One that hasn't been mentioned and that I hadn't seen since it's release years ago until relatively recently; The Fugitive.

Still holds up very well to be fair, good plot (crams an entire TV series worth of plot into a single movie) and solid performances all around.

Maximum Overdrive

The best Stephen King adaptation in my opinion, and the fact he disowned it even though he directed it himself shows what a shower of thundering idiots inhabit the film industry.

Walter Hill has made some action masterpieces, for car chase sequences its got to be The Driver from 1978 with Ryan O'Neal, some of the best wreckless driving stunts I've ever seen, I rate it even better than Bullet or The Italian Job (both versions.) No sub plots, no names, hardly any dialogue, just realistic frightening night shots of scary, scary driving. I recommend it for the opening chase sequence alone, totally adrenaline pumping and no CGI whatsoever.

Any mention of The Equalizer with Denzel Washington? Slow start but some great fight scenes in it.

If we're talking Denzel, Crimson Tide is his best film.

Gerard Butler should have been left kill everyone, then the film would have been great.

Jaime Foxx was a lil bitch.

Submarines! Him, Gene Hackman, Viggo Mortensen, Tony Soprano. I do love a submarine film though.
