Why I never watched it:
22 James Bond's movies and I didn't watch any of them. Why? 'Cos I think he's the most sexist, braggart and vain character ever created.

Will I watch it someday?
Nah!

Why I never watched it:
Too long, too dramatic, too romantic. I mean, this three adjectives might be fine alone, but together they become a lethal mix.

Will I watch it someday?
No, blowing my nose while I watch a movie is something annoying.

Why I never watched them:
They seem to me too glamurous, like their only purpose was to bring together the most famous sex symbols.

Will I watch them someday?
I don't think so, it seems to much a fangirl flick.

and every other Batman film

Why I never watched them:
Honestly, I don't know why. When I was a child I used to watch a Batman serial on TV and I really enjoyed it. Maybe I got tired of "him" or maybe I find these films too spectacular than that naive TV show.

Will I watch them someday?
Everybody's suggesting me to watch it. I think I'll give it a chance.

Why I never watched it:
The book was interesting because talked a lot about Tibet and its traditions before the Chinese invasion but the story was very thin, so I thought it would be boring in a film-version. And Brad Pitt's expression on the poster stopped me from watching.

Will I watch it someday?
I'd rather read the book again.

Why I never watched them:
I watched the first Matrix many years ago and to be honest I don't remember why I didn't like it. But it was enough to keep me from watching the other two movies.

Will I watch them someday?:
I'll re-watch the first movie, and then I'll consider watching these.

Why I never watched them:
I was very young when I watched the first film and even then I thought a sequel was unnecessary.

Will I watch them someday?:
Mmh, I don't think so. Only in case I'd decide to watch the new film (but this is unlikely)

And I won't watch

Why I never watched them:
They don't attract me as well as I've never liked body-builders: too much of muscles and self-confidence take away the pleasure of imperfection.

Will I watch them someday?
Simply, no!

Why I never watched it:
Basically, I don't like this kind of videogames, and I don't like Angelina Jolie acting. Then, I read some reviews saying it's one of the worst movies ever. Three good reasons are enough for me.

Will I watch it someday?
Is it that awful? Maybe I'll check it. Or maybe not.

Why I never watched them:
I must confess: when I was a teen I used to watch Buffy the vampire slayer and followed the love story between Buffy and Angel. But now I'm too old for vampire hunting.

Will I watch them someday?
The more time passes the less I think I'll watch them.

Why I never watched it:
I can't help it, I dislike romantic comedies. And this seems to be the most romantic and most comic romantic comedy ever shot.

Why I never watched it:
People talk about this film like the most romantic movie ever made. And that's enough for me not to watch it.

If someone will ever be able to convince me that there is much more than kiss-kiss iluvu-iluvumore, I'll definitely watch it.

Why I never watched it:
I tried a little to read the book and it was crap. And since the movie is never better than the book...
In addiction, the trailer was ridiculous.

I know they're famous and sometimes are "must watch", but I always avoided to watch them.
