I have seen "Titanic" and "Avatar," but just once. I enjoyed the first movie, but I have no idea why James Cameron has decided to practically dedicate his life moving forward to making 4 "Avatar" sequels that no one is asking for! 

My Dad and brother are big "Seinfeld" fans, so I remember that "English Patient" episode.

I've seen Mary Poppins.

I sat through Lawrence of Arabia once. I just checked IMDb and saw I gave it a pretty good rating on there, but thinking back all I remember is the amount of footage of them riding camels. Apparently the movie must have paid off pretty well for me despite how dull a lot of it was.

Someone was recently asking me if I'd seen some well known Christmas movies like Holiday Inn, White Christmas, and Meet Me in St. Louis. I have not. There's also a number of classic Disney movies I haven't seen, like Peter Pan and Bambi.

Beyond "Home Alone," the first two Santa Clause movies with Tim Allen, and the first "Bad Santa" with Billy Bob Thornton, I haven't seen most Christmas themed movies, including the classics. I don't think I've ever seen "Miracle on 34th Street," or "It's a Wonderful Life," for example.

I'm also not a big fan of animated movies. I watched them as a child, since my brother was quite the fan (and still is), but I think the last Disney animated film that I saw was probably "Mulan," and that was made in 1998!

If you only ever watch one Christmas movie then it simply has to be the original

with Die Hard as second...

I have It's A Wonderful Life as number one followed by Die Hard and Miracle On 34th Street as my top three Xmas films. :)

I've never seen a Star Wars film or an Indiana Jones.


See Raiders Of The Lost Ark, the first Indiana Jones film. I think you'll like it. :)

I finally watched Ferris Bueller's Day Off, thanks to Netflix. I wasn't blown away by it. It was an OK time filler. I can see why it has a cult following. John Hughes the director had a few quintessential teenage 1980's films from memory.

My favorite part was the Twist and Shout song on the parade float. 8)

It's so good to know I'm not alone, you guys describe my feelings exactly. :D I have never seen any of Lord of the Rings (tried to start the first one boooring) or Avatar, Star Wars...

But the one I was "sacrificed" because I didn't want to watch at that time, it was Ghost. I hate when a movie is over rated or too exalted, I always question if it is really all that.  It was a excitment when Ghost came up, you were considered weird or an alien if you hadn't watched but nothing about the movie appealed to me neither the cast nor the story. I remember at that time I went to the rent store (it was still the time of the rent stores ;D) to rent The Rookie and the owner offered me Ghost instead. I coldly answered "No" :buck2: After a lot time I decided to take a look and still today I don't understand all the commotion about it.

I agree on Ghost, Aline ... not bad, but wildly overrated.

On the other hand, I have guilty feelings about this one:
The Big Lebowski 1998



I never tire of this movie.. Its an annual treat..

And I've never seen it.  :(

I've seen most of the "Die Hard" movies. I don't really consider "Die Hard" to be a "Christmas" movie, though, since it's really more of an action film.

I've seen "The Big Lebowski," and I really hate it, so I think you should continue to avoid that one, KC. I don't think the Coen brothers have ever made a movie that I completely enjoyed though, so if you like other ones that they've done, it may be for you. 

I've also seen "Ghost," and agree that it is overrated, but it is also a pretty original movie, so it gets points for that from me.

I've also seen "Ferris Bueller's Day Off," but it wasn't a particular memorable film to me, so I don't recall much about it.

I've seen The Big Lebowski more than a dozen times, including twice at the theatre in the past few years, and I, like Gant, never tire of it. However, I also didn't care for it the first time I saw it in the 90s, and I recognize it's not for everyone. But I think it's brilliant. It also might help, though it's not necessary by any means, if you're familiar with Chandler and The Big Sleep.

Out of interest.... Has anyone here never seen a Rocky or Star Trek film.. ?


I've seen all the Rocky films except Creed II multiple times. I've only seen the original Star Trek movies once. Haven't seen any of the latest ones. I could never get into Star Trek. As a kid, I remember it was always on telly at 5pm on a Sunday night but it never interested me to watch every week.

I run hot and cold on the Coen brothers. Over the years, I've liked some of their stuff, and hated some of it.
