    I know there is thread for actors or directors that ruin a movie for you but which one's do you really like?

    I've got a few directors in mind. I do have a few actor/actresses in mind.

    Tim Burton, his visuals are usually eccentric and fun, except for Planet of the Apes.

    I don't have a certain actor, really.

    I've never watched a movie just because it has an actor I like in it. That would be for stage, stage is the actor's medium. Film is the director's medium. I'll be drawn hypnotically to anything by Kubrick, Singer, Fincher, Alex Proyas, Hideo Nakata, Ryuhei Kitamura, Corey Yuen, Ridley Scott...I would add Burton but he's made the same movie twenty times now, he needs to make more stuff like Ed Wood.

    Actors,...eh, I'll watch any actor in anything if the movie is good. I don't discriminate. Heck, I don't even know if I have a favorite actor. If I have one that's close to being my favorite, it'd probably be Christian Bale. I'd probably see him in anything.

    As for directors, I'll probably watch anything by Spielberg, Peter Jackson, Scorcese, Tim Burton, Bryan Singer, and Clint Eastwood.

    I'm fan of Tarantino, Robert Rodriguez, Edgar Wright (Shaun of the dead and Hot Fuzz were genuis), Kevin Smith,

    Actors would have to be Edward Norton and Bruce Willis.
    Actresses, Rosario Dawson, She's gorgeous and she can actually act.

    I totally agree about Shaun and Fuzz, tyler. :up:

    As for directors, I'm probably forgetting several but off the top of my head I'd say these would make me at least curious about the movie: Lawrence Kasdan, Michael Mann, Spielberg, John Hughes, Robert Zemeckis, Chris Columbus, M.Night Shymalan.

    Actors - There are certain people who are just easy to watch and for the most part, choose decent scripts. I don't automatically go to their films, but I'm usually more apt to. Tom Hanks, Will Smith, Denzel Washington, Mel Gibson, Brad Pitt :O

    When I think about it, some of my favorite actors are in some of the worst movies, and some of my favorite movies have actors that are just okay for me. Weird. :dry:

    M. Night is okay I actually most of films considering the crap he gets for them, Unbreakable and the sixth sense are great, I'm on the fence about the Village, the ending was crap.

    As of right now, the Judd Apatow crew, Kevin Smith, Quentin Tarantino, and Tim Burton. If they're attached to a project, I'm there.

    I used to see all of the Will Ferrell movies, but then that turned sour once I saw "Blades of Glory". Same with Keira Knightley and "The Jacket".

    Robert Rodriguez would be on my top list, but I refuse to watch any of the "Spy Kids" movies or "Sharkboy and Lavagirl".

    I'll check out any and all movies directed by Steven Spielberg, Peter Jackson(post Heavenly Creatures), Tim Burton, Bryan Singer, QT, Robert Zemeckis, and George Lucas.

    Spy Kids 2 and 3 as well as Sharkboy and Lavagirl was all complete trash. But, if you don't mind family movies, I would definitely advise the first Spy Kids if you have not seen it. Cool story, nice special effects, and a really good cast. Alan Cumming was simply genius. A lot of people hear about the sequels and the Sharkboy movie and decide against seeing the first, but I really enjoyed it. Rob Rod came up with a cool idea and made something very nice out of it(yes, my second favorite Rodriguez movie :D), the sequels were just poorly done and simply made for the money.

    Over 100 reviews, just take a look.
