Who is your favorite movie director. I think Francis Ford Capolla and Stanly Kubrick are great. But my VERY FAVORITE would probably be Martin Scorsese. Who is your favorite?

stanley kubrick is great..a clockwork orange<33

but ima have to give it too Alfonso Cuaron the director of Children of Men (good good movie) and harry Potter and the Prisoner of azkaban, this man has very good ideas and thinks outside the box.
#10
Orson Welles, Charlie Chaplin, Elia Kazan, Stanley Kubrick, Francis Ford Coppola, Cecil B. Demille, Alfred Hitchcock, and Martin Scorsese are some of my favourites.
Edit: you're right. Can't write this list without Sergio Leone.

Kurbrick, Tarrentino, Rodriguez, Gilliam, Speilberg, Scorsese and Tom Hanks are all the top of my list. Also Sergio Leone for making some of my favourite films of all time bacause it's hard to top a spaghetti western. All thses guys are amazing but the one director that is my favourite is the one that wins by relatability and that's Kevin Smith. I have so much in common with the guy and I love all his films. He's an amazing story teller (if you've seen his Q and A's you'll know what I mean) and I love writing dialogue as much as he does.

Tom Hanks is a director? I know he directed That Thing You Do! but what else has he directed? Because I don't really consider actors that have directed one or two films to be true directors.

Also, I can't really say I care much for Spielberg. There's no denying that he's good with a camera, but his films are too commercial for my taste. They're good for entertainment, but once you're done watching them there is no real reason to watch them again. And I think what makes a great film director is the ability to direct films that at least hold up to, if not get better with, repeated viewings. I also consider Tarantino to be overrated. I like his films, but he's not the god many claim him to be.

Tarantino or F.F Coppola probably.

There are a ton of others, but they came to mind first, lol

I know Tom Hanks also did an episode of Band Of Brothers.

And I don't like a lot of Spielberg's stuff, but I put him because Duel was awesome.

Kevin Smith. Hands down.

All of his movies are amazing, they're consistently great (+/- Jersey Girl, your choice), and he's an overall amazing person.


Others, of course, like Kubrick, Apatow, Speilberg, Gilliam, Katsuhiro Otomo, Nolan, Wright, etc.

Smith is #1, though.

People tend to write off Spielberg because he's too commercial or not "artsy" enough.

Sorry, but that Director has created so many classic cinematic moments that have had an effect on me and I can very well watch them over and over again.

I mean seriously...

Indy trilogy, Jaws, Jurassic Park - Some of the best entertainment films ever made, so many classic moments. I love re-watching these film.

Empire of The Sun - His undisputed masterpiece in my opinion, absolutely beautiful film.

E.T. - Seriously, if this didn't touch you....

I don't even need to go into Schindler's List.

Clint Eastwood (Mystic River, Letters From Iwo Jima, Unforgiven)



Cameron Crowe (Almost Famous, Say Anything, Jerry Maguire)



Clint is the "best," but I can't decide who my favorite is.
