21 Blockbuster Movies People Admitted They Never Saw

Sharing is caring!

Nobody’s got time to see every movie, and beyond that we all have our own individual tastes. So at some point, there’s going to be some great movies we miss. Sometimes it just doesn’t matter how great a movie is or how well it’s advertised, you’re just not interested. (We get it.)

So we’re pulling together some blockbuster movies that some of us just haven’t seen. If you’ve been hiding one of these as your guilty secret, now you know you’re not alone. There’s a whole bunch of internet people with you, and they’re even willing to admit it!

1. Avatar (2009)

It’s been 13 years, and many people avoided seeing Avatar. This film follows the popular trope that in the distant future, Earth’s resources are exhausted, and humans are taking their resources from space. Naturally, they encounter another race (the Na’vi) who are taller than humans, and live in harmony with their natural habitat instead of exploiting it. A human spy is sent to infiltrate them for information, but things get complicated when he falls in love with one of the Na’vi, and then the humans declare war. 

2. E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial (1982)

Many people were guilty of not watching this classic four decades after its release. Some users couldn’t believe others hadn’t watched it at all, and some were more understanding. But the consensus seemed to be that although the plot and story aren’t incredible, it’s a great story to watch when you need something nostalgic and low-key on a quiet evening.

3. The Godfather (1972)

A surprising number of people have never watched Francis Ford Coppola’s masterpiece, The Godfather. This one is a known classic, and it’s an excellent example of film-making. If you’ve never seen this, we suggest adding it to your to-watch list! The Godfather is not one to miss.

4. Dirty Dancing (1987)

This film is almost forty years old, and it’s developed a fan-base of its own. In the early 60’s, Frances is on vacation with her family at a resort, where she falls in love with one of the dance instructors. Despite all its popularity, some of us have just never seen this film, and given the number of classics that others have missed, we think that’s pretty excusable.

5. The Star Wars Skywalker Saga (9 Films)

Who doesn’t know about Star Wars? According to Reddit, thousands of people. One person admitted, “The Star Wars fan base is so over-the-top it makes me have zero interest in becoming involved.” There are plenty of mixed opinions about Star Wars as a whole. There’s everything from the sold-out fans who’d defend anything Star Wars makes to the ones who refuse because there’s just too much hype and they’re irritated with the cultural pressure. 

6. Titanic (1997)

Many people confessed to putting it off, believing it was a cheesy romance.

Still, one alleged, “Titanic does live up to its hype and will make even grown men cry.”

Though at this point, with the number of memes, gifs, and general cultural knowledge, you almost don’t need to watch Titanic to have a fair idea what happens during the movie. 

7. Marvel Movies

Thousands of people confessed to never watching or having a desire to watch anything from the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). One explained, “I’ve never been into superheroes,” and many others agreed with that sentiment. We’ll agree that if you’re into superheroes, there was definitely more appeal when there was only an average of one movie per superhero. Now that they’ve all got sequels and collaborative videos, etc., it’s gotten to be a bit overwhelming.

8. The Fast and Furious Movies

The Fast and the Furious franchise was heavily scrutinized for its declining quality. While some admitted to never watching any of the films, others praised the first two films. One elaborated, “The first two films in this series were good, but after they went from underground car culture to drivers saving the world, they lost their unique selling proposition.” Seems like a fair observation. 

9. The Sound of Music (1965)

Despite winning the Academy Award for Best Picture, many people did not incline to watch the classic, The Sound of Music. However, several of Julie Andrew’s fans suggested that “it’s a delight. You should watch it and form your own opinion.” The story is of an aspiring nun given the responsibility of seven motherless children whom she wins over with her kind and happy nature.

10. Spiderman: Into the Spider-Verse (2018)

Finally, people confessed to never watching Spiderman: Into the Spiderverse, causing quite a stir. One user volunteered, “If you’re reluctant to watch it because it’s animated, let me tell you – it will be an incredible two hours of your life. It is a refreshing style of animation combined with a fantastic story. And shout out to Post Malone for ‘Sunflower.’ It’s an incredibly catchy song.”

