I agree..those names are definitely the elite in terms of all time directors but its missing one person, and Scorsese and Scott are the only 2 that would make it in the list of last 30 years...

However, the most decorated person over the last 3 decades has been Steven Spielberg and theres nobody even close in terms of quantity + quality of films. I'd put Cameron and Lucas with Spielberg as most creative minds but the other 2 havent put out as much work as he did within the same time span and also havent showed as much range in terms of different types of films.
this is true

Hitchcock would take a big s**t on Bergman and he would admit that.

The Village wasn't even bad and definitely not worse than Lady in the Water. Either way when he's on his game he's nice w/ it. Sixth Sense, Unbreakable, and Signs. To say he has two of the worst movies you're definitely exaggerating. The Happening was comical though and not because of the plants. I laughed when the kids got k!lled it surprised me. It was stupid but you could've at least said they ran from toxins in the air, not just the wind aka the stuff that blows around outside .

Now, see I'm the opposite. I actually really like "Lady In The Water".

The Village, however, is probably in my bottom five worst movies I've ever seen. I swear, no movie pisses me off more than "The Village".

actually they don't suck. Very well made movies with a lot of conscious material that the average mind just can't grasp. Shyamalan can tap into ur mind if ur a conscious enough person.
No..He drags on movies forever and then drops the surprise ending on you at the end that makes you "think". They really arent that good. The village was by far the worst movie I have watched. The happening is 2nd cause people died in some crazy ways. Other than that I would rather watch AI for the rest of my life.

What pissed you off? Only reason why ppl most hate the village is because they were mislead which I think is funny.
