    The stunt man film 'Hooper' just popped in my head and feel I should watch it again.

    I also recall that Cannonball Run was good but The Gumball Rally less so?

    Full Metal Jacket, Apocalypse Now, Breakfast Club, Trainspotting, Robocop, Friday, Blade, that kind of thing usually. Predictable and obvious, I know, but still good.

    Full Metal Jacket popped in my head a couple of weeks ago. To be honest I could watch a lot of Kubrick on a loop. Don't watch war films much/often but has been a long while since I have seen it.

    It isn't really old, or they aren't but I like to watch the Bourne films again and again.

    DaveCinzano WATCH OUT, GEORGE, HE'S GOT A SCREWDRIVER!

    Plenty of great films mentioned so far, but the ones I'll (almost) always watch if they are on would be:
    • Full Metal Jacket
    • Apocalypse Now
    • Breakfast Club
    • Ferris Bueller's Day Off
    • Kelly's Heroes
    I'd add to the list:
    • Seven Samurai
    • The Great Escape
    • The 39 Steps (Hitchcock version)
    • Rear Window
    • North By Northwest
    • His Girl Friday
    • Alien
    • Aliens
    • Shaun Of The Dead
    • Se7en
    • Bugsy Malone
    • The Man Who Would Be King
    • Raiders Of The Lost Ark
    Then there's films I rewatch probably far more than they really deserve:
    • Zero Dark Thirty
    • Black Hawk Down
    • Sicario
    • Carlos
