    What is the best film studio when it comes to delivering good movies?

    20th Century Fox? Why?
    Columbia Pictures? Why?
    New Line Cinema? Why?
    Dimension Films? Why?
    Walt Disney Pictures? Why?
    Paramount/DreamWorks Pictures? Why?
    Warner Brothers Pictures? Why?
    Universal Pictures? Why?
    Other? Why?

    I personally like 20th Century Fox because it delivers great family films.

    It depends on the era and genre.

    Example: Universal made the best monster movies back in the `30s and `40s.

    So...picking the best movie studio is easier said then done. I mean...back in the `70s FOX made the best movies but now, thanks to Rothman, they suck.

    WB = `30s and `40s gangster movies, Looney Tunes, and big franchises.

    20th Century Fox has been hit and miss since SM2.

    Definitely not Fox and Dimension, since they're infamous for tampering too much with their movies.

    I chose Paramount.

    Paramount hasn't been good for a while. At the moment the best studios are DreamWorks, Warner Bros (despite what comic geeks tell you), and Sony.

    And...overall...the best studios have been WB, FOX, Universal, Paramount, and Disney.

    Honorable Mentions to MGM/UA.

    Surprise that no one picked Walt Disney Pictures since they have blockbuster hits every year.

    Yes, but they're not really a diverse studio. Their films are generally good, but it's all in the same genre.

    These days...Disney really isn't that great. PIXAR is the one that makes great movies.

    You do know that Touchstone and Miramax are part of Disney, right? And isn't No Country For Old Men a Miramax movie?

    I guess in that case Disney does suck.

    They don't suck. They just stick to what they're good at, like most studios do.

    This is a REALLY interesting thread and I have to say I completely agree with the above comments.

    If we are talking about decades past, I might have gone with Universal or Fox. They were both great in the 70's and 80's when they were willing to give film makers like Speilberg and Lucas a chance to make movies as they saw fit.

    I guess in the long run, I might have to say Fox. They have some of my favorite franchises under their belt like Star Wars and Alien and they took some risk on some of my favorite films like Fight Club..but now, they just shred and cookie cut everything in the name of the allmighty dollar. It's kind of like what I sense happening to Miramax. When Miramax was a fledgling studio in the 90's, it took some risk with Tarrantino and built itself on those successes, but it doesn't feel like the same studio anymore. It's like when a studio finally becomes successful, it looses it's edge and becomes too corporate. I know it comes down to money, but film is an art meduim, so there is always conflict there. Now an up and coming, creative film maker has to go to something like Lions Gate to find any degree of freedom.

    Lions Gate is a studio where the movies are either really, really good or really, really awful.

    Agreed...and that is a sign of a studio that actually takes risk.

    No, that's the sign of a studio that'll produce anything if they think they can make a buck off of it.
