Post by: cdif911 on July 14, 2009, 10:03:26 PM

- Top Gun
- Big Lebowski
- Evil Dead
- Space Balls
- Full Metal Jacket
- Braveheart
- Schindler's List
- Rambo
- Requiem for a dream
- Rocky Horror
- The good, the bad and the ugly
- One flew over the cuckoo's nest (though its on my counter waiting to be watched!)
- Apocalypse Now
- Dr. Strangelove
- 2001: A Space Odyssey
- Heat
- Platoon
- Mystic River

yikes, I feel even worse after going through that...there's more too I'm sure

You should be ashamed! On the Waterfront is a pivotal movie!

Some others..

Mean Streets
Midnight Cowboy
Original Night of the Living Dead
A ton of Westerns/WWII Movies from the 50's and 60's
Every Lawyer movie ever..I can not stand them.
I have never watched Citzen Kane in its entirety
The Great Gatsby
a lot of girly movies like Pride and Prejudice..
I dunno

I've been beefing up my westerns lately. I watched Rio Bravo a few weeks ago

Bridge over the river kwia (i dunno how you spell that but I aint watched it)
The Deer Hunter

I've seen all of those. I'm here to save you some time.

Skip these:
- Top Gun
- Evil Dead
- Space Balls
- Rambo
- Rocky Horror
- Heat

Don't feel guilty about not seeing these. They're good movies, but not crucial:
- Schindler's List
- Requiem for a Dream
- The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
- Platoon
- Mystic River

You really need to see the rest.
- Big Lebowski is one of the funniest movies I've seen.
- Braveheart is just an excellent action movie
- Cuckoo's Nest is simply amazing. You'll love it.
- Apocalypse Now I almost put it on the list above, but there are too many classic scenes illustrating the absurdity of war. It's really good and very quotable.
- Same with Strangelove. It's a quirky dark comedy that's maybe not as funny as it used to be, but it's a truly memorable and quotable film.
- 2001 I know a lot of people who hate this boring movie, but I find it mesmeric, creative, intellectual. Approach with an open mind.

Also have never seen Star Wars movies and have no plans, too...

I guess Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs are other movies that everyone I know has seen, but not me...

I think The good, the bad and the ugly is by far the best western movie ever! In my opinion is a must. I also liked Rocky horror. For the rest I suscribe your ranking.

Not properly films, but I feel kind of embarrassed because I have never seen an episode of "Lost" or The Soprano's.

Everyone should also see A Clockwork Orange, if they haven't. Truly a classic.

I am embarrassed to not have seen so many Hitchcock movies.

Magnificent Seven is a great movie...   but Seven Samurai is one of the best movies ever made.  If you're debating between the two, watch the Japanese flick first.

Godfather III....  I wouldn't stress too much about missing that one.

i dont know if you should be embarassed, but you are definitely missing out. 

Even if you arent big into sci-fi.  ET and the original 3 star wars are amazing.


For me i can think of a couple:

Godfathers
Big Lebowski
Resevoir Dogs
Goodfellas
and Hoosiers






just playing Roy, of course I've seen Hoosiers

BLASPHEMY!  You're really missing out.  Also I saw someone say to skip Heat.  You're wrong.  I need to see Schindler's List though I don't really want to.  My summer goal is to import my entire dvd collection onto my harddrive.  1 dvd a day and it's coming slowly.  I just saw The Insider and it was good.

we could start a whole nother thread just about this. if you want to ease in on a historical level go with: The Searchers (classic Wayne / John Ford), High Noon (shot in realtime -- Gary Cooper and whoa Grace Kelly), Red River (first 360 degree shot and classic Wayne) or Fort Apache (Henry Fonda doin' his thing). If you wanna roll in agunz blazin' I'd just go straight to The Wild Bunch -- 'if anybody moves, kill 'em!"

All those movies are good!! The God Father serie? are you kidding me? Embarrased, that is one of the best series of movies ever made!! Your lucky I can't revoke TP's , cause I would revoke them all!

