Worst Movie Directors of All Time

The Contenders: Page 3XW

41Shane Van Dyke

Director of 6 guns, paranormal entity, titanic 2, transmorphers, super shark, Arizona summer and The bold and the beautiful.

42Ron Howard

Someone should kick him in the face for making the live action Grinch movie.

Howard may have a great reputation but his directing disgusts me, especially A Beautiful Mind, the Grinch, Far and Away, and especially the daVinci Code. I have a cool slate with the Cinderella Man but I say he should take lessons from Tim Burton.

He'll never be good enough for a director

As boring as his acting.

43David Zucker

All his movies suck.

44Jerry Zucker

All his movies suck.

45Jim Abrahams
46Ben Affleck

Argo is one of the worst movies of all time.

He is of no doubt a bad example of acting and directing. Not to mention starring in the worst movie ever: Gilgi

47Paul Haggis

Crash is one of the worst movies of all time.

48Jan De Bont

Pretty much all his films are between mediocre and sucky.

Both him, Roland Emmerich, and Michael Bay are similar to each other.

He, Michael Bay, and Roland Emmerich have both things in common:
TRASHY SUMMER BLOCKBUSTERS!

49James Cameron

He is a good director. I loved the way he did Avatar, Aliens, and the Abyss but I can't believe what a total selfish, commanding, disrespectful, and unreasonable person he is! I also loathe his dumb project, Titanic. I mean 11 Oscars, come on! It doesn't deserve even one! It's grossly overrated and bad scenes! Cameron really needs to strive on changing

It's not that I think his movies suck, I heard that he's supossed to be a jerk in real life.

Fools, everything saying than avatar and titanic are overrated and crap but nothing thinks in terminator 1 an 2 ans aliens, that movies are a legacy to the actions movies

I'd tell him to go to rehab to change is ego

50Stephen KingStephen Edwin King is an American author of contemporary horror, supernatural fiction, suspense, science fiction, and fantasy.

He only directed one movie (Maximum Overdrive) so he counts.

His movies and mini series' are the most un-scary things I've ever seen in my life

Wait a minute, that's not a movie director?

51Josh Trank

Unprofessional, immature, and very poor story telling skills. This guy shouldn't ever be allowed to touch a high budget film because he'll waste the money.

52Tim Burton

I won't deny that his movies were pretty creative back in the day, but at this point his style is just repetitive and boring

You know it's bad when a director manages make his own unique style feel repetitive

A solid B+! Burton has some light in his dark projects! I loved his Batman films, Sleepy Hollow and its effects, Sweeney Todd and its lyrics, Corpse Bride, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. However, I didn't like the dry project and hangover of Planet of the Apes, the poor 3D effects on Alice in Wonderland, the bad 'comedy' of Dark Shadows, and the pointless plot of Edward Scissorhands

His Batman films are overrated, and need I mention 'Alice in Wonderland', 'Planet of the Apes' and 'Dark Shadows'?

53Renny Harlin
54Tyler Perry
55John Moore
56Jon Favreau

He has to be the worst, he thinks we want to see him in the movie.

57Roger Allers
58David O. Russell

Totally overrated movies, three words only

American hustle is one of the worst movies of all time.

59Rob Minkoff

Wasn't this one of the guys who directed the lion king? Trust me I to can hardly believe it.
