My dark cloud of Movie Geek shame


I finally caught Juno the other night. I thought it was entertaining. Personally, I thought Juno was more of a condescending shit, then a hip and witty teen. Anyway, it only took me almost a year to see it, and that got me thinking about a rather embarrassing list I've had in my head all these years. Great/Successful/Acclaimed movies, that I've never seen. Did I mention I worked in a video store for almost 10 years? In no particular order, and with some commentary, here are a few...
  • Dances With Wolves (until they take back the OSCAR and give it to Goodfellas, I'll never watch this movie)
  • The Matrix (fell asleep)
  • Touch of Evil (Charlton Heston as a Mexican??)
  • Ghost (Swayze!)
  • Pretty Woman (kind of creepy if you think about it)
  • Raging Bull
  • Any and all movies with Humphrey Bogart (never got the appeal of Mr. Bogart)
  • It's a Wonderful Life
  • Lawrence of Arabia
  • Annie Hall
  • Donnie Darko
  • Anything by Fellini or Almodóvar
  • Gone With The Wind (I don't give a damn either)
  • The Lion King
  • Network
Feel free to share you Greatest Misses!

I'm totally with you on Dances With Wolves. Same reason I will never see the English Patient, Driving Miss Daisy or Titanic. Of course I have a blanket "no-Costner" rule so it doesn;t really matter.

Good call on The English Patient. I thought of that one while I was driving to work this morning.
