    Who is the Best Director of All-Time?

    John Ford is my favorite.
  2. This thread reminds me of how Leonard Maltin gave Night And The City (1950) a 2.5 star rating. I consider it a masterpiece, and I know it is a beloved noir, so his score surprised me.
  3. My vites, off the top of my head... Actor: Robert De Niro in Taxi Driver (1976) Actress: Bette Davis in Now, Voyager (1942)

    Quentin Tarantino

    I enjoy all of Tarantino's films except for Django Unchained and The Hateful Eight. I have not seen either since they were in theaters, so I will certainly watch them again at some point. I did not like how they both just turn into cartoonish gorefests in the latter halves. Seemed so childish and uninteresting to me. My favorite film of his would probably be Jackie Brown or Kill Bill (if I can count both volumes together as one film). An interesting tidbit about Tarantino, especially regarding his affinity for westerns, is that he is on record saying that he hates John Ford because he felt that Ford was a racist. That comment made me roll my eyes so hard that they came unscrewed, popped out, and rolled across the floor.

    Why do some classic movie fans bash newer films?

    I can't live without a daily dose of Myrna Loy.

    I Just Watched...

    M (1931) Slow procedural bookended by two excellent scenes. I made the mistake of going in believing the film would be about Lorre's child killer character. The final 15 minutes could stand alone as an excellent short film.

    Hottest Teen Idols

    We shall see. Sidenote: I love your avatar picture. Scarlet Street is probably in my top 10 favorite films.

    Hottest Teen Idols

    I'll bump this one up on my watchlist. I love Bill Wellman and Franchot Tone.

    Hottest Teen Idols

    I watched The Squall (1929) yesterday, and was struck by how beautiful Loretta Young was in the film. She was only 15 or 16 when the film was made.
