NK1998

The Top Ten

1 Quentin Tarantino - Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill Quentin Tarantino - Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill Quentin Jerome Tarantino is an American filmmaker and actor. His films are characterized by non-linear storylines, satirical subject matter, an aestheticization of violence, utilization of ensemble casts consisting of established and lesser-known performers, references to popular culture, soundtracks ...read more.

Kinda disagree here. Can't disagree with Pulp Fiction being one of his best movies. But Django Unchained is also very popular. I think its more popular than Kill Bill. Plus Inglourious Basterds also deserves to be here. - zxm

Inglourious Basterds>Kill Bill - BeatlesFan1964

Kill Bill sucks and is nowhere near as good as the other two. Maybe Jackie Brown should have taken KB's place instead. - Mrveteran

2 Christopher Nolan - The Dark Knight, Memento, Inception Christopher Nolan - The Dark Knight, Memento, Inception

Most of his movies are good. This man thinks before making a movie. - zxm

The Prestige, Interstellar and The Dark Knight Rises were also good. - zxm

3 Martin Scorsese - Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, Goodfellas Martin Scorsese - Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, Goodfellas Martin Charles Scorsese is an American director, producer, screenwriter, actor, and film historian, whose career spans more than 53 years. He is best known for directing films such as Mean Streets, Taxi Driver, The Last Waltz, Raging Bull, The King of Comedy, After Hours, The Last Temptation of Christ, ...read more.

I think this man should be #1 because I don't think he's made a single movie that was bad, at least not as far as I know - Mcgillacuddy

Yes these are his best movies. But I enjoyed The Departed and Shutter Island more than these movies. - zxm

4 Steven Spielberg - Raiders Of The Lost Ark, Schindler's List, Jurassic Park Steven Spielberg - Raiders Of The Lost Ark, Schindler's List, Jurassic Park

Where is Saving Private Ryan? - jack2244

Should be number 1 - WinchesterGirl26

E.T, Saving Private Ryan and Jaws also should be here. But this man has got great movies. More than 3 movies. - zxm

Jaws, Raiders, E.T. - BeatlesFan1964

5 Stanley Kubrick - 2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange, The Shining Stanley Kubrick - 2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange, The Shining Stanley Kubrick was an American film director, screenwriter, producer, cinematographer, editor, and photographer.

Full Metal Jacket and Spartacus are also very famous. - zxm

Barry Lyndon>Shining - BeatlesFan1964

Eyes Wide Shut is his second best in my opinion, after ACO. An excellent tale of psychological and philosophical complexity, but maybe it is too European to be considered one of his classics on a worldwide scale. It is based on Arthur Schnitzler's "Traumnovelle", and even though the setting was changed to America of the 90s, it is a very faithful adaption. Schnitzler was the frienemy of Siegmund Freud, and you can easily see his influence in the work. - Martin_Canine

6 Alfred Hitchcock - Psycho, Vertigo, Rear Window Alfred Hitchcock - Psycho, Vertigo, Rear Window Sir Alfred Joseph Hitchcock, was an English-American film director and producer, at times referred to as "The Master of Suspense".

Psycho's been his best movie no doubt in it. But The Birds and Rebecca are also very famous movies of his. - zxm

In my opinion, Rebecca is his second best movie after Psycho. It may not be a crime movie, but the pressure put on Mrs. de Winter by Ms. Denvers' obsession for Rebecca gets more and more intense throughout the movie until you start feeling claustrophobic. It starts off as a Cinderella story and turns darker and darker each minute. - Martin_Canine

7 Francis Ford Coppola - The Godfather, the Godfather Part II, Apocalypse Now
8 James Cameron - Terminator 2, Aliens, Titanic James Cameron - Terminator 2, Aliens, Titanic

Should be The Terminator, Aliens, and Terminator 2: Judgment Day - jack2244

NaWh, Aliens, Terminator 2, True Lies - VideoGamefan5

9 Hayao Miyazaki - Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, Howl's Moving Castle
10 Robert Zemeckis - Forrest Gump, Back To The Future, Who Framed Roger Rabbit

Can't argue about Forrest Gump and Back To The Future. But tie between Cast Away and Who Framed Roger Rabbit. - zxm

The Contenders

11 Edgar Wright - Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, the World's End

I absolutely adore Shaun of the Dead. One of my all-time favorite comedies. And Hot Fuzz was also really really good. Still have to see the World's End but I expect it to be good too. Edgar Wright is just a genius. - cjWriter1997

12 Charlie Chaplin - Modern Times, the Great Dictator, City Lights
13 The Cohen Brothers - Fargo, The Big Lebobwski, No Country for Old Men

It's "Coen", not "Cohen". - BeatlesFan1964

Yes, these are their most famous movies. But Inside Llewyn Davis and True Grit were amazing too. Especially True Grit. Blood Simple and Miller's Crossing were also good. - zxm

14 Frank Capra - It's a Wonderful Life, It Happened One Night, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington
15 Woody Allen - Annie Hall, Vicky Cristina Barcelona, Manhattan Woody Allen - Annie Hall, Vicky Cristina Barcelona, Manhattan Heywood "Woody" Allen is an American actor, comedian, filmmaker, playwright and musician, whose career spans more than six decades.

Annie Hall, Crimes and Misdemeanors, Manhattan - BeatlesFan1964

16 Roman Polanski - Repulsion, Chinatown, Rosemary's Baby

Hmm, I think The Pianist is more famous than Repulsion and considered as one of him greatest movies. - zxm

17 Brian de Palma - Scarface, Carrie, the Untouchables
18 David Fincher - Fight Club, Seven, The Social Network

Gone Girl, Zodiac, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, The Game are also good. - zxm

19 Ki-Duk Kim - Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter... and Spring, 3 Iron, Samaritan Girl
20 Ingmar Bergman - The Seventh Seal, Wild Strawberries, Persona