11. Twilight (2008)

When Twilight came out, almost every teen girl saw it at least once. And odds are, if you didn’t catch it while the first movie or the sequels were being released, you probably haven’t seen this one. It’s famous (and sometimes infamous), and there don’t seem to be a lot of neutral people about the topic of the Twilight movies. But if you’ve never seen it and you decide to go for it, let us know!

12. The Notebook (2004)

Although it’s only been out for about twenty years, this film has become a staple romantic drama. That said, if you’re not into romantic movies, you’re probably not going to love this one, so it makes sense that there’s a set of people who’ve never seen it. Still, the way that The Notebook is framed with the same couple in their sunset years, together in assisted living, adds a layer of romance to this one.

13. Frozen

It’s hard to believe there are people who’ve never watched the movie Frozen. Most of us who didn’t watch it when it came out have at least seen it now that we’re grown up with little girls of our own. But if you made it through without ever watching this movie, then maybe you have some sort of film super-strength. More power to you!

14. The Shawshank Redemption (1994)

The Shawshank Redemption tells the story of mistaken life-sentences, prison corruption, bullying, and eventually redemption. It’s been out for about thirty years now, and it’s beginning to make its way into the classics. We’ve gotta say that although it’s not an easy movie to watch, it’s a good one, and if you haven’t seen it, you should add it to your list.

15. Inside Out (2015)

Ah, the classic Pixar film that’s all about emotions. While you can’t take this one as a psychological textbook (i.e. it’s not clinically accurate,) it offers such a delightful take on the process of emotions and the quirks of how brains and memories work. Trust us: if you haven’t seen this movie, you should.

16. Gone With the Wind (1939)

This has been a famous movie almost since it was first made. It’s a classic story of the deep south at the time of the civil war, a story of love, stubbornness, grief, survival, and hope. If you have enough time to watch it and really get into it, this movie cuts deep. Even with all that, there are people who’ve never seen it, and given how old it is, we can’t exactly blame them.

17. High School Musical (2006)

This movie was made for a very specific audience and if you weren’t the right age in 2006 when the first movie came out, there’s a pretty good chance you haven’t seen High School Musical. But that said, if you were in middle or high school when it came out, you had to have some stamina to hear everyone talking about this film without seeing it yourself. This film is pretty much exactly what it sounds like: a musical about high school; complete with competition, pettiness, romance, drama, sports, and of course musical theater. So if you’re craving a light, fluffy movie on a rainy day, maybe it’s time to finally catch up on this one.

18. Casablanca (1942)

Casablanca is legendary at this point, and if you’ve never seen it, odds are ten to one that you’ve at least heard of it. Despite all that, it was produced at least eighty years ago, and it’s vintage if ever anything was. The mere fact of its age doesn’t mean it’s any less worth watching though. This film is a World War II romance adventure set in Morocco, and it tells the story of the sacrifices people will make for love.

19. It’s a Wonderful Life (1946)

It’s a Wonderful Life is not only a vintage film like Casablanca, but it’s become a staple Christmas movie and just a general tradition. Hard as it is to believe, some of us still haven’t seen this one! This film is the beautiful story of a man named George who gave up his dreams of seeing the world to save his brother, his family business, and eventually he benefited nearly everyone in his town in some way or another. Despite George’s grief and depression at the struggles he faces and the life he’s given up, the community he loves comes around him to remind him what a wonderful life he has, and has given others.

20. Inception (2010)

Inception is a film that layers dreams within dreams, but with a twist: you could get lost in a limbo dream-land, and dying might wake you up or send you to limbo. In order for the dream world to work, you’ve got to have a tell; some sort of token that functions one way within a dream and differently in real life. Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) uses his wife’s tell, a top that in the dreamworld, spins indefinitely. If that seems insignificant … just watch the film and you’ll never get that top out of your head again. And if you’ve never seen it, well that’s one less thing living rent-free in your brain.

21. Lord of the Rings (2001)

Lord of the Rings became a classic from the moment it was produced, and it still retains a cult following. If you’ve never seen it, then there’s a distinct possibility you’re not into sci-fi at all. As far as we can tell, these movies are as popular now as they were when they came out, and for good reason. Peter Jackson did some incredible directing for these films, and they’re a genuine piece of art. If you’re at all interested in the epic journey in the battle of good versus evil in Middle Earth, then don’t miss these movies.
