    Eternal Movies AIB Movies that didn't age well

    How about movies that you never get enough of despite their age. Of course there is Casablanca, but my list starts with Cool Hand Luke, The Big Chill, maybe The Graduate.

    Orson Wells' masterpiece 'Citizen Kane' comes to mind.
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    I'll agree with It's a Wonderful Life in that it's a cheesy flic.

    But the Wizard of Oz? It was all about fantasy. My 4 year old daugter was Dorothy for Halloween.

    Schindler's List? I just watched that movie a few weeks ago. Granted, I've never thought it was one of the all time greats, but to say it hasn't aged well is wrong.

    Goodfellas? Whenever I hear people talking about gangster films, this film is always mentioned.

    (ok, this is my 3rd post in the many "TV/Movie" "Aged Bad" "Eternal" threads, and I just don't get the whole point of them. I'll stop posting.)

    Adding to the list is Office Space.


    I agree with
    ofos Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid
    TOFB The Longest Day

    Have to disagree with
    illinoisplanner Titanic - that is plain bad fictionalized history. Sorry.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    I think you're confusing this "eternal" thread with the "hasn't aged well" thread. The Wizard of Oz has obviously stood the test of time, the test of eternity, if your daughter was Dorothy for Halloween. And I never said Schindler's List didn't age well...I said it did.

    Most modern films about historical events include some element of fiction.

    I agree with much of your list, although I have to argue with you on Top Gun. I can't believe that script was written with a straight face. To add my own, I have to add Dirty Dancing. This was never a great film, understand, but it certainly has gotten no worse, and still enterains me

    Young Frankenstein, I was going to say Blazing Saddles, but saw it recently and its looking dated.

    You're thinking of Elijah Wood. He went to St. Pat's so I didn't know him.
