QotD: Never Seen It
What's the most famous movie you've never seen?
Submitted by Mike.
I'd have to say E.T. is the biggest movie from my childhood that I never got to see. My mom thought it'd be too violent/troubling and barred me from seeing it. I think I was 10 or 11 and it was a weird decision because I had seen Rambo movies around that time as well (thanks to my cool uncle and the Rambo flicks did kind of scare me a bit). She also kept the TV off the night that nuclear war thing The Day After played. It was two weird things she really wanted to protect me from, even though I was old enough to handle both of them. E.T. didn't come out on VHS for years afterwards and by then I was a pissed off teenager that didn't care anymore.
In the past ten years I'd say Titanic was the biggest thing I missed. I just never had any desire to see it and then when it got really huge I definitely didn't want to see it. By 2007, it's a badge of honor.
