I think many of these films have aged well.  I would watch Superman I, II, Batman,  Temple of Doom, and Moonraker have aged nicely.  I would rather watch these movies again than the overrated Casino Royale, the boring Matrix movies, the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, or the awful Superman Returns.  I didn't care much for Donner's version of Superman II.  I thought most of Lester's cahnges were actually improvements.  Christopher Reeve was terrific as Superman.  So it isn't as gritty as some of the other comic book movies.  So what?  Temple was a great roller coaster ride, though I would skip that horrible dinner scene.  I can still quote lines from the original Batman verbatium.  Not just the line but how they were spoken.  Even the Dark Knight can get into my head the way the origianl did.  Moonraker had the best opening sequence of any Bond movie ever.  It had great action scenes and Roger Moore was in top form as 007.  I don't care what anybody else says, Moore is my favorite Bond.  Finally, when you have a chief fireman as cool as Steve McQueen, you don't need anything else.  I loved The Towering Inferno and continue to love it.

Tron wasn't very good to begin with so why would it age well.  Yes the special effects were great but the film was dull.  The same goes for Highlander.  I don't think it was that good anyway.

Temple of Doom is AWESOME! "You call him Docktuh Jones!"

Roger Moore is the BEST Bond, but FYEO is my fav Moore Bond film.

gauley, obviously we will never agree about Batman but make mine Burton's til someone else can surpass it. And the fact that it influenced the much beloved TAS only makes it dearer to me

And everdreaded is cool, see he liked AVATAR :) Anyway I'm more relaxed and not as combative about AVATAR now that it has taken over the world

Joe- you suck :) kidding bud but still disagree with the list

I get what you're going for with this list but I too disagree about "Highlander" being on it. I watched that movie the other day for the first time since the mid '90 and was surprised at how well it had aged. Indy doesn't belong on this list either.

I couldn't agree with you more about Superman though, Untill recently I had not seen those films since I was very young and they are not at all how I remember them.  Now I'll adimit that I am no fan of superman - far from it - but when I was a little kid I did like the movies and rememer them being pretty good, I thought they were kind of serious, fairly grounded action/adventure movies but they're not. They're cornball, slap stick, way over the top, silly cartoony fluff, much in the same vain as the old Adam West Bat man show. it was almost offensive how bad they were. Awful just Awful.

Most of the movies in the article have flaws. But it's not like modern movies don't have flaws

I prefer Burton's batman over Nolan's, the Prince soundtrack and all.  Health ledger was a good Joker but Nicholson was better.  I've been saying so since I saw TDK.

Highlander is and always was wonderful.  The whole concept of the immortals fighting for a "prize" is kind of vague to begin with.   Where did  the "prize" come from and who made up all the illogical rules?  The attempts of Highlander II to clear it all up fell flat.  Just accept it as a fantasy and run with it.  The TV series is from an alternate Highlander dimension where Conner McLeod and the Kurgan never fought.  And the reason Kurgan didn't kill McLeod on the battlefield is that immortals get stronger the longer they live.  Since the Kurgan was confident of his ability to kill McLeod at his leisure, he let the lad live longer so he could be a better meal.

I really loved Tron, back when I was a little girl.  It's the movie that brought Jeff Bridges to my attention.  I haven't seen it in ages.

Temple Of Doom stated with a dance number with Anything Goes in Chinese.  Nuff said.

You could add The NeverEnding Story to the list.

Temple of Doom is still holding up in my opinion, except for the parachute raft scene.  The opening with  (L-Owe : phonetic spelling) is still great.
