    I was talking to a friend a few days ago about movies, she said she has never seen any of the Star Wars movies, she "knows Darth Vader and the hair buns woman".

    So what movies have you never seen that most people consider "must watch". I'll start -

    Scarface
    Gone With The Wind
    Casablanca (seen some of it, not in full)
    Citizen Kane
    Superman 4 (that's a joke....i have seen it).

    I'm a film fanatic. But I have to say that I only saw Top Gun 2 years ago for the first time and I still have never seen Dirty Dancing in its entirety. Other then those...well :smile:

    I love movies, but since I can't stand the smell of popcorn at the movie theater, I pick up the DVDs or VHS tapes at my library when they're available. I haven't seen the following, and probably never will.

    Titanic
    None of the Batman series
    None of the Harry Potter series (read the first book and thought it was horrible)
    ...I'm sure there are many I'm forgetting.

    Lord this could be a very long list for me. But I guess the biggest ones would be:
    Star Wars
    Rocky
    Funny I don't think I missed anything by not seeing them.

    I'm generally a pretty big movie fan, but I just haven't gotten around to those (and several others) yet.
