The Rules of the Game has never done anything for me. In general, though, I have a hard time with the whole “comedy of manners” thing. There are some rare exceptions, but yeah.

If you hate Wilder then, yeah, I'd avoid it.

You NEED to see Taxi Driver, Psycho, Casablanca an Ben Hur. You'll be a better person if you see Raging Bull.

I’ve also never seen a single Woody Allen movie.

To be totally clear, Raging Bull is also overrated. But still see it because it has a lot to offer.

Other than Ben-Hur, I find none of those movies exciting at all. Woody Allen has made many great films, though.

It's no El Cid, but Ben Hur is a fantastic film. I'd highly recommend it. Those old epics are vastly underrated cinematic experiences.

I totally get why you wouldn't dig Casablanca. But Psycho and Taxi Driver? Those seem like movies you'd really dig.

I love Anthony Mann to pieces but I really don’t think El Cid is better than Ben-Hur

I would say Psycho is straight-up bad. I’ve said as much before, but I really only like a handful of Hitchcock movies, and none of them are his “serious” fare.

TD is due for a rewatch.

It’s well down by Mann list, honestly. I like The Fall of the Roman Empire a lot more.

Same. I want to, I just don't have the time to watch movies that no one else here would want to watch.
