    If we're talking top 10 directors, we'd probably see even more of the same answers

    furthermore, music and film are extremely different mediums. so...

    Of course. A lot of people will call Seven Samurai one of their favorites, but you are not going to see too many Americans cite any 1950's Japanese music. The costs involved in film and the people required to finish a project are significantly different than music, which significantly alters the output as compared to music.

    Exactly. Film is 100s of years newer. Pop film has the burden of thematics of characters of visuals of production value.

    Top 10 Directors would be a fun one for sure! I'm sure everyone would have Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese, David Fincher, Quentin Tarantino. I'd probably be alone in saying that Zack Snyder and Matthew Vaughn lol.

    I think Spike Jonze would come up too. I've already seen a few of his movies mentioned here, and he's probably the most consistent director I can think of

    Besides Allen and Kurbrick, who? *ducks and hides away from lack of film knowledge*

    Edit: Oh, I know Welles did Citizen Kane, duh. I've also seen Thin Red Line by Malick but that's it from him.

    James Cameron IMO doesn't have a real miss in his whole discography, always innovating effects and did two of my favorite action movies (T2 and True Lies) so I feel like he'd be in my top 10.

    I limited it to only directors I've seen three or more films of, so Wong Kar-Wai, Chan-wook Park, Jeff Nichols, Paul Thomas Anderson, and Edgar Wright are out.

    Ten years ago, I probably would've also said Tim Burton.

    I could probably make one for animated films, but it would include a lot of anime directors.

    They are all pretty well known. I thought it was too tied to the canon but I could not justify anyone else.

    Off the top,

    Nolan
    Kubrick
    Miyazaki
    Fincher
    Wes Anderson
    Tarantino
    Coen Brothers
    Danny Boyle
    Villeneuve
    Scorcese

    Maybe Lord/Miller if they keep the hot streak going. Woody Allen, Aronofsky, and Jonze are others I like but haven't seen enough of their work yet. Spielberg seems like an obvious choice, but he's become a little hit-or-miss over the years.

    EDIT: CARPENTER! Ahh how could I forget.

    Johnson could def be up there for me later, but I need to see more from him. Love Brick and Looper though.

    Spielberg's body of work is completely ridiculous. No one else like that.
     
  24. Looking down the list of director credits, you're right. I guess it's just some of his most recent stuff I haven't been very enthusiastic about. Hook forever a classic, though.

    Yeah hes directed or been attached to lots and lots of projects that dilute his filmography. I've felt that way. The way hes been commissioned by pop studios over the decades makes him sorta like the Michaelangelo of film. His result are all across the board though.
