    I don't know, I rarely watch a movie twice. But "Memphis Belle" I have on tape. Movies aren't like music albums, which get played a hundred times.

    Mine tend to be either the one's that inspire me somehow:

    -Life is Beautiful
    -Goodbye, Lenin!
    -Pollock
    -The Pianist
    -A Beautiful Mind

    Or else savvy 1 intelligent, determined, capable person against a creepy (or merely not so smart) system type things like

    -Enemy of the State
    -Minority Report
    -Inside Man
    -Usual Suspects

    Or else (often dovetailing with category 2), anything SF or fantasy:

    -Matrix (the first one)
    -LOTR (esp. 1 and 3)
    -Contact
    -Shark Attack 3: Megalodon (and basically anything on the Sci Fi channel where something prehistoric mutates and wreaks havoc, all the more so because of some greedy scientist/mayor, only finally to be undone by an upstanding fellow of moderate intelligence paired with a female scientist marginalized by her peers, ending with the two of them somehow laughing despite the fact that 100s of people, including 6 of their helpers have just died gruesome deaths and many of their body parts are still floating around and/or dangling from tree branches)

    1. Lawrence of Arabia, because it inspires me
    2. Diehard, because its the classic escapist action movie
    3. Breaking Away, because it was filmed in my college town, and I'm an extra :cool:
    4. My Cousin Vinny, because it never gets old to me
    5. Pretty Lady, because its such a Cinderella thing

    I'd do better to watch these before and during the playoffs, but I'm usually so obsessed that I'm looking at my old game tapes from the night before and even digging up last year's playoff games to watch. It's just all Pistons, all the time around here for me during the Playoffs. But if I had to take a break from my obsession, my top five would be the list above.

    Fun question to answer. I just joined NetFlix so I'm looking forward to renting some of the movies on the posts from this thread.

    I've got a movie that you can't stand even watching half of it...Lord of the Rings:eek:. That movie is terrible. Half of it all the guys are walking on the mountain. I couldn't watch that whole movie let alone 100 times.
