Director Death Match: Jim Sheridan vs. Curtis Hanson
« 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...
