    Your Top 5 Epic Movies list ...

    This is not necessarily a top 5 favorite movies thread ….

    These movies are extra special … They must be watched in full at one sitting

    You put the kids to bed and even turn off your phone

    If this movie is playing on TV and you catch it part way through you REFUSE to watch it ..

    Watching these movies are an event not to be ruined by edits, overwatching or commercial breaks.

    This is your quiet time -- time to forget all your daily problems and be engrossed in a movie you love.

    My list (not in any order)

    -- It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World

    -- The Black Hole

    -- The Great Escape

    still thinking

    "Magnificent Seven"
    "The Great Escape"
    "Bullitt"
    "The French Connection"
    "Yojimbo"

    There are a few others that might rotate into my Top 5 depending on when you ask me. There's some kind of connections and similarities, to me, between all of the movies I find "Epic" (as you have defined the term here). With a very few exceptions, the ones I'd list would be (generally) made before I was born or when I couldn't have gone to the movies on my own.

    My list is a bit narrow in scope and potentially says a lot about my poor film taste

    A Few Good Men

    Star Trek (the new one with Chris Pine)

    The Fifth Element

    Predator

    Big Trouble in Little China

    Not exactly epic in a literal sense except to me lol.
    I almost had a psychic girlfriend but she dumped me before we met.

    If anyone here believes in psychokinesis, please raise my hand.

    ^ Goodfellas, Godfather and Casino used to be on my list but in the last 20-ish years they've been so overplay on TV I can hardly watch them now.

    I’m tired of Godfather. Was never a huge Casino fan. Sharon Stone is so annoying. The ending is awesome though, lol.

    Goodfellas I can watch over and over again...although Pulp Fiction is more fun.

    I will never get tired of ALIEN and Aliens. Seen them over 100 times each. I’m going to see them again this weekend, lol.

    I would have listed either of these except that I can watch them in chunks and not feel like I needed to see them from beginning to end.
