Digital Cinematography

Good: Breathes new life into the way movies can look (ie. Slumdog Millionaire)

Bad: If not used properly can look like garbage (ie. 2012, Public Enemies)

I feel remarkably unqualified to critique these type of directors beyond whether I like or dislike this or that movie.
Those are my principles, and if you don't like them... well, I have others.

Good start, 1SO, since nothing about Spielberg is good.

Not even two executive producer credits on Band of Brothers, choosing to work with Kaminski, or technical skill in editing?  Nothing?  I mean I'm not a big fan of the guy, but...

The one-two punch of crap that is E.T. and Close Encounters of the Third Kind is enough to negate anything that man has ever done or will ever do.

Don't bait him, and FLY, quit taking bait at every opportunity.

iKeith! raises a good point, those shows are all very good. They are the exception though, not the rule.

That's why you only need ONE good thing.

Sequels

Good: When the filmmakers have a plan for a fresh movie, like Toy Story 2

Bad: When they're trying to recapture the magic of the original, like Ghostbusters 2

1SO, you missed:

The Quay Brothers

I'll do this one, and I'll just repeat 1SO's subject (Dakota Fanning).

Good: Amazing short films; some of the best films ever made, period

Bad: Their feature-lengths aren't as good as their shorts.


Subject:
