Angelina is an A list Oscar winner, but looking through her movie list, i noticed lots of stinkers. I think her celebrity overshadows her acting. She's a big celebrity, but her filmography is so weak. Critics don't really like her movies and on public rating site like Imdb, her movies are low rated, so people don't think her movies are great either. Is there any other A list actor/actress with a worse filmography?
Little word of warning, this post is rather lengthy. Apologies in advance. I'll try my best to keep these mini reviews spoiler-free, but don't expect a 100% compliance rate.
Yes, that Phil Collins. Drummer, singer/songwriter, and actor. I love this guy's music; lyrically and vocally. I always have, my 'obsession' for him has my friends and family perplexed, purely because I can't give them a straight answer as to why I love Phil Collins so much. Moving on, the idea came to me when I was watching the music video to Jesus He Knows Me by Genesis, where Collins plays a televangelist (as do the rest of the band). The little intro to the music video had me thinking, "whoa, this guy has got some acting chops", and the rest is history. I then proceeded to go on IMDB and look at what he's acted in throughout his career and collated them into a checklist, which looked something like this:
I recently finished watching Bringing Out the Dead (1999) and had no idea Martin Scorsese directed it, it seemed like the movie what under the radar despite the fact Scorsese is one of the most analysed and discussed director of all time .
I am looking for other titles directed by big names that maybe do so well at the time that have grown on you .
So anytime someone makes a post asking about his debut and popularity back in the day, everybody says the same thing - he made a massive debut but he gave a bunch of flops & if he had chosen good roles, he would have been bigger than the khans.
Let’s breakdown this filmography. He did 3 movies in 2000 - KNPH was a blockbuster, Fiza wasn’t too bad and Mission Kashmir, which was good. He does K3G (superhit) in 2001 & Yaadein (flop).
But he really messes up in 2002 with 3 flops. However, he then does Koi Mil Gyaa in 2003, then Lakshya, Krrish, Dhoom 2 and Jodhaa Akbar which are all good movies. Even when he flopped with Kites, he put in effort with Guzaarish and ZNMD.
And last year, he made bank with War and Super 30. He should def go Aamir’s route and be super selective with scripts and turn out 1 movie a year moving forward.
Also, seems like apart from Salman, he faced a lot of personal troubles too - father got shot, divorce, health problems, Kangana controversy etc whi... keep reading on reddit ➡
Of course, a lot of people share the opinion that Portrait of a Lady on Fire is a masterful work of cinema and I love it. I have a habit of seeking out other works a director/writer has done if I have never heard of them before and I come across one of their works. I had not heard of Sciamma before Portrait of a Lady on Fire. I have since watched all four of her director/writer films.
When it comes to a director who knows how to handle real human stories in a minimalist light that does not dampen the visual appeal, she is basically unrivalled, in my opinion. The premise to most of her films is often so day-to-day; one ordinary person desires another ordinary person or thing, and this is what they'll do to get it. And yet they always develop into moments so filled with tension that I feel my knuckles going white just because of the pauses in conversation when I am screaming for something to be said. She handles conversation and the framing of those conversational moments with such p... keep reading on reddit ➡
While just looking through Tom Cruise’s filmography I was surprised that for someone with 49 acting credits who has been acting nonstop since 1981 he has a very strong record with multiple classics and nothing too terrible or that bombed too hard.

He's essentially known for playing Black influential individuals of note. Some of whom were their "first" in their respective fields. Jackie Robinson in 2003's "42", James Brown in 2014's "Get on Up", T'Challa/Black Panther in 2016's "Captain America:Civil War" and Thurgood Marshall in 2017's "Marshall". So he has played the first Black baseball player to break the color line, played arguably the biggest Black singer prior to Michael Jackson, played the first mainstream Black comic book superhero and played the first Black Supreme Court Justice.
He is set to star in a film playing thr first non-Japanese samurai.
Incredible. I would imagine he likes getting work but having a filmography of playing real life individuals for being noted as the "first of his kind" might be draining. Get this man a comedy.
*Disclaimer: I actually wrote this right before the passing of Ben's father Jerry, so I held off on posting it until just now as I didn't want this light-hearted post to seem like it was done in bad taste. While I do kinda make attempts at sarcastic humor, I'm a fan of Ben Stiller's and have a lot of respect for him. Hopefully this is acceptable to post here; not all of the songs listed are "pop" per se, but I am an active browser of this sub and thought I would share.
It is fair to say that I have a pretty erratic stream-of-consciousness. Because my mind seems to wonder off pretty easily, I am often thinking about very random topics in rapid succession, from political worries to random Simpsons episodes and yes, pop music trivia from the 2000s. The other day, I thinking about Ben Stiller, the actor/comedian who was pretty ubiquitous in the late 1990s and 2000s. After reminiscing about some of his blockbuster hits, I began to think about Stiller's fairly unusual music video cam... keep reading on reddit ➡
I recently watched Scorsese's "The Age of Innocence" on Netflix. The thing that surprised me most was how radically different it was from his other, more famous work like "Goodfellas" and "Taxi Driver."
Many directors stay within a genre or a certain tone. Taika Waititi makes heartfelt dramedy films. The Safdie brothers make crime thrillers. Others make films that are completely different from one another (like Scorsese, as mentioned above).

