Just haven't gotten around to it. It should be at the top of my queue - I'll have to check if Netflix even has it on disc. Every time I hear the famous movie quotes, I feel like I'm culturally illiterate.

Just one among, many from that film. I think I read the script? Now that you brought it up, I might revisit it, since its been a while.

Go to your library. If it has any DVDs, it should have Casablanca. If not ask them to get it. The DVD will probably have extra including commentaries and The making of" featurettes. While you are at it, look for several other Bogart classics, like Maltese Falcon, To Have and Have Not, Treasure of the Sierra Madre, and African Queen.

I was totally riveted by Dances With Wolves the first time I saw it. (The full 4 hour version,) Next time it was the shortened version. That one did nothing for me. Last year I read the book. Wow! And saw that the author penned a perfect character for Kevin Costner to play; to the "T". Amazing that he didn't even know who Costner was when he wrote it. I loved that Native Americans were cast as real people, not caricatures. Though, I understand that they were Apache or Sioux, nor Comanche as so few Comanche survived.

Die Hard. I fessed up to that this past weekend when it was playing at a local arthouse, and my wife almost dragged me out to see it but we, well, didn't.

I had no idea. I knew 1, 4, and 39. I'm sure the screenwriter was proud. But they cheated, #1 is listed twice.

The conversation started with her 'admitting' she hadn't seen it since in the theater when it came out, so I have only barely seen it less than her...

That's OK, Rick (Bogie) said it at least twice to Ilsa (Bergman) in the movie.

Finally watched it last weekend. Rented on Amazon. Have to say, it looked incredible on the big screen tv. The lighting in the film was awesome.

Hard to believe it was made in the middle of WW2.

"The Human Centipede 5". 1-4 were tolerable, but it seems like the franchise is just getting repetitive at this point.

I watched movies more before internet, when I was biking to video stores. One chain still exists here, but it never had a great selection. Most libraries still have DVDs. Movies may be easier to stream online, but I don't feel inclined to sit through an entire movie now. I mostly read.

All the classic holiday flicks, Black Narcissus, Metropolis, 400 Blows, Charlton Heston on a chariot, Deer Hunter, Bridge on the River Kwai, etc.

Apocalypse Now and Blade Runner.

Tried both multiple times but cannot help falling asleep. It’s entirely possible I’ve now seen all of both, but in out-of-sequence non-contiguous bits. Can’t be sure though. Try again to figure it out and fall asleep in.a different bit ...and repeat.

Personally I terribly have fallen out of the actual flow and haven't seen most of the epic films that are released nowadays.
I mean, I'd like to but I can't pick the time for films recently. Where do you get yours, guys?

I don't know about the others, but I set aside a specific time each week (typically the weekend) to either go to the movies, or at least download one to watch at home.

That said, I really have to be in a certain mood for those strong melodramas such as Gone With The Wind. It took me two days, but I finally made it through it, and was proud that I could now relate when someone opens the discussion.

I took a cinema appreciation class and studied film in school, and what you might think is a skate class or an easy A is far from it. Some of the movies they made us watch can be really, really trying to sit through.

Not only that, you don't just have to watch it, but write a paper (3-6 pages) on each one. I assure you "I liked/hated it", or just 5/10 won't cut it. Even worse when its a movie you absolutely hate, and that for me was half of them.

Thank goodness this list is not a so-called cinema appreciation class, and "I liked/hated it" does cut it quite well for many of us who appreciate movies, are free to choose movies that we are likely to enjoy, and don't have to take on airs to do it.

Thing is, you don't always know what you like until you've tried it first. There are a lot of movies and TV shows that I would never watched or thought I'd enjoy had I never taking those classes. Now I give them a chance, and can at least "appreciate" the effort, if not always the results.

That doesn't mean there's no such thing as a bad film. There most certainly are a lot of them, and a lot more people than just myself will attest to that.
