10 Movies I’ve Never Seen

10

'Movie Gallery, Miles City' photo (c) 2008, David Schott - license: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.0/In case you missed it, I took Monday off.  I had it off work, so I took it off here.  Actually, I forgot, but that can be our little secret.  But I wanted to share with you some movies that I have never seen.  You will probably judge me after this list, but that’s okay.  I have every intention of watching some of them and no intention of watching others, but either way, I still haven’t seen them as of today.

1.  A Few Good Men.  I’ve always wanted to see this one, but just never found the time or always found something I wanted to watch instead.  This one is on my list to watch for 2013.

2.  Schindler’s List.  This is probably where you’ll judge me, but I absolutely hate to watch a movie that I KNOW will upset me.  When I watch a movie, I don’t do it for education or to be enlightened.  I want it to be for fun.  This one does not strike me as such.  However, it is on my 2013 list.  It keeps coming up too often in my life lately to not give it a try.

3.  Jaws.  I don’t like sharks, and I don’t like to be scared.  So why in the world would I watch a movie about a shark killing people?  Even if it is a classic…

4.  The Shawshank Redemption.  I honestly don’t know what this one is really about except the blurbs I read on IMDB looking for movies that I should have seen by now.  This one is in several top 10s.  May be worth a shot, I guess.

5.  It’s A Wonderful Life.  Yes, really.  I’ve seen bits and pieces over the years, but have never seen the whole show.  I have a feeling it will be one of those movies that everyone builds up so much that once I finally see it, I’ll not enjoy it near as much.  Kind of like The Christmas Story, which I just watched for the first time this Christmas season.

6.  Dances With Wolves.  Don’t really know why I’ve never watched this one, but my friend mentioned it the other day when I realized I still have never seen it.  Oh, well.

7.  Saving Private Ryan.  I usually like war movies.  This one just never seemed to hit my radar.

8.  The Shining.  Pardon my language, but there is no way in hell I will ever watch this movie.  People who like and regularly watch scary or creepy movies say this one still creeps them out.  I would have to move in with friends if I watched it, I’m sure.

9.  Toy Story…any of them.  Again, bits and pieces over the years, but have never sat down to watch them all the way through.  They’ve been recorded on my DVR for months, so maybe one of these days…

10.  Die Hard.  Again, no real reason why, just haven’t watched it.  I’d probably really like it, though.

So are you judging me now?  That’s all right.  I’m okay with it.

What are some popular movies that you have never seen?

    I have not seen 5 of the movies on your list, so there is no way I’ll be judging you!

    I got funny looks one time when I said I had never seen Chitty-Chitty Bang-Bang. I don’t have a big desire to see it, either. So there. 😉

    • That makes me sad that you haven’t seen it. Dick Van Dyke is one of my favorites!! But, yeah, when I mention a few of these, people just look at me like I’m an idiot! 🙂

  • One-I also have not seen Schindler’s List. Not because of any reason in particular. It’s getting to a point now where it is ridiculous that I haven’t seen it given the fact that I call myself a movie buff.

    Two- Jaws may be a “classic,” but it kind of sucks. Don’t worry about it. It is not essential.

    Three- The Shawshank Redemption IS essential. Rent it. Do not watch the TV version for your first viewing. It is a great, triumphant movie.

    4-Also, Toy Story…all three are freaking awesome. Get Trevor and plant yourself in and watch em. Funny and a lot of heart.

    • You should come over and watch Schindler’s List with me. But you can’t make fun of me when I start crying…

      • Crying at Schindler’s List: acceptable. Crying at a Hallmark movie: unacceptable.

      • I don’t know that Hallmark has ever made me cry. Now the Folgers Christmas commercials on the other hand…

  • well there is NO comparison between It’s a wonderful life and Christmas Story. I do not care for Christmas Story but I LOVE it’s a wonderful life! Just sayin’ 🙂

    • Oh, I wasn’t comparing the two. I was just meaning how people talk up a movie and then I watch it and am disappointed. Like with The Christmas Story.

  • I,too, have not seen Schindler’s list for basically the same reason as you. I know I should watch it but I don’t want to. I agree with Herschel that Shawshank redemption and the Toy Story movies are essential! It’s a Wonderful Life is an annual watch for me.

    • My brother has a copy of Shawshank, I believe. That may be on my summer watch list!
