Hmmm...Eraserhead is probably my favourite classic movie. David Lynch goodness.

No.  This... This can't be anyone's favorite movie.  Can it?

Eraserhead?  Same here. 

The Princess Bride.  'Nuff said.

I have to say that after years of hype when I finally saw Reservoir Dogs, it was underwhelming.

My name is Antonia Montoya (or whatever his name was). You killed my father, prepare to die.

I love Princess Bride.

The classics are faaaantastic. If you haven't seen On The Waterfront with Marlon Brando, you're really missing out. And for those saps out there, it features the best screen kiss ever.

Regarding "The Third Man", it's worth checking out Graham Greene's novelization of the same name. It's not common that a novelist writes the screenplay to a movie adaptation. This case is the even rarer--the screenwriter novelizes his own film. Both are classics in their own respect!

This is a great thread! Keep going!

The Princess Bride is definitely a classic.  Night of the Hunter is a great thriller if you're looking for something old school:

No problemo! It's a brilliant line from a brilliant film.

Man, that movie is so cheesy though. But sometimes that's all I want to see.
