Have you ever seen the rest of Kurosawas films of rest of Coppola's masterpieces or any films by Leone. Nice list.
Posted: 3 years, 10 months ago at Oct 6 20:27
Well, Coppola's masterpieces are just The Godfather trilogy, Apocalypse Now and perhaps The Conversation.
Well, only seen Seven Samurai and Rashomon but do intend to see more in the future.
Thanks. I appreciate it :)

Nice list, I agree with most, not with Titanic though and most certainly not with 2001 Space Odissey (I just couldn't get into it)
Posted: 3 years, 10 months ago at Oct 20 17:14
How come not with Titanic?
Hmmm... don't there are THAT many people who could get into it but can't deny that the filming of it was brilliant.
