Movies you will watch every time you stumble across them

Postby Kress » Fri Jan 26, 2018 5:51 am

So you're flipping through the channels, and come across a movie. Which ones do you watch no matter how many times you've seen it?

For me, Shawshank and Forrest Gump come to mind.

Shawshank is maybe the gold standard.

For me:
Aliens
The Fugitive
The Rock

Those are probably my top three.

Only two I can think of off the top of my head at the moment (that haven't already actually been said):

Independence Day
Pirates of the Caribbean

But mostly Independence Day.

Con Air is golden.

For me it's probably:
The Rock
Bad Boys
Army of Darkness
Any 007 film

Edit: How could I forget the cinematic masterpiece that is Demolition Man?

I thought Tombstone would gst more love. Outside of the horseback scene, the movie is packed with action, great quotes, and is an all time great movie IMO.

Tombstone was a good one, no doubt. So was 310 to Yuma with Russell Crowe and both True Grits.

I don't really flip through the channels any more, and haven't in a long time. If my TV is on here, it's either kids stuff or I'm watching with a purpose (a game or streaming a show or movie). But once upon a time:

Thirteen Days (I was enamored with JFK growing up)
Tommy Boy
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (one of my favorite films)
Dead Presidents

I left off many that were named already. But these are some others I'd always stumble upon and if I did I was locked in until it was done.

I don't channel flip either. But I do scroll through the channel guide sometimes. That's when I might see some movie that I really liked and tune in even if it's in the middle of it.

There was a period of like 4 months where it seemed Casino Royale was on every day. And always different channels. I'd always flip to it. And it always seemed to be right around the casino scene. After a while my wife would get pissed off. Which led to me setting an alert for the movie whenever it was on.

I'd think watching a live movie would be pretty bad.

Any Star Wars movie not named The Phantom Menace.

Anything from the terribly bad Predator franchise. It's a weakness. Hold me?

Sandlot.

The Martian.

MCU movies.

Top Gun.
