OK, I've never seen Top Gun all the way through, either.

Confession is good for the soul.

Somehow I have never seen Citizen Kane or Rosemary's Baby. And it took me sooo long to get through Lawrence of Arabia.

I've never watched Gone With the Wind all the way through, either. Never seen Casablanca or Citizen Kane. I really don't like old movies. For some reason the women in them annoy me greatly (usually their voices, worse if they're singing) and I don't get them in general.

Wizard of Oz is a good story, but like I said.....the voices! Ugh. Maybe it's just the sound quality, but the "baby" sound of the womens' voices just annoys me so much.

I do NOT like Grease. The actors bug me. I usually like John Travolta OK, but not in that one.

I watch Sound of Music maybe once a year. I like most musicals as well, though I have also never heard of 1776. Music Man, definitely. Not one of my favorites, but my mom loves it.

I like Forrest Gump. It's sweet.

I didn't watch Edward Scissorhands until recently, because I thought it was scary (I do not like scary movies). But I liked it a lot.

My mom taped Schindler's List a long time ago (before DVR, LOL), but I just don't have the guts to watch it. I did enjoy (is that the right word for a holocaust movie?) Life is Beautiful, though.

1776 was a musical play about the writing and signing of the Declaration of Independence. Take a look at these scenes. I guarantee you will recognize some familiar faces (Adams, especially).

A few scenes:

For God's sake, John, sit down!

Who Will Write It?

He Plays the Violin (The obligatory love song!)

And the scene cut from the movie at the demand of Richard Nixon!

Cool, Cool, Conservative Men

I have seen a suprising amount of these. The ones I haven't I doubt I ever will.
1.CITIZEN KANE (1941) Never seen and never will.
2.CASABLANCA (1942)Thought it was boring
3.GODFATHER, THE (1972)Loved it, classic.
4.GONE WITH THE WIND (1939)I love movies of the old south so this was easy for me to sit through.
5.LAWRENCE OF ARABIA (1962)The length is daunting, haven't even tried to watch it.
6.WIZARD OF OZ, THE (1939)Classic, really great movie.
7.GRADUATE, THE (1967)Liked it but not sure if it should make a top 10 list?
8.ON THE WATERFRONT (1954)Saw bits and pieces but really not interested.
9.SCHINDLER'S LIST (1993)Good movie but I was going through a time of being highly interested in the holocaust and specific stories from survivors so I don't know if it would capture my attention now like it did then.
10.SINGIN' IN THE RAIN (1952)Gene Kelly......yum.
11.IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE (1946)Great movie.
12.SUNSET BOULEVARD (1950)heard of it but never looked into seeing it
13.BRIDGE ON THE RIVER KWAI, THE (1957)See above.
14.SOME LIKE IT HOT (1959)ONE OF MY ALL TIME FAVORITES
15.STAR WARS (1977)I think its a true classic and worth seeing at least once, try seeing it with someone who loves it. Their enthusiasm is contagious.
16.ALL ABOUT EVE (1950)Never seen this one
17.AFRICAN QUEEN, THE (1951)Snooze.
18.PSYCHO (1960)Classic, won't disappoint!
19.CHINATOWN (1974)Not interested. Isn't it really violent?
20.ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST (1975)Good movie. Worth seeing at least once, but not for the faint of heart.

I can't believe some of you haven't seen Grease?

that's it, you're fired unless you take a trip to Tunisia!

As for Grease, I think I may be the only person alive who hasn't watched it.

My coworker LOVES Lawrence of Arabia. I hadn't even heard of it until he talked about it. Then he asks me to make him a Lawrence of Arabia cake. I mocked a poster, lol.

I couldn't stand watching Gone with the Wind. Maybe it was because it was on TV with commercials, of maybe it was because it dragged ON AND ON.

I liked Titanic, but didn't LOVE it. I do enjoy Dances with Wolves (must get that on DVD, btw).

Never saw Casablanca, Citizen Kane, any Godfather movie, I don't remember the Wizard of Oz, and quite a few others that would probably be ranked in the top 20 or so.
post #40 of 51
I watch a lot of movies...but like many, have never watched Casablanca...I liked GWTW, but its nowhere near what it is hyped up to be imo.
The biggest movie I refuse to watch is Titanic, the parts I have seen are just brutally bad imo, and also imo, one of Leo's worst acting jobs ever, and I dont consider him that great an actor. Ive also never been able to make it through the 3 new star wars movies (episodes I-III), and find them generally brutal as well....I do like the original 3 though.

I haven't seen Grease, I don't want to either. Musicals bore me!

Schindler's List is a great movie. We had to watch the movie and answer questions about it during a class I took last term. At the time I was reading "The Third Reich at War". The books went into great detail about the Holocaust. Between the movie and the heavy subject matter of the book my mind was overloaded with all of the details.

I've never seen Citizen Kane, and only a little of Casablanca. We were forced to watch Gone with the Wind in grade school, I hated it.

I have not been able to sit thru the whole movie "It's a Wonderful Life".
post #46 of 51
I agree and Hairspray was as bad as Grease, terrible movies.

I wasn't crazy about Grease. I didn't like the message, which was that being "good" wasn't cool, and it was only after "Sandy" became a "bad girl" that she got the "bad boy" John Travolta. This is not the role that we parents wanted to teach our teens.

I'm glad "The English Patient" wasn't on that list. That's the only Academy Award winner that I walked out on.

I also didn't like "Slumdog Millionaire" and thought "Gran Torino" was the best movie I saw last year, and it wasn't even nominated!
