bit of a spin off of this quiz: http://www.sporcle.com/games/jws/topmovies. sorry for the two repeats, but i loved scorsese and the coen brothers too much to leave off. enjoy.

You should include Tarantino. Apart from that great quiz.
Oct 9th, 2010 at 12:18 GMT
Absolutely amazing that 2001 is not there for Kubrick - I kept wondering if I was misspelling "odyssey".
Oct 9th, 2010 at 13:37 GMT
Yeah this is wrong. Kubrick goes: dr strangelove, the shining, a clockwork orange, paths of glory, 2001. full metal jacket is in 6th place. yeah wheres tarantino? chris nolan? robert zemeckis? john hughes? steven spielberg?
Oct 9th, 2010 at 16:32 GMT
these are just some of my favorite directors, ones i really admire and set apart, doesn't mean i think anyone not included sucks, these are just my all-time favorites. and i took the ranks from when i went to their filmography and ordered it by rating (not including shorts, or documentaries, just full-length, dramatic feature films)
Oct 9th, 2010 at 17:38 GMT
and frankly, hughes, zemeckis, and nolan aren't even in the same league as hawks, lang, welles, truffaut, nick ray, or any other one of these guys. in my opinion.
Oct 9th, 2010 at 22:10 GMT
Really, Spielberg should be here.
Oct 10th, 2010 at 01:37 GMT
as great as spielberg is, he really isn't even in the 20 greatest directors of all time...and these are just my favorites, not saying they're "the greatest forever and only"...
Oct 10th, 2010 at 01:43 GMT
Regardless of where you think Spielberg ranks, I think he would make a better addition to this quiz than (say) Leone because he's made so many movies that it would be harder to guess than Leone, who has made 6 movies well-known in America, 5 of which are on the quiz.
Oct 10th, 2010 at 01:45 GMT
Oh, and I say that having enjoyed this very much. Constructive criticism and all that
Oct 10th, 2010 at 01:51 GMT
fair enough, and glad you enjoyed it!
Oct 25th, 2010 at 20:45 GMT
I'm sorry but I can't respect this quiz if 2001: A Space Odyssey is not on here. Besides that it is a great idea and I would like it if it was a larger quiz than just limited to these few.
