Spike Mother ****ing Lee

Just watch Malcome X or 25th Hour and see what good direction really is instead of that flashy bull crap hack directing that most people do these days

There are movies where I loved the direction, but I can't think of any more where the director did it twice.

he did not direct those. He produced them. That is like people who said hostel was a tarantino flick.

Raimi directed all 3 spidermans, and the evil deads, that i know of.

Wow, I had no idea he directed that.

He's come a long way in the past six years

Sin City and Planet Terror are a far cry from kids movies.
