    Hard to beat '2001' A Space Odyssey, in my book. But maybe it only goes with the time, as it were!

    Brief Encounter, the Big White, The Piano, LOTR (all three), Chocolat (just to hear great actors unable to maintain accents throughout the film), Silence Of The Lambs, Moulin Rouge, Great Expectations (David Lean version), Alien......and those mentioned by other posts above......I'll think of some more later.

    Twelve O'clock High, Stalag 17, The Great Escape, The Longest Day, What's Up Doc, Gone With The Wind, To Kill a Mockingbird, Stage Coach, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, Fiddler On The Roof.

    There are many more classics to see. You have not lived until you have seen the Hope/Cosby Road flicks, Going My Way and The Bells of Saint Mary's. I would go more by the great actor's work. Any picture with Cary Grant, Bing Crosby, Gregory Peck, Audrey Hepburn, John Wayne, Jimmy Stewart, Katherine Hepburn, Clark Gable, Clint Eastwood, or Fred Astaire should be considered.

    Yep, Clint Eastwood fan myself. Love all his films even in Gran Torino he's still a tough guy.

    Films nowadays suck. It's only gonna get worse.

    These aren't classics, but I really liked "The Adjustment Bureau" and "Inception."

    No contest, you sabsolutely must see The Point. And yes, I said sabsolutely; my spell checker will not work, okay? You must see it because it answers many deep questions. It still holds up today.

    As Nillson said, "I was on acid and I looked at the trees and I realized that they all came to points, and the little branches came to points, and the houses came to point. I thought, 'Oh! Everything has a point, and if it doesn't, then there's a point to it."

    Read the Internet. Clearly, most postings prove that you do not need a point to have a point. As Oblio -the only round headed kid in town eventually discovered. The Point, a must-see for the ages. Well, the ages circa 1971.

    Then you must see a few good 3D movies, Classics from the Golden Age of Hollywood, anything with John Wayne, all Beatles films, several properly preserved technicolor releases, (IB, a tech thing) and if you can find it, see "The 3Com Production Training Department's Operator's Guide To Setting Up, Running, and Cleaning Cell One Routers." I produced that one, it is a classic and rare.

    Seriously, the list of 'Must See' movies is a long one. I suggest you also look at every Cute Kitten videos on You Tube.
