I like older movies. Off the top of my head, war movies like The Great Escape, The Longest Day, The Bridge On the River Kwai, The Guns of Navarone, The Marine and Tora, Tora, Tora.

 

Some others: Picnic, Ben Hur, The Robe, It Happens Every Spring, Singing In the Rain, The Lost Weekend, On the Town and Bringing Up Baby.

 

A few of my favorite comedies are from the 70s, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Young Frankenstein and Blazing Saddles.
