This is the forum to get to know your fellow pilots and the ONLY place to talk about everything else not really relevant to sci-fi movies, including your personal loves and interests. A true pilot doesn't discuss these issues while on duty.

Re: great movies to watch when you are bored

Well pretty much anything. However, they gotta be atleast 3.5+ years old and gotta have been pretty famous movies. If I watch a movie that doesn't fit under those criterias, then I'll be watching a comedy or a foreign film or a SF.

original Jurassic Park NEVER get's old. Summer is only half way over and i have watched it over 35 times. (i know all the dialoge by heart)
se7en
fight club
vanilla sky
THE MATRIX (i think i may be wearing out my dvd)
o brother where art thou?

these arn't good for bordom in my experience for any other reason than i can watch them over, and over, and over, and not get tired of them. (i have dvd's i have watched once, and now they collect dust)
