(not really) essential viewing

Kirk's comment below (that he has never seen Gremlins), coupled with the fact that yesterday I discovered that Steph has never seen Die Hard ( I KNOW!!!), got me thinking of movies that I've not seen (harder to come up with a list then you'd figure).

There seem to be certain films that you just figure everyone has seen, but it turns out that, of course, isn't the case.

Anyway. Here are some of mine:

The Godfather (any of them)
Office Space
pretty much every Woody Allen film ever

Like I said, coming up with a list of things I've not seen is sorta difficult. ALso, it isn't like these are necessarily things I don't want to see (except for the Woody Allen movies. I just don't like his humor), just that I haven't gotten around to watching them.

Are there any films you either haven't seen (and other people think you should/need to) or movies that you (somehow) know that I haven't seen but think I should? If so, discuss!

I don't know anyone who has seen a Woody Allen movie, or at least admitted that they had.

I used my college education to catch up on all my required viewing, so I'm good.

You also haven't seen The Big Lebowski. Just sayin'.

Also, I've never seen Dirty Dancing. There are some films that I've never seen in full (Reservoir Dogs), and some films that I can't remember if I've seen in full (The Godfather), but that's one that I've never seen even a little.

I have not seen any of the movies George Lucas insists are the first 3 episodes of Star Wars. Because I know they don't really exist.

I find that first comment rather bizarre.

Anyway, I've never seen The Graduate. And Mary-Jane still hasn't seen Die Hard (or 2, or 3, though she did see Live Free or Die Hard with me). I've never seen a Bill & Ted movie. Others I waited forever, e.g., I didn't see either The Matrix or Lord of the Rings until after their first sequels came out.
