    OK I'll be the first to admit it. Pretty Woman. Unless Predator is on of course.

    Depends on me mood. Especially for dramas. Comedies snag me more certainly:

    O Brother, Where Art Thou
    The Russians Are Coming, The Russians Are Coming
    Ed Wood
    Monty Python & the Holy Grail
    The Odd Couple (the original 1968 one)
    Nutty Professor II: The Klumps (for the family & Granny scenes)

    If I get a glimpse of any of these, it, like, ties the whole day together, man.

    Among the movies that i've watched so many times but if I'll come across by zapping on tv i'll probably watch again are : The Godfather, Once upon a time in west,(just yesterday :lol::lol:) Rocky (the first):):) Rambo (the first), Callaghan, Reservoir dogs, there are few others....

    These are movies that are on tv very often and if it happens that i'm watching tv i'll stop on that channel.

    I'll never watch any of them on Dvd or on demand but i just can't resist if i see them by chance.

    Open Range, if at any point during the movie I happen onto it while channel searching I pull the knob on the dash and set the maxis. I don't care where, start, middle, finish. I especially like coming in when they are eating their candy bars and revealing secrets. I love it when Charley tells Sue at the end, go on now; How's this gonna work if you don't do what I say? Then Sue gives him that look I've seen here at the house about a million times, and kisses him! I like the part where the Marshal is gong to have words with Boss and Charley, and goes on for a bit and old Charley puts his hand on his gun, and the marshal backs down saying, I'll be seeing you two real soon.

    The Unforgiven, pretty much the same thing, they're basically the same movie anyway. More Recently, I kind of hate myself for it, but John Wick one and two, I don't want to actually say out loud how many times I've watched those things.

    In short, I like stories that run to the warm, and fuzzy, with a bent toward emotional interchange, as long as there's plenty of shootin' involved! I figure John Wick three will be kind of like Steel Magnolias. (to me)

    Saving Private Ryan! Another great one that I forgot. The first 15 minutes are incredible.

    You know I loved The Old Man and the Sea. I don't know if I could watch it now though knowing it was an obvious attempt to milk an Oscar out of the Academy for Tracy in his waning years. I watched it years ago when I was much more impressed with, and had a lot more respect for being old than I am now that I've actually gotten there. I did find out first hand how he felt about the lion cubs and dreaming though, I would much rather dream about Toto and our days together, than a pretty girl.

    I love the great Westerns, Kubrick, Kurosawa, Coppola, stuff like Apocalypto, most of the TCM ones, but I am a sucker for a couple of stupid comedies I will decline to mention here for all of your sakes.
