Movie Fans...your favorites.
  • I was just wondering what types of movies everyone here enjoys sitting down to; and what are a few of your favorites?

    As for me, I am a HUGE fan of classic horror and Sci-Fi movies from the 1920's - 1960's. I am also a big fan of silent movies as well. For the most part, I enjoy the older "Golden Age of Hollywood" movies and the actors and actresses that used to grace the Silver Screen. My wife and I gleefully boast a DVD collection in excess of 3,500, and it grows monthly.


    Some of my favorites are:


    Nosferatu (1922, silent)

    The Lost World (1925, silent)

    Metropolis (1927, silent)

    Edison's Frankenstein (1910, silent)

    When Worlds Collide (1951)

    Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954)

    THEM! (1955)

    20 Million Miles to Earth (1957)

    Night of the Living Dead (1968)
  • I really enjoy horror films, good and bad, as well as a good comedy.

    Some of my favourites

    Spinal Tap (classic)
    Theatre Of Blood (hammer classic)
    Dawn of the Dead (as well as the other Romero Zombie films - the originals though)
    Dance Of The Vampires (Polanski at his best, also known as The Fearless Vampire Killers)
    Also i have just got into the really low budget rip off films, they are hilarious, check them out, you can usually get them for peanuts.
    Some good ones -

    Snakes on a Train (You got to love it)
    Nightmare Hostel
    Transmorphers (Not a spelling mistake)
    28 Weeks Later

    These are really funny for all the wrong reasons. The best line is featured in 28 Weeks Later when homeless zombies attack the Police to cries of "The bums are eating the Cops!!!!"
  • Pokerdon,

  • O you like the old german films huh. Metroplolis was pretty amazing for its time, effects are still pretty well done. I recomend The Cabinet of DR Caligari (1925 or so) if you havnt seen it. Its on utube
  • I have The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, and yes, some of the early German silents were (and still are) awesome.

    Did you know the sets were made out of paper, with the shadows painted on the walls.
