    In this thread we discuss movies that everyone else seems "to get" except you. These movies are canonized into our pop culture and are either critically acclaimed, beloved by fans, or both. Except for you. You just don't get it.

    Wizard of Oz is one of the great ones. I can also understand why Gone with the Wind is considered great but it isn't one of my favorites.

    I think it appeals to some instinct in men that I must not have.
