I went back all the way to the 20th page and didn't see anyone who started a thread about movies. If there is one, just let this thread sink away into the abyss of thread history, but if not, this is something we can talk about. We've got one for every sport, music, and TV shows. So I figured might as well.

As were talking about Tom Hanks, has anyone else seen "Bridge of Spies"? I thought that was one of his best performances for years. "Road to Perdition" is also massively underrated as well.

What are some movies you guys can watch anytime? For me,

Starship Troopers 

I love this film, everything about it is great. It's a big blockbuster b-film with some good satire that always makes it an enjoyable film. 

Do you guys believe the humans started the war, and that the bugs were simply defending themselves? I've always wondered about that.

Movies I can watch anytime (in no particular order, just as they pop into my head)

  • Cool Runnings
  • Jaws
  • Jaws 2 (unpopular opinion but I actually prefer jaws 2 to the original. I guess overall being more familiar with the characters helped)
  • Basically any of the James Bond movies including the new one No Time To Die which is very good but not quite at the elite level of bond films (From Russia With Love, Goldfinger, On Her Majesty's Secret Service, Casino Royale, Skyfall and Spectre are what I consider the elite level Bond films btw)
  • The Simpsons Movie
  • Shutter Island (CRIMINALLY UNDERRATED!)
  • The Gentleman 
  • In The Heat Of The Night
  • Crocodile Dundee 1 and 2
  • The Medicine Man
  • Assault On Precinct 13 (1976 version)
  • Unstoppable
  • Gone In Sixty Seconds

Some good picks there

Jaws is a classic, for a movie so old no ghost, whatever, movie scares me still till this day. I like Jaws 2 also, a little bit different but I mean it's still a classic that is also very terrifying.

One thing brilliant about Jaws, when the shark jumps the boat, **** man, no music, just utter terror. And then Jaws drags him into the water hauntingly after his screams and it's silent.

@flying_frontkick

Steven Spielberg may be known as a director of massive movies but it's those little details like that that got him that status in the first place.

@Stephen Terry

I prefer jaws 2 better as well.
 The original Assault on precinct 13 is great too.
