    What are your "Stop and Drop" movies?

    When I was chewing the fat with Doc Strange on Monday I asked him "what movies make you stop and drop"? "Stop and drop" is a term I made up for films that, if they're on when you pass the tube, are so compelling that you stop going where you're supposed to be going and drop whatever it is you're started doing. How many times have you gotten your coat on to go somewhere only to find yourself an hour later with your car keys in your hands and your husband, wife or kids screaming at you to "c'mon already"! My partial list is as follows:

    "Godfather I"
    "The Thing From Another World"
    "Red River"
    "Fort Apache"
    "They Were Expendable"
    "It's a Wonderful Life"
    "Conan The Barbarian"
    "Independence Day"
    "Starship Troopers"
    "Aliens" (best "rear guard" action ever filmed)
    "Band of Brothers"
    "The Pacific"
    "The Wire"
    "Game of Thrones"
