Can't be sure from the phrasing. Are you saying you're taking Coppola out?

I think he's making her an offer she can't refuse.

Am I the only one around here who really liked Baby Driver?

I think it is his best...

I can think of a few in Coppola's filmography. I'm really surprised she's still standing actually, given the reputation Somewhere and The Bling Ring get.

I'll go with Coppola, for these two specifically, but not exclusively.  I'm usually cold to her films, though I did enjoy The Beguiled.     

Can't be sure from the phrasing. Are you saying you're taking Coppola out?

Sorry for the confusing wording.  Yes, I'm taking down Coppola, mainly for Somewhere and The Bling Ring, but I also didn't care for Marie Antoinette or even The Virgin Suicides

FLY is more or less correct on this one

Nicole Holofcener made Friends with Money, and while it certainly could be worse it's not a good movie.

Can you please take Hayao Miyazaki off the list? Indifference weighs heavier than dislike.
