Five Good Directors Who Ruined Their Own Careers With Bad Movies

Geek Binge: There’s probably hundreds of terrible movie directors out there. Hundreds of people who had little to know talent in directing, and delivered sub par to horrible films.

Excellent list. George Lucas still pisses me off by never leaving his Star Wars world. I actually liked Richard Kelly's Darko follow-ups. Southland Tales was him swinging for the fences and The Box was a creepy 70s styled horror flick with interesting twists.

I hope Kelly gets back into the filming world soon.

I agree about Lucas, but the last two directors (The Wachowski Siblings) might have a hit with Cloud Atlas. It appears intriguing and wonderful. It seems to have wowed at Toronto.
