    I would have never guessed to see Shyamalan and Spielberg on the same place.

    ......I’m so confused on what the top 5 of this list is.

    Definitely a lot of big nods here. Surprised they only got one vote. They weren't enough to make my list. Spielberg is a classic and he makes blockbusters but I particularly always saw him as a tad (just a tad) overrated. M. Night Shyamalan had the most potential to crack my top five and I do enjoy his stuff, however I do think his movies are too similar in that they're all thrillers with twist endings.

    I obviously don't want to give anything away... but I would say that the top 5 has maaaaaybe one director on it, who could maaaaybe considered to be a surprise up there.

    I think it might be a case of people rather putting someone else instead of Spielberg on their list, because they think he'll get enough love anyways.
    Spielberg is also a weird case anyways. At least in my head. I do love quite a lot of his movies, but he never really came to my mind when I first thought about my fave five.

    I think he’d make a lot of top tens, but given the list so far, it’s not a surprise. This seems to be an intensely personal Fave Five, at least to this point.

    Re: WC's Fave Five Directors~!

    Spielberg is fine but he's not the sort of a director who I'd go out of my way to see what they do or who I've seen a movie and clamored to see more of.

    I actually started watching Edgar Wright movies because of Silk. I cant say Im as infatuated with him as much as most Wright fans seem to be but his movies are always fun/interesting to watch so while I dont love him, Im generally interested in seeing what he's going to do next, and his movies are pretty re-watchable.

    Not sure I've seen anything from Mahmet/Mohmer.

    Shyamalan is such a meme that I've not cared to go out of my way to watch his movies and the ones I've watched are inoffensive but unexceptional.

    Aside from Ride the Waves which felt way too standard for a movie of his, Yuasa's one of my faves for how his movies/shows generally do a lot with minimal resources, feel pretty experimental, absurd, and are all visually interesting which is more or less what I look for in a movie, especially when it comes to animation.

    Michael Mann directed Heat AKA GREAT ASS so that’s enough to be my number 1

    Interested to see if Creeping Death's #1 is my #2 and if we've taken them to the tippy top.

    My brain took a shit and I forgot Michael Mann.

    Thief, Manhunter, Mohicans, GREAT ASS, Insider, Collateral and Miami Vice are so dope. Probably would've been number 5 if I'd remembered.

    In hindsight, I think I'd have put M. Night Shyamalan over Wes Craven on my list as I think he's the better horror movie director and also a little more versatile. But it is what it is.

    The only horror he creates is terrible movies. He has had 3 or 4 decent films.

    Craven created series of horror franchises.
