    Shocked by do many choosing Spielberg over Scorsese despite the former having so many missteps and lower lows than the latter.

    Yeah, but Spielberg’s highs are just so undeniably high, and the fact that he’s made some of cinema’s biggest films on both a critical and commercial scale really boosts him up.

    And he hasn’t had that many missteps. Even his weaker efforts have their great moments.

    “So many missteps” is an overstatement. Even Scorsese had one or two. Spielberg might have slightly more because he has made several more films than Scorsese.

    Disagree, even minor things like Kundun and The Color of Money are way better than Spielberg’s middling efforts.

    Hell, even his worst film (Boxcar Bertha) is still a good exploitation flick.

    Spielberg instead had just some undeniably bad films.

    Spielberg. Spielberg. Spielberg.

    If the question is filmography? Come on, don’t be stupid guys. Everyone throwing out the names of hitchcock, wilder, kubrick and so on… you guys are golden age thinkers. Grow up and don’t be pretentious.

    Spielberg started the blockbuster, and made more blockbusters – and MORE blockbusters. But where it really comes to? His productivity. His filmography is not only what he directed but ALSO what he produced! Not only is it the movies produced but the FILMMAKERS he launches along the process. Almost every year in the 90s to 00s he was doing something to further advance cinema.

    Today I learned that liking cinema is pretentious.

    Kubrick isn’t even commonly thought of as a ‘golden age’ filmmaker, whatever that means. And what does productivity have to do with greatness? It’s not even the topic under discussion, and I’d say you actually do Spielberg a disservice by mostly reducing his legacy to that one trait.

    By the comments I’d say Tarkovski is underrated here, so I voted for him. But then i checked Fellini got 0 votes while Nolan had four…

    Anyways, Scorsese and Bergman are fine names to win this poll

    chromatica out on may 29th yeah

    Make sense, coming from someone who ranks Spielberg 8th.

    They’re all phenomenal. I also wouldn’t put Nolan on this list over other directors. I think his filmography is a bit too recent to properly assess it’s overall contribution to cinema. He belongs on another list with more recent notable directors like Fincher, Wes Anderson, Bong Joon-Ho, Del Toro, Tarantino, etc.

    This is tough because all of these artists have a pretty consistent track record (with a couple of stumbles). I’m not sure that I can really rank them. Bergman maybe takes the cake for being probably the most consistent and influential. Although Kubrick is never really made a bad movie.

    Many wouldn’t rank Spielberg in their top 10, or even 20. There are so many canonised directors not included in this poll: Ozu, Dreyer, Renoir, Cocteau, Ophüls, Wilder, de Sica, Rossellini, Antonioni, Herzog, Fassbinder, Coppola, the list goes on.

    I think Spielberg is one of the great directors. Sure his work is more mainstream, but the man was able to pull off Schindler’s List, The Color Purple, Jaws, Saving Private Ryan,Jurassic Park, Indiana Jones,ET, and many others.

    He makes good, enjoyable movies and his filmography has impressive range. While the likes of Bergman, Kurosawa, Kubrick, etc are great, there is room for a more mainstream artist on the list. Spielberg made popular movies of quality.
