I haven't and my DP thinks I am the only person who hasn't - I beg to differ...!

Saw for 1st time yesterday

I doubt I’ve ever watched it all the way through.

fblake Sat 19-Dec-20 20:43:19

Did you like it? I've never fancied watching it by my DP insists I should. I have also never watched Ghost, don't fancy that either 🤷‍♀️

I have never watched Ghost either but have seen Home Alone. Home Alone 2 is better though

HavelockVetinari Sat 19-Dec-20 20:45:03

As long as you've seen Die Hard it's fine

Coriandersucks Sat 19-Dec-20 20:45:03

I’ve seen home alone - well bits of it - but never seen love actually which is a constant source of amusement to my friends

@Coriandersucks you're not missing out...

I haven't seen it or any of the sequels. I haven't seen Elf or Die Hard either.

Ragwort Sat 19-Dec-20 20:48:16

No, never seen it. Or Die Hard, Ghost, Harry Potter, Star Wars, The Snowman, Love Actually etc etc.

Have sat through the Polar Express which bored me to tears.

I do like watching films, but lots just don't appeal. grin.

Me. Never seen lots of popular films though, Ghost, Dirty Dancing, Die Hard, any James Bond, I'm not a big film watcher.

I've never watched Home Alone but oddly enough DD (6) started quizzing me about it earlier this week and desperately wants to watch it. No idea why. I've also never watched ET which causes some people to gasp in amazement and sorrow.

HadEnoughOfBears Sat 19-Dec-20 20:52:46

I haven't

ExpensivelyDecorated Sat 19-Dec-20 20:52:57

Never seen ET either.

YewandOak Sat 19-Dec-20 20:53:42

Me! Don't even know what it's about.

Popcornismandatory Sat 19-Dec-20 20:54:22

Me and don't want to watch it either

june2007 Sat 19-Dec-20 20:54:29

Not seen it all, only clips never appealed to me.

AnneLovesGilbert Sat 19-Dec-20 20:55:50

You’re not missing anything.

The only people who like it watched it for the first time as children.

ET is great, saw that when I was in my thirties.

Star Wars is also pretty rubbish. And incesty. Which isn’t cool.

cakeandchampagne Sat 19-Dec-20 20:55:58

I’ve never seen it.

CathyorClaire Sat 19-Dec-20 21:00:56

Seen it. Once is enough.

Adult ds informed me recently he's never seen 'Back To The Future'. That boy is not my son...

ComtesseDeSpair Sat 19-Dec-20 21:03:03

I haven’t. My parents probably thought it was American rubbish when I was a kid and now I’m an adult without kids and it’s not really the kind of movie you watch as a childfree adult, is it? I vaguely know it’s about a boy accidentally left at home by his family when they go on holiday and he outwits some burglars. I think. And it happens at Christmas. I think.

TheCountessofFitzdotterel Sat 19-Dec-20 21:04:36

Saw for first time a week ago! It was fun though ds2 thinks Kevin is a psychopath.

Gingaaarghpussy Sat 19-Dec-20 21:12:14

I watched it donkeys yonks ago when it first came out. Seen the die hard films once. Went to the cinema for ghost. Never seen love actually. Tried watching the Harry Potter films, but as there is so much missing compared to the books, I'd rather read the books again.

My DP wants to watch it with my DS and says I should watch it with them. I'm not looking forward to it 😑

fblake Well don't watch it then, you are not a child who has to do what your parent tells you! Can't believe a grown adult would make themselves sit through a film they didn't want to see .... could just about understand if it your DS didn't have anyone to watch with and you wanted to be really nice, but surely he can just watch it with up his Dad?
