I can't stand that movie, because I can't stand Tom Cruise. I used to like him, but he is a horrible actor, and an even bigger jerk as a human being.

Movies I can watch over and over are: "Master and Commander", "Spartacus", "The Godfather", "Jaws", "Alien", and "Toy Story."

I like old movies. My favorite so far has been “12 o’clock high” WWII movie. Superb cast and dialogue. This movie is still shown in the Air Force and civilian companies for leadership training.

My wife and I always end up watching that to the end, over and over. Also INDEPENDENCE DAY, any of the DIE HARD movies but especially I and IV, and CLIFFHANGER. We've seen these pictures so many times we can quote the dialogue back to each other.

The Fountainhead is one of the funniest movies ever made. I literally laughed until I cried the first time I saw it.

My list:

The Longest Day
The Mummy
Pride and Prejudice the 1995 version (yes I know it’s girly, but it’s also like 8 hours long, so there’s alot of watching in there)
Ocean’s 11
The Whole Thin Man Series
Anything James Bond, except the Timothy Dalton one and the ones where Roger Moore was really, really old
Apollo 13
Lord of the Rings
Errol Flynn stuff
Anything with Bogie
Anything with Cary Grant

Yes, I like lighter fare. Stuff that doesn’t ring you out. I watch a LOT of movies - we have movie nights at my house with friends every week. They grew up without movies, and it’s fun to rediscover all the classics with people who have never seen them before.

My biggest hits with neophytes:

The In-laws (the old one with Falk and Arkin)
Secondhand Lions (the best movie no one ever saw)
October Sky
Casablanca
Forbidden Planet
The ORIGINAL The LadyKillers, with Alec Guiness and Sellers

Oh, and any and all Jimmy Stewart movies
And most Katherine Hepburn movies. Especially the one with Jimmy Stewart and Cary Grant, but I can’t think of the name of it just now.

The Fugitive was on earlier. Had I the time, I'd watched it longer than just up to the train crash.

Die Hard's always fun. (The first one.)
The Lord of the Rings -- particularly the first one, when everything was new.
The Shawshank Redemption, which is IMO the best Stephen King adaptation, with only minor changes needed for the conversion.
