Sometimes no, but there are times where you can't beat a classic like Physcoand and Eraserhead.

It was sad one day when I mentioned Physco to a friend and all he had seen was the remake with Vince Vaughn.

Mmm, personally, they're not really my kind of thing but I can respect those who do enjoy them.

To add to all these amazing lists, one of my all time favorites would have to be Henri-Georges Clouzot's The Wages of Fear .

Anybody else like those old movies?

Personally, I'm a huge fan. I got into watching them last summer. I ended up watching...

- Psycho.
- Vertigo.
- The Birds.
- Seven Samurai (Again).
- The Great Dictator.

I'll probably go on another kick and watch some more Alfred Hitchcock and Charlie Chaplin. I'm a fan of them both.


I've moved this over to the Movies, TV... forum.

There are a lot of old black and white films I've watched and enjoyed. I'm not a fan of Hitchcock though. Seven Samurai is great (I like all of Kurosawa's work).

There are are also less old black & white films I've thought were done to good effect. Woody Allen's Manhattan is one I still adore (sure it's old now, but it was created long, long after color had become standard).

Ever watch The Seventh Seal? It's German. Dutch? Swedish? Something like that.

Swedish. Ingmar Bergman. I bet you particularly liked the playing chess with the devil part (later spoofed in Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, and no doubt elsewhere). I've watched many of his feature films, but that's not really my favorite. Not sure which is, but of the b/w stuff, The Virgin Spring is pretty intense. Recommended if you like grim.

The chess scene with Death was a classic.

How could I ever forget the legends of mystery/horror?!?!

Boris Karloff,Bela Lugosi, Lon Chaney, Lon Chaney Jr, Peter Lorre, John Carradine, George Zucco, Lionel Atwill, Vincent Price, Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing, etc were all fantastic whether in horror, mystery, drama, comedy, action, you name it. They were actors that unlike many today, weren't stuck locked in just one genre of films.
