DazDaMan -> RE: Classics you've never seen (16/3/2012 12:54:45 PM)

Casablanca

Citizen Kane

Gone With the Wind

The Wizard of Oz

The French Connection (really should, being a Roy Scheider fan!)

The Godfather Part 2

.....

Quite a few others, I would imagine.




ValJester -> RE: Classics you've never seen (19/3/2012 1:07:53 PM)

The Wild Bunch(anything Peckinpah related for that matter)
The Exorcist
The Terminator
Jules & Jim
Pan's Labyrinth




Rebenectomy -> RE: Classics you've never seen (19/3/2012 2:29:20 PM)

Having watched and really enjoyed Rise... over the Christmas period, I decided to pull my finger out in recent weeks and finally watch the original Planet of the Apes. It was good, but due to it being so ingrained in pop culture and lampooned/paid homage to in so many other things, the ending didn't have all that much of an impact and the film was watched with a sense of knowing throughout.

As for stuff I've yet to see, well I'd say a lot of the classic Westerns, in particular The Dollars Trilogy and The Magnificent Seven. At least in the case of these, I know pretty much nothing about them (Seven, I do know the premise, but not much more), so there'd still be some mystery there.




superdan -> RE: Classics you've never seen (19/3/2012 2:36:47 PM)

Gone With The Wind
Chinatown
Dr Strangelove
The Manchurian Candidate

The first one is an over-long shitfest.
The middle two are superb.
Not seen the last one.




Whistler -> RE: Classics you've never seen (19/3/2012 9:35:23 PM)

The problem I have with Gone With The Wind is that I just can't be bothered setting aside four hours to watch it. I looked forward to Lawrence Of Arabia and Seven Samurai 'cause somehow I knew I would like them, but I have a bad feeling GWTW will just bore the living crap out of me...

Get on it.




Lucky Day -> RE: Classics you've never seen (19/3/2012 10:07:04 PM)

Inception. I was going to watch it a few nights ago but I was tired and thought it might require me to use my brain.

I watched Just go with it instead. I didn't have to use my brain but did feel slighlty used and a little bit dirty by the end of it.

Also..........

A Mighty Wind (ashamed to say)
American History X
Inglourious Basterds
84% of available James Bond films.


This list makes my watching of the aforementioned Just go with it even less acceptable. I hang my head.

Don't you ever mention the awesomeness of Lawrence of Arabia and Seven Samurai in the same breath as that god awful snooze-fest GWTW! [:D]




Shifty Bench -> RE: Classics you've never seen (19/3/2012 11:56:05 PM)

Casablanca
Citizen Kane
The Searchers
The Wild Bunch
The Dollars Trilogy
High Noon
Bringing Up Baby

But I know so much of them.....




Ninjas Lasers Gold -> RE: Classics you've never seen (20/3/2012 12:47:06 AM)

I am making a concerted effort to watch some stuff I've missed but never admitted to this year. I saw A Clockwork Orange and Brazil for the first time last week, and The Godfather for the first time in January. I still haven't seen All About Eve (on my list, I even have it here) I did watch Reflections In A Golden Eye, but then kinda wished I hadn't bothered. Still not seen Citizen Kane all the way through. When they start dancing in the office, it always makes me feel a bit queasy. Other on the horizon include The Odessa File, On Golden Pond and Octopussy (can you tell what letter I decided to start with?)




rigsterblaster -> RE: Classics you've never seen (21/3/2012 9:40:10 AM)

Most Westerns (although I have been trying to rectify this and have now seen A Fistful Of Dollars but have sadly had The Good, The Bad and The Ugly on my shelf for over a year unwatched!)

Also Seven Samurai is sitting at home waiting to be watched too, and Citizen Kane.




sanctumest -> RE: Classics you've never seen (23/3/2012 9:20:57 PM)

I've planning to see some Cagney films (any suggestions welcome!), and a bit of original noir (same here). I tend to use love films streaming to catch things I want to watch but am not sure about buying.

Never seen Citizen Kane, but it's on my list. As are about a hundred others!




Coyleone -> RE: Classics you've never seen (24/3/2012 9:18:48 PM)

Theres so many I could list and I probably am forgetting a ton. These are the ones I plan on watching sooner rather than later...

The Dollars Trilogy
Casablanca
Every Lynch film apart from Mulholland Drive
The Great Escape
12 Angry Men
Vertigo
Psycho
North By Northwest
A Clockwork Orange
The Graduate

Theres a lot more too but my mind has gone blank.

The Roaring Twenties. The best American gangster movie ever made.

I know this probably belongs in the "unpopular opinion " thread but i wouldnt bother, watched the first a few years ago for the first time & thought it "a big so what",

I've had Amadeus in my collection for at least a year now and still haven't got round to watching it. [:(]




Ref -> RE: Classics you've never seen (7/4/2012 4:46:45 PM)

I'm another who's not seen The Godfather Trilogy. I've seen the most iconic clips from them, but not watched the films.




evilzedar -> RE: Classics you've never seen (8/4/2012 11:13:37 PM)

I'm yet another who hasn't seen the Godfather Trilogy.... I also haven't seen Forrest Gump, everyone else seems to have..

The Fugitive and Westworld are both for me 5 star classics and are both well worth your time. 






adamthehorrorfan -> RE: Classics you've never seen (9/7/2013 5:59:07 PM)

I have tried watching some must see films I haven't seen before recently. Although, I still have plenty on my list.

I was trying to watch Jaws recently but I was not really focused, so it will need another watch. That is partly why I can't watch a film at anytime, since my brain has to be ready for concentration that lasts for over one or two hours (depending how long the film is).

I was watching Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho just now and it was brilliant. It has probably become one of my top favourite Horror films of all time.

The must see films I have not seen include:

-The Godfather part 2 and 3 (I have only seen the first Godfather)
- Back to the Future (I know people will kill me for never watching it. Please don't go nuts.)
- Gremlins
- Once Upon a Time in America
- The Deer Hunter
- Mean Streets
- Enter the Dragon
- Memento

My favourite movie of all time. Four hours of perfection. Don't rush it, dig in when you're good and ready.
