Most Overrated Film Directors

The Contenders: Page 2XW

21Ethan Coen
22Dennis Dugan
23Zach Braff
24M. Night Shyamalan

Shyamalan, cut it out with your movie twists! They're not clever!

25Paul Thomas Anderson

The worst of all. Its impossible to stand his movies, Most of the scenes are useless and take movie in no direction. But major disaster is the dialogues, all his films require superb edit. In turn good edit can chop off those films by 45%

26Wes Craven
27Sofia Coppola
28Woody AllenHeywood "Woody" Allen is an American actor, comedian, filmmaker, playwright and musician, whose career spans more than six decades.

Same jokes over and over again. Maybe two or three movies with a descent ending but otherwise his endings sucks on so many of his movies. His characters are most of the time always the same ( a lawyer, a girl who works on a art gallery, an artist, a writer... ). He's suposed to be great and the best director in showing us New York ( but it's always Mannathan, the village... I think that Martin Scorsese is a Thousand times better to show us the " real " New York ). There's also too many jewish comments and humor in his movies ( he's suposed to be an atheist? ). His ideas of most of his films have no originality ( most of his stories are rewritings of Ingmar Bergman movies ). I'm not saying that he's one of the worst directors and some movies ( not many ) are worth watching but he gets too many credits. Overrated!

29Dario Argento

Not really overrated. He's one of the first directors to give us some " good B-movies " in the late sixties and early seventies in sex-violence-horror genres. Many directors and movies were inspired afterwards by his movies.
