Films on TV you can't avoid watching


Recommended Posts

Although I never played the game at all well, Baseball movies make me stop surfing and put on a fielder's glove:

"Damn Yankees"

"It Happens Every Spring"

"Pride of the Yankees"

"Bingo Long..."

"A League of Their Own"

"The Natural"

"Bull Durham"

"The Sandlot"

"Major League"

"Field of Dreams"

"Bang The Drum Slowly"

and one of these days, I'll catch all of "Cobb"

"Is this Heaven? No, it's Iowa." :coolio:

that's a great way to spend a weekend....

I like your list Ten Pea. Allow me to replace Die Hard with the original (Natalie Wood) Miracle On 34Th Street and I'm witcha. Plus there was a movie a few years back with Greg Kinnear called Dear God that had that Christmas feel to it. I think it also starred Laurie Metcalf. Check it out.

"Apocolypse Now " especially the newer 'Redux' version which has replaced many missing scenes not included in the original theatre release , and the story makes more sense now, and has more impact . We even get to see Harrison Ford in a cameo as an army intelligence officer as well as a long scene where Martin Sheen meets some French plantation owners who refuse to leave Vietnam . The encounter with Col. Kurtz is lengthened also .

This director's cut adds so much to this movie ( usually they don't add much ) that it seems an entirely different movie in some respects-- certainly a much more complete and satisfying story. .

This is gonna sound weird but:

The Brave Little Toaster.

That was my favorite movie growing up and it just pulls me in. Now that I'm 18 though I've found some very troubling themes of death, angst, lonliness and such that I never noticed as a kid.

Others would have to be:

The Good, Bad, and the Ugly

The Longest Day

Candyman (any of the 3)

South Park: Bigger Longer and Uncut

Bevis and Butthead do America

A Chiristmas Story

Spiderman (all)

X-Men (all)

and any TMC classic or b-movie that would be prone for Mystery Science Theater 3000 I'll watch.
