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?
I've never seen any of these movies.

made in the last ten years or so, is that when you have seen them once, thats
enough. With the films of the thirties and forties you can go back and watch them
over and over again. I don't know why, it's just so. I have been lucky enough in
my lifetime to meet three old stars, James Stewart, Ingrid Bergman and Mickey
Rooney. Each of them great artists in their own way. Talking to each of them, I
realised how much film meant to them and to me.
I always think it's funny when someone tells me about a "really old" movie and it turns out to be from the 80s.

It's disappointing, but I've realized that if someone tells me they're not into classic film, they probably never will be. It's sad to think they've just been forgotten.

I realize the it's type casting , I'm an old guy.
But I liked it when the star was the good guy all the time, in every movie he was in.
When the good guy star is now the bad guy, it's no longer fun any more.
When John Travolta went dark side so did his popularity.
I like the modern space movies and action movies ,but I also like some of the older black and white movies as well.
John Wane, Douglass Farbanks, Bazel Rathbone, and so on.
There are too many movies to mention ,my friends have never seen , but then my library has several thousand VHS and DVDs .
I don't let the critics decide for me , I like to see for my self if the trailer is half way decent.
Often I have often witnessed, that they were wrong about the story, and the plot .
So they are not to be believed.
EVER.