What’s your personal favorite filmography from directors. You can name your favorites from them or why you love their collection of films.
Steven Spielberg: He made so many classics from different genres and even if his new ones aren’t as good as his early work, his current movies are rarely bad, I actually quite enjoyed his Tintin and Bridge of Spies from this decade. Best: Indiana Jones Trilogy, Jaws, Close Encounters from the Third Kind, Jurassic Park, Schindler’s List, The Terminal, Catch Me if you Can and much more.
Akira Kurosawa: Legend. One of the greatest directors, famous for the best Samurai movies, but could make great dramas and thrillers too, consistent to 1990. Best: Seven Samurai, High and Low, Ikiru, Dreams, Yojimbo, Rashomon, Ran and so much more again.
John Carpenter: So much fun watching his movies, even if his last couple weren’t that great. Best: His Kurt Russell collaborations are my favorites, but They Live, Halloween and The Fog are also am... keep reading on reddit ➡
So prior to the COVID-19 shut down I’d only seen a few Coppola movies and most of them were from the... shall we say less celebrated part of his career. So I decided to use the time to go back and watch as many as I could since quite a few were available to stream. I didn’t watch every single film because the guy has made tons, so I selected the ones that are generally well regarded. Here is my ranking of his films with some brief thoughts on each:
I was so worried going into this film that it was overhyped or was one that was revered at the time but hadn’t held up, and I’m so glad I was wrong. Start to finish this movie is incredible. The performances are batshit insane but so appropriate and engaging. The writing feels so precise and impeccable that I’m amazed that a lot of it was rewritten throughout the shoot. And of course the directing, cinematography, and effects rival anything that’s come before or after it. I feel I need to see it one or two more times... keep reading on reddit ➡
Recently I started introducing the works of David Fincher to my boyfriend and we steamrolled through Gone Girl, Seven, Fight Club, Zodiac and The Social Network over a two day period. My boyfriend immensely enjoyed each of them, but then today we sat down to watch The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Halfway through the film, he whispers to me; “Who directed this again?” And I replied “Uh David Fincher? Have you not been paying attention?” And he in turn replied “No this can’t be him!”
So what are some other films that you think feel different to a director’s filmography?
I recently saw that George Miller made both Happy Feet, and the Mad Max films and it got me thinking. Which director has the most diverse filmography? This question would be taking into account, a wide range of films in terms of their critic reviews and also the different genres the director has explored. I don’t know if there’s a definite answer for this, but I’m interested to hear what names are brought into the discussion!
Just looking for directors all of whose films I can binge in less than a week, like Nolan, del Toro, Tarantino and Rian Johnson to name a few
Not sure if this is me misreading but I had a quick question about the filmography section (footnote 24). I noticed that some of the entries are listed as being shot on 78 mm film. Am I reading the measurement correctly? As far as I'm aware there's no such thing, as 70mm is typically shot on 65mm and printed to the slightly larger format for rare, spectacular theatrical exhibition and would be prohibitively expensive for an independent, experimental filmmaker. Perhaps this is just a little fictional quirk, with the book's TP visual media format and the like? It's a minor detail but had me scratching my head and I can't find anything about it online.
So recently, because I have way too much free time, I've been ripping everything that's missing from my official Lynch home media releases - which is a lot - to make a rarities compilation disc. Thought I'd share the love and the links. Almost everything he's ever directed is either here or available commercially as noted, some of it not amazing quality.
These are the best quality of each that I can find. If anyone knows of any upgrades, anything I missed or got wrong - or where to fill in the few blanks - I'd love to hear.
Update: Found the one thing that was totally missing, the American Cancer Society ad, and the missing Sci Fi Channel ident. Also thanks to Throwaway47913 for the upgrade and Room To Dream scene.
UPDATE 2: Removed the Playstation commercials as they're misattributed. Added a few more shorts and ads. I'm taking the filmography in Room To Dream as gospel.

