been on a 80s-90s streak!
A Fish Called Wanda, City Slickers, Unforgiven, Heat, Crocodile Dundee, Lethal Weapon(s), 48 Hrs, Escape from Alcatraz, True Lies, The Abyss
in between that, Coen Bros run, Blood Simple, Miller's Crossing, Fargo, Barton Fink, as well as a shitload of westerns, John Fords, John Waynes, Clint Eastwood. Western movies are such a great escapism. From John Wayne and John Ford I like The Searchers the most; while Eastwood's a tie between Unforgiven and Pale Rider.
I really love 90s movies simplicity. The landscape is different now with all the VFX opening pathways to unforeseen filmmaking but I think the large percentage of films are overwhelmed by it. Meaning the movies become VFX fest with cardboard characters and plot.
I dunno, but watching movies like classic Antonioni, as well as North by Northwest for example... there is a really strong relationship with the elements. When Cary Grant infiltrates the villa atop of Mt. Rushmore, the industrial architecture envelops him and there is a sense of chilling suspense as well as wonder. Like you're having an actual adventure. On the contrary, in say, Skyfall, which is actually a spy movie... the middle eastern sequence early in the film only gives us a sense of chaos. The camera never sit still and show the shadows... and then Bond spots the bad guy and after that it's just another chase scene.
