When you no longer have anything in common with a friend

I''ve been friends with this person for 10 years, although we''ve always disagreed on cultural things. A good friend, cares about me to an extent, but has made a goal of watching all of the 100 AFI best movies ever and it has exposed a rift that was always there. It has made me wonder if we have anything in common.\ \ The reviews from my friend on movies that I consider sacrosanct and a litmus test for cultural intelligence:\ \ Citizen Kane - immediately bored. not open to discussion. \ \ The Godfather - bored. too slow. (mind you this is one of a pair of movies I consider the best ever produced in this country)\ \ Nashville - Awful. Couldn''t watch it.\ \ Sunrise - "its best to watch all silent movies in fast forward. you get the idea"\ \ The friend claimed to have watched 70% of the list and could not name one movie that was worth commenting on. \ \ This is a dead end, right? To me its like sharing a favorite book with someone and having them say it was pointless, boring and I don''t really care.
