Obvious one: Spinal Tap

Underrated: The Sure Thing. The best of the 80s teens trying to get laid movies directed by Rob Reiner and elevated to be more. Jon Cusak’s first film, and Daphne Zuniga as the love interest. Fun small roles by Tim Robbins and Anthony Edwards.

Off the beaten path: Harold & Maude. I love this movie. Bud Court and Ruth Gordon. It’s bizarre and quirky, but there is a beautiful heart to it, and bonus is the soundtrack by Cat Stevens (when that’s who he was). Double bonus, early cameo as a cop by Tom Skerrit. “Possession of a stolen shovel!”

All great choices so far. I can only add....

The Magnificent Seven -- Yul Brynner's movie, but Steve McCool steals it.

Dante's Peak -- Very good Special FX for late 90's time period, plus it has Linda Hamilton going for it.

I just saw for the first time, a great 1960 movie The Gallant Hours with James Cagney as Adm Bull Halsey. Good Historical drama, directed by Robert Mongomery (Bewitched Dad).

Add any and all John Ford / John Wayne Collaborations to the list.

here are two I seldom hear anyone talking about  
santacruzom : 8/10/2019 12:37 pm : link
The Matador, with Greg Kinnear and a hilarious Pierce Brosnan.

"The Crawling Eye"  
M.S. : 8/10/2019 12:59 pm : link

Also known as "The Trollenberg Terror, starring Forrest Tucker (aka Sgt. Morgan O'Rourke of F Troop).

1958 B Horror film and probably the best of its genre. Scared the living shit out of me as a 7-year old.

Same here! The cloud is moving...
Here's a weird choice  
santacruzom : 8/10/2019 1:49 pm : link
The Pete's Dragon remake. I've seen that several times with my kids and always enjoy it. It's such an unusual kids' movie... understated and relatively quiet, surprising music choices, no clear cut villain to receive a comeuppance.

So: any Barbara Stanwick movie (esp Stella Dallas and Double Indemnity)

Bogart
Vivian Leigh (my favorite actress)
William Powell (the Thin Man series and My Man Godfrey)
All the Basil Rathbone “Sherlock Holmes”

That will get you started.

Yeah, that's definitely a movie that I'll continue watching for at least 15 minutes no matter what part I happen upon.
I also really dig Galaxy Quest  
santacruzom : 8/12/2019 1:48 pm : link
I'm not sure... does it get the due it deserves? I felt like it has some absolutely inspired moments. The hallway crushers satirized ridiculous plot devices better than anything else I've seen.
