    I did a best Directors in Hollywood,how bout worst.
    Id say Rob Cohen,Paul Miller who directed The Pest,Hmm I cant think of any more that I truly Despise based on there work. I dont mind a Director messing up and making a bad film,but to do so with every film,or a consistent line of crap,thats where I draw the Line. But im not very hateful.hehe

    I would definitely say Michael Bay.

    Tim Burton? M. Night? Cameron Crowe? Smoking crack?

    I agree with Michael Bay. Joel Schumacher did Tigerland, which was good. But what about Frank Coraci? He did the one two punch of Wedding Singer and The Waterboy. Eeeesh.

    George Lucas
    James Cameron
    Joel Schumacher
    Michael Bay
    John Woo

    Ridley Scott almost joined the list, but Blackhawk Down redeemed him.

    You people are showing the hate to some of the greatest directors out there

    I'll second Kubrick, he was mediocre at best in every film he ever made

    Schumacher I'll second as well. Captain Bat-Nipple has no clue what he's doing

    I also smell that irony, but while we're at it, I'll say that Joel Schumacher should be burned at the stake.

    I have a personal distain for Aranofsky after watching Pi. I enjoyed his style in Requiem, and I suppose for that movie he has a more polished directing sense, but damn if he didn't join the ranks of "Director's who LOVE thier shakey-cams" in Pi. Little advice to you Darren: if the subject matter is not enough to cause unrest with the audience, then going spastic with the camera is only going to piss them off.

    It hurts to see Kubrick in this list, are you guys on PCP ?
    Many of the people mentioned in here,I have hated there films,but perhaps liked one,or a style.Schumacher did the loathed Batman & Robin,which was a kiddy flick.Just think ,in the right hands with a Real script Batman and Robin would have rocked,errr well at least good.But it was Sub-human.Batman on ice skates that just-so-happen-were-in-his-boots,what the ... They were skating around playing the diamond like a puck,,Arghh
    But come on Rob Cohen did the Worst Thing of 2001,Fast and Furious. and did anyone see The Pest? AGHGgh I wanted to play The Most Dangerous Game with the Director. well and John Leguiza..ahh never mind his name. What a moron he is,hes in a good film,and does a half way decent job sometimes,then he does shot in the head things like that..

    Bay is a master of the action movie. There are very few people that can shoot action as well as he can in Hollywood. He makes crappy popcorn action flicks, and he's proud of it and knows that he makes crappy popcorn action flicks.

    Tim Burton is master of his own little world. If you're connected to his weird little mind, it's absolutely divine. Otherwise, I'm sure people think it really sucks

    Ridley Scott has the visual composition skills of a poet, if nothing else, I can be sure that his films will blow me away in the manner in which they are shot and edited. The man is a master of his visual medium

    John Woo- See Michael Bay

    Roger Christianson directed Battlefield Earth, and I must agree that he found some very special blend of drugs. The barn door wipes! The lack of a basic device called a level! Make it stop!

    Kubrick on the other hand seemed to only be connected to some twilight zone. I've said it before and I'll say it again. Give me $60 million, I'll remake 2001 properly so that it has dialogue and makes sense. (And before any of you say it, yes I realize it has no sound for hours on purpose)
