    ITT tell us about the movie(s) that you could/have watch(ed) a million times. These might not be your favorite movies (hell they don't even have to be good movies), but they are the movies that you'll watch again and again when they come on TNT on a Sunday afternoon.

    My List:

    Goodfellas
    Casino
    The Firm
    Silence of the Lambs
    Red Dragon
    Road House
    The Devil's Advocate

    ^Funny, I always thought your answer to this question would be Leaving Las Vegas.

    none of them. assuming even the shortest movie lasts at least an hour, a million hours is well above my expected lifespan :foo::happy:

    I like what you did here.


    Gotta go with the original Die Hard. Die Harder is pretty good, but Die Hard with a Vengeance is just trying to hard.

    I think that's why I like it so much. NYC, Willis and SLJ's racial banter and Irons' German accent. All great and entertaining. I do love the first one as well, and can probably add to the list. Not a fan of the 2nd Die Hard.

    The three things you mention are all things I really like about the movie, especially the fact that the movie opens with the demolition of the historical Bonwit Teller store. That said, there's no Holly McClaine/Gennaro subplot, Reginald Vel Johnson is nowhere to be found, there is no doubting cop angle, and worst of all is that they mistimed the use of the "Yippy Kai Aye..." line.
