Favorite non-comedy movies

Anything X-Men or has Wolverine involved. I love magic movies. I love sports movies like "Hoosiers" I live for the underdog story. "Remember the Titans" is one of my favorite movies. At the end of the movie, when the quarterback blocked for the runner, I was in tears yelling "TEAMWORK!!!"

One thing I never get tired of is the film Burden of Dreams, which is the documentary by Les Blank about Werner Herzog trying to make a movie called Fitzcarraldo, which involves moving a steamship over a steep hill. That's the story they were dramatizing, and in an attempt to dramatize, Herzog wanted to actually move a steamship paddleboat over a hill, and he wanted to do it in the jungle the same way it was done in the script.

For those of you still reading I’d like to offer you some recommendations for some great movies you could watch with your free time. First, three films by a great director from back in the 30s and 40s named Frank Borzage. This guy was way ahead of his time. He had a sense of rare sense of human dialogue especially for the era and he picked terrific stories to tell. Three Comrades Flight Command (Amazing air combat sequences considering the time they were filmed) Strange Cargo (There does not exist a bad movie with Joan Crawford In it. She was a great judge of scripts and used her star ...
Too many to list. Just depends on what part of my life. When I was a kid it was war movies and westerns. Clint Eastwood. Was a big Lee Marvin fan. In the modern era, post-Goodfellas, I would say No Country For Old Men. I think that's a perfect movie and I was not confused by the ending. I think Javier Bardem's character was a ghost, he was chasing the past. "You never saw me..."
