Movie Personality Test

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).

The Dude abides, and I totally agree with that choice. Also, a Caucasian is among the best drinks ever.

The fact that Zack and Miri was filmed in Pittburgh does not make up for the fact that it is probably the second worst film of Kevin Smith's generally pathetic career. And I'm a Chasing Amy apologist!

Thanks, Madame Meow.

Nick - OK, Clerks probably earns the #1 seed. However, is Mallrats really better than Zack and Miri? I don't think so.
