The Godfather Movies....It really bugs me that I have not watched them. I felt the same about Band of Brothers and just had the opportunity to watch that series in the last few weeks. 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.

Setting aside the 3 and a half hours might have something to do with it!  Break em up if you have to (the first couple anyhow, part III is skippable)

The Matrix
Titanic
the Godfather Series
I've also not seen Titanic. However, rather than be embarrassed, I've always been rather proud of it.

i might take some heat for this, but Titanic is a good movie.  It has some really chick-flicky parts, but overall its a good movie. 

As for the Matrix, im not too big of a fan.

Edit: anyone who has a problem with me liking Titanic can speak to my associate pictured in my avatar.
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 and casablanca
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.

boy, the jingoism there was pretty bad. i beg forgiveness.
I believe Gandhi is the only person who knew about real democracy not democracy as the right to go and buy what you want, but democracy as the responsibility to be accountable to everyone around you. Democracy begins with freedom from hunger, freedom from unemployment, freedom from fear, and freedom from hatred.

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.

The first Matrix movie was great. I didn't say anything against it. The 2nd and 3rd Matrix movies were really bad, but the first one was a great movie.

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. 

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.

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.
