    I remember the feeling when I was young of entering a world of color, adventure, drama and music that took me away from the grey streets of New York City and learning about the real world around me too. I still get those same feelings whenever I see a classic film. The stories told, the performances made, the entire experience made me fall in love with movies and today that love affair with classic movies is stronger than ever.

    • Annmarie Gatti says:

      Isn’t it wonderful? That our fond memories and love for the classics are still so strong today… Thanks for entering and Good Luck 🙂

  2. Vickie L Gleason says:

    I love Classic movies mostly for the ability to take you to another place in time without all the special effects of today’s films. They push your imagination and sometimes the unspoken word leaves the most impact.

    • Annmarie Gatti says:

      Yes, I so agree… They didn’t rely on all the CGI and fast action… the story, the script, the performances, the direction stood on their own… Thanks for entering and Good Luck 🙂

  3. Mickey Fisher says:

    Classic films are special to me, as I sometimes picture myself alongside the characters. That doesn’t happen in today’s films. Also, the love scenes were far sexier, and didn’t have to be rauncy. The dialogue was snappy when called for, and in today’s films, when it is–it seems forced. And of course, there was Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly, Cary Grant, John Wayne, Spencer Tracy, Katharine Hepburn, Lillian Gish, Eleanor Parker, and so many more. We have yet to see their like, and never shall again.

    Currently, I do not have a Twitter or Facebook account.

    • Annmarie Gatti says:

      Yes, yes and yes… I agree on all counts… and no matter how many times I watch them, I just never tire of them… the dialog, the performances, the visuals… intrigue me again and again… Thanks so much for entering and Good Luck!

  4. Lisette says:

    I love them so much because there’s just something about seeing them with someone special that makes me just enjoy watching them.

    • Annmarie Gatti says:

      Yes! I love sharing the classics with my friends who enjoy them (and ‘get’ them), and also with friends that have never seen them before (and nine times out of ten, they thank me for sharing the film with them!). Thanks so much for entering and Good Luck 🙂

  5. Several reasons I love classic films: with most older films, the stories are so well written; I’ve grown attached to the actors ( both leading and character actors ) so much that it is like seeing old friends when they appear on screen; the movies are all tied in with memories from when I first saw them; there are genres that just aren’t being made today ( romantic mystery, musicals, medieval adventures ); and for the simple reason, that they are grand entertainment!

  6. Dillon Gonzales says:

    Classic movies are special to me because they evoke a different feeling than contemporary movies. The acting style, pacing and structure would seem almost foreign to someone who has never delved into that world. I loved getting wrapped up in the characters and the cinematography can be like a work of art. I love being able to track where modern movies have been inspired by all of the classics.

  7. Jessica G says:

    I love classic movies because I enjoy being transported to another time and era. It’s like time travel but through art and beauty. A lot of the movies surprise me with how good their special effects are, so that’s always fun to see. Finally, some of them have special memories and feelings attached to them. I used to watch Chitty Chitty Bang Bang on sick days, and The Wizard Of Oz makes me happy and reminds me of October and Pink Floyd 🙂

  8. Classic Movies are special to me because they are accidental time machines- they are a window to the past and to the now history that we study. They are also important because the story telling was always the top notch priority – production values were better and everything was made for the people by the people- unlike today with people making movies to “prove” something or push an agenda on someone.
