I do too. I rarely watch a movie more than once so my choices are based on films that stood out and seemed more impressive than a lot of the mediocre garbage that comes out. Then again I enjoy crap movies too. They just need to be good or bad enough. The Room and Plan 9 from Outer Space are highly entertaining.

Old stunts, you should check Jack Reacher (Alan Ritchson) fights.
