Oh yeah, it's perfect, all right.  It's just not correct.

I like Ridley Scott, but number 5 above all those others?  The others seem to fit, but just not in that order.  And then there are some personal favorites missing, like PTA, Linklater.  I'd like to see Malick on there and maybe even David Gordon Green, for that matter.  Actually there are so many that I'd want to see that it just would never be right until I can fit 50 in there.

But hey, I'll be on that list someday.  40 years from now, I'll own all of those mofos.  (That's how it goes; you've gotta shoot for the top)

Peter Jackson.....

What the hell.

What the hell.


Bad Taste, Meet the Feebles, Dead Alive and Heavenly Creatures


a bit disappointed not to see PTA or Lynch.....

or John Waters  :kiss:

[edit] and of course I forgot about Bergman

I'd say Scott and Spielberg don't belong

..Ridley Scott is on that list.

It's automatically shite.

Peter Jackson? I'm disappointed in Empire voters. How does Lynch not make that list? Godard? Bergman? There are an aweful lot of wonderful people missing.

Not a surprising magazine list.  I would bet that an Xixax Greatest Directors list wouldn't look too much different (once all the votes were in).  It might even look worse.  It might look a lot like this.

Swap Peter Jackson For Fellini

Swap Ridley Scott for Bergman

Swap QT for Anotnioni


Wilder and Kazan as well.

As much as I love Tarantino & PTA's films I couldn't put them on a "top ten" directors list. There are just too many other great directors with a fuller body of work over many more years.

David Lean instead of Ridley Scott
Jean-Luc Godard instead of QT
Charlie Chaplin instead of Woody Allen
Billy Wilder instead of Peter Jackson
Federico Fellini instead of Steven Spielberg
Music is your best entertainment value.
