I have seen them all except 'This Is Spinal Tap.' Some of them, I have seen many times over a long period of many years. I must have seen 'Casablanca' sometime in the 60s on television. In 1971, I saw it again in a cinema in London. It was part of a season of Bogart films.

I saw 'The Godfather' on release in a cinema. I finished with the current squeeze at the time, because she wouldn't stop gabbing during the movie!!.......

In fact, I saw all of them in a cinema!! I came out after seeing 'Blade Runner' just amazed by this great movie.

'The Great Escape' I saw as a kid of about ten years old. Wow, I ran all the way home to tell my dad just how good it was.

'Apocalypse Now' I wasn't sure of on the first viewing. I went again the day after, and it grew on me.

'2001' I was 15 years old, and again, didn't know what to make of it on first viewing. I took one of my first girlfriends to see that one......... she didn't like it, and kept telling me so all through the movie. She had to go as well.

'Taxi Driver' and 'Goodfellas' wow just wow right from first viewing. I have seen every one of Martin Scorsese's movies in a cinema. I took my dad to see 'Raging Bull' at a movie house, and he loved it as much as I did.

I've seen all the titles listed, some of them several times, except 2001 Space Odyssey, it is a long film and I fell asleep for parts of it.

People who haven't seen THE GODFATHER shouldn't be allowed to watch movies. Their movie-watching licenses should be revoked.
