Thanks for the friend request! Anyone with Rocky as their profile picture is definitely a friend of mine haha Awesome list, I really appreciate your taste in movies. I noticed Escape From Alcatraz in your top 20. I own it on blu ray but haven't gotten around to seeing it yet. I just picked it up because I love Eastwood so much. I would assume you would recommend it? Do you have any favorite actors?

Feel free to comment on my board whenever you wanna chat!

Thanks for replying. I like the Coen's films too but I should see more Hitchcock films.

My favourite directors are Michael Haneke, Bela Tarr and Andrzej Zulawski.

No, I haven't checked out Alcatraz yet. I have it set aside in my stack to watch so it's all set to go. I've been working some long hours at work so I haven't been able to watch a movie every night. I hope to get to it soon!

Awesome to hear you enjoyed Field of Dreams! That's a movie I never get tired of, no matter how many times I watch it. I made a business trip to Iowa a few years ago and actually visited the farm the movie was shot at. It was surreal standing in the exact same spots that are in the movie. My dad and I even played catch at the same place Ray and John do at the end of the film. I had a blast haha

I see you recently added Matrix Reloaded. Was it your first time watching it or just adding it to Flickchart? Have you seen The Matrix Revolutions?

Sweet. I think I heard they are working on a 4th Matrix, I wonder how that will compare to the original three?

It's probably around 10 years since I've seen Matrix Revolutions. I remember not being too fond of it either. I thought it had some great moments, but they were buried by a lot of crap.

I see that you checked out Uncut Gems. Pretty stressful movie, huh? Do you like any other Adam Sandler movies?

Yep, Life Itself was a Robert Ebert documentary that was released seven or so years ago but I just finally got around to seeing it. I always loved Roger Ebert's reviews growing up and thought he had such an interesting perspectives on movies even if I didn't agree with him. I thought the documentary was interesting enough. Didn't love it as much as other documentaries like "Won't You Be My Neighbor" but it was still decent. A lot of the footage of him in the hospitial was very hard to watch though.

Looking at your list the highest recommened for me is Driving Miss Daisy. I need to see that one because I love Morgan Freeman!

Nice. I really like Point Break as well. A very quotable movie and I love the dynamic Swayze and Reeves had together.

Investigative movies are a really fun genre. I don't know if you've seen any of these but others I like are Catch Me If You Can, Prisoners, Knives Out, Zodiac, Patriots Day, The Firm, Se7en, Shutter Island, Memento, Donnie Darko, The Fugitive, Basic Instinct, The Nice Guys, Wind River, Vertigo, Rear Window, Chinatown, Insomnia and many more.

Cool, I think you would really like some action and sci fi. I'm more so of an action fan than I am sci fi. I love all the Star Wars movies, Back to the Future and such, but action is just more my thing.

Sweet, hope you enjoy Whiplash! I love the acting, editing and camera work in that movie. Plus, I used to be in a jazz band so it brings back many memories haha

Thanks for the recommendation. I will check that out!

Thanks for that. Hope things are good for you as well!

Thanks for the friend request!

Yea, It's a Wonderful Life is a Christmas movie, though I think it can be enjoyed at any time of the year. You should definitely check it out!

You also need to watch Star Wars and Indiana Jones!

I've been meaning to check out Goodfellas forever. After watching (and really enjoying) The Irishman, I've decided to gradually make my way through Scorcese's crime films, so I'll get their eventually.

As for Shawshank I can never decide whether I should wait and read the book first as I'm a big Stephen King fan.

I see that you have The Good, the Bad and the Ugly in your top 10. I love that movie to death. It used to be my no. 1 but has slipped down on my list as I've gotten older. Have you seen any other Sergio Leone movies? Are you a fan of Spaghetti westerns in general?

Nope, haven't seen Greyhound yet. It was one I was looking forward to for a few months now but I was really bummed it went to Apple TV or whatever it's called. I'm not going to get that service so I hope it gets released elsewhere at some point.

Looks like you've been checking out some great Hitchcock films.

And A Beautiful Mind is one of my favorites!

I finally watched Escape From Alcatraz the other night!

I love Hitchcock as well, he's one of my favorite directors. I have quite a few of his on blu ray. I'm hoping to get most of his work on that format.

