    I'm actually surprised Lucas is winning considering how many Star Wars Fanboys and Fangirls hate him so much.

    Never a truer word spoken, SS. I used to be a fan of the Star Wars franchise, especially the Expanded Universe such as the comics and the New Jedi Order novels, but now Lucas has dragged it out and squeezed out so much money out of it that i'm just incredibly disillusioned by it all now. I can't even be bothered to check out a single ep of The Clone Wars computer animated series, and I loved the mini 2d eps they did a few years ago!

    (Seriously, it was worth it just to see Mace Windu kick droid arse both with and without a lightsaber in 6 minutes! Best 6 minutes in the history of anything Star Wars ever!)

    So all this surprise that Lucas is leading, but is anyone else surprised that Oliver Stone only has 2 votes! I thought for sure he'd have more than that by now.

    Absolutely, because one of those two votes is mine. Arguably one of the best American directors of the last twenty five years or so.

    Oliver Stone is very hit and miss for me, although Platoon is probably my most favorite war movie ever.

    Lucas is leading the poll, but with the exception of flagg's post, I haven't seen any of the other voters post on here ! Where you at, Lucas aficionados ??

    When I watched Stone's Natural Born Killers for the first time as a teenager, that's when I knew what separated films from movies. I was blown away.

    Actually went with Oliver Stone on this one ...

    SS - Nice call on Zodiac, btw. It's a very under-rated and textured film, IMHO, and I'm not even a Fincher fan.

    re: Lucas - I guess I can see the Star Wars fanboy response - but him having the most votes, well that's surprising given the limited amount of actual directing that George Lucas has done. While I really enjoyed THX-1138 and American Graffitti, and they were both well directed, that's about it. I mean, Star Wars is one of my favorite all time films, but it's no directing masterpiece.

    Could Lucas have handled a Dead Ringers ( one of my favorite Cronenberg films ) or a Talk Radio ? No way, I say.

    I haven't seen The Fly, but I've seen almost all of Cronenberg's bigger films. Like I said before, I loved A History of Violence & Eastern Promises. I really didn't enjoy Videodrome.

    I do feel that Fincher has a better body of work. I know Cronenberg is picky about what he shoots, but he hasn't made a film since 2007's Eastern Promises.

    As for Stone, I know a ton of people who just hate the guy. Most don't even know why.

    I'd be quite happy if it was Cronenberg and Fincher that moved on. There could still be hope. They're both only behind by one and two votes.

    Stone is one of my favorite directors ever. Unfortunately he had the misfortune of being up against Cronenberg right away.

    I went Fincher because, while I like Eastern Promises and A History of Violence, I love Fight Club and Seven and will watch them whenever they are on.

    Come on, people, we just need 3 more votes to prove there's justice in this world: 1 for Fincher, 2 for Cronenberg to go through. Lucas can't go through to the next round instead of Cronenberg! (And this is coming from someone who voted Fincher and is sticking to that vote!)

    I would like to ask WHY is Lucas tied for the lead people?? I'm one of the biggest Star Wars geeks out there and even I don't think Lucas deserves this much accolades as a director. His only saving grace is having good actors to help him get out of the mess his stilted directing puts him in. He can write, he can produce wonderful films, but he can't direct a film to the QuikieMart. If you think otherwise, forget about Star Wars (the original film I mean) and look at Star Wars II: Attack of the Clones. Look at horrible dialogue between Hayden Christensen and Natalie Portman. (Who ever thought Portman could deliver such stilted dialogue?) Lucas is pretty good with the action part of his films, but he's spectacularly horrible with the softer side. The greatest part of the entire Star Wars franchise (The Empire Strikes Back) wasn't directed by Lucas. It was directed by Irvin Kershner.
