Stanley Kubrick (WAS). Hes dead now unfortunetly. Everyone seems to make a big deal about lucas, but i dont see why hes so great. Sure, the first three star wars films were very nice, but for god sakes, the new ones are a joke(Nice animation though). I guess of directors that are alive today... hmmmmm. I like Spike Jonze, but he isn't really yet on the level with some of these guys. Peter Jackson? once again, Lord of the rings wa s a great series, but he usually does really super chessy horrow films. Tim Burton is a genuis, and yes he is a director. To be honest, i have no idea who the "best" director is. I think it just depends on what you are looking for. They all have their strengths and weaknesses. biggrin

"the best action director"

This same (basically) topic has been posted before, and it's always going to end the same way. That there's not really a way to generalize like that. Just saying "Best Director" is like saying, what's the "Best food". There's too many different styles and genres that directors have. Results will always be inconclusive. If you ask me.

Interesting to mention S & M (ha!) - all due respect but they're not up to the standard of the other filmmakers mentioned, YET

They have vastly superior application of effects over other people in this community, & most probably other people their age, but I'm sure they'd admit themselves they've got a bit to go. They can only get better smile

Terry Gilliam isn't a director(if you mean the director of Monty Python) . That was Ian MacNaughton.

Steven Spielberg I'd say as being first on the list that doesn't exist.

I have favorites, but cannot rank them - except that spielberg's work has most impressed me out of all others.

Here's some that you missed: Martin Scorsese. David Lynch (there has to be a fan out there somewhere!). Paul Verhoven (gotta love 80's action). Francis Ford Coppolla and his kin. Tons of others.

And takke George Lucas of the list. He's a bad director. Definately not even among the "good" one and even more definately not amongst "the best".

yeah, I really don't see why Lucas would be there. he only did one decent star wars (ep IV).

I'd say tim burton too. his movies have such an amazing feel to them.

for some reason though, my most favorite directors always write their own movies too.

Have you seen his non-Star Wars movies? American Graffiti in particular is a classic, and in a totally different league to any of the Star Wars movies. Star Wars movies are kids' movies, I think people forget that sometimes.

As for him being a 'bad' director...that's somewhat ludicrous. A bad director simply could not make American Graffiti. Certainly he may not rank up with some others as a 'great' director, but he has undeniable skill and a drive to motivate others. His influence on the film industry has been huge and generally beneficial. Without Lucas, the quality of the cinema experience wouldn't be anything like as good as it is today.

Do not make the mistake of judging him on the last 3 Star Wars movies. Certainly you may be justified in disliking them, for they are hugely flawed, but don't let their hype and prominence overshadow his other achievements.

I was referring to Return of the Jedi.

Oh, and for the record I like the last two Star Wars movies as well for what they are. In fact, I even wrote an essay on why the Phantom Menace is underrated. razz

Slick, you'd better run away or delete that post before you get beat up.

As for John Woo - Mi2 is great. And so is The Killer and Hard Boiled!

Back to the point: Stop complaining about George Lucas. He isn't that bad of a director. I'm not a huge Star Wars fan, but I still think all of the movies are pretty decent.

Guess what isn't the best movie ever? Kill Bill! Hahahahaha!

I didn't like MI:2 much. The stunts were ridiculous way too often. Unbelievable to the point of being absurd. And the masks/make-up bit was done way too often; it almost became a running gag.

And if you were to take all of the slow-motion footage, and play it at actual speed, I think the running time for the entire movie would have been about 28 minutes.

and MI:2 is very bad - even if it were done by a debutee. the only good thing about MI2 is some of the music and a good trailer. that's it.

Kill Bill is overrated, and so is Tarantino. MI:2 wasn't great, but was worth seeing in theatres. Hard Boiled is awesome.

The Star Wars movies have very good art direction, but Lucas doesn't know how to capture the story and characters. LOTR is, of course, very good, but it wasn't all Jackson's doing, unlike some other films by other directors.

M. Night Shyamalan. Best director alive.

And John Lasseter. He is right up there, too.

And the guy sitting next to me thinks Gore Verbinski should be on the list as well.

How about Hitchcock? John Ford? Orson Welles? John Musker & Ron Clemens?

Ed Wood? Steve Oedekerk? tard

John Lasseter is a genius.

Gore Verbinski must be a pretty damn good director for taking the Pirates of the Carribean script and turning it into an ok film.

Oh, and MI2 is one of the most boring films I've ever seen.

I think "M:I-2" has the best action sequences to come out of Hollywood. And I've watched them through hundreds of times, sometimes frame by frame, you really have to appreciate good action to see how each shot interacts perfectly with the ones around it, no one could do that as well as that. Spot on.
