I will say Muslim comic books actually slow down extremism.

Also, I'm really into home theater and video collecting..I just find the subject fascinating, especially seeing what other people's likes and dislikes are. My personal faves, off the top of my head:

The Godfather I respect it for what it is but find it to be highly over-rated
Psycho Love it, CLASSIC!
The Manchurian Candidate Excellent
Taxi Driver Same answer as for Godfather
McCabe & Mrs. Miller been a long time, barely remember it but did like it at the time
The Last Picture Show not seen it, not interested in seeing it
Dr. Strangelove among my all-time favorites, one I upgraded from VHS>DVD>BLU
Goodfellas Same answer as for Godfather, I don't enjoy ganster movies
West Side Story hate it
The Searchers don't like it
Sweet Smell of Success haven't seen it
The Apartment haven't seen it, nor interested

Just a reprieve from all the heavy topics and often acrimony on here...

Nobody said that at all. You're imagining things.
I have 2 of his films on that random favorites list above.

Sure, it is good to have a black Super Hero movie, but my problem is why not have a movie about peace? Another movie with violence making you a hero. Peace sells but who's buying?

MLK is a hero. It might be good but blah.

Even Dr King swung when it got to be too much

I loved "Seven Samurai ", "Rashomon", and "High and Low"
Other foreign faves : "La Dolce Vita", "Jules and Jim", "The Conformist ", "Blow Up" (though technically in English)

B movies : "They Live by Night " (and the Altman remake "Thieves like us"), "The Set-Up", "The Killing ", "Out of the Past", "The Phoenix City Story".

If you love "A Face in the Crowd " , like I do, you probably would really like "Sweet Smell of Success "

And too many others: "Midnight Cowboy ", "Silence of the Lambs", "Carnal Knowledge", "The Wild Bunch", "Straw Dogs", "Vertigo", "High Noon", "Terminator 1 & 2", " A Hard Days Night ", "Tootsie ", "This is Spinal Tap", "From Here to Eternity ", "The Third Man", "Kill Bill 1 & 2", "Dog Day Afternoon ", "Bonnie and Clyde", "One, Two, Three", "Love in the Afternoon ", "One Eyed Jacks", "Raging Bull", "Some Came Running ", "The Incredibles", "Toy Story 1,2,3", "His Girl Friday ", "It's a Wonderful Life ", "Do the Right Thing ", "Les Gals", "Bridge on the River Kwai", "The Producers", "The Great Race ", " The Deer Hunter ", "2001 A Space Odyssey ", "The Asphalt Jungle ", "Goldfinger", and 100s more

Lot of great ones there, and some I don't care for. Many I would add to my list.

You like Antonioni's Blow Up, do you like De Palma's Blow Out?

Haven't seen Sweet Smell Of Success, but Face In The Crowd is an all-time fav so maybe I'll seek it out.

^^ I like Djs list of movies.

I'm thinking the Black Panthers looks like another superhero movie. I will pass for Netflix. I will be interested in Passion of the Christ 2 and hope they make a 3. I can't wait for the Star Wars Solo film.

I think we can all collectively say.

I really liked "Blow Out". However, I found Coppola's "The Conversation" a better take-off (or homage) to "Blow-Up".

Probably my favorite directors are Kubrick, Hitchcock, Scorsese, and Billy Wilder.

I'm not a big fan of modern "blockbuster films"- I can enjoy a lot of them, but I find them too predictable sometimes. I'm probably more into films like "Chinatown" or "Apocalypse Now" or "The French Connection"

The only two white actors in Black Panther are Martin Freeman, who played Bilbo Baggins, and Andy Serkis who played Gollum.

They are the Tolkien white guys.

The Godfather I respect it for what it is but find it to be highly over-rated



I do not know who said it but that is worst than the time Peter Griffin was drowning in his safe room...

Anyone for banning the AR15 must be on the side of the criminal as once banned only criminals will have them.

I said it. I think it's a great film (from a film geek perspective) but I just don't care. Same with Goodfellas. Now Apocalypse Now, I just don't like.

I'm not dissing "every great film". I mentioned dozens that I love.

Why would you care if I don't enjoy three CLASSIC films, especially when I am acknowledging an understanding that they are great films that are essential viewing for any serious movie fan?

That's hilariously hypocritical coming from a "non-conformist" such as yourself. lol

Since the movie's 'black' characters are portraying an African ethnic group and a lot of the main characters are specific Ethnic African groups. Let's give Martin and Andy a little freedom from race too, call Martin an Ethnic Brit, and Andy a mix Armenian/Brit wink
