One of the funniest and most warm-hearted movies.

Thought about this list in terms of all the way from my "tape it off HBO" days in the 80's as a kid, to now, so some are more on the younger side. Not sure what the criteria is as far as number of watches, so I put those that I know watched more than 10 times or thereabouts.

Alien(s)
Army of Darkness
Big Lebowski
Big Trouble in Little China (I think I've watched this one close to 30 times)
Blade Runner
Close Encounters
Die Hard
Dumb & Dumber
Ferris Bueller's Day Off
Fifth Element
Gattaca
Ghostbusters
Gladiator
Goonies
Groundhog Day
Heat (what is it about this one that has made so many's list?)
Highlander
Hunt for Red October
Indiana Jones Trilogy (not KotCS)
Jaws
Karate Kid
Krull
Last Dragon (who's the master, Leroy?)
Last of the Mohicans
Last Starfighter
Lord of the Rings trilogy
Lost Boys
Planet of the Apes (Heston, not Wahlberg)
Predator (even the second one with :whispers in raspy voice: Danny Glover)
Real Genius
Red Dawn
Shawshank Redemption
Silence of the Lambs
Sneakers
Stand By Me
Stargate
Star Wars IV-VI
Terminator 1 & 2

Big Trouble, like the Tim Allen movie? Don't get me wrong, I think that movie is friggin' hilarious. It's just that you don't see many people talk about it.

Big Trouble in Little China.

Tim Allen....God no....

Biggskip, if you haven't seen Big Trouble in Little China, stop what you are doing right now and go grab a copy of it.

As John Carpenter and Kurt Russell both discussed at one point during the commentary edition, you're either going to get on board with what this film is or you'll just think its ridiculous (I'm sure I'm paraphrasing). I've showed it to several friends and have only had maybe one or two of them really appreciate it for what it was in 1986. All the rest just looked at me like I wasted an hour and a half of their life. Jerks.

My whole family still quotes lines from this movie.

I'll have to see if it is available at the library (a.k.a. welfare Netflix).

American Psycho
No Country for Old Men
Snatch
Wedding Crashers
MacGruber
Dumb and Dumber


I'm more of a 1 and done with with movies type of guy, though.

It's a great movie, and a whole lot of fun. And strangely doesn't follow Carpenter's typical Assault on Precinct 13 format.

BTiLC is in the same category as Buckaroo Banzai for me - movies that I watched over and over 25 years ago, but now find almost unwatchable.

Definitely have movies like that myself, but BTiLC has too much nostalgia attached to it for me to abandon it like that. That and Jack Burton as the reluctant anti-hero-gone-down-the-rabbit-hole seemed so far ahead of other films coming out in theaters during that time. There was really nothing else like it in my mind. Not even Buckaroo Bonzai.

Fun Fact, that script was originally meant to be a western.
