I did a similar post before (here) and I enjoyed doing it a lot. Kinda for the lack of work that has to go into it (just saying) but also to show readers a no hold bars look at the real me. Namely by showing the absolute philistine / uninformed faker that I actually am.
Also if anyone is interested the original list still stands. I’ve still not seen any of them.
10. Citizen Kane
There. I said it.
An odd one because I like horror, loved the genre even more as a kid and watched every other 90s slasher. What happened?
8. The Bourne Identity
Never seen this or its sequels but gosh it does look terribly exciting!
7. Iron Man
A very popular and (I’m led to believe) an ‘above average’ ‘comic book movie’. Felt the need for a lot of sarcastic quotation marks there didn’t I. But yeah, for some reason this film just got past me and it’s way too much hassle going back now.
Not really my kind of film despite the obvious good things.
5. Gone with the Wind
Not sure why I’d watch this anyway, apart from because everyone says you HAVE TO. This, bloody Citizen Kane, bloody Lawrence of bloody Arabia. Will Top Ten or Hundred ‘must see’ film lists ever be updated? I’m being serious, they need updating.
4. City of God
Probably one of the most famous / popular non-English speaking films of modern times. And I’ve not seen it.
3. A couple of Harry Potters
And I’m not even sure which ones. I know I saw Philosopher’s Stone and Chamber of Secrets years ago on DVD. And I watched Goblet of Fire in the cinema. Recently on television I watched The Half Blood Prince and The Deathly Hallows Part 2. I’m just not sure about all of them and I know there’s a couple I’ve definitely not seen.
2. Blue Velvet
Not seen many David Lynch movies to be honest. Or much of a fan (except The Elephant Man – which is probably the most un-David Lynch film he made).
1. Either of the Matrix sequels
And I didn’t like the first that much either.
