Not much into movies...but...if you like history, there is a YouTube channel I watch called History Buffs. The narrator reviews movies and evaluates them on their historic accuracy. The guy's name is Nick Hodges and he speaks the Queens English but he is still easy to understand :cool:

@The_Doc_Man

Alita: Battle Angel
The Sixth Sense
Bicentennial Man
I've already watched above movies. I worship Robin Williams and almost have seen most of his movies. Above all I enjoyed Good Will Hunting, Good Morning, Vietnam, Mrs. Doubtfire & Insomnia

The following was added to my watch list.
Victor Victoria
Forbidden Planet
Arsenic and Old Lace
The Last Starfighter

Now that we're talking about old movies, have you watched A Raisin in the Sun? It's a 1961 movie (2 years before I was born), a powerful and excellent movie. I ranked it above 12 Angry Men.

In case of The Sixth Sense, I love unpredictable movies. If you like these kind of movies I suggest you the following:
The Others (2001) starring Nicole Kidman
The Machinist (2004) starring Christian Bale
Shutter Island (2010) starring Leonardo DiCaprio

If interested, I have a long list.

Million thanks for your suggestion.

I thought I have seen all Philip Seymour Hoffman movies. Apparently I have missed this one.
Added.

Now I need a Hug button in the list of Likes. But wait. We're in quarantine. No hugs allowed. What a pity.

Pan's Labyrinth (IMDb 8.2) - Please be aware that this is a very depressing movie.
On a much happier not, @The_Doc_Man reminded me of of Alita: Battle Angel. A movie I highly recommend. Also Leslie Nielsen, besides Airplane, appeared in a series of funny movies begging with "Naked Gun". The first one had a rating of IMDb 7.6.

For the maybe one or two baseball fans out there,
Moneyball 7.6 IMDb - How statistics shook up an organization and took them all the way to the series.

42 - 7.5 IMDb Based on the true story of Jackie Robinson. There's a scene in the movie where an opposing team manager is trying to rattle Robinson at the plate. I found it quite uncomfortable to watch and marveled how any actor (the manager) could bring themselves down to that level, even in the name of acting.

An addition to my list:

Driving Miss Daisy (7.4) Jessica Tandy, Morgan Freeman, Dan Aykroyd (1989) 99 min. - Daisy Werthan (Jessica Tandy) is an aging women who needs a helper to driver her places (because she is no longer a safe driver). Hoke Colburn (Morgan Freeman) takes on the job. Through several years of being together, their racial and ethnic differences become less important than their trust. I have trouble watching the end of this film only because it brings back my memories of my mother's final years. I cry during the last 20 minutes every time I see it.

Despite its special meaning for me, it is an incredibly beautiful film. Other people thought so too, because from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences it received awards ("Oscars") for Best Picture, Best Actress in a Leading Role (Jessica Tandy), Best Screenplay, and Best Makeup. It also received nominations for Best Actor in a Leading Role (Morgan Freeman), Best Actor in a Supporting Role (Dan Aykroyd), Best Costume Design, Best Art Direction, and Best Film Editing. Despite only getting a 7.4, this is a true masterpiece of the film maker's art.
