  1. I develop a "connection" to certain movies which keeps me coming back, despite knowing how the movie turns out. A Good movie has the ability to make you emotionally attached to the characters involved in the story. Movies that do that for me include "The Graduate" and "Breakfast at Tiffany's"
  2. 70s Sitcoms were at their peak with classics like "The Jeffersons", "Alice", "Sanford and Son", and "What's Happening!" Dramas were at a peak too with shows like "Emergency!", "The Mod Squad", and "Chips". 90s would be 2nd
  3. If I were able to travel back to Old Hollywood, I'd love to meet as many famous people as I could. Some of the people I'd love to meet : - Louis B. Mayer -Grace Kelly - Cary Grant -James Stewart Who'd you like to meet?
  4. Marlon Brando was terrible in "The Godfather". Then again, I didn't like the movie as a whole I personally didn't care for Audrey Hepburn in "My Fair Lady"
  5. Looking at it Objectively, "Citizen Kane" is the best film ever made. Subjectively, I believe "The Graduate" is the best film ever made. There is no proper way to identify a film as the best, because everyone's opinion is different
  6. Beattle Bailey still holds up surprisingly well after all these years Scooby-Doo after all these years is still funny and entertaining Wacky-Races is as funny as it ever was Looney Tunes ain't as funny as I remember it being
  7. Film wise, I'd say Sinatra. Bing's movies were OK and Elvis made a bunch of crappy B-Grade films(sans Viva Las Vegas and Jailhouse Rock) Music wise I'm not a strong fan of any of them but I do prefer Bing out of the other two
  8. TCM does play Christmas films, but not the popular ones, due to rights issues. I have no issues with it because it gives me an opportunity to watch new Christmas films rather than the same old ones. If you don't like it, you can always just turn it off
  9. We all love Old Hollywood and with that, there are bound to be some unpopular opinions about Classic movies. Here are some of mine : - Spencer Tracy wasn't a great actor. I respect his work, but I never enjoyed him as an actor. -Humphrey Bogarts best movie was "The African Queen", not Casablanca. - Audrey Hepburn is a better actress than Katherine Hepburn. What are your unpopular opinions?
  10. The Birth of a Nation may be a Classic, but it is extremely outdated. I normally don't have any issues with outdated movies, but The Birth of a Nation takes things too far for my liking I can appreciate the significance but I'd rather not watch it ever
  11. Same. I try to remain open with all movies, but there's some genres/sub genre's that I don't like Biblical epics, Cheaply made horror movies, D-Grade Westerns of the 30s and 40s, and gangster movies are some examples of genres I don't like
  12. The 50s An Affair to Remember Rear Window Singin In the Rain The Bridge on the River Kwai Sunset Boulevard All About Eve Giant White Christmas From Here to Eternity The Searchers It Takes a Thief 12 Angry Men Harvey In a Lonely Place A Raisin in the Sun The African Queen The 50s were the best!
  13. I have to be in the right mood to watch certain movies. One day, I'll be in the mood for a romantic comedy so I'd put on "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" or "Breakfast at Tiffany's" Other days, I'd be in the mood for something like "From Here to Eternity" or " Sunset Boulevard". Some days, I just don't feel like watching classic movies so I do other stuff.
  14. 1950s : I Love Lucy Leave it to Beaver The Honeymooners 1960s: Peyton Place The F. B. I. That Girl Here's Lucy Gomer Pyle, U. S. M. C. The Phil Silvers Show Medical Center The Munsters The Jetsons Scooby Doo Route 66 1970s: Happy Days Emergency! Laverne and Shirley The Jeffersons All in the Family Dallas Sanford and Son 1980s: The Golden Girls Cheers Hill Street Blues 1990s: Frasier Seinfeld Mad About You Doug Hey Arnold Wings
  15. The Golden Age of Cinema lasted from the 20s to the early 60s. Each decade therein produced very good movies What decade of Classic Hollywood would you say is your least favorite? For me it'd likely be the 60s
  16. Breakfast at Tiffany's Sunset Boulevard Singin' In the Rain
  17. Movie stars have gone the way of the dinosaurs. They don't exist anymore
  18. 10 movies that I would save - Sleepless in Seattle - Singin In the Rain - The Graduate - Breakfast at Tiffany's - From Here to Eternity - The Treasure of the Sierra Madre - Chinatown - An Affair to Remember - Rear Window - Bikini Beach All personal favorites of mine
  19. I'd never recommend certain movies to young folk who have never watched an old movie (Movies such as Citizen Kane or The Birth of a Nation). With that said, here are some of the movies I'd personally recommend - The Graduate - Beach Blanket Bingo - The African Queen - From Here to Eternity - Guess Who's Coming to Dinner The idea is to try to get these younger people into classic movies. Chances are, they won't like B&W movies, so I chose some movies they might like.
  20. I agree with Yours , Mine , and ours still being good. I also like "With Six you get Eggroll"
  21. I love old movies. Some of them have aged worse than others. Here are some of the movies I think haven't aged well : 42nd Street - Many of the early Hollywood musicals feel extremely dated and boring. Rebel Without a Cause - Ain't as good as I remember it being. Dean's acting was a little over the top, especially with the line "YOUR'E TEARING ME APART!" Seven Brides for Seven Brothers- I believe this is self-explanatory
  22. Lawrence of Arabia- Too long and the plot of the story is very uninteresting. Psycho- Don't know why , but I dislike this film. I may be in the minority, but this was not one of Hitchcock's finer pictures. Any of the Spaghetti Westerns- Bad acting and cheaply made.
  23. My vote would be "The Philadelphia Story ". Romantic Comedy at it's finest
