    Have to go with Boyle on this one.

    Boy, but I seem to be a fan of the underdogs....I agree, Jean. Scorsese seems to have the advantage here.

    Boyle.

    Seriously tough one, especially considering how much I've loved Scorsese's work...but I've loved Boyle's work even more.

    Oh man, these polls are already getting too hard for me
    Boyle is one of my personal favorite directors. I love his films. But Scorsese! I feel he's a much better director.

    I'll be back in a little bit...

    vote your personal favorite, then. I think it's fairer than trying to assess someone's greatness; what are the criteria, anyway, unless they are in your heart?

    Yeah, comparing directors can be hard. I still think the weirdest comparison we've had so far was Del Toro and Howard....you can't get any more opposite than that.

    I'm sure he's going to lose, as well, but I have to go with Boyle. Sunshine and 28 Days Later are two of the finest films I've seen.

    I desperately want to see Sunshine again. The last 20 minutes through me for a loop so I have to check it out again. In top five space movies of the decade, along with Moon and Pandorum imo.

    28 Days Later, Trainspotting and Millions are some of my favorite films. Voted for Boyle.

    You're right. I've been thinking about it, and I think I'm going to go with Boyle. But I do think Scorsese is amazing

    I voted Boyle too. Trainspotting was ground breaking, I was blown away by it when it first came out. Much like Pulp Fiction, I think you need to remember the impact these films had on you when you first saw them.

    I agree that Trainspotting was groundbreaking... and I love it.

    But ... it wasn't more groundbreaking than, say, Taxi Driver. Or Raging Bull.
    The Man In Black Fled Across The Desert...

    ...And The Gunslinger Followed.
