Clooney's Favorite Films Inspire Mini Movie Trailer Marathon: From President's Men to The Sting

Thompson on Hollywood

Happy Monday from George Clooney! He’s shared his 100 favorite films (from 1964-1976, “the greatest era in filmmaking by far”). Among the collection (which he’s gifted to friends for Christmas) are the following classics (it won’t surprise you that Clooney has good taste): All The President’s Men (also a favorite of Aaron Sorkin’s), American Graffiti, Badlands, Bonnie & Clyde, Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid, Chinatown, A Clockwork Orange, Cool Hand Luke, Dog Day Afternoon, Easy Rider, The Exorcist, Godfather I & II, The Graduate, Harold and Maude, Jaws, Last Tango in Paris, McCabe & Mrs. Miller, Midnight Cowboy, My Fair Lady, Network, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Rosemary’s Baby, The Sting, Taxi Driver and Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?. If that list doesn’t make you want to have a movie marathon, what possibly could? It also makes one wonder what happened to the art of the movie poster. We’ve put together a mini-marathon of their trailers below. You’re welcome:

Speaking of posters, take a look at the poster for the recent film 50/50. The poster is what attracted me to the film initially. It really tells the story in an instant but yet in deeply compelling way as it helps you discover the theme. The design elements are borrowed from another time but very effective. Kudos to Summit marketing and the producers/director.

Media Machine Is Insane

This is ridiuclous ! Why does the media continue to fawn over George Clooney and Brad Pitt ( only decent actors not great actors) ? Moneyball is not a Oscar caliber film , nor are the performances Oscar caliber . Moneyball is one of the most overrated films this year.

Bob Westal

Can’t argue with most of his choices, but it’s a little surprising there’s nothing there from before 1963 or so.
