Literally have not seen half the movies on the list.

My list would have movies like Casablanca, The Quiet Man, The Thin Man and Slapshot. And lately the Marvel Universe movies.

Been meaning to watch Nobody's Fool for quite some time.

I think you'll like "Nobody's Fool." The Richard Russo novel it's based on is also very good.

I've seen all of the films you listed above with the exception of Slapshot. I have seen very few, if any, of the Marvel Universe films.

My list is dated. I need to catch up.

Cool Hand Luke
Devil's Brigade
Midway (the original)
In Harm's Way
Great Escape
The Longest Day
To Catch a Thief
All the Bourne movies except the last one - it was horrible...

A bit a theme in the middle there...

Good choices. I have only seen the first Bourne film and so need to catch up. I've never seen Devil's Brigade but have heard it is good.
