QotD: Never Seen It

What's the most famous movie you've never seen? 
Submitted by Mike.

According to IMDB's top 250 movies as voted by their users, I must live in a cave because there are plenty of those that I haven't seen.  And I'm just that dorky that I'd post them all. 🙂

1.                     The Godfather - I know the premise, but I haven't seen it.

2.                     The Shawshank Redemption  - Great flick.  One of the few Stephen King stories that transferred well to the screen.

3.                     The Godfather: Part II – Didn't see the first, why go to the second?

4.                     The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King – I think I've seen this, but they all get mixed up to me.

5.                     Buono, il brutto, il cattivo, Il  – The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.  I was brought up on Clint/

6.                     Casablanca  – Play it again, Sam, because I missed the whole movie.

10.                 Shichinin no samurai – I'm sorry, what?

11.                 One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest  – On my list to see.  After all, it's classic Nicholson.

13.                 Rear Window  – A little before my time, but I've heard it referenced.  Maybe one day.

14.                 The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring – I've probably seen parts of this one too.
