TNT has been running and re-running The Fellowship of the Ring all this weekend (in fact, I’m watching the fight in Balin’s Tomb right now) and I’ve watched chunks of each showing over the last three days, in spite of the fact I have it on DVD. Its that interesting to me. Also, SciFi is running The Last Crusade at the same time so I’m swapping back and forth. Which got me to thinking: If these movies were on at, say, 2am (and I happened to be up), I’d watch them regardless of the late time. So, what other movies hold this much interest to keep you watching even though its really late?

For me:

The Star Wars Trilogy

Raiders and The Last Crusade

The Lord of the Rings Trilogy (new addition)

The Matrix, the first one only

The Fifth Element


Babylon 5, any season 1 – 4 episode

Star Trek, original, some episodes

I’m sure there are more, these are the only ones I can think of. And most interesting, I own all of these on DVD (some B5 and ST:TOS DVDs), and I’d still watch them if they were on late…
