Definitely your loss, they have made some damn good movies.

Maybe... Never really had the desire to see anything that they made...

You must have very specific tastes in movies, cause they have covered a pretty wide range of films/genres...IMO.

Missing out on some really solid movies, whether they wrote or directed the film.

Never really been a movie fan... Would much rather watch shows developed for television... I'd rather watch something that develops over many years instead of being over in a couple of hours...

postbro. Go focking rent No Country for Old Men, Fargo, Raising Arizona and The Big Lebowski right now. I know it's your shtick to be indifferent to everything, but those are 4 of the greatest stories ever told.

I'd add True Grit to that list, but I'm a sucker for westerns.

And the original was better. Sorry, but John Wayne > *.*

Nope. Jeff is a far more than adequate replacement to John.

 

However, Hailee Steinfeld steals the Remake. And Kim Darby was annoying as fuuck.

 

Plus, more violence, more better.

Oh Brother, the man who wasnt there, and intolerable cruelty are my favorites of theirs.

 

The more famous ones like raising Arizona and the big Lebowski just never did anything for me.

I didn't care for those two much either, but their biggest hits, Fargo and No Country are excellent. My personal favorite: A Serious Man.

Blood Simple, Barton Fink, Millers Crossing.

Lebowski's overrated. It's a dude bro film. You're supposed to like it because everybody else likes it. But you pretty much have to be stoned to like it.

 

As far as I'm concerned, it insists upon itself.

I thought I read that for the Fargo show the Cohen's were executive producer but really had nothing creatively to do with the show....I might be wrong but thought I saw that somewhere.

I havent seen Fargo or no country. I should check those out.

Prob their best two pieces of work. I very much prefer their non comedy. Both won academy awards as well.
