    I haven’t seen a bunch of movies I probably should have. I’ve seen bits of some of them like the original The Italian Job. It’s been on TV a bunch, and I’ve probably seen all the scenes out of order by virtue of being near a TV with it on, or absorbed them subconsciously. I’ve just never watched it from start to finish.

    Others, like Dirty Dancing I just left in the corner because they were girly.

    As for Harry Potter, I only needed the first two to figure out JK Rowling was a bag of rubbish - what took you so long?

    Its odd because I’ve seen most of Hitchcock’s films: The Birds, Vertigo, Rear Window, and etc. Its just been a issue of getting around to watching it. Its never on TV, and no one who had a copy offered to screen it.

    I haven't seen a movie where Jesus goes forward in time and becomes a smooth jazz DJ in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

    Well said. She did get rejected by almost a dozen publishers.

    But have you seen the sequel, where he becomes an MC, rapping New Testament bars over sick horns playing in the Mixolydian mode?

    Great film! Saw it for first time last year. It has such depth. Its not about the dancing, its about the characters, and dancing connects their lives.
    Patrick Swayze did the jump at the end with a fractures or broken leg, you can seem him wince a little.

    Of these couple of polls of the 100 best-reviewed movies evvah, I've seen only 33 of the reviewers poll, and only 35 of the directors poll. So still a ways to go. But slowly getting there--I'm in no hurry.

    A classic. Back when Tom Cruise used to be an actor.

    Brad Pitt seemed good too. It also features a young Kirsten Dunst.

    The zombie apocalypse genre is badly underrepresented on those lists of all time greatest films.

    I haven’t seen Battleship Potemkin but want to.

    I am a terrible movie watcher. I often have to watch them in segments. Movies are too ****ing long.

    Off the top of my head....Never saw Gone with the Wind. Any movie with John Wayne in it. A Clockwork Orange.

    I saw Scarface finally this past January. It was...over rated.
