Last week I posted the tweet below to The Weekly Planet Podcast, a favorite of ours here at The Fresnerd. Today I was pretty stoked to hear the guys read it and have a pretty good discussion around the question!
They really hit the nail on the head with the intent of this question. Basically, we all of movies that if we ever said out loud that we've never seen it our friends would gasp and shriek "What's wrong with you??" Ahhh...good fun.
So here are mine, the classics I've never seen!
Lots of gangster/mafia movies. I've never seen any of "The Godfather" movie, "Goodfellas," "The Departed," Gangs of New York." Nope. I'm fully aware of the horse head in the bed scene, but I've never seen these.
I only saw "The Shawshank Redemption" for the first time a year or two ago. When it was on TV.
Thinking "old classics" I've never seen "Citizen Kane," "Gone with the Wind" or "Casablanca."
Now at the risk of my nerd card, I'll admit I've never seen the Christopher Reeve's "Superman" movies.
And at risk of losing all of my friends, I've never seen "The Princess Bride." Inconceivable!
Yikes! OK, I think I survived that. So what about you, dear reader? What are the greats and classics you've never seen? Leave your replies in the comments below!
