We all have them; the movies that no matter what's going on in our lives, the minute they come on TV, we stop everything to watch them.

We know every line, every intonation, every scene by heart.

We've stopped counting the number of times we've seen them because we lost track when we got past a hundred.

When the weather gets a bit dicey, like it's expected to this week, it's kind of fun to veg out a bit and put on one of your tried and true favorite movies.

This all started when JStew & I came across a recent study that said "Road House", starring Patrick Swayze and Sam Elliottis shown on basic cable more often than any other movie in America.

That got the two of us talking about our favorite movies of all time.

For me, it's a toss-up between Jim Henson's "Labyrinth" with David Bowie, "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" with Tim Curry, "Dirty Dancing" with Patrick Swayze, and "Shawshank Redemption." I've seen all of those movies, countless times. In fact, I'm pretty sure I used a line from Labyrinth as one of my Senior Quotes in High School!



JStew said for him it's "The Princess Bride" and "The Shining."

The Princess Bride

We asked you to weigh in on the matter, and you came up with some good ones!

One caller said it for him, it was a toss-up between "Star Wars" and "Jaws!"
