Title.

After rewatching Django Unchained which had a good story and good acting, there were still some very Tarantino-esque scenes that I kinda hated in that movie. I'm not exactly sure who I would have preferred directing that movie, but Tarantino can get on my nerves a bit.

Name some that you guys think.

X-Men 3 & Spiderman 3.

Spider-Man 3 needed different studio execs, not director.

Hah, was just talking about this in the morning. World's Greatest Dad. And probably Fight Club.

Dan Harmon called from early 2014 and he says he wrote a show that says 2013 wants its easy target back

I liked Cabin in the Woods but had someone like Adam Wingard directed instead of Whedon it would have been one of the best horror films ever made tbh

Dark Knight Rises and Amazing Spider-Man 2. Either better directors or writers cause those movies coulda been something much greater. They were a mess.

I don't know how to break this to you, but Joss Whedon didn't direct Cabin In The Woods.

Oh yeah you're right, he produced and wrote, could have swore he directed but whatever. Doesn't change my point at all.

They were specifically made to cater to the lowest common denominator. They were moneymakers, plain and simple. Same with any film directed by Jerry Bruckheimer or Michael Bay.

I wish someone else had direction Synecdoche New York. Kaufmann is alright, but he's better at screenwriting than directing. I don't really know who I would've preferred though. Maybe Jonze?

Bruckheimer is not a director.

He's a producer, who has produced several big-name things. It was worth mentioning him since I was talking about "moneymaker" films. People seem to love to bitch about moneymaker films; that was my point. But not all films are supposed to be great works of art. Studios only care about ROI. They never give a shit about whether a film is a "work of art", with the exception of a few Indie studios.

After Jackie Brown, Tarantino just became too Tarantino.

What does a director do? Like I wouldn't even know what kind of things would make the direction bad.

They are the creative visionaries who have the most control over how to approach a story (unless they're strong armed by producers).

In this case Tarantino is both the writer and the director. But his vision for his later movies is to be extremely self-aware, which to me is a bad choice in direction.

He makes all the decisions you see on-screen. The angles, the length of the shots, how the actors perform, the lighting, everything. Other people deal with the technicalities, but the director makes all the decisions.

No. There is no argument to even be made, you're wrong and that is the end of the matter. Don't reply don't argue, you're wrong, accept it.


To the OP, just going to put the obligatory Michael Bay and M knight Shamalyn, awful awul directors.

You mean we should ignore the complete lack of understanding of tone and inconsistent narrative devices?

Transformers would have been instantly better without Michael Bay.

Most Michael Bay films would be better without Michael Bay.

I hold little hope for TMNT and whilst I'm giving it the benefit of the doubt and will watch it regardless of who is involved, I'm going to say that would be better without Michael Bay.

Dude I'd let you criticize anything about O Russell except his ability to manipulate tone (also his first four films). He's a genius at tone control, that's why he can make it look like he's doing so much with so little.


Actually, American Hustle would've definitely not benefited from a lack of Russell. It's a really, really shit film, sure, and what he's doing now is practically insulting whether intentional or not, but the only reason he's thriving is cuz he's good at tone control. The narratives he's making, well, that's another story I can't argue with ya there

This is definitely not true. The way I understand it is, while there's people who wanna sell a product quickly, there's also a majority of talented and intelligent people tryna make a good film. So, studios care. Like a lot.


And a lotta the films Bruckheimer made are pretty awesome anyway. Same with Michael Bay.

Meh, that's debatable.

I didn't say they weren't awesome, just that people like to shit on those two. I don't how many times I've heard someone go, "Oh, Bruckheimer produced it? Not even gonna see it" or "Michael Bay directed it? I hope it isn't completely ruined!".

That's silly, though. Lots of people have thrown poop at the screen and then someday came out with a neatly arranged bouquet, though.

Obligatory mention of the Star Wars prequels. No need to elaborate - you either agree with me, or you're sick of hearing people bash them. Or both even.

Kinda breaking thread rules here but:

If the cvnts over at AMC didn't force Frank Darabont out from directing The Walking Dead, TWD would have probably been competing as one of the greatest TV shows of all time.
