1. micheal bay
2. roland emmerich
3. anyone who thinks someone else should retire
This is one of the worst threads I’ve seen here. You may not like a certain filmmaker’s body of work, or hell, you may not even like the filmmaker himself, but to wish ill on his career is down right malicious, even if said in jest. There is a simple way to distance yourself from one’s films: you do not watch their movies. Simple as that.
Up with Glemaud, down with Rishi!
I wouldn’t wish that on anyone. I may be overly critical at times, but I respect every single filmmaker that has realized his/her dream and made a film. I’d rather Michael Bay continue to make films for the next 40 years than wipe away his entire filmography up to this point.
I’m sure this thread was meant in jest and I’m not trying to deprive the OP of that with my Buzzkillington post, but I thought it should be said somewhere and here was as good a place as any.
Speaking of retirement, one filmmaker that retired too soon: Antonioni.
Well, it was not Antonioni´s decision to retire early. He suffered a stroke in the mid-80s which left him severely aphasic and almost unable to speak. He could only film “Beyond the Clouds” with the help and co-direction of Wim Wenders, but obviously wasn´t able to work like he had done before since he couldn´t really communicate with his crew.
Very true Apursansar. Perhaps I should’ve put it differently: one filmmaker that was forced to retire too soon.
Woody Allen should retire now! I love Woody – I’ve seen every single film of his – but the past ten years have been abysmal.
@glemaud – did i say any names i dont want anyone out ,i love each and every film maker and his style of work .i am not a kind of a person who admire ridley scott and says tony scott is a bad film makers. if i appreciate art house ,den i appereciate entertainment also and thats makes the whole industry. so you should know about the person before commenting and i started the thread coz not everyone is like me who loves mike leigh as well as micheal bay and this place is to give ur views and take others ,this topic came in my mind and i posted.
It’s okay Rishi, you can admit that there’s a filmmaker you want offed.
I think filmmakers should retire when they want to. If they are still having fun with their jobs, then let them be.
@deck see yeah there may be films by certain film makers i dont like but that doesn’t mean i want him out. there may be many people who love that particular film and that director too.
Well, it’s really just another way of saying who you think is bad, worst filmmaker ever, etc. It’s more redundant than malicious.
For the record, Rishi, my comment was a joke, so uh, yeah.
I don’t think Bay should retire. I think he’s a very skilled director.
yup micheal bay is superb ,one of the top entertaining directors
Oh. Michael Bay???? I thought we were talking about Francis Bay. :(
“uwe boll” – you ever saw “mord in genf”… than you know what I’am talking…
About 95% of todays Directors need to get the Hell out!
Who would we talk about if they retired?
I think you created this thread with some names in mind. Do you mind sharing those names?
@daniel nope i just wanted to know what people have to say on this ,i dont want anyone to reitre .
I’m actually curious as to why you would be interested in what others have to say about this.
Also why would you ask such a thing and not have any particular filmmaker(s) in mind.
If I name some filmmakers who I believe should retire, or, should not be in the industry, and
give you some objective reasons as to why, would you accept that they should retire, or, not
be in the industry as well?
Yeah, Rishi I think we’re all a little confused that you ask a question and yet seem uninterested in answering it yourself. Why even propose the question at all if you yourself have nothing invested in it. Not trying to down you or anything, we’re just confused.
One man who should stick to his playground and no longer direct: George Lucas.
He can run Skywalker Ranch, he can help upcoming filmmakers if he so desires, but please, no more directing.
The last film George Lucas directed, in the real sense, was “American Graffiti.” There was motivation, there was some caring about shading the characters and getting real performances. There was a warmth to that film that showed through.
The first “Star Wars”? Great fun, a real ride; there the direction fitted the Saturday morning serial mode of the characters, so no problem if it felt stiff.
His last outing with “Star Wars”, however, was simpleminded in the extreme, very poor dialogue and perfunctory acting. no amount of noisy effects can hide that. Lucas was rusty, and didn’t have that much to pull from to begin with.
He has been absorbed by his technological advances, and that seems to be his real strength: pushing the boundaries of production techniques and making the Ranch stay on top of the game. He really should stick with that.
