    Which Popular Films Have You Never Seen?

    Which popular films have you never seen? Films that it seems everyone else has seen at least once. I'll start.

    Star Trek: I saw the series on TV as a child & it turned me off to a certain genre of science fiction, that set in a utopian intergalactic future. It was too socialistic & multicultural. So I never saw any of the Star Trek films except for Star Trek III: The Search for Spock which I saw with a group of friends & I'm not sorry I missed the rest of the franchise.

    Star Wars: As I said Star Trek turned me off to certain Sci-Fi films. And Star Wars has a certain mythology that I've never bothered to learn & seem necessary to know to understand the franchise so I don't think I would be able to enjoy any of the films.

    Rocky: I haven't seen any of the Rocky films. I've seen clips of Sylvestor Stallone interviews or clips of his films & he annoys the hell out of me. I will never pay good money to sit in a theater for 2 hours & listen to him mumble his way through a film.

    Rambo: ^

    The Terminator: Same reason as Rocky, just substitute Arnold Schwarzegger for Sylvestor Stallone.

    I have never seen a Stallone film & the only Schwarzenegger film I've ever seen was Kindergarten Cop & I'm not sure how I got trapped into seeing that one.

    Jaws: I wasn't allowed to see these when the first came out. Years later I caught a few minutes of the original while flipping channels & I thought That shark looks fake" & flipped the channel. I don't get what the fuss was about.

    Harry Potter: Some how I've so far manage to get out of supervising a trip to the theater to see a Harry Potter film. I'm not sure how long my luck will hold.

    Except for the Original Series (too comical) and Deep Space Nine (the captain is black), I've always enjoyed Star Trek. However, every now and then I do find myself switching the channel so as to avoid certain episodes because they wish to dwell on interracial relationships through their stories of interspecies relationships. There's more than a few which promote the "let's not judge or think less of anyone because of the blood in their veins" attitude. Others make positive messages about multiculturalism and even homosexuality

    The Godfather: I believe it's about the Italian mob in America. Therefore, not only is it about people who commit crimes, but they probably have atrocious accents while they're at it.

    Jaws: Just the cover was enough to scare me when I was younger. Living in Florida, I am very paranoid about sharks. I don't think my mother would've let me watch it anyway.

    Rocky: I don't like boxing or Sylvester Stallone.

    Casablanca: I've yet to see this movie in full regardless of how often I watch TCM.

    A Clockwork Orange: One of my teachers told me the story and it seemed like something that would leave me feeling ill.

    Pulp Fiction: Another crime movie.

    American Pie: I heard why they call it "American Pie".

    Roots: Some Negro movie. According to all my classmates, it's a disgrace I haven't seen it which makes me all the more uninterested. I'd probably boil over after 15 minutes like with most other Negro movies.

    Planet of the Apes: I gathered that I would not be happy with the moral of the story and decided to never watch it anytime it aired.

    Roots: Argh! We discussed it in school (junior high) so it was a homework requirement to watch it. Poor noble persecuted enslaved Black people.

    Watching the Holocaust was another homework assignment for social studies class.

    I saw all of the Planet of the Ape movies, with the exception of the Mark Wahlberg remake & couldn't help but draw parallels with Negroes & contemporary society. This was back before the Latino invasion.

    I've seen pretty much every major film with the exception of Jaws and Rocky, because they're only rated PG-13 and would be too tame and boring for me.

    I usually avoid lame teen romcoms and 'road trip' movies like American Pie and, erm, Road Trip. I've never found the clips remotely funny, so I never waste my time with them.

    I'd also never watch any spoofs. The concept of a spoof shouldn't lead to a bad film, but in practice it invariably does. I hate Scary Movie, even though everyone else seemed to love it. And apparently Scary Movie 2 through 2 million, along with Date Movie, Epic Movie, Disaster Movie and Meet the Spartans were even worse.

    Although I hate summer blockbuster movies, I always watch them when they come on TV. Crap like Pearl Harbor, The Day After Tomorrow are films I wish I'd never seen. I'm not going to bother watching the new The Mummy film or Indiana Jones movies, just because they'll be total garbage.

    And I've never been able to endure a full Harry Potter movie yet.

    I have to confess that I've never watched Schindler's List.

    I loved the German film Downfall though - I thought the performers were all excellent.

    Movie I've most been accused of being from but have never even seen a clip from: 'Deliverance'. Usually this accusation comes about from discussions of race or zionism.

    Aforementioned films I have declined to watch: Schindler's List, The Godfather, Jaws, Rocky, Casablanca, Rambo, Kindergarten Cop.

    I loved Downfall as well I am, however, skeptical about the way they made Hitler seem disgusted with the German people for losing the war. Is there any record of such thoughts or is this just an attempt to make Hitler look bad?

    I've never seen any Star Wars, any Harry Potter, and LOTR, nor have I seen the Matrix. I don't go for the big popular epic fiction movies. I like more indie stuff like the Coen Bros and historical films. I just saw No Country For Old Men, so I can scratch that off my list .