The title about sums it up.
Help settle an argument reddit. Which Scott brother has the better filmography?
I got into discussion with some co-workers on this after I mentioned the Re-Watchables podcast guys specifically stated Tony was the better of the two, which I strongly disagreed with, but my co worker thought was accurate.
Some of Tony's most famous work:
I don't think these lists are even close but clearly I'm not in agreement with everyone. Which is why I'm curious in the r/movies consensus.
The only ones I could come up with at the moment are:
Psy's Gangnam Style being waaaaaaay too overplayed in "The Nut Job."
BTS' Don't Leave Me being an official OST in the Japanese Drama "Signal" and I think DNA being briefly featured in a Drama? (Can't remember the name of it or if that's the correct song)
Stray Kids' songs Top and Slump being official OSTs for the Japanese Anime "Tower of God."
TWICE's Knock Knock having a sneaky lil cameo in "Spies in Disguise."
And Red Velvet's Zimzalabim being featured in "Trolls: World Tour."
Feel free to add any more that you know!
Basically, if the enough people like the idea, I’d post a poll with every Tarantino film, and you’d vote for your LEAST favourite.
In 24 hours, I’ll delete that poll and post another, except with the film with the most votes excluded.
I know many of you might be thinking “why not post one poll where you vote for your favourite and be done with it?” Well, because then most people will vote for the same 3-5 films, and we won’t get a concise ranking.
I would include both kill bills as one movie, and also the 6 films which were not both written and directed by Tarantino - those being true romance, natural born killers, four rooms, from dusk til dawn, sin city and planet terror.
Would anyone be interested in participating?
EDIT: I’ve posted the first rounds check my post history!
I’m using my ample quarantine free time to watch the filmographies of acclaimed directors who I need to explore more of. Next up is Sidney Lumet. I’ve seen a smattering of his films over the years, but far from all of them. The guy has over 40 films to his name so I won’t be watching every single one, just his most well-received few. That being said, by my judgement he still has at least 13 films which are highly rated. If you have any thoughts on these films, mainly if they’re worth seeing and spending a few bucks to rent I’d appreciate it. Also if I’ve left off any that are worth checking out please let me know. In order of their release year, these are the films I have on my list:
12 Angry Men
Long Day’s Journey into Night
Murder on the Orient Express
Dog Day Afternoon
Prince of the City
Running on Empty
Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead
You’ll pick up in their unique style of movie making and it’s easier to look forward to the next movie.
In true r/moviecirclejerk fashion, I listed five of the most renowned directors of the last few decades and their respective filmographies, up to ten feature films each. Though they are worshipped a lot in this sub and demographic, there is no denying that all of the following have provided us with very impressive films throughout the last years, and they have built a reputation for themselves. I selected those that have opted for being more cautious with their releases, having possibly lesser number of movies overall than some of their contemporaries but that have managed to maintain a level of quality attached to their projects. Here is the list:
|# Film||Paul Thomas Anderson||Quentin Tarantino||David Fincher||Christopher Nolan||Denis Villeneuve|
|1st||Hard Eight||Reservoir Dogs||Alien 3||Following||August 32nd on Earth|
|2nd||Boogie Nights||Pulp Fiction||Seven||Memento||Maelström|
|3rd||Magnolia||Jackie Brown||The Game||Insomnia||*Polytech|
(out of context content spoilers)
I actually have no idea how it avoided the R. In one sequence a man throws a knife down on another's hand and fingers come flying off so another shoots the first man in the head at point blank range spraying blood and matter on the back wall.
In another 4 men are shot while on horseback graphically with blood spraying from wounds and one man falling face first onto a sharp rock. There's also a hanging where the camera does not cut away as three mens' necks SNAP.
This is of course all in addition to the teenage girl that is slapped, spanked, stepped on, cut, thrown around, and nearly gouged.
I don’t mean popular as in Letterboxd’s popularity rating, I mean just the one many consider the weakest/the worst
Is watching a director filmography a good way to watch movies ?
For me, this way worked with some directors: Charlie Chaplin, Alfred Hitchcock, Quentin Tarantino, Christopher Nolan, Sergio Leone, Coen Brothers. Despite the fact that I've skipped some films that didn't interest me, I found some great films this way, and I also saw classics like The Great Dictator, Psycho, Pulp Fiction, Once Upon A Time In America and many others.
However, lately I couldn't watch films this way. I wanted to start watching Spielberg and Scorsese, and I always drop it after a few films or I don't even start. And I think that by watching films this way made me bored of films, and now I don't have the patience for a movie.
So should I try to continue watching director filmographies or should I just watch random films that interest me ? There are a lot of movies I've wanted to watch over the years, that I never watched. I just feel like I want to be up to date with the classics of cinema.

