Directors who dominate: No, I’m not talking about directors who demand complete control of everything happening on their set. Well, it’s possible I am talking about those types of directors, as the guy I’m talking about has written the screenplay for every film he’s ever directed (and has acted in most of them). Of course I am talking about the quintessentially awesome, Quentin Tarantino (Oh yes, you can bet I am going to be thinking of Q words for this entire article… are you already sick of my quips?).
When I use the phrase “directors who dominate”, I mean it in the sense of him (or her) dominating Flickchart. Tarantino is easily one of the most dominating directors on my personal Flickchart, and on Flickchart’s global rankings. Let’s take a look at where he stands:
The Expendables may have won the box office battle last week but when all is said and done, Scott Pilgrim will probably end up winning the Flickchart war. This week features no such compelling storylines, and is definitely a week of quantity over quality. There are five wide releases this week, and all of them are on the “terrible looking” end of the spectrum.
By now, we’ve all had a good chuckle at the leaked Paramount memo showcasing the studio’s terrible slate of upcoming projects, including kiddie caper comedy Dunderheads and the criminally unnecessary Zoolander 2. Funny stuff, for sure, but I can’t help feel a tad slighted by this document’s instant popularity. After all, I’ve been coming up with shitty film ideas on my Twitter account, @MoviesIWannaSee, for almost a year now! Are you really gonna sit there and tell me my idea for a Jake Gyllenhaal Woodsy Owl biopic isn’t as hilariously stupid as Baywatch: The Movie? That’s cold.
To try and help remind people that I am the original shitty movie machine, I’ve compiled a brand new special list for Flickchart of wretched cinematic visions I honestly hope come to pass in my lifetime. Hopefully you Flickcharters will enjoy this selection of ideas, but honestly I’m hoping more that someone from Paramount accidentally reads this between cocaine snorts off the ol’ iPad and gives me a development deal. Fingers crossed!

Orson Welles was The Man, pure and simple. He’s one of those guys along with Cary Grant, Clint Eastwood, Errol Flynn, Rudy Ray Moore, and Charlton Heston that the movies will never see anybody like ever again.

Crazed Korean retelling of The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly – and really, how could you ever not want to see a movie described as such? This is already shipping to me from Netflix.
