I'll say PTA though.

For which movie(s) in particular?

Everything up to Boogie Nights I enjoyed. Everything After Boogie Nights I could do without. I skipped Inherent Vice, knowing instinctively that I would absolutely hate it. But I'll say Phantom Thread was probably the worst of all the experiences I had.

I changed my mind, Id rather get rid of Bujalski. Is it too late to change my pick?

Of the directors I have sufficient familiarity with, there's one that jumps out at me as having created a recent film that I actively disliked. But he's such a fat, obvious target that I'll let some other dimestore contrarian take him out.

I was going to take out Andrew Bujalski because Computer Chess is just dull and self-important without being in any way entertaining, but I guess Martin beat me to it.

So I'm going to fulfill Martin's prophecy and take out Guy Maddin.  He's interesting in short spurts, but his feature-length films are too personal and full of dull weirdness to deal with.

I tossed up between Sofia Coppola and Wes Anderson. Sofia is just meh. Wes made The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou , The Darjeeling Limited, and Fantastic Mr. Fox. It is a bullet for Mr Wes Anderson.

I guess the worst film I've seen by all of these is Midnight Special, so I'll take out Jeff Nichols.

Did not expect Hateful Eight to be the film doing Tarantino in.

Edit: Wait, I hadn't seen Pablo Trapero. As said elsewhere I despise The Clan, so he's out, and Nichols survives.

I want to hurt the world like it hurt me, so I'll dump Scorsese in a ditch with a bullet hole in his head. He deserves it I guess, he made Silence and Mean Streets.

Sorry, but Wes has made bad movies, he has to get cut.

I'll agree that Bottle Rocket is not great, or even average/mediocre. But none of the others are remotely bad.
