    Movies You Just Have To Watch, Regardless of How Many Times You Have Seen Them

    The Arctic blast has made its way to usually pleasant North Carolina. We have 18 degrees now and it is supposed to go down to 4 tonight and 0 tomorrow night. I am sitting here browsing the forum and a post from recceranger about The Hunt For Red October film prompted me to think of movies I can't resist when they come on TV, even though I have seen them 20-30 times. Here are a few of mine, but I would be curious to hear if others have their favorites:

    Twelve O'Clock High
    The Quiet Man
    The Guns of Navarone
    The Shawshank Redmption
    Battle Cry
    The Naked and the Dead
    Battleground
    The Battle of the Bulge
    Ben Hur
    The Great Escape

    Looking at your list the first one that popped into my head was Bridge On the River Kwai. Recent ones would be anything Gandalf related.

    For a good Canuck, there is one, maybe two movies.

    Goon
    Slap Shot

    Then again, you might have to be an ex-hockey player, beer drinking Canadian to see the social importance in those movies.
    1997 R1100RT (Restored Basket Case) , 1981 KZ 440 LTD (Restored Basket Case)
    1986 K75S(the beutch), 1993 K1100RS (blown engine), 1997 Chev Short Box (4x4 with an LT1)

    Having a seven year old, my mind's mostly coming up with kid's movies. But, the few I can think of are:

    Diner
    Philadelphia Story
    Bringing Up Baby
    The Longest Day
    To Catch a Thief

    Plus many of those already listed.
