    As a youngster, I was fascinated by the movies

    depicting an apocalyptic future....The Day the Earth Stood Still (Klaatu Barada Nicto), or The Incredible Shrinking Man. Or how about Jason and the Argonauts, with the fighting skeletons? Jules Verne's Journey to the Centre of the Earth? Or another tack with Ice Cold in Alex...

    The only reasons I like old classic movies is

    because the sex looks fun and calm. The guy always kiss her legs then so on. Also the guys hair looks way better then today's hairstyle.

    The best courtroom drama ever (although technically it's a jury room drama) and it holds up pretty well today. Henry Fonda votes "not guilty" and stands alone against 11 others who are totally convinced that a young Hispanic boy fatally stabbed his father with a switchblade knife...

    I am a fan of movies of many genres.

    I adore 'Gone With the Wind', which represents old Hollywood. One of my favorite independent films is 'Henry Poole Is Here'. I also enjoy the John Hughes' classics, such as 'The Breakfast Club'. If I need a mood boost, I turn to 'Trading Places' and 'Moonstruck'. I guess...

    I love b&w movies from the 30's

    and 40's. The Thin Man movies with William Powell and Myrna Loy and "Screwball Comedies" like The Front Page and It Happened One Night are some of my favorites. I especially love how the women are portrayed-tough, sexy and beautiful.
