Movies you cant live without

inspired by the thread in the muzik section - what are some of movies you watch over and over?

For me - pretty obvious I grew up in the 70s and 80s -
I've seen all of these movies over 20 times

Blues Brothers
Its a wonderful life
Raiders of the Lost Ark
First 3 Star Wars
Pink Panther Moves with Peter Sellers
The Jerk
Patton
Jaws
Shawshank redemption
Saving Private Ryan

Im sure I'll come up with a ton more but these are the first to come to mind....

lets hear yours.

The charm of fishing is that it is the pursuit of what is elusive but attainable, a perpetual series of occasions for hope. ~John Buchan

I love the older Warner Bros. classic with Cagney and Bogart too. The later are my true favorites.

I love the movie Amelie, great flick. The first time my wife and I watched in on dvd, her water broke a few minutes after the movie was over. I actually thought about naming my daughter Amelie.
Im madly in love with Audrey Tautou

THE BIG LEBOWSKI- "Thats a bummer man"

UNFORGIVEN- "The Duck I says"

CADDY SHACK- "I like you Betty"
"Its Danny Sir"

Star Wars ep IV V VI- "DA deflectalllrrr SHIELD..............IS TOO STRONG"

Kill Bill Vol 1&2- "You can get a good view of my foot from there"

RESEVOIRE DOGS- "How would you feel, if every time you had to take a piss, you had to do a hand stand?"

HEAT- No quotes, just the best bank robbery scene in any movie ever made, which has been the gold standard of gun battles in hollywood films ever since. actually I lied. Al Pacino goes " WHAT DO WE GOT!?" a lot in that one, lol.

And consolation prize goes to Man on Fire. Denzel gets all kinds of homicidal and it suprises with violence almost everytime i watch it

something clever and related to fishing

Ditto to that.

As I'm looking at everyone else's lists, I 'm seeing more movies that I didn't think of. There are some real great "guy" flicks listed here.

Oh, and then there's Amelie.

Damn it i can't believe I forgot PREDATOR- "Stick around"

Who ever posted the predator musical, genius

p.s. the new Predators aint the worste action movie i ever seen.(watching it right now) Decent actors you'll recognize. better than pred 2 3 and whatever the hell predator/alien movies they came out with. AND one of the scenes actually references predator 1, but alas, doesnt hold a candle to the o.g. pred

god DeNiro plays the ultimate BAMF in that movie. love it. Sick car chases through the narrow streets of france with an audi S8. And I know why the specialist likes it. Cuz DeNiro rocks a 1911 .45 and I quote, "It served my country well."
