I'm really passionate about the movies
This is a sequel to this thread: https://epicmafia.com/topic/87947 which was in sandbox. Technically there's another version of this thread in sandbox currently ( https://epicmafia.com/topic/94705 ), but most of my friends today frequent main lobby so I felt the need to make it here as well!
Basically I hope this'll be a space for people to talk about movies they watch. I'm going to list some films I've seen, and probably also post some takes them.

Psycho > Vertigo > North by Northwest > Rear Window > Strangers on a Train > Shadow of a Doubt > Dial M For Murder > The Birds > Rope
(haven't seen Rebecca, Notorious, To Catch a Thief)
Dog Day Afternoon > 12 Angry Men > Network > Serpico
my current Coen Brothers best to worst:
Inside Llewyn Davis > The Big Lebowski > No Country for Old Men > Burn After Reading > Fargo > Blood Simple > A Serious Man > Barton Fink > O Brother, Where Art Thou > Miller's Crossing > The Ballad of Buster Scruggs > True Grit > Hail, Caesar!
bear in mind that i love all of these movies, save for maybe Hail Caesar which i still mostly like. i have yet to see Hudsucker's Proxy, Raising Arizona, The Man Who Wasn't There, Intolerable Cruelty, and The Ladykillers though, so we'll see where the ranking goes from there. safe to say they're probably my favorite filmmakers honestly, just based on the sheer amount of movies by them that are completely up my alley
