15 Directors Meme

I got tagged by film connoisseur Peter Eramo Jr. over at Magic Lantern Film to list 15 directors that have shaped the way I look at motion pictures. These are auteurs whose work I admire, even if I don’t necessarily go and see every single one of their films. Some of their work have defined my taste in movies and some are those that I could watch over and over again. The movie(s) next to their name is one of their films that stick with me the most, so here they are in alphabetical order:

  1. James Cameron (Terminator, The Abyss)
  2. George Cukor (My Fair Lady)
  3. Richard Donner (Superman: The Movie)
  4. Nora Ephron (Sleepless in Seattle, You’ve Got Mail)
  5. Curtis Hanson (L.A. Confidential)
  6. Peter Jackson (The Lord of the Rings trilogy)
  7. Ang Lee (Sense & Sensibility)
  8. Michael Mann (Heat, The Insider)
  9. Christopher Nolan (Batman Begins, Inception)
  10. Martin Scorsese (Age of Innocence)
  11. Ridley Scott (Gladiator)
  12. Zack Snyder (300)
  13. Steven Spielberg (Indiana Jones & The Last Crusade, Schindler’s List)
  14. Robert Wise (The Sound of Music)
  15. William Wyler (Roman Holiday, Ben-Hur)

Well, to keep the ball rolling, I’d like to tag five bloggers whose blogs I visit often, who haven’t taken part in this yet (as of tonight anyway). And as I haven’t done my Everybody’s Chattin‘ post this week, I might as well kill two birds with one stone 😀

Ok folks, don’t drop the ball, ok? And readers, feel free to share your own list in the comments section below.
