    The film I hate the most is Lean On Me.
    The director I think is most over-rated is Michael Mann.
    The director I think is most under-rated is the Coen brothers.

    Hi, my name is Patrick McCart.
    My favorite film is tied between Fantasia, City Lights, A Hard Day's Night, and Singin' In The Rain.
    Most overrated director: Robert Altman
    Most underrated director: Richard Lester
    I have no idea why The Jazz Singer is considered a classic. Except for Al Jolson being great in the film, it's lousy.
    I can't say much about Kevin Costner. I haven't seen any of his films.
    I have yet to see a Tom Cruise film.
    I think Julia Roberts is overrated. This is coming from a native Georgian.
    Edward Norton is a great actor. (Especially in Fight Club)
    I haven't seen Gladiator.
    I think Titanic is a GOOD epic. Not great, but still a decent piece of filmmaking.
    Russell Crowe...I've only see him in A Beautiful Mind, but he was belivable in the film. That's what mattered.
    Stanley Kubrick was a genius of cinema.
    I haven't seen a Spike Lee film.
    The best thing about Home Theater Forum is the wealth of information and opinions compiled by numerous members.
    I don't want to answer the poster question. It wouldn't be fair, IMO.
    Home Theater Forum is always offering something.
    My political preference is the Whig party. [​IMG]

    Hi, my name is Evan Case.
    My favorite film is The Empire Strikes Back
    The film I hate the most is Armageddon (Teen Wolf Too is the most inept, however)
    The director I think is most over-rated is Quentin Tarantino.
    The director I think is most under-rated is Steven Spielberg.
    I have no idea why My Fair Lady is considered a "classic" film
    I loved Kevin Costner from '88-'91, now ambivalent/indifferent.
    I think Tom Cruise can be great with great material/directors.
    I don't seek out Julia Roberts films.
    I feel about Edward Norton like I do about Tom Cruise, but more so.
    I am one of the few who wanted Gladiator to win Best Picture that year.
    I'm glad I saw Titanic once and on the bigscreen and might buy a SE DVD if it had a 2-hr making of documentary included.
    I think Russell Crowe might be the finest actor to emerge in the past decade.
    I think Stanley Kubrick is the greatest director after Hitchcock.
    I've liked the two Spike Lee joints I've seen--Do the Right Thing and Malcom X--though I think he sometimes says controversial things to get extra press.
    The best thing about Hometheaterforum is the people.
    The poster I agree/sympathize/concur with most often is anyone who likes Laurel and Hardy.
    I believe that Hometheaterforum is costing me a couple points off my GPA every semester [​IMG].

    Hi, my name is Alex Spindler
    My favorite film is Rushmore
    The film I hate the most is Wing Commander (wasted potential. When the video game has better sets, special effects, costumes, actors, and story than the movie that based on it, it has real problems. Plus, they gave us Freddie Prinze Jr instead of Mark Hammil)
    The director I think is most over-rated is Roger Altman
    The director I think is most under-rated is Stephen Norrington (used to be Peter Jackson, but the world is now clued into his genius)
    I have no idea why (no choice) is considered a "classic" film - They are classics for a reason, and I can't fault the top 100 on IMDb for their craftsmanship.
    I hate Kevin Costner (love/hate/am ambivalent about/respect)
    I respect Tom Cruise
    I am ambivalent about Julia Roberts
    I love Edward Norton
    I respect Gladiator
    I respect Titanic
    I respect Russell Crowe
    I respect Stanley Kubrick
    I respect Spike Lee
    The best thing about Hometheaterforum is mature and knowledgable community
    The poster I concur with most often is Scott Weinberg (seems to appreciate the cheese along with the fine wine, film wise).
    I believe that Hometheaterforum is always offering something. Has been and continues to be a staple of my online consumption, and is always valuable.

    Hi, my name is ThomasC
    My two favorite films (i just can't choose, consarn it!) are traffic and magnolia.
    Thankfully, I don't really hate any movie I've ever seen, although I really don't care for The Lost World: Jurassic Park.
    No comments on the director and classic film questions because I don't have much of an opinion on directors for the most part, and I haven't seen that many classic films.
    I think Kevin Costner can act just fine. Perhaps he likes to star in a lot of critically and audience panned movies, you never know. [​IMG] I thought he was great in Thirteen Days, I hope he keeps on making good film decisions.
    I think Tom Cruise is one of the best actors in Hollywood.
    I think Julia Roberts can act just fine. [​IMG]
    I don't think I've seen Edward Norton in any movie other than Fight Club, and even then, I've only seen about the first 30 minutes of it.
    I think Gladiator is an okay movie, boring at times.
    I haven't seen Titanic in its entirety...I thought the part of the movie that I saw (basically everything right before the ship starts to sink) was alright, but by no means best picture material.
    I think Russell Crowe is a pretty good actor.
    I haven't seen any of Stanley Kubrick's movies.
    Spike Lee: see Stanley Kubrick.
    The best thing about Hometheaterforum is the maturity of most of the members. I think I've matured a bit as a result, and I owe it all to the HTF.
    The poster I agree/sympathize/concur with most often is...I haven't spent enough time here to really get to know one specific person's opinions on a lot of things.
    I believe that Hometheaterforum is always offering something, which is a very good thing.
