The Ultimate Personality Test [Memes]




Neven Mrgan’s tumbl:

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: 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

1. The Big Lebowski (I agree with Neven Mrgn that Fargo is a better film, but Lebowski has that “Great American” applies-to-every-life-situation thing going on.)

2. The Life Aquatic (I adore them all, but I’m going with this mainly because I cannot get enough of stop-action animation).

3. And I just added three films to my “to watch” list.

4. Chasing Amy (but I really don’t like any of them all that much)

5. Pulp Fiction (hands down)

    1. The big Lebowski. I just had a conversation with the VP of Sale this morning about the Coen brother films.n His favorite is Fargo.
    2. This is a toss up between The darjeeling limited and Royal Tennenbaums. I think I will have to go with the Darjeeling Limited due to its absolute beauty and stunning cinematography.
    3. Lol see Holden’s comments. I Have always wanted to see Harold and Maude.
    4. Dogma
    5. Pulp Fiction, but i do get tired of Tarantino.

    1. Fargo. Every time I watch it, I get something new. Raising Arizona is great, too.

    2. Rushmore. One of my favorite movies.

    3. Being There. A tour de force performance by Peter Sellers. And a very funny movie.

    4. Clerks, I guess. Am I the only one who thinks Kevin Smith is overrated?

    5. Pulp Fiction. I think True Romance is his best screenplay, though.

    Hi tk!

    No, you are absolutely not the only one who thinks Kevin Smith is overrated. There are at least two of us.

    P.S. Are we learning anything yet? The one thing about this personality test is that it’s missing a “results” paradigm. If I can’t find one soon, I’ll be forced to make one up…which will probably result in something along the lines of “How Bad Your Taste Is Compared To Holden’s”.
