i agree, i saw braveheart when i was 18 and i remembered saying to my GF at the time: "maybe it's cuz i'm a whopper with cheese (half italian, half dutch) that i really don't give a shit about these scots and their plight, or maybe this movie is just overrated and boring". :P

but seriously, beyond the testosterone i don't really get why that movie is anything special.

and GT as a third party reader, your response was equally light in it's jab despite him calling you out. i'dda said something similiar or worse lol.
the one last hit that spent you...

I haven't seen Bourne 2 or 3. I got as far as renting the first waaaay too late, but never gotten around to the sequels, even though I know they're the ones that matter.

And I don't think any Jason Stratham films are considered required viewing. It's far more embarrassing to say I've seen Crank.

Some other "classics" I've missed, or at least the ones I'm "embarrassed" about not having seen:
Ben-Hur
Spartacus
The Big Sleep
Blade Runner
Lawrence of Arabia
On The Waterfront
To Kill A Mockingbird
Touch Of Evil
12 Angry Men
The French Connection
The Red Balloon
Alfie
All The President's Men
The Apartment
He held on. The dolphin and all the rest of its pod turned and swam out to sea, and still he held on. This is it, he thought. Then he remembered that they were air-breathers too. It was going to be all right.

This reminds me of a quote appropriate for everyone here...

Never seen Mulholland Dr. Braveheart, Shawshank, American Beauty, Seven Samurai, City of God, The Pianist

I've only seen the beginning of Saving Private Ryan.

I've owned the DVD's of Sunset Blvd. Cinema Paridiso, and Irreversible for years and have never watched them.

I've only seen two Hitchcock (North by Northwest and Psycho)

I fell asleep half an hour into the only two Elia Kazan movies I've attempted to watch (On the Waterfront [twice], and East of Eden)

The beginning of SPR is the part to watch. Then it turns into a standard movie.

All those three movies you have unopened in your shelf are very good, specially Cinema Paradiso. But all of them are like , first class.

I haven't seen East of Eden, but On the Waterfront...well, it was ok, I think it feels "new" for the period it was made it, and Brando is amazing, but the Brando performance I find electric is in A Streetcar Named Desire.

Well ... you should try to see them when you're not tired then.

God damn, this thread has been a long time coming.

I just finished reading it, but I have to go now, my list will be quite embarrassing.

I've never see a single movie by Pedro Almodovar

Because i'm glad no one has mentioned it.

this is tied with 2001 for my fav movie of all time. it heavily inspired the script i'm writing now.

whoever hasn't seen this, go give yourself the amazing pleasure.

yeah any time anyone asks me the obligatory "What's your favorite movie" i generally go for Network. I think if you're on this board (pete!) and you haven't seen this... just stop posting right now.

Network is a great movie, I remember watching it on a really beautiful summer afternoon when I was 17... my friends were probably throwing a football on the beach, with really hot girls in bikini beside them laughing and splashing water around. Maybe they even rubbed some oil on these girls back.

This makes me like the film less.
