What comes to mind as the most popular movie you've never seen?

Posted - February 11

Responses


  • I sat through GWTW years ago, and I was bored...SO bored. Highly overrated.     I have several popular movies that I have no interest in sitting through:  E.T, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Princess Bride, Jennifer Aniston films other than Office Space, and every Star Wars movie after the third one (Because I didn't learn my lesson the first three times) This post was edited by Benedict Arnold at February 11, 2019 3:25 PM MST

  • Movies prior to like 1970 just don't really do it for me....I know they are classics but they just have this dated feel to them I can't get past. It all just feels so fake to me.  

    I like how you shunned the entire Jennifer Aniston filmography with one exception.  I shun Melissa McCarthy but without exception.

  • lol I love Melissa McCarthy in that Bridesmaids movie, but I hate hate HATE chick flicks in general, so I shun a lot of stuff.

  • I saw that one but I've never seen Pretty in Pink or Sixteen Candles.  Something about Molly Ringwald I don't like.

  • i looooove sixteen candles! it was my moms fav movie when she was a teen so whenever it was on tv she would watch it, which is why i have seen it so much too. 

    ive seen bits and pieces of the breakfast club but i've never actually sat through it

  • Breakfast Club is another overrated one.   Not a bad movie, just not something to get so excited about. This post was edited by Benedict Arnold at June 23, 2019 6:01 PM MDT

    It was awesome. Those cat-like women were incredible.

  • I have never seen the movie.  I don't know how I knew it was Avatar, I guess Jaimie's description just sounded Avatar-y to me.  Or Smurf-fy, and I knew  that was not correct. hah.

    I wasn't able to get through that one, it put me to sleep. I can't even remember the parts I did watch, but I know it was called Avatar. However, every time I hear that word I think of that awful Shyamalan movie that I watched just because I thought it would at least be a funny kind of bad but it wasn't even that. So it's forever tainted for me.

    I opened the question expecting to say GoneWithTheWind.

    But you already had that one, so "Solaris" instead I once watched the first 10 minutes of it, and found it so horribly boring that I got up and left. But it was all the rage in SF circles. with everyone calling it a masterpiece.

    The book it was based on was even written by one of my favorite authors "Stanislaw Lem", but I just couldent stand the movie. Maybe backlash from high expectations ;-)

    Are you talking about the old one or the new one? I haven't seen the new one with george clooney, but I had the same reaction as you for the 1972 russian version. But I watched through the whole thing out of obligation, asking myself a few times during the move "where the f**k is this going??"

    And then I got to the last 15 seconds, and something is revealed, and it blew my mind. Suddenly the whole thing made perfect sense, and I even watched it a second time in the same week. That viewing was not at all boring, and it was actually kind of hilarious knowing exactly what I was seeing now, the twist seemed painfully obvious and I couldn't believe I didn't see it coming. I thought my friend (who I was showing it to, and who was also bored) would guess the end and maybe I was just a dummy, but he was also blown away by it.

    More than I can put down here, but Titanic and Avatar come to mind right off.

  • That's pretty impressive that you managed to escape seeing Titanic.

    I didn't see Titanic, either. I already knew what happened.
