Fast Times at Ridgemont High


Wrong thread. Not that it's a bad movie, but it's too recent. We probably shouldn't even count movies from the 1970s, either, but there is probably no hard and fast cut-off date.

I DID go to post 1, page 1 to check for a cutoff date and didn't see what defined "old" and trust me, the 70s IS old!

As to the rest, my signature covers that...

Well, I'm from the '70s, so I know just how old it is!

The movies from the '70s are just so much different from what came before. I think films from the '70s are a lot closer to 21st-century film, than they are to the movies being made the previous decade. Not so much in terms of quality or originality or production value, but in terms of the ideas being presented, and the attitudes. Not all of them, of course, but in general.

I would agree.  The old Hollywood studio system was breaking down in the 1960s and fully blown by the 1970s.

There are five things, above all else, that make life worth living: a good relationship with God, a good woman, good health, good friends, and a good cigar.

Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you, Jesus Christ and the American Soldier.  One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.

The Blob

That one will always have a place in my heart as it is the last movie to truly scare me. I was checking under my bed for the blob for a year afterward.

Mind you, I was 6, but it made an impression.

When was "One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest" released? That was a good film. Found it, 75.

Newer movie, but interesting. There's a movie called "Brick", which is a story about a bunch of teens in high school. But the dialog is absolute perfect classic detective noir. Completely spot on. Close your eyes and you'd swear it is 1940's detective movie.

Unless there's an older movie by that title, I have to question its inclusion in "Classic Films". It's a great movie, undoubtedly, but it was made in 1990.

Unless, and I can't remember, if there's a scene in which our hero slaps the crazy girl. When the good guy hits a girl, it becomes an honorary classic film.
