FilmJunk.com did a survey of the Best Action Sci-Fi directors and people voted James Cameron at number 1.
Cameron has given us some great sci-fi films such as The Terminator 1 and 2 and most likely the best film in the Alien franchise – Aliens.
At number 2 was Steven Spielberg the man who gave us such thrillers like Jaws and Jurassic Park. I was surprised not to see him on top of the list.
Number 3 was a surprise to me, The Wachowskis did do a great film and that was The Matrix. The other films in The Matrix trilogy were awful movies that lacked plot, and I wasn’t a big fan of Speed Racer.
Rounding up the top 10: 4. Paul Verhoeven, 5. George Lucas, 6. Luc Besson, 7. Michael Bay, 8. John McTiernan, 9. Jon Faverau and 10. Paul W.S. Anderson.
