I was talking to a friend who recently discovered that the girl he’s been seeing has never seen the STAR WARS MOVIES. I know. Crazy. Who is this person?!
I can’t say that I don’t have my own pop culture gaps that make people claw at their faces in frustration when I tell them. I usually try to not bring But, as I trust you oh internet peoples, I’ll tell you. Just don’t make me feel too bad, k?
The Godfather…any of them.
Yep. An American classic with THREE MOVIES, and I haven’t seen any. It’s about mumbling old men right? And horse heads? Or something?
Yeah, not nearly as much of a classic as The Godfather, but it really pisses my children of the 90′s peers off that I haven’t seen it. You know, I feel like this is one that you HAVE to see as a kid…because it looks pretty terrible to my adult self. Mid-90′s Robin Williams as a man child? No. Nonononononono. But if I was ten again? yesyesyesyesyesyes.
Quentin Tarentino’s entire filmography…almost
So, I was going for the gold in having never seen a Tarentino film, and then I was finally worn down by a boy and made to watch Pulp Fiction. That was last spring. Hey, I made it to almost 27 without seeing any of them! Pretty darn good!
This comes up mostly on dates. I swear. Guys constantly want to reference Kill Bill, or they ask if I’ve seen Django Unchained. Inglorious Basterds? Reservoir Dogs?! You’re SURE you haven’t seen ANY of the Kill Bill movies?!?!?!
Nope, and I don’t particularly plan to. But hey! I saw Pulp Fiction! What more do you want?! Geez Louise.
Look at me go. Blowing guys’ minds. All the time.
(I would like to thank Tarentino for saving my favorite LA movie theater, The New Bev. Stand up thing to do!)
I can’t be the only one? Fess up! What are your big pop culture blind spots?
