    The Coen Brothers are good, but Quentin Tarantino has style. As Sai King would say, his movies are boss. Not to mention he's the god of realistic, believable dialogue both in his script and from his actors (which is a compliment I can't give to many directors/writers these days). And come on, Tarantino's soundtracks? Forget about it!

    Tarantino it is.

    After much consideration ... Tarantino.

    Although Tarantino is a little too in love with his own script writing prowess at times, I can't deny that his films all harbor a certain charm that just demand re-watches.

    The Coen brothers lost out by only the slimmest of margins though, as their films are (for the most part) superbly, meticulously crafted.

    Coens. i just feel that Quentin is placed in a category he doesn't deserve to be in. I feel like the Coens (and Paul Thomas Anderson, who just lost to QT) make movies about people and life and often pack an emotional wallop, such as with Fargo or magnolia, whereas QT makes clever movies about other movies. He's very clever, but the Coens are almost as clever and appeal to me on a much more human level. As for Paul Thomas Anderson, i worship him as a deity.

    But that isn't discussing their abilities as directors, is it? You're discussing the overall impact of the films.

    I think it has everything to do with the director's approach to cinema as a whole, and it is an essential part of weather or not we love a director and consider him great.

    You can't ignore The Dude! I voted Coen's. I love Tarantino, but I don't think he's consistently good. That sounds almost contradictory to what I've been saying about Spielberg in the other thread - which is pretty much that I'd give him my vote for Jaws alone, so in some respects I could give Tarantino the vote for Pulp Fiction alone, but with Spielberg, even if you don't like the film for the story I think the level of directing remains the same. With Tarantino I sometimes feel like, it's a big fight scene with dialogue either side to pad it out.

    Yes, it does. That's why I consistently vote against him.
