Post Re: Favorite Directors

I agree wholeheartedly... it had so much potential too....

However, it wasn't a Burton directed film as Slim seemed to suggest, (but was produced by Burton I think...). It was actually the first real directing job straight out of film school of Shane Acker, based on his school film project, which explains a lot about the movie :p

Yes it is was produced by Burton
And the movie itself, it did have potential, but. Yeah... Wasn't that good, a good movie, but not a great one.

My favorite directors would have to be Roman Polanski and Tim Burton. I've seen many of their films and those are really great.

Post Re: Favorite Directors

as for myself, I can't say that I have any favorite directors, probably because I don't like today's movies and don't know old movies good enough.

I do like Tim Burton though, his movies are always fun to watch.

oh and also Tarkovsky, if anybody has heard of him.

I have a lot of not-favorite directors though beheh

Tarsem Singh

The Cell

The Cell was pretty average (lol Jlo) but both were simply stunning in their visuals/cinematography

Post Re: Favorite Directors

I think it is hard to rank directors from all time periods together. If I narrow it down to those that are currently making movies, then in my opinion it is the Coen brothers (No Country for Old Men) and then everyone else. I think they are simply in a class of their own as far as direction goes. However, I also like:

David Fincher (The Game)
Paul Thomas Anderson (Magnolia/There Will Be Blood (can't decide))
David O. Russell (I Heart Huckabees)
Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind)

as well as many others, but I thought I should keep it short.

Edit: I saw others were including specific films as well, so I have added my favorite from each director. I also noticed that only one other person has included the Coen brothers in their list. You're all mad! Mad I tell you!

A couple of the top off my head.
Akira Kurosawa - Seven Samurai, Ikiru, Sanjuro, etc.
Takashi Miike (bonkers director) - The Bird People In China, Dead or Alive, Chakushin Ari, Visitor Q, Ichi the Killer, etc
Ridley Scott. Directed my most favourite film of all time. - Blade Runner

Stalker and Solaris. Both very good films, although Stalker is a damn strange film.
