So we all have movies that we are embarrassed to say we haven't seen, for one reason or another. All your friends groan when they find out. You miss out on cultural references. And you've seen Spaceballs 15 times.

What is your list?

1) Godfather
2) Alien
3) It's a Wonderful Life
4) Bad Boys 2

The only one on that list that I've seen is Bad Boys 2. Our division go to watch it the day I graduated boot camp.

I've seen part of It's a Wonderful Life, and have no interest in Alien, but I want to see Godfather, just don't have the time.

The Usual Suspects is OK but overrated.

Citizen Kane is really hard to watch...soooo old.

A Clockwork Orange is awesome, but intense.

Blade Runner is great, but kinda boring too.

The Big Lebowski is a must see. But you have to see it with people, can't watch it alone once and expect to come away with a lot.

If you get a chance to see Lawrence of Arabia on a movie screen do yourself the favor and go. It's the definition of a movie that needs to be seen in theaters.

Of the rest of your list I'd prioritize Big Lebowski, Cool Hand Luke, and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. The rest were all good movies (except maybe Clockwork Orange, even the creator hates it) but those three are the most memorable to me.

I would watch The Big Lebowski with friends and they would be all about it. It was ok...but I'm not going to build a personal philosophy around The Dude.

Avatar is a very pretty, but very straight line story. If you have seen Dances With Wolves, you have seen Avatar, sans blue people.

Transformers was a good popcorn flick. So was the sequel.

Star Trek was interesting. In fact I think it sparked a nerd debate in here over canon and storyline and the "impossibilities" of several plot points...

Oh god, I almost mentioned that when Harry Potter came up. So, so great. Most of it can be found on Youtube now:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HPVhmZodaLA


"Oh my God! Is Harry going to vomit? Of course not! Like a viper, Harry used his voracious mouth as his catcher. He's got that Snitch in his animal belly, and Pop! it is out! They've won! One hundred thousand points for ****ing Gryffindor!

The crowd goes absolutely bazonkers! The champions in red and yellow are the victors, and Harry is spent. The crowd is destroying its throats calling Harry's name. Harry feels right with himself. He's down there, a new god who has found a calling.

He holds up that Snitch and bellows:

'I am a beautiful animal!

'I am a destroyer of worlds!

'I am Harry ****ing Potter!'

And, dear readers, at last the world was quiet."

Fun random fact about Citizen Kane...do you know what Rosebud really is and not just what it is in the movie? It's actually William Randolph Heart's nickname for his girlfriend's uh, well what do you think a rosebud looks like? Citizen Kane is basically a thinly veiled version of Hearst. It's one of my very favorite movies but I love old movies. Cannot help it. I like his use of light and dark contrasting visuals. Just do.

As for films I was apparently supposed to see and don't really give a rats but to see, pretty much all the Harry Potter films.

I did take a lot of crap for not seeing Apocalypse Now, but I finally saw it, though can't say I liked it that much and I couldn't understand anything Marlon Brando said.

I finally saw Unforgiven after being given a ration of grief about it, and I did like that.

Oh wait, I know which one I haven't seen that guys get all weird about, Scarface. I've seen the 1930s version, but never the Pacino. I just can't watch it because it looks like Al Pacino overacting a lot, which I never like (Scent of a Woman, Godfather III - though I like the first 2).

Yeah, I've got no real interest in seeing Avatar either, if I happen to borrow it from someone who has the DVD or something, I'll watch it. I do want to see the others though.

I used to be a big time movie person, but my wife isn't. So my movie watching cut down a little bit when we got married (more guy movies with the guys, so that's ok still), but it really dropped off when my son was born. We brought him home the night of the Az/Pitt Superbowl, so I don't remember much of that game either :)

When Scarface came out I must have seen it 7 times while it was in the theater. We went every week for at least a month taking a differnet friend who hadn't seen it yet. We did the same for Terminator but I was one of the last so I only saw it twice in the theater.

Once I got out of HS I stopped going to see the same movie over and over in the theater.

BTW Scarface was better on the big screen it doesn't translate as well at home on TV.

As a dude you must see Cool Hand Luke. However my personal fave of Paul's is Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. As a chick I get a little hot for The Long Hot Summer which is where he hooked up with his wife to be, Joanne Woodward...a bit corny sometimes, but loved it. Paul Newman is/was so wonderful. Tom Cruise wishes he was that cool, but does not measure up. Though I did enjoy The Color of Money that paired them up, The Hustler was better.

