Lists by smcgann14
I decided to make a separate list of my favorite docs because I don't put them on my favorite films of all time list.
And "film aficionados" gush over for that matter. hese are directors that may or may not be automatic selling points for critics, but make IMDb users and cultured filmgoers moist. Comparing user ratings to Metascores to show difference between users and critics. Director must not have a film rating that is below 6.0 to qualify. Sorry, Mr. Leone.
As best as I can determine. I apologize in advance for all the kiddie films on the list.

Incomplete. (1946-2014) (1945, 1 actor, 3 actress)
in no particular order, with examples of great performances
In my opinion, of course. The catch is, I will only do one movie per director, so Wolf Children, Game Boys, Inception, and Contact have been omitted.
A semi-sequel to my list of Oscar-nominated actors. I just find it a bit depressing when an Oscar-nominated actor or actress doesn't have a main photo for their IMDb page. Heck, one of the photoless actors WON an Oscar.
Also, as with the most nominations list, the number of nominations is inaccurate at the moment.
*complete filmography checked and has numbers This is a list of the largest amount of f-bombs in films, with the bare minimum of 11 f-bombs to appear on the list.

This is a list of TV shows that may or may not be spotlighted on a new webseries I'm developing called "Cancelled Catastrophes."
The premise is that I watch the pilot episode of a series that was cancelled in its first season, and if I actually like it, I start a separate vlog detailing my thoughts on the rest of the series.
The top Cinema Snob episodes (IMO).
good or bad reviews for these titles
I will constantly update this sometimes.
Here's a list of some of the movies and shows Doug Walker, aka the Nostalgia Critic, has reviewed. This doesn't include most of the things in the Top 11 lists.
Here are episodes of "The Simpsons" that are good enough to become movies.
This is my fantasy film company. It would start in 1994 and release films with what is assumed to be good stories. If this company existed, these are the films it would release.
Our best accomplishments include producing Christopher Guest's films, the Austin Powers trilogy, and making two Woody Allen films.
What were popular directors doing in 2011?
Are there any I missed? What are your thoughts?
On Nintendo 64 and GameCube
Couldn't be featured: Donkey Kong Jungle Beat, Ogre Battle 64
This is only at the beginning of 2011, so yeah, it's bad.
It's time for Oscar Calculations 2012! Here's Best Actor.
Everybody bow down to their comedic overlords.
I will edit this. For the third time, Bad Santa is at the top of my lists.
It might be different from my past list "The Best the The Simpsons: Season 1", in terms of order.
