I can honestly say that I've thoroughly enjoyed Half-Baked every time I've watched it, but I'm not so sure that's a result of the movie itself. If I were to watch it in the, um, proper state of mind, I don't think I'd enjoy it much at all.

Kelly's Heroes, Patton

I just bought both of these on DVD. Kelly's Heroes is a classic!

If it has John Wayne or Clint Eastwood in it - I'll watch. I have collected most of their movies; but if it's on, I'll watch it again and again.

I'm addicted to westerns and war pics. On the weekends, when I'm not watching sports, my TV stays on either Encore Westerns or AMC.

Tombstone (I think I have this one memorized)

O Brother Where Art Thou? (Really, anything by the Cohen brothers)

Silverado

The Princess Bride

The Longest Day

Battle of the Bulge

I love Sergio Leone spaghetti westerns. I just watched a special on this a couple weeks ago with interviews by actors like Eastwood, Coburn, Lee Van Cleef, Eli Wallach, and other American actors. The first thing most said was "What does an Italian director know about the American west?"

I definitely loved the Trinity (My Name Is Nobody) series with Terrence Hill and Bud Spencer.

recovering alcoholic sheriffs - Dean Martin, Robert Mitchum
sheriff sidekicks - Walter Brennan, Arthur Hunnicut
young gun - Ricky Nelson, James Caan

Same storyline.... a sheriff, and cohorts, defending the town, against belligerent outlaw elements in the town.

Yeah I can't wait for that Band of Brothers (Pacific) either, hopefully it's even close to a quality film as the original. Loved 12 angry men also both the classic and new versions. It's rare to find a film that mainly has just one location the entire film and it's compelling to boot.

Also I see a few people listed Groundhog Day that's a tough one for me to avoid. Murray was awesome in that.

Yeah the last few years I have come to appreciate Westerns and War movies much more. I used to avoid them like the plague for whatever reason.

Does that one scene where they're on the boat and he's talking about the sinking of the USS Indianapolis still give you chills? That scene is scarier than most any other part of the movie. The way the lines are delivered, everything.

I was 8 when that movie came out and my father took me to the drive inn to see it. The part that got me then was where they're diving on that wreck and the head appears in the hole in the boat. I jumped something awful then. Now the scene I mentioned above seems to be the most chilling.

So many Germans act like I can't possibly be American because I don't like Spencer & Hill. Half of them refuse to believe me when I tell them that those two aren't Americans and are actually Italians.

The only movie I ever saw in the US involving either of those guys was "Superfuzz" starring Terence Hill, only because it was on HBO a million times in the '80s. Of course, I lived in Salzburg and the Austrians couldn't quite understand the fascination Americans had with "The Sound of Music." We actually had to rent it and show it to them because most had never seen it.

I am a big movie buff. Most of the stuff I watch over and over tends to be pre 1975 horror & pre CGI action. I can't stand dramas. Comedies tend to be hit or miss. I do tend to like the goofy ones (Airplane, Top secret,

-Clint Eastwood/Sergio Leone 'Man with no name' western trilogy
-The five Dirty Harry flicks
-Terminator
-Predator
-Mad max 2 (Road warrior)
-Aliens
-Diehard
-Lots of Jackie Chan & Sammo Hung's Hong Kong flicks. They did some amazing stunts in these flicks
-Akira Kurosawa's samurai flicks (Seven samurai, Ran)
-Pre 1975 Godzilla & other Japanese 'giant monster' flicks
-Everything starring Paul Naschy. He is a Spaniard who made a ton of cheesey horror movies in the 1970s.
- Everything directed by Mario Bava & Dario Argento (Italian horror/suspense flicks)
- Everything by Guillermo del Toro (Hellboy, Mimic, Pan's Labrynth)
- Big trouble in little china, Halloween, Escape from New York & most of John Carpenter's flicks
- The 1930s-1940s Universal monster movies
- The 1950s-1970s British horror films starring Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee
- The 1960s Vincent Price horror flicks
-Certain fun 1908s horror flicks: Night of the comet, return of the living dead, fright night, night of the creeps, the blob remake,
-Sean Connery & Pierce Brosnan BOND movies

V for Vendetta

I found that movie to be too "crowded", hard to follow.

I really enjoyed the movie, but I think I know what you mean. I don't want to say it dragged at any point, but there were a few moments that had me thinking, "Couldn't they have found a better way of doing this?" It was a pretty simple plot, overall, but I think they over-elaborated some less-needed parts and under-elaborated some of the more important ones.

I remember when I was a senior in high school, the movie Poltergeist was on cable *constantly*. And often I watched it. Pretty entertaining stuff.

Trying to follow everything that was going on. It was definitely one of those movies you had to watch and not miss one second of it, or you were lost because there was so much they were throwing at you.

I'll have to give it another watch.

Movies like the Prestige and Illusionist were movies that I thoroughly enjoyed that were somewhat similar. I really loved the Prestige. Every time I've watched it I see things that went on that lead me to a different interpretation.

I think 3:10 To Yuma was that way too.

They are movies that challenge you.

I really love both of these movies, of course I am big fans of Paul Giamatti and Christian Bale also.

