Sergeant York.

  1. I prefer stories about real people and real events.

  2. You have to go back about that far to see Hollywood portray the effects of a genuine Christian conversion positively and realistically.

  3. The conversations by poor country folks are realistic, and that's mighty rare. It feels like Hollywood either has no idea what country people are like, or wants to deliberately misrepresent them.

  4. The respect given to the principles on which our country was founded is prominent and unapologetic, even though York's resisting the government/draft is a big part of the plot.

  5. Gary Cooper kicks butt in the film.

My (then) nine-year-old son actually borrowed this from the library with his own library card, to watch it again because he liked it so much. I'd take Alvin York as a hero for my boys above most of the options out there. :-)

I think you're the first person I've ever encountered who knew this film. It was a family favorite for me growing up. I recently showed it to my children, and was delighted both by how much they enjoyed it and by how well it rewatched as an adult. You articulated well some of the things I have thought about the film. I also recommend Gunga Din, 1939. Yes it has some silliness in it, but it also shows good examples of bravery, loyalty, and true heroism. It was as good to rewatch in 2020 as it was growing up in the 90s. Watch it with your kids.

The Good, the bad, and the ugly.

IMO one of the best spaghetti westerns ever made.

Ghostbusters. Excellent writing and perfect cast at the perfect time. Even if they had taken a legit stab at rebooting it rather than just pissing and shitting all over it, it still would have been kinda shit because you can't really draw a better hand than Bill Murray, Dan Akroyd, and Rick Moranis in the early 80s.

The Big Lebowski, because of the memorable quotes and hilarious interaction between the characters. Vagina.

Bing Bong was the best supporting character in history. There, I said it.

Demolition Man. It’s a fun movie with great action and acting. The warning about the inevitability of socialism is the icing.

Dredd. It's not really my favorite but if someone hates it, I know we shouldn't talk about movies. Saves me time. :)

Sorcerer (1977) produced by William Friedkin and starring Roy Scheider.

Not least the Tangerine Dream soundtrack.

The bad guys all die, only Jackie survives.

Colossal with Anne Hathaway

It's not a good movie, but I relate to it more than I have to any others and I feel like it was part of the process of me improving as a person

The Boondock Saints. Vigilante justice at its finest. Absolutely solid soundtrack/score. Willem Dafoe being the eccentric badass as always. But Rocco stole the show.

It's dramatic, has a very interesting timeline and pace, it's well-directed. The director saw right through the Weinsteins in 1999 and pissed them off enough to get blacklisted from Hollywood.

And it's FUNNY! FUNNY! FUNNY!
