Windows 7: Best classic films that you've watched so far?

A couple of weeks ago "Oceans Eleven" was on one of the movie channels. This was the original with Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr, Dean Martin, Peter Lawford and several more unlikely thieves. I had not seen it since it was in the movies in 1960. I remembered how good it was. I watched about a half hour of it and just turned it off. The plot was bad. The acting was bad and none of the actors even resembled a bad guy. I usually don't like remakes of movies, but the remake was at least half way watchable. The original was just bad.

quickdraw2011,

That's quite a list. Too bad that none of them include links for streaming or downloading.

I have over 1500 movies on DVD. Got all of them off the Internet. There are some website where you can steam or download movies. But, if I tell you, I got to kill you. Ha! Ha! Check this one out. Watch movies online for free movie download at movie2k.to I usually watch the streaming ones as they become available. Look for smiley face ones to stream. You can download if you want to pay for there membership. I personally don't do that.

I currently have 1738 movies, not including the TV series videos, encoded to my video archive. I have no lack of internet sources available, but of course that isn't the same as a direct link to a specific movie. It would be nice to have a directory that would point directly to the right location.

Malwarebytes blocked your link. Must be a dubious site.