Now an embarrassed movie I have seen is Best In Show, thanks to my wife and to this day she gets mad if I bring it up! She just had to keep watching "its gonna get better I promise, my Mom said it was good."
Well guess what my Mother-in-law has bad taste in movies!!!!

I love war movies and that series is honestly the best movie/show/series I have ever seen hands down,from the acting, graphics, realizm, etc....I cannot believe it took me that long to see it.

Titanic is a great movie. For those who refuse to see it, I'm not sure how having "chick-flicky" parts is any worse than having mindless action. Powerful drama with well done special effects when the ship is sinking.

I can see how the movie wouldn't be comfortable for those who are uneasy with sentimentality, such as the 300 crowd (had to stop watching that mindless tripe after 10 minutes).

Citizen Kane bored me. I was more entertained by Casablanca, but I have a hard time getting into many of the older classics.

If you have already watched a lot of modern cinema, it is hard for older stuff to be fresh out of historical context.

I wonder how Caddyshack would hold up as a first time viewing at this point.  I love it because all of the jokes are so memorable, but would they still be funny today seeing it for the first time.  I'd like to think so, but audiences are different now.

Man, I loved both Best in Show and Brokeback Mountain. 

The two biggies that I have never seen are Godfather II and Casablanca.  I have also missed several movies by greats like Alfred Hitchcock and Billy Wilder.

I'm not really familiar with John Cassavetes work, and I know people that swear by his movies. 

And I've missed out on a lot of foreign stuff, life Fellini, Bergman, etc.

But besides Godfather II and Casablanca, I don't really catch a lot of flack for the rest.  I do, however, catch hell for a lot of TV shows that I've never seen.  I have never watched any of the HBO or Showtime programs that everyone has raved about, or any of the stuff on FX (except for one season of It's Always Sunny... which I loved).  I haven't had cable in a couple of years, and when Ive had cable I've never had the premium channels.

But Ive been plowing through movies like a madman since starting a netflix account last month.  Once I exhaust all my movie ideas I'll have to start burning through some of these TV programs everyone raves about.

Now an embarrassed movie I have seen is Best In Show, thanks to my wife and to this day she gets mad if I bring it up! She just had to keep watching "its gonna get better I promise, my Mom said it was good."
Well guess what my Mother-in-law has bad taste in movies!!!!
 Now Broke Back Mountain, I fell asleep within 10 minutes.....Thank God!

Man, I loved both Best in Show and Brokeback Mountain.

If you look on the side you will find plenty of other shows, like Weeds, True Blood, Nurse Jackie, the Tudors, and a bunch of non-premium shows (lost, heroes, fringe, etc.)

I did just see a handful of Entourage episodes a few weeks ago, and I loved it.  Totally destroyed the preconceived notions I had of the show.

Have also heard good things about Weeds.  I have watched the first 3 seasons of Lost.  Love it.

Now, Citizen Kane is a great movie.

Titanic, on the other hand, was sickening. But any movie in which Leo DiCaprio dies has some redeeming qualities.

But he died such a heroic death.  Might have been better if was one of the people who fell from the floor to the ceiling in the ball room and got impaled on a chandelier or something.

I share a few common movies with some people several times like Caddyshack, the star war movies and Godfather III.  The movie I'm most embarassed to have never seen is Scarface.

Godfather I and II really are great movies, especially the second one.

Shawshank is an incredible movie too.  My second favorite of all time (behind American Beauty).

Dark Knight surprises me since it was such a big hit so recently.

Some major pop movies like Dirty Dancing, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, that thing with Cusak holding the boom box over his head

All of the Rambos

All the Rockies except the first

Jaws Revenge even though there are people I know in it

There's about 50 films on the top 100 I want to see but my wife always wants to watch something new

Artistocats (I just want to see it, alright?)

