The truth is - I haven't even seen that much of his stuff. My main love is Apollo 13, but I'm also a huge fan of Arrested Development, Frost/Nixon, and A Beautiful Mind. So I'm not a super-fan by any stretch, but I have this deep-set love for him... and it's existed even before I started dating a ginger.
There's something about the stories he chooses to tell, namely in his directing. He tells stories of complex people or big moments in (mainly American) history. He doesn't shy away from complicated ideas, but he also delivers them in a way that makes you understand.
I just love him, so I need to see more of him. What is your favourite Ron Howard movie?
