im sure Hitchcock is a fine director, but i really havent seen his movies, just Birds, Psycho (which i think its one of the most overrated movies of all time) and..... :huh: thats about it....

Ive seen every Steven Spielberg movie except for Munich, Always, 1941 and The Sugarland Express.
-Jurassic Park, Saving Private Ryan, Temple of Doom, Raiders of the Lost Ark and Jaws are in my All time Favorite List, JP beeing my favorite movie

so my vote goes to Spielberg :happy:

Rear Window is probably my favourite of all the films listed from both.

nice as these were always my 1-2 picks.

************************************

based on quality, they are even so Hitchcock gets the vote based on his greater quantity of great movies.

Hitchcock.

Even though I haven't seen much of his stuff, and I've seen most of Spielbergs, I want him to pull off the mega-upset because Spielberg wins every other director competition anyways.

Hitchcock's best films have a depth that none of Spielberg's, save in parts Schindler's List, have reached. Hitchcock's treatment of the Nazis in Notorious, for example, is far more frightening and unsettling than Spielberg's in Schindler's List.


So...


Hitchcock :happy:

Hitchcock by far.

Rear Window and Birds are two of the best films every made. Period. ;)
