Movies you thought you'd seen...but haven't

Ben Hur - All I remembered of this movie from (sort of) seeing it as a kid, was that it was incredibly long. In fact, I recall (sort of) seeing it when I was maybe, 10, and falling asleep several times, only to wake up not entirely sure if I was watching the same movie or not. I always thought I'd seen it in it's entirety, but it's on TV as I write this, and I just realised I've never actually watched it from beginning to end. But I was right: it is incredibly long.

Any movies like this for you?

Not specifically, but I feel like I need to rewatch everything I saw only as a kid. This is both because I might not remember the movie, and also when I was a kid I just wanted to see stuff blow up and was bored by little things such as plot and pacing.

I give these movies "the adulthood test." Some pass, some fail. There's stuff like Pulp Fiction and Blade Runner which I found dull as a kid. Then there's stuff that I rewatched to death and can't stomach now, like most of Van Damme's & Segal's work. I was disappointed to rewatch No Escape and I couldn't make it 15 minutes in, I used to love that one.
+1. this is very interesting.
