Phil’s Top 5… Underrated Film Directors

Phil’s Top 5… Underrated Film Directors

Other Cr*p Top 5

Each week Phil, from Phil’s Quick Capsule Review, takes a look at a different movie or TV related Top Five.  This time out: My top 5 Underrated Directors!

 

Close but no cigar: Isaac Florentine, Richard Donner, Neveldine/Taylor

 

5 – Don Siegel
Without Siegel modern cinema would look very different.  From the reboot of Invasion Of The Body Snatchers to an Elvis musical through to a John Wayne western and of course Dirty Harry.  

 

4 -George Miller
Mad Max director Miller doesn’t get much love for his non Mad Max films, but he’s a talented director who has could flip from hardcore action to kids fantasy with ease.  

 

3 – Martin Campbell
The man who twice reinvented the Bond franchise with Casino Royale & Goldeneye, Campbell is adept at high qulaity action on a relatively modest budget.  

 

2 – Joel Schumacher
Yes he made Batman & Robin but aside from his Batman franchise killing, he’s also made some excellent films.   From The Lost Boys to Phone Booth and A Time To Kill, Schumacher when focused can deliver top notch thriller.

 

1 – Tony Scott
From Top Gun to True Romance, from Enemy of The State to Unstoppable Scott was and remains one of my favourite directors.  Sadly no longer with us, Scott delivered top quality blockbusters like no other.
