A week or so ago I was flipping channels, but not really planning to watch TV for very long, but I came onto "The Matrix," not quite at the beginning but pretty close, and I ended up watching it to the end, even though I've seen it many times. It's just one of those movies that draw me in and I can't not watch to the end no matter where I've dropped in.
It happened again the other day, this time with "Forrest Gump." It was 20 minutes to the end, but I had to watch it. Great movie.
So I got to thinking: what are the other movies that are so good that I have to watch if I happen to flip to them mid-way?
Here's my list, in no particular order:
1. Field of Dreams
2. Driving Miss Daisy
3. The Matrix
4. The Shawshank Redemption
5. Forrest Gump.
6. One Flew Over the Cukoo's Nest
8. Raider's of the Lost Ark
9. The Silence of the Lambs
10. Terminator 2: Judgment Day
11. A Few Good Men
13. The Little Mermaid (I know, I know, but I probably watched this a million times when Angela and Austin were little, and it sucks me in every time.)
14. Dead Poets Society
There's probably more, but fifteen is a good, round number to stop with.
