Fargo calls to mind a movie that I should have included -- Blood Simple (1984).

lots of new releases in these picks!

Sad state of affairs. If it isn't a dequel, prequel, reboot, etc, people won't watch it I guess.

Oh Man Animal House! It blows away any type of remake, ie Old School, etc.

However, I did like Back to School

One of the old talkies I always liked was Glenngarry Glenross

Trying to add some off the radar

Last train to Busan

Thanks for the responses. I have been hoping to identify some outstanding lesser-known movies to check out. Here's two more movies that popped into my mind:

Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956)
Body Heat (1981)

Many great movies have been listed, but I have but 1 favorite movie:
Close Encounters of the Third Kind and Saving Private Ryan.

Oh, okay, I have 2 favorite films:
Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Saving Private Ryan, and The Exorcist.

Three, I have three favorite flicks:
Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Saving Private Ryan, The Exorcist, and Invaders from Mars.

This could go on forever, so I'll end with:

Roger the Shrubber - "Oh, what sad times are these when passing ruffians can say "Ni" at will to old ladies. There is a pestilence upon this land. Nothing is sacred. Even those who arrange and design shrubberies are under considerable economic stress at this period in history."

Falling Down (1992)

Don't know how I forgot: 1966's Carlo Ponti movie Blowup. A great plot and a time capsule for that decade.

I feel the most overlooked movie of all time is Slingblade. Powerful movie, great acting. Billy Bob is genius.

Many movies I like won't make many lists of all time greats.
Many I used to really like have aged poorly.

Shogun Assassin.
Lightning Swords of Death- This and the above are cut down from six Japanese movies centered on the same main character. The originals are a bit more harsh than the cut down for the US market versions, which mostly include the comically violent fight scenes with little background.

They Live
Pale Rider. (and most other Eastwood westerns)
Slapshot
The wraith
Predator 2 - Not as good a movie as the first, but it develops the predators so much more, their "rules" and morals etc.
A Sunday in Hell - cycling documentary about Paris Roubaix one year in the 70's.
Buckaroo Banzai
The Great Race
Magnificent Men and Their Flying Machines

Anyone who enjoys gambling/casino/sports betting movies should check out "The Runner" (1999), with John Goodman and Ron Eldard.

It's probably the best modern movie on those subjects ever made, but somehow it's stayed in complete obscurity

Any site that sees "Those Magnificent Men In Their Flying Machines" get two mentions in a Favorite Flicks thread is A-OK with me.
