Time to admit it: Movies you HAVEN'T seen but EVERYONE ELSE has


Recommended Posts

We recently had a "Guilty Pleasures" thread, and a "Best" and "Worst" movies thread, and these helped spark an idea.

 

I'll start. The focus here is on movies that are either considered Classics (Cassablanca), or are an integral part of pop culture (Star Wars). Ones that would make people say "You haven't seen THAT?"

 

With the release of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, I'm embarrased to admit that I've never seen Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. When the DVD came out, there was a huge deal because they originally didn't release a widescreen version, but then a widescreen verison was released. I planned on getting it, but never did. I've never seen more than 10 minutes of it on TV.

 

There's also TONS of others I haven't seen. I could go on and on, but the one that tops my list of "I really need to see this one" is The Godfather. It's coming up soon in my Netflix queue.

I finally got around to watching the Godfather 1 and 2 and Goodfellas; for many years they were 1, 2, and 3 on my list. Now I might have to go with Josh's pick in Citizen Kane, or maybe Casablanca.

 

Oh, and number 3 would have to be The Transporter, based on its rabid following here. :tu

Same here.

 

Never seen Lawrence of Arabia all the way through. I *think* I might have seen Close Encounters of the Third Kind when I was a kid but I could be wrong. At any rate, I have little meaningful recollection of it.

 

A couple of years ago, I learned that one of my friends had never seen Star Wars. We fixed that right away. His favorite scene was when Vader force-choked the guy who dissed the Force :)

I've been making a bit of an effort to see some of the movies that I know I should see. I just recently saw Goodfellas for the first time, Boondock Saints is another that people are always talking about at work and I just saw that. 25th Hour is another one.

Casablanca (we started watching one night but weren't in the mood for it)

Godfather (any of them - I've seen a good hunk of pt II, and I saw pt I while we were drinking, and don't recall much of it)

Citizen Kane

 

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (read the book as a kid)

Rocky (seen bits and pieces)

 

 

Taking inspiration from you guys' listed stuff.

 

I did see "Gone with the Wind" with Stacey a while back, she traded it for The Seven Samurai (my pick). Actually a pretty good movie, I was surprised.
