7. "The Hunt for Red October" (John McTiernan, 1990)
The first episode in the saga of Jack Ryan is still the best, for my money, and always a reminder of one of my dad’s favorite flicks. I can’t tell you how many times we caught this on HBO or Cinemax, or certainly how often that old, battered VHS tape found its way into the VCR (remember those?). Sean Connery is actually the only star who pops up twice on this list, and that kind of makes sense, no? After all, in the realm of guy’s guys, he’s kind of high on the totem pole. Alec Baldwin was perfect for the role Harrison Ford would eventually define.
