If I see these films I think my movie viewing will be complete.
El Topo
***etc.
Ilsa The Wicked Warden
Scott, you are in good shape if those are the only "classics" you're missing (I recommend FASTER p***yCAT KILL! KILL!) 


I'm trying as hard as I can Allhallowsday  Smile. I might add THE IRON CROSS, but I'm still not sure whether I have seen it or not. Would also like to see John Wayne in THE TRAIN ROBBERS which is the only film after RED RIVER of his that I haven't seen yet and I think I own most of his early lesser films on cheap $1 dvd. Speaking of $1 dvds I have about 275 sitting on my selve to be viewed for the first time. There are always more films but the list above will really clear things up for me.

FASTER p***yCAT KILL KILL has been the most elusive film for me I had a great chance to see it on TCM a few months ago and blew it.

What I enjoy is finding films like DETOUR which I saw recently or other films that lend themselves to greater films that come later. Like I saw JESSE JAMES recently and you could instantly see how parts of this film were used in  the filming of TOMBSTONE (Doc Hollidays character) and also the film THE LONG RIDERS. It's neat to see the connecting pieces of film history. I guess I'm really more like a film student who has not ever made a film.

I intend to see most of those most famous films if I ever find the time. Taped THE DEER HUNTER not long ago although I'm not sure when I'm going to find three hours to watch it. I've also never seen ROCKY HORROR.

A Clockwork Orange.

Same here. The truly pathetic part? I've owned the DVD for 8 years now...

The FDA has been looking for a generic name for Viagra. After careful consideration by a team of government experts, it recently announced that it has settled on the generic name of Mycoxafloppin. Also considered were Mycoxafailin, Mydixadrupin, Mydixarizin, Dixafix, and of course, Ibepokin.

^^^ to paraphrase Homer Simpson: go to your room and spank yourself.

Clockwork Orange is literally one of the best films ever made. watch it a.s.a.p., you won't regret it.

edit: unless your DVD is a rip of the pirate which circulated before the original ban was lifted, in which case it will have subtitles and grainy image, you need the official release, really...

Some more additions...

Never seen Godzilla, the one with Matthew Broderick.  Heard that a) it sucks and b) it's not really Godzilla, it's more like a Jurassic Park film. 

I've seen like the last dunno hour or so of Clockwork Orange, but not all of it, so does that count?  Came in about the time when he's in prison...

Also you can throw in just about any romantic comedy, as I found most of that dreck unrealistic, unappealing and sometimes even depressing as it reminds me of my own sorely lacking love line.  Films like You've Got Mail, Maid In Manhattan, etc, etc.

haven't seen Raging Bull, although I saw a clip of it in one of my Digital Production classes and have put it on my list (how Joe Pesci is all like, "Hey, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I got a little carried away..." right before he decks some guy!)

Never seen Hostel, and don't really plan to.  Not really into the "let's watch people get tortured for no reason for an hour and half type films". 

Also, like others haven't seen any Hitchcock films, except for The Birds and Psycho.  Course it was so long ago that I saw The Birds I don't remember an awful lot about it.

Not seen Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb, been told it's a very funny movie but, dunno.. maybe I'll queue it someday.

Lawrence of Arabia don't really even KNOW much about this film, other than it's one a lot of "top ten" lists...

Going over the IMDB top lists, I find several more... Chinatown, Life Is Beautiful, Das Boot, The Lives of Others (never even HEARD ot that one before now), The African Queen, Dog Day Afternoon (told it's one of Pacino's best performances), etc, etc.

You GOTTA see the begining.  A Clockwork Orange is my all time favorite movie.  The cinematography, music, costumes, lighting, acting...Everything is just mindblowing.

haven't seen Raging Bull, although I saw a clip of it in one of my Digital Production classes and have put it on my list (how Joe Pesci is all like, "Hey, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I got a little carried away..." right before he decks some guy!)

Raging Bull is a great movie.  Check it out!  It's the main reason why I play Jake LaMotta when I play Fight Night Round 3.  TeddyR

Never seen Hostel, and don't really plan to.  Not really into the "let's watch people get tortured for no reason for an hour and half type films". 

