    I like the Coens when they’re silly. My favorites are Raising Arizona, The Big Lobowski, and Oh Brother, Where Art Thou? I like their other films, but I could watch those three over and over again. I’m kind of surprised to see Burn After Reading on the list. I didn’t think much of that movie other than the Brad Pitt and George Clooney characters.

    I’m disappointed to see that Amelia is getting bad reviews. It’s such an amazing story, I think if it were done like The Aviator, which is one of the best bio-pics ever made, Amelia could be a really outstanding movie. I heard a guy on MPR talking about the real Amelia on the radio a while ago and it was absolutely fascinating.

    Sight unseen, I think the biggest problem with ‘Amelia’ is that they tried to give such a bizarre story a completely conventional formula. They needed somebody like David Lynch to do this movie. That would be sweet.

    Also, I don’t really care for Hilary Swank.
