    Okay just got done watching a few cinema classics.

    1950's Rebel without a cause
    and Ashes and diamonds (polish film)
    1984 Once upon a time in america

    anyone got any recommendations for other films.

    I already plan to see dirty harry the whole series.
    And a few of sidney lumet's, sam peckinpah's old great films, if anyone has any other good picks that would be great, hopefully not any kurosawa films I am so not into that guy.

    Prince of Darkness is probably my favorite horror movie next to The Omen. I love classic horror movies :)

    Vanishing point I did see this movie, It's pretty good.

    after seeing once upon a time in america, the full 3 hour one man I couldn't believe how much I liked that movie.

    You know Rocky IV is the highest grossing sports film of all time???

    makes me laugh since the whole move is nothing but montages,
    and the the 3 mins where stallone gets pummeled by lundgren.

    My bad on the dbl post.

    I'll watch godfather some time this year, I never got the chance to watch it, same with scarface.

    I've seen every rocky movie. I still think the best ones are 1-3, 4 is also good but nothing but montages.

    Cast away was great I saw that when I was younger.
    Forrest Gump saw that and the Green Mile that is my GF favorite movie.
    and saw independence day a few times.

    I liked toy story 1 as well it was really like a huge success in the industry,
    I'm also a fan of Disney Films yes I still like disney, disney made some awesome stuff when most of us were growing up.

    ^Minority Report is Awesome, I know Tom Cruise isnt very well liked, but I think hes usually in great Films.
    Speaking of which, all 3 Mission Impossible's are really good.
