38. Aaltra (2004)
This is here because, aside from wanting to see it, I own the dvd for quite some time, and have even gotten as far as pressing play.



by now.

50 movies (update needed! 7 gone :) need to add other 7) that have been on my waiting list forever or/and are huge classics.
Just 50 examples as there are, of course, a lot more movies that I really want to see (like my over 500 "wanted" list on listal suggests!).
And there are more that are quite unforgivable, like other CLASSICS with classic actors and golden actresses, others by directors mentioned here, a bunch of HORROR movies,... and much much more.

You must be about 10 years old if you haven't seen any of these!
Posted: 4 years, 6 months ago at Oct 9 11:57
In case you didn't know, you can watch/download many old films, e.g. Battleship Potemkin, on this page (free+legal):

Suphiah e Diabolical dr voodoo: definitivamente! :)
Shaun: haha, right... Although I know a lot of people not only my age but older that don't even know the majority of these films.
Bob: thanks for the tip! public domain - that is interesting; but Battleship Potemkin is not there.

A lot of films you definitely must see on here. Make Nosferatu a priority, it is an absolute classic! A lot of those I am appalled at myself for not seeing too. As a matter of fact, I only saw Apocalypse Now yesterday lol

"A lot of those I am appalled at myself for not seeing too" Right! Appalled is a good word for it. And I have even more chocking films, unseen, in my Directors to Explore list!
