Title: Director Death Match: Jim Sheridan vs. Curtis Hanson
Post by: 1SO on September 05, 2008, 12:28:47 AM
Most will agree that 8 Mile beats Get Rich or Die Tryin', but what about In America vs. In Her Shoes? Wonder Boys vs. My Left FootThe Boxer vs. Lucky You?

Both directors have their ups and downs.  In a blind taste test, who do you trust more?

I really like LA Confidential and enjoyed Wonder Boys. I haven't seen any of Hanson's other work but I'd go with those two over In America (which I also like quite a bit).

I don't know, maybe because of L.A Confidential I might go with Hanson but I'm still undecided

as much as I love Losin' It, Sheridan's never done anything that stinks as badly as Lucky You.

I wonder if this match will end in death...

I shot in Jim Sheridan's house once.  Well, his third house on the Irish coast.

Its tough cause I love LA Confidential so much as well I love Wonder Boys, but everything else I can live without.  But My Left Foot and In the Name of the Father are amazing as well.  I'll say Hanson.
