Ford vs. Ferrari  I watched it on the plane back from OZ and would like to see it on a normal screen.  

Motherless Brooklyn  Good detective movie that I feel you need to see more then once.  

Any accurate history movie I always enjoy, such as The Darkest Hour

I’m due for a run through Godfather. 

2nd will be Usual Suspects, been at least a decade. Who is Keyser Soze? 

Finally, it’s almost Easter and I haven’t watched the Passion of the Christ since it was in theaters, so that will be my third pick.

Eddie Murphy. What a riot. I remember listening to an old cassette tape of Eddie Murphy Raw on my Walkman back in the day. Never laughed so hard.

I really enjoyed Ford vs Ferrari.  For me, it's a tie for best movie last year with The Joker.

Nice list

I might have to find the Raw video this weekend too.  ?

I'll probably have to whip out the Lord of the Rings Extended Editions at some point.  At roughly 11.5 hours it's probably the most bang I can get for my buck, unless I decide to start watching Bollywood films (which I very well might do if I get desperate).

need a laugh so classic comedies on tap:
Easy Money (most underrated comedy of all time in my opinion)
Revenge of the Nerds
but then after laughing so much I need some action so:  First Blood 

You will be shocked at some of those 80s comedies like Revenge of the Nerds and some of the stuff we found hilarious as kids but are big no nos now days.

Revenge of the Nerds, Porky's, etc... certainly a bit rapey by today's standards, but I think they're useful as historical documents.  Watching them sheds a bit of light on how much things have changed in a relatively short period of time... and if you're 'woke' enough you can have a nice ironic laugh at how primitive the humor is.

1. The Jerk - Absolute classic Steve Martin. Aged amazingly well. Between this and The Big Lebowski, the two greatest comedies of all-time.

2. The Godfather Trilogy. Yes, the trilogy you bunch of jerks. Even the third has a place. 

3. Full Metal Jacket. I'm way too young to have any first hand knowledge of the Vietnam War, but this is a heavy, heavy movie with more quotable lines than most.
