A few awesome directors

Here's a few awesome modern directors who'se work you should be watching.

Kim Jee-Woon

                                                        I Saw the Devil
 An insane movie about a man on the trail of revenge against the serial killer who killed his pregnant wife.

                                                      A Bittersweet Life
 A movie about the workings of the korean mob and one of the enforcers who gets turned on by his own people.

                                                      A Tale of Two Sisters
 A chilling horror / psychological thriller movie about a young girl who returns to her home with her sister after something horrible happened to them.

Park Chan-Wook

                                                Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance
 A blood-curdling movie about a man who kidnaps a young girl to pay for his sisters surgery and how it all goes horribly wrong.

 What is now considered a modern classic, this movie is a must-see. The story is of a man locked into a room for 15 years with no knowledge of who the perpetrators are or why they are doing it, then he's released and has 5 days to get his revenge.

                                                    Joint Security Area
 An amazing movie about the murder of two north korean soldiers on the border between both koreas and the investigation into it.

Paul Thomas Anderson

                                                         Boogie Nights
One of my favorite movies ever, this masterpiece needs no introduction. Go watch it.

                                                     There Will Be Blood
 Sporting one of the best performances in recent memory by Daniel Day-Lewis, this movie is one of the best character studies ever made.

 A beautifully shot movie about seemingly unrelated lives that become intrically related, this movie is a must-see for any movie lover.

My Big Fat Greek Wedding is the most profitable movie of all time earning a 6150% return on investment.


This movie made over $368.7 million worldwide, becoming one of the top romantic films of the 21st Century with just a 5 million dollar budget. It was even the fifth highest grossing film in 2002. I find this shocking.
