Worst Movie Directors of All Time

The Contenders: Page 3XW

41Tyler Perry
42Shane Van Dyke

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

43Ron 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.

44David Zucker

All his movies suck.

45Jerry Zucker

All his movies suck.

46Jim Abrahams
47Ben 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

48Paul Haggis

Crash is one of the worst movies of all time.

49Jan 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:

50James 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

51Stephen 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?

52Rod Amateau

The garbage pail kids is enough

53Josh 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.

54Tim 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'?

55Renny Harlin
56John Moore
57Jon Favreau

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

58Roger Allers
59David O. Russell

Totally overrated movies, three words only

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

60Rob Minkoff

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