    I started watching this movie one day and 10 minutes in I was mesmerized and could not move from the screen.  It was so good. :)

    There are some major classic films worthy of reviewing. QuA's list is excellent, and I would add:

    Lawrence of Arabia.

    War & Peace.

    12 Angry Men.

    Advise and Consent.

    Seven Days in May.

    And, in my view, the greatest film ever made: 2001, A Space Odyssey (1968).
