Oh, these are movies people lie about having seen not about not having seen.

I've seen them all. As noted most are considered classics for one reason or another.
You missed
"Attack of the Killer Tomatoes"
I think it was on an Elvira Mistress of the Dark saturday night special.... (lol)

I think Ive seen or parts of seen all of them except maybe Goodfellas...

Youll be glad to hear I have now got a copy of The Godfather and I will be viewing it on my next day off. I will report back.

I actually felt bad about being so adamant that I wasn't interested. So I went home and found it on PPV for $2.99.

It was weird. Better story line than I thought, but dragged in a few places. Sort of uneven as far as pace goes. Rutger Hauer was pretty good in it.

I'm still not a big fan, but will admit it was a bit better than I expected.

Only seen Casablanca (which is spectacular btw) out of these 10 lol. Not terribly interested in them tbh, seem to be a bunch of typical macho films which all "guys" should have watched or they are aliens from the planet of Ricky Martin.

Oddly, Casablanca is the only one on that list I haven't seen, and it's probably the most famous.

I have DVDs for Goodfellas and 2001, so I've watched those pictures multiple times.

People want to appear cultured. It's even worse with books. Go to any online dating site and on every other profile you'll see a collection of literary classics and advanced scientific reads listed under, "favorite books". It's a huge bummer when you want to actually talk about one of them.

I'm amazed Citizen Kane wasn't on the list, to be honest.

I've seen every movie (and I mean every single movie ever made)...at least twice


two of these 10 listed also have director's cuts that even exceed the theatrical releases


Apocalypse Now Redux : if for no other reason then to see Captain Willard steal Col Kilgore's surfboard...and Willard's men getting jiggy with the Bunnies

Blade Runner (I think there might even be 3 or 4 of these)

Now THAT was a pretty great movie that very few people I have spoken with have ever seen.

Pretty bloody stupid to lie about seeing something!! I dont do that.... If I dont like something,I SPEAK UP ABOUT IT!! (I dont lie to make others happy,etc)


Gee, that's kind of interesting.


I agree, it's pointless to lie, especially because you can so easily get caught. On the other hand, if you freely admit to not having seen a movie, the other person will probably be delighted to tell you about it.


I can't help noticing that most of those are "guy" films. I wonder if that means that men lie more often than women?


Myself, I've seen eight of them. Or maybe eight and a half. (No pun intended.)
