One of the most useful apps I’ve ever come across. I’ve used it for years and recommended it to all my friends. Even if I’m not the type to have to pee during movies often, being able to pull up the app and pass my phone to my mom/friend/grandma so that they know when to go to the bathroom has been invaluable. Because then I don’t have to summarize anything when they get back!!

There are many famous movie-makers, but none have the unique style and mastery of Stanley Kubrick.

3. Hayao Miyazaki

He’s also the founder of the production company Studio Ghibli, a source of numerous great artists. The director inspires countless others with his beautiful style.

A museum in Tokyo pays tribute to his artistry and displays Miyazaki’s unique status among highly popular filmmakers.

4. Quentin Tarantino

Quintin Tarantino is responsible for some of the greatest cinematic moments in history. His unique style of blending humor and drama is supremely original. The dialogue he writes is a significant aspect of his brilliant movies.

His debut film, Reservoir Dogs, opens with the primary characters having a philosophical debate about the righteousness of tipping restaurant staff. They cover this seemingly mundane topic with hilarious depth.

The use of creative dialogue is among many hallmarks of his style. Visually stunning films like Kill Bill showcase his numerous talents. Tarantino’s work is always slick, dynamic, and hilarious. Many consider him number one among cool movie-makers and the best directors in the world.

5. Oliver Stone

Oliver Stone is among the most influential filmmakers ever. His famous movies include classics like Platoon and Natural Born Killers.

This screenwriter and director is an Academy Award winner, and his work influences countless other creators.

6. Alfred Hitchcock

Alfred Hitchcock is arguably the most influential filmmaker on this list. His early movies Psycho (1960) and The Birds (1963) are revolutionary.

Masters of Filmmaking

The names on this list are all legendary and have extraordinarily unique styles. Their work is timeless and transcends genres. These filmmakers inspire others, but none can copy their quality.
