What films do you regard as Classics?

#1 by David Ollerearnshaw , Sat Nov 14, 2015 8:40 pm

Which films do you think are Classics? And I suppose which films that are classed as classics shouldn't be?

My first five in no order:

Goldfinger.
Jason and the Argonauts.
Dracula. (Lee)
White Heat.
King Kong.

I have a few more to add later.

Forgot my quote

"You see, in this world there's two kinds of people, my friend: Those with loaded guns and those who dig. You dig."


I still love the smell of film in the morning

I must confess, I do have a soft spot for "Wonderful Life" myself at this time of the year.
The first "Back To The Future" is also one of my favourites Jonathan...but then I have many like most people have I guess.

To list Classics in the cinema is quite a tall order, so I shall leave the mainstream and list a few of my personal likes, classics in
their own genre's. The Beyond, The Big Silence, The Mask of Satan,Castle of Blood, Blood On Satan's Claw, Witchfinder General,
The Ghost Breakers, Caligula, The Devils. Enter The Dragon, Get Carter, The Long Good Friday.
