    Well, it's about time too add more movies to my DVD collection. I think I'll get the 1966 movie "The Russians Are Coming, the Russians Are Coming". Any recomendations for "Classics" along the same lines as that one ??

    I like the movie Dirty Harry, but I don't know if it's a classic or not.
    I also saw this old movie made in the 30's or 40's, it was good. I forget the name though.

    I don't slip in crap, I tell it like it is. The "Classic Movie" genre can suck fruit. Good is good. Well made is well made.

    If you can't see the genious of Bebop and Akira just because it's animated, try taking the blinders off
