    Many have said Pulp Fiction, and I'll add Jackie Brown--great movie. Other can't-turn-off movies include Departed, Wild At Heart, Raising Arizona, The Big Lebowski, Three Kings, Badlands (Martin Sheen at his Sheeniest), and Wall Street.

    "Family Stone" - a few of the characters align with members of my family, so it's always entertaining

    Aaaaaa!!! I had forgot about Smokey and the Bandit!!! I have two different versions on DVD around somewhere: the old one with the original audio effects (original car and truck sounds) and the remastered version with better video quality but also re-recorded audio for the car and truck (boo). I once saw a copy floating around online where someone took the original audio and grafted it on to the updated video, wish i had gotten that.
    I also have an LP of the soundtrack :)

    guess i watch that over snd over a bit :)

    I love the opening credit scene, music, cinematography etc.

    Some movies that I enjoy shutting off my brain to:

    Casablanca (I find the lack of Bogie in this thread... disturbing)
    The Warriors, Escape from New York -- they kind of blend into each other, no?
    The Right Stuff
    Sense and Sensibility (the Emma Thompson one)
    Pelham 123 (the 1974 one, of course)
    The Odd Couple, and its unofficial sequel Grumpy Old Men
    Breakfast at Tiffany's
    The Awful Truth, The Palm Beach Story -- another pair of movies that are basically the same, and of course I love them both
    Star Wars (1977)
    Kurosawa: Yojimbo, Sanjuro, Seven Samurai
    Miyazaki: Totoro, Porco Rosso

    ...and some more that I'm forgetting, I'm sure

    Safety Last comes to mind. Made a century ago, and it hits like it was released last Friday. Acrophobia!

    Just about all the movies by the Coen Brothers.

    PT Anderson’s films too. There Will Be Blood

    8 1/2 and La Dulce Vida by Fellini, I’ve seen those two again and again.

    Tarantino, Scorsese and Coppola (Francis Ford) have made some great films too.

    I almost forgot A Hard Day’s Night.

    Jackie Chan's Legend Of Drunken Master and Who Am I. Amazing stunt work not to mention the fight choreograhy.

    For visual effects, I like Avatar the best.
