Most Overrated Film Directors
The Contenders: Page 2
The Coens are near the top. They don't miss. Their worst movie, if there was one may fall into just good.
The majority of their movies are solid and as good as it gets.
Kevin Smith and the end of the 90s was kind of like when a hippie stops doing so many drugs and realizes they have no idea why they were listening to the Grateful Dead that whole time.V 1 Comment
Guardians of the galaxy is the worst out of all the movies he's directed
Honestly, what a terrible director
He should be number 1
Shyamalan, cut it out with your movie twists! They're not clever!
Same jokes over and over again. Maybe two or three movies with a descent ending but otherwise his endings sucks on so many of his movies. His characters are most of the time always the same ( a lawyer, a girl who works on a art gallery, an artist, a writer... ). He's suposed to be great and the best director in showing us New York ( but it's always Mannathan, the village... I think that Martin Scorsese is a Thousand times better to show us the " real " New York ). There's also too many jewish comments and humor in his movies ( he's suposed to be an atheist? ). His ideas of most of his films have no originality ( most of his stories are rewritings of Ingmar Bergman movies ). I'm not saying that he's one of the worst directors and some movies ( not many ) are worth watching but he gets too many credits. Overrated!
The worst of all. Its impossible to stand his movies, Most of the scenes are useless and take movie in no direction. But major disaster is the dialogues, all his films require superb edit. In turn good edit can chop off those films by 45%
Is in capable of original idea's, cannot write to save his life, hasn't had a single good movie, and just re-hashes the same idea's again and again, nothing but a one trick fan-boy
A one trick player! Can't even direct to save his life! Mother is going to bomb the box office! Why the hell is anyone even anticipated for it? Black Swan was his only good movie and the rest are trash! Take lessons from Spielberg or Ridley Scott please! But since he's already an insult to those great directors, I highly doubt it. Cause he is too busy hooking up with an overrated to the extreme annoying actress! Yeah, I'm talking to you, J Law.
Not really overrated. He's one of the first directors to give us some " good B-movies " in the late sixties and early seventies in sex-violence-horror genres. Many directors and movies were inspired afterwards by his movies.
A one-trick pony, unlikable characters acting tough, yawn
