I wouldn't include the 3D animated films out of general spite.

Nice job with getting your friends hooked on Star Trek, Handman! I couldn't have done it better myself. :)

I have a pretty stupid dialectic thanks to Letterboxd, in that I want to watch lots and lots of great movies, but I also want my star-rating bar graph to achieve a perfect bell curve.

Start watching shitty movies.  It's fascinating at just how educational they can be at times.  You learn exactly what not to do.

Underrated suggestion. I am of the opinion more people should watch bad movies on purpose. 

It's very difficult to make a great film. We know this. Yet we expect the films we spend our time watching to be great. You could say, statistically, great films are out of the ordinary; abnormal. You can temper those expectations back to average, and then you might be more impressed by products of quality, and your graph will be more naturally perfect. Low effort entertainment is the great equalizer. But make sure to shoot for actual good-bad movies. Not just bad-bad movies. No reason to torture yourself.

Exactly the reason why I've watched all those Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street sequels.

With 'Pan's Labyrinth' watched, that completes my first '5 Directors, 5 Films' challenge.

I really enjoyed all the varied films by Michael Powell. Fritz Lang's films were not his best ones. Dario Argento is definitely now one of my favourite Directors. The George A. Romero films were interesting but not the equal of his Dead trilogy. The Del Toro films were all terrific, except for Blade II. A worth while exercise all round.




Time for '5 Directors, 5 Films' Part II:

Kathryn Bigelow (I'm crazy about her hard-hitting political work in the last 10-years but I haven't seen a lot of the early more varied stuff. This completes her filmography (not including her first co-directed feature))
1987 Near Dark
1990 Blue Steel
1991 Point Break
2000 The Weight of Water
2002 K-19: The Widowmaker

Tsui Hark (A good excuse to crack open my new 'Once Upon a Time in China' blu-ray boxset and complete the 'A Better Tomorrow' trilogy)
1989 A Better Tomorrow III: Love & Death in Saigon
1991 Once Upon a Time in China
1992 Once Upon a Time in China II
1993 Once Upon a Time in China III
1993 Once Upon a Time in China V

Spike Lee (I've sporadically seen his work but not much of his early stuff. 5 of his earliest films from my 9-disc DVD boxset, completing everything from 1988 to 1994)
1986 She's Gotta Have It
1988 School Daze
1989 Do the Right Thing
1990 Mo' Better Blues
1991 Jungle Fever

Ken Russell (completes his films from 1970 to 1980)
1969 Women in Love
1970 The Music Lovers
1971 The Boy Friend
1974 Mahler
1980 Altered States

John Woo (Completes his vintage Hong Kong action period from 1986 to 1992, plus his most recent film returning to the HK action genre)
1986 Heroes Shed No Tears
1989 Just Heroes
1990 Bullet in the Head
1991 Once a Thief
2017 Manhunt

(I've gone for two 80s/90s Hong Kong action Directors because I'm in that kind of mood.)

Sweet, we both have Point Break on lists of movies to watch! But my list also includes films in the category mentioned further above, of...bad films.

I hardly use letterboxd, but I think I will use it in my journey of... 
Watching every film where Keanu Reeves plays a character named John (or a variation of it)!

Here is my letterboxd list for Keanu Reeves movies where he plays a character named John:

https://boxd.it/2YaQU

Now, I have them listed in release order, but I will not be watching them in that order. Tonight is my only opportunity watch John Wick Chapter 3, so before that I will be rushing to watch 1 and 2. After that, I'll just go in whatever order interests me in the moment.

The Streisand A Star is Born isn't worth the trouble.
