What's Your Favorite Director Of All Time?

For right now, my favorite director has to be: Tim Burton

I love Tim Burton's films, Batman, Batman Forever, Sleepy Hollow, Sweeny Todd, Charlie And The Chocolate Factory, and many more. I love that spooky look he gives all his movies. You know, where everyone and everything's kind of dark and mysterious, like the way he potrayed Gotham City in the first two Batman films with Michael Keaton. Man I love this guys movies!

So, who's your favorite director?

I went to a Tim Burton marathon in Toronto where they showed all the movies he'd directed, which included some movies I wasn't aware of.... like 'Big Fish' and 'Planet of the Apes' remake.... But it was really cool watching 'Pee Wee's Big Adventure' and 'Beetle Juice' on the big screen


I like Stanley Kubrik, for starters.

Of note: Sean Penn blew my mind w/ 'Into the Wild', I'd recommend that movie just for the visual alone.... but it IS a great book and great story as well.

Quentin, not even a question

Not even a close second for me

Chris Nolan is off in the distance and hes making a run for it but hes still got some ways to go yet.

QT is a once-every-200-years type guy though.

I agree with that Waves. QT is a great director and up there on my list as well...Tim Burton tops it though.

Some of my fav movies that QT has directed have got to be

Pulp Fiction
From Dusk Till Dawn
Grindhouse double feature

Those movies rock! Any suggestions for some other rocking QT movies Waves that maybe I haven't seen?

Inglourious Basterds spoiler below.
It's well known that all of Tarantino's films take place in the same universe - this is established by the fact that Mr. Blonde and Vince Vega are brothers, everybody smokes Red Apple cigarettes, Mr. White worked with Alabama from True Romance, etc.
As it turns out, Donny Donowitz, 'The Bear Jew', is the father of movie producer Lee Donowitz from True Romance - which means that, in Tarantino's universe, everybody grew up learning about how a bunch of commando Jews machine gunned Hitler to death in a burning movie theater, as opposed to quietly killing himself in a bunker.
Because World War 2 ended in a movie theater, everybody lends greater significance to pop culture, hence why seemingly everybody has Abed-level knowledge of movies and TV. Likewise, because America won World War 2 in one concentrated act of hyperviolent slaughter, Americans as a whole are more desensitized to that sort of thing. Hence why Butch is unfazed by killing two people, Mr. White and Mr. Pink take a pragmatic approach to killing in their line of work, Esmerelda the cab driver is obsessed with death, etc.
You can extrapolate this further when you realize that Tarantino's movies are technically two universes - he's gone on record as saying that Kill Bill and From Dusk 'Til Dawn take place in a 'movie movie universe'; that is, they're movies that characters from the Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, True Romance, and Death Proof universe would go to see in theaters. (Kill Bill, after all, is basically Fox Force Five, right on down to Mia Wallace playing the title role.)
What immediately springs to mind about Kill Bill and From Dusk 'Til Dawn? That they're crazy violent, even by Tarantino standards. These are the movies produced in a world where America's crowning victory was locking a bunch of people in a movie theater and blowing it to bits - and keep in mind, Lee Donowitz, son of one of the people on the suicide mission to kill Hitler, is a very successful movie producer.
Basically, it turns every Tarantino movie into alternate reality sci fi. I love it so hard.
EDIT: Oh hai upvotes. Glad everybody liked this as much as I did! Let me address some things:
1) I don't think the same actors necessarily correlate to the same characters - the bit about Mia Wallace in Kill Bill seemed like just an interesting detail or maybe an exception rather than the rule. Mr. White and The Wolf are two different people. That said, I remember Tarantino mentioning that Sheriff McGraw and The Wolf are the only characters that can jump between the regular movie and the movie movie universe. [1] Proof.
2) I'm not implying that nuking scores of innocent people is less violent than anything else - I just think it would have a different effect on the American psyche. Growing up knowing our home country vaporized two whole cities has influenced our culture in its own ways; I feel like the movie theater plot would do the same. Also, since this is primarily a fan theory, I don't think the psychology of it needs to be 100% irrefutable and airtight.
3) Yes, I initially saw this on Cracked and then extrapolated on it. Since it was a fan theory and it blew my mind, I posted it here.

I like Martin Scorcese's movies. He also does some of the best soundtracks. Usually The Rolling Stones, Cream, Blind Faith. De Niro stars in a lot of them as well. How can you go wrong with that line-up?

Yeah son, I figured it was about time for me to voice my opinion on the subject. Tarantino is a close 2nd, as Pulp Fiction is 1 of my top 5 favorite flicks. He definitely doesn't shy away from the violence at all, does he?
1 of the funniest scenes in Pulp is when Samuel L. Jackson (I can't recall his name in the movie??) was driving, Vincent (Travolta) was in the passenger seat & some dude they knew was in the backseat. Vincent turns around to talk to the backseat dude & ends up blowing the dude's brains all over the place. Samuel is fuckin flippin' out, asking "Why did you shoot that fucker?" & Travolta goes, "Hey dude, take it easy!! It was an accident...I didn't mean to kill the guy!!"
Great movie!!

Great movie!!
Normally I would cut you down dad, but I've got nothing bad to say about this post.

This is going to be painful for me to say, but "your right dad", WOW that hurt. Hilarious scene though.

What about that other scene where Vincent (Travolta) and *Jules*(Samuel) were cleanig up the the car after Vincent blew that guy's brains all over the backseat. Jules was cleaning up the backseat and Vincent was cleaning up the frontseat. finally Jules turns to Vincent and says "What the fuck am I doing in the backseat, you're the motherfucker who should be on brain detail. We're fuckin switchin, I'm washing the windows and you're picking up this guy's skull.

Ha Ha Ha! Now, that scene was funny too. Pulp Fiction...a classic.
