While we’re on the subject of famous contemporary directors and their inclusion (or lack thereof) on the “EFAP Approved” movies list, I’m surprised they didn’t include anything by Quentin Tarantino or the Coen Brothers on there. Someone else in this thread referred to this list as “Reddit-tier”, and while I’m inclined to agree, I also think a lot of Reddit film bros would include Pulp Fiction and/or The Big Lebowski on their list of favorite movies. So he can’t even film bro correctly.To be fair, he has Alien/Aliens, Predator, and some people consider Jurassic Park and The Terminator horror but yeah. It's just blockbuster shit. Hell, even the one Nolan and Scorsese films he has on there aren't even the best in their respective careers. You'd think Momento or Goodfellas would be on there. The only non-American film he has on there is only there because it was fucking trendy and it beat Joker at the Oscars.
Without dragging this thread too off-topic I really fucking wish that GRRM waited until he finished the series before handing it off to HBO to adapt.The show has always had terrible foresight on what would become important later on in the story with major plot points like the all of the Stark children having warg abilities, the horn of winter, and Aegon VI getting cut which probably crippled the overarching narrative.
I mostly blame that though on GRRM failing to plot out all the details because of his aversion to making outlines, instead telling D&D vague plot points like "the COTF created the Others" or "Jon kills Daenarys" and leaving them to fill the blanks. D&D being lazy and having not much passion left for the source material didn't help the show
