What kind of movie is considered classic? There is no specific measure.
But some films can stand the test of time, and some are quickly forgotten.
The classic part of a movie may be that the performance of the actors is memorable, or the meaning conveyed by the movie itself is thought-provoking.

The film is a textbook that traveled through time and space and was copied by countless newcomers. Every time I watch Zemigis's script, it is like a perfect score of Field's play. At the beginning of the process, how to grasp the contradictions, bury details, and control the rhythm, especially the gorgeous and smooth two-line setting at the climax. Coming is still exciting.

This film records the great life of the epic legend of Mahatma Gandhi of India.
In 1893, 24-year-old Gandhi (Ben Kingsley) was invited to South Africa to serve as a lawyer, determined to lead non-violent and non-cooperative protests to Indian immigrants, and was jailed.

Gandhi was jailed four times during the movement; with his unremitting efforts and the leadership of the Congress Party, India's independence was finally on the agenda, and Gandhi also went to London in 1931 to participate in a round table to discuss independence.

06 The Shawshank Redemption (1994)
The movie received a 9.6 rating on Douban, and the book and movie are great. I believe no one will dislike it.
In the late 1940s, the young and successful young banker Andy (Tim Robbins) was jailed for killing his wife and her lover. In this prison called Shawshank, hope seemed empty, and the punishment of life imprisonment undoubtedly destined Andy's next life in despair.
Before long, Andy tried to approach the prestigious Red (Morgan Freeman) among the prisoners and asked the other party to help himself with a small hammer.
Taking this as an opportunity, the two gradually became familiar, and Andy also seemed to find his own way of survival in a jail of mixed fish and dragon, sin and black and white. He used his expertise to help prison management evade taxes and money laundering, and at the same time, gradually gained courtesy among prisoners by virtue of his interaction with Rhett.
On the face of it, he had changed from hatred to indifference to the high wall like Rhett, but his desire for freedom still pushed him towards the hope and goal in his heart. The truth about his crimes seems to have taken all this one step further.
Takes a strong man to save himself, and a great man to save another.
These walls are kind of funny like that. First you hate them, then you get used to them. Enough time passed, get so you depend on them. That's institution alized.
07 Forrest Gump (1994)
It transcends times and tells a fictional story. The protagonist is the youngest, sweetest, most honest, and most innocent young person you have ever seen in this world.

A-Gump goes to school like an ordinary child, and knows her lifelong friend and love Jenny (Robin Wright Penn). With the love of Jenny and her mother, A-Gump starts a lifetime with the "scuds" given by God. Stop running.
In the movie, A-Gump constantly overcomes difficulties one after another and out of adversity one after another. His life was made up of heroic acts reported in the news on any given day. Every aspect of the movie is perfect, even if you watch it a hundred times you won't get bored.
"Stupid is as stupid does."
