Great choices. These are fantastic
movies that are usually overlooked.
I also think Daniel's best performance was in Gangs of New York.
I think Starship Troopers is overlooked a lot because it comes off as a dumb sci-fi action movie (which it is in some ways) but Verhoeven did make subtle nods to the novel and the society that the Federation exists in. Its not heavy in anyways but if you're familiar with the novel, you'll notice some tiny details Verhoeven threw in the movie.
It was hard narrowing that list down though. There were so many movies that didn't make the cut.
Saving Private Ryan, Goodfellas, Rush, Aliens, Pacific Rim, Fury, Master and Commander, The Raid, Gladiator, The Original Kings of Comedy, National Lampoon's Animal House, The Fifth Element, Schindler's List, Dawn of the Dead (Zack Snyder Ver.), Public Enemies, The Rock, Jaws, Training Day, Sin City, Inglourious Basterds, The Kingdom, Let Me In.
