Not really a movie, but I have been binging Alrered Carbon on Netflix. Great show.

Though not really family friendly. Not unless your family is cool with Gane of Thrones style celebration of the female (and the occasional male) body unencumbered by clothing... and the red squishy stuff beneath the skin also being unencumbered by said skin lol

Just wrapped up in a futurist sci-fi dystopia vs medieval dystopia lol

Movies I can watch anytime: who framed roger rabbit, the untouchables, independence day, Reservoir Dogs, airplane, Up, the usual suspects, and pulp fiction.

If i was doing a binge, I would do every die hard movie, all the ghostbusters movies, the dark knight trilogy, the matrix trilogy, all the indiana jones movies, and back to the future trilogy, For TV, I would watch "better off ted," "Lost girl" or the simpsons

I doubt my children or grandchildren would agree with this list, but they've never had less than 100 TV channels or been to a drive-in.

Drama: In Harm's Way, Lost Weekend, The Man With the Golden Arm
Even more drama: The Enemy Below, Fail Safe, Special Bulletin, The Departed
Action: The French Connection, The Seven Ups, The Day After
Nostalgia: The Best Years of Our Lives, The Kennedys
Movies like The Godfather: The Godfather I, II and III, Goodfellas, Casino
Horror: The Thing (1951 version), Invaders From Mars (1953 version), Circus of Horrors, Freaks
Sci-Fi: Alien, Aliens, Blade Runner, The Martian, Looper, Contact
Sports: Slap Shot, The Fighter, Moneyball
Musicals: Singin' in the Rain, White Christmas
Comedy: Anything from the '30s or '40s where northerners try to do southern accents

Just added 380+ Doctor Who episodes going back to the unaired pilot episode thru the current season. Almost another 100GB of disk space used.

Yup, my mistake. That car chase from the driver's perspective through the hills of San Francisco was the closest thing to VR in the '60s.
The retake in the Sheryl Crow music video with Dale Earnhardt Jr was decent too.

Today's movie marathon will be Clint Eastwood westerns since I am in Texas and have 20hrs to kill. High Plains Drifter, Hang Em High, The Outlaw Josey Wales, Unforgiven, Pale Rider and if I'm still awake the Sergio Leone series.

Finally got to show my daughter Back To The Future, the original. She got a kick out of it.

@mgr22 I’m right there with you with the crime drama. Watching Casino now. It doesn’t quite go as well without Goodfellas.

Pesci was an animal. Role reversal? Raging Bull anyone?...

Been a long day so today will be a short marathon. Robert Duvall in Days of Thunder and Open Range.

I’d replace Days of Thunder with Falling Down. Just me though. Maybe even Colors.

I do enjoy me some Open Range. The final showdown, while perhaps anticlimactic to some, is my favorite part of the movie; solidified Costner’s characters badassery.

I agree, and to me it is one of the more authentic shootout scenes in a western. Unfortunately I don't have Colors or Falling Down ripped yet although I do own the DVD's.

The Last Starfighter.
Haha, classic. Flight of the Navigator is one of those for me. Also cheesy, but more of the Kung Fu variety is The Last Dragon. Sho-nuff...

You keep reminding me of movies I should have had on my list. The Caine Mutiny -- for sure. I'm pretty sure I worked for Captain Queeg.
