30 Days of Classics

Recommended Posts

Frank Brown

Starting off last night, I watched "The Untouchables" starring Kevin Costner, Robert De Niro, and Sean Connery. I'm looking to watch one classic movie a day for an entire month, anyone have any suggestions? Each one will be added to my list to watch. Make sure they're classics, though, I don't want to have Harry Potter or Twilight on my list!

 

If there's an * next to the title, it means that the movie has been watched during the 30 days.

I didn't get any suggestions, so I didn't continue. I think I might start it in a few days, though.

Alfred Hitchcock movies? Psycho, Vertigo and Rope are really great classics.

Highlander, with Sean Connery.

 

Reservoir Dogs. My favourite and pretty good movie.

Nice idea. Do you have any requirements or preferences for suggestions, or just movies we think are hella good classics? Because I could fill your list real hard.

 

Seven Samurai - Classic Kurosawa samurai film, it was the basis for the Magnificent Seven with Yul Brynner and Steve McQueen (which is also a good watch)

The Thing - John Carpenter-directed monster movie starring Kurt Russel shows that you don't need fancy CGI monster bullsh*t to pull off effective special effects. (Other John Carpenter movies to watch starring Russell: Big Trouble in Little China, Escape from New York)

Suspiria - My favorite horror movie ever. Period. Italian, psychedelic, and legitimately scary.

Blazing Saddles - Mel Brooks' hilarious vaudevillian comedy spoofing the western and lampooning racist dicks.

Ghostbusters - classic Bill Murray comedy about ghosts and defeating ancient Mesopotamian gods.

Death Wish - Charles Bronson goes on a vigilante rampage. The soundtrack by Herbie Hancock is worth buying it on its own.

Dirty Harry - Dirty Harry Callahan played by Clint Eastwood is the rough and tumble 'do anything to get the bad guy' cop in SF. The sequels are all worth watching as well (maybe except The Dead Pool)

Bullitt - another crime drama set in SF (seeing a trend?). Steve McQueen is just cool as f*ck, and has the best chase scene ever.

Vanishing Point - I love the Challenger, I love this movie.

The French Connection - Gene Hackman and Roy Scheider take on a nefarious drug smuggling scheme.

 

I'll add more as I go.

This is so weird. I was actually thinking of doing the same thing, however, starting at the very beginning.

 

I don't watch a lot of stuff out of my comfort zone anymore; kinda miss watching Atom Egoyan stuff or Chris Marker films in university. Would be great to throw a syllabus together.

 

Digging what Moon has mentioned so far.

Great suggestions, Moonshield!

 

Obviously I'm too young to have seen most older classics when they came out this is really hard for me because with few exceptions, I think "classic" is a pretty wide spread term, but I'm going to try and only include movies I still hear talked about frequently, one considered seminal viewing for decades

 

 

The White Ribbon
Once Upon a Time in America
Goonies
Life of Brian
Monty Python and the Holy Grail
A Clockwork Orange
Dr. Strangelove
E.T.
Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.
Good Will Hunting
O Brother, Where Art Thou?
Memento
(sorry for providing no descriptions)

Arg! God damned new ipad, runs like a dream but deletes everything you write when you switch tabs. I'm gonna punch.

 

Good suggestions, Rudy.

I like all of the suggestions, I removed E.T. since I've seen it before. I'm willing to go to 40 movies in 30 days, but that's the maximum. Keep 'em coming, fellas.

You might as well throw in all 3 of the 'Man with no name' movies: A Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More (my personal favorite), and The Good The Bad and The Ugly.

Lighten it up a little bit. Get all up in Ferris Buller's Day Off. The best feel-good film made yet.
