The Prestige was in theaters barely over a year ago. That's not nostalgia. That's an absence of pathologically extreme neophilism.

—Alorael, who recommends watching The Battleship Potemkin, again or for the first time. That's nostalgia for a brighter, more revolutionary past.

A great movie, but certainly not old. If you want more dated David Bowie goodness, watch Labyrinth.

Or 12 Angry Men...

EDIT: If you are really feeling nostalgic, you could watch the first movie ever Roundhay Garden Scene ...

In that case, I'll add that while movies can be improved by nostalgia, very few movies are improved by nostalgia enough that bad movies become passable. It only really helps the movies that were worth seeing again anyway... @_@

Hmmm...The Sound of Music is one of my favorites. I like a lot of old movies actually, but I'm too tired right now to recall all of them.

It was just too funny seeing Jim Henson puppets dancing around David Bowie. That one scene with the shifting stairs was really weird though.

Ack, hated it! It didn't even pretend to make sense. And who was in charge of wardrobe anyway? His outfit was just hideous. He's supposed to be the goblin king, shouldn't he at least look better then the other goblins? Worst Jim Henson film I've ever seen, and I've seen quite a few.

On the other hand, when I want to return to the good ole days, I just pull out Batteries not Included or Short Circuit... or TMNT or Ghost Busters... or Star Wars 4, 5, & 6 or LotR trio... wait that's not old, um... Romancing the Stone? No, Crocodile Dundee, yeah that was a classic.

You remind me of the babe :P . Man, that movie sucked. It was plain terrible. Except for the puppy, and Ludo.

Completely unrelated, but that same week (when I first watched Labyrinth) we decided to watch all three extended versions of LotR back to back. So much fun.

I've been trying to do this, but it's difficult finding that much time to set aside...

I've seen more movies than I dare try to count. Out of these, I've assembled a list of some good & bad ones.

Here's a bunch of good older movies, some of which I can't get enough of:
It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World
Arsenic and Old Lace
The Big Sleep (1946)
The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
North By Northwest
Charade
Dr. No
Groundhog Day
The Blob
Murder By Death
Clue
Citizen Kane
King Kong (1933)
The Dirty Dozen
The Pink Panther (1964)
Casino Royale (1967)
The Dark Crystal
The Man Who Knew Too Much (1955)
The Magnificent Seven
Dr. Strangelove, or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb
La Cage Aux Folles

Now, here's some bad movies:
Plan 9 from Outer Space
The Blue Lagoon
Terminator
Super Mario Bros.
King King (2006)
The Pink Panther (2006)
Hairspray

I've seen several of their films. Both of them were great, highly talented actors, probably better than many today.

Puhleeze, you tell me who looks better. The goblin with the stylish two horned helmet and delicious sausage link necklace, or the poofy haired man wearing the frilly white shirt under the sad saggy grey and brown jumper? (which, I might add, was accompanied by very tall high heal boots) Watching him try to dance and sing in this outfit was pure torture.

:) Good quotes; here's my favorite from that movie:

"What would you do if you were stuck in one place, and every day was the same, and nothing you did mattered?"

"That about sums it up for me."

Groundhog Day was a good movie, but you had to pay close attention to pick up some details. It wasn't until my third time watching it that I realized "I've Got You Babe" played every morning related to the whole story.
