Tossin’ It Out There: Who’s YOUR Favorite Director?

alfred_hitchcock[Alfred Hitchcock voice] Good morning. [/Alfred Hitchcock voice]

Yesterday’s “Rear Window” post brought some of the comments around to Alfred Hitchcock and his directorial prowess. That put it in my mind to turn this week’s discussion topic to the subject of directors.

Who’s your favorite? Will it be one of the big names, like Spielberg, Scorsese, Kubrick, or Hitchcock himself? Or will it be some of today’s auteurs, such as Paul Thomas Anderson or Darren Aronofsky? How about the Coen Brothers? Or Quentin Tarantino? I’m sure that everyone has a director or two whose projects they eagerly anticipate, or whose filmography they’re checking off like a check list.  

Which is (are) YOURS? Is there a director who speaks to you more than others? Is there anyone you think can absolutely do no wrong?

Let’s hear it! Who’s YOUR Favorite Director?

Director Talk: Ridley Scott

Hey everyone, another edition of the “Directors Talk” roundtable (our series where we trade our thoughts on the biggest directors working today) with PG Cooper and Ian the Cool is up!

This time up is director Ridley Scott. Between this, and my two impending Lambcast appearances discussing the Alien franchise and Blade Runner, it’s going to be quite the Ridley Scott festival these next few weeks. LOL. Thank goodness I’m a big fan.
