Our three-year anniversary is here! It’s been an awesome run, and we’ve really enjoyed interacting with you and sharing our reviews and articles.
The past two years we’ve had epic lists. Our first year we named the Ten Greatest Films Ever Made, and in year two we did the Ten Worst Movies We’ve Ever Seen. This year we’ve decided to name the Ten Greatest Director.
Here are the list of 45 directors, in no particular order, we will consider for the ten greatest ever. Each day we’ll both cut five from the list until we’re paired down to the Ten Greatest Directors.
Let us know which ones you think should stay, and which should go — and maybe some directors you thought should have been in the mix.
Francis Ford Coppola
Brian De Palma
Cecil B. DeMille
Paul Thomas Anderson
Joel and Ethan Cohen
Keep Sam Mendes for sure. Add David Fincher!
Stay tuned and find out! 🙂
Buster Keaton, Robert Wise, Charles Laughton (only one but what a one!), John Sturges, William Friedkin, Anthony Mann, John Frankenheimer
Charles Laughton waiting too long to direct. It’s a shame. Night of the Hunter is masterpiece. Friedkin has fizzled, unfortunately. But Exorcist and French Connection are timeless classics. Keep reading!
I reckon Quentin Tarantino, George Lucas, Martin Scorcese, Tim Burton, CHRISTOPHER NOLAN, and where is Peter Jackson?!
Peter Jackson was in the conversation, but he just doesn’t have a large enough body of work. LOTR were a technical achievement, but beyond that, he hasn’t done a lot. Kong was pretty good, but not enough.
😦 Terribly sad. But I get it. My biggest cash lies on Christopher Nolan and Quentin Tarantino then!
Oh, I would also like to put Sam Mendes on there, not bad at all!
