But can something be new and classic at the same time?


I stole this "new classic movies" meme from the lovely Cadiz. I have no idea who got to decide what movies made the list, but I hadn't seen this one before, so I figured it would be interesting. Feel free to steal!

Mark the ones you've seen with italics and the ones you particularly enjoyed in bold. I made them blue, too, since they didn't stand out that much in just italics.

  2. You MUST see "This is Spinal Tap". You would love it, I'm sure. Anyone who likes "Sean of the Dead" has the right sense of humour for Spinal Tap
