    I like some of the classics like Gone with the Wind and Sound of Music. Also the epic Ten Commandments with Charleton Heston.

    I also like 1950s SciFi movies.

    More modern movies: all James Bond movies, Man on Fire, The Pelican Brief, the Mummy movies, Braveheart, Kill Bill series, some Clint Eastwood, Lethal Weapon series and other things with Mel Gibson.

    I also like Film Noir and Humphrey Bogart movies.

    Just wanted to resurrect this thread by saying that I saw Psycho a few weeks ago at my aunt's house.

    Yeah, I gotta say it's a great film. I can see why it's highly regarded as a classic.

    AFAIK, it was the first 'modern' horror film, in that there were no castles, vampires or werewolves. It involved ordinary Americans, set in contemporary America.

    And it was pretty damn good, too.
