When I saw this thread, I came looking for this post... and here it is. I too love Aliens and have watched it well over sixty times (by now). So, I recognised your username immediately
Ghostbusters (the original, I'm old)
Most other James Cameron movies
Serenity (also the firefly series)
The matrix trilogy
Star trek (first contact and insurrection)
Pirates of the Caribbean
The last four (yes, I have kids, but to be honest I'll also watch them alone). There are other films I love, but these are my goto items.
I've seen The Angry Birds Movie over 50 times now.
Speaking of birds...
The Maltese Falcon - 1941
Casablanca - 1942
I can't believe no one else mentioned these?
Thanks to @psionandy for the "Wrong Trousers" recommendation, that was terrific.
For those of you who, like me, were in the dark, here's a link to it on Youtube, albeit with Chinese subtitles:
Most movies I see have Chinese subtitles.
Here's a couple more I watch again and again.
That could be useful to me actually, the students here don't know Wallace and Gromit at all. Show them a cartoon from my home city, Bristol.
That's great, I hope it works out! Maybe that YT user has others uploaded, too.
@psionandy, I thought this was perhaps the best place to formally acknowledge the passing of Peter Sallis...
National Lampoon's Christmas vacation
Two War/Detective movies I watch a lot:
Night of the Generals (1967)
Off Limits (1988)
'Groundhog Day' ?
Or maybe not, or maybe it was just a dream
On a side note, I LOVE Bristol.
To keep on topic... Princess Bride
I've been watching Deadpool a lot lately. I even bought the soundtrack.
I think you mean Inception?
Oh, wow, if "Inception" met "Groundhog Day" the movie, day, and dream would NEVER END!!
I'm not sure this quite falls into this thread category, since it's a movie I watch very infrequently, but I have seen it several times and always enjoy it:
"Cannery Row" (Nolte and Winger)
It's already on my list, but this evening i dropped in "Silverado" for the first time in a long while. It really is a terrific film, and I still find it interesting that some of my favorite movies were written, directed (or both) by Lawrence Kasdan. And really, how lucky are we. Not that long ago, we didn't have the luxury of owning a movie and if we missed it in theaters, well, that was it. Even with crappy VHS we were blessed. Speaking of which, "Silverado" is one of those movies I've owned more than once.
The only negative thing I can say about "Silverado" is the very ending, when Emmett and Jake are riding off, and Costner (Jake) turns and delivers the final line of the film: "We'll be back!"
It's been 32 years since it was released, so it's pretty clear at this point they aren't coming back. That's a shame...
Breakfast at Tiffany's, Napoleon Dynamite, Dumb and Dumber, The Wizard (1989).
