I am severly lacking in viewing films that are pre 1990.  Please, please give me a few suggestions of films to go and see.  Mainly classics (US or Foreign).

Thanks

EDIT:  Changed Post to Pre.

EDIT: Scratch redirect. Just a helping hand as some movies are listed there.

"Amelie", "Waking the Dead", "Fight Club", "Pulp Fiction", "Rushmore", "The Limey", "Three Kings"... I could go on like this for a while.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

Goodfellas, Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, Mean Streets, Full Metal Jacket, The Shinning, Scarface, Platoon, Apocalypse Now, Dog Day Afternoon. Obviously, there's a lot more I can't think of right off the top of my head.

I followed GT's advice today and saw "Dark City", and i loved it.

From the IMDb:

"Sets from the film Dark City (1998), including rooftops, buildings and others exteriors sets, were used in this film. The rooftops that Trinity runs across at the beginning of the film are the same ones that John Murdoch runs across in Dark City."

The similarities in the movies is pretty striking witch is odd when they were made allmost simultaneous. Does anyone know the connections between these two movies?

Down By Law, 8 1/2, Raging Bull, Mystery Train, Rashomon, The Muppet Movie, The Running Man, and Deathrace 2000.

Some good movies, some shitty movies, but films nonetheless.  I could go on forever.
You can't take a dump on me.  It's alright if you want to pee.  Cause I like the smell and I like the taste, wouldn't want it to go to waste.

Both made in Sydney, Australia. Both excellent.

Just watched Primary Colors for the first time the other night and thought it was excellent. Fantasic perfomances, esp. Kathy Bates, extremely well written, big Mike Nichols fan.
