I find Sam Raimi's Spiderman Trilogy (Spiderman 3 included) far more satisfying and impressive than Nolan's Batman films.

Don't get me wrong, I thought Dark Knight and Inception were good films, just not great, as opposed to Raimi's Spider-man movies which I do legitimately love.

I'd probably say the opposite, Spiderman 1 and 2 were both great. I'm with the majority on 3 - hated it. I love me some Nolan, though.

Spider-Man 3 was definitely the weakest of the Trilogy, but I still left the theater satisfied. Plus it introduced the series' most complex antagonist in the form of The Sandman, which was a treat for me.

Bringing this up purely because it reminded of another one of my own Snobbish Heresies.

I didn't care for "The Dark Knight". The movie ran just too damn long. There were so many points watching it that I thought, "Okay it's almost over, right?". If this had been shorter I might have been able to enjoy it more, but in the last 45 minutes I was just waiting for it to end because I just stopped caring.

I've heard a lot of people that agree with you there, including myself. I think most people will start to agree as the Coens' True Grit ages, as people seem to have this weird pre-conceived notion that older movies are always a lot better.

Oh, and on a related note, I'm not entirely sure if this should count, but The Big Lebowski is by far my favorite Coen Brothers movie.

Not at all heresy, unless you're one of those weird people that hate Fargo.

No, Fargo is easily my second favorite (although I haven't seen The Man Who Wasn't There yet).

And to keep contributing to the thread, Jason Takes Manhattan is my favorite Jason movie. Not snobbish, I know, but it fits.

Mine, too! I actually think it works the best in terms of it's plot structure; 1, 2, and 8 make the perfect series for me.

Actually, Jason 8 is my favorite because it's so bad. It's one of the funniest movies I've ever seen. That's really how I see the entire Friday the 13th series.

It's probably a bad sign regardless if you're waiting for a movie to be other. That's why I can argue that the Jackass movies are great films; I'm always sad when one ends, because I want it to keep going.

The Man Who Wasn't There was pretty good. There were parts that emphasized too much of the Coen's weirdness, which was disappointing.

Also, if you're a Coen fan, I was wondering if Miller's Crossing or Barton Fink are good, since they were just released on Canadian Netflix.

Barton Fink is pretty good, but it is kind of weird. It's a lot better the second time. And I couldn't even get through Miller's Crossing, but a lot of people really seem to like it, so I'm planning on giving it another shot someday.

Speaking of the Coens, one of my favourite movies of theirs is Burn After Reading.

Miller's Crossing for me (in that I love it). I'm already addicted to 30's, 40's, and 50's noir. So Miller's Crossing is a natural extension of that for me.

I list my snobby thoughts a bit later.

That's definitely another favorite of mine. I actually think No Country is really overrated. Javier Bardem is really great, but outside of that I don't think it's that great a movie. The ending really disappointed me.

Aww, that's probably my second favourite behind Fargo. I thought it was the most intense of their films. And yeah, Javier Bardem is incredible in it.

I don't think No Country is a bad movie, it's just not as good as everyone says. But it's fucking amazing anytime Javier Bardem is on screen. But I like a lot of their other movies ahead of it, especially Burn After Reading.

Did you like A Serious Man? I was somewhat disappointed by that.

I enjoyed it, but it wasn't great. It felt, I dunno...pointless. I was also really disappointed by Raising Arizona, because I love the Coens and Nic Cage, but it left almost no impact on me. Maybe I need to give it another shot.

I actually have to agree with you on that. It was entertaining, but somewhat throwaway.

Ohh! One more! I enjoyed the hell out of "The Chronicles of Riddick", and the whole Riddick series in general, including the Peter Chung anime short they did and the two video games. I think it's because I'm such a nerd for space opera and pulp fantasy, and I really dug the larger world the movie was setting up. I keep hearing that Vin Diesel is trying to get another movie made, and I so hope he pulls it off.

I honestly hated that movie. Didn't like the main characters and most of the black humor fell flat on me. Brad Pitt and George Clooney were alright in it though.
