    how about this: I have not seen Star Wars, full stop. :) It's on the to do list, after about a couple of dozen things such as catch up with all the Trek books. :D

    Don't worry, Rosalind, I think I have committed a worse crime:

    Not seeing Titanic. :eek: ;)

    ^ If it weren't for a friend who wanted to see it for a second time, I wouldn't've seen Titanic either. OTOH, this is a Trek board, and to tell people that you're a major Trek fan but have not seen SW? :)

    Hey, it's only because I'm so devoted to Star Trek that I haven't yet made time to watch Star Wars! :p

    This will kill some people: I haven't seen Fight Club yet.

    Me neither. Nor would I ever want to.

    I felt the same way-- until I actually saw Fight Club. The advertisements made it seem like a generic testosterone injected beat-em-up movie, but in the end it wasn't that at all. It was a serious mind-f**k ala "The Game".

    I've heard about the movie, and it sounds interesting, but I haven't got around to watching it yet. Not sure if I ever will or not.

    I'm aware of the twist ending and all that. It is interesting, although it still wouldn't make me anything even remotely interested in watching it. I have never been in a fight in my life, nor would I ever want to, and I don't buy into that "get into a fight to prove you're alive" crap. Hey, f*ck you Tyler Durden, I don't have to prove a damn thing!

    Besides, I don't like needless destruction like the kinds of things that Project Mayhem did. I'm not an anarchist...

    There is nothing wrong with not seeing the SW movies. But, I rather see any of the SW movies over Titanic again.

    Likewise. Yet. Hopefully sometime soon I shall. *Oh I am evil* Thankfully can't see my LJ. *Laughs* I have a huge list of films I haven't seen ... including ... Blade Runner and Sin City.

    Ask Bubba D. to show you his "Pennington as HST" sample chapter sometime. It's hilarious. :)

    Hunter S. Thompson?
    By the way I haven't seen Fight Club either, because I thought the whole thing was just a bunch of guys beating the crap out of each other. But, now that I know there's more to it I'm a little more interested. I'm finally starting to see some of the modern classics like Shindler's List and English Patient, both of which I finally saw last year. And I have seen Titanic and all six Star Wars movies.
