The Goonies- Never saw it. Never interested in seeing it. But who between the ages of 23 and 35 hasn't seen it? Sigh. I'll choke it down even though it's about little boys.
The Princess Bride- Again...not interested. If there's a lot of hype around a film, I destined to dig my heels in and not see it. I didn't see Titanic until it was on it's 3rd month in theaters. I didn't see Avatar until it was on blue ray.
Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure- I was just scolded today for never having seen this. I can't guarantee I'm sold on it when the argument for seeing it included a ghost hovering over a step-mom at a seance and seeing her boobs down her shirt.
Alien- Maybe I'm scared of it because I was told I look like young Sigourney. I don't want to see myself battle aliens and have more dreams? I don't have a reaction to why I never saw this. I think I wasn't "allowed" to see it when it came out and then it just fell by the wayside.
Clearly Alien is right up my alley. I love horror and I love aliens even more. So I plan to get on that asap.
Scarface- Not happening. Bite me. But I did see the house where some of it was filmed in Miami.
The Godfather- I'm 90% sure I've seen bits and pieces of one of them. Not sure which one. Someday I realize as an Italian I do have to sit down and watch it.
Gone With the Wind- Meh. Girls in big dresses speaking in southern accents. I think I'll pass. I'd rather watch Divine Secrets of the Ya Ya Sisterhood.
Pulp Fiction- If you know the dance, do you really need to see the movie?
Why is this so intriguing to all of you? If you can tell me ONE good thing about this movie, maybe I'll consider it.
Labyrinth- I don't know what it's about, but apparently they sing? It sounds like musical Zelda. Am I wrong?
Rocky Horror Picture Show- Any time my parents talk about this movie they bring up throwing bread at the screen...I don't know. Cross-dressing. I;m down.
Ghostbusters- Any of them. Wasn't allowed to see them as a kid and never caught up.
I enjoyed making this list, and it elicited a few gasps already by some of my co-workers. I asked them for more and they helped greatly. If you have any others, bring 'em on!!
