Plenty of other so called 'classics' I haven't seen such as Casablanca and The Graduate, but I don't consider these essential viewing like the 1st two.
The one with Sean Connery? ;)
The supehero ensemble. I edited my post to make more sense but too late haha.
The former is one I am ashamed to have seen.
I really don't understand why is it so much hated by the fans of show, though.
Psycho you should go watch right now! The first half especially is extremely engaging. (:
I never got why The Graduate is considered a classic. The protagonist is the least likable character in the movie.
Why would you be embarrassed about not seeing something that you have no interest in seeing? I honestly don't understand this at all.
Do those sentences have something to do with one another in your opinion, or did you just add the second one as a random thought?
A random thought. I first meant to say there's not a likable character in the movie. But then I realized Elaine is rather bland and Mrs. Robinson is a likable but inconsistent character. It is one of the reasons I don't like the movie I suppose. That, the awful music and the insipid storyline.
Sorry, whenever I type in English, my sentences are very unclear. :(
Ah, ok then. No worries. The sentences were clear, I just wasn't sure if they were meant to be connected o not. :)
I don't remember particularly liking the movie, either, and it didn't make any big impression, but I don't think I've seen it this millenium, and don't remember it that well, so can't really comment on it.
As a noir fan, Chinatown is high on my list. I think it's still on Netflix, so when my college semester is over I'll be watching a lot of the content on there, including that film.
Yeah, Psycho is brilliant on every level, especially in the areas of cinematography and score, as well as how groundbreaking it was at the time. You see a woman in a bra-GASP! Also, a toilet is seen flushing on screen for the first time ever in cinema! Those two things alone make it essential viewing. ;)
Mockingbird is self-explanatory; watch it if you want to see the best father in cinema. Can't get much better than Atticus.
@AceHole, Casablanca is the definition of essential viewing. The cinematography, score, story, all of it is brilliant. It is very different from the movies of the time as well, often grim and sombre to reflect the raging era of WWII that was suffocating the world at the time. It is set the week before Pearl Harbor and US involvement in the war, after all.
The Graduate from what I remember is worth seeing too. Not a film that blew my mind, but on the whole it isn't time wasted. Watch it for the last two minutes-some of the greatest subtle acting I've ever seen-and a brilliant soundtrack that reflects the time the film was made in. If you don't like Simon and Garfunkel now, you will after seeing this film.

Young people today eh?!!!
And be on the look out for one of the most famous gaffes in filmmaking as a child extra stuffs his fingers in his ears before...something important and unexpected happens.
In all seriousness, NbNW is a must-see for all fans of early Bond, as you can see the influence in so many places.

We've all seen that movie as little kids-- probably hundreds of times growing up.
