    Shit, I cant believe I forgot Argento. I probably watch his movies more than any other director. Have you seen Bittersweet Life by ji woon kim? Pretty dope.


    And Teq, you never contribute anything positive.

    Chris Columbus. (memorable work: Home Alone)
    Chris Stokes. (memorable work: You Got Served, House Party 4)
    John G, Avildsen. (memorable: Rocky, 8 Seconds, Karate Kid III)


    Seriously -

    Ridley Scott
    Clint Eastwood (i think he's a horrible actor, but underrated as a director)
    Steven Soderbergh

    naaawwww

    i hope you made a mistake and forgot to put that above "seriously"

    he's rated about where he needs to be, if not a tad overrated

    martin scorsese > clint eastwood

    and, clint has won two best director oscars while scorsese has none

    million dollar baby and mystic river were both wildly overhyped

    the outlaw josey wales and unforgiven are great, though... i'm anxious to see these two wwii flicks though



    other two choices are nice

    i think youve mistaken me for someone who cares enough to make a distinction. You, nimrod, that other kid I dont like. Youre all pond scum and as such your sins are shared.

    I only say it, because i think most people view him as an actor instead of a director, and he's better at directing than he is acting.

    A few that come to mind are: Oceans 11, Traffic, Grays Anatomy, Out of Sight, The Limey...and then for Scott...Gladiator, Matchstick Men, Hannibal, Black Hawk Down, Thelma and Louise, and Blade Runner.
    I like a lot of their movies, but there are a few I haven't seen. I'll have to go down the list a little later.

    I can't wait for 'The Argentine'. I hate the whole Che' trend, but I want to see how Benicio Del Toro handles the part.

    surprising that that would be one of your choices

    i've noticed you hate almost every trend there is

    why do you hate it? and, which che trend are you referring to? the one in film or found in "college popular culture"?

    the motorcycle diaries was a very good and moving film...

    a straightforward portrait with no glorification... i believe any che hater would be able to appreciate it and not be offended

    Yeah, i saw blade runner a long time ago in school, and enjoyed it,

    Anyway - mainly the pop-culture shit with che'. The glorification of a Stalinist?....doesn't make sense to me. People act like he's some sort of hero, when he was a cowardly murderer.
