Of course, some of the films from that period are dated, mostly the big-budget Bibical epics. But, on the whole, most of it is as fresh today as it what was when it came out.
Same here. Most of my favourite actors are either dead or too old to appear in films.
I agree. I do think Hollywood had a golden era (from around the begining of the nineteen twenties to the end of the fifties), but Hollywood will continure to make good films and bad films. Unfortunetly, at the moment, it seems to turn out more bad ones that good ones. But this will undoubtedly change.
Except a few movies like Indieana Jones, Das Boot and Chariots of Fire, most films from the eighties, especially the crowd pleasers, have become dated.
