    You would be right to wonder. I would be a horrible, horrible film buff if my all time list did not include those names.

I rated them based on who I think are the best directors working today as well as who are my personal favorites. A guy like Kevin Smith who's movies I want to see as much if not more than every other director is near the bottom of my list because he is not the best but a favorite. This lst consists of current directors and how I rate them right at this minute.

          1. Paul Thomas Anderson
          2. Martin Scorcese
          3. Sam Mendes
          4. David Fincher
          5. Darren Aronofsky
          6. Kevin Smith
          7. Wes Anderson
          8. The Coen Brothers
          9. Quentin Tarantino
          10. David O. Russell
          good list, but mine is better :D

          you are a fool for even saying something like this...just because his comedy doesnt involing nutsacks being rubbed on drumsets, terrible overacting and overall stupidity doesnt mean its the same movie over and over again. He focuses on more important issues and although alot of his films share tendencies and actors, they are all extremely unique not only amongst themselves, but in all of Hollywood as well. In fact, I would have him higher on my list. My list would be based upon the excitement level when I hear a director is involved with a film, and the overall level of films they have produced, with a little bias thrown in for favourites. It would go:

          1. P.T Anderson
          2. David Fincher
          3. Sam Mendes
          4. Darren Aronofsky
          5. Martin Scorsese
          6. Wes Anderson
          7. Quentin Tarantino
          8. Christopher Nolan
          9. Ridley Scott
          10. The Coen Brothers

            • Just a heads up.. I always try to let you guys know about the good deals. DeepDiscount.com is doing a sale of 25% off all DVD's and Blu-Ray DVD's, I believe. The checkout code is "sale". Free shipping, can't go wrong.

              I may use this to buy the Alfred Hitchcock Masterpiece Collection. It's $88, but after the discount, it's $66. So I'd be paying $66 for 14 Hitchcock films, including Rear Window, Psycho, The Birds, Vertigo, and Rope. Sucks that "Strangers on a Train" and "Dial M for Murder" aren't on there, though.

              Does anyone know of a bigger Hitchcock DVD Collection?

                  I saw Rocknrolla. Better then Lock, Stock, worse then Snatch. That said, I wasnt the biggest fan of Lock, Stock and I loved Snatch, so take it with a grain of salt. definately slower then I thought it would be, but similar kinetic filmmaking to Guy's previous films and some lovable characters to boot. I gave it a 7.5 outta 10, definately worth seeing. Even the girl I saw it with liked it, so when girls like guy ritchie movies you know its class.

                      I could be the only person alive who thinks Russell Brand is funny as ****, so Im not disappointed by this news at all.

                      • Lock Stock and Barrel was terrific. I own Snatch but I havent seen it in a long time. I need to see it again.

                        I am really pumped for Sherlock Holmes.

                            I just saw the list I wasnt sure if it was current or all time.
