I've seen a lot of films. A lot a lot. Growing up, I never really watched TV until middle school, and even then it was only to watch a couple of shows a week (namely, Buffy, Friends, and occasionally Dawson's Creek, before I realized how lame everyone on that show was).
But we probably rented about two or three - sometimes more - movies a week. Yes, there was that period where on days that my brother got to choose he rented Return of the Jedi over and over and over again. And I went through a period when I rented almost exclusively Shirly Temple movies (hey, I was like eight!). But we mostly mixed it up quite a bit, with my mom throwing in her occasional choice of foreign films.
However, there remain a good deal of films that I have never seen, and a lot of these happen to be famous movies that everyone has seen, except me apparently. So here they are. Please feel free to use the comments section to both ridicule me and make suggestions of movies you think I should see, or to tell me which of the following I should commit to seeing first.
Top Fifteen Famous Movies I Have (Shamefully?) Never Seen
The Shawshank Redemption
Die Hard (including all of the sequels)
Terminator (including all of the sequels)
The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
It's a Wonderful Life
The Last Samurai
Jaws (including all of the sequels)
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
The only thing I can say about this list - aside from how random it is - is that it shows that apparently I don't like Tom Cruise very much, which I don't. I hate him actually. Other than that, I guess I just missed out on a few movies that came out during my life, which I never got around to seeing, and those that came out before my time I never bothered to rent.
What are your favorite movies?
Maybe next time I'll my top ten favorite movies of all time, and give you guys some suggestions :)
p.s. Happy Summer Solstice, Everyone!
