I said the first one was the best one.
As someone who totally anthropomorphized her toys (and still does with some stuff), I should have been more weepy during the third, but mostly it was just ok.

To me, Star Wars isn't even about the sci fi. It's simply iconic.
I saw the original Star Wars movie, but neither of the sequels. You know, I don't do sci fi. I didn't see any of the Lord of the Rings movies or any of the Harry Potter movies either. I have seen all of the Twilight movies, so far, but only so that my 57-year-old sister wouldn't have to go alone.

I normally don't like boxing movies but...I have seen all Rocky sequels. Not only that...I've watched them over and over again.
Come to think of it...I have also watched all of "Rambo." Aah...Stallone magnetism!

Rocky is interesting to me bc Stallone supposedly wrote the film...then only allowed it to be made if he could be in it. Then it won an academy award for best picture the year I was born.

I am always astonished by the number of people I know who have never seen "Gone With the Wind".

Not only is on TCM all the time (so it's easy access), it is simply one of the best films ever made.

I have no intention of ever seeing these classic and highly regarded films:

Forest Gump
The Deer Hunter
A Clockwork Orange
Schindler's List
Born on the Fourth of July
Taxi Driver
The Grapes of Wrath
Raging Bull
Old Yeller
Citizen Kane

The subject matter in each either makes me uncomfortable or is just not my style, since I view movie-watching as mostly a means to an end: escapism without having a message shoved down my throat or watching the credits roll feeling so depressed I have to drown my sorrows with a whole bottle of good Merlot.

I'm the equivalent of a cinematic ignoramus, indeed.
