The imitation of life (old and older versions)
Guess who's coming to dinner (old version)

Yes...without a doubt, the old movies are better! Maybe, I think so because I was there when they were 'new'...

Some of my favorites are:
'Old' Christmas movies: White Christmas, Holiday Inn, Christmas in Connecticut...etc.
Also, Affair to Remember, To Kill a Mockingbird, Shine on Harvest Moon....
All the Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers movies, as well as Gene Kelly's...
Lots and lots more 'oldies'....

I also like some of the more recent ones like: Reese Witherspoon's Legally Blonde and Down Home Alabama, & others along that line.

I DO NOT like Crime, Violance, Horror, War,etc movies...they are too real-to-life these days.

When I watch a movie, I want it to make me forget about the everyday stuff that's going on around us these days.

I noticed that several people put the Godfather down as their favorite movie. Funny, I love the book, which I read first, but never have cared for the movie. However I like to see almost anything that the guy that played *Fish* is in - Abe something - I don't remember.

I just saw Slumdog Millionaire...good film, although the beging was hard to watch, it was interesting, and deserving of all the awards it got.

That's right - I just read that he's called Abe "I'm not dead" Bigoda.

Actually my friend Ann and I have this running joke about the Godfather. She’s Italian and of course half the actors are Jewish so we’d see who could guess which they were the fastest. I’m sure we looked pretty goofy yelling “Jew!” or “Italian!” at the TV, but it was too funny.

I still like the book better.

The first one that came to mind was Indiscreet with Ingred Bergman & Cary Grant, it's a gem. Then it reminded me of all the the Ingred Bergman movies... Casablanca, Gaslight, Spellbound, Cactus flower. All wonderful. Murder on the Orient Express with a bevy of stars. In a different vein Paths of Glory, Clockwork Orange, both masterpieces.

Okay, now what movies does everyone hate? I know I'll get all kinds of things thrown at me for saying this, but I find the Star Wars movies to be boring.

I knew it was Vigoda, but my mind was slow to catch up....best old movie..."To kill a Mockingbird" (Gregory Peck), worst movie, never got into Star Wars.

That is SO strange - I was just thinking about that movie (okay in an odd way. I was thinking about Charles Starkweather (because we were talking about Nebraska last night which led me to think of famous people from there and I came up with Charles Starkweather) and then I was thinking of that movie where Tim Roth played Charles S and the girl that played his girlfriend and how she was in that movie the Craft and I couldn't think of her name ............!

Did anyone follow that? There will be a quiz at the end of this thread. LOL!

I love comedies. One of the funniest movies I have ever seen is one that many people have never heard of. It probably wasn't advertised much by the makers because they thought it would not be a big money maker. It was called Krippendorf's Tribe with Richard Dreyfuss. It was hysterical. I can watch it over and over.

As far as my favorite movie of all time, I guess that would be The Ten Commandments. I can't count the number of times I have seen it.

I love The Shawshank Redemption. I have watched it at least 10 times.

Another film I love and have watched it many times is Zandy's Bride with Liv Ullman and Gene Hackman. It is about a city spinster who places an ad to find a husband in the West and a mountain man who sends for her. He wants mainly a son to carry on his name. Love doesn't enter the picture for him. She wants roots, a husband, and family.

It's all about them coming to know each other and the ups and downs, and there were many.

I saw this movie many years ago (1990) and wanted to see it again a few years back. I couldn't find it anywhere. None of the Blockbusters had it and I couldn't find a place that sold it.

Finally I went on eBay and found a used VHS copy for $30 and bought it.

Just recently they have put the movie on DVD and have colorized it. Now it is shown on TV quite often.
