Do you ever watch old or classic movies?

I am not typically a fan of older B and W movies. I just usually find the dialogue off putting, and don't like watching things in B and W. However, I did watch a Halloween scary type movie that dated from 1945 last night on TCM. It really helped to have the host introduce it and tell what it was about though,because if I hadn't had that background information I would have probably gotten frustrated. The movie had Michael Redgrave and Sally ANN HOwe, both of whom I seemed to dimly recognize. Do you enjoy very old movies?

I started watching the original Odd Couple last week with Walther Matthau and Jack Lemmon. I saw it in the Drive in when I was a little kid. I didn't find it very entertaining though and switched it off.

We have one channel that plays only old movies. Sometimes I come across a good one.

Yes, TCM only plays old movies, but some of them are from the 70's like Jaws and Grease!

I really don't watch many old movies and usually prefer something more current

@snowy22315 I love old movies. Some of them have come to Netflix here and I watched Gone with the Wind again and want to watch others.

There definitely is a market for it, or TCM wouldn't exist.

Some of my all time favorite are old classics especially those based on classic books.

I just find I can't relate to them very well. The other thing is that everybody is smoking all the time!

@snowy22315 If it is a well made one on some good book and they do justice to the book and portray of characters, I enjoy it. Though we can not relate to it in present scenario.

@arunima25 Yes, I find I can relate to them often as welll. I meant can't. We often can't relate to them in modern times.

I don't mind old movies if they are classics.

I just can't get that excited about a black and white movie.

Yes, from back when movies really relied on stage storytelling (rather than CGI)

We love black and white movies/tv shows. Yesterday we watched Voodoo Man (1944) with Bela Lugosi. With Halloween around the corner we are watching more movies like this. We're watching House on Haunted Hill (1958) with Vincent Price now

I do like the Twilight Zone TV show which was shot in B and W...but I like color for the most part.

I watch old movies all the time, particularly the "film noir" (The Maltese Falcon, Niagara, Vertigo, The Lady in the Window), I liked those ones.
