I've always found it noticeably difficult to watch some of the old "classic" movies because I get distracted by the camerawork, storyline presentation (it WAS done differently back then), (by modern standards) sub-par special effects, lack of color, lack of movement etc. Generally I find that the oldest movies I can watch comfortably (regardless of how good the storyline is) are ones filmed within 10 years of the year I was born.
Many of my peers seem to feel the same way as well, as I've never had one of them pipe up with, "Hey, let's watch Bonnie & Clyde" when we're trying to select a movie to watch.
Any of you ever experience this?

I'm a respecter of visual arts, I'll watch anything as long as good thought process has gone into each story line, script, and shot.
I love the movies from the 40s' till the 60s'.0
