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)
I think people lie about seeing movies in the fast and furious series. They don't want to admit to enjoying preposterous action movies.

My mom made me watch The Godfather. I saw Casablanca in high school for a class.

I probably should watch This is Spinal Tap since one of my fave movies is Fear of a Black Hat which is supposed to be spinal tap for gangsta rap.

My list, although I do think its weird people would lie about what movies they've seen.

1. The Godfather - have seen a few times, Godfather 2 was better. I even sat through Godfather 3, just for completion.
2. Casablanca - have seen all or part too many times to count
3. Taxi Driver - watched once long ago, good but wouldn't re-watch
4. 2001: A Space Odyssey- have seen a few times, but with a long gap until when I watched recently with my 12 year old. It was painful, honestly. SOOOOOOO slow moving as to be almost unwatchable.
5. Reservoir Dogs - nope, I don't do Tarantino
6. This Is Spinal Tap - haven't seen it in years but remember it being very funny. I'll need to read some reviews to figure out age appropriateness as I would re-watch with the kiddo
7. Apocalypse Now - years ago, wouldn't re-watch but still worth seeing at least once.
8. Goodfellas - saw it years ago, thought it was excellent but would be interesting to rewatch and see if I felt the same way now
9. Blade Runner - really liked it back in the day. Kiddo is a little too young at this point, but something I'll watch with him in another couple of years.
10. The Great Escape - never saw it. No particular reason, but I'm not particularly inclined to seek it out.

Funny, I've seen all of those movies - and except for 7, all several times - and that's no lie.

But you have to see 1 and 2. Easily two of the finest American movies ever made. Flawless masterpieces.
Part three is only worth watching to see two things...

  1. The confession scene.
  2. The "she got shot" scene.
The rest is garbage.
