I’ve seen seven. Or have I?
I’ve actually never seen Casablanca. All the rest though yes.
I’ve seen 9 of these films at least half a dozen times each. I don’t know where I have ever found the time with all the new films I watch. The Great Escape wasn’t very good so i’ve never returned to it.
I’m surprised Citizen Kane isn’t on this list. But I suppose it’s not as popular among mainstream viewers as those ones.
I can see pretending you’ve seen Godfather or Casablanca, but Reservoir Dogs? It’s not a hard movie to sit through if you’re into Tarantino’s style, and it’s not something anyone would be embarrassed not to have seen.
Why would anyone lie about having seen a movie? Seems kind of adolescent to be so insecure about oneself.
How is Bicycle Thieves not on here?
i might pretend to see berlin alexanderplatz…J/K! yes this seems very silly
Amazingly, I’ve seen every one. Some too many times to count.
Now, there are films I wish I could pretend to have seen, simply to have not had to have sat through them in the first place.
If you’re going to pretend to have seen something, surely you should go more ambitious than this list: London After Midnight, John Ford’s The Secret Man, the complete Greed, Welles’ version of Ambersons. etc.?
I haven’t seen The Great Escape but I’m pretty sure I DID the great escape on #2 by shutting it off half way thru.
So I guess Reality indicates that I’ve seen eight of those ten.
Why someone would lie about seeing a movie is beyond me. I think I am a true blue film buff (aspire to be a film aficionado) because if someone tells me about a film I haven’t seen, and they think it is one I might like, it inspires me to want to see the film, not lie about it and say that I already did.
I think most B/W films or silent films.
Like for example “City Lights”. To me these people are losing out BIG. :)
And yeah, the username above ^
i wish i could pretend not to have seen this.
