A Comparison of Lists…

My friend Robert Mathison recently requested that I do a Top 5 Coen Brothers list, as well as a Top 10 Clooney Performances compilation. I took that offer, but under only one condition – that he do the same and I post both of them side by side, comparing our tastes with each. Here is how they stack up…

Robert’s 5 Favorite Coen Brothers Films

1.The Man Who Wasn’t There
2.No Country For Old Men
3.The Big Lebowski
5.O Brother, Where Art Thou?

    Here’s my top 5 for the Coens. You won’t find this one anywhere else, I assure you:

    1. No Country for Old Men
    2. Fargo
    3. Barton Fink
    4. Raising Arizona
    5. Intolerable Cruelty

    I don’t know Clooney half as well as I should like, so here’s a quick tentative 5 list:

    1. Good Night, and Good Luck
    2. Michael Clayton
    3. O Brother, Where Art Thou?
    4. Intolerable Cruelty
    5. Ocean’s 11

    Man, I really need to rewatch The Man Who Wasn’t There and Miller’s Crossing.

  3. Ferguson Says:

    Hey, thanks for adding your choices! And yes, you should certainly check out both of those Coen films, and “Blood Simple” if you haven’t already…

  4. striderdemme Says:

    Oh I’ve seen them all; just need to revisit the ones that I watched while extremely tired. 🙂

  5. Ferguson Says:

    Ah, I see. I’ve done that too, way too many times actually.

  6. Robert Says:

    Nice. I have never seen “Miller’s Crossing.” Looks like we’ll have to watch that.
    Good stuff, my friend. Coffee soon? Call me.
