Forgotten Masterpiece in Cinema, For Buffs Only.

Aint never going to pay $10 for the hollywood junk they make today, unless it's for the friends/ family atmosphere.. because there are so many amazing films that no one cares to see..

What movies do you recommend or wantin to see? The older the more classical the better.

Here is my top 10 Forgetten Masterpieces:

America, America - Elia Kazan
The Circus - Charles Chaplin
Wrong Man - Hitchcock
Winter Light - Ingmar Bergman
King of Comedy - Martin Scorsese
Koyaanisqatsi - G.Reggie
This Boy's Life - DeNiro, Dicaprio
Chinese Coffee - Al Pacino
Gummo - Harmony Korine
Bottle Rocket - Wes Anderson

I just saw a classic movie called Indochine with Catherine Denevue <---sp? I really loved it though husband not so much. Subtitled

Oh yes at THe Sting was superb

I'm also looooving The Greatest Story Ever Told And classic biblical epic films or things like Spartacus. I'm just discovering them. Omg-- so amazing

Gone With the Wind.. Wow!

But as cliche as it may seem The Godfather is probably the best movie EVER. I never tire of it. There is another with Richard Dreyfus called Lansky. Awesome!

Oh yes and Neil Simon movies... Biloxi Blues is great as is Brighton Beach Memoirs.

I like garbage films.

John Dies at the End -- no clue wtf was going on here
Thankskilling -- evil turkey that wears peoples' faces after it kills them
Nazis at the Center of the Earth -- there is a robot hitler
Iron Sky -- there are Nazis on the moon, epic

North by Northwest and Rear Window come to mind, though they aren't too forgotten.

The original version of The Day the Earth Stood Still is great, I remember watching that with my dad as a lil feller.

Ok, well I like good movies too, so my list of "must watch" is:
The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966)
Seven Samurai (1954)
Once Upon a Time in the West (1968)
Once Upon a Time in America (1984)
Psycho (1960)
North by Northwest (1959)
Citizen Kane (1941)
A Clockwork Orange (1971)
Lawrence of Arabia (1962)
The Great Escape (1963)
The Deer Hunter (1978)
Ben-Hur (1959)
The Manchurian Candidate (1962)
A Fistful of Dollars (1964)
Goldfinger (1964)
From Russia with Love (1963)
Dr. No (1962)
A Bridge Too Far (1977)
Das Boot (1981)
Trinity & Beyond: The Atomic Bomb Movie (1995)
A Boy and His Dog (1975)
Blade Runner (1982)
Star Wars -- Original and Empire Strikes Back, third is garbage.
2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)
History of the World Part I (1981)
Apocalypse Now (1979)
Alien (1979)
Paths of Glory (1957)
Full Metal Jacket (1987)
Patton (1970)

Ok, that's enough for now. If you like WWII stuff, WWII in HD (blu-ray or netflix) is REALLY GOOD. So is The Pacific. And so is Generation Kill (Iraq invasion though).

One film I watched a month ago, Metropolis-Fritz Lang. It's a 1920s silent German film. Just shows you kids do enjoy good films

many kids nowadays don't realize Total Recall, The Karate Kid, and Red Dawn were remakes... The Day the Earth Stood Still is well into many adults not knowing it's a remake territory

A Bridge Too Far
Cool Hand Luke
The Dirty Dozen
Psycho
The Birds
The African Queen
The Hustler

If you like foreign films, I recommend "Baran", "Song of Sparrows", and "Children of Heaven" by Majid Majidi. They are more like poems than normal films, you should enjoy the details and not a big ending. Good for all the family but not simple.

To Kill a Mockingbird. Great movie. You can actually watch it in its entirety in The Darkness video game.
