Whenever I tell people I haven't seen these movies I am subjected to 20 minutes of crap. Maybe it's just me, but does anyone else run into this problem.

Scarface
and
Taxi Driver

I'm sure there are more, but these are the two I get the most crap about.

Raging Bull too, but no one ever seems to care about that.

No, because I've seen more movies than most of my friends and family. That, and I don't rush to the theater to see every Adam Sandler or Will Ferrell movie that comes out, so I've almost never seen the types of movies people ask me about, and I don't care to.

So, (with the exception of Todd, who answered this in his post) do you guys want to see these movies? I mean, personally, I think you're missing out if you haven't enjoyed Raiders of the Lost Ark or Casablanca, etc. Do you not care at all, or just assume that films like Citizen Kane are over-hyped?

Most of the classic films listed are easily accessible without charge in public libraries or on television. I certainly understand having a backlog of media to work through, but I am curious as to whether you guys are interested in ever catching up on the (subjective term ahead) classics.

Well, my wife wants to see it. She thinks it looks like a fun action movie in the vein of Pirates of the Carribean.

And that reminds me I still have seen:
The third Pirates movie (I forget the title)
Revenge of the Sith

I've lost my enthusiasm for catching up on the "classics" after sitting through Citizen Kane, Godfather, Scarface, Annie Hall, Rear Window, North by Northwest, Midnight Cowboy, Manchurian Candidate and finding them dated or disappointing. (I've seen 33 of the original AFI Top 100 movie list.)

At some point I will probably make an effort to see Apocalypse Now and Casablanca.

Talk about pacing issues. They spent the first half hour on the wedding party and the last hour is jumping ahead years at a time from scene to scene :-?

I'm sure my opinion was diminished by the fact that I watched countless rip-off mob movies over the years before finally seeing it this year.

But...they're older movies...of course they're going to be dated.
But to watch them with an appreciation of the things they influenced, of the films that came after them, that's where the joy in watching them comes from.

They spent the first half hour on the wedding party and the last hour is jumping ahead years at a time from scene to scene :-?Oh please, the wedding scene was one of the great scenes in the history of the cinema. It established a large cast of characters to the point that they were instantly recognizable to the audience even if they did not appear again in the film for another hour or more. It was simply brilliant film making.

Agreed

The Godfather is one of the best films ever made. I watched it for the fourth or so time a few months ago and was yet again blown away. I appreciated it more than ever. It's flawless from start to finish and if you say otherwise, this is one of those rare instances where your opinion is just wrong.

Every single one of those movies possesses greatness to varying degrees, Kane on the upper end and Scarface on the lower.

Goodfellas is one of the best and most quotable movies ever made.

The Godfather is more drawn-out and takes a bit more attention-paying, so if you're ADD or something, watch Goodfellas.

Actually, I'm incredibly ADD. I can rarely, if ever, sit through a movie with a running time over two hours. And I'm absolutely hyp-mo-tized by The Godfather whenever I put it on.

I as well, but I quoted ZombieSpeedball.

He's of that nanosecond edited epilepsy-inducing Japanimation/TRL only showing 40 seconds of a video generation, so he might require viewing movies where the camera doesn't linger more than 10 seconds on a shot.

Not his fault, it's the liberal media as always.

it's poorly written, the acting is even worse (especially willem dafoe), and it's just all around bad. it's like someone with absolutely no talent tried REEEEEAAALLLY hard to be quentin tarantino.

Casablanca you'll enjoy. It's surprisingly well paced, and very funny. Specially the first hour, as we get to know the town. Really good acting, and one of the best characters in movie history (Renault).

Apocalypse Now is much more entretaining on its original cut. And it's one of those movies you see... and know it's really good. That the themes are complex, and that it says something. But that... You just don't feel like watching again.
