Films I haven't seen

You may remember my last post about cinema - or, you may not...  To be honest, I'm not sure I do...

Recently, however, it occurred to me how many films I have not seen, which people expect everyone to have seen...  Y'know, really well-known, famous movies - the kind that everyone has seen...  Except, err, I haven't!

So, I have made a list of so-called "must-see movies", which I haven't seen...  And here it is!

Titatnic  (I've seen bits of it, but I've never seen the whole film)
-  any of the Star Wars films (except The Phantom Menace - and I can't remember what happened in that anyway)
The Shawshank Redemption
The Godfather (nor any of its sequels)
-  Schindler's List
Silence Of The Lambs
Fight Club
Saving Private Ryan
-  any of the Terminator films
Reservoir Dogs
Taxi Driver
-  any of the Die Hard films
-  any of the Rocky films
Rambo (although, bizarrely, I have seen Rambo II)
Apocalypse Now
The Good, The Bad and The Ugly
Jurassic Park
Back To The Future
-  any of the Indianna Jones films
-  any Star Trek at all, ever
A Clockwork Orange
Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid
Breakfast At Tiffany's
The Wizard Of Oz
The Bridge On The River Kwai
Top Gun
-  most James Bond films (although I've seen bits of some, and I think all of one, but I don't remember which - there was a girl with half an ear in it, I think?!)
Blade Runner (I've seen parts of it - and I've analysed the soundtrack - but I've never seen the whole thing)
Citizen Kane
The Excorcist
A Hard Days Night
-  either of the King Kong films
Pulp Fiction
Groundhog Day
-  any of the Jaws films
When Harry Met Sally
One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest
The Shining
-  any of the Alien films (except the first half of Alien 3 - in fact, it may not even have been half)
The Sixth Sense
Who Framed Roger Rabbit?
American Beauty
The Big Sleep

If you can think of any "must-see" films which I haven't mentioned, ask me in the comments if I've seen them - the answer's probably "no"!
