Hey Pandas, What’s A Classic Movie That Everyone Needs To See At Least Once In Their Life? (Closed)
What movies are considered classics? Which ones do you watch over and over?
Back to the Future
Made in 1986 - would be all CGI now... to make it in 86 and still have it be brilliant in 2021 is an astounding feat.
The Breakfast Club
The Wizard of Oz
The Fifth Element
It's a Wonderful Life.
Raiders of the Lost Ark
The Sound of Music - its a scary film, and so sad, so glad the family got out of Austria safely.
One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest. Maybe Jack Nicholson’s best performance. Harsh & superb.
Arsenic and Old Lace
Cary Grant did the best double take in the business
Dances With Wolves
Stand by Me
Dr. Strangelove or: how I learned to stop worrying and love the bomb
Galaxy Quest. the best send up of all- a great spoof of the Star Trek
The Good, The Bad & The Ugly.
The Green Mile
My Fair Lady
2001: Space Odyssey. It's like a manual of where humanity came from and where it's heading.
The Harry Potter franchise. My favorite series ever (books and movies). Watching them for the fourth time.
The Color Purple
The Blues Brothers. Hilarious mock epic with great music & a car chase in a mall!
Breakfast at Tiffany's
Rocky Horror Picture Show. Every Halloween. It's just so bad it's good. Always cringe laugh.
Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolf
The Maltese Falcon
All This and Heaven Too
Watch On The Rhine
Adventures of Robin Hood
If I could only watch one, before I died, it would be Casablanca.
Laurence of Arabia
Starring Jimmy Stewart
Good Will Hunting
batteries not included.
Murder by Death
Clue before Clue. Awesome cast Alec Guiness pre-Star Wars, Maggie Smith + more.
Eternal Sunshine For The Spotless Mind. Brilliant and very unique.
The Crow - RIP Brandon Lee.
Blood Diamond (2006). My geology teacher in high school actually had us watch it in class. It's a fairly accurate description of the dark side of the diamond industry.
Arsenic and Old Lace. One of the funniest movies I've ever seen.
The African Queen
Jaws. It changed people’s beach habits for years. If I happen across it on TV, I have to stop & watch it whatever point the movie is in every time.
Field of Dreams
All that Jazz. The intro alone is a masterclass in story telling and editing.
Children of Men
12 Angry Men
Casablanca, Harold & Maude, The Producers (1967), The Taking of Pelham 123 (1974), The Third Man. These are some of the greatest classic films ever made, the originals, not the remakes.
North by Northwest
A Summer Place
Murder on the Orient Express
Valley of the Dolls
Gone with the Wind
The World According to Garp
The Killing Fields
Tom Hanks is a brillant actor and Clint Eastwood did a great job as director
The fisher king (1991, by Terry Gilliam)
to learn that every word of you has an effect
Whatever happened to Baby Jane(1962)- I'm so old this was the first movie I ordered from Netflix in the mail
The Music Man with Robert Preston. The characters are loads of fun, and I've never seen a more powerful and commanding leading man. Just be ready to look past the antiquated ideas of courtship.
Army of Darkness
the original Gojira.
while most Godzilla films are quite goofy, this one is more of a horror/drama.
being there- Peter Sellers
Guess who’s coming to dinner. Kathryn Hepburn and Spencer Tracy are gold and the story stands the test of time.
On Golden Pond too!
Forrest Gump ("Lieutenant Dan...!")
I watched it as a child and it forever changed how I saw love.
The Breakfast Club
To Sir with Love
Blazing Saddles - Mel Brooks was “Woke” before it was a thing. This movie has a unique style of comedy as it makes fun of the stereotypical racist. It’s intelligent yet childish jokes will keep your attention from beginning to end
The Mummy, with Brendan Frazer, Rachel Weisz, John Hannah, Oded Fehr and Arnold Vosloo. Infinitely enjoyable. Witty and the coolest special effects.
