Classic Movies 1 - Classic Movies 2

What movie do you think of when you hear of a "classic movie"? Do "Casablanca", "Gone With the Wind", or "Lawrence of Arabia" come to mind? What constitutes a classic movie is largely a matter of personal preference, but there are some films that are widely recognized as classics. These films were seen as crystallizing some concept or story that had never been tackled before. In other words, they were "ground-breaking" for their time. Now, there are even movie channels dedicated to showing nothing but classic movies!

What movies of today will be the classics tomorrow? It is hard to say, but there are a few from within the last few years that could be considered classic at some point. In fact, one website listing classic films has already listed The Philadelphia Story as a classic. This film was about one man's struggle with HIV/AIDS and was the first of its kind to be made on the subject. It was released in the 1990s, but made such an impact that is now considered a classic by some.

It might be worth some time to go over a list of classic movies on the Web to see how many you have already watched. Are there some that would still be good to watch? Definitely. That is why they are considered classics-they are practically timeless. "Miracle on 34th Street" is a classic movie that is always replayed on television around Christmas time-its message is timeless and still resonates with the public after all these years. Do not discount a movie just because of its age; some only get better with time.

Turn on a classic movie channel or go to your local video store and see if there are any movies that appeal to you. You may find that watching it enriches your life.
