has Ricky Nelson as Colorado. But I like El Dorado best as well because the real bad guy is Chris George.But on the other hand in Bravo, we get to look at Angie Disckenson (She is very hot in this film).


OK, I could watch These two every week as well....

Forty-five posts and no one's mentioned "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective" yet? Alllllllllllrighty then.

In the spirit of Cerebus' "hidden shame"-theme, mine would have to be "French Kiss", with Meg Ryan and Kevin Kline, because it is a total chick flick but Kevin Kline is AWESOME. I can never pass over it when it's on.

Super Troopers... I know, I know. My ex dragged me to see it in the theater, I didn't even laugh. It was just so juvenile and silly. I swear, I didn't laugh until Farva was naked in the police station. But we rented it from a video store a few months later and I found myself cracking up every time. It's pretty funny.

Another movie is Clue. It takes me back to when I was a kid and I still love it. Of all the films that are being remade these days, I think this would be a great one to do. Hell, with all the characters, you can have 30 sequels. (I'll let one of our math whizzes figure that out.)

Or The Good Son with Macaulay Culkin and Elijah Wood. It's a great drama and Culkin was a bad ass. I loved it.





Once upon a time, a woman was picking up firewood. She came upon a poisonous snake frozen in the snow. She took the snake home and nursed it back to health. One day the snake bit her on the cheek. As she lay dying, she asked the snake, "Why have you done this to me?" And the snake answered, "Look, bitch, you knew I was a snake."

Interesting. MY all-time favorite movie has not been mentioned.

Midnight Run.

It's hard to judge how many times I'm seen it. I'd guess I've seen the opening/first hour maybe 150 times. However, I've only seen the last line "Looks like I'm walkin'" maybe 40 times...

I guess that's what I get for playing the hardcore version of the Midnight Run drinking game.

P.S. We've adapted it to Bad Santa. Even harder.

Lemme guess: every time someone says the F-word, every time someone gets knocked out with one punch, every time they change method of transportation and every time someone says the name "Alonzo Moseley", right?

Actually I think incorporating all of those would require a liver transplant.

Caddyshack was never introduced to me as a child, so while I knew all about it, I'd never actually viewed the movie. So in place of that? Happy Gilmore. I swear to god I've seen that movie on tv more times than I can count and yet I usually leave it on. There are other movies that are like this, but this was the first to jump to mind so I figure that must make it the winner.



Ghostbusters and The Matrix would be strong runners-up

It's good to see that the WWE isn't backing away from Batista or Cena. There's still some questions lingering over a few of the draft moves they either made or didn't make (Jericho being a prime example), but the stage is set for a solid run to Summerslam that may send the indicator down. The longer Triple H stays away is also a plus...

Every Saturday night about ten years ago, we all went to the same club, went for the same breakfast (which now I crave, I love Johnny Jacks), and went and home watched the same movie.

The fact that they fell asleep is irrelevant. At least I got to watch the game show twice.

Nonsense! I know it's an unpopular opinion, so I won't attempt to convince anyone that Shawshank is a pretty mediocre movie. I'll just say that I thought it was. It seemed too predictable for me, too mawkish at points, with Andy being a little too perfectly uplifting of a character. But that's me. And, yeah, if I flip by TBS or TNT (whichever one is showing it both Saturday and Sunday for the next month), I'll stop and watch until the commercial; at that commercial, though, I go hunting through the channels again. It just grates on me when taken as a whole.

Some other movies that other people mentioned (or I just thought of) that I could see every week and not complain:
Lebowski
Miller's Crossing
Raiders of the Lost Ark
Amadeus


Especially the last one. Even if the dialogue is starting to fray the edges of your brain, the music is enough. On more than one occasion, I've been eating a sandwich and drinking water at 2 or 3 a.m. (trying to keep the next day's hangover at bay) and flipped the channels and stumbled on the first 20 minutes of that movie, then proceeded to watch it all the way to the end.

Shawshan Redemption is a great great movie, but I just don't think I could watch it all the time. I'd want something less serious and more fun.

Castaway if I'm with my girlfriend.

If I'm by myself it would be between Back To the Future or Transformers: The MOIVE. Yeah, I know it was only a big ad for the toys, I still would be able watch it on an endless loop. Call me nuts.

I'll vote for the commentary as well. The Red Dwarf commentaries are very, very funny. I love the non-stop ripping on their acting. I got the Sergeant Bilko set for my birthday this year and the extras are great.
