One I haven’t watched in 15 years or so is Barton Fink which I remember being great and rather surreal.

These two guys is why Raising Arizona was so good. That's a movie I can watch over and over, which I have, and twice in the theater when it was released.

Mighty fine cereal flakes, Mrs. McDonough.

Just seemed like filler. I liked Raising Arizona, but there's nothing particularly memorable about it for me. I didn't see Big Lebowski when it first came out, and when I did finally watch it I found it to be overrated as hell. And the ending of No Country for Old Men pissed me off so much I wanted to punch somebody. I actually bought the blu ray having never seen it based on all the glowing recommendations and ended up mailing it to a CP member who really liked it.
There is definitely a Coen vibe, but they have tackled a lot of different genres and tried things. So it is not too surprising that most viewers don't have a film or two of theirs they don't like.

The only one I would actively avoid seeing again, say a buddy was having a Coen film night, is Inside Llewyn. But several posters have sung its praises.

I love TBL but I wouldn't particularly want to watch it again if I was sober.

I really liked this one the first time. But when you know what is coming the surreal vibe doesn't work as well.

NCOM and TBL tied for the lead.
