Watch those classic movies you’ve always heard about but never watched and delve into the history of what made film and TV what it is today or just stay for the dose of nostalgia with cult favorites. Here you can learn and get linked to the best and iconic movies that inspired the great directors of today.
Do your friends go on about old black-and-white movies and how they were better before? Do they seem shocked you have not seen this or that famous title? Some might even be silent! We feel you. Why watch something old when you can watch something new? It might feel strange or even boring, but the old classics are called classics for a reason, and we are here to guide you through those dusty old films so you can tell your friends you are also a film nerd!
Since the age of movies spans over one hundred years, it can seem daunting at first. But we have many lists to help you such as Best of the 90’s, modern classics and cult classic tv shows.
For a light and humorous start on this adventure into classic cinema, check out Stanley Kubrick’s satire “Doctor Strangelove” or “The Party”, both starring the iconic comedy actor Pete Sellers.
Hailing from Japan, Akira Kurosawa put the country on the map within the cinema world with his astounding samurai films. His magnum-opus is considered by many to be “Seven Samurai”.
More upbeat, what is now considered the golden age of musicals took place between the 1930s to the 1950s. Seeing Gene Kelly dancing through the rainy streets of Los Angeles in “Singin’ in the Rain” or Judy Garland finding out the secret of the Wizard in “The Wizard of Oz” is a must. Equally so is the romance between Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman in the all-time favorite “Casablanca”.
Want to dig even further? We have silent films that show what film was capable of even in 1922 with the iconic horror of “Nosferatu”, futuristic sci-fi ”Metropolis” or the late comedy genius Charlie Chaplin’s ”City Lights”. Let’s not forget menacing Orson Welles in “Touch of Evil” or “Citizen Kane” and countless other titles.
Whether you decide to go on this trip down the lane of history alone just to surprise your geeky friends, or together with a date, we have everything you need.
