Favorite Dustin Hoffman Movie
He 'graduated' in 1967, dustin' off Hollywood's leading man standards. In 1969, he was 'walking here' and in 1976, he was actually running. Whether "Rain", "Marathon" "Little Big" or one "of the President's", Dustin Hoff... was the MAN (though in 1982, he admitted he was a better man with a woman, as a woman... than he ever was as a man). And on the 8th day of the 8th month, beloved star and iconic method actor Dustin Hoffman celebrated his 80th birthday. On this occasion, or celebrating the 50th anniversary of his breakthrough role, or the 20th anniversary of his last Oscar-nominated performance, let's have a look at his leading, co-leading or scene-stealing supporting roles in movies.

Hollywood, don't even think about remaking or rebooting this classics! Or else, you're going to be in big trouble! Sometimes you just can't beat the original, so why even try? These movies (1999-below) are best well-known to be a classic and proved to be untouchable because it already have all of its perfection we we're looking for in a film.

Face-Off: 'Magnolia' vs. 'The Graduate' vs. 'Harold & Maude'
Which of these movies, each inspired by one specific musical artist, do you think combined music and film the most successfully? Several films have been created from classic albums, like Pink Floyd’s The Wall or The Who’s rock-opera Tommy. There are also albums that are basically musical versions of film scripts, such as Prince’s Purple Rain or Curtis Mayfield’s Superfly. Musical artists, however, are rarely commissioned to provide an entire soundtrack’s worth of original material for a movie in which they shared no part in filming or writing — essentially creating a score of new songs that carry their weight independent of the film, as well. A small, elite group of pop artists can claim such a distinction: Simon and Garfunkel composed music for 'The Graduate', Cat Stevens did 'Harold and Maude', and Aimee Mann's music provided the soundtrack, and some of the inspiration, for 'Magnolia'. A few others are out there but these three are widely considered the best in film, music, and the synthesis of the two. Discuss (and hear sample songs) here.

The Real Top 35 Hollywood Blockbusters of All Time - Inflation Adjusted
Filmsite.org, who was polite enough to mention that the IMDb, Boxoffice.com, Boxofficemojo.com, and The-numbers.com in their intro to ALL-TIME TOP 100 FILMS (Domestic Gross, Inflation-Adjusted), said, as of January 15, 2019, these were the top 35 films for the USA domestic box office. These are the real Hollywood box office blockbusters, not the lists that only use today’s actuals and forget to adjust the box office for ticket inflation for the older films, aka, count the number of tickets sold. However there is one big flaw in this list and that is many of the films have been released more than once. In fact, one originally flopped, and later found its true audience in a re-release in the 1950s and 1960s. With that being said, it still does not take away from the accomplishments of those that had only one release and still made the list. Which one of these films is your favorite? Discuss the films here. They are listed in order from highest to lowest. If you want to see the rest of the 100 list, use the link in this description.
