    Alright folks. What are the TOP 10 Movies you have the most fun watching. Where you can sort of put all your critiquing aside and just have a good time watching the movie.


    Mine would have to be in no particular order:

    1) Raiders - I always enjoy watching the indy movies
    2) Last crusade - i always enjoy watching the indy movies
    3) Star Wars 4-6 - I just enjoy these movies.
    4) True Lies - Its a fun flick, nice action and comedy
    5) Kill Bill - So far, I've had a very good time watching this movie.
    6) Jurassic Park - I'm 23, so I don't have a lot of knowledge of older films as I was young when they came out, but JP got me into movies and HT.
    7) Total Recall - I'm an awnuld fan
    8) Predator - I can always watch this movie
    9) BTTF(all of them) - Just fun movies overall
    10) Spider-man - I just enjoy this film

    In no particular order:

    Raiders of the Lost Ark

    National Lampoon's Animal House

    The Princess Bride

    The Matrix Reloaded

    Raising Arizona

    The Empire Strikes Back

    Aliens

    The Goonies

    Aladdin

    The Quick and the Dead
    (I know, I know, it's trash)

    There would be some easy additions to that list, but I haven't watched them enough to be sure. Any Pixar film, Kill Bill, Pirates of the Caribbean come to mind, but didn't meet my "criteria".

    Tough choices. I skew recent, I know.

    Take care,
    Chuck

    That's my favorite one! Though I admit mostly for nostalgic reasons. Jason & the Argonauts is a close second.
