I've got a few which, for me, are no-brainers. One of my favorite, and lesser known, films is Shakes the Clown. It follows the fall from grace of an alcoholic clown and his redemption while living in the town of Palookaville. (I'll be linking any movie titles here to an info page if you're curious of the plots rather than explaining each one.) Others that I must see again include: Blade Runner (Director's Cut), Blazing Saddles, It's A Wonderful Life, The Muppet Movie, Better Off Dead, Cars, and Into the Woods.
There are others I'm juggling and trying to make decisions on. But I don't want to miss anything. I want to try to enjoy the movies that I just loved one more time. Do you see where I'm going with this? I'd like your help. Now, I'm not looking for any new movies. Just movies I've already seen and want to see again. Unless you have an idea that really intrigues me or a film I'd always wanted to see but forgotten about. Help me out? What movie (available on Blu-Ray or DVD) have I forgotten? You can comment here, email me at email@example.com, or mail me your idea at:

I hope to see a lot of response to this. I'm very excited to discover what I've forgotten. Or, even better, discover the incredible bad taste in movies of which you are all capable. Make me proud people!
EDIT and RESPONSES:
Jaymi: Army of Darkness is a maybe. I don't know why. But it is. Love Princess Bride and Monty Python's Holy Grail but I'm still sick of Princess Bride from high school and I think Spam-A-Lot may have ruined the "Grail" for me. But Rocky Horror Picture Show, White Christmas, This is Spinal Tap and Young Frankenstein all have to go on the list.
Clint: Absolutely Rocky has to go on the list. Rambo (FIrst Blood Part II) however, will not. I actually like First Blood, but that doesn't make the list either.
Lilith: Wow. Ok. Garden State, Grosse Pointe Blank and Serendipity are great suggestions. The one I forgot that I'm incredibly glad you reminded me of was Big Trouble in Little China. Thank you.
For those of you who want a little extra laugh in your week, I'll be performing stand-up comedy this Sunday night here in Springfield.
I, and possibly Tim, will be performing stand-up "comedy" this Sunday night in Springfield. There is no cover charge. I've never played the venue and am not sure who will be sharing the stage with me. I can't guarantee they'll be funny. Heck, I don't even guarantee that I'll be funny.
