thriller or cop movie reccomendations.

i just got a blockbuster online trial and im only keeping it for a month. anyways i dont follow movies really at all so i have no idea what to get. what are some good thrillers or cop movies that have come out in the past few years. for thrillers i like movies about kidnappings, stalkers, murderers, heists, ect. not supernatural stuff.

I don't know what is about Denzel Washington, but he seems to play in a lot of this type of movie.

Inside Man
Deja Vu
Man on Fire
Out of Time

Insomnia-both versions are good, but the original Norwegian version is better.

Manhunter with William Petersen Pre-CSI.

Executive Decision: Excellent Pre-9/11 Hijack thriller with Kurt Rusell, Steven Seagal (in more or less a cameo), Halle Berry

Breakdown: Also with Kurt Russell

Copland. Very underrated movie that has great performances in it and a stellar cast. DeNiro, Keitel, Stallone, Liotta. Get the directors cut, it fleshes out the story a bit more.

I bet you would like The Vanishing.
Get the Criterion which is the original foreign version.
The US remake isn't as good.
