    I disagree with you. I hate to say it (and I really do hate to say this) but I have never enjoyed a single Kubrick film. I really liked the first half of Full Metal Jacket, and then there was the rest of the movie. I don't think he has really contributed much to the film industry as a whole, though he HAS created some very memorable characters like HAL, R. Lee Ermey's drill instructor (thought I don't think that was a "character", I think that was Ermey himself), and Alex. I don't believe he gave us much more than that though. Of course that's my opinion.

    My vote goes to Burton...
    obviously.

    Well, there are three people bears consider the greatest directors of all times, and none of them is Kubrick. I still consider him a brilliant director - even though I didn't really love any of his movies. (That's why we have different Oscar nominations for "best film" and "best director", by the way)

    Ask not what bears can do for you, but what you can do for bears. (razz)

    I can understand you not liking his films, but to say that he hasn't contributed much to the industry as a whole ... I'm sorry Sam, but that's just naive.

    Of course you're certainly entitled to your opinion, and these polls are nothing but an exercise of opinions, but speaking objectively, how can you say that you "don't think he has really contributed much to the film industry as a whole" - that's just plain wrong and not a matter of opinion.

    The AFI lists four Kubrick films in its 100 Greatest Films list, with "2001" at #15. Here's a nice overview of Kubrick's impact on cinema: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kubrick#Legacy

    My personal favorite of his though is "Barry Lyndon". It's an astonishing masterpiece.

    Stanley Kubrick is a wizard. I've never seen a film of his that's failed to astonish me.

    This is true. On the other hand, I've never seen a film of his that has touched me deeply on emotional level; or, more exactly, had something to do with my heart. That's why I like and respect him, but have never loved him.

    I have to agree. On the other hand, I don't think I've seen a Burton film I didn't like.

    So my vote obviously goes for Mr. Burton.

    I agree with you completely. However, I can say the same for Burton, and his films have never impressed me nearly as much as Kubrick's on a visual/intellectual level.

    Burton's best is probably the two Batman films.

    Big Fish, Sleepy Hollow, Edward Scissorhands - one of those three is Burton's best film. Haven't decided which yet ...

    I'm with Seymour on Burton's best.
    It'll take a lot more than words and guns,
    A whole lot more than riches and muscle.

    The hands of the many must join as one.
    And together we'll cross the river.

    Hm, weird, cause for me the the second part of the film was way better. But it's an amazing film altogether.
