Damn, I forgot Minority Report.
Douglas plays the same role more often that not. Married family man, who gets involved with a psycho woman (which makes no sense cos he's dog rough looking), yet in the end his wife always forgives him and takes him back or something - Disclosure, Fatal Attraction ect
I really like Indiana Jones a lot, but Harrison Ford only ever really played a 'different' type of character in the not so great What Lies Beneath, but even then his performance is just the same as any.
Top Gun makes no sense because the homoerotic tension is never resolved.
So Sleep Walk With Me is terrible and I hate everything and everyone.
Frantic was quite different for him (Ford). Mosquito Coast, off the top of my head, too. Both are good, give 'em a shot! He's also in, albeit in bit parts, both Apocalypse Now and The Conversation, if you need an excuse to watch two of the better movies ever made.
As for Douglas, beyond Falling Down the more recent Solitary Man and King of California are supposed to be good. There's also Traffic, The Game, Wallstreet. And I've always dug the comedy/adventure Romancing the Stone. Thing is, I think you're picking and choosing. I mean, when I think of Douglas I think of a the sort of suave and smarmy egotist he plays in a lot of films.
I really rather enjoyed Cloud Atlas, the transitions and characters take more concentration than most films require to follow and the connections are probably much harder to pick up on when watching the film. I kinda want to read the book now.
Last movie I saw was The Hobbit and I actually liked it better than the last two LOTR movies.
Just trying to find more films to download for the internet drought that awaits me and came across one I briefly heard of before called A Lonely Place to Die, starring Melissa George. I like her.
She does seem to keep getting sometimes, obscure horror roles though. This, Triangle, 30 Days of Night, The Amityville Horror and of course her 2 minute role on the superb yet mind fucking Mullholland Drive (it wasn't a horror but it was crazy...and sexy).
Triangle was really good.
I don't know what kind of flicks you're looking for, but I could rattle off a bunch from all eras and genres.
Gunga Din (1939), The Thief of Bagdad (1940), The Night of the Hunter (1955), The Taking of Pelham One Two Three (1974), Dog Day Afternoon (1975), The Warriors (1979), The Long Riders (1980), Southern Comfort (1981), Evil Dead II (1987), Intruder (1989), Prom Night III: The Last Kiss (1990), Falling Down (1993), Drawing Flies (1996), Harsh Times (2005), The Foot Fist Way (2006)
And probably a hundred more, but these are the ones off the top of my head without looking at my DVDs/Blurays.
