PCP - 15 movies I'm embarrassed to admit I've never seen.

Hi everyone and welcome back to CRAPOLA.  Today’s entry is another one in the Pop Culture Panorama section of my blog.  This post came out of a conversation I had recently on Twitter with Gordon McAlpin, the creator of the funny movie theater webcomic Multiplex.  We were discussing the recent prequel of The Thing (read my review of that here) and I was forced to admit that I had never seen the original movie directed by John Carpenter, much to my disappointment and embarrassment.  Obviously, anyone that knows me knows that I love movies.  I’ve seen over 1300 in my life, and I watch at least 2 movies a week, minimum.  Yet somehow, these movies are ones that I have never seen.  So, over time, I am going to watch these films and write reviews of them, better late than never!  These are the films that I am most embarrassed to admit I have never seen.  Hit me up on Facebook, Twitter, or in the comments section of this post to tell me which movie from this list you’d like to see me review first!  Here’s the list, in alphabetical order.

  1. Ben-Hur
  2. The Big Lebowski
  3. Blade Runner
  4. Dazed & Confused
  5. Fargo Seen & reviewed
  6. Gone With the Wind
  7. The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly
  8. Goodfellas
  9. The Hurt Locker
  10. Lawrence of Arabia
  11. The Night of the Living Dead (original)
  12. Seven Samurai Seen & reviewed
  13. Star Trek II:  The Wrath of Khan
  14. Swingers
  15. The Thing (original) Seen & reviewed
Ok so those 15 are considered to be at least cult classics if not outright classics, and a number of them are on many top 100 all time film lists.  I even own over a third of them, I just haven’t gotten around to watching them yet.  So tell me which one you’d like to see reviewed first (in the comments, Facebook, or Twitter), and I’ll start a new series of reviews here on the blog where I review a movie from this list as a standalone, full length review.

Ok that’s all for today.  Check back later this week and I’ll have some reviews up for some more movies, or maybe a post based on the outcome of today’s GOP primaries in Arizona and Michigan in the POS section of my blog.  Thanks for stopping by!

  1. So far based on comments on Facebook and Twitter, Seven Samurai is in the lead for movie I need to watch first, but a bunch of others have also gotten votes too as an FYI to all. Now it comes down to which I can talk my wife in to watching with me first.