Which makes me think of another one to put on my list. I never get tired of watching Sideways which has become one of my all-time favorites. Can't believe I didn't think of it before.

I don't like re-watching most movies. Just get bored. A few however I do watch a lot. Ten Commandments. I see Charlton Heston when I read the OT. The Outlaw Josey Wales. Dunno why really. But I love it. The Wizard of Oz. Okay, I'm an old goof. Heidi. The Shirley Temple version. I still can't understand how they could take her from her grandfather! The Lord of the Rings. I can watch it start to finish if I have a full day with nothing to do. The extended version. I've read and re-read the books, and watched and re-watched the movies. Now if they could do The Sword of Shannara Series the same kind of justice.

I saw Goodfellas 12 times when it came out....with about 10 different people.

When HBO was showing Collateral and Kingdom of Heaven on heavy rotation in summer of 2006....i think i saw it so much i could recite all the lines myself.

The Bourne movies.

"The Breakfast Club" is a classic 80's movie that I could watch once a week.

I've watched "A Christmas Story" about 10 times as well. TNT bought the rights to the movie I believe, so it's on alot during the Holidays. Ralphie in that bunny outfit is a riot! That lamp is pretty funny as well.

Gladiator

I have an amusing story about this movie when it first was released on DVD for rent.

I went to the local video store, grabbed the case off the shelf and took it up to the counter to rent. My wife and I were really looking forward to seeing it. I got home, wife was sitting on the couch, and I popped the movie into the player. It seems someone at the store had, at some point, put the wrong movie into the Gladiator case. We were watching a gladiator movie alright. But it was a porn movie called "Lesbian Amazon Gladiators".

My wife almost choked on the popcorn. :lol:

Old movie musicals - namely Astaire & Rogers, and most of Gene Kelly's. There is one movie that I love to watch when I'm eating dinner: Who's Killing The Great Chefs of Europe? - love the locales and the food preparation.

BTW, I've got the 20th anniversary edition of Spaceballs and have been watching that a lot.

Of course, around the holidays - Miracle on 34th Street (1947 B&W please!), Holiday Inn, White Christmas, The Bishop's Wife, and A Christmas Carol
(1951) get ample playing time.

Not big on movies other than comedy there is only one that I have watched over twenty times and it's BLAZING SADDLES. Hard to believe only one person included it. Just out in the last month or so on DVD is EVIL ROY SLADE, an old movie made for TV from 1972, second only to Blazing Saddles for comedy,,, check it out.

Hush now. There is no way ID4 is strictly worse than Battlefield Earth or, for that matter, Superman IV, any of the Highlander sequels, Catwoman, Elektra, xXx:State of the Union, Invasion, or The Chronicles of Riddick. And it's probably not worse than guilty pleasure flicks like Crank, Shoot 'em Up, or Smokin' Aces. I actually went to the theater to see Elektra before watching a Steelers playoff loss and I'd have to point to that movie being the low point of my day. Most of those films need to be re-titled just to let the viewer know what they're in for:

Ridiculousman IV
Highlander 2: The New Batch
Elektra: Dr. Frank-N-Furter's Revenge
zZz: State of Ice Cube's Career
The Chronicles of What the Hell is This?!?!?
LOLCatwoman: EPIC FAIL!!

I actually own some of those other movies so, yes, my "redeeming quality" bar is set pretty low when all I want to do is rest my brain cells for a couple hours while watching stuff blow up. ;)

And don't even get me started on Gigli. How that film gets even 2.3 stars out of 10 on imdb.com is one of life's great mysteries.

I love that movie. I have no idea why, but I love that movie. it just looks pretty. Anyone that can kill a man with a teacup... well, that's just made of win.

My ID4 rant.

forget the fact that the entire alien super network was taken down by a Mac. I totally buy that as I think Steve Jobs is an alien. Someone explain to me how any american pilot can have less than a day's training in a 50 year old (at least) UFO designed for aliens with 9 foot long arms, AND have him outfly the entire TELEPATHIC alien armada?

I'm great at suspending my disbelief. I totally believe the dinosaurs are real in Jurassic Park. But this... this? can't do it.

I will usually stop and watch just about any classic movie if I happen across it. Unfortunately, that was easy when I was a kid; there were classic movies on all the time. Now, I have to pick them up at the library. Here are a few that I could watch over and over:



Caine Mutiny- I think this is one of Bogart's greatest performance, but Josť Ferrer's performance is the one that has always captivated me.

Double Indemnity- Definitely not your "My Three Sons" Fred MacMurray

Cape Fear (original)- One word people, "Mitchum". Who on earth thought a remake of this could possibly be more frightening than him?

Treasure of Sierra Madre- If only to hear that guy say, "We don't need no stinking badges!"

Bridge over the River Kwai- The second best war movie ever made.

Guns of Navarone- More David Niven, can there possibly be too much (with the exception of Please don't eat the Daisies)?

African Queen- Hepburn and Bogey. Any questions?

Inherit the Wind and Twelve Angry Men- I put these together because they are the type of movies that will never be made again. There's way too much talking in these movies. Then again, none of the movies in this list would get made today.
