Most of us have them, those movies we'll always watch, no matter how many times we've already seen them.

We love a good disaster. Even a bad disaster. So our must-see movies include:

Dante's Peak
Independence Day

Broken Arrow is also a must-see movie for us.

A new favorite is Unstoppable.

What's on your must-see movie list?

i'm on a jane austen kick

both versions of persuasion.
all 4 versions of sense and sensibility. i prefer emma thompson and the most recent BBC andrew davies 4 hour version that was quite true to the book.
colin firth's version of pride and prejudice. throw the kiera nightly version in the trash can.

~I'm a classic movie girl, preferably adventure/swashbucklers and musicals. The charm and magic of the old stuff is rarely found in our times. Just some of my favorites off the top of my head:
*The Quiet Man
*Arsenic and Old Lace
*Gone with the Wind
*Singing in the Rain
*Swing Time
*African Queen
*The Great Escape
*Stalag 17
*How to Steal a Million
*It's a Wonderful Life
*20 Thousand Leagues Under the Sea
*The Crimson Pirate
*The Sound of Music
~West Side Story
~Help(the Beatles)

And some modern stuff I feel has classic qualities:
~Lord of the Rings
~The Princess Bride
~Fried Green Tomatoes
~Monty Python and the Holy Grail
~Pirates of the Caribbean, Curse of the Black Pearl
~A&E's Pride and Prejudice

I am so not a disaster movie person. I have watched about 10 of them but only ever get so far as the first wave of panic before I can't take any more. When the water starts rising or the building is in flames I will not watch anymore.
I made it through the plane crash disaster in "Cast Away" only because it was in the first 20 minutes of the movie and I knew going into it that he would be alright or there would be no movie after the crash. :crackup:
I want my movies to make me happy and laugh, not make me anxious. ~
