Apocalypse Now. Took my son who is 18 to see the newest version a few years back and he was really blown away. Unfortunately, it should be seen on the big screen. I liked your choices.

Has anyone mentioned The Quiet Man?
Yes.
My Mother's favourite movie.
Wholesome movie.
Another great Irish movie is Ryan's Daughter, where a local school teacher's wife has an affair with a British soldeir during the War of Independence. Robert Mitchum is the teacher. Some epic scenes in that movie.
