I've been watching old classics with my 16 year old son. 

What should we watch? have you seen: Apocalypse Now, Saving Private Ryan, Shawshank, Animal House, etc... It's been fun.

Go back and watch the original Alien movie. You don't see an alien until the end of the movie vs now where the first 5 minutes overloads your senses.

Go back and watch the original Alien movie. You don't see an alien until the end of the movie vs now where the first 5 minutes overloads your senses. 

The Quiet Man - One of my absolute all-time favorites. Stalag 17 is great too.  I actually just watched the second half of Rooster Cogburn (sequel of sorts to True Grit), but if you want Great John Wayne movies you should start with The Quiet Man, and then move on to Angel and the Badman, Stagecoach, She Wore a Yellow Ribbon, Rio Grande, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, The Searchers, Red River, El Dorado, Rio Bravo, The Shootist, McLintock and Three Godfathers. He made many other fun/entertaining movies, but those are my favorites.

As for other classics, if you like Comedy then don't forget Cary Grant. Movies like Charade, Bringing Up Baby, Operation Petticoat, Father Goose ("Married??!! Goody Two Shoes and the Filthy Beast??!!"), Arsenic and Old Lace (which just may be the best comedy ever made), Monkey Business (with ginger Rogers and Marilyn Monroe), His Favorite Wife, His Girl Friday and The Philadelphia Story. BTW, many Hepburn fans may not agree, but I think Grant was a better on-screen pairing for her than Spencer Tracy.

If you haven't seen The Dirty Dozen recently, now is as good a time as any. Likewise for Leon: The Professional, which is one of my all time favorites with Natalie Portman doing an incredible turn in her first role at 12. Some Like it Hot is another candidate for best comedy ever made. To Kill a Mockingbird might be the best ever translation from book to film.

Oh, and Liquid, if he's going to see Saving Private Ryan and Shawshank, you really ought to throw Good Will Hunting and Dead Poets Society into the mix.

Grande Mastere Dreade's list is chock full of great movies as well. In fact there are only one or two on his list that I wouldn't have included(airplane for example, just not a fan). Some he mentions however deserve seconding that I haven't already mentioned. Notably Captain Blood (whihc should of course be followed by Robin Hood), Gunga Din, Seven Samurai, The Magnificent Seven, and one of my two favorite Steve McQueen movies, The Sand Pebbles (the other is The Great Escape).

Whatever you do though, do NOT watch either Citizen Kane or Star Trek: The Motion Picture (also referred to as Star Trek I). Citizen Kane, despite what most critics say, is frankly little more than a mediocre at best film school senior project. A whole lot of playing with technique and not much making a real movie. Boring. Pretentious. Crap. The single most overrated movie in cinema history, seriously.  Star Trek TMP on the other hand, may be the worst movie ever made, and that's even including Zardoz, which also should never be watched. They took one of the worst Star Trek episodes (bottom 5% at best), and turned it from 45 minutes of mediocrity into 3 hours of slow moving overly melodramatic crap that tried to be 2001, and couldn't come anywhere close to pulling it off. I warned my nephews not to watch it ever after showing them Wrath of Khan, and one of them did. He turned it off after 15 minutes and told me later he regretted watching that much.

For the record, Wrath of Khan is another great movie to watch again.

Seriously, we have been on a "pick a decade and we'll watch a movie" binge.  Kids pick.  Done 2 rounds. So far, for these decades, we have watched -

1940s - Maltese Falcon and Casablanca

1950s - Sunset Boulevard and Bridge on the River Kwai

1960s - The Graduate and Psycho

1970s - Breaking Away and The Taking of Pelham One Two Three

1980s - Raiders of the Lost Ark and Full Metal Jacket

1990s - Goodfellas and Forrest Gump

2000s - Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Spirited Away

2010s - Moonlight and Inception

2010s - Moonlight and Inception

Pretty good list but I'd make a couple of changes - 60's Lawrence of Arabia (single greatest movie ever made) for The Graduate and 70's The Friends of Eddie Coyle (best gangster movie ever made) for Breaking Away.

Oh, and I'd end the list at Y2K - movies have been shit since then.

Great selections, and am particularity impressed that The Taking of Pelham One Two Three made the list. I thought I as one of the few people who knew about that little gem.

If you revisit the 40's, might I suggest The Big Sleep and Key Largo, as other Bogart greats.

Sally Kellerman's shrieking rage after the shower scene was one of the best bits in any movie - great acting.

I've always wondered if that sort of thing would be very difficult or very easy for an actor to play. I figure something as extreme as that must be one or the other, not just routine work.

I was in college when it came out.  Some friends asked me if I wanted to go see it and I told them I had no interest in seeing a war movie. 

They came back laughing their asses off and told this totally irreverent girl I had to go with them because they were going to see it again.

Ben Davidson passing a joint during the football game.
Hawkeye saying, "We didn't steal the jeep.  It's right there."
Trapper: "I want that one there!  The sultry bitch with the fire in her eyes."
Hawkeye to Hot Lips, "Your problem is you're a real Army clown."
The scene on the helicopter pad where they are using it as a driving range.
And Frank getting taken away in a straight jacket.

I thought Robert Altman tapped my brain.  I loved every minute of it.

When I was 10 I was on a WW II sub at the dock in Bristol, England.

I never had any fantasy about being a submariner.

Das Boot: the best WITH the subtitles,  in my 20's and going to sea, had me on the edge of my seat - and I was bullet proof back then 

Oh yeah -- wasn't the original original like 6 hours long (broadcast on German TV)?

We watched Team America this weekend because we needed the funny.

"HANS BRIX?!"

I saw it in the theater, too -- 1982?  It was pretty riveting. Our local PBS station ran the full-length version of two nights many years ago, and I watched that, too.  Just as riveting.

Saw Pitch Black the other day. Radha Mitchell is pretty hot in this movie.

I was in college when it came out.  Some friends asked me if I wanted to go see it and I told them I had no interest in seeing a war movie. 

They came back laughing their asses off and told this totally irreverent girl I had to go with them because they were going to see it again.

Ben Davidson passing a joint during the football game.
Hawkeye saying, "We didn't steal the jeep.  It's right there."
Trapper: "I want that one there!  The sultry bitch with the fire in her eyes."
Hawkeye to Hot Lips, "Your problem is you're a real Army clown."
The scene on the helicopter pad where they are using it as a driving range.
And Frank getting taken away in a straight jacket.

I thought Robert Altman tapped my brain.  I loved every minute of it. 

I will occasionally use the "pro from Dover just needing a starting time" when going into the OR waiting for an add-on case

Great movie. Possibly Connery's best.

Ever since I first saw it I've referred to the doctor as the vet.:D

Pretty good list but I'd make a couple of changes - 60's Lawrence of Arabia (single greatest movie ever made) for The Graduate and 70's The Friends of Eddie Coyle (best gangster movie ever made) for Breaking Away.

Oh, and I'd end the list at Y2K - movies have been shit since then.

Great selections, and am particularity impressed that The Taking of Pelham One Two Three made the list. I thought I as one of the few people who knew about that little gem.

If you revisit the 40's, might I suggest The Big Sleep and Key Largo, as other Bogart greats.

We are going to do a second (maybe a third?) round.  Will see if I can put in a good word for your suggestions.

I've found two sites that list the quote as:

"Hot Lips:
Oh my God! They've shot him!

Colonel Blake:
Hot Lips, you incredible nincompoop! It's the end of the quarter."

So, you know what that means?  We both have to watch it again.  Win/Win!
