Who’s Your Favorite Movie Director?

What is it that makes us love a movie? There are so many answers to that simple question. One of the staples of a film, however, is the movie’s director. There are thousands of directors around the world but there are those certain directors whose work you recognize immediately. I love movie directors. Their distinct take on filmmaking is fascinating and can help elevate a film from good to great.

And that’s why I wanted to make this the topic of this week’s Who’s Your Favorite? So, who’s your favorite movie director?

For me, my favorite director of all time is undoubtedly Christopher Nolan.

From his work on The Prestige,

to his outstanding vision for The Dark Knight, Christopher Nolan is a genius of filmmaking. His directorial prowess is rather evident with all of his movies and whenever I see his name next to a film I can’t wait to watch it.

There are, of course, other directors that I can name off of the top of my head that I think is incredible. Steven Spielberg, for one, Ridley Scott, James Cameron, the Coen Brothers; these are directors with specific points of vision that turn the films they help create into utter masterpieces.

Without directors, movies would be bland portraits of art but with them at the helm films can help transport us to a fictional world that captivates our attention for hours on end. And that’s why I love movies.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day. May the Force be with you.

 

James Gunn Returns to Write and Direct ‘Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 3’

Last year the Marvel community was shocked when unearthed tweets from James Gunn’s Twitter account were revealed and they weren’t pretty. It was so bad in fact that there was a massive outcry about the horrible tweets and Disney had to fire James Gunn.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 was supposed to come out in 2020 but with filming postponed indefinitely it began to look like we might not get a third movie for this franchise.

Well, it’s just been announced that James Gunn has officially been reassigned to write and direct the movie and I am ecstatic.

Yes, James Gunn has made some mistakes on his Twitter (in the past) but he deserves to finish this story. He created these characters, he made us fall in love with these characters, and he had a vision for what the Cosmic approach to the Marvel Cinematic Universe would be.

This is great news and I can’t wait to see what new characters and ideas Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will bring to this incredible superhero franchise.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day.
