So without further ado, we present a new take on the best classic movies ever (40 Best Classic Movies)


If someone asked you to list the best classic movies, you might rattle off titles like Casablanca, It Happened One Night, Citizen Kane, or other films from Hollywood’s Golden Age. And while those are definitely some of the best classic movies you can watch, our definition is a bit broader. Meaning, it also includes Heathers.

Think about it: What is a classic movie, anyway? For one, it’s a film that has a few years on it. (If it’s less than 20 years old, that’s basically a classic-in-training.) More important, though, it’s a movie that’s universally beloved or has etched its way into the fabric of culture in some significant way.

So without further ado, we present a new take on the best classic movies ever—one that includes your black-and-white favorites but leaves room for more modern icons, like Cher Horowitz. And the best part? Many of our best classic movies are on Netflix.

Do us favor, though: Don’t call them the “best old movies.” That’ll just make us feel bad.
