    You are correct that Kubrick did have 14, but Disney had 13. I keep everything on record. But really, at that point, they're so close it might as well be a draw. One point is frequently just a result of rigging.

    And by the way, Disney kept winding up in really easy matches, so that really would not be a very interesting essay.

    Mel you will always be in my Jewish heart of great film makers but Wilder is ultimately a 3rd deserver.

    Well, the conversations might make an interesting essay....who would've thought Walt Disney would have been more controversial than Roman Polanski? Besides, didn't Disney have 15?

    Gotta go with Mel Brooks because... he made movies I enjoyed! Spielberg and Brooks made my favorite movies in the whole competition (counting Indiana Jones in its entirety for Spielberg) so, with Kubrick and Leone out, it's Spielberg for the win and Brooks well have to settle for third.

    I'll go with Mel Brooks, since I know him better than Wilder.

    CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH!!!!

    I love both of them, and both of them are absolutely amazing. Plus, they're the only two guys to make it this far without me running out of posters! But I've gotta go with Hitchcock, because just because. Like I said before, he is a God.

    A shame that Mel Brooks couldn't quite get third. :/ Wilder is great though.

    In this match, both are incredible but I think that I'm going to side with Spielberg.

    I'm just pleasantly surprised Brooks made it into the Top Four!

    Gotta go with Spielberg. Hitchcock is probably the "better" direction, but I don't enjoy his movies quite as much.

    I think I too have to go with Speilberg. My reason is because even though I feel Hitch and Kubrick were great directors, they were not always great filmmakers. What that means is, had they been one person, we'd get someone like Speilberg: a great filmmaker. He has borrowed themes and styles from both and made some amazing body of work.

    I'll vote Steven Spielberg since I know him better, and he's seemed to have mastered more genres than Hitchcock.
