What kind of sickos are rating Leone so low!

Really like the screenshots.

Agreed chardy999

I am a little surprised that Alejandro Jodorowsky was not even more divisive.

My guess is some people find his films too drawn out. (And for the record, Bondo is not the lowest Rating for Leone.)

We should revisit this once you see who ranks above him. There are a few I don't agree with, but only one real head-scratcher that sticks way out as a mistake. (Look for it at #17)

I was a bit surprised Chaplin didn't show up at all in the top 100, now I see why I guess. Surprising, wonder who that is and what they dislike so much about him ?

This was a strange group for me too. I don't like Fellini, but I Rated him a 4. The other 3 are above a 7. I tried to figure out why these filmmakers have detractors. My initial thought with Zinnemann was A Man For All Seasons, but then I remembered High Noon, which Western purists tend to dump on.

When I saw the 10 for Chaplin, I just assumed it was Oldkid. I rated him 7.4 myself, mainly because I've seen too much of him and I think he has a number of 2nd tier works - King of New York - that get more attention than they deserve. He has a number of gems, but is a director like Fellini where people see his name and automatically reward it with Greatness.

My initial thought on low Ratings for Leo McCarey was his connection to The Marx Bros. (though he only did one of them). I know some people don't like Make Way For Tomorrow, but it should be balanced by those who love it. Going My Way, considered one of the least deserving Best Picture winners, became my best theory.

FYI, the person who Rated Chaplin 2 also rated McCarey a 2.

I don't like Chaplin, but I don't think I gave him a 2. I might be the 4?
