Movie Time

The prompt today from NaBloPoMo is "What classic movie have you never seen?".

Well, that's a big topic indeed for me.  I'm not a movie kind of girl. I don't hate them, but they aren't the sort of activity I jump up for.  I'm learning to enjoy sitting and watching, but I still have a little mental battle about the time suck factor of sitting and watching a movie.

I know, it's the same time suck, or less, than reading a novel, but somehow, it's just not the same. 

I'm also not sure exactly what constitutes a "classic movie".  I suppose I could go Google it, but frankly, I have to drive kids to sports in 10 minutes and I just don't care what movies are classic and which ones aren't.

I'll list a few for you and you can fill the comment boxes with disbelief over movies I haven't seen.  I'm betting there aren't too many you'll ask me if I've seen that I'll be able to say, sure, of course I've seen that one. 

That's just the way I am. 

And I like me this way.

I did end up having to Google because I see so few movies I couldn't create a list of titles of movies I haven't seen.  I checked out the AFI 100 Classic Movie list.  I've seen roughly 15 of those movies. 

Your turn.  Ask away.  I love to hear the "have you seen this movie question".  I really do.  Besides, I wonder what you think is a "classic" film.
