Is there a film that you could pop in the dvd player anytime and just sit down and watch it?

for me it would have to be daredevil. i just love that film. better then spiderman in my opinion but not as good as xmen2.

i can watch it over and over again. it moves so fast and just keeps you engrossed. i dont know what it is about it.

and also

Lord of the Rings. It's around 6 hours so far, probably will be 10 total when RotK comes out. But damn, there's just so much detail in it that it really takes a while to know it all. Add to the fact that I could concentrate on a movie and I still wouldnt know the name of the main character, and it can last for a pretty freakin' long time.

And Spiderman beats Daredevil! Teh spidey nerd beats blind losers! :p

- Better of Dead
- Kurisawa's 'Ran'
- Eraserhead
- Blue Velvet
- The Good the Bad and the Ugly
- Dirty Harry 1-3 (DH, Magnum Force, The Enforcer)
- Enter the Dragon
- Peckinpaw's Straw Dogs
- Peckinpaw's Cross of Iron (James Coburn as a Nazi soldier saying 'good kill' after the opening massacre is something ...)
- Blade Runner
- Marx Brothers - esp Duck Soup and Night at the Opera
- Original King Kong, Frankenstein, Dracula from 1933, Nosferatu, Metropolis, Abbot and Costello, Them, etc.

... and who knows how many more ...

(and AstroToy7 - I loved the Twin Peaks series, but Fire Walk with Me seemed like over the top pseudo-mystical soft-porn ... but that's just me ...)

6th sense, vanila sky and titanic *SPOILER* down.

The LOTR films and all of the Starwars films could be and have been watched by me time and time again

I also can watch some comedy films like Austin Powers again and again.

some films I will never watch again are:

1 Titanic, It sinks, there i have saved you a couple hrs of your life.

2 vanila sky, it was all a dream, again a few hrs.

3 AI, way too long for not a lot to happen.

4 6th sense, brilliant film, but wen you know he's dead theres no point is there?

[edit]
Seeing a couple more lists ...

Really can't believe I forgot Woody Allen - some of my all time faves: Sleeper and Zelig, amongst many.

Also forgot Mel Brooks - Young Frankenstein, Blazing Saddles, etc.

Indiana Jones - really just Raiders for me.

I also like Jackie Chan movies, the good ones... not his new stuff... things like Rush Hour, Shanghai Noon, Legend of the Drunken Master, Mr. Nice Guy... those kind of movies... not stuff like the Tuxedo and The Medallion... even though they're still funny... they lack the action needed.

Given his age, I can see why but DAMNIT JACKIE CHAN IS IMMORTAL!!!!!!!! Go back home Jet Li... cheap matrix ripoff... only good movie of his is Romeo must Die...:)

Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

... hmmm ... they just did the 30th Anniv Edition ...

I'm not looking forward to THAT being 'updated' (read: trashed) like everything else - Cat in the Hat, Grinch, Charlie's Angels, Starsky and Hutch, BattleStar Galactica, and on and on and on ...

Twin Peaks quote, "Mike, IS the man!"

Apart from Eraserhead, Fire Walk With Me is the most Lynch has been allowed to be himself in any directorial project.... The results are obvious....astounding, and pseudo-mystical soft porn is a great description man ! I loved Ran, a great take on King Lear, still, Throne of Blood is absolutley amazing... the storyline and performances are overpowering, you almost forget you are watching in B&W I often find....

Kurusawa Ran is all I have on DVD right now ... I'll undoubtedly get Seven Samurai and Throne of Blood before long. Not only do you forget about the B&W, the subtitles don't matter, either.

LynchI still remember seeing Wild at Heart ... that club scene at the beginning ... going from weird corny-hornyness to a bone-chilling bloodbath ... those are things that Lynch does better than anyone.

I'll add another of my faves - The Last Starfighter. I still love that one - my kids watched that yesterday afternoon and I couldn't keep myself from popping in every few minutes.

I will strongly disagree here. The humor is absolutely dismal. There were no saving points to this movie. I never laughed, i never even cracked a smile. Tom Green is to comedy what EA Games is to James Bond.
