It's Filmspot season!

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

There were brief discussions about actors, performances and characters. I left shortly after the countdown was over so I'm not sure if anything concrete came out of the talks.

Yeah I think we decided to shelve those because
It's Filmspot season!

Absolutely. Enough about 'all time' lists. It's time to make a little bit of room for 2008. I wasn't a very active message board member at this time last year so I have to say that I'm kind of excited for the filmspots.

-James Bond: A little. But I won't consider myself to be in trouble until I start weeping blood.

Woohoo! You totally should be. I hear they're pretty awesome.

Mesa list,

1) Hayao Miyazaki
2) Alfred Hitchcock
3) Stanley Kubrick
4) Akira Kurosawa
5) Brad Bird
6) Guillermo del Toro
7) John Ford
8) Billy Wilder
9) Ridley Scott
10) David Fincher
11) Orson Welles
12) John Lasseter
13) Clint Eastwood
14) David Cronenberg
15) George Romero
16) Elia Kazan
17) Coen Brothers
18) Alfonso Cuaron
19) Steven Spielberg
20) Danny Boyle

I mentioned that I was looking into this about a month ago, and I have been mulling this over a lot lately. My top 20 feels like it will significantly change, so I figured I'd revisit this and see just how much it has changed,

1) Hayao Miyazaki
2) Werner Herzog
3) Billy Wilder
4) Alfred Hitchcock
5) Gus Van Sant
6) Akira Kurosawa
7) David Cronenberg
8) Stanley Kubrick
9) Sergio Leone
10) Andrew Stanton
11) Coen Brothers
12) Marc Forster
13) John Lasseter
14) Clint Eastwood
15) John Ford
16) Paul Thomas Anderson
17) Brad Bird
18) Ingmar Bergman
19) Isao Takahata
20) Guillermo del Toro

So it ends up there were some significant changes, and I expect there to be more as I discover other great directors. But, it will be a while before I visit this topic again. I just wanted to see how my views have changed over a short amount of time, so, uh, yeah.

Mymymy. GVS goes from off the list to #5, passing Kubrick. Quite the changes.

Welles will be back on there once you get around to F for Fake.

That's what happens when all I had previously seen was Elephant, and now I have seen Paranoid Park, Gerry, Drugstore Cowboy, Milk and Good Will Hunting. But, you're forgetting about Herzog, who also wasn't on the original list and jumped all the way to #2.

Welles will be back on there once you get around to F for Fake.

I have a feeling Welles will be back on there once I get around to seeing Othello, The Trial, Touch Of Evil, The Lady From Shanghai and yes, F For Fake.
