    I love CE's films and agree that AS was near the bottom of my list too.

    +1 That was great.

    'Into The Furnace' and 'The Machinist' aka 'Get This Skinny Bastard On GOMAD ASAP' are really good CB films too.

    I think Mad Max: Fury Road takes all comers this year, though Creed was quite good.

    One of my top 5 of all time as well.

    Christian Bale went from The Machinist to Batman in around 6 months. The Costume designers for Batman Begins under estimated how much weight he could put on in that time. He was too big for the suit.

    Bone Tomahawk is outstanding.

    Fury Road was a life-changer for me. I knew I wanted action movies with more practical effects, editing that lets you see what's going on, and MORE WOMEN, but I didn't know just how wonderful all of that would be until I saw it. It's rare to see a movie in any genre with such flawless execution.

    I find Tarantino somewhat irritating and mannered. At his worst, his dialogue rivals an unrestrained David Mamet, and most of the scenes that other people find shocking leave me cold -- okay, we get it, you're super edgy. That being said, I'll sit down and watch From Dusk Til Dawn any time, but Rodriguez deserves at least equal credit for how great that movie turned out. And I do have a soft spot for the second half of Death Proof, but since I loved Fury Road you could probably figure that out anyway.

    But that punk director, whose career began renting videos in Manhattan Beach, CA, and whose name I will not waste the energy to type, is a waste of skin and an oxygen thief. I only once saw one of his movies involuntarily when visiting family friends who disappointed me by showing one of his movies they rented.
    Look out we got a bad ass film snob over here.

    Never had the desire to be modish and watch his other Silly Bullshit. Suburban white boys trying to sell woof tickets about their badiousity have left me cold since the 70's.
    This makes a little more sense. I love Tarantino and think IB is his worst. Not just compared to his work, it is legitimately bad movie. Made worse by BJ Novak somehow bribing his way into screen time.

    Well, I think QT gets too wrapped up in his own style, Pulp Fiction is probably his best movie over all, and Reservoir Dogs would make a much better stage play than a movie (though Harvey Keitel is always great), but his "70's exploitation" obsession is tiring. We get it, you watched a lot of crappy movies 30 years ago. Kill Bill and Inglorious Basterds are only interesting if you've never seen what they're copying.

    Fury Road is nuts, though. Really seamless, visually stunning, amazing acting and it tells a complex story without any exposition, whatsoever.
