Iconic Movies

Have you ever started a conversation with someone and just been lost when they talk?  You know a lot about the topic, it’s just that you’re knowledge is on different aspects of that topic.  This has happened to me in the past.  Probably on everything I know a lot about, at one stage or another.

The one that really annoys me is when it happens with movies.  I love movies.  I’d watch movies all day long if I could; I’ve proven this many times.  Yet sometimes, when I bring up movies to someone they just say ‘have you seen’ and list some movie that I’ve heard of but haven’t gotten around to seeing.  It’s really embarrassing, especially when you’ve just said ‘I love movies’.

I’m a huge horror fan, but I like movies of all genres.  Though I am a horror fanatic, there are some holes in my collection.  For example I’ve never seen Psycho or Jaws.  I just don’t get how a shark can be scary when you live on an island that’s oceans contain no sharks.  Let’s face it he’s not going to swim up the drain and attack me while I’m sleeping is he.  Still the film is iconic and I hate judging movies before I’ve watched them.

So now I intend to fill in the holes in my movie trivia by watching the movies I’ve been meaning to see.  They won’t all be horrors, but they will all be reviewed on this blog.  I’ll also be comparing these classics to modern movies.  I’m going to watch one a week and post the review/comparison on Saturdays.  I’m going to start with Jaws.  If you’ve never seen it then give it a chance and we can see if it deserves to be called a classic together.

Between now and Saturday posts will still be going up on a daily basis so check back for reviews and previews on all the latest movies, games, TV shows and books.

What do you think?  What classic should I do next?  Let me know by voting and leaving a comment below.  Also don’t forget to subscribe and click the picture it moves, but wordpress is being annoying (which is happening a lot lately) and for some reason it won’t move unless you click it.
