well when i came to this forum, most of the topics were about recent or new movies...so i wanted to start a topic about old classics that are your favourites to this day.

mine are braveheart, the outsiders, slc punk, mallrats, stand by me and shawshank redemtion....considering my age these arent that old.

I love Braveheart and I recently watched The Labryinth and I really enjoyed that. I don't know whether they class as 'old classics' but they sure looked old to me /tongue.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":P" border="0" alt="tongue.gif" />

Would "Jaws" be classified as an 'old classic'? If so, then that's definately my favorite.

I saw the Outsiders in seventh grade; we watched it in conjunction with reading the book. As usual, I preferred the book much more than the movie.

I looooooove Gone with the Wind. I would watch it over and over again if it wasn't 3h 45 mins long.

I like the old "Beatles" movies like "Help" and "Hard Day's Night". I guess you couldn't really call them "classic"...or maybe you could...in my opinion they are.

I saw the Outsiders last year because of the book we had to read. What made it easpecially funny was having our teacher try and tell us everything we already knew. Then she yelled at us for laughing.

Then, we saw The Shining from 1980 and The Amityville Horror from 1979. Don't know if you would consider them old movies. I thought some parts could use some work, but that they were good movies.

Definitely The Outsiders and Braveheart are two of my favorites. Another one is Taps...very very old movie. Gone With The Wind, My Fair Lady also rank right up there. And of course, Risky Business with Tom Cruise..yep.

One of my favorite old movies is the Labyrinth. That was so Awesome! Also Grease. I think that one is pretty old.

I saw The Outsiders in seventh grade to correspond with our book reading -- I was not that crazy about it to tell the truth. It was alright, but I much prefer the book. The movie was rather ... boring x.x

Labyrinth and the Black Crystal... Oh man. I would watch those over and over.
Fail Safe is a really great movie. Its definetely old since its in black and white, but still very relevant today.
The Poltergeist and Omen series were really great horror flicks.

Watership Down /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" /> my all-time favorite movie. I've been watching it since I was 3, my earliest memory is sitting in front of the TV watching it while my mom is vacuuming or something. Amazing movie.

Also love X-men, I've got that movie practically memorized /biggrin.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" />

The only old movies I can remember seeing are "It's a Wonderful Life" and "Singin' in the Rain". Oh and "My Fair Lady." Man, I love that movie. Audrey Hepburn is the greatest.

I've always wanted to watch the classics like "Citizen Kane" and "Casablanca" and I've watched "Gone with the Wind" before but I don't remember it.

I would have to say Preachers Wife and Neverending story. When I see that it takes me back, and my imagination goes wild!!! It's fun!

So many favorites for me. Mostly historical, with war and all that goes with it, but a few that aren't. I LOVE Titanic (Ioan Gruffudd as an officer... hehe), Braveheart, Gladiator, Spiderman, Pretty in Pink, The Patriot, and First Knight (favorite movie at the age of four, and it's still good). My favorite movie with Lucille Ball is Yours, Mine and Ours; I am SO MAD that they're remaking it. I have so many favorites, it's not even funny. Those were just some that aren't fairly new.

Actually it was called Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory but for some odd reason they changed the name. I hate that they did that. I wished they could've kept the old title. And then there is Herbie. I didn't watch the movie for one main reason and one reason only. I don't like Linsday Lohan. I think she totally ruins every movie she's in. And the fact that it was an older movie revised made it worse. I'm not waisting my money on that.

Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory is awesome, as is Stand By Me. But apart from those two, I haven't really watched any old films..none of them appeal to me!

As I am the classic movies person I have to say I love Lawrence of Arabia and A passage to India, both directed by David Lean.
