Have you seen these 10 classic films..?


Recommended Posts

1901 Was there a Douglas Fairbanks movie called The Pirate? If so, this must be it. I haven't seen it.

1903 Ernest Hemmingway and Marlon Brando make a buddy comedy! No, actually, I have no idea.

1908 is Gandhi. I've seen parts of this nearly four -hour movie, but not the whole thing.

1909 is Hocus Pocus. Yes.

1910 is Pearl Harbor. Ummm .... no (breaks down sobbing) okay, yes! Yes, I've seen it!

So, only two I'm sure I've seen and the most modern two. As usual, I'm having a hard time with the older movies.

The second 1,000 were a lot harder for me than the first.

1912 certainly appears to be a version of The Three Musketeers or some comedy variation thereof. Or maybe The Man in the Iron Mask. I probably haven't seen it, whatever it is.

1913 I was about to give up, then just as I started typing, I realized it was In Which We Serve. Yes.

1914 Is it Sister Kenny? I remember seeing this same photo over on the RKO thread. I've seen it, if it is.

1919 might be Trog. I haven't seen it.

1920 is The Wall or Pink Floyd: The Wall or maybe Pink Floyd's The Wall. I don't remember the exact title, but I've seen it.

Well, two I've definitely seen, maybe a few more.

Yes, you have most of these correct. 1912 is a comic version of the Musketeers story produced by 20th Century Fox.

1914 is SISTER KENNY.

TROG airs on TCM occasionally.

1922  I think you were trying to be a little devious with this one! I almost said The Maltese Falcon, but then I looked past the stars to notice they were on the water and realized it's actually Across the Pacific. I've seen it.

1923 I think it's Scarlet Street. Tiny chance it's Woman in the Window. I've seen both.

1927 It might be Tell Them Willie Boy is Here, which I've seen, but I'm not very confident in that guess. Plenty of Bronson movies I haven't seen.

1929 is The Killing Fields. No.

1930 is Waterworld. No.

Only two I'm absolutely sure I've seen.

All your guesses are correct! We have already done THE MALTESE FALCON, but I made sure the photo for 1922 involved water. :)

1934 I remember there was another Crosby-Fitzgerald pairing where they were doctors instead of priests, which I've seen, but I don't remember the name. But they may have worked together in other movies I haven't seen.

1940 is Weird Science. Although I was totally the target demographic at the time, somehow I never saw it.

I'm uncertain about all the rest. Possibly I haven't seen any of these. I'll have to wait and see.

You're right sewhite, it is the one where they are doctors. There was a third one, that had more of an Irish (blarney) theme.

I have to admit I did see WEIRD SCIENCE back in the day. I was on the cusp of adolescence in the mid-80s. 

I read a hilarious user review on the IMDb yesterday that sums up the movie best, and I am going to post a portion of it here since I think the writer, who obviously loves the film, gets what it is all about:

Weird Science has everything that an eighties comedy needs: A least one hot girl, a few actors who are no longer working or who do anything that will come along, plenty of dashing eighties threads, a corny as hell eighties soundtrack, (and Oingo Boingo is as corny and eighties as they get), and plenty of cheap funny jokes.

Undoubtedly the best thing about Weird Science is Bill Paxton, who plays Wyatt's older brother Chet. Chet is the worst big brother ever to grace a movie screen and is a role model for all big brothers everywhere, me included. Chet delights in extorting money and valuables from Wyatt in exchange for his silence about Wyatt's activities. The best part in the movie is when Chet gets turned into the toad thing or whatever it is. Man I love that part.

The rest of the cast does a good job of being their stock characters. Kelly LeBrock does a good job of being hot. Robert Downey Jr. shows none of the signs of future drug addiction. The film is unremarkable in the fact that it isn't anything groundbreaking or special. It's just a funny movie. And an eighties classic.

Yeah the underrated THE PIRATE for some reason was a box office failure & a fine film

reviewed *GANDHI when it first got a nation wide release in Jan of 1983  I made the error of thinking the best movie would win BP GOLD in E.T. but *GANDHI is the typical BP SWEEPER of the '80's
