People I know are amazed I've never seen Goonies or the original Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. And the same with the Terminator movies, and the Predator movies.

And I am old enough I should have enjoyed those when I was a kid.

I've never seen a James Bond movie in it's entirety!

And if it's a war movie set in a time period in the last century or so, I probably haven't seen it, other than BlackHawk Down.

Any Fellini or Miyazaki movie
Gone with the Wind
It's a Wonderful Life
All of Chaplin's work

All Harry Potter movies

Singin' in the Rain

Probably the most notable one for me was The Lion King. My father died when I was 6 in April of '94. The movie came out two months later, and to this day I can't bring myself to watch it for obvious reasons.

None of your teachers showed Citizen Kane?

I haven't seen The African Queen but that's mostly because it's not on DVD.

The most notable for me is likely Gone with the Wind. I'm pleased to see that I'm not alone in that. I own the big set, an mean to watch it, but it's not on my list right now.

I haven't seen, and NEVER INTEND to see any of the following:

No Lord Of The Rings
No Pirates Of The Caribbean
No Harry Potter
None of Will Farrell's big movies except for Old School
None of Adam Sandler's movies
None of Tom Cruise's movies
None of the Disney/Pixar movies

Haven't seen, and it doesn't matter if I do either way:
Gone With The Wind

pretty much any 'classic' that would fit this second list.

The funny thing is there's not a single movie listed yet that I haven't seen. And I never considered myself a "movie nut".
