    I just watched once bitten. I really loved the movie, I thought it was very funny.
    I like when the 'bat' swings around, it looks like a very cheap effect, but is very funny.
    Where is a female vampire around, when one needs her ?

    Another vote for Princess Mononoke and The Incredibles.

    If you like satire, I think the 1979 movie Being There with Peter Sellers is one of the best movies ever. Not for the non-stop action movie crowd though...

    And The Princess Bride is definitely on my top five list.

    It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World
    The Apartment
    The Party
    The Great Race
    The Innocents
    American Graffiti
    That Thing You Do
    The Asphalt Jungle
    Rosemary's Baby
    Salesmen (1968)
    Grey Gardens (1975)

    City of Women
    Swept Away
    Howl's Moving Castle
    Eraser Head
    Mulholland Drive
    Inland Empire

    They make my list because I can watch them over and over and its always like seeing them for the first time. You could probably add another twenty to that list. I really need to check out "The Princess Bride", it has such a reputation.

    spot the baby boomer me thinks, do you still wear your flairs and tie-dye T- shirt when you watch them (I'm sixty three and I know for a fact most of your list was released before I even hit forty)

    Three enthusiastic thumbs up for that one. I also highly recommend Pulp Fiction. Both are on my "watch many times and always enjoy afresh" list.

    A theater not too far from where I live does "TNC." That stands for Tuesday Night Classics. They play older films for 5 dollars. As a loyalty member to the theater, I also have a tshirt and a cup that I buy once a year for a reasonable price (given the amount of times I visit the theater) that gets me a free medium popcorn and a refill on the cup for $1.50. So, during the year, I can see these "classics" on the big screen with snacks for $6.50. :-)

    A couple of weeks ago, they had Aliens playing and I have to say that it was a joy seeing that on the big screen and I have to say the experience is much better than seeing it on any fancy TV, no matter the size. My g/f and I also saw Jaws recently and Terminator 2. If your local theaters do anything like this and you haven't seen a certain favorite on the big screen, do it. It is an enjoyable experience.

    I had not seen Aliens in the theater since its theatrical release 30 years ago... I was 15.. Seeing it again was a thrill despite the countless times I had seen it on video.

    That is one of the cool things about VR. You have have a theater-like experience in the comfort (or discomfort) of your own home. However, until they get the weight down and resolution up, the real thing still wins. :-)
