In 30 years will become considered classics?

I think the DEVIL'S REJECTS will become a cult classic.
I don't think Tarentino's movies count for me- because he is so popular- they become classics like the day after they are released.
What movies do you see getting dated and played out in a few years?  I see BARBIE getting dated real fast. Like Honey Boo Boo and MTV.

Devil's Rejects, for sure.

I feel Scream is pretty classic. Some disagree, but I feel it'll be looked back on fondly.

Dogma, the Kevin Smith film.

I liked the first SCREAM- but after that it became what it was satirizing in the first place.

I think SCREAM is already a classic of horror, because it was satire in the first place. It just happened that it kind off revived the genre, since new generations watched a bag of cliches that were meant for older viewers, and thought they were great. Funny how some things turns out sometimes.

LORD OF THE RINGS will always be the greatest film trilogy of all time, just as it was the greatest literary trilogy of all time!

^ I agree with that.

As far as Lord of the Rings- I don't think so. It's for Tolkien fans. Which I am not. But that's just me.
I like my fantasy films much darker. Hobbits...I dunno. Bring in a cyclops that kills hobbits and roasts them on a spit and I might like it.

I agree on both counts. MULHOLLAND DRIVE is one I think will stand the test of time.
I enjoy some of the Marvel movies (Captain America) but it's not something I would watch more than once.

Yeah. I didn't like AVATAR from day one. All hype and 3-D s**t. A disguised cowboy and indian rehash without any originality at all.

I love the Marvel films, and they are classic, but yes. Glued to their time.

With the age of streaming the way we look at "classics" has clearly changed. I'm hesitant to say what will be deemed classic since society is no longer tied to the standards in a pre-2010's world. It's a layered argument that goes into WAY too much I don't want to go into here.

I don't think so. Some films age well; some don't.

Regarding LORD OF THE RINGS: the movie made an impact so huge on the film industry that it's most likely going to be considered a classic if it's not already. Fantasy movies were usually Conan ripoffs with terrible scripts, awful special effects, and lame wardrobes. While there were a few exceptions (DRAGONHEARTH comes to mind), most of them were garbage.
When LORD OF THE RINGS came out, it set a new standard that was hard to surpass. Before it, when people wanted to give an example of a high-budget, epic, and long story, they mentioned BEN-HUR, nowadays is LORD OF THE RINGS. Three hour-long movies suddenly became something not so crazy.

The thing that surprised me the most about LORD OF THE RINGS was the fact that I felt it was barely promoted, at least in my country. I was already a fan of the books by then, we even played the tabletop RPG, and as a teenager, I waited eagerly for the movie: the only thing I had to keep me going was a single trailer of like 10 seconds, showing the Fellowship in the mountains (they didn't even said the names, we had to guess). That was all. I sincerely thought I was going to be only me with my friends in the theater.

In contrast, when HARRY POTTER came out, I had no idea what the hell it was, and yet I saw it promoted everywhere: fast food chains, television, etc. Never cared for it, but I always felt its popularity was ridiculously forced.



Going back to the topic: I believe MATRIX is going to be considered a classic of science fiction in the future. While personally, I didn't like it, as I thought it was too boring and needlessly complicated, it made a big change in the genre. I think the mythology it created allowed other directors to come up with their own ideas and expand upon its world, which I think it's great.
