Postby Haggis_McMutton on Wed Feb 20, 2013 6:29 am

Now taking nominations. Feel free to specify which movies you particularly liked.

Here's mine: Kubrick

Which movies? Pretty much all of them. Strangelove, 2001, Clockwork Orange, Full Metal Jacket, Shinning, Eyes Wide Shut, Lolita, Paths of glory, Barry Lindon.
I mean seriously, what the hell can you say about the guy.

That was my immediate thought when I read the thread title.
And remember what the poet said – “in booty there is loot, and in loot booty.” Or sump’n like that.

Perhaps 'best' in the sense that he makes lotsa money. Not even including his influence as a producer.

I don't know that I could give just one. I will say that I think the best directors currently working are the Coen Brothers.

Ditto. I consistently watch and come back to Coen Bros more than just about anybody and am always amused and entertained.

I also like Aronofsky a lot.

Hmm, I don't know about 'best', but Darren Aronofsky has always held a fond spot in my cinematic experience.

edit: apparently I didn't read Gunner's post. Wha-oops.

I've always liked the majority of Akira Kurosawa's films.

I will go old school with John Ford.
For drama I always like watching How Green Was My valley, Grapes of Wrath and Sergeant Rutledge.
For comedy Donavon's Reef, Mister Roberts.
For westerns The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, Stagecoach and the Searchers to name a few.

I'm not a connoisseur but I have several that I like:

Woody Allen
Gus Van Sant
Scorsese
Kubrik
Tarantino
the Coen brothers
Coppola

in no particular order, and I'm surely forgetting someone.


Also, Scotty must be dying to reply Christopher Nolan.

It's tough since there are a lot of directors that people either love or hate, like Tarantino or Wes Anderson. I like both of those and Kubrick as well.

Kubrick's films are too good. I'm picking him over Tarantino just because his are older and have survived longer so far.
