looking for some recomendations

hey everyone i am fairly new to watching films/ dvd's or what ever it is you want to call them.

I am looking for some recommendations of older films. I am trying to expand my film watching. As i said in my intro thread the oldest movie i have is Child's Play.

I am open to all suggestions.

So please don't hold back.

thanks for you suggestions and your time

Luis

Re: looking for some recomendations

I've run across many good movies I never would have seen by doing this process.

Make an account at www.icheckmovies.com
Check the movies you've seen and then do this link http://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/unchecked/
By default, it'll sort the movies that are in the highest number of lists first. The stuff with many checks are generally pretty solid but the more you work your way through it, you'll find films that may or may not be to your liking.

They also have some lists based on genres, so if you like horror, there's a horror list with 500 movies.

Westerns ok
Lonesome Dove- Mini Series Great Western
Unforgiven
She Wore a Yellow Ribbon
Shane
Deadwood was a great series that ended to soon
Once Upon a Time in the West

Have you watched any of the Classic Horror movies, Frankenstien, Wolfman, Invisable Man, and for comedys Young Frankenstien and Blazing Saddles, and there is a thread about the Marx Brothers.

try "El Dorado" with John Wayne. I'm not big on westerns either but that's a good one. If you're looking for more of a western spoof try "Blazing Saddles"

Re: looking for some recomendations

It's A Wonderful Life (1946) for a feel-good story.

I'll assume you like horror given you mentioned Child's Play, so with that in mind:

Psycho (1960) - Hitchcock
The Shining (1980) - Kubrick
Halloween (1978) - Carpenter
