told him I would start one for the above-named decades. I'm going to spitball
here, so I may get some out of sequence.

The Day the Earth Stood Still
Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid
They Shoot Horses Don't They?
Chinatown
Days of Heaven
Die Hard
Poltergeist
Superman, The Movie
Batman
E.T.
Going Places (French movie)
The Birdcage
Cat Ballou
Lillies of the Field
The Dirty Dozen
True Lies
Paint Your Wagon - Eastwood sings
Willie Wonka & the Chocolate Factory
Donovan's Reef

Just to get things rolling!

And I'll add
War Games
Pretty Woman

Fruitful period. If a limit is announced, I'll have to whittle away. But I consider my picks to be far better than the dreck that was nominated for Awards during this period.

Cool Hand Luke. Now there's a movie. One of my all time favs.

That's probably the best movie I've ever seen that was made before I was born. Not many on the list of movies made after I was born that top it.

Do Right, Be Right. :)

I love Paul Newman. And I think that was first movie of his I saw when I was a child.

I never even saw it until I was in my early 20s. My only experience with Paul Newman at that point was Slapshot, which felt really underground to me when I saw it at a friend's house on his old Betamax player.

Cool Hand Luke just spoke to me when I saw it. Especially at that age. I've never been keen on any type of authority, even today, but that movie was a big warning to me of what could happen if that constant desire to rebel was left unchecked. It's a lesson that I've been more successful at certain times than others at heeding. There's no doubt that I've made my own life a lot harder than it's needed to be by not just swimming with the tide, but at least I haven't ended up on a chain gang.... yet.

Do Right, Be Right. :)

I saw "Slapshot" too and it was funny. Can't remember what year it came out. It was VHS when I saw it.

Never been really rebellious but then I am not really a people person anyways. Just me.

But I thought it was a good movie at the time I originally saw it and could feel for Newman's character. Even at that young age I could see that being in jail was not a good place for anyone.

Growing up with The Sting, Cassidy & Sundance, Drowning Pool, Towering Inferno, it just seemed Slapshot was a sidestep.

I was just wondering why I don't see Lady In The Box (2001) listed, but then noticed the 6 years 2000-2005 are not covered.

"Slapshot" might have been. But everyone is entitled to a misstep.

Never saw the "Drowning Pool" or "Towering Inferno". Not into disaster movies.

I said sidestep. I did not consider it a misstep. Merely not the stereotypical role I had become accustomed to for him.

Drowning Pool was a mystery, as I recall. He played Detective Lew Harper. Wonderful cast, I recall Gail Strickland well, and I think the first role for teenage Melanie Griffith, in a crochet bikini. Sort of a Lolita role.
Newman also played the same character in Harper, which also had a wonderful cast.
