I've seen The Elephant Man, Wild At Heart, Blue Velvet and Mullholland Drive (Though, like I said, never the whole thing aside from The Elephant Man which I saw a while ago).

And yes, if I had my way in the film, Tom Cruise's charcter would get shot. Possibly in the mouth.

And I don't know what it is about him, I really don't. Everything about him and surrounding him should make me hate him. But I just love his performances for some reason. Maybe it's because he's completely out of his mind. But I absolutely adore him in Magnolia and Collateral.

I know what you mean, especially with those two films. I think recently my admiration for his performances depends whether or not he also has a hand in producing the film. Basically if he doesn't have producer control and doesn't have a director who will pamper to him, then I think he delivers a stronger performance. Otherwise he just seems to have one eye on the box office grosses and is practically bland.

Case in point - after three Mission Impossible films that he produced, what do we actually know about Ethan Hunt? But check out that interview scene in Magnolia...

Excellent point. Though is certainly also has a lot to do with the script, I know exactly what you mean.

I still want to make a list in your thread.

I am not sure if I'm qualified to make a list in this thread. I mean, I love movies to death, and I certainly know which actors and directors I like, but I am probably not expert enough to drill much deeper. I guess it's easy to say that I loved the cinematography for Children of Men, and choose the person responsible, but would that person be good for a film idea I had in my head? I'm not sure. Hell, it's just a fun list and all, but, just not sure I'd be able to make one that made sense or was any good.

Thank you, sir.

Yeah, that and the 3 submission rule is what holds me back from submitting more lists of potentially ballbustingly awesome movies. I'm getting my picks for those lesser bits based on movies they've done and how it would fit (The Wes Anderson one was kind of easy).

Just try it.

That's really what I wanted to accomlish with this thing. Getting people to do a little research into the technical positions that makes their favorite films truly great. IMDB was made for this stuff. Liked the cinematography in COM? Look up who did it, then see what else they've done. If you see another movie you were impressed with on that list, then check that out and maybe you'll discover who did the sound or art design for that one. Then you can see what those people have done.

It's surprisingly addictive and very enlightening, and really gives you an appreciation for all the people that work on these damn things we talk about so much.

I'm thinking I might say To Hell with the limit rule given the sparse responce this thread has gotten so far. I'll probably also forget about any kind of competition for now, and just encourage people to make as many films as they can and keep the discussions going.

So go ahead, submit all you want.

Fantastic. I have 3 coming up I'm absolutely sold on cast/director/writer-wise, just need to fill in the rest.

I want to see that movie now.

Only things I'm not 100% drooling over (I used Lubezki myself for my gangster flick ) are Gosling as the lead (not sure he can do this type of film yet) and Williams

I think this would be the movie where Gosling finally steps up into that DiCaprio "Every Movie I Do from Now on Will Be for Oscar Contention" category. He was the only thing that kept me watching The Notebook, moreso than Rachel McHotSauce.

I think soon, I'm going to go in deep and try to put together my dream team for the Dark Tower 7-film adaptation. I've been thinking about it for over 2 years now, and this would be as good a place as any to put something down in writing.

I'm not sure if I want to do use a different director and crew for every film or keep it all the same though....
