    Kubrick without a doubt. Burton has made good movies but not great movies. The Shining and Clockwork Orange win this for me.

    Come on people, we need a malenky few votes for Kubrick! I'll give some cutter!

    This is soooo not fair. These are my top two directors, and I no now that no matter what, one of them will not be in the finals.

    So, If I have to decide which one I want to see win this thing most......

    ....then its Burton.

    Was it the movie that didn't like or Kubrick's handling of it, Jean?

    This is a good question. Now that you asked it, I think the director's part was ok - not exactly Dr.Strangelove, but quite good anyway. It's the adaptation and the casting that I mostly object to. The same, I suppose, goes for Eyes Wide Shut.

    Also, I believe that cinematographically, ACO is a pure work of genius, much as I hate the movie.

    Kubrick changed a lot of what was in the book. I'm not sure if it's I knew Kubrick's version before I read Kings or if it's so much more ambiguous in Kubricks but I like the movie version better than the book. Though the book did have some things (hedge animals, that hole) the movie lacked.

    I think Shelley DuVall really ruined the shining. Nicholson was a perfect choice. The guy they got to play Grady and Lloyd were fantastic, though.

    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...
    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. ...
    I think it's undeniable that Kubrick influenced "the film industry" but the term "contributed" is more relative to differing value systems.

    Burton has made lots of good films but I don't know if he's made a great film yet. Big Fish and Scissorhands are close, though.

    My vote went to Stan the Man, but... No love for Batman, really? And Batman Returns? To me those are the best interpretations of the character, and are wonderfully done with art direction up the wazoo.

    Holding a grudge from last round? They've faced each other already: It would have been better to swap these around.

    To me, these two are both directors who've done great things, yet also each posses glaring faults. I might go with Burton. He brought cultishness into the mainstream... but I'm not sure whether that's really a good thing.

    I love Edward Scissorhands, but 2001 has been my favorite movie since I saw it sometime in the late '60. That was a (movie)experience still unsurpassed.
