Most Overrated Film Directors
The Contenders: Page 2
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
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%
Shyamalan, cut it out with your movie twists! They're not clever!
Don't know him. But after seeing him on top of "greatest director" I had checked his movies on IMDB. But more than 70% of his movies got ratings between 5-6 on IMDB. - zxm

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.
