And Jerimiah Johnson.
"I wish it need not have happened in my time," said Frodo.

"So do I," said Gandalf, "and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us."
- J. R. R. Tolkien

I despise Robert Redford's leftist ways, but it just so happens the he was the lead in two of my all-time favorite films; Jeremiah Johnson and The Natural.

I;m going to throw in the original Star Wars movie. It completely did away with models on strings as being acceptable sci fi.

Compare and contrast Buck Rogers in the 25th Century of the same vintage for effects, and you'll see why I pick it.

2001 A Space Odyssey in 1968 did pretty well on the space scenes. Don't remember anything looking like strings.

I recently watched a new(er) film titled The Shallows starring Blake Lively.

I won't reveal much about the movie here, save to say that I was pleasantly surprised.

I recommend it.

True, those were well done At least 2001 didn't make noises outside, much. It was ahead of its time in that regard, too. The Star Wars Movie had a lot more effects, and even better done. compared to most contemporary fare, it was in a whole new league,

Funny thing, though, the first space shootout I saw that used physics other than fighter aircraft maneuvers in atmosphere was in The Expanse, in this past season.

Ones I've not yet seen mentioned:

Megamind

How to Train Your Dragon

Commando (I like comedies)

Das Boot (the TV series, NOT the movie)

Dark Star

Alien and Aliens.

The Outlaw Joesy Wales

A Fistful of Dynamite

I Claudius (TV Series with Derek Jacobi)

Constantine

The Vampires of Havana (it's animated, very much not PG, and you will not stop laughing once. Find a dubbed version, not a subtitled one if your Spanish is bad)

Back to the Future

The first three Indiana Jones movies

Hancock (stupid but fun)

The China Syndrome (message is blah, acting superb)

Catch Me If You Can

The Lady in the Van

The Outlaw Josey Wales is right above Two Mules for Sister Sarah on my list.

I think Clint Eastwood is a great Director. The entire body of his work, over his long career, both acting and directing is without compare.

A surprising range, of his directing.

Even before that, when he was the lab guy in Revenge of the Creature From the Black Lagoon or singing in Paint Your Wagon, and then into Westerns (Birds gotta eat, same as worms.), to Dirty Harry (Feel lucky, Punk?), Play Misty for Me, Grand Torino, he has covered a lot of ground as an actor, too.

I wouldn't say he's got a lot of range as an actor. His characters tend to be very similar archetypes. What he does have is immense skill as an actor - Dirty Harry, the Man with No Name, and Walt Kowalski are the same TYPE, but different and unique individuals.

No, range wasn't his forte. A lot of his characters were similar. Paint Your Wagon was fun, Play Misty for Me was different.
