lol at the Game being brilliant but Zodiac being disappointing. Zodiac was the best film so far in 2007.

The above list is my personal breakdown(it is not a statement of fact) and lol at people who think Nolan is a good director but Night isn't.
...it doesnt have to do with overall careers...cuz then obviously Steven S, Cameron, Ridley, Coppola(who is technically still working) would be at the top.

I thought Zodiac was good, but definitely not great. The movie was too long and could have been pared down without losing any crucial substance. There was good suspense, but far less than many other good serial killer movies I've seen over the years. I also think Jake Gylenhall is very overrated as an actor.

Ridley Scott, Paul Greengrass, and Christopher Nolan are all British, not American. Ang Lee is arguable, since even though he is Taiwanese he makes quintessential American films (The Ice Storm and Brokeback are about as good as it gets in analyzing strictly American cultural sensibilities).

Agreed. I love Christian Bale and I like Russell Crowe in Westerns (cf. The Quick and the Dead), but I fell asleep halfway through that 3:10 to Yuma trailer.

EDIT: Just realized that the director is the awful James Mangold, who hasn't made anything resembling a watchable film in 6 tries (well I guess Walk the Line was barely watchable but it wasn't very good). Talk about a guy with no style at all... ugh.

Daniel Day Lewis + Paul Dano + P.T. Anderson = Gold. Can't wait for this.

No; I'm actually not a fan of Classic Westerns... I only like the genre when it's revisionist.
