bryan singer (he never really had it, fuckin' no talent!)
roger avery (he never really had it, fuckin' no talent!)
the wachowski brothers
ron howard (he never really had it, fuckin' no talent!)
So where do you buy your crack? This could be the dumbest shit I've read in ages.
do you actually like ron howard, roger avery and bryan singer?
So... are you negating the other names on the list now and backtracking or what?
I don't *love* Ron Howard, I've certainly loathed some of his work (Grinch and EdTv come to mind) but he's done some movies that are pretty good (Ransom, Apollo 13) and I'm looking forward to 'The Missing.' I don't see him making the same movie over-and-over as you so put it.
Again, Roger Avary does not make the same film over-and-over. Killing Zoe and Rules of Attraction are two vastly different films-- both of which I enjoy a lot. And you can't deny his contribution to Quentin's earlier works.
The film-geek in me loves The Usual Suspects, and the comic-geek loves the X-Men movies-- the 2nd more than the first.
I can understand you disliking individual films by certain directors, but dismiss them entirely is just foolish (especially since there's zero evidence/points in your 'argument').
If you want a real list of Hollywood hacks, think of people like John Badham, Peter Hyams, Jon Amiel, Jan De Bont, etc. These guys are merely hired guns, never are developing their own projects or writing anything original. But on the list you gave, I can name at least one great film (if not more) or at least one that's entertaining in the Hollywood way.
no they all suck. i'm sick of being disappointed by these filmmakers therefore they're hacks (to me). here's why...
star wars episode 1 and 2 -and- all the changes to the original trilogy.
you know they suck and so why bullshit about them.
jay and silent bob strike back.
there's only one note from this guy
the usual suspects = the most overrated film of the 90s! why does everyone like this movie anyway? its 100 minutes of prolouge.
thats a given....
hasn't made a good movie in 13 years with the exception of ED WOOD.
he really does nothing for me but everyone praises him like he was QT.
the wachowski brothers:
matrix is great but reloaded and revolutions were pointless and self-indulgent. completely disappointing! i'm a philosophy major so i know a great deal about philosophy and trust me, the matrix ain't nothing special. it's cookie-cutter philosophy. read a book!
how the hell did he win best director in 2001?
all of these directors are NOW buisness as usual filmmakers. they don't dare to be inspiring anymore so i dub them as being hacks. some of these filmmakers never really had it to begin with like bryan singer (man do i hate that guy). they put out a string of disappointing films that have no real substance and a lot eye candy to make mindless bullshit movies to make money. for shame for poisoning the art of film!
my 2 cents...
you can add john singleton to that list too.
