IMDb takes a closer look at the signature trademarks of the world's greatest film directors.
- JJ Abrams. Hardly an icon of directors, just the one who managed to do the most franchises.
- Rian Johnson. Critics are so drowned by boobs in his movies that they feel compelled to give him positive reviews. Just kidding. Plus the fact that he hasn't really made anything good, just smug, self-important movies. He also has a laughingly low score on the site, showing how popular he is.
- Ava Duverney. She's probably the lamest one here. Even worse is the fact that she had a chance to prove herself with A Wrinkle in Time and blew it so completely and utterly I don't even want to watch any more of her movies.
- A bunch of obscure weirdos. While this isn't bad in and of itself, I feel like some of these episodes could be given to more interesting people. Instead we get people like the director of Disney's live action Mulan (huh?), the director of James Bond 25 No Time to Die (Are they advertising new movies?), and others who don't seem to have a distinct style and are inexplicably valued by arty communities only. [Edit: Patty Jenkins? If she didn't direct Wonder Woman we wouldn't even be talking about her! I think the videos would be better if they focused on more accomplished directors with well-rounded filmographies instead of new-comers who only have something like 3 films to their name. As of this writing, Patty Jenkins has only two released full-length movies to her name. TWO! I mean, I have nothing against her, but can't we wait until she's defined her style a little more?????? ]
Directors that it would be cool to see:
- John Hughes (king of 80s teen movies)
- Sergio Leone (He invented a very distinct style right out of the blue)
- maybe Sam Raimi (Again, very distinct style)
- Mel Gibson (I said it once, I'll say it again, he is one of the best directors still alive)
- Frank Tashlin (Yes, no one knows who this is unless they're 80 years old but he was the king of live-action cartoons with many, many noticeable themes and trademarks throughout his films.)
- John Frankenheimer (He's basically the natural evolution of Orson Welles with something like a five decade career.)
- John Woo (Everyone knows his trademarks but it would still be a fun video.)
- Mel Brooks (Spoof master.)
- Francis Ford Coppola (I'm kind of surprised he isn't already here. Does he not have any trademarks at all?)
-Akira Kurosawa (It wouldn't be complete without him.)
-Wait a minute, what about Terry Gilliam?
And there's so many others that could be done, I hope IMDB just keeps churning them out and I wish it wouldn't take them so long to make.
