Shuk, I have to hand it to you, this is a terrific idea for a post (that I'll have to steal at some point).

The major ones (i.e. classics) I have in common with you: The Apartment, The Hustler, both Hamlets, The Great Dictator, The English Patient, DDA, Schindler's List, Singin' in the Rain, The Sound of Music, and Sunset Boulevard (though, unfortunately, not Sunset Park--shudder).

My most egregious omission is probably The Wizard of Oz.

The biggest shockers for me (all of which, I'm sorry, require elaboration): Twelve Mokeys, Toy Story II, Rocky IV, North by Northwest, Goonies, O Broher, Godfather II, Bull Durham, Bad News Bears.

In the words of Kyle Broflovski: "really??"

Wait a minute... you've never seen Aliens? or the Goonies? THE FREAKIN' GOONIES?!?!? Screw the old classics like Gone with the Wind. How can you not have caught the Breakfast Club on TBS at somepoint in the last 10 years?

I'm having a hard time believing this.
