Worst Movie Directors of All Time

The Contenders: Page 3

41 Ron Howard

Someone should kick him in the face for making the live action Grinch movie.

Howard may have a great reputation but his directing disgusts me, especially A Beautiful Mind, the Grinch, Far and Away, and especially the daVinci Code. I have a cool slate with the Cinderella Man but I say he should take lessons from Tim Burton.

He'll never be good enough for a director

42 David Yates

Directed the last 4 films in the Harry Potter franchise

And deathly hollows 2 wasn't the best movie on the saga?

43 Tom Green Tom Green Michael Thomas "Tom" Green is a Canadian actor, rapper, writer, comedian, producer, director, talk show host, and media personality.

He is one of the most shallow people ever! After hearing about him, I start to wonder if his family even likes him. He clearly doesn't know how to be an actor, director, or comedian! He's completely nonsensical! He is a prime example for having no talent

If I ever met him, I'd mock him openly to the public for throwing his already useless life down the sewers

44 Jan De Bont

Pretty much all his films are between mediocre and sucky.

Both him, Roland Emmerich, and Michael Bay are similar to each other.

He, Michael Bay, and Roland Emmerich have both things in common:

45 Rod Amateau

The garbage pail kids is enough

46 Josh Trank

Come on guys, give him a break, he's made good stuff, Chronicle was my favorite movie of 2012, and let's be honest, Fantastic Four wasn't really his fault, blame FOX for chopping so much of the movie off, I just think Trank is getting a ton of hate that he really doesn't deserve

Unprofessional, immature, and very poor story telling skills. This guy shouldn't ever be allowed to touch a high budget film because he'll waste the money.

He ruined the Fantastic Four.

47 George Melies

Well... He proved cinema was an art

48 Jimmy ScreamerClauz

Spielberg at 80 and this guy at 147? Jesus people! - 445956

We can get him above Coppola - 445956

49 Shane Van Dyke

Director of 6 guns, paranormal entity, titanic 2, transmorphers, super shark, Arizona summer and The bold and the beautiful.

50 Brian De Palma
51 Robert Rodriguez Robert Rodriguez

Robert Rodriguez is one of the greatest movie directors ever to be given to the humanity of this rotten earth, why the hell is he here?

Never expressed anything great to the media

He's associated with quentin tarentino. no wonder he sucks.

52 David Zucker

All his movies suck.

53 Jerry Zucker

All his movies suck.

54 Jim Abrahams
55 Ben Affleck Ben Affleck

I think it's quite suspenseful.

Argo is one of the worst movies of all time.

He is of no doubt a bad example of acting and directing. Not to mention starring in the worst movie ever: Gilgi

Untalented as an acyor and director.

56 Paul Haggis

Crash is one of the worst movies of all time.

57 Oliver Stone

All his movies suck. I especially hated when he put his own theories in jfk.
