“The greatest pleasure I know is to do a good action by stealth and have it found out by accident.” ― Charles Lamb
The Quiet Man. Big Night. Godfather 2. Gunfight at OK Corral. Town Without Pity. She Wore a Yellow Ribbon. The Long Riders. Streets of Fire. Magnificent Seven. Black Mama White Mama. Chained Heat.And so forth.
I can watch The Killers over and over again because it's so thoroughly professional from first frame to last. I'm referring to the 1964 version, based loosely, very loosely, on a Hemingway short story. The whole cast - Lee Marvin, Clu Gulager, Cassavetes, Angie Dickinson, Ronald Reagan - is perfect. Taut. That describes the film. Not a superfluous frame in it. Directed by Don Siegel. And Marvin's line at the end when Angie is pleading for her life, "Lady, I don't have the time," how can you top that?!
May I suggest No Country for Old Men. You can watch it 5 or 6 times, and there's always something new that you might not have seen the first time.
The Comancheros, El Dorado, Rio Bravo, Con Air, Die Hard With A Vengeance, Prisoner of Zenda (Colman version), They Died With Their Boots On, Longest Day, Guns Of NavaroneAnd on.
Get Smart (2008), Edge of Tomorrow, Notting Hill, You've Got Mail, The Proposal, Two Weeks Notice, Laws of Attraction, Music and LyricsNot over and over the whole thing, but just the best scenes. That's how I judge movies, the best scenes. Get Smart, continuity-wise, is a mess.
