    Yeah, yeah, I know Braveheart or SPR is your favorite movie (or something like that). But you don't watch it because it's...well, it's special. So what movie do you actually end up watching more often than you would like to admit to? Out of all the movies you own, what inevitably ends up in the player?
    For me...it's The Quick and The Dead. I don't know why, but it does.
    Take care,
    Chuck

    I have a two year old, so the vast majority of the time it will be Toy Story or TS2 followed closely by A Bug's Life.

    If I'm showing off, Toy Story II or Super Speedway. If I'm watching, The Big Lebowski. Can't watch that one enough.

    Yeah, there are some Usual Suspects. Sometime's I know there's going to be Big Trouble in Little China if I don't pay attention to The Big Lebowski. Of course, the television would be Pitch Black if it weren't for Rushmore, which would be Out of Sight. In the past, such things have nudged me In the Mouth of Madness, to Zero Effect.
    (Those are my heavy plays. I'm surprised that my neighbors don't beat my door down when they hear the first musical selections from Big Lebowski and Rushmore.)

    He thought on homeland, the big timber, the air thin and chill all the year long. Tulip poplars so big through the trunk they put you in mind of locomotives set on end. He thought of getting home and building him a cabin on Cold Mountain so high that not a soul but the nighthawks passing across the clouds in autumn could hear his sad cry. Of living a life so quiet he would not need ears. And if Ada would go with him, there might be the hope, so far off in the distance he did not even really see it, that in time his despair might be honed off to a point so fine and thin that it would be nearly the same as vanishing.

    Right now, it's Waiting For Guffman straight to Eugene Levy's audition scene.
    Damn, now that I've written that, I'm going to put it on again. Damn you HTF! [​IMG]

    Toy Story I and II always end up in my player as a test disc or just to watch. Also, Titanic is my test disc for non-anamorphic scaling.

    Toy Story 1 and 2. My toddler walks around the house saying "Buzz, Buzz, Buzz, Buzz....". He can't get enough.
    As for me, I throw in the Matrix the most. It usually starts out as a quick demo and then the next thing I know I'm watching till the end.

    Technically, (trying not to sound like bragging or pretentious, just being literal) my entire collection is in my player, but the one or three that are actually played the most are:
    gladiator
    crouching tiger...
    aliens

    I used to watch ALIENS all the time
    but now when I'm alone it's Embrace of the Vampire
    when I'm showing the system off it's usually The Patriot.
    an when I need a nap it's anything starring Tom Cruise.

    For me, it's almost always something new. I don't get around to repeat viewings enough.

    Its two movies lately. Antitrust usually makes me sleepy and I tend to sleep alot [​IMG]
    But then there's Goonies. Can't seem to get the Cyndy Lauper song out of my head. Plus I can't get enough of Anne Ramsey and Mr. Davi. Totally hillarious.
