    Must Watch Movies

    I'm not talking about movies you want to see, I'm talking about you have an 8am meeting, you're half in the bag already, surfing channels at midnight, and you hit that movie you have no choice but to watch. You are now watching and drinking until 3 am. My list as follows in no particular order:

    Animal House (tonight's culprit)
    Plains Trains and Automobiles
    Monty Python and the Holy Grail
    12 Angry Men (the original)
    Shine (for no other reason than the flight of the bumble bee scene)
    Die Hard (1 and only 1)
    Hunt for Red October (no idea why, can't help myself)
    Rounders
    Red Dawn (**** you Spike)

    Many other I'm forgetting at the moment.

    Re: Must Watch Movies

    I sat down on the couch in the living room to eat my food earlier today. I turned the TV on even though I knew I would only watch it for 10 or 15 minutes tops before I headed back to my room to continue my affair with the internet. But as I flipped through channels and came upon the HD section, I saw they were showing The Ghost and the Darkness, and it had just started. Two hours later, I turned the TV off and went back to my room.

    Shawshank always gets me, too. Also Lean on Me. Maybe I'm just a sucker for Morgan Freeman.
    Caddyshack, Vacation... Pretty much anything with Chevy Chase
    Independence Day
    Office Space
    Brain Candy
    Rat Race
    A few others that slip my mind I'm sure.

    Re: Must Watch Movies

    I can't answer this question. I will watch nearly ANY movie at midnight. Hell, I'll watch movies at 3 am that keep me up until 5 am even if I have to be up by 7:30 am. Some of my foolish choices include:

    28 Days (Sandra Bullock in rehab)
    Mindhunters
    S.W.A.T.
    The Legend of Baggar Vance
    Wild Wild West
    K-PAX

    And there's tons more.

    I can never stop watching Bring It On or Mean Girls when they're on.

    Yes, exactly. Even though I have it on DVD and can watch it any time.

    Princess Bride or Monty Python sucks me back to the screen it's on, but I can and have paused or been able to walk away movies all my life pretty much.

    Re: Must Watch Movies

    There really are too many movies that I enjoy watching, and it just so happens my piece of OCD occurs when watching movies and listening to music. If I catch a movie I like at the beginning, it's very unlikely I can peel myself away from it until it's over.

    Pulp Fiction
    Dusk Till Dawn
    T1
    The Good+Bad+Ugly
    Dark Star

    I saw Michael all the way through... IN THE CINEMA. Okay, so it wasn't my choice but still.

    I know what you mean, even though I hate it I keep watching it.
