    ^^^damn yea hitchcock and welles...third man is one of my favorites, and then vertigo would be in my top 20 more than likely
    i think farenheit 451 is the only truffaut movie i've seen...blasphemy i know
    howard hawks i don't know if i've seen any...the name sounds super familiar, i know he was like a 40s-50s era filmmaker...

    How can you not like Fargo?

    I completely forgot about Kubrick and Cronenberg, they'd be in the honorable mention category.

    John Woo


    Bushido is realised in the presence of death.
    This means choosing death whenever there is a choice between life and death.
    There is no other reasoning.

    King Kong was interminable.

    One of the worst films i've had the displeasure of seeing on the big screen in recent memory.

    ^^^
    sam peckinpah for sure...for straw dogs with dustin hoffman...and this western he did right before that was amazing...the name escapes me right now....

    you're the fist person to say speilberg lol...he should definitely be on all of our lists...granted he can occasionally go for the saccharine or commercialized...his overall filmography is credible...he deserves a spot for schindler's list, saving private ryan, color purple, close encounters, AI, raiders....
