Me too. Never been a fan of Westerns. I highly recommend The Usual Suspects, rented or just on tv, AMC had it last weekend again. Great cast, great lines. I even made a group "I am Keyser Soze"!

Well you got me beat by a lot. There are close to forty I haven't seen. The westerns and mysteries catagories ate my lunch.

There's maybe 15 out of this list of 100 that I haven't seen. I am a movie junkie and make no apologies for it!
