I'm on a rivalry movie kick. Watched The Duellists and Rush past couple nights. Looking for anything similar. Them being historical rivalries are a bonus, but not necessary, I'm just looking for any movies about two dudes who loving hate each other over an escalating grudge.

First thing I thought of was Sleuth. (I personally like both versions but YMMV) Also, the Favourite isn't dudes but it is certainly that type of film. Tangentially, Killing of a Sacred Deer is worth checking out if you're down with dark comedy.

The rivalry is constrained to a naval engagement that takes place over the course of months, but Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World has something of this, and is a fantastic movie otherwise.

Also, The Invisible Man from the same director.

I'm finding it hard to find decent movies on Netflix/Hulu/Prime lately. I'm looking for movies like Creep/Creep2, Would You Rather, The Collector series, Saw series (not for the gore, I just like the idea, but the later movies are really bad), Midsommar, Kristy, Killing Ground. I also like stuff like the Sinister trilogy and the Conjuring movies, but a lot of the movies I'm seeing are cheap rip offs and have descriptions like "A group of college students visit an abandoned asylum. They never expected this!!!" and just aren't worth watching.

Are there just too many lovely movies out there?

My dude, you been to the horror thread?

Your list it pretty broad for recommending movies 'like' them, unless you just mean any decent horror movies. Some decent-to-great movies people have generally liked over the past decade have been Hereditary, The Witch, It Follows, Get Out, The Lodge, Mandy, The Lighthouse, The Haunting of Hill House netflix series, The Ritual, The Babadook, Suspiria (2019). Most or all are on one of the streaming services you mentioned. Also, you need to get Shudder asap.

I've seen and liked most of those. I don't get why everyone likes Suspira and Hereditary. Hated them both.

I'm looking for movies like the ones I mentioned that aren't paranormal, but I do have room for good ones like the Sinister series and the Conjuring and Conjuring-adjacent movies. I also really enjoyed Resolution and The Endless.

I'm after post-90s films that try to be cool yet are somewhat grounded (dreamy/absurd from a grounded standpoint is fine, just not outright sci-fi - Fight Club would pass, but The Matrix would not). That's kinda subjective but hopefully the examples below get across what that means to me. Try-hard "cheesy" cool is fine. I find Payback to be incredibly cheesy, but for some reason it just works for me (despite Gibson's real-life antics souring the rest of his filmography for me). Also doesn't matter if it's an "obvious" one, below is all I can think of currently and I don't mind rewatches of stuff I've simply forgotten (besides anything else Tarantino that isn't on the list, I'm aware of all of them).

I'm not really au fait with foreign cinema, but any recommendations would be absolutely welcome (particularly anything French, German or Korean). Also, anything with cool women as the focus (Jackie Brown and The Long Kiss Goodnight are the outliers in my list below for this).

Stuff I can think of that I've seen and enjoyed (in order of preference):

Payback
Snatch
Jackie Brown
The Nice Guys
The American
The Big Lebowski
Pulp Fiction
The Ocean's Series
Leon
Drive
Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels

I'm sensing you're generally after crime films so: La Haine, A Prophet, Layer Cake, Grosse Pointe Blank. The King of New York, Fresh, Clockers, Ronin, Amores Perros.

First thing that comes to mind is doing more of a deep dive on certain directors related to what you listed:
Guy Ritchie - Sherlock Holmes, Man from UNCLE & The Gentlemen
Shane Black - Kiss Kiss Bang Bang
Coen Bros - No Country for Old Men, Burn After Reading, & True Grit
Steven Soderbergh - Haywire & Logan Lucky
Nicolas Winding Refn - Bronson
Martin Scorcese - The Departed, Shutter Island & Wolf of Wall Street
Edgar Wright - Hot Fuzz & Baby Driver
And some randoms - John Wick 1-3, Hanna, Sicario, Free Fire, Widows, Bad Times at the El Royale, Hustlers, & Debt Collectors

There are a bunch here I haven't seen! I've been struggling so much since many of the app algorithms just keep showing me the same stuff over and over.

Also thank you too! This had completely gone from my radar but also I think it's me who got the time framing wrong, because I had actually meant anything 1989 onwards (so I should have said post 1980s)

Death Hunt (1981) with Charles Bronson, Lee Marvin, Carl Weathers and a few other faces you'll recognize. It's a little cheesy/dated at times and very loosely based on a true story, but certainly worth watching.

I'll second UNRULY_HOUSEGUEST's recommendation of Layer Cake. Less fantastical/absurd than something like Snatch and more heist-feeling(?) like an Oceans movie, but less silly and way more 'We're so drat cool" almost to the point of parody in some scenes but it never quite gets there. Still a funny movie at times with enough clever moments and famous faces to keep you interested.
