Hear are some that I'd like to add that I find myself stopping a watching when I find them on TV:

The Magnificient Seven
West Side Story
Return Of The Living Dead
The Blues Brothers
Emperor Of The North
Pork Chop Hill
Patton
Battle Of The Bulge
Hey Scott, PATTON was the first film in this entire thread...  Lookingup
I have to agree with RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD, having sat thru the whole thing just the other night for the umpteenth time...

Oooppps. Your right and you have another good one that I like to watch when ever it's on THE THREE MUSKETEERS.

Because I already agree with a lot of/most of the choices here, I'll try to confine myself to ones I don't see listed --

It's a Wonderful Life -- I own it, but if I'm flipping channels, I'll still watch it at least up to the first block of commercials.

The Seventh Seal -- I just showed it to someone for their first time, and still found myself wrapped up in its exposition.

Fires on The Plain -- Again, something I own.  Not shown that often, but I take it down every now and then and still find it as riveting as the first time I saw it.

Slaughterhouse Five -- The film is definitely more involving than the somewhat spare Vonnegut novel that it's drawn from.

The Good The Bad and The Ugly -- Did nobody else mention this one?  Really?

Frankenstein -- The James Whale 1931 version.  Even after watching it my whole life, if you have this running on a hand-held minature DVD player, you can hypnotize me with it and steal my wallet on a crowded street.

Horror of Dracula -- Peter & Chris/Chris & Peter.  Lurid red colour.  Me like pretty colours . . . me must watch again, and again and . . .

Boogie Nights (1997)
The Silence Of The Lambs (1991)
Purple Rain (1984)
The Last Dragon (1985)
Outrageous Fortune (1987)
Poltergeist (1982)
Indiana Jones & The Temple Of Doom (1984)
Carrie (1976)
The Shining (1980)

I never get tired of watching those. I actually make it a point to watch Poltergeist at least once a year. Usually around July/August. Still one of the best summer-horror movies ever made in my humble opinion.

I always enjoy POLTERGEIST... I like TOBE HOOPER's movies... SILENCE OF THE LAMBS I've looked at many times... OUTRAGEOUS FORTUNE ??  Haven't seen that since it was new to VHS... really loved it back then!   Thumbup

I almost feel like I should surrender my testicles at the nearest Salvation Army donation bin for overlooking the greatest "guy" movie ever made.

Duck Soup!!  Duck Soup!!
Time was, this would pop up on late-night network or Sunday daytime TV all the time & yes, I'd always watch it.
Cable & satellite & the plethora of DVDs have killed some of life's little surprises . . .

IT'S A MAD, MAD, MAD, MAD WORLD

Anytime, anyplace!  BounceGiggle

And, naturally, just about any of the 30's-40's Universal horror films.

And the RKO 40's Val Lewton films (CAT PEOPLE, I WALKED WITH A ZOMBIE, THE BODY SNATCHER, CURSE OF THE CAT PEOPLE, etc.).

And any Ray Harryhausen film.

I need to look at that faithfully; I just watched part of it again just a few weeks ago, but haven't sat all the way thru it in... well, a long time.

Some of my favorite films are Universal Horrors, particularly BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN, SON OF, when they start to get hokey, I love them, but don't find them endlessly watchable...  Lookingup  CAT PEOPLE gets to me after awhile, I should add it to my WHO FREAKS YOU OUT? thread.  On the other hand, CURSE is a charmingly gentle ghost story, not quite sad, but haunting... I always look at that when it's on (TCM, frequently).

OK.  Hem.  This is tough.

1.  The Color Purple
2.  Schindler's List
3.  Baraka
4.  The Bad Seed
5.  Whatever Happened to Baby Jane
6.  The Sound of Music
7.  Short Bus
8.  Beaches
9.  The Long Ships
10.  Chitty-Chitty Bang-Bang

Bear in mind, these are NOT the ten best movies imho.  I just think they're then ten that I'd stop to watch and call the office and say I'd be two hours late, if it came on the telly.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
