Five Great Classic Movies On HBO Max
HBO Max, due to its ownership of Turner Classic Movies, has a bevy of amazing classic films from the golden age of cinema.
HBO Max, despite all the drama surrounding it, is an excellent streaming service. Not only do you get access to a fantastic library, but with the bonus of Warner Bros, you get access to the Turner Classic Movies hub, making this truly movie heaven!
With so many choices, it is hard to widdle down the best ones. But we will try our best!
Gone With The Wind
For some dumb reason, people have tried to cancel this movie. I don’t know why. It doesn’t endorse the confederacy or the south and is not pro-slavery, and it’s one of the best movies ever made.

This is a good-natured timeless classic that holds up and is fun for the whole family. It’s a fantastic adventure that doesn’t rely on CGI and a bunch of self-referential jokes.

A slow-burn horror movie that keeps you on a tightrope until exploding in the final act. It spawned some oddball sequels and showed that absolute horror could have mainstream appeal.

An underrated classic that is billed as a satire but is actually a moving and heartfelt film about having faith in others and being true to yourself.
When I was on set of BEING THERE I saw the deep connection between my grandfather and Peter Sellers. Yes-they shared a past-both stationed in Burma in WW2 but more than that the secret of their onscreen bond was a deep understanding of how to play comedy. pic.twitter.com/z78OsGZN0G

Happy birthday to the fabulously talented Shirley MacLaine! 🧡 Here she is alongside Peter Sellers in BEING THERE (1979), Hal Ashby’s deeply melancholy and hilarious satire. pic.twitter.com/s9TrCh40cm

There are lots of Mel Brooks films to pick from on HBOMax, so I’ll settle in on my favorite. Mel Brooks threaded the needle of brilliant comedy that never looked down at or mocked the audience. Something you can’t get a lot of in modern times.
I watched it once again today and it is a movie that I will never get bored of no matter how many times I watch it#YoungFrankenstein #Frankenstein#MelBrooks pic.twitter.com/jwFANjcGq6
