    Hacksaw Ridge: Fantastic performance by Andrew Garfield, and some of the goriest war scenes I've ever seen. I gave it 4.5/5 ... but it got hard to watch after a while simply due to how graphic the Okinawa invasion scenes were.

    Extreme violence is Mel Gibson's fetish.

    A Serious Man

    I let this one sink in for a few days before evaluating a score. This is a tough one. The Coen's probably think of this as one their proudest works although it wasn't a box office success and didn't win any major awards like so many of their other films.

    I guess if you want a good look into why Joel and Ethan Coen are the way they are and make movies the way they do, this is a great place to start.

    Bad things happen to good people, and that's nothing new to anyone who has spent time in the Coen universe, but why? We don't know and we'll never know. Most every movie buff here has probably spent time trying to look through the fog to find the true hidden motives in a Coen flick and sometimes we really do think we know. Even something as seemingly unconstrained as The Big Lebowski has layers and deep meanings and no end to theories on what it all means. Short version: We're all screwed.

    What does it mean to be good? What is integrity? What is God's role in all this? What's the meaning behind the film's sudden climax?

    Yeah, no shit. This seemed even more over the top than Apocalypto or We Were Soldiers.

    A few years ago, I did a Coen Brothers Project where I watched all of their films -- even ones I'd seen before -- in order.

    The three that stuck the most with me were Miller's Crossing, The Man Who Wasn't There, and A Serious Man. Especially ASM. It really delves into the human soul in a way that no other Coen film ever has.

    Burton Batman: 4/5
    Reeve Superman: 2/5. It has not aged well.

The only movies from 2017 that I would absolutely recommend as great with no caveats were Get Out, The Big Sick, and Lady Bird.
    And, of course, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

    I like all of those you mentioned but I would go (just in terms of my favorites, and my favorites are dark as hell):

    1. Barton Fink
    2. The Man Who Wasn't There
    3. No Country for Old Men
    4. Fargo
    5. The Big Lewbowski

    5.(a) Burn After Reading (watch it again now, trust me)

    I need to watch The Man Who Wasn't There, Hail Caesar!, Intolerable Cruelty, Inside Llewyn Davis and The Hudsucker Proxy so I can do a Coen Bro list. Mine would probably be very different than Emu's (well, Fargo would probably be in the same spot).