It’s The Vanishing of Sydney Hall. Pray for me.
I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately given quarantine and I have to say that Tom Cruise is definitely one of my front runners.
He kind of has an excellent film across every genre, while also having a deep bench of films that aren’t great but would pass the time.
To be clear I’m not saying he’s the best actor but for instance I wouldn’t pick DDL because of his limited number of films.

With the 10th St Bros recently releasing all their old movies for a few days at time on youtube, it got me thinking about the catalog of skimboarding movies out there. Skim media has moved on to youtube edits for the most part (or worse, IG clips) and the full length skim movie is now a dying artform, but it absolutely shouldn't be forgotten. I wouldn't be surprised if many amongst the newest generation of skimmers haven't even seen a single skim movie. I know Bearded changed my life when I first saw it back when I just got into skimming, and unfortunately I don't think new skimmers will get that feeling again.
As far as a complete list of every skimboarding movie out there, I don't think I'd ever seen one and I thought I could probably name most of them, so I began writing them down.

This is obviously a Star Wars related post, however not intended to compare their films in the sequel trilogy. I find my opinion of this interesting because the narrative that has been created from the botching of that trilogy is that J.J Abrams is a masterclass director, who turns water into wine, however it is Johnson that has historically made better films.

Infamously Foster-Wallace went to AA ceremoniously to research for infinite jest and to reflect on higher powers and the act of daily-awareness (and possibly for his own drug use starting to get out of hand I've heard). However, I haven't seen anyone talk about any video-art or even just movies that DFW enjoyed or appreciated in some sense. Considering Infinite Jest is named after a video-art work of Hal's father, and how extensive and creative the list of his works are, I'd find it strange if the author didn't at the very least do some esearch on the medium.
Does anyone have some information they could share? Not only to help understand my favorite novel even better, but also to find more inspiration for a project I'm working my SO that will be a concept-album of ambient and sampled music coupled with a comic/manga narrating the "plot". Thanks, truly

There isn’t one bad, or even mediocre, film in that list. Not to mention that “Rear Window,” “Vertigo,” “North by Northwest,” “Psycho,” and “The Birds” are generally regarded as masterpieces. In this 10-year period Hitchcock made some of the greatest films ever.
Seeing that there is a lot of Bergman films in the criterion channel, I was wondering where I should go. So far I have seen The Seventh Seal and Wild Strawberries. I enjoyed both movies however I found Wild Strawberries a bit easier to comprehend among my first viewing compared to The Seventh Seal with its numerous biblical references that I didn’t get since I’m not religious. So where do I go in this directors filmography and are Scenes from a marriage and Fanny and Alexander better to watch the theatrical version or the television version?

A week ago, in the spirit of keeping myself occupied during the quarantine, I decided to watch/rewatch every Scorsese film in no particular order. Obviously, the ones I’ve seen the most will go last-ish (Goodfellas, Raging Bull, Taxi Driver, etc.) I have begun by watching those I’ve never seen or ones I haven’t watched in a long time first. So far....
-The Color Of Money (1986). This was the second Scorsese film I saw in the theaters. Haven’t rewatched it in thirty years probably. Much better than I remembered it. The Hustler will always be the superior film, but this one is pretty great for a “minor” work and deserving of reconsideration. Tom Cruise is a damn baby (looks-wise) in this.
-Italianamerican (1974) / American Boy (1978).

So I don't know how they would go about getting that type of information, but it's kind of annoying seeing what's at the top of some of actor's most popular movies.
