 I have been sitting her with TCM on since I got up at 5:30 and of course being the classic movie channel it's got "ads" for all the old movies.  They used to be so epic, beautiful and well done back then...  guess that's why they are the classics.

It got me to wondering what movies today would be considered a classic 30, 40 even 50yrs from now...

What movies would you put in that category...what do you think will be classified as a classic like Gone with the Wind, The King and I, The Ten Commandments, or even in the league like Psycho?

I mean set design, costume, scripts just seemed so full of life then and the details they nailed down...

The only one I can think of at the moment would be Forrest Gump, so full of emotion, great acting etc. but I know there are others....

So what do you think would be classified a classic so many years from now and WHY??

tcm  My favorite movie channel!!!!  Love it.

 I cant get into most movies like most can.. I would watch bits and pieces and it would lose me. I did try watching the Titanic (and I am a History buff) and couldnt watch it. My hub and I was talking about this the other day because he likes Grease and asked if I wanted to watch it and I said no because once in my lifetime was enough.... lol I guess as I age and because I dont watch TV I find my interest changing a lot!!
