Customer Reviews

Classic, Indeed

Recently, I asked my son why he wouldn't want to watch an award-winning movie and he told me the reason was that it was in black and white and looked old. As I flip through dozens of channels on cable TV I notice the absence of the old black and white classics being shown. With the exception of less than a handful of stations, attempts to bring the classic movies of old to the forefront are quickly fading away from our younger generations' memory. However, with Film Classics, not only can users stream influential films (both silent and "talkies") from American cinematic history onto their iDevice, they can download them to be viewed offline over and over again. At the launch price of one buck, this app was a no-brainer for me. Additionally, the developer has been incredibly responsive on the Touch Arcade forum. Everyone can now carry a piece of history around in our pockets through the ingenious Film Classics app. I look forward to a greater number of movie selections in the near future.

Great for classic film buffs!

This is app has a very clean and polished interface. I was able to stream and download movies flawlessly. The quality of the video ranged from good to acceptable, but considering the age of the movies this was expected. I found the streaming to quite smooth and quick.

I hope the developer can add descriptions and details for each movie; right now you can only see the lovely film posters before viewing.

If you have an interest in these film classics, this is a fantastic purchase. Not everybody will care for these old flicks, but it is a great selection of old classics.

Almost there

These old classics are terrific if you can get them anywhere. The Wizard of Oz was one I could stream. It is a delightful example of film-making in the very early days when moving pictures were a novelty. You watch it for how a story is told (or not told accurately) to fit the medium of the day. Lots of movement for movement's sake!
I was unable to either stream or d/l Salt of the Earth which is a big disappointment.
This app has tremendous potential to show the landmarks of film making from the earliest silent movies through talkies (like Salt of the Earth made in the '50's) and maybe even color. But it's not there yet.
