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...

george lucus:
star wars episode 1 and 2 -and- all the changes to the original trilogy.
you know they suck and so why bullshit about them.

kevin smith:
jay and silent bob strike back.
there's only one note from this guy

bryan singer:
the usual suspects = the most overrated film of the 90s!  why does everyone like this movie anyway?  its 100 minutes of prolouge.

brett ratner:
thats a given....

tim burton:
hasn't made a good movie in 13 years with the exception of ED WOOD.

roger avery:
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!

ron howard:
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.

You are pointing out one of the films by these filmmakers and ignoring the rest of their filmography.  You are an idiot.

This is getting dumb. I agree with parts of both sides, but the way this discussion is going about is dumb.

Okay.  So if you think he's such a fucking hack-job, why do you you own all of his movies on dvd?  I mean, you even have Clerks: The Animated Series and Drawing Flies.  What a hypocrite (see the link in his sig to the dvd collection).

i used to like kevin smith but watching those movies again i realized that he lost a step after CHASING AMY.  i've also been meaning to trade in DRAWING FLIES.  boo-boo!

i watched Empire strikes Back today.....i forgot how funny it was......the dialogue, acting, story, sets, costumes, etc are 10 times better in the original trilogy......this might have to do with the fact that Lucas  didn't direct or write the screenplay for Empire

does anyone know just HOW involved he was in the ones he didn't direct?
