Movie Madness

So I was listening to Kidd Kraddick this morning and they brought up an interesting question that got me thinking. They asked “What movies have you seen more than any other?” Or, in other words, “What movie, when it’s on can you not help but watch?”

So, I ask this question of you. Give me a list of the 5 movies that you have seen more than any other. Mine are…

1. Breakfast Club – It was on TBS every weekend and you just can’t stop Emilio Estevez
2. Notting Hill – Not only is this my favorite movie, it is also so quotable that its ridiculous
3. Pleasantville – Another one of those classics. “You can’t stop something that’s inside of you”
4. The Cutting Edge – “Toepick” ‘nuff said. Well, actually it’s not enough. How about a hockey player and an ice skater falling in love…on the ice.
5. The Neverending Story – “Bastion, Please, Give Me A Name”, I will give you a name…Awesome. Give me that piece of sand and I will gladly remake Fantasia.

And, as an aside, I have to throw in one final, yet disappointing movie that I have seen so many more times then I should, and yet still enjoy it.
6. Howard the Duck – When he rocks out with that guitar and Lea Thompson starts dancing I can’t help but enjoy it.

So, let me know what you can’t help but watch.

That is all,

Here they are...

1. Star Wars: Return of the Jedi... When I was a kid, they showed this on TV all the time and it was my favoriet... EWOKS BABY!
2. The Neverending Story - Like Trin, I have seen this soo many time!
3. Matchmaker - This under the radar Janine Garofalo film is freaking great and the best line, "I would like to make a call to Boston from the smallest F#$%ing room in the world!"
4. Office Space - Trin and I loved this movie the minute that it came to the movie store shelves... we watched this movie more before it was popular than most people have seen it since!
5. The Last Samurai - I really hate Tom Cruise and thought this would suck, but every time it is on HBO, I watch it! It is awesome, thought it reminds me of Paul Mooney Goes to the Movies, the skit from Chappelle.."I'm gonna make a movie called "The Last Nxxxer on Earth", starring Tom Cruise!
