Movies you know by heart

    The Animal House thread got me thinking about this.

    In my younger years, I used to rewatch movies a lot. A LOT. Certain movies were essentially on a loop at my place, like background music. As a result, there are movies that I think I could, left alone in an empty room with a couple of legal pads, literally recreate the script for, shot by shot:

    * Animal House
    * Fletch
    * Pee Wee's Big Adventure
    * Midnight Run
    * Raising Arizona

    I'm going to claim I could transcribe any of those with, say, 90 percent accuracy. Do you have movies like that? If so, what are they?

    Napoleon Dynamite
    Gone With The Wind (probably not transcribe, but I can recite along with)

    I'm shocked that you've posted twice on this thread and Heathers wasn't on either post.

    Doc, you really could do Shawshank, a movie that long with that much voiceover? Impressive. I could be in the neighborhood on Caddyshack and Ferris Bueller, but not sure I could nail the exact scene-by-scene.

    Well, fuck me gently with a chainsaw.

    It's, by far, my favorite movie. I've seen it, conservatively, at least 100 times.
