Popular / highly regarded movies that I have never seen, and in most cases, have no desire to ever see. These are just the ones that I can think of off the top of my head...

Back to the Future, Mad Max, Braveheart, Chinatown, Easy Rider, There Will Be Blood, No Country For Old Men, Fargo, American Beauty, The Good The Bad and The Ugly, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Schindler's List, It's A Wonderful Life, The Sound of Music, Up, Apocalypse Now, Platoon, Saving Private Ryan, Lord of the Rings, Avatar

2013 EDIT: I have now seen Pixar's Up, but still nothing else from this list.


  1. Martin I'm a friend of yours who has chosen to remain anonymous for the purposes of not wanting to be too Gay. Your blog is excellent, you are a very funny and natural writer and I am jealous of your ability. You've had me laughing out loud quite frequently, and some of your musings are very interested o read generally. You're a lovely bloke and it comes across in this blog. All the best, your mate.

  2. There are a few real tragedies on this list - namely: American Beauty, Up, and Lord of the Rings. Some of the The rest, I'm okay with. ;)

  3. I'm a huge Tolkien fan and so I like LOTR. I think the movies are also not bad. I don't mind Back to the future too. but I agree with you on the rest of the movies.
