Next Up on My Watch List: Classic Movie Haul

I have purchased quite a few new movies at great prices lately and I'm glad it's summer so I can finally watch more movies. If you have read any of my posts on movies before, than you know I love old movies and Leonardo DiCaprio and these purchases won't be surprising. Let me know if you have seen any of these and leave me your recommendations for movies you think I might like.

The Way We Were 1973
This one was mentioned on Gilmore Girls quite a few times, and I love Robert Redford so I'm really looking forward to this one. It's a love story, so I will have to wait until I'm in the mood for it.

The Maltese Falcon 1941 
I have been looking for an inexpensive copy of this one forever, so I was really happy to find it for a good price as a combo with another Humphrey Bogart movie Treasure of the Sierra Madre. Not too long ago I watched The Big Sleep and really enjoyed it so I have been wanting to watch more classic crime.  

The Barefoot Contessa 1954
Another classic Bogart mystery that I have yet to see. I know nothing about the plot of this one so it will be fun to go into it blindly. 

Cat on a Hot Tin Roof 1958
I just watched Tennessee William's A Street Car Named Desire (brief thoughts here all the way at the bottom) and I enjoyed it. It was pretty thought provoking, and I'm thinking this one will be pretty similar because the main male and female characters sounds a lot like the characters in Street Car. I haven't read the original plays for either of these, but I would love to so I can compare them to the movies. 

The Beach 2000
I LOVE Leo, especially young Leo. I'm a little nervous for this one because I think it's a thriller and I don't usually go for thrillers, but I will sacrifice for the viewing pleasure that it 2000 Leo.


  1. I've seen The Way We Were a couple times and really want to rewatch it. It's SO GOOD.

    1. Glad to hear you enjoyed it! Robert Redford is so dreamy, he's great in romantic movies.
      Thanks for stopping by Jillian!
