    Hi guys,
    Silly one this but I consider myself to be a film fan but I realised the other day that I've never seen ET or Citizen Kane. What's the 'biggest' film you've never seen? :rolleyes:

    I have never seen a Harry Potter film yet and those are pretty big ( budget anyways )
    seen most other movies including all the golden oldies.

    I've still not seen Schindler's List although it's sat in my to watch pile. I think I'll need to be in the mood to watch it so will get around to it one day.

    Theres a few, but a recent example is matrix revolutions, given I own the previous films I'm quite apathetic about the finale. I'm sure I'll watch it some day though, probably when it hits the bargain bins ;)

    I really wouldn't bother even with it in the bargain bin. It was dross.

    My "biggest" no-see is, like Ian J's, Titanic.

    Must say I never thought it was that bad :blush:

    My biggest I guess would be the new Star Wars films.

    I've not seen LOTR ROTK.
    I nearly got it out yesturday but I just couldn't be bothered to sit through it.
    I guess it's a being in the right mood thing, I'm sure it's a good film, I enjoyed the last one, but not the first one (probably because I saw it in the Cinema & it was too long)
    I can't believe someone hasn't seen Saving Private Ryan, watch it today!

    Me neither, I slept through most of the 1st, then paid to watch it again to see what the fuss was about, got bored, but still went to see the second.

    Ha Mr Jackson, you won't get me a third time!

    Up until Christmas past, it would have been The Wizard Of Oz...but I saw it on Boxing day on TCM and thoroughly enjoyed it... :blush:

    I suppose now it would have to be Citizen Kane...though I will put that right in the next 2 weeks and rent it out.

    Very strange, but I have recorded this 3 times, but on each occasion something has happened to the video. First time it only recorded for an hour, second time it recorded another programme, and third time the video died completely and wouldn't play back. I think I'm destined never to watch this film :)

    Gone with the Wind. But thats simply because I haven't been bothered to watch it yet :)

    When I first saw this, the first few minutes I though I was not going to like it but very soon it griped me and would not let go till the end and is now one of my top films.
    I have recommended it to quite a few people and they have been very happy with the recommendation.

    Thanks for the recommendation, will give my honest opinion once I've seen it.

    BBC3 21:00 tonight (15 mins to go) - will probably tape it as my wife wants to see it as well.

    Let's keep a look out for broadcasts of other classics mentioned in this thread (apart from Titanic :laugh: ) so we can give each other the heads up.

    Not missing much, but Attack of the Clowns is the better of the two.

    'Blade Runner' is possibly the best film ever created.

    You simply must stop whatever it is you are doing and watch it. Now. :thumbsup:
