Very open minded dialogues in his movies. Always thinks positive.
How is this so far down? He directed great things like The Avengers and Firefly!V 1 Comment
The French Connection and The Exorcist alone put him in the Top 10
Harry Potter 5,6,7, and 8! Come on!
His only great installment is also the biggest masterpiece of all time. He might not have made more than 2 really great movies, and one of them is today the best rated movie of all time: "The Shawshank Redemption" - the movie which is on the top on Imdb.com with 1.6 millions votes and a rating of 9.3/10 - that's an extremely high rating! Imdb.com is also the biggest rating site with most users that exists, so you can with certainty say that "The Shawshank Redemption" is the best movie ever!
All his collaborations with actor Klaus Kinski (Nosferatu, Fitzcarraldo, Aquirre, the Wrath of God, Cobra Verde and Woyzeck) are incredible works of finest cinema.V 1 Comment
How is Abrams not higher on this list? He did Cloverfield, Mission Impossible 3, the first two excellent Star Trek reboots, and last but most certainly not least STAR WARS EPISODE 7.
HOW DID YOU NOT HAVE THE GREAT MALICK ON THE LIST yet that hack Burton is at #9
The tree of life says it all...
Maybe not as consistent with his movies like the Coen-Brothers, Burton, Tarantino or even Hitchcock ('Bugsy Malone' is one of the worst movies ever (in my opinion) and 'Evita' is pretty awful too), but 'The Wall', 'Midnight Express', 'Angel Heart', 'Birdy' and even 'Fame' are some of the greatest films ever.
Best British director of our time. One of the best directors of noir-action-crime films in that there are no others like them. Truly original and a brilliant rejection of Hollywood conventions.
Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch, Revolver, RocknRolla and Sherlock Holmes and its sequel
the guy is a legend
'Paris, Texas' is an incredible movie. Amazing cinematography, excellent cast, emotional story and a brilliant soundtrack.
Without him we couldn't have had the 1980's and the influence it spawned. He directed classics such as The Breakfast Club (my all time favorite), Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Sixteen Candles, Pretty In Pink, Home Alone 1 and 2 and Weird Science. He was also a great producer.
John Hughes and Chris Columbus both rock.
