-= Classic Films You've Never Seen =-

What classics have you never seen?

Someone got onto me for not having seen Top Gun. Just never seen it. Off the top of my head I've also never seen American Graffiti. I've meant to, just haven't gotten around to it.

I've seen many of Alfred Hitchcock's films, but not Rebecca. Let's see, quick Google search...

Top Gun
Rebecca
American Graffiti
Groundhog Day
Dazed and Confused
The Breakfast Club
(been meaning to)
Footloose (been meaning to)
A Christmas Story (don't want to)
Raging Bull (my parents turned it off shortly after starting it when I was younger, heh)
Dirty Dancing
Coming to America
Caddyshack

Personally I feel most of those movies you've listed are more "iconic" to their era or genre rather than classics.

I'd say Christmas Story & Raging Bull could be considered classics.

Well, iconic, classic... whatever. Famous movies that made a mark or have stood the test of time somehow.

Well Goddamn, sir.

Schindler's List is kind of a snoozefest, in my opinion. But you definitely should see the other two.

I too haven't seen Forrest Gump and Saving Private Ryan. That was intentional though, I read the synopsis and movies of that genre aren't my type.

I was forced to watch Schindler's List for a film-related course during my time at university. That movie was a chore to sit through.

That's bad luck, my friend.

My luck was better...

I took a history of television class in college and we watched Quiz Show...



And I got to watch Psycho for an English class in college, but had to write a stressfull paper on it. So that was the downside.

Funnily enough, the course I had to watch it for was History of Cinema. And then had to do an 80 odd page reading on why it was apparently the greatest movie ever, which included how Oprah Winfrey claimed simply watching the film made her a better person.

But yeah, you definitely got the better end of the stick... jerk.

Ugh, honestly I think The Pianist is a better WWII Nazis-killing-Jews movie. It will make you a better person, too.

And then of course there's Inglourious Basterds which is a Jews-killing-Nazis movie... haha laughing out loud

It's been so long since I've seen any of them, but I do remember the first one being truly great. But you have to watch it with subtitles to really follow it. They're definitely films worth seeing, and I've been meaning to watch them again actually, show them to my wife, but probably won't get around to it anytime soon.
