Welcome Back to Showdown Sunday #15.
Every week we pit two movie related forces (characters, movies, directors, etc) against each other and you guys vote who wins (via. Fan Poll).
Did you know that both Quentin Tarantino & Christopher Nolan have each directed exactly nine feature length films? The moment I realized this, I thought it was the perfect setup for the first Showdown Sunday of 2016. Who in your opinion is the better director?
Two Masters of Original Films
Quentin Tarantino has dedicated his career to producing independent film and original stories. His films are practically their own genre, because only a talent like Tarantino can deliver them. Today he strives to prove that old-fashion filmmaking still has a place among this digital age of film.
Christopher Nolan has successfully transitioned from independent film to huge blockbusters, leaving an everlasting mark on both. He remains as one of the few directors in Hollywood that make studios comfortable investing into big-budget films with original stories, as long as his name is attached.
Let’s take a quick look at the films of both directors.
- My Best Friends’s Birthday
- Reservoir Dogs
- Pulp Fiction
- Jackie Brown
- Kill Bill Vol. 1
- Kill Bill Vol. 2
- Inglorious Basterds
- Django Unchained
- The Hateful Eight
- Batman Begins
- The Prestige
- The Dark Knight
- The Dark Knight Rises