Having said that, there are a lot of Paul Newman movies I still need to see..
Slapshot, The Verdict, The Absence of Malice and probably a few others.

As a dude you must see Cool Hand Luke. However my personal fave of Paul's is Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. As a chick I get a little hot for The Long Hot Summer which is where he hooked up with his wife to be, Joanne Woodward...a bit corny sometimes, but loved it. Paul Newman is/was so wonderful. Tom Cruise wishes he was that cool, but does not measure up. Though I did enjoy The Color of Money that paired them up, The Hustler was better.

Having said that, there are a lot of Paul Newman movies I still need to see..
Slapshot, The Verdict, The Absence of Malice and probably a few others.

Saw ButchCATSDK excellent movie. I forgot westerns. I've seen most of the major westerns because of a project I worked on a while back.

By and large, I enjoy his popcorn action/sci fi flicks:

I, Robot
I am Legend
Enemy of the State
Independence Day

I agree with you on the bolded movies. I, Robot was OK, but I Am Legend was the one of the worst movies I've ever seen...

Oh my gawd, I don't like Tarantino much either. I always thought he was overrated. The only one I will watch more than once strangely is Reservoir Dogs. I walked out the first time from the theater because I was horrified at one point, but eventually saw it all the way through and it is one of the few I think that embodies the spirit of the 50s pulp novels and noir that he "borrows" from so heavily. Then he just gets so full of himself I want to punch him. Also he cannot act and must stop appearing in films, unless it is just so I can watch him die, like Paris Hilton. ;D

I saw it. It was ok so long as you took it as sort of a morality play exploring loyalties of bad people, including a cop. I would be ok with none of his movies, though.

ps, I liked the Jeff Bridges one a whole lot better. I dialed it up one night when the kid was out, and my wife actually enjoyed it.

I liked Wayne in the Searchers (five stars imo) the first Stagecoach and Hondo, and the John Ford cavalry flicks.

I enjoyed the over the top violence of the Kill Bill movies. That was the point, I thought. Revenge flicks are not going to be bloodless.

really... i actually watched Jeff Bridges version before watching the John Wayne version. I always like movies with good ending and a "feel-good" mood to it.

Casablanca
Spellbound
Miracle on 34th Street
Ivanhoe
Cleopatra
Vertigo
Blade Runner
to kill a mockingbird

Casablanca didn't have Bacall. (-:

I may not have seen Spellbound. Or I may have seen it during the two decades I cannot recall.

I can't do holiday movies unless they're parodies like Natl Lampoon Christmas; Bad Santa ..... Olive the Other Reindeer is by the soutpark guys and drew barrymore does the voice over. Funny and very sweet.

I saw Ivanhoe in black and white when I was like 8 on tv at my grandmother's. Loved it. Cleopatra is epic. I liked blade runner. I hate molly coddling Northen Yankee Bastard Liberals telling us we CAINT LIVE FREE, but Harper Lee is a southern girl and she worked for Capote. Mockingbird is probably the best movie I've ever seen. I called my daughter Little Boo until she started asking why.

btw, the movie Capote is really amazing ... but sad. In Cold Blood ruined the man's life.

I recall seeing El Cid on color TV and really liking it. You can't beat Heston for movies like that. If I can actually remember anything that far back, it had to be really good. But I think the historical revisionism got in my way because assuming there were good and bad guys back then, the Christians weren't the good-uns.

With Ivanhoe at least there was the good christian knight fighting to save the chastity of the beautiful Jew ... so he could ravish her for himself. lol

The problem is the movie itself was a betrayal of Michael's character. It's like it was trying to meld the Godfather universe with the popularity of later movies like Wall Street... drawing political equivalences between Mobsters and Executives.

As far as the character goes, it's hard to visualize how Michael goes from the guy at the end of Godfather II to a hobnobbing high-society type, with no credible bridge built in between. It seems like they built it all up to tear it down in the name of teaching a moral lesson, ala Wall Street.

Coppola cashed in, no doubt. But I didn't see a betrayal of Pacino's character. The movie was probably unnecessary, since his wife was gone, and there is only one wife, his son hated him, his wife aborted what would have been his second son, which is a mortal sin in corleone terms, and he killed his only living brother for betrying him.

They took an entire third movie to tell us Michael ended badly. LOL

Nah, just can't see it. At one point Michael talks about how he always just wanted to step the family above the crime and violence and become a legitimate business family, but he couldn't because the more he 'stepped up' or whatever, the more he realized things in business were even more crooked than where he came from.

One... the dude finished the 2nd movie murdering the brother he 'loved' in pretty cold-blooded fashion. Not sure how corporate-style corruption could get much crookeder than that.

