My favorite movie director is probably James Cameron.
Not only have I LOVED every move he's made, but I never ceased to be amazed at what he accomplishes in terms of the lengths he goes to make the movie he wants to make.
He is constantly pushing technology for the sake of his movies.
The CGI effects in Terminator 2 were insane, and haven't aged a bit.
When he made The Abyss, which is its own genre, he filmed the movie in a 10 million gallon water tank the studio built out of an abandoned nuclear plant.
For Titanic, his crew designed a camera that could withstand the depths of the ocean in order to capture footage of the wreck. He put up $300 million to build perfectly historically accurate sets and sank them in tanks to replicate the devastation of the sinking.
He truly spares no effort in creating these movies. And you can't help but root for the guy: EVERY SINGLE one of his movies has been a massive hit, and is still hailed as a masterpiece. Not even a mediocre film to his name.
Some of my favorite movies in particular are:
PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN
These movies are one of the things Disney nailed. I LOVE adventure movies, and Jack Sparrow and his crew certainly deliver the best sword fights and shipwrecks and nautical lore we know. There aren't many pirate movies out there, which is unfortunate, but if Pirates of the Caribbean is the franchise that monopolizes the pirate genre, I can totally live with that.
THE BOONDOCK SAINTS
This movie is often considered a cult movie, but it really deserves more attention than it gets. It's funny, it's violent--almost got an NC-17 rating--, it has fantastic characters and acting. You really have to watch this movie to understand how good it is.
GANGS OF NEW YORK
The title calls it like it is. This is my favorite Scorsese movie by far. It's a gangster film, but instead of another Italian mafia movie, this one is set in post-civil war NYC. If you want to see what 1800's thug life looked like, check out this 3-hour, ultra-violent epic exploring a snapshot of the underworld of America's most swarming, furious city. The movie is very dark and a bit pulp-ish at times, but that just adds to the tone. This is one of those films that exhausts you, but in a good way.
I am a fantasy buff and I do not quite have an order yet as there are so many options and it may change but the closest are
the neverending story
Disney's the lion the witch and the wardrobe
the blues brothers
the muppet movie/ the muppets (tie)
the dark crystal
Harry Potter and the sorcerer's stone
who framed roger rabbit/looney tunes back in action (tie)
mr. magorium's wonder emporium
director is tough
especially when you can't rely on their work to be good
i'm going to go with a safe one.
He had a small directing career but a great impact and it probably is worth mentioning that two of my favorite movies were directed by him
Clody Atlas, Mr Nobody, Interstellar, Memento,
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Donnie Darko, The Jacket, Shutter Island, the Thirteenth Floor - all those blowed my mind as a story
A really great film is La La Land
And some Marvel films
