who is your favourite director?

For me it's either David Lynch or Oliver Stone. Can't decide. How 'bout you?

We often went to the cinema, the screen would light up and we would tremble, but also, increasingly often, Madeleine and I were disappointed. The images had dated, they jittered, and Marilyn Monroe had gotten terribly old. We were sad, this wasn't the film we had dreamed of, this wasn't the total film that we all carried around inside us, this film that we would have wanted to make, or, more secretly, no doubt, that we would have wanted to live.

Probably Sean McNamara , who directed "Three Ninjas High Noon at Mega Mountain", one of the true classics of American cinema. Either him or Don Barnhart, director of "Saved By The Bell: Hawaiian Style".

Cameron wishes he could match the intensity of the moment you finally realize that Mr.Belding really is on the island with the kids! Truly a climactic turning point in teh series, and a great vehicle for success for the young actors and actresses.

Walter, yeah man, I took me along time to find it too!! I was shitting bricks when I did find it and me and my gal listened to it all day that day....well maybe not all day, but pretty much :D

trapped_soul, if your referring to 'if it rains for three days' then yup thats the song. And it was replaced by another song called Blue Skies, or something, after the first 5 or so episodes, that really pissed me off! The other song is alright though.

I guess it was not for some special reason but somehow u guys forgot about Charlie Chaplin! :-/

he was not only one of the first or even the very first and still is one of the greatest directors in the history of film!

NO DOUBT!

None. Susumu Hirasawa is the best composer so far, although not for movies.

Berserk, series and game.

thats not the point! ::)

his films are great !
its not just a "wheel of some vehicle" but a cornerstone of a whole industrie and revolution.
his work is independent like every other piece of art and i like it!
the reason that i mentioned charlie chaplin here is not just about appreciation but ....
i m just pretty sure that he fits in here, no!?

I don't have a problem with you liking it, but what you said orignally was that essentially, we NEEDED to like and respect his work. I personally don't. If you do, great thats fine and dandy.  8)

I had some annoying discussion a few weeks ago with a friend of mine after we watched Citizen kane again. His points were that this epos is only a milestone because of Welles make up and the form of narration that hasn't been done before (episodes from Kane's past that complete the picture).
I had a pretty hard time convincing him that this movie can still compete and is pretty much more than only an anachronistic relic of ancient times.
Same with Chaplins great dictator which is a great movie and not just some first step towards some so called sophisticated filmmaking, only worth being mentioned in history books.

Personal dislikes are very well welcome. I myself hate African Queen, dunno why just don't like it. Won't ever dare to bash it for being a bad movie tho.
