Another friend of mine (who has three kids, btw), has never seen The Sound of Music. Wtf? Who hasn't seen TSOM?

Ah, but for myself, I have never watched The Godfather (I tried, but gangster movies bore me to death) and I found Pulp Fiction to be obnoxious and boring, as well (though I don't think PF is the same level as TG), so I have never watched it beginning to end.

Which movies have you never seen that might surprise?
Or someone you know hasn't seen something that defines a generation (and they are that generation) or that is iconic?

When these old threads re-surface, I have no idea if I'd replied before, but I'm struck by the dismissal of gangster films as "boring." That seems insane to me. There are great, great gangster films, ranging from the early ones in the 1930s, to the marvelous mid-century French ones.

Maybe the problem is that if you're watching them at home, you're too prone to be dismissive.
