The Lyrics

There are plenty of classic and critically acclaimed movies that I have just never seen or felt the urge to see. Sure it kind of leaves me out of some conversations, I would rather right a parody tribute to those films. (I have legitimately not seen any of these movies (except for the ones I say I'd rather see)). Original Song
I’ve never seen The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
Love the movie Up
Not seen WALL-E (Wall-E, Wall-E, Wall-E)

My friends think I’m a fool...
Never seen Pulp Fiction
Never seen Schindler’s List
As well as Psycho!

And The Wolf of Wall Street
Not one that I’ve observed
I’d rather watch The Jerk...
Ace Ventura’s more for me
Hey hey

Harry Potter
I won’t try - no connection!
The movie U-H-F is more my type
I’m not sorry

Casablanca?
‘Fore my time...
It sounds boring
Give me the Blues Brothers or Men in Tights
‘Cause I know just what I like

“They’re great, don’t ya know?
Your faves aren’t any good
Just jokes about farts and wood…”
Yeah, they’re great...so?!

Please promise not to bawl...
Won’t see Lord of the Rings
Four hours of elves walking?
Man, that just sounds no fun at all
No way!

The Godfather
Mobster guys… “It’s perfection!”
I’ve heard the “offer” line a million times
...think I’ve got it

Transformers
What’s to like?
Things exploding?
That cement truck become some robot guy
I won’t bother, not my type

Perhaps the biggest one I don’t know
You have to promise not to punch me...
I have never seen Star Wars
They fly around in space with R2D2?
Vader’s his dad...some guy named Chewbacca...
“Please watch it, it’s great!” But I won’t...but I won’t...

Just one Batman
Crossed my eyes
(The Dark Knight, just one time, it was fine)
Really not a superhero guy

But I’ve seen Fight Club, hey, will that suffice?
Can’t promise that I’ll see Rocky 5

Super Troopers
(Syrup time, Ramrod time, Chimpo time)
That and Beerfest are the ones I like

Come on, bud. Sit down, it is movie time!
(please don’t fight, this you’ll like, just one time)
We can watch The Room, I know you’ll like!
NOTE: "Men in Tights" refers to the Mel Brooks movie Robin Hood: Men in Tights.
NOTE2: The Room is referred to as one of the absolute worst movies of all time...but it's so bad, that it's good!

You've missed a lot of crap and you've seen a lot of crap. Be an informed consumer. Access imdb, Rotten Tomatoes, etc., for guidance, and plug into a world of cinematic delight.

As a film buff I liked all of the movies that you listed here and actually I've seen all of them except for Good, Bad and the Ugly (Not much of a Westerns fan but I liked True Grit and Django Unchained), Also never seen Schindler's List and like you I have no interest in that one either but to be fair from the movies you've seen I've never seen The Jerk. I can totally relate to this parody as well because my girlfriend hasn't seen a lot of movies either and I always give her a hard time about it.

It can happen, you can know about the movie due to the pop culture references made and yet not seen it as well. Thanks to Netflix, I can watch some of the ones listed in the parody I haven't seen. With that said, Space Odyssey 2001 have been referenced countless times and yet I wonder how many people even managed to sit through it completely? It wasn't until HAL starts killing people that the movie begins to get going.

(Artistry) I'm also a huge movie buff and I have seen all of these movies, whether or not I like them all doesn't really matter. I can understand this spoof, when you're a big movie person, and the people around you aren't happens to me quite a lot. It's frustrating for everyone really. Very relatable. However, I didn't find a lot of humor in this. I nodded and said to myself, "Yeah, I get this," but I never really laughed at all. The pacing and execution was great, I just didn't find it all that funny. Just kind of true to life. Sorry.

All points by Blaydeman agreed. Pulp Fiction would be your liking, based on the rest of your lyrics.

(Artistry) I also concur with B-Man. The writing was fantastic, it just didn't "click" with me. Kinda like the movies you don't wanna watch! Link! I also haven't seen a lot of stuff, but not because everyone wants me to and I can't be buggered. I just have trouble finding the motivation to watch stuff I haven't yet. Though I did finally watch all of Mythbusters recently...it's a slow process.
