Avoid New Movies: 10 Classic Films That You Have To See

Are you a big fan of older films and know of any that are considerably better than the movies of today?

A Redditor asked the question, and several people responded with films from other decades that are superior to the movies today. Here are the top-voted choices.

Redditor oniwolf382 nominated “The Sting. Seriously, watch it. I'm surprised Hollywood hasn't decided to remake it yet. User hoginlly said, “I'm so glad I didn't have to scroll far for this! The best film!”

PrettyHopsMachine agreed, “Comedy is probably the most challenging genre to maintain its relevance over the years. This movie is timeless."

Some Like It Hot (1959)

TGMcGonigle said, “I recently re-watched 12 Angry Men the other night. I had forgotten how good it was. The acting is superb; it's set in a jury room with no air conditioning and no fan during a New York City summer, and you can feel the discomfort the actors feel in that sweltering room.

ArchStantonsNeighbor admitted, “I just watched M recently, and it's incredible. Peter Lorre is so great. 12 Angry Men, I can't say enough about it. The cast is excellent, the acting is great, and it's all set in one room.”

M (1931)

StickOnReddit confessed, “I can't do most war movies, but I'm always down for The Hunt For Red October. There's something about how they established scenes back in the day that new films don't seem to handle very well, if at all.”

Ebon_Owl confessed, “As a man, this made me almost drop a tear a couple of years ago. It was just that well done and made me realize how modern movies have done so bad.” Side Note: Men can and should cry.
