My husband made a Short Circuit reference and  was disturbed when I didn't get it. He was further appalled when I told him I'd never seen the movie. I swear he contemplated divorce. Are there any "classic" movies that you haven't seen

Crossroads with Ralph Macchio, or Crossroads with the best actress of all time, twitney spears?

Either one, I'd say yawn...  sleep

Tell your husband you'll watch a Steve Guttenberg movie when Guttenberg makes one worth watching.  Please note, movies starring Steve Guttenberg are not worth watching.

I finally saw Citizen Kane last year and Casablanca last year.  I still have the Unforgiven DVD that I've been meaning to watch.  Except for North by Northwest I've not seen any Hitchcock movies.

The Birds is really good, my favourite Hitchcock movie. I hated the ending the first time I saw it, but the more time passes, the more I like it.

we need a thread of classic movies you wish you hadn't seen...citizen kane is quite possibly (for me) one of the worst classic movies i've ever seen.

I'll have to let him know. But he does love "The Gutte." SO much so he calls him "The Gutte"

I haven't watched Full Metal Jacket yet, either, despite the fact that I've had the DVD for months. It's so hard to find the time.

I've been meaning to see Citizen Kane but after seeing that ep of The Simpsons so many times I don't think I need/want to....or at least the ending is ruined for me now....

Having a great deal of personal concern for the marital success of all individuals I become antiquated with whilst I journey irrevocably along in my life, and also having a sense of admiration for solutions to dilemmas which exhibit sense, simplicity, and overall congeniality to those by whom they are partook, I ask that divorce not be considered an option, but rather that you and your husband discuss the merits of watching the movie together at some point in the near future. Your relationship, I fear, is of the greatest importance. Do not allow it to be sacrificed!

The Godfather for me, is one of my most hated movies of all time. I can't even begin to fathom why this is even considered a good movie, let along the best movie. Its the most boring drivel I've even had the unfortune to be subjected too. I cannot over emphasize how big of a pile of heaping trash this movie is.
Feel free to disagree with me.   :P

I'm sorry, but The Godfather is a must see. Especially for men. You need to at least be aware of that gangster mentality. Its often glorified too much, but that way of thinking is very real.

Books, I agree. I have tried on 3 occasions to try and watch The Godfather and all 3 times I got bored and changed the channel to TV or put something better in.

Have not seen but have, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, and Dr Strangelove.

Get off the internet and go watch Dr. Strangelove now...

I've yet to see The Hustler, Citzen Kane (don't really want to either) or Who's Afraid Of Virgina Woolf?

One Flew Over is bloody brilliant, and the book even more so. Also see Amadeus, Milos Forman's other masterpeice.

Shit, Books, I was going to say that OFOtCN works pretty well as a movie, but the book is amazing...likewise the film version of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf is good but the play is better.
And Amadeus is one of my favorite movies ever.

As for things I haven't seen, well, rather a lot...Never seen Citizen Kane either, only part of the Godfather, don't care to see Gone With The Wind, also a lot of sci-fi things that everyone on here has seen...

I have never seen any of the following movies mentioned in this thread:

Gone With The Wind (don't plan to ever see it)
The Graduate
Citizen Kane (my mom has it on VHS, I should probably see it eventually, but probably won't at least for a long time)
Casablanca (don't plan to ever see it)
North By Northwest (I own it on VHS, I like Hitchcock, so I'll probably watch it eventually)
The Godfather
Full Metal Jacket
Bill And Ted's Excellent Adventure (definitely want to see)
Pulp Fiction (mixed feelings about this...I've seen actually like random parts of it, and it doesn't look very appealing to me...on the other hand, MrBlonde might kill me for saying that)
A Clockwork Orange (definitely want to see)
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (definitely want to see)
Dr. Strangelove (Or How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Bomb) (probably will see at some point)
Amadeus (but I've heard from many people that it's very weird...I'd probably not be too into it)
Apocalypse Now

Other classic movies I haven't seen include (a ~ means that I plan to see it eventually):
Psycho ~
2001: A Space Odyssey (I think I've seen the first half of it or something) ~
Schindler's List ~
Goodfellas
Ben-Hur
Some Like It Hot
Animal House ~
The Breakfast Club
Breakfast At Tiffany's
The Exorcist
Rocky
Saving Private Ryan
The African Queen
Annie Hall ~

...and many more.

Well, I suppose it depends on what one identifies or defines as "classic".
But I would have thought that, along with Back to the Future, The Breakfast Club would be a universal on here.

Wow JT, That's a lot of great films you haven't seen, I don't know where to tell you to begin, I suppose North by Northwest, since you mentioned you have a VHS of it, definitely worth your while
