    6/10

    Shoutout to @bleartandssgott for the request.

    Critics talk about Dario Argento like he's the director equivalent of Weezer. Used to be good, but now he only makes trash. The truth is that Argento has always been stupid. It's just that his early films were good by accident. Aside from his visual prowess, there are certain directing skills that he lacks. If it weren't for the high budget, or Argento's masterful cinematography, then Suspiria probably would've been Manos-tier bad. And…

    Shoutout to @classicreviews for the request.

    Shoutout to @thegoober for the recommendation.

    When people talk about one hit wonders, it is usually applied to musicians like MC Hammer or Vanilla Ice, but I believe that it can apply to directors as well. For example, Tommy Wiseau, who made The Room, and never made another film after that. Or Mary Herron and Richard Kelly, who made well-respected cult classics (American Psycho, Donnie Darko), but the rest of their filmography has nowhere near the same amount of…
