I have seen Taxi Driver, woulda helped screencap it iif it wasn't done when I joined up. Good movie, it's hard to go bad with DeNiro-age Scorsese. Though I haven't seen Raging Bull

I loved Raising Arizona, The Big Lebowski, Fargo, O Brother Where Art Thou?, No Country For Old Men, Burn After Reading, True Grit, and yes, even The Ladykillers. I didn't really get Barton Fink or The Hudsucker Proxy but they were watchable.

I've seen The Big Lebowski, Fargo, No Country for Old Men, and a Serious Man. The only issue I have with them is that they don't have a signature feel, or look, to their work. With a lot of movies, you can tell who directed just by the way the film looks or feels. I never got that from the Coen Brothers. I don't know if that's a good or bad thing.

They alway have the same dark dry humor in their films that give me the feel of a Coens movie

The Hudsucker Proxy, Fargo, Millers Crossing, O' Brother Where Art Thou?, Barton Fink and The Ladykillers. My wife doesn't like them, but I find their movies interesting.

I'm now interested in Sam Mendes' work. Jarhead was badass and American Beauty makes you realize how beautiful life is.

I did not care for Jarhead. If you ask me, other films and such have done that sorta thing way better. Generation Kill, Hurt Locker. That sorta thing.

I didn't exactly love "Jarhead" as a movie, but I hated the book even more. It's another one of those examples of a movie being made from source material that is inherently weak. I think Sam Mendes deserves props as a director for doing the best he could with it.

Also, I liked "American Beauty", but let's face it - Mendes is not exactly sympathetic to American gun ownership, and that movie is a perfect example.
