  1. I respect Clint Eastwood as an actor and director. Unforgiven (1992) is a great movie. But his film True Crime (1999) is so bad it's hard to believe he was involved with it. It is easily one of the worst films I have ever seen that was made by a major film director.
  2. I no particular order except Andrei Tarkovsky is number one. Andrei Tarkovsky - Nostalghia, Andrei Rublev Stanley Kubrick - Dr Strangelove, 2001 Krzysztof Kieslowski - Blue, White, Red, The Double Life of Veronique Satyajit Ray - Pather Panchali Michael Curtiz - Casablanca Steven Spielberg - Raiders of the Lost Ark, Jaws Martin Scorsese - The Last Temptation Of Christ, Goodfellas Oliver Stone - JFK, Nixon Billy Wilder 1-2-3 Woody Allen Annie Hall, The Purple Rose Of Cairo
  3. I don't know that I can name five movies that I really disliked. I have been forced to see movies I thought were going to be bad, but that's another thing. Here are some movies I had high hopes for and was let down. Jonathan Demme's, Philadelphia (1993) I was glad the subject matter was getting the star treatment and I think Hanks did an admirable job, but the courtroom drama and how it was resolved was a joke. Huge disappointment from an otherwise top-notch American director. The Coen brother's remake of The Ladykillers (2004). Again, film makers I much admire gone wrong. This mo
  4. It's a tie for the tops: Michael Curtiz' Casablanca (1942) and Andrei Tarkovsky's Nostalghia (1983). The inevitable honorable mentions: Oliver Stone's JFK (1991) and Nixon (1995) Stanley Kubrick's Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964) and 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) Billy Wilder's One, Two, Three (1961) Bruce Robinson's Withnail and I (1987) and many more...
  5. I don't know if it has been mentioned yet, but I will chime in with The Ernie Kovacs Show (1952). I watched the reruns as a kid and the surreal nature of his skits really made me think. Brilliant.
  6. The flawed but fascinating, Wim Wenders Until The End Of The World. It was shot all over the world.
  7. Another Woody Allen one... Well, I have to go now. I teach a class in ****. If I get there late they start without me. from Zelig
  8. This may be way off to some, but I think One, Two, Three is Wilder's masterpiece. And then any others in whatever order.
  9. Lawrence of Arabia and The Year Of Living Dangerously. Both of them composed by Maurice Jarre
  10. I like many of the films that people have listed so far. I'll add Bruce Robinson's Withnail and I (1985) a wonderful dark comedy about two actors who go on a holiday to the English countryside in the late 60's.
  11. Thanks for the info Ollie. And keep at those voodoo dolls, something will happen eventually.
  12. Thanks for the tip lzcutter. I am looking forward to watching these movies.
  13. Thanks CineMaven. The Horror Of Party beach comes in my NetFlix with another feature, The Curse of the Living Corpse. Looks like it's a horror double feature for me soon.
  14. Right-o Fred. What about Beach Blanket Bingo? I think I missed it on TCM this time around.
  15. The recent featuring of Natalie Wood really made an impression on me.
