Uh before I post my three (or rather come up with them in my head cause I am too old to know a damned thing anymore), I just wanted to tell you that I just saw Saving Private Ryan and It’s A Wonderful Life for the first time in 2007…so uh yeah, you are not alone on those.

Here are mine:

1. Like you, I have never seen any of The Godfather movies. I don’t care who it enrages. Fuck that.

2. The English Patient. I have no idea how I skipped this since romantic stuff makes me swoony but somehow, I have!

3. Labyrinth: Everybody quotes and talks about this movie as if it were the second, third or fouth coming and I smile and laugh as if I know what they mean. I don’t. I’ve never seen this.

4. Casablanca: Again, I pretend to have seen it and could quote half of the movie verbatim but seriously? It bores me.

Well that’s four….look at that, bonus Hilly! I never could follow the rules :).

Aside from most of the ones you’ve mentioned already…

1 – Fletch – classic comedy from our youthful years – quoted ALL the time. Never seen it. No good reason, just never gotten around to it really. That I can’t really stand Chevy Chase. Certainly open to seeing it though.

2 – What’s that movie with the golfing and the gophers? Caddyshack. See #1

3 – Something About Mary. Don’t really like Cameron Diaz. Not a big fan of spooge in hair jokes and gross out comedy.

4 – The complete series of Everybody Loves Raymond on DVD. Patricia Heaton – blech. Oh wait, not a movie.

Always been curious about “Hudson Hawk”. Bruce Willis, art crimes, singing? What’s not to want to see there? I think I see a movie night in our future.

And how is it that we’ve been together this long and we’ve never taken you to see RHPS? Even my dad went with us one night!

I’m sure I’ll think of some others as I read other comments…

Oh my gosh Billy Madison was my absolute favorite movie in the 90s. Granted, I was ten. But still funny today!

I’ve seen pretty much everything I’ve wanted to see. I’ve tried to watch the first star wars lots of times and fallen asleep every single time, so I’ve never watched any of the other five either. This tends to shock people. I have no desire at all.

I’ve not seen soooo much stuff. I’m so not a movie person.

Pirates 2 and 3 – We have them, but I’ve only seen 1. I just got too ADD to sit through 2 more movies with Johnny Depp in them I guess.

The Shining – Sorry. Jack skeeves me out just seeing him on the red carpet, let alone in a movie where he’s running around saying “Here’s Johnny!”

Brokeback Mountain – Not sure why I didn’t see this. I like everyone who is in it and I like hot boy love. I think it was too deep for me. Too much talkin’ and thinkin’.

I’m hopeless, I’ve never seen whatever movie it is that everyone is talking about at the time.
However….drooling over the Rocky Horror lips! Tim Curry in drag *swoon* (Yeah I may have watched that a few…million…times!)

I must be a dork of movie dorks.. I’ve seen all of those at least 2x or more…

AND i used to have a pirated VHS tape of RHPS, remember when a pirated tape was someone who snuck a video camera into the theatre and took a video of the movie? It was like that, I think I still have it.. here’s to 20+ year old VHS…

I haven’t seen Iron Man yet. But I don’t go to theaters, I wait for DVD

Netflix is my savior to seeing movies I haven’t seen yet. and TV Shows on DVD….it’s the reason I have seen most of the movies I have….best $20 a month I could possibly spend!

and BYW, I was all excited thinking that the results would be here today, only to find out I had no competition AND you extended the deadline?? Would telling you I am very sick make you appoint me winner by default? cause I am….very sick that is…and not just in the head.

I refuse to enter contests because I have this pesky habit of winning.

I won Dave2’s contest by mistake. I’m lucky I didn’t win the grand prize.

I love Kevin Smith platonically. The man’s a genius. Dawg and I were supposed to go to Jersey on Friday night of TequilaCon to see Kevin Smith do one of his 7-hour talking sessions, but he had to cancel because of his movie schedule. I was pretty bummed about that.

I love John Cusack not-so-platonically. The man is yum.

I only saw “It’s a Wonderful Life” for the first time this year. I’m glad I waited.

I have not yet been able to sit through “The Big Lebowski” or “Office Space” because I always have to deal with something else. Every single time. But I’ve probably seen both movies entirely in bits and pieces.

No list, I just wanted to drop a line and say I entered the picture-naming contest…and taunt anyone who hasn’t!

That’s right. Fear my wrath.

Hilly: Labyrinth is certainly one on my list as well. Apparently David Bowie + muppets = hit. Who knew? Certainly not I — as I haven’t seen it.

socKs: I still have no great desire to see Caddyshack, but I suppose we can count it as a rite of passage. And yes, your dad is far cooler than I will ever be…

Amanda: I’m relieved that I’m not the only one who just simply doesn’t get mesmorized by Star Wars…

Winter: Yes! Another film trilogy I forgot! “Pirates of the Carribean” — never watched any of them. Never had the desire. Didn’t even like the anamatronic Disney ride…

Penelope: Curiously, the memory of Tim Curry I will always go to is the one of him as the butler in “Clue.” I guess that will change once I see RHPS in the theater…

bubblewench: Ah, yes. Back in the days when movie theater employees didn’t have night-vision goggles to bust the folks making recordings of movies. VHS bootlegs are still bad-ass. :)

Cissa: I’m such a freak that I still do not and never have subscribed to NetFlix! Odd, hmm?

As for the deadline extension — I still appreciate you being the first one to enter the contest. And I shall reward you for it. Some day soon. You have my word.

Poppy: Kevin is wonderful. I’d love to see him live doing his schtick (albeit his two 2-DVD speaking engagement sets have been great). My go-to costume is still the long overcoat and the Mooby hat backwards. (And now I don’t need the fake hair!)

Finn: I hope you get the chance to treat yourself to both of those films in one sitting. As for me — I don’t think I’ve ever seen “Road House” in one contiguous chunk…

Epiphany: Aiiieee! Wrath!

LibraGirl: I wish I had never seen Titanic… Consider yourself lucky. :)

I had to stop by… and will probably try to regularly. I don’t want to say I’m glad you’ve moved here or anything… but at least now we’ll get more priceless shiny originals that were rare on mindsay.

As for this list… a couple years ago, I also hadn’t seen the first two Godfather movies… and yes, they are two of the best movies I’ve ever seen. I also haven’t seen It’s A Wonderful Life, which is bad of me, since it has probably played 334477447 times on TV since I was born. I haven’t seen Rocky Horror Picture Show or True Romance… I only feel bad about one of those things (not RHPS, to clarify… haha.) Nor have I seen Monster’s Ball… but I don’t think anyone should feel bad about that.

So we have a couple things in common. Now take some time off and watch some Godfather. You’ll never regret the 3490534 hours it takes.

I have seen every movie on your list, and except for RHPS and LOTR, you aren’t missing a thing. Didn’t like any of them enough to ever watch a second time. I thought the Godfather saga was overlong, boring and clunky. You want a good mafia movie? See GoodFellas. It’s A Wonderful Life was way to schmaltzy for me. I LOVE A Christmas Story, however. And Saving Private Ryan was the most overhyped napfest of all time.

Here are my glaring omissions:

The Day The Earth Stood Still. I’m a hardcore sci-fi fan, but somehow have never seen this classic.

Chronicles Of Narnia. ZERO interest. Lions do not talk.

The Big Lebowski. People keep telling me I’ll LOVE this movie. I’ve tried to watch it three times, but never get past the first 15 minutes.
