I never thought I was deprived of much growing up but as I get older I learned I was sheltered from the movie world at large. There's this whole world out there that I've never been involved with! Crazy. Maybe it's because we never really went to the movies together. It wasn't our "scene". But, believe it or not I've never seen A LOT of the "classic" movies. Doesn't even matter which "classic" you're talking about! So, I think I'm going to make a list of movies that I've never seen that everyone says I "HAVE" to see :) and are shocked that I haven't already yet in these 28 years.
It's funny...as I think about them I wonder how much time must have been spent watching these movies, and, looking back when on Earth I would have been able to watch them all let alone catch up on them! Here's a partial list. I'm sure it will grow
The Princess Bride
Pretty in Pink
Singing in the Rain
The King and I
Miracle on 34th Street (the original or remake!)
20,000 Leagues Under the Sea
Fast Times at Ridgemont High
Monty Python (any of them...there are multiple right?)
Revenge of the Nerds
Bad News Bears
Any of the 80s horror films (Nightmare on Elm Street, etc.)
Star Wars, the original 3 (I've seen the newer versions)
Breakfast at Tiffany's
A Christmas Story
The Best Little XX in Texas
Born on the 4th of July
Can't Buy Me Love
The Color Purple
Dead Poet's Society
Driving Miss Daisy
Ferris Bueller's Day Off
Any of the Rocky movies
Scarface, the Godfather, or any of those movies
When Harry Met Sally
Bottom line...if I "should have" seen it...I probably haven't. Funny huh? I guess it's part of who I am.
So...what other movies should I add to my list...like "OMG...you haven't seenXX"?
The answer's probably no, but I'd like to know what you'd consider a classic that I should have seen.
