Popular movies you've never seen

Inspired by a piece in the tv-cream film guide mail, what popular movies have you never seen? From any era, any genre. Not through any sort of movie snobbery or anything like thing, just felt from watching clips or reading reviews that it wouldn't be your cup of tea, or missed it completely in the cinema and in the video shop and just can't be bothered.

Myself, I've never seen The Matrix movies (although I have played the game), any of the Star Warseses, and managed to miss Lord of the Rings trilogy until last Xmas when a friend of mine brought them around to my house and sat me down to watch them. I've also never seen an 80s brat pack movie (St Elmo's Fire, Breakfast Club, etc) and somehow events have colluded against me ever having seen a Police Academy movie.

Interesting thread. Funnily enough I was thinking about this very idea only a few days ago when I saw Taxi Driver for the first time. I'm a really big DeNiro fan but was too young when it was first released and they never seem to show it on tv. I never really bothered to rent it because I had a feeling I wouldn't like it because it is put on such a pedestal. However, I really enjoyed it and was totally different to what i expected.

A film everyone seems to go on about is Usual Suspects, whenever its on tv its 45 mins or so into it by the time I realise its on. A film I always mean to see though. Another would be the Aliens Series.

You're not missing anything.

The Matrix Revolutions
Kill Bill 2

Mostly because The Matrix Reloaded was pants compared to The Matrix (which, let's face it, really is fantastic) and Kill Bill was possibly the most over-hyped film of all time and just kind of sucked.