I also appreciated the ending that they went with in A Beautiful Mind. The story of John Nash in real life was much more tragic and messed up so I'm glad the movie gave an optimistic ending. The first time I watched it was back when I was in high school in a psychology class. I remember all of us being completely shocked with the scene with the big reveal. One of the biggest twists in a movie that I can remember. I adore James Horner's score and love the entire cast. I remember having a big crush on Jennifer Connelly back in high school after seeing this movie for the first time haha

A couple others films I'm excited for is Tenet and Halloween KIlls. I'll wait five years if I have to, I need to see these on the big screen for the first time haha Nolan is my favorite director and the Halloween franchise is one of my favorite film series of all time.

Oh, and I loved Alcatraz! I've loved every other collaboration Siegel and Eastwood did and this was yet another. A really good movie and it had me on the edge of my seat a few different times. I would put this on my list of favorite Eastwood films for sure!

As a big fan of the movie Home Alone, it was cool seeing two Home Alone cast members in Escape From Alcatraz! Roberts Blossom was great as Doc and his last scene in the movie was heartbreaking. I always thought he was so tall based off of Home Alone but he looked so tiny in this movie. Maybe because he was standing next to a kid in Home Alone haha but Clint Eastwood is also huge so I guess anyone that is 6'1 still looks short.

It was fun seeing Larry Hankin in this as well. He's on some of my favorite tv shows like Seinfeld and Breaking Bad. It did make me wonder if he has any say in his character names. Here he was called "Charley Butts" and in Home Alone he is called "Larry Balzak". Both very cheeky names.

The Spaghetti western is an interesting genre. If you really enjoy the Leone movies I suggest you try some of the other prominent Italian westerns like A Bullet for the General, Day of Anger, Cemetery Without Crosses and pretty much any of Sergio Corbucci's movies.

Some of my favorite movies from the 30's are The Adventures of Robin Hood, City Lights, Stagecoach, The Wizard of Oz, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and the Universal monster movies (especially Frankenstein).

From the 40's I love It's a Wonderful Life of course but also Casablanca, Battleground, Sergeant York, She Wore a Yellow Ribbon, Bicycle Thieves, Henry V, Arsenic and Old Lace, Fantasia, and Meet Me in St. Louis.

The 50's is maybe my favorite decade for westerns with movies like The Searchers, High Noon, Shane, Rio Bravo and pretty much anything directed by Budd Boetticher or Anthony Mann. Some non-westerns I love from the 50's are Ben-Hur, I Confess, 12 Angry Men, Singin' in the Rain, Sleeping Beauty and Rear Window.

The 60's may be my favorite decade for movies as there's such an interesting mixture of old school Hollywood classics and more modern innovative stuff. My favorites include: The Longest Day, The Sound of Music, Mary Poppins, A Man for All Seasons, The Great Escape, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, Zulu, A Fistful of Dollars, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Magnificent Seven, The Agony and the Ecstasy, West Side Story, The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, and The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance.

Which movies from this era have you liked so far?

Hey, I see you've added some Chaplin films to your chart recently. Are you going to check out some of Buster Keaton's stuff? His best work probably isn't on the level of Chaplin's best, but it's still worth a look.

Aside from The Gold Rush and The Great Dictator, The Circus is another one that shows Chaplin in top form.

I actually haven't seen any film from 2020 yet. I was super busy early in the year and my state has since closed down theaters because of COVID. There have been some digital releases I am interested in but I tend to prioritize older classics. Do you have any recommendations?

Whiplash is pretty spectacular. I remember when I first watched it I liked it so much I wanted to go see it again the same day haha

I've really enjoyed Chaplin's work from what I've seen. Man, that guy had talent. City Lights is probably my favorite of his. I should really re-watch a lot of his stuff, it's been a few years.

Any movies of Chaplin that you especially like?

Haha that's awesome about dressing up as Chaplin, on the off chance that you did :) I just looked up Monsieur Verdoux and it looks really interesting!

Of the movies you've listed, I've seen The Great Escape, Saving Private Ryan, 1917 and Die Hard. I highly recommend all of them!

A couple I hope to watch for the first time soon are:

Ghost
Eyes Wide Shut
Clue
Inside Llewyn Davis
The Insider
Blue Hawaii
G.I Blues

What did you think of Pulp Fiction and The Green Mile?
