Consensus IX: The Coen Brothers
« on: February 19, 2016, 07:49:30 pm »
Previous.

Should be self-explanatory by this point. I figured we'd do a Coen Brothers installment in honor of Hail, Caesar, so I picked a handful of their films to vote on. We can do a Part II if y'all want to see other films up here.

The Big Lebowski: 100%
Funny, quotable, and wildly unpredictable, The Big Lebowski is a film that deserves its cult status.

(8 votes)
Diego Tutweiller: +
Channing Tatum: +
John Tyler: +
Jeff Goldblum: +
Caleb Paasche: +
Rupert Bryant- A User Whose Opinion I Respect Because He Likes The Critically Acclaimed Film The Big Lebowski: +
Bread: +
Frank: +

Fargo: 100%
The Coen Brothers' dark comedy classic is shocking and hilarious in equal measure, featuring a starmaking turn by Frances McDormand as a pregnant cop with a thick Minnesota accent. Oh jeez.

Diego Tutweiller: +
Channing Tatum: +
John Tyler: +
Jeff Goldblum: +
Johnny Kashmir: +

Bread: +
Frank: +

O Brother Where Art Thou: 88%
Although the actions of a certain male stripper (who shall remain nameless) have doomed this film to not receive the 100% it so richly deserves, O Brother Where Art Thou is one of the best entries in the Coens' canon. I mean... come on, guys. I can't think of anything bad to say about this movie.

Bread: +
Frank: +

True Grit: 57%
True to the original while not compromising its gritty new vision, the Coen Brothers' True Grit nevertheless becomes bogged down in a structurally concrete plot to warrant any thrills or scares, creating a predictable and stuffed film, that doesn't seem to become grounded in it's craft. This results in a incoherent plot points with creepy things to stay glue to.

No Country For Old Men: 100%
Although it violates thermodynamics almost regularly, No Country For Old Men is still a deft, legitimately entertaining film with good characters and stuff.

(10 votes)
Diego Tutweiller: A very tentative +
Channing Tatum: +
John Tyler: +
Jeff Goldblum: +

Caleb Paasche: +
Robert Neville: +

Raising Arizona: 100%
Featuring the Coen Brothers in fine early form, as well as one of the finest performances by Nicholas "Christ" Cage of all time, Raising Arizona is a quirky, funny, and genuine film about parenting.

(6 votes)
Diego Tutweiller: +
Channing Tatum: +
John Tyler: +
Jeff Goldblum: +
Bread: +
Frank: +

Barton Fink: 100%
Another Coen Brothers movie with 100%. Yawn.

(5 votes)
Diego Tutweiller: +
Channing Tatum: +
John Tyler: +
Jeff Goldblum: +
Frank: +

Hail, Caesar: 67%
Hail, Caesar! is one of the Coens' lesser outings; the production quality is stunning, but the laughs are only sporadic.

Diego Tutweiller: -
Channing Tatum: +
John Tyler: +
Nicholas Moody: +
Jeff Goldblum: -
Johnny Kashmir: +

+ For Fargo, Hail Caesar, and No Country. How many of the rest are on Netflix?

The previous consensus results make me sad...

This score is too low in my opinion. Was the ending just not your cup of tea?
