    Scorsese all the way, the guy has an awesome resume. Gangs of New York, Goodfellas, The Aviator, The Departed, and Casino just to name a few. Ron howard is a close second though and he isnt even on your list.

    Christopher Nolan is pretty good. I also like M. Night and James Gunn. There are lots of movies I feel have good direction, but I hardly ever remember to check who the director actually was.

    I didn't think of him... I only put the directors I first thought of. Personally, when I think of Ron Howard I think of The Da Vinci Code and I didn't think that was a great film.

    When they moviefy a book it NEVER is decent. I don't know, I can eat up Dan Brown's novels but the movies were pretty lacklustre. Inferno movie was changed completely at the end IIRC. I think Spielberg will always go down well. Tarintino is pretty damn good as well. So is M Night actually if you're a horror fan which I most certainly am, Kubrick's films are also very unusual but I'm a fan of.

    Personally I like Ridley Scott just for the movie Kingdom of Heaven, one of the greatest and significant movies of it's decade.

    A few good directors that were neglected: Guy Ritchie (Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels), Clint Eastwood (Gran Torino, Heartbreak Ridge), Mel Gibson (Braveheart, Hacksaw ridge), George Miller (Mad Max)

    I liked the movie as well but I found it to be a fun film rather than any masterpiece.

    David Fincher is a good one. Another good one is Peter Jackson but I forgot to put him in the poll.

    Haha, yeah, I personally think he is the weakest among the others I have named. And I´ve forgot David Lynch, Roman Polanski and John Waters of course or any of the old classic ones like Orson Welles, Erich von Stroheim, Fritz Lang,Sergei Eisenstein, Murnau or Roger Corman.
