Default Iconic Movies you have NOT seen

My husband and I were at a Super Bowl party when he let it slip that I have never seen the Wizard of Oz. Now everyone is insisting that I watch it but I just do not have any intrest. Is there any iconic movies that you haven't seen or just have no real intrest in?

Edit to add:
1. Wizard of Oz
2. Casablanca
3. It's A Wonderful Life

Movies I never watched until I had kids:
Mary Poppins
Herbie the Love Bug
Tron
ET

not sure if they are iconic but I never watched "Titanic" or any of the "lord of the rings" "harry potter" and "twilight" movies. They do not look good to me, and they are too long. It is hard to sit and watch a 2.5 hour movie for me.

I haven't seen any of the Godfather movies or Scarface, they don't really seem like movies I would like so I have just never watched them.

I have only seen one Lord of the Rings and that was only because my husband had it on while we were decorating the Christmas tree. Thankfully, we have kids now and just listen to music. I have seen all the Harry Potters because my hubby and friends are obbsessed with the books and movies. I watched all but the last one in the theatre. I feel asleep during which ever one came out in 2007 because I just had chemo 2 days prior. I refuse to watch Twilight.

I worked at a movie theatre when Titanic came out. I can't stand that movie because of it. The hype was insane and it made people act a fool.

Bull Durham - seen parts but never the whole thing
Deliverance - co-workers referance it all the time but never saw it

Couple days ago my wife and I were watching Robot Chicken and this episode had a few skits about Back to the Future. My wife said she had never seen that movie and I was shocked.

Please please PLEASE do not consider Twilight an iconic movie! I watched the first move one time, and that was more than enough Twilight than I ever need.

I haven't seen the Godfather or The Goonies (I'm a child of the 80s too).

Would someone be able to post a list of the 100 greatest movies of all time, please? My work has it blocked for some reason. This will help us define "iconic".

Like I said I am not sure if it was iconic but that doesn't change the fact that is what you hear about. I am actually thinking of watching the first one just because the scenes at the school were filmed at the Kalama High School which is about 3 miles away from where I live.
