If you could, which film would you un-watch or which book would you un-read?
Submitted by Kate.

My first thought was Lady in the Water, as I'd love to forget that something like this even existed.  But then I realized that by "un-watching" or "un-reading" something, you'd be setting yourself up to watch/read it again.  So my only motivation for un-watching/un-reading something would be to reexperience the amazing/incredible emotions/thoughts I got out of the medium the first time around.  Here are some of my top choices that I'd want to watch/read again, for the first time:

Films:
1. The Usual Suspects
2. The Spanish Prisoner
3. The Shawshank Redemption
4. The Star Wars Trilogy (eps 4, 5, and 6)
5. 12 Angry Men (the original)
6. Fight Club
7. The Indiana Jones series
8. The Matrix
9. Memento
10. Sin City

Books:
1. Anything by Robert Heinlein
2. Neuromancer
3. Slaughterhouse-Five
4. Ender's Game
5. Moby Dick
6. Snow Crash
7. The Talisman
8. Watership Down
9. The Lord of the Rings series
10. Almost anything by Spider Robinson
