    Overall this list is passable.  Considered voting Speilberg, as RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK is a major fav and I aso really like EMPIRE OF THE SUN and the other Indiana Jones films.  But his most noted films, ET & THE COLOR PURPLE are far from being as great to me as they are to others.  

    Rob Reiner almost gets my vote bc I do love THE PRINCESS BRIDE and STAND BY ME.  John Hughes’ FERRIS BULLER’S DAY OFF is among my all time favs along with Raiders & Princess mentioned already.

    I voted David Lynch mainly for his bold efforts.  I don’t always get his work but I appreciate his out of the box approach.  Woody Allen is my fav filmaker of the decade with Scorsese right behind him.
