Worst Directors working today (30 person items)

"One Inexplicably Decent Film: Iron Man 1 It is becoming increasingly clear that Kevin Fiege and his mysterious committee are the real masterminds behind Marvel Studios movies. Favoreau was given more creative control on the sequel and it ended up critically panned of course. After that they kicked his ass out. "

Actors Turned Directors (51 person items)

"The Actor: Favreau couldn't get a break, until he wrote and starred in Swingers, a film about how he couldn't get a break. It was a hit, and he got his break. The Director: Favreau made his debut with the semi-sequel to Swingers, Made, but quickly escaped the indie comedy ghetto with family-friendly hit Elf, before Iron Man made him an unlikely go-to guy for blockbusting "

Iron Man 3 (2013) He started with a wordy, hipster film, moved onto family fair, and then brilliantly took on the comic-book genre. And hell, he's succeeded in every area. His film after 'Iron Man 2' looks like a slap-stick comedy, so yet another genre."

"a. Made (2001) b. Elf (2003) c. Iron Man (2008) d. Iron Man 2 (2010) e. Neanderthals (2011) Favreau is creating quite a resume for himself in acting, producing, writing and directing. He's emulating Hitchcock's cameos but with larger parts... and needs about thirty more films to be mentioned in the same breath otherwise."
