I Don't Wish I Could Quit You: 10 Classic Movies from the Modern Era That Never Got Old

By Rob Payne | Seriously Random Lists | April 25, 2013 |

Objectively, in terms of craftsmanship, what's rendered onscreen is precisely what the filmmakers set out to achieve and that confidence makes it easy to latch on. They are what we want all movies to be - good stories, well told. In sports, we just want the teams to play hard and put on a decent spectacle. When either miracle happens in either medium, I imagine that's how characters in "Game of Thrones" experience real magic for the first time. (As long as they aren't on the receiving end of, say, dragon- or wildfire.) It's why we come back for more, again and again. And again.

Without further ado, here are 10 Classic Movies from the Last 15ish Years That Just Never Got Old:

L.A. Confidential


Boogie Nights

Jackie Brown

Out of Sight

True Grit

The Prestige



Children of Men
