Haven't seen, and it doesn't matter if I do either way:
Gone With The Wind
Ben Hur
Casablanca
The Wizard Of Oz
pretty much any 'classic' that would fit this second list.
Wow. I can understand lumping Adam Sandler's movies together but you can't do that with Tom Cruise. Tom has worked with...Kubrick, PT Anderson, Scorsese, Scott, Mann, Spielberg, Crowe and many other great directors. I don't see how anything he has done is a "Tom Cruise movie"

Until this past weekend I had never sen "A Clockwork Orange." I had always meant to see it, but never got around to it until now. It's dated, but still very good.

Based on these lists, some of you may have to revoke your DVDTalk memberships.

I get the biggest shocked expressions when I tell people I have never watched Gone With the Wind, but then they tell me they never watched La Haine and I smack them j/k

Lawrence of Arabia, although having just bought the 2-disc LE I plan on correcting that soon.

Do people really consider movies from the 70s to be "old"?

I consider myself to be fairly young-minded, if that's a word, and when I hear people talk about "old" movies, I think black and white, or silent, or movies where almost everyone in them is dead. But maybe I'm getting old.

But The Godfather films? Might as well have been last year in my mind.

There's quite a few just based on the lists provided in this thread, so there's no point in re-listing them all. Luckily I've become a Turner Classic Movies junkie and will probably have seen the majority of them soon enough. For instance, right now my TiVo has "The Great Escape", "On the Waterfront", "Doctor Zhivago", "Equus" (does that qualify as popular?) "Frenzy" and "Bunny Lake is Missing" waiting for me.

But yeah, aside from Netflix, TCM's been the place where I've been going to catch up on the classics.

Damn how can you be a film major and not seen Citizen Kane? Fail.

Haven't seen Pretty Woman, I'm fine with that.

Just some the other day that a friend of mine is astonished I've never seen:

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
The Goonies
Witness
2001 A Space Odyssey
Terminator
Aliens 2 (and subsequent)

There are also several classic films I've never seen that I'd love to get to one day, but I never seem to find the time.

It matters as far as movie appreciation is concerned. I think that anyone who has a fondness for cinema and who wants to experience a truly great American film must see THE GODFATHER and THE GODFATHER PART II. (Frankly, I would also include PART III but to a much lesser degree.)

The story of how Michael Corleone rises to power, falls from grace and ultimately fails at redemption represents an insight into the history of America itself. It is an accomplished work of art, and is far more significant than other popular entertainment (like BACK TO THE FUTURE or SILENCE OF THE LAMBS, both of which I did enjoy).

Other "great" movies like SOUND OF MUSIC, DR. ZHIVAGO, and even GONE WITH THE WIND are wonderful spectacles with truly terrific moments, but lack the emotional and visceral impact of GODFATHER or some of the better foreign films.

Finally, any unique perspective can be enhanced by a good piece of cinema. I might enjoy SUPERGIRL, and you may love FANTASTIC FOUR, but that doesn't mean we can broaden our tastes with better quality movies.

Salo.

It seems pretty popular around here, anyway.
