    Tim Burton's early work (for example Pee Wee) glistens with originality, wit, and an overall brilliance very few directors can pull off with such off-beat subject matter. Unfortunately for the world of film, Stanley Kubrick usually stands near to the top. His cinematography and his ability to get the actors to do exactly what he imagines is extraordinary; however, his script decisions for adaptations (such as A Clockwork Orange and The Shining) are very poor and lower the overall enchantment of the films.

    Since the ability to direct can only go so far as the ability to write a good script, I have to give it to Burton.
    Finished The Dark Tower at 6:03AM on December 21, 2009.

    The man in black fled across the desert,
    and the gunslinger followed.

    May I suggest that the non-director member with the highest postcount gets the deciding vote. It seems fair to me.

    Actually, the only true way to make this fair is to let the non-director with the ... 6th highest post count decide.

    Granted.

    Look, the trouble with The Shining was that Kubrick was so determined to blow off the afterlife. King was like, "Is there an afterlife, for real? I just don't know." But Kubrick, he knew everything. I mean, this is a guy whose biggest hero was Napoleon. Burton's problem, on the other hand, is that he's just gotten too comfortable. He's not really as fiery at heart as Kubrick was... but he certainly did create some great stuff in his younger days.

    And so... Wow, this is awkward. Bad karma, feev. Gnarly.