The Natural

Brian's Song

some of the best pictures and nominees

Some of those are no real rush. However, there are a couple that I would humbly recommend you run, not walk, to pick these up haha...

The Rocky films are really quite good. All of them, 1, 2, 3, and 4, are entertaining at least. That's right, I said 1, 2, 3, and 4. Rocky 5? What do you mean, Rocky 5?

Ferris Bueller's Day Off is one of my favorites too.

Cusack with the boom box is "Say Anything" which is okay. But Bueller, and the Rocky series through 4 is worth watching immediately.

Also, if you are a baseball fan, The Natural is a must. If you are a big baseball fan, then you needed to see it yesterday  ;)

I'm not a huge baseball fan, but I cried at the end of Field of Dreams like everyone else.

Tried to give it to my father for a Christmas and he was like "I don't get it" and I doubt ever watched it. Definitely a top 5 worst father moment. I shoulda realized he just wasn't like that.

Was For love of the game good? How's about Bull Durham? Baseball movies seem like good movies. I generally liked Bad News Bears. Didn't see Major League 1 or 2

Take everything I say with the knowledge that I am a HUGE baseball fan.

However, I don't care who you are if you're not laughing at Harry Doyle in Major League 1 and to a slightly lesser extent 2 you don't have a sense of humor. I would recommend both of those to anyone, as they are just plain funny movies.

Bull Durham is a similar classic. I love that movie, and it has many moments that are extremely quotable and definitely worth watching. Again, big baseball fan, but that's a great movie anyway.

For Love of the Game is just not as good as any of the others. It's not bad, but do not under any circumstance see that movie before Bull Durham.

If you do try the Natural, it has a very interesting storyline. I would recommend reading the wikipedia entry for The Natural film, and if it interests you watch it. I love the film, but again, baseball guy haha

Not to be "that guy" who always says to read the book...  but every time I pick "The Natural" off the bookshelf, it doesn't go back until I've finished it all over again.  Great movie; phenomenal read (and good to experience both).

Schindler's List - one of Spielberg's greats and never saw it once.

The Exorcist - another classic that I never saw and really never care if I do

The Sound of Music - can you be a self styled movie buff without ever having seen this movie?

All Adam Sandler flicks before Waterboy - can you consider yourself  a lover of "guy" movies without having watched Billy Madison or Happy Gilmore?

James Bond movies with Pierce Brosnan or Timothy Dalton - just no interest whatsoever. Bond for me is Connery, Moore and now Craig.

Dr Zhivago - just never got around to it. Probably should have.

Saw - or it's sequels and my sons tell me I'm nuts not to have

A movie you should watch if you never have: Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil

Kevin Spacey, John Cusack, and Jude Law are phenomenal. I mean if they weren't all amazing actors in their own right, with their own masterpieces (for me John Cusack's will always be Grosse Point Blank, but whatever, another day for that), I'd say this was the movie they all look back on and say in 30 years "I did that, and I am proud"

Then, there is the fourth character. Savannah Georgia. The character played by John Cusack calls it "Like Gone with the Wind, on Mescalin..they walk imaginary pets here, on a [freaking] leash. Alright? And they're all heavily armed and drunk. New York is boring!" Could not be more spot on. The setting is just magical.

This was also the little fact about the director. Everyone has had the moment. They watch an amazingly perfect film, and then someone sitting next to them says "Clint Eastwood directed that" This was the movie that gave me that moment.

Then there is Minerva, the hoo-doo lady (the old lady from Ladykillers), and of course, the Lady Chablis.

This movie is just about awesome. Murder, voo-doo, great acting and a sassy transvestite.

Plus Clint Eastwood's daughter is a love interest of sorts...and she is gorgeous.

Edit: I'm watching it now, and I'm about 90% positive that I just saw James Gandolfini.

I like Citizen Kane -- and love The Deer Hunter.  Also like John Savage.  Catch 'Inside Moves' with Savage -- a little too warm and fuzzy for some, but a basketball flick with good acting and might bring a tear to your eye.
