Paul Rudd is a better comedian than Ferrell and Stiller and picks better projects, at least I believe so.

-Outside of La Dolce Vita and 8½, I feel Fellini can be a bit uninspired. And even those two have greatly overlapping themes.
-Most lesser Bergman films are probably only worth a watch.
-Kubrick is great, if you discover him when you're 15. (2001 excepted... I might be a few short though)
-Hitchcock films can be entertaining plot-wise, but I agree with Drew that their psychological undercurrents are wafer-thin in actual substance.
-I probably should care about names like Almodovar, Zhangke, Inarritu and so on, but I dont. Just... don't.
-John Ford is talented with composition, but wholly uninteresting in every other way.
-The Discreet Charm Of The Bourgeoisie is mediocre. (also Hiroshima Mon Amour, Pather Panchali, Pan's Labyrinth and more)
-Kaurismäki is good, but not a genius. (oh, I've heard it said)
-lol, Godard.

This is shockingly true. How do you feel about Mean Streets though?

Hitchcock is better at showing psychological states of his characters more than Bergman ever was

boom

I don't think Scorsese has ever really made a bad movie.

Well except maybe Boxcar Bertha or New York New York, neither of them I've seen.

I've never thought Mufasa's death was all that sad, or at least I have never cried any time I've seen it despite The Lion King being my favourite animated film.

Here's a few I've come up with for now:

The score to The Third Man is somewhat inspired but fails miserably. Doesn't help that the film is a total bore.
The Star Wars prequels are not terrible films.
Harvey Keitel's performance in Bad Lieutenant is pretty bad (especially when he cries... good God)
Peter Jackson's King Kong is superior to the original.
Husbands and Wives is no doubt Woody Allen's best film.
The first Terminator is better than the second.
Inland Empire is better than Mulholland Drive.
Dr. Stranglove is horribly outdated and terribly unfunny.

And for the horror fans...
The Howling is an overrated, ungodly awful piece of shit.

I'll probably think of some more later.

If it makes you feel any better, I've liked every other Kubrick film I've seen.

Location: Matthew McConaughey has won the Oscar for Best Actor in-- "You think you know me..." Shit.
Zoolander, Anchorman and Meet the Parents are awful. Tropic Thunder is awesome.
Phantom Menace is, in retrospect, the superior overall film of the trilogy.
3:10 to Yuma is better than Unforgiven
Gary Oldman's performance in The Fifth Element is much better than in Leon or The Contender or almost anything else he's done
Zack and Miri is by far Kevin Smith's best film
Hook sucks and Spielburg should be ashamed
Peter O'Toole is a much better actor than Olivier
I forgot to put on my favorite films list :sad:

Oh yeah: If 8½ wasn't called 8½, it wouldn't be as popular or acclaimed

Why? What do you think would be a better title?
