There are some movies that I will have to watch no matter how many times I've seen it or what time of night it's on.

Shawshank Redemption
Tombstone
Casino
Godfather

I'm not saying these are the very best of all time, but I can never look away...

Just a brief list... anyone else have any "must watch" flicks?

I agree with a lot of these, espcially Shawshank, Jaws, Pulp Fiction, Raiders, Breakfast Club. The funny (stupid?) thing is, I own all of those on DVD. And yet if I'm surfing through channels and come across one of them on TBS, I'll still sit and watch it to the end - commercials and all - even though I could easily pull out the disc and watch it uninterrupted and unedited.

Anthing Looney Tunes/Three Stooges/Tom and Jerry--at least between commercials depending on the short.

The Great Escape
Ferris Bueller's Day Off
Die Hard (1 and 3)
James Bond, especially the Ian Fleming stories
Shawshank Redemption
Gladiator
Band of Brothers

The Classics:
Cary Grant comedies and his suspense movies, especially North by Northwest
Errol Flynn's Captain Blood, Sea Hawk and Robin Hood
John Wayne
Audie Murphy movies, especially To Hell and Back
James Stewart (favorite line in Shenandoah is the prayer in which he claims they worked "dog bone hard", but thank you anyway God)
Gary Cooper, especially High Noon and Sergeant York

I can't think of any movie that I'd automatically stop to re-watch over, say, a live baseball or basketball game. Maybe halfway decent porn, I suppose.

Same here, and yet I never pull them out to watch. I only hope I come upon people who have never seen them that I think would enjoy them, so then I can play them for them, and I can get back the littlest taste of what it would be like to see them for the first time.

There are hundreds of movies I would watch parts of or again. It is more of how many times before I get filled. Young Frankenstein (I believe is the funniest movie of all time) is now "on the keep moving to the next station" for a year or so.

I notice myself watching Fargo and Kill Bill vol 1 and 2 if they are on.

Nah. I'm secure in my manhood. I also like Message in a Bottle and Clueless for movies and listen to Toto.

There are many that would be on my list if they actually came on all the time... like Almost Famous, for instance. But it's never on.

I keep Raising Arizona on my phone for when I'm bored. But actual ones that have caught me time and again:

Tin Cup
Die Hard
Casino Royale
Kill Bill

And the other day, it surprised me — That Thing You Do. Ha.

I don't think there's a movie I'd literally 'watch anytime it's on' since they tend to appear in clusters. But ones I will watch repeatedly when they come on network tv.

It's a Wonderful Life (once a year)
Breakfast Club
Goonies
Planes, Trains, & Automobilies (once a year)
Back to the Future
Bull Durham
Die Hard
Tombstone
True Romance
Reservoir Dogs
Pulp Fiction
Shawshank Redemption
Napoleon Dynamite
Memento
LOTR trilogy
Star Wars trilogy
The Dark Knight
Oldboy
Anchorman
Step Brothers
The Holiday (hard to admit but probably one your female partner won't hate)
