I've watched around 200 films the past 18 months. The 2 favourites that come to mind are the 2019 film 'The Boat', there wasn't any dialogue in this, just a man trying to survive in a boat that was being controlled by a hidden force.

The other film is 'A perfect world' from 1993 with Kevin Costner. In the early 90s there seemed to be a trend of making films set in the 50s and 60s. This was about a boy forming a friendship with his kidnapper on a road trip.
The reason why this film isn't well known is because it was released the same week as Mrs Doubtfire which took the shine off it

A Perfect World was a superb film.

Directed by Eastwood if I recall correctly.

He's fairly one-dimensional, but I always find Costner a compelling actor when he's properly cast.
I would agree. I think he is definitely under-rated due to his "steady" demeanour and someone who doesn't generally do showy acting. Dances With Wolves is fantastic.

Waterworld another Costner classic

Dances with Wolves is brilliant.  I also loved Costner in For the Love of the Game and Mr Brooks.

I liked Mr Brooks but it was fairly panned at the time. Demi Moore was shite though.
I wanna have my kicks before the whole shithouse goes up in flames.

Yellowstone is excellent.

I wouldn't go quite that far.

Interesting idea and premise about the real collision of cultures and opposing claims on these landscapes (not just in the American west), excellent cinematography and action, but the plots are so ridiculously over the top and unrealistic it could be a cartoon.

Field of Dreams is a superb film. Also loved 13 Days (has Bruce Greenwood, another actor I like), No Way Out, The Untouchables and even Oliver Stone's ludicrous JFK.

The less said about the likes of Robin Hood, the better, even if Alan Rickman is good fun in it. :)

It may have been ludicrous, but I'd read the book and the film just dotted the i's for me, whether any of it is close to the actual truth or not it made for good reading/film watching...Agreed on No way out, great plot and twist

That's a blast from the past - haven't watched it in years. Used to watch it all the time
