What Movies Suck You In Anytime They Are On?

Recommended Posts

So I just connected the TV in my living room up to my old computer and now I can stream movies from Netflix (yes, I could have done this previously through my Wii, but anyhow), and I came across The Lost Boys. i clicked on it and next thing I knew, I lost 45 minutes without even realizing it. There are other movies that this can happen, some guilty pleasures, some just pure fun. This used to happen more on TBS and TNT when they focus on movies more than TV repeats. I was just wondering what movies do you all flip to and find yourselves not able to turn the channel?

 

I would have to say these are 5 that just suck me in and are total guilty pleasures:

-Roadhouse

-Point Break

-Ferris Bueller's Day Off

-Tombstone

-The Lost Boys

Great topic. :D

I'm a sucker for the 80's action films. The ones that really keep me watching no matter what are films like Conan The Barbarian, and...

-any Rambo flick.

-any Rocky flick.

-Good Fellas

-Commando

-Terminator 1 & 2

-Indiana Jones (all of them)

-Heat (Al Pacino, Robert De Niro)

-Tango & Cash

 

 

The Godfather and Godfather II.

If these come on, I tend to turn of the cable and watch them on DVD. ;)

Point Break, Ferris Bueller and Lost Boys are all good ones...if they're on television or any of the movie channels I always seem to end up watching them.

 

Here's a few more:

 

- The Breakfast Club

- National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation

- Good Will Hunting

- Fight Club

- Any Kevin Smith film (ie Mallrats, Clerks, Dogma, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back)

- Star Wars or LOTR movies

- Billy Madison/Happy Gilmore

- Step Brothers/Talladega Nights

- Dazed and Confused

- American Pie movies
