I’m actually really glad you left out Marvel and DC, as there were so many great mentions! Plus I now really want to watch Mad Max: Fury Road again, as it was just so entertaining. I do think a lot of my faves seem to straddle the action/adventure side of things though with the Indiana movies and Kingsman.
