I found this "ultimate personality test" from A Daily Dose of Zen Sarcasm, where you pick your favorite movie from the directors listed below. This is the little blurb that goes along with the test:
It’s not strange to disagree about movies that are wildly different, and there are surely a few random movies that are very polarizing. What I find most interesting is which movie people consider the best movie from a particular director, as it is usually very telling and polarizing in a different way, so to this point I will propose a new personality test where you reblog your favorite movie from each of these directors:
1. Joel Coen (why no Ethan Coen?): No Country for Old Men, The Big Lebowski, Fargo, The Hudsucker Proxy, Miller’s Crossing, Raising Arizona, etc
2. Wes Anderson: The Darjeeling Limited, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, The Royal Tennenbaums, Rushmore, Bottle Rocket, etc
3. Hal Ashby: Being There, Shampoo, Harold and Maude, etc
4. Kevin Smith: Zack and Miri Make a Porno, Dogma, Chasing Amy, Mallrats, Clerks, etc
5. Quentin Tarantino: Grindhouse, Kill Bill, Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, etc
There doesn’t seem to be any answers to this test; it just seems like an excuse to pick your favorite movies. I’ll share mine and feel free to enter your favorites in the comments.
The Big Lebowski – The Dude may be one of the greatest movie characters of all time. This movie seems to be funnier every time I see it.
Rushmore by default as I only saw this and Royal Tennenbaums of the West Anderson films. Bill Murray was great.
Being There – The only Hal Ashby move I’ve seen. Plus, I liked the book.
Zack & Miri probably because I saw this recently and it was filmed in Pittsburgh. Major bonus points for all of the Monroeville shots.
Easily Pulp Fiction. Just an amazing movie with a terrific cast. Plus, when I saw the film in the theatre, I thought the movie ending in the middle of the story was so cool (and it still is).