And two, more importantly, Michael whining and bitching about it considering the amount of blood on his hands completely changes the man's character from the first two films. Michael didn't bitch about problems. He dealt with them.

Michelle Pfieffer was great. With Pacino, he kinda ruined the movie with his over acting. Good movie, but I don't think it was that great. Pacino in Godfather was awesome.

Battle of Britain.

The film required a large number of period aircraft. In September 1965 producers Harry Saltzman and S. Benjamin Fisz contacted former RAF Bomber Command Group Captain Hamish Mahaddie to find the aircraft and arrange their use.[2] Eventually 100 aircraft were employed, called the "35th largest air force in the world".[3] With Mahaddie's help, the producers located 109 Spitfires in the UK, of which 27 were available although only 12 could be made flyable. Mahaddie negotiated use of six Hawker Hurricanes, of which three were flying.[4] The film helped preserve these aircraft, including a rare Spitfire Mk II which had been a gate guardian at RAF Colerne.[2]

During the actual aerial conflict, all RAF Spitfires were Spitfire Mk I and Mark II variants. However, only one Mk Ia and one Mk IIa (the latter with a Battle of Britain combat record) could be made airworthy, so the producers had to use seven other different marks, all of them built after the battle. To achieve commonality, the production made some modifications to "standardise" the Spitfires, including adding elliptical wingtips, period canopies and other changes. To classic aircraft fans, they became known as "Mark Haddies" (a play on Grp. Capt. Mahaddie's name).[2] A pair of two-seat trainer Spitfires were camera platforms to achieve realistic aerial footage inside the battle scenes.[5] A rare Hawker Hurricane XII had been restored by Canadian Bob Diemert, who flew the aircraft in the film. Eight non-flying Spitfires and two Hurricanes were set dressing, with one Hurricane able to taxi.[6]

....
For the German aircraft, the producers obtained 32 CASA 2.111 twin-engined bombers, a Spanish-built version of the German Heinkel He 111H-16. They also located 27 Hispano Aviación HA-1112 M1L 'Buchon' single-engined fighters, a Spanish version of the German Messerschmitt Bf 109. The Buchons were altered to look more like correct Bf 109Es, adding mock machine guns and cannon, redundant tailplane struts, and removing the rounded wingtips.[8] The Spanish aircraft were powered by British Rolls-Royce Merlin engines, and thus almost all the aircraft used, British and German alike, were Merlin-powered. [N 2] After the film, one HA-1112 was donated to the German Luftwaffenmuseum der Bundeswehr, and converted to a Messerschmitt Bf 109 G-2 variant, depicting the insignias of German ace Gustav Rödel.

It's not so much that it's a good movie. Off the top of my head I'm hard pressed to think of a "good" war movie. They're all political propaganda in one way or another, even MASH. But it was an amazing piece of filmmaking to go out in the late 1960s and find 75 flyable WWII planes. It's not like they had blue screens or computers.

His overacting is exactly why I like Scarface. Gives it a sort of an over the top, campy feeling to go along with the megaviolence. I don't know why it works, it just does.

Only watched Devils Advocate once. Like bendog, I really dislike Keanu and that kills it for me. Have you ever seen Much Ado About Nothing? Putting his "acting" together with Shakespearean master Kenneth Branagh is one of the most jarring movie experiences available.

Heat is good because I also like DeNiro.

Well, if you're playing Satan, I think you have to overact. LOL. I really didn't like him in scent of a woman, and he got nominated. But with Pacino, much if not most of his career is in theatres, not movies. He's played two mobsters in movies, and the result is he's bigger than Cagney. Both the Godfather movies and Scarface are ones you can watch over an over. Cagney was supposed to be better on the stage, and talk about overacting for the camera.

But you can say the same about Hoffman. His character in the Graduate is ... greatness. Marathon Man is also, imo, a classic. Little Big Man. But, he's typecast as the unlikely and unwilling hero. Hoffman also spends more time on Broadway than in Hollywood. Most plays just don't transfer to movies.

Pacino's not a DiCaprio, who seems made for movies, and who can play a variety of physical types for a cameral. You look at Jeff Bridges. The guy created one of the great hollywood roles: the Dude. He takes on John Wayne's role in True Grit without a pause. And then Crazyheart. And he's a guy who never took it too seriously, while Pacino worked his ass off to get into Lee Stasborg's classes. Pacino's ethnic, and he's NYC east coast. Just not Hollywood.

