Movies You're Sucked Into Watching


#1

Anyone have a movie or movies that you get sucked into watching everytime they are on tv? Everytime I see Walking Tall on tv I end up watching it, even though I have seen it tons of times already.


#2

Inherit the Wind, starring Spencer Tracy.

clip is 9 minutes long, and that 9 minutes is better than all the drivel out there today.


#3

I don’t care if people think the movie assaults one’s intelligence or you can find faults with everything that happens in the movie but Forrest Gump is that movie for me. It can be five minutes in or five minutes from the end of the movie and I will watch it I think it is that good. Other movies that I can watch non stop are T2 and Caddy Shack.


#4

Shawshank Redemption.

just the other day I was checking my “can’t buy me love” file to make sure it was the real movie. skipped 20 mins in to check and ended up watching the whole thing. great movie

there are others but these 2 came to mind


#5

Remember the Titans.


#6

Kickboxer.

What’s the deal with the movie Kickboxer and…being on TV? I’ve watched it probably 25 times. I used to like it as a kid but getting older I realize that its pretty gay. Most of the time Van Damme is jumping around in an oily loin cloth and sprinkling Thai toddlers with water in a playful yet seductive manner. And then the bar scene…apparently wearing pleated khaki pants and a string-backed tank top make you a hit with the local ladies.
