For my first selection, I am going for the directorial angle:

Joel & Ethan Coen

(IMG:http://i128.photobucket.com/albums/p182/mellowblissful/coen.jpg)

I have been a huge fan of this filmmaking duo since high school, and I am glad that they have finally regained the focus that they lost a handful of years ago. A huge coup for my production company, as these guys usually deliver from both a critical and commercial standpoint.

The pro wrestling draft so far has had like 44 rounds, and the NFL Draft had 25...

Sure it's not going to go extremely fast paced, but it makes things more funnier. I hate how some of the drafts are so short.

But really it's up to everyone else, what do you guys want to do about this?


I like the idea of them being both, because that is what they are. But at the end of the 35 rounds, just for purposes of categorizing them whoever drafts someone like Eastwood needs to specify whether they want to classify them as a director or an actor.

It doesn't say in the first post, but I assume this is a serpentine draft (first pick in odd number rounds is the last in even number rounds), correct?

... yeah, I'm wondering about the serpentine rules. I've got my picks lined up if so, because that means I'd be going twice, right?

I say go for the two picks. I don't think anybody here will argue it. It is the traditional method for these things.

So basically if we get to the actual "pitch a movie" stage I have no clue what I'm going to do here, but I gotta. I just gotta.

Akira Kurosawa and Toshiro Mifune

My favorite director of all time and my favorite actor of all time. I'll figure something out.

I was actually debating between Kubrick and Kurosawa for my first pick. Just had to be honest about which one entertains me more.

Plus, Kurosawa and Mifune do go really well as a package deal. I'm glad they went that way, I wouldn't like to see them split up.

Almost like a package deal for me, as some of my favorite movies involve my first 2 picks, including my favorite, Pulp fiction. And since we need directors, I'm going with

Well I'm glad this guy fell to me. He proved he could do some great things with my director, and he probably fields the best percentage of roles:acclaim, and is considered one of the finest method actors in this generation... my 2nd pick and first actor choice:

Another talent from behind the camera (though he does just as well in front):

Orson Welles

(IMG:http://i128.photobucket.com/albums/p182/mellowblissful/orson_welles_1_x.jpg)

While I have only seen a handful of his movies (granted they are major works such as Touch of Evil, Citizen Kane and the like) I simply adore his directorial style; most notably, his ability to play with depth and create organic illusions in a way that I never seen since.
