Absolute Classic/Awesome/Cult Movies

Postby D3AKUs » January 23rd, 2018, 7:38 am

So working in a Cinema i was shocked that most of my younger colleagues dont know , what i consider , some of the most classic movies ever.
Talking to some i felt really old with my close to 33 years now hahaha ( and i know that i still havent watched a lot of good movies too )

So i gave them all homework to watch some good movies instead of the stuff like new "Jumanji" or "Baywatch" ... :lol:

So help me complete the List of absolute Classic Movies every younger person should have watched at least once and maybe help me to by adding some that i havent watched and need to in the process :D

Pulp Fiction
The Gonnies ( i was shocked when no one of the younger workers knew this one as its one of the best movies of my childhood memory )
Alien and Aliens
Predator 1-2
Escape from New York and maybe L.A ( even tho its way cheesier then the first and kinda sucks :lol: it still has super Bad A** Kurt Russel in it )
Big Trouble in Little China
Tango & Cash
Demolition Man
Terminator 1-2
Schindlers List
The Pianist
American Beauty
Waynes World
Ted and Bills excellent Adventure
Beverly Hills Cop Series ( except the last one, that one blows in my oppinion )
Grave of the Fireflies
They Live
The Thing
Die Hard 1-3
He Man - the one with Dolph Lundgren ( its absolute trash - but its a masterpiece in that category )
Evil Dead ( Original and/or Remake )
Army of Darkness
Gran Torino
Old Clint Eastwood Western Movies - no particular - mostly all of them are awesome
Literally Everything with Bud Spencer and Terence Hill for obvious reasons :D
Nightmare before Christmas
Pans Labyrinth
2001 a Space Odyssey
Clockwork Orange
Catch me if u can
Dawn of the Dead
Night of the living Dead
Lethal Weapon 1-2

Here's just a few that I think are outstanding. These are in no particular order as far as how good they are.

Apocalypse Now- Redux
American Graffiti
Star Wars- A New Hope- The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi
Dazed and Confused
The Graduate
National Lampoon's Animal House- Vacation and Christmas Vacation
Full Metal Jacket
I think most of John Wayne's movies were true American Classics
American Werewolf in London... if you like good special effects movies.
It's A Wonderful Life
The Shawshank Redemption
Reservoir Dogs
Taxi Driver
Monty Python and the Holy Grail
The Treasure of the Sierra Madre
Die Hard

These are just a few I could think of, off of the top of my head.... I'm sure there's many more.

There's a lot of really great movies listed here. One of my faves growing up, see if anyone knows it.

Jim Henson's "Labyrinth" w/ the late David Bowie and Jennifer Connelly (1986) - Great movie imo ;)
