It appears as though Gwyneth Paltrow is putting her film career on hold to become a...blogger!?! Much has been made about the Oscar winner's website/newsletter GOOP, where she tries to improve our pathetic lives by making us more like her through suggestions and recommendations. And when it's not Gwyneth telling us to go eat at Mario Batali's restaurant in New York, it's her famous friends, who she often enlists to share with us their many favorite things.

Lucky for us, Gwyneth is friends with a lot of great directors, and she asked a few of them to share with us 5 films that we should go out and see. Steven Spielberg likes something called THE GODFATHER and Wes Anderson likes Costa-Gavras' MISSING. Jon Favreau's a fan of Kurosawa's SEVEN SAMURAI and Sofia Coppola digs LET THE RIGHT ONE IN. Click here for the rest of their choices.

Extra Tidbit: Sofia Coppola loves Chris Rock. Who`da thunk it?

I love that Spielberg threw The Best Years of Our Lives on his list. That's one of my favorite films. Definitely recommended.

Cool list

I like seeing what films influence directors. Favs did make a mistake, he said Seven Samurai was remade into Roger Cormans The Last Starfighter. Idiot! It was Battle Beyond The Stars,which I saw as a kid starring John-Boy from the Waltons. Watch The Last Starfighter now, the CG doesn't stand up too good.It looks like the stuff Robert Rodriguez puts out nowadays.
