    I can't decide. I like Stone, Kubrick, and I'll throw in Scorcese for his direction of Goodfellas.

    No...him movies make the most money, but I don't think he has done anything the groundbreaking in a long while. The effects and the stories in Jaws and E.T. and Close Encounters were all top notch, mostly the stories, but other than "Schindler's List", he hasn't really done anything out of the ordinary. "Schindler's List" made me angry and cry and just...it was a good movie.
    I agree, Saving Private Ryan was too commercial, I didn't like it. Thought CATCH ME IF YOU CAN was pretty good though!

    He also had an acting part in "Smokey and the Bandit'!!!!!! That counts for something too......or maybe not.

    Ted Demme and Jonathan Demme are two totally different guys.

    Ted did BLOW and Airheads!


    JONATHAN is the Oscar Winning director of "Something Wild" "Silence of Lambs" and "Philadelphia" he also did "Beloved" which was his worst mistake!

    Edward Zwick by the way is the director of "Glory" "Legends of the Fall" and "The Last Samari"

    Mike Nichols is the director of "Wolf" and other Comedies

    Milos Foreman is the director of "People vs. Larry Flynt", "Man on the Moon" "One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest" and "Amadeus"
    My bad, damn there dhall, you still in a bad mod, heh?

    I guess the reason I dont know that much about the others is cause none of those movies float my boat......

    Could be one of the reason why I suck at the game Scene It too, LOL

    But I love every movie from Kubrick, and I can't say that about every director here.

    What about Michael Mann?

    What about Michael Mann? Heat, the Insider, Last of the Mohicans, Manhunter, The Thief, Ali, as well as episodes of Cheers, M*A*S*H, All in the Family and others in the 70's? He should at least be on the list, no? Also, so should Ridley Scott and Robert Altman.
