    On that EW Best Directors list, Zack Snyder places higher than Pedro Almodovar, Ang Lee, Paul Thomas Anderson, Clint Eastwood, and Darren Aronofsky.

    I think that’s all that needs to be said about that list.

    That’s arguably the worst list I’ve ever seen, and Thompson’s annotations are just as bad.

    There’s no justification for PTA outside of top 5. James Cameron? ROFLCOPTER.

    I’ve been fuming about that list for a couple of days now…what the hell were they smoking when they came up with this list? It’s not even the names on the list, it’s where they are placed. Sidney Lumet is #50…dead last, while Jon Favreau is #25. Really?
