Are there any 'big' films that you have managed to go through life without watching? You know the kind - it's like everyone and their dog has seen this movie. Like the Goonies or ET; and you garner a shocked look? I've managed to avoid - The Notebook The Harry Potters series SATC 2 Any of the Star Wars movies

Oh god I think i probably have about a hundred of these, There are some films i just look at and go NO straight away and then there some that i just think Meh! couldn't really be bothered with it. One that is bone of contention with my oh as he dying to see is "Lost in translation", I don't know why but if i even hear mention of it i walk away. it just has to be the mix of scarelet Johanson (sp) and bill murray thats putting me off but I haven't even seen a clip of it and i feel bored thinking of it. very ignorant of me i know Titanic ( oh how i would loathe to see this) Blood Diamond I compelely missed the ball on this The English Patient - i saw a clip and i thought snore!!!!! :zzzz: :zzzz: :zzzz: I sound very ignorant but some films just have no appeal to me. :-8

The Princess Bride is the big one for me I think... everytime I mention I haven't seen it the look of shock and horror on my friends faces is hilarious!

Christ there are LOADS! The Sound of Music Princess Bride English Patient The Goonies The oldies like Gone with the Wind etc. Most of the Disney films - not really into cartoon films .... I could go on all day! Mkb - Blood Diamond is one of my favourite films, definitely worth watching honestly!
