What Classic movies have you watched?

I’m wonder what classic movies have you guys watched? I have watched the original Planet of the Apes with Charles Heston. I have also watched 2001: A Space Oddesy (I’m afraid I can’t do that Dave"- did you know the voice of HAL was by a Canadian?) and it’s sequel 2010. I also seen Charles Heston’s Ben Hur. Also Dr. Zhivago. I’m going to rewatch Gone with the Wind at some point since I only seen it once on an aiplane. I have watched the original West Side Story. I also seen the movie My Fair Lady.

I have some others movies to watch once I can find my movie list again or rewrite it again. I think Solyvent Green It’s made of people! is on that list I believe.

Not a classic or at least I don’t think it is… is Heston’s The Omega Man movie. Based off the book called I am Legend. I think Will Smith or someone started in a more recent remake of it? I also watched another movie but I can’t remember the name of the movie at all…but about “The most Dangerous Game”. (1932…).

I’ve also seen the original Planet of the Apes; my grandfather let me borrow his VHS tapes when I was a kid. I’d really like to rewatch it, I’m not sure if he still has the tapes though.

What do you consider to be classics? Just a certain age, or popular films, etc? Honestly I’m struggling to come up with anything just because the type of movie I watch doesn’t usually fit lol. I’ve seen To Kill A Mockingbird for class. It’s not a classic, but based on a classic book, I’ve watched The Giver when I was in that phase.

I’m not sure what is a classic is to me. Most of the Classic movies I have watched are recommendations from my parents. I forgot to mention To Killing a Mockingbird in my OP but I watched that too. I think maybe a bit of both a popular film or a certain age (anything pre-1990s) so like E.T. and BTF could count maybe?

Here are some I can think of I’ve seen

Wizard of Oz
The Ten Commandments
Gone with the Wind
Rosemarys baby

Witness for the Prosecution, with Charles Laughton, Marlene Dietrich and Elsa Lanchester is absolutely perfect. There have been many remakes, but that version is the best.

I’m guessing autocarrot changed Prosecution to Protection!

This is a hard question to answer, because we all have a different definition of a classic movie. I asked google, and counted how many of google’s “most popular classic movies” I’ve seen. More than I expected!

A lot of them have been mentioned before, so I’ll just name a few other ones from the list:

  • One Flew Kver The Cuckoo’s Nest
  • Psycho
  • Pulp Fiction
  • The Godfather
  • Jaws
  • The Shawshank Redemption
  • The Shining
  • Schindler’s List

These are obviously sort of mainstream classics though. And it makes me feel old that they are classified as classics already :woman_facepalming:

I only happened to have watched The Shawshank Redemption the other summer pre-Covid due to the fact my older computer wasn’t cooperating with me.

Note: I do also count Jurassic park as a classic even though that was in the 1990s)

Whoops! Etided now…

Ooh I’ve always liked that one (Agatha Christie is the best!)

I seen Citizen Kane. I forgot to mention that earlier.

I lost my list of movies my parent(s) have recommended to me. But I know I crossed two of them off the list. Planet of the Apes and Ben Hur. I do know Mom has recommended to me “Meet Me In St.Louis” and also “Victor, Victoria”. I know when we were in Heidelberg*, Germany they kept going on&on&on about some movie called Prince of Heidelberg (Now, its called the Student Prince if they’re talking about the 54 movie but the movies is supposedly set in Heidelberg).

*I think it was either Heidelberg, Germany or another town that Mom got us “Lost” in…

I know on the list is Lawrence of Arabia

Lawrence of Arabia is great, saw that again about a year ago.

I wonder how well some of the gender-bending movies have aged. Victor, Victoria; Tootsie; Mrs Doubtfire might look a bit different in the light of our modern perspective on transgender. But maybe they are fine, I haven’t seen any of them in ages.

I did start watching like the opening credits of it but then I got simstracted (aca distracted with the Sims) with my SimLit.

My Dad recommended another movie… about a conquer today on our walk. I think it was called EL Sid (ok correction- El Cid)

I only heard of the later two reputations. But apparently Mom has seen Victor, Victoria movie which is why she recommended it to me. I guess an early gender-bending movie was “Some Like it Hot” I think Marilyn Monroe was in it?

Don’t forget Junior where Arnold gets pregnant.

I just realized I forgot the Jane Eyre 1940s(?) movie since the actor whom plays Samantha’s mother in Bewitched played Jane’s aunt in the movie.