Same here!

Also, like others haven't seen any Hitchcock films, except for The Birds and Psycho.  Course it was so long ago that I saw The Birds I don't remember an awful lot about it.

I'm a big Hitch fan.  Go out and get North by Northwest!  It's my fav Hitch film...Along with Vertigo and The Man Who Knew Too Much.  Almost all of his movies were innovative and groundbreaking.  Nobody even to this day does suspense movies like Hitchcock.

Not seen Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb, been told it's a very funny movie but, dunno.. maybe I'll queue it someday.

This is another must-see.  It's funny to see a movie bash the Cold War before it really went into high gear.  Peter Sellers is hysterical in his three roles.  George C. Scott is over the top funny as well.  There's a lot of sexual innuendo in the flim (hence the name).

This is really a creepy film about a business called "Elete Hunting" in Yugoslavia who's clients pay top dollar to torture people. They pay more for Americans. It was more than just a torture film to me. The torture scenes are disturbing and this may be the only reason not to view it.

A must see Classic.

I really liked DOG DAY AFTERNOON.

Anything with Humphrey Bogart in it is good including THE AFRICAN QUEEN.

CLOCKWORK ORANGE is really strange. You'll like it.

Mmm . . . gonna have to disagree with you, Oldskool138, on that one.  Certainly DR. STRANGELOVE is well worth a look see, but the so-called Cuban Missile Crisis occured in October 1962, so DR. STRANGELOVE released 1964 was not only very timely, but a cinematic response to the very real possibility (and stupidity) of nuclear war.  There are quite a few films that deal with the same subject, all around the same time, such as ON THE BEACH (1959) SEVEN DAYS IN MAY (1964)  and FAIL-SAFE (1964).

I thought that I heard that Dr. Strangelove came out like a month before the crisis.  That's why it was such a big hit...If that not the case, I stand corrected.  Still, Dr. Strangelove is more about drawing a comparison between war and sex.

George C. Scott's character is an exhibitionist.  The bombers and the bomb itself are shot to look phallic.  (Even the opening scene of two planes refueling... Wink).  Jack D. Ripper and the British officer form a sort of a homosexual relationship.  All Kubrick's movies all have a weird second meaning to them.

BTW, has anyone seen Color Me Kubrick?  It directed by Kubrick's long-time cinematographer and it's about a man (John Malkovich) who cons people by pretending to be Stanley Kubrick.  It's based on a true story and the whole thing is a big-time homage to Stanley.  They use a lot of the same shots and music in all of Kubrick's movies.  Check it out!

Out of those three I found SEVEN DAYS IN MAY to be the best.

Considering Al Gore owns major stock in alternative fuel companies at the same time owning three huge mansions, I'd take that "documentary" with the proverbial grain of salt.  Also, considering the Earth has gone through cycles of heating and cooling over the millennia...Well, you catch my drift.  The only thing I have to thank Al Gore for is the creation of the internet.   Lookingup

Sorry, I did not intend to politicize the discussion, but must point out that even President Bush's administration has reluctantly acknowledged the data on Global Warming; it's not a fantasy.  If Al Gore owns "major stock" in "alternative fuel companies" he must be way losing money.   TeddyR 

Al Gore developed the High Performance Computing and Communication Act of 1991 and I often hear democrats misquoted by republicans, and perhaps vice versa, so I don't know for sure what Al Gore may have claimed, but he most certainly had a significant hand in the developement of this thingee that enables us to type to one another. 

BTW I'm a registered independent.

As am I (but I lean to the right on most issues...I'm a big fan of Ron Paul!). 

I just think Gore is trying to pull a fast one on the whole world.  I take what he and Michael Moore say with a very small grain of salt.  It's propaganda for all intents and purposes.  I'm not saying you shouldn't see "Truth" but you should also see where Gore is coming from.  The Earth will always be here (well, until the Sun novas).  Whether or not the human race survives is up to our progeny to decide.
