I have seen all ten. HONEST!
Me too, David. I can't understand this at all. I understand pretending you've read certain books but movies? Weird.Jeff
I've seen all but Reservoir Dogs and Goodfellas.
You know, I've never made it all the way through 2001 (even though I really liked the book) and I've never seen Bladerunner sober (saw it three times in college though).
Not only have I seen all ten, I have seen all three versions of Blade Runner.
What a strange thing to lie about. Not only have I seen all ten, I saw all but two of them in a theater when they were originally released. "Casablanca" was released two years before I was born, and for some reason I just missed "Spinal Tap" until I caught it on home video. Until the last couple of years, though, I had two movie lapses at least as embarrassing as any of these; "The Wizard of Oz" and "Gone With the Wind". I enjoyed the first half of "GWTW", but the second half was really dull. "Wizard" was dull from start to finish. At least now I can say I've seen them.
Like Randy, I have not seen Reservoir Dogs (though I have it on DVD) or Goodfellas
Of well, that was me above.
In these days of Netflix and live streaming, why in the world is there a need to pretend you haven't seen a particular film when, in most cases, you can see it when you want--especially if it's a popular, well-known one.Put me in the never-seen "Reservoir Dogs" column. The funny thing is, I've heard & read so much about, I feel as if I have seen even though I know I haven't. All the others, I'm sure I've seen.
Missed Spinal Tap and only saw part of 2001--the opening bored me senseless and I found it had to continue.I've seen some of the others numerous times. Also, I saw all three Godfather movies. In #3 an FBI agent is played by James Murdock, who was Mushy in Rawhide.
There are some I pretend NOT to have seen.
I've seen six of these, the six I wanted to see. And most of those in theatres.Frankly this list doesn't make that much sense to me. I mean it's not like a list of the books that people pretend to have read - like "Moby Dick" and "War & Peace" - if for no other reason than time commitment. Movies are, on the whole, easier than books.
Why bother lying?
I could take or leave Scorsese, Ridley Scott, Quentin Tarantino but all have made some rather good or important movies -- I've seen all these films. I, too, don't get that someone would pretend to see a few films, or even later admit they really didn't tell the truth about seeing films!2001 is a film to slog through, and I recall seeing it three times.Blade Runner is okay; as a noir it's probably an excellent movie.Spinal Tap I missed for many years, but on request of a friend I saw it and the "lost" one hour or so of footage and it's very funny stuff.Apocalypse Now is very good (and probably very bad) but it's worth the hard work and pain that went into filming it. John Milius and George Lucas invented the idea for the story, but Lucas went on to work on script for his 'space opera' and his mentor, Coppola, begged to proceed with the idea of the Vietnam-era film and create/film the idea. -By the way - I read about half of MOBY DICK, a few chapters of LES MISERABLES, and picked up but didn't read through WAR AND PEACE - not yet!
(I meant I'd seen all 10 in the list noted above - not that I'd seen all by a specific director such as Scorsese or R. Scott!).
