    The Revenant is a 2015 masterpiece. Casino Royale is the best Bond movie in the last 50 years. Master and Commander best sailing movie. L.A. Confidential for 1997 maybe better than Chinatown. Usual Suspects a good runner up.

    The Searchers by John Ford with John Wayne is still an epic western.

    Babe - the film is genius.

    Anything that Buster Keaton did is brilliant. The General is a film that is timeless. It is daring, gorgeously filmed and solid in every way.

    Sometimes an old movie is worth watching because it just couldn't or wouldn't be done again without CGI, Like lawrence of Arabia, or perhaps some of the war movies, Catch 22 , even Apocalypse Now. Or Battle of Britain for the aircraft.
    In that vein, Zulu.

    Interesting story on the car chase in the French Connection under the El

    "The French Connection" car chase was as dangerous as it looked

    I think the car chase in Ronin is the equal of Bullit or the French Connection.

    What was that flick from back maybe in the sixties, where there's a long, humorous chase scene with a pair of Mini Coopers tearing around Rome, maybe, up and down some famous stone steps? Ring a bell?

    One of the best old movies I've seen recently was "The hustler". One of the worst, "Cat on a hot tin roof". Both starring Paul Newman.

    Thunder Road - Robert Mitchum. Ford vs Ferrari, maybe too recent! Steve McQueen in Le Mans and Papillon. Cool Hand Luke - Paul Newman.

    Cat on a Hot Tin Roof was, IIRC, a stage play adapted for the screen, and sometimes that fails. If you have time after watching The Hustler, catch the sequel with Newman as a much older, retired Fast Eddie Felson, and Tom Cruise as a reluctant protege. Jackie Gleason was stellar in the original, too.

    “The Train” with Burt Lancaster holds up well. “Mrs Miniver” also will always be worth watching.

    From my pandemic-related film noir binge:

    The Hitch-Hiker (1953) still creepy after 70 years. Directed by Ida Lupino. The bad guy was played by William Talman, who later became D.A. Hamilton Burger in the Perry Mason TV series. https://archive.org/details/Hitch_Hiker

    The Third Man (1949) Orson Welles and Joseph Cotten in a post-WW II thriller. https://archive.org/details/the-third-man-1949

    Psycho (1960) One of Hitchcock's greatest. https://archive.org/details/1960-psy...hitchcock-vose
