I've noticed that all of the films mentioned are from the last ten or so years (give or take)- is there something you particularly like about recent cinema? What are some pre-1990s movies that you enjoy?

I suppose the easy answer is to say that I've really never been introduced to older movies. I know, that's an extreme cop out to hide behind my age, but my parents aren't movie people and I'm not too adventurous standing in the aisles at Blockbuster. I am slowly discovering classics with the help of suggestions from friends, and that's part of the reason I think this community would be good for me. I figured I'd have a more recent list than other members, and this would be a good place to find recommendations.

(Apologies for the late response, I was out of town)

As long as you're willing to be open to new things, there's no shame in that! Still, are there any pre-1990s movies you've seen and would recommend?
