Re: Who are the ten directors you have seen the most films b

Thought I had responded to this one before but I guess not, so here goes:

1. Werner Herzog - 48
2. Alfred Hitchcock - 44
3. Roger Corman - 31
4. Howard Hawks - 29
5. Inishiro Honda - 25
t6. Akira Kurosawa - 23
t6. Fritz Lang - 23
t6. John Carpenter - 23
t9. Dario Argento - 21
t9. Sammo Hung - 21
t9. Terence Fisher - 21

Include Buster Keaton and Chia-Liang Liu for directors I've seen 20 or more by.

There are 66 directors on my list of "seen 10 or more", including such b-legends as Walter Hill, J. Lee Thompson, Godfrey Ho, Stuart Gordon, Chang Cheh, Lucio Fulci, Charles Band, Lloyd Kaufman, Albert Pyun (lol), Larry Cohen, Brian Trenchard-Smith and Wei Lo.

Re: Who are the ten directors you have seen the most films b

It is:

1. Woody Allen (67.78) 27
2. Martin Scorsese (71.27) 15
3. Brother Coen (72.08) 13
4. Akira Kurosawa (71.69) 13
5. Tim Burton (61.91) 11
6. Richard Donner (57.40) 10
7. Joel Schumacher (53.90) 10
8. David Cronenberg (65.50) 10
9. Alfred Hitchcock (73.90) 10
10. Charles Chaplin (78.20) 10

Obviously I'm a big fan W. Allen :lol: ... Shure there are for me on the first look some surprises like Richard Donner (but then Lethal Weapon series was responsible for that). And ofc there is Joel Schumacher which movie only like is Falling Down.

Re: Who are the ten directors you have seen the most films b

Werner Herzog -- 42
Woody Allen -- 38
Takashi Miike -- 37
Charles Chaplin -- 34
Ingmar Bergman -- 32
Rainer Werner Fassbinder -- 31
Alfred Hitchcock -- 30
Akira Kurosawa -- 27
Eric Rohmer -- 23
Martin Scorsese -- 20

A lots of old stays here. Most of my earliest directors into more thoughtful films, and they've still maintained their appeal through the years. Fassbinder & Miike would be the candidates most difficult to evaluate. Fassbinder hit his stride in the mid '70 years, but his earliest work is too alienating and uninvolved to truly appreciate, although its the period I'm most lacking in (aside from his ultra rare tv ventures). I'm also not incredibly fond of the works after '78, with the exception of the immense Berlin Alexanderplatz.
Takashi Miike and Alfred Hitchcock, as bizarre as it may seem to see these two next to each other, share similar problems - their material depends on a competent writer. Others on my list share this problem but these two seem most affected by this disadvantage. Takashi Miike is just all over the place and I'm perversely attracted to what he'll come up with next, I don't know why sometimes. He's got a combined average of 4.46 out of the films I've seen, and I just keep coming back for more.

I don't have any real qualms with the rest. Definitely favorites. Woody seems to have lost it over the years, Kurosawa's early work is dreadful, but the large bulk is real quality so that's all that matters. The thing that most actively comes to mind with this list is that I haven't watched anything of Chaplin's in a long time. Went on a binge when I first found him, but I haven't really gone on to complete it.

Scottathon wrote:I think it's probably more meaningful to go by total (approximate) runtime. I keep somewhat detailed information about what I watch.
I don't have time to go through runtimes, but as someone who watches a lot of shorts this is an issue in my list.

Woody Allen 80.63, 32 films
Alfred Hitchcock 81.66, 32 films
Eric Rohmer 83.76, 25 films
Fritz Lang 83.79, 24 films
Martin Scorsese 81.00, 24 films
Steven Spielberg 76.38, 24 films
Luis Buñuel 82.55, 20 films
Charles Chaplin 79.21, 19 films
Akira Kurosawa 87.17, 18 films
William Wyler 83.28, 18 films
Jean-Luc Godard 75.11, 18 films

Those who would make it based primarily on shorts.
Stan Brakhage 61.88, 56 films
Buster Keaton 77.74, 31 films
Chuck Jones 77.59, 27 films
Georges Méliès 77.83, 24 films
