    Apocalypse Now, The Godfather trilogy, The Good The Bad The Ugly, Psycho, A Clockwork Orange, Life of Brian, Monyt Python and the Holy Grail, Bridge on the River Kwai, The Great Escape, Dambusters, The Great Escape, Full Metal Jacket, Stand By Me, Rain Man

    Have to say though, my real guilty pleasures are the old Hammer House of Horror films....

    I like watching the old Westerns, especially Randolph Scott. My all time favourite film is Casablanca. I don't know why I bother with a colour TV?

    In the interest of adding rather then mentioning all the ones I like from the list above:
    Uncle Buck (and anything with John Candy tbh )
    Labyrinth

    I have more but my mind is drawing a blank...

    I have all the laurel and hardy stuff they ate excellent!

    The older James bond films are much better than the newer ones.

    Not really an old movie though is it? :P Anything pre 1990's ideally.

    Some of the classic stuff is great, bridge over river kwai is another one that people mentioned, Ben Hur is another one I like and Citizen Kane

    True - just wanted to post it as thought it was a good movie, still a good 10 years old, obviously not as old as pre 1994 but ah well

    Whilst yes it is a good movie, I am talking old school stuff that still cracks a smile, a lot of the new films leave me feeling disappointed as they just dont have the story line like the old ones. I wouldn't mind seeing a remake of some of the old films - BFG would be a good remake, as would a lot of westerns

    erm? If it was good, why would it stop being good because it's old?

    And you're all missing "the cabinet of Dr caligari" ;-)

    Mine:

    The Breakfast Club
    Close Encounters of the Third Kind
    Ferris Buellers Day Off
    A Bridge Too Far
    Alien (stilll scares the pants off me!)


    It's stange though. Many 80's films I grew up with look so bad (and not to mention cheesy) now that they make me wince, and lots of modern films have sacrificed plot and dialog for special effects and 'action' that don't give me a buzz when leaving the cinema or prevent you from pauseing to make a coffee if watching on DVD.
