Classic and "Classic" (Yes, There Is a Difference)

There are two definitons to the word "classic."
First there's classic.  This, in my book, refers to movies 1950's or 1960's and before.  (i.e., My Name is Julia Ross, Four Daughters, The Rains Came, The Diary of Anne Frank, Don Juan, etc.)
Then there's classic.  This means a movie that is so phenomenal that it's a definite must-see.  (i.e., The Shawshank Redemption, Titanic, Dirty Dancing, Footloose, Grease, Toy Story, etc.)
Of course, it's totally possible to have a movie that fits under both categories.  (i.e., Meet Me in St. Louis, The Wizard of Oz, Gone with the Wind, White Christmas, It's a Wonderful Life, The Sound of Music, Mary Poppins, etc.)
Just so ya'll know...So when I get mad at people calling modern films classic, this is why.  Because half the time they're probably not.  (*cough cough* The Social Network *cough cough*)
~Mini rant over.

P.S.  This was way better in the shower.
P.P.S.  And if anyone knows how to pass chemistry when the teacher can't teach the subject, HELP.

  1. Agreed. The word "classic" is so misused. As is the word "classy".
