Never been a fan of his. I don't think there's one of his films I could say I liked.
In my opinion, some of them rank among the best films ever made. 'Annie Hall', 'Manhattan', 'Hannah and her Sisters', 'Purple Rose of Cairo'. But they are very USA-culture oriented and you have to understand the American (and particularly New York) culture to appreciate them. Even if you don't like Woody Allen, surely you like Diane Keaton?
How about "Our Man Flint" and "In Like Flint" with James Coburn?
They are really spoofs of James Bond films, but good fun all the same.
For a long time I had the 'red telephone' ring as my ringtone.
They were great films. I have the soundtrack to Our Man Flint. Might play it today.
He was good in Toy Story
Surprised it took so long for Midnight express to be mentioned, so take a bow sir! Probably these two won't qualify as they are a bit later-Casino and Good fellas. Sleepers is also good.
Had to resurrect this thread because I just watched an old film. Well if 1970 is old. It's based on a 1960 novel.
Rabbit, Run (film) - Wikipedia
James Caan is the lead actor.
Not a particularly great film but it features an actress I've never heard of before who I thought was absolutely gorgeous, Anjanette Comer.
Saw another one "The Picasso Summer" with Albert Finney and Yvette Mimieux.
A truly atrocious film, but Yvette Mimieux was a joy to watch.
Been some brilliant films mentioned on here, but a few others I liked
Sexy Beast, Ray Winstone's best film imo
Quadraphenia, was brilliant at the time.
Rita, Sue and Bob to.
The one where a submarine and its crew are shrunk, and travel round a mans body.
Shooters, brutally real.
Thought the Ealing comedy's were great:
The Lady Killers.
Passport to Pimlico.
Kind Hearts and Coronets.
Just watched "I Knew Her Well" from 1965. Italian movie featuring the gorgeous and spellbinding Stefania Sandrelli.
Excellent film but probably only if you like Italian films.
Lots of Italian street scenes and 1960's Italian cars.
Here's a short clip:
The submarine one is called the fantastic voyage

Laurel and Hardy-The music box. An absolute classic!
Personally, I still enjoy The Pink Panther Sellars' Clouseau series. The Steve Martin rehashes are plain awful though.
Why do they do these re-makes? If they are good movies e.g. Titanic, Planet of the Apes & lots more successful ones - just leave them well alone is my plea.
Laurel & Hardy, Marx Brothers, Airplane...there is a comedy theme here isn't there?

Yes, they are all very funny, and I dislike the needless remakes too.
Sometime you should watch "Mother". You'd probably get a few laughs.
