Hmm. I usually don't put a whole lot of stock into who's directing a movie, but I'll see anything the Coen brothers do. There are a couple who I love for creating/resurrecting a franchise but whose other work I am otherwise unfamiliar with (Nolan and Peter Jackson come to mind). Spielberg has a couple of clunkers, but I love most of his stuff.
