Movies I Haven’t Seen

The All-Time Movies That I Have Never Seen

In that past when it has come up in a conversation that I haven’t seen a specific movie, it usually turns into a game of which other timeless classic or all-time great have I not seen. Most of them, I probably wouldn’t mind seeing, while others are ones that I’m just not interested in.

For fun, I have documented such movies. This list isn’t definitive. I’ll add to it as I think of more, while crossing off any that I do eventually watch.

For whatever it’s worth, I started this list on March 31, 2009 (at age 24). Any movie seen before then would not count (i.e. I didn’t see the original three “Star Wars” movies until 2004, so while I technically went my entire childhood without seeing the franchise, it wouldn’t count for this list ).

  • 2001: A Space Odyssey
  • Airplane
  • Alien (nor any of the sequals)
  • All the President’s Men (want to see – renewed interest in the premise as of Jan. 2021)
  • Back to the Future (nor any of the sequals)
  • Blazing Saddles
  • Braveheart

  • Fight Club
  • Ghostbusters (none of them)

    Seen in small dosages repeatedly, but not in its entirety. One of my wife’s all-time favorites so it’s on a lot in our home.
