When I was growing up, I never watched that many movies; in fact, I remember people asking what the last movie I was at in the theatre, and I’d say the name of a movie that’d been out on tape for a few years already. We also never watched too many movies at home; we first got cable in 1993, and whenever we would sign up for the movie channels we’d rarely watch them.
So anyway, because of this, there are literally dozens of movies that most people have watched that I haven’t watched (or even worse, never heard of). I was happy not having watched these movies because I didn’t think that they had any significance to me, but there was cultural significance. Now, I have a list about as long as my arm of movies that I want to watch or should watch. Some of the movies in this list are (in no particular order, and includes some movies that I’ve watched already) –
Back to the Future trilogy
Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
Romeo + Juliet
Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure
Pump up the Volume
Dead Man Walking
Then, we have the Aussie Movies –
Priscilla, Queen of the Desert
I *know* that I am missing quite a few movies from this list, but what I want to do is make kind of a “master” list of movies that I should watch, and try to acquire them and watch them.
I’d be interested to know if there are other movies that are ones that everyone should watch and that I probably missed out on watching; leave a comment if you have some suggestions for me to take up, and we’ll let it go from there. 🙂
