Been a busy day but Jacques Audiard has been crossed off.


I also was thinking Baby Driver would doom Wright. I can go through the remaining directors and name a film that should put them in jeopardy, but nothing seems as popular a strike against as this.

I really enjoyed it.  In my mind, Wright hasn't made a bad movie.  He hasn't made a not-good movie.

I can think of a few in Coppola's filmography. I'm really surprised she's still standing actually, given the reputation Somewhere and The Bling Ring get.

Baby Driver is okay, not bad. Certainly Coppola should get crossed off years earlier than Wright.

Baby Driver is really good, it's strange the turn that public sentiment took on it a month or so after release. At this point the only bad film I've seen from Wright is Shaun of the Dead...but also that's so bad that I can see it knocking him off. FLY just won't be the one to make that cut.

I'll go with Coppola, for these two specifically, but not exclusively.  I'm usually cold to her films, though I did enjoy The Beguiled.

Can't be sure from the phrasing. Are you saying you're taking Coppola out?
