Greatest Movies by Big-name DirectorsWhy are these men famous? For these movies, of course!
The Top Ten
I think this is his second best--it's still great. At number 1 I'd put Schindlers List. One of the best movies of ALL time
Spielberg is noted with some of the greatest WWII films to yet be made, and this by far is his best. With incredible graphics and honest display, WWII has not been so well shown, and this film still falls short of the sacrifice given by the soldiers. - everton96
Best Movie: Jaws - BeatlesFan1964
Gibson is one of the greatest film producer/directors of all time, and he correctly displays the death of our Lord where others have failed trying. True to the Bible, and still somewhat lacking, the Passion is one of the greatest films of all time. - everton96
Best Movie: Apocalypto - BeatlesFan1964
Lucas has created a series unmatched by any other of its kind. With an allstar cast and incredible graphics for its time, it just goes to show you: Star Wars is George Lucas, and George Lucas is Star Wars. - everton96
THX1138 - BeatlesFan1964
Depicting one of the saddest events in history, intertwining it with a love story... all done in great cinematography with incredible music... James Cameron has made a timeless classic. - everton96
Best Movie: T2 - BeatlesFan1964
Duh! Francis Ford Coppola. He did The Outsiders!
A story that should be told, of great American patriotism and sacrifice, Paul Greengrass has created one of the most emotionaly moving testaments to American pride and freedom in history. - everton96
Peter Jackson took one of the most intricate, detailed, complex plots, and made one of the most impressive films of all time, the third, Return of the King, winning thirteen Oscar Awards, including best motion picture. - everton96
Heavenly Creatures - BeatlesFan1964
Any superhero would be proud to be directed by Nolan. - everton96
Memento - BeatlesFan1964
Such a profound and important movie!
Another Spielberg film is in the top ten, which shouldn't be a surprise. Depicting the Holocaust, not an easy task, was done exceptionally well, showing the horror, tragedy and sacrifice of WWII which none have ventured to display before. - everton96
He didn't direct this. - BeatlesFan1964
Gibson also makes the list twice with the riveting story of William Wallace, of which only he could do. - everton96
Another Greengrass masterpiece makes the list, the one that made him famous. Great plot with incredible graphics, The Bourne Series tops many, many action films. - everton96
Doug Liman directed this. - BeatlesFan1964
