Movie Journal140

I'm really passionate about the movies

This is a sequel to this thread: which was in sandbox. Technically there's another version of this thread in sandbox currently ( ), 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.

my 900th logged movie, according to letterboxd, is "A Woman Under the Influence," and it emotionally destroyed me.

Alfred Hitchcock best to worst

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

now i must take issue with this thread because 12 angry men was scientifically proven to be the best and most badass movie of all time

simple retort: dog day afternoon is 100% more gay

just saw Miller's Crossing, another banger by the Coen Brothers. the way they consistently churn out movies that i wholly adore???

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
Favorite movie of 2019? (since theaters haven't reopened yet)
