Scorsese/Keitel's pretty great. Also:

Fincher/Pitt
Soderbergh/Clooney
PTA/Reilly
Leone/Eastwood
Hawks/Grant
Coens/McDormand
Welles/Cotten
Guest/Levy
Tarantino/Feet

Carpenter/Russell's probably my favorite though, alongside Anderson/Murray.

Yes. I am.

Scorsese/DiCaprio would be on a longer list, for the record. So would PT Anderson/the HOFF!. So would The Bergh!/Clooney and the Coens/McDormand

I'd like to say Spike Lee/Denzel but there are clunkers mixed with the ones I like.

I'm sure there are historic pairings that I'd list if only I'd seen all the films in question. Kazan/Brando, Capra/Stewart, Huston/Bogart, etc.

I'm very tired of Burton/Depp as well, I should add. Very tired.

Big yes for Huston / Bogart. Some others:

Wilder / Lemmon
Kurosawa / Mifune and Shimura
Hawks / Grant
Mann / Stewart
Melville / Delon

Tough to beat Scorsese/DeNiro, but a list of mine would have these two near the top:

Ford/Wayne
Ford/Fonda

I can't believe I forgot this one.

Also, under least favorite, how about:

Scott/Crowe

I don't actively dislike any of their pairings, but considering all the hype they haven't exactly yielded great results.

And, as I said above, an expanded list of mine would include Scorsese/DiCaprio.

Perhaps I was unclear when I wrote, "there". I meant "there".

Henry Fonda and Ford have quite a track record(My Darling Clementine, Grapes of Wrath, Fort Apache, Young Mr. Lincoln, Mister Roberts...).

But between the two, Ford/Wayne in a landslide:

Fort Apache
The Quiet Man
Rio Grande
The Searchers
She Wore a Yellow Ribbon
Stagecoach
They Were Expendable

probably a couple more I'm missing


Kurosawa had that one guy who was in a bunch. Can't imagine Throne of Blood without him
