I love this fuckin site.......

Anyway, my favorites are George A. Romero and Quentin Tarantino respectively, not bothered listing movies and specifics right now, but these two filmmakers have made films that have continuously entertained me, and given me food for thought once the movie is over.

Kevin Smith, Sam Raimi and Peter Jackson are note worthy for me as well, bot not on the level of these two.

I know these are all very typical choices, Im not a huge movie nut though, least not yet

Update: Nolan is now grappling with the Coens for first place after the amazing Inception, which gives him four bona fide masterpieces along with the ones I mentioned earlier.

Also, I've been watching more Eastwood movies and he's definitely #3 behind the Coens and Nolan. His pre-2003 masterpieces are limited to the Westerns he directed, but from Mystic River to the present he's made seven masterpieces. Talk about hitting your stride late, he started his best streak as a director at age 73. Goddamn!

AGREED. Throw Hitchcock in there to make my top 3.

1) Stanley Kubrick - Full Metal Jacket & The Shining are 2 of the 5 best films ever made.

4) Martin Scorsese - Shutter Island, Raging Bull, The Departed, Taxi Driver, Goodfellas and many others. How people left him off their lists is mind blowing to me. A serious case could be made for him to be #1

3) Quentin Tarantino - Some people say overrated. They're wrong. Only Kubrick created 2 better movies back to back than Dogs and Pulp.

4) Kevin Smith - No one has made me laugh harder.

5) The Coen Brothers - Raising Arizona, Lebowski & No Country for Old Men. Too bad they followed up their best movie with a total piece of crap Burn after Reading. Too many clunkers to be rated higher

Christopher Nolan - Batman Begins, Dark Knight, Prestige, Memento, Insomnia, and Inception are all great fucking movies.

David Fincher - Zodiac, Fight Club, Seven, and Now the Social Network. I don't care that he did Alien 3 (Which I haven't even seen), those 4 incredible movies, plus one that was decent (Panic Room) put him up there as one of the best in my books.

I honestly think those are the only two directors where i'll see their name and feel that I have to see it based on their name alone.

My list is so different now. Well, not different, but longer. Once I finish this damn blog I'll have to comprehensively reconsider everything I thought I knew about movies.
