I have never seen THE LORD OF THE RING films, I don't have anything against them, I just haven't gotten around to them.

Angry Birds.



Henry, LotR is well worth seeing if you have a spare few days! In theory you should probably watch The Hobbit films first but my advice would be not to bother.

Dr. No (1962)
Solo: A Star Wars Story(2018)
Many of the current superhero movies (though I've seen some... it's not that I have anything against superhero movies, I don't, but there's just so many of them... :-) )

I'm actually very reluctant to reveal the titles of the hundreds of classic movies I haven't seen. I feel less embarrassed about saying I haven't seen any Marvel films than I do about saying I haven't seen any David Lean films for example. I shall wait to see how this thread evolves, and if anyone looks like being more of a nincompoop than me, I may spill the beans (little by little, one bean at a time).

What a nincompoop! Thanks Jeh, you've given me the push I needed to start my list. One thing though - could you put a few more "classic" films on the list, and a few foreign ones that the experts tell us we must see before we die?

Or (question for Henry) are we only talking "big" as in Hollywood blockbusters?

I've never seen ANY film that's in black and white, apart from those bits in The Wizard Of Oz.

Yeah they were terrible. I have a theory that The Fellowship is actually the only decent one worth watching.

Haha! Didn't take long for this thread to go from "Big Films You Haven't Seen" to, "That Big Film Was Garbage".

Hi Graham! By big I mean popular well known films, it doesn't matter if it's a Hollywood blockbuster or not.smile

Its easier for me to generalize. I haven't seen many pre 1970's films that weren't Sci Fi/Fantasy/Monster/Comedy related.

I've seen very few B&W films. I grew up when "In Living Color" was all the rage. So as a child I balked at B&W films unless there was a monster in them. Some classic films Ive never seen include, Its a Wonderful Life, Casablanca, Gone With the Wind. (I know the last one was in color)

Ive seen very few musicals other than West Side Story and Wizard of Oz.

Post 70's I haven't seen many of the "adult" films, like Dirty Harry, Rocky, Godfather, Exorcist, The Omen.

Post 2000's I haven't seen any of the Harry Potter films, only the first Hunger Game film, or most of the CGI animated films not by Disney. I have yet been able to sit all the way thru Toy Story or Finding Nemo.

Directors I just don't gravitate to like Quentin Tarantino. Haven't seen the majority of his films like Kill Bill.

Righto, henry... Popular well-known films. So I can thankfully not mention any of the arthouse classics which I've "pretended" to have seen. Okay, to start MY ball rolling -

None of the DIE HARDs
None of the LETHAL WEAPONs
None of the BOURNEs

I'll be back.

Independence Day (thank goodness!), Schindler's List, and too many sequels I wish I hadn't.

I've seen EVERY film that Jehannum hasn't.
Do I win a prize?

Oh, and Raging Bull and Schindler's List were b&w too wink

Fellowship actually had some genuine moments of horror that I wished they'd continued in the other two--they became more like soap operas with good special F/X

Regarding the topic:

I've only seen one of the Harry Potters and it was the second part of the two part-er so it made 0% sense

Never seen Godfather 2 or 3, only saw 1 in the edited for TCM version with the terrible overdubbing of the cursing

Never seen Schindler's List and not sure I particularly want to though I know I probably should at least once

Never seen Gone With The Wind, The Ten Commandments, Spartacus, Ben-Hur, or Lawrence of Arabia, Deerhunter (did start this one but couldn't get over how those mountains look nothing like Appalachia), One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, West Side Story, or Singing in the Rain

Not that I didn't want to, just haven't found the time.

There are so many more...I've not seen more movies than I have seen big grin

So now TCM is censoring movies? I guess I don't miss it nearly as much as I thought I did.
