Libero21 - I'll start us off

1. Martin Scorsese- best gangster movies of all time and consistently makes classics and is very original. ( Departed, Goodfellas)
2. Quentin Tarnitino- makes some of the coolest movies ever made and also an amazing writer. ( Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown)
3. Wes Anderson- one of the most creative directors in modern time, his work is intricate and makes amazing movies. (Rushmore, Grand Budapest Hotel)
4. Cohen Bros.- very diverse filmography with unlimited creative ideas. With Classics ranging from the 80s till today they deserve more praise then they are given. (Fargo, No Country For Old Men)

God damn it.  2 Minutes late.

I liked Armageddon and the Bad Boys Series. He's a poor man's James Cameron imo with an unlimited budget for special effects Phone Post 3.0

grizz632 - Most of mine have been mentioned except for John Carpenter and Robert Rodriguez Phone Post 3.0
Robert Rodriguez is great. Desperado, Sin City, From Dusk till Dawn, and Once upon a time in Mexico. Great director, he usually writes, edits, and scores his own movies which is very impressive Phone Post 3.0

And to be honest John Carpenter is amazing. Sorry for not including him. Escape from LA and Backdraft were some of my favorite movies growing up. Phone Post 3.0

Spike Jonze is so underrated. Being John Malkovich, Her, Where the wild things are, and he's actually helps write all of the Jackass movies including Bad Grandpa (which was amazing). Phone Post 3.0
