The Weekly Discussion: The 90s in Cinema!

This time last week on The Weekly Discussion, I asked everyone who the most influential director of the 1970s was. The poll is now closed, and the winner with six votes, is Stanley Kubrick. In second place with four is Francis Ford Coppola and in 3rd place is Steven Spielberg. This week the random decade voting continues, but now I’m telling you guys why I’m doing this. In random order, I’m planning on asking readers the most influential director of each respective decade of the 20th century. Then, the ten winners will face off in a final poll which will be active for a month to find out who the most influential filmmaker of the century was! The first week we did the 60s, and the winner was Jean Luc-Godard. The second week we did the 30s, and the results presented us with a three way tie between Frank Capra, Howard Hawks and Jean Renoir.

This week the decade is the 90s, but I’ll be issuing you guys TWO polls, so please if you can, vote in both. The first is the main poll: Who was the most influential director of the 1990s decade? I’ll get you guys to vote in that one now:

Thanks for that. The second poll is trying to sort out the three way tie for the 30s. So, I ask you again, of the following three, who was the most influential director of the 1930s decade?

Also, a poll that I issued less than a week ago, What Do You Think of the Movie Crash? is now closed. The results were thin, but of the ten people who voted, four thought it was good, three thought it was bad, two thought it was okay, and one thought it was awful. Make of that what you will.

Anyway, back to the subject of the 90s. Thanks for voting in the polls, and if you have anything to say about the subject, please leave a comment. Thanks again.

  1. I don’t think there’s much doubt Tarantino was the most influential director of the 90s. If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then he is undoubtedly the most flattered of recent directors.
