    Now that one surprises me. Unless you are of the younger generation when it's only been on NBC once a year. Before NBC got that exclusive deal, it was on non-stop throughout the Christmas season on one channel or another and pretty hard to miss.

    I've never seen the Matrix. And many more that people label as "must-watch". Sometimes it's a bit annoying because when a group of friends starts ranting about some movies that everybody knows I might as well go and leave them for a half hour :D

    Star Wars series
    Die Hard series
    Matrix series
    Schindler's List

    I've seen Shawshank in portions. I don't think I've seen it from start to finish.

    I counted 47 on the list of 75, but I may have seen a few more than that, I just can't remember.

    Original Die Hard and original Matrix are definitely worth a watch. I can understand how if you just aren't into Star Wars that it just won't appeal like it does for those that grew up on it.
