What "Classic" Movies Have You Never Seen?

So, we had some friends over last night and the guy started talking to me about classic movies. He mentioned a scene from The Godfather and I told him that I've never seen it. He looked at me like I was an alien and asked about a few others.

So, how about you?

There are legitimate arguments against some on that list. Movies like Star Wars and Lord of the Rings dip into genres that some people will have no interest in. Although if you're a fan of movies you're doing yourself an injustice by avoiding them.

And why is Inception on that list?

As a big movie buff I watched the first Star Wars and the first two LOTR,just had no desire to go any further.

I think you are hitting on exactly the reason why most don't watch or even try to.

In THAT era, movies like that were groundbreaking pieces of art. If you try to look at movies from that time you are looking at them through the eyes of this generation.

To me movies like The Grapes of Wrath, 12 Angry Men, Casblanca and It's A Wonderful Life are from a generation apart. You have to love old classic movies in B&W to really enjoy them and they aren't everyone's cup of tea.

Fast forward this thread 10 years and you will have a generation of people saying how bad and cheesy movies are from this era.

28. Léon: The Professional (1994)

51. Django Unchained (2012)

52. The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) X (plan to see this weekend)

59. Paths of Glory (1957) X

83. Grave of the Fireflies (1988) X

84. 12 Years a Slave (2013) X
They are the ones that I haven't seen....I will probably rent Django Unchained this weekend and check it out. Will probably see 12 Years A Slave and Wolf of Wall Street when they come to the $2 Movie Theater. I've watched too many movies over the years, but I got that honestly. When I was young I would spend my weekends at my Grandpa & Grandma's house and on Sunday afternoon it was tradition to watch movies during the colder months.

Because it's a great movie. I don't know if I would put it as high as that on my personal list, but it deserves to be there.

Taxi Driver (Scorcese's best IMO), the Miyazaki films on that list (Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke are both incredible), A Clockwork Orange (so unique, Kubrick in the prime of his career...though, a warning, it is more intense than Silence of the Lambs and Aliens), Oldboy (definitely watch it over Spike Lee's remake, it's another one heavy on violence, though).

Some are certainly more dated than others, of course. Having watched 12 Angry Men just last week again, though, I don't see that as a problem with that one.

I love a good B&W film in my tops are pretty much anything Cagney and the classic dark comedy Arsenic & Old Lace.

That is such a good movie. I started watching it a few weeks ago with my teenagers in the room, they were hooked. My daughter was annoyed with me (in jest) because it forced her off of the internet.

I have that movie in my collection...it honestly transcends the eras because the theme of the movie still resonates today. People and preconceived notions, bigotry and prejudices are just as prevalent today as there were when the movie was first made.
