Note: I do enjoy The Prequel Trilogy as much as I do enjoy watching The Original Trilogy. Episodes I and II may definitely not be masterpieces of cinema at any standard. Terrible dialogue yes, a lot of an awful acting yeas, lousy storytelling at parts yes too. But still I do find them a very entertaining pieces of the saga - and I do prefer the Anakin story line over Luke's one. The Revenge of the Sith is my personal favorite episode of them all - I'm sorry.

I'd like to see mr. Lucas directing something again, maybe something like American Graffiti which is a very good work from him.

The directors selected into this list may not he "The Greatest ones of All Time", but certainly personal favourites of mine and ones I do give a lot of respect. Many of them are a lot different from each other so it's hard to compare them, like it's difficult to compare Robert Zemeckis and Charlie Chaplin or Akira Kurosawa and Peter Jackson or Sergio Leone and Steven Spielberg to each other.
