Hello there,

We are all a bit more then just movie fans, we are discussing about a director. Besides Nolan, there are quite some directors I like, but I guess that also applies on you guys!
So, who are your favorite directors?

Here's my top 3:
1. M. Night Shyamalan - His latest movie was a bit dissapointing, but his first 4 (The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable, Signs, The Village) where awesome! He was the first one I ever called 'My favorite director' and hasn't left that spot!
2. Christopher Nolan - We all know why.
3. David Fincher - Was on the second spot before Nolan. His movie 'Fight Club' is still my number one movie ever. Second best: Se7en. (though that one doesn't make it into my top 5 of best movies).

There are some more directors I like, but I can't really place them into order. They are deffinately not in my top 3.
Paul Greengrass, Gore Verbrinski, Micheal Bay and J.J. Abrams.

I don't like M. Night. Sixth Sense was his only good movie.

Hmmmmmm.......Ok

1. Orson Welles/Tim Burton
2. Stanley Kubrick
3. David Lynch
4. Billy Wilder
5. Sir David Lean

I didn't Put Nolan on the list as he's still young and has only made two classics in my view so far (Batman Begins and Memento). But I'm sure he will be my fav one day like Memento is my fav film.

I think you're terminology is a bit incorrect. I don't think one person can entirely determine whether a film is a "classic" or not, even if it is their view, that is usually done through majority, consensus or the passage of time. I think the word/phrase that would be more adequate would be "masterpieces" or "great films".
