Watch, Rinse, and Repeat
There are those movies that we all love so dearly that we inevitably are compelled by some unknown force that uncontrollably makes us watch them over and over. Some are from our childhoods. Some we watch after having our hearts broken for the umpteenth time. Others just awaken us with awe and wonder at what might be. These movies we watch again and again to remind of us what we were and dreams yet to be fulfilled. What is the movie you re-watch that makes you forget about your own troubles in life, and brings back that feeling you had in an earlier time, and re-freshens your soul? After voting, please discuss here. The titles in this list are loosely based off of this article, Top 50 Most-Watched Movies of All Time.
The movies that are as good as the original books?
We all know some great movies are made from the books (or stories), but do we know are they so great in terms of the sources from which they were adapted? So, vote here for the movie that you think translated the best the intentions of the author of the original work. I chose book adaptations that have IMDB rating higher than 8, but you are free to suggest new movies that you think were as great as the books themselves. Discuss the list and add your suggestions here! P.S. The poll is sorted in alphabetical order, so not to make any movie "better" than the other. This would be simply your opinion on what do you think was really well adapted book or story.

Quotable Fantasy Classics
Most fantasy films are remembered for the splendor of their special effects, their heart-pounding action sequences, the enchantment they provide for children from 6 to 60 or the durability of a saga that made the audience grow with the characters. These standalone fantasy classics are as enduring as any "franchise" (trilogies and beyond) but it's fair to say that what makes them so memorable is how damn quotable they are. Which of these fantasy classics would you say is the most quotable? After voting, you might discuss the list here (trilogies or franchises aren't included because they're not quotable but because it would be either unfair to put them in the same balance of judgment with stories that have only "one" cinematic offering or difficult to pick which opus of the saga is the most quotable to be considered the right representative)