I think a decade later, LOTR has finally supplanted Star Wars as my most favoriteist fantasy universe.

I have missed a ton the last 11 years since I have had kids. Before that, only Fatal Attraction comes to mind.

I love slow, deep movies though, that most younger people (and my Wife) can not handle. I loved Heat, Unforgiven, Lincoln, Usual Suspects type movies. I like movies that do not follow a typical pace or plot.

I also love long series movies like Band of Brothers and the Pacific. The Pacific was so much harder to follow for most people, because there was no single Marine Unit who was at all the pivotal battles they wanted to feature. It made following the characters much harder than most people can take. I really appreciated the depth of it though.

I love war movies so things like Saving Private Ryan, Black Hawk Down, Platoon, Full Metal Jacket, The Thin Red Line, Apocalypse Now, The Hunt for Red October, and even the poorly done Zero Dark Thirty interest me in story lines.

wow so you dont like good movies then I guess
The prestige is another really good movie that Nolan did
I dont hear people talk about that one too much

Very good movie, and using David Bowie as Tesla was an interesting touch. The Illisionist with Edward Norton was made in the same year and is very good also.

Schindlers List is a top 10 movie IMHO. I can not think of any reason NOT to see that movie.

Schindler's list, Roots, Snakes on plane.

Oh, 3 good movies to have sex to while watching. You would think Snakes on the Plane doesn't fit but so many inuendos, it has to be listed.

So who is going to give us the Seinfeld Schindler's list episode?

Schnidlers list is great, but I am assuming most people have seen it

Cabin in the Woods is a movie I really like but is one of those movies where you either love it or hate it

That is another one that few people that I know have seen but I thought was quite enjoyable

I love war movies too but I was so disappointed with Saints & Soldiers - Airborn Creed this year. It wasn't nearly as good as the the 1st. The beach invasion on Saving Private Ryan was the ****. That was sooooo good. Also Enemy At The Gates is classic. I think I've watched that like 15 times now.

All 3 are good but Casino is not even close to being on the same level as the other 2. Those 2 are MUST see movies. I would say Schindler's List is one of the best 10 movies I've ever seen.

Geez, when you compare it to step brothers, that isn't a ringing endorsement. I like Will Ferrell's movies but that one was one of the bottom choices of his. Kicking and Screaming was better than Step Brothers.

Just depends on what you like. I've got like 15 really close friends and we all think it's a frickin funny as hell. But you'll have to watch Dictator to see for yourself. I didn't think the previews were all that good and my friend talked me into renting it and I'm glad I did, was awesome.

Never seen Avatar(felt I'd already seen the movie only it was called Dancing With Wolves). Never saw Inception or any of Chris Nolan's pretentious crap aside from the Batman trilogy. Life of Pi(don't much care to see it) Slumdog Millionaire. Sixth Sense(heard what the ending was then saw no point watching)

Avatar is a movie that everybody says the special affects are amazing and that the rest of it is just ok. They're sorta telling the truth. Only the special affects are so frickin mind blowing good, the rest of it could be in Chinese and you would not care, that's how amazing the visually that movie is. It's not as if the rest of the movie was bad, it's just hard to hold a candle to it when the affects were as good as they were. Trust me, you'll be happy that you saw it, especially if you see it on a bad ass large widescreen with a good sound system. Dances with wolves, eh, decent movie but so very different from Avatar. Inception, I actually enjoyed it more the 2nd time. It was hard to follow it for some reason the 1st time but the 2nd time around I picked up on alot more of the details that are important. Was pretty good. Sixth Sense, I felt it was also decent, nothing special. It seemed better then it really was only because of the ending, you were just surprised a little. It was nothing epic. It was no Silence Of The Lambs or anything. Life of Pi was decent. I didn't feel it was a waste of my time but I wasn't too impressed either. Probably best described as a decent movie 1 time but nothing you will probably watch again. Decent special affects but nothing close to Avatar.

Really thought you were going somewhere different after this sentence. Too bad.

In a somewhat similar vein, I can't freaking wait for this one:

Using a magic show to rob a bank, interesting concept. Hopefully the movie is as good as the trailer suggests.

I agree with most of these. Sixth sense is worth a watch still. It's a lot like fight club. It's a entirely different movie the second time around, maybe better then the first.

Just watched Tucker and Dale VS Evil. I have not laughed like that in quite some time. It's on netflix instawatch.

The British version of Death at a funeral is worth a watch as well.

4 Rooms is a must nobody seems to know. QT Rocks !

Rat Race was great. When he drugged his family :rofl:
