Default Great movies you've never seen

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.

Never seen any Star Wars movies or any of the Lord of the Rings/Harry Potter movies... I am not embarrassed to say it though.

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.

You've got to see the original Star Wars trilogy at some point. I mean, they basically spawned a culture.

No biggie on the Harry Potter movies. But not seeing Star Wars? I can't understand that one. LOTR are good movies and worth watching.

I have nothing against Star Wars I just don't have a very long attention span. It is hard for me to sit still for two hours to watch a movie.

I don't sit still through a Broncos game. I am pacing back and forth or jumping up and down most of the time.

I have never seen any of the Star Trek movies. None of them. Whether or not one considers them to be great is strictly up to the individual.

My plan was to rent them all and watch them in succession one weekend when I was down with the flu or something.

Forgive me Khan!

Only if you forgive me for loving Journey.

I have to say if there is a classic, critically acclaimed movie I've probably seen it.

One of those 4 movies doesn't fit.

Never got around to watching Citizen Kane, and I didn't see Gran Torino.

Big Lebowski is the one that I've been missing

A lot of movies in the last year and a half (since my son was born):
Star Trek, Transformers, Avatard, and a few others probably
