The best movies you've never seen or the best movies you've ever see?

I've never seen Avatar or Titanic. I heard they were good.

Re: The Best Movies You've Never Seen

I still haven't seen Ben-Hur, The Ten Commandments, or Cleopatra. A lot of people seem to think those walk on water.

Also, I never saw Annie Hall. I didn't appreciate it displacing a certain other film from the Best Picture podium, back when I was in grade school. I still haven't gotten over that.

^I haven't seen Annie Hall either. I still haven't gotten around to seeing LOTR yet.

I might have to hand in my man card for this, but I've never seen any of The Godfather movies.

Re: The Best Movies You've Never Seen

They can be movies you haven't seen, or movies that were really great but chances are others haven't seen them and you would recommend them.

You know I think greatness is in the writing? You can forgive poor execution of great writing, but great execution of poor writing is just - ugh.

Oh here's one, a Christopher Walken flick written by William Gibson:
New Rose Hotel

Re: The Best Movies You've Never Seen

I have never seen Titanic or Avatar although I suspect that I wouldn't actually enjoy them. Everyone else seems to think they're the "best" though...

It didn't displace anything. Annie Hall is a much better movie than Star Wars. And I love Star Wars like a little brother.

And I haven't seen Casablanca. I mean, I've seen Casablanca the city, but I haven't seen Casablanca the movie.

Not everyone! Avatar's not bad but I hate Titanic. When Sean Connery opened the envelope to name it Best Picture at the Oscars, I actually felt physically unwell. Back in '98, republican paramilitaries blew up our local cinema. The only saving grace was that Titanic was showing there at the time.

Me three. I finally got around to seeing LOTR. I couldn't figure out what all the hoopla was about. I wasn't impressed.

Neither have I.

John Ford's The Searchers is high on my must-see list. It's been sitting on my DVR for months now, but I just haven't had time to sit down and check it out. (Too busy keeping up with the latest episodes of my favorite shows.)
