Who is the Most Overrated Director?

28 August 2008 1:48 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

From left to right: Quentin Tarantino, M. Night Shyamalan, Kevin Smith, Oliver Stone, Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Brian De Palma, Ethan and Joel Coen, Ron Howard and Martin Scorsese In search of an idea for another top ten list I got to thinking about directors. Who is the best director? Who is the worst director? Those two questions require some serious research and I just don't think I am learned enough to say one way or another. Then I got to thinking about who may be the most overrated director? The best thing about this question is that it eliminates the likes of Uwe Boll from the conversation and I don't need to regurgitate what so many others have said concerning the directors that have gone down in history as great.

Brancato Jr. Bids For Bail

12 June 2008 9:03 AM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Former Sopranos actor Lillo Brancato Jr. has enlisted a movie producer and Catholic priest to help him win bail ahead of his trial for killing of a New York City police officer.

Brancato, 31, and Steven Armento have been in the city's Riker's Island jail for almost two years awaiting trial for the 2005 shooting of off-duty officer Daniel Enchautegui, who was trying to stop a burglary at the house next door to his.

Brancato has protested his innocence throughout, and is attempting to secure his release until the trial, with the help of Carlito's Way producer Michael Bregman and Reverend Chorbishop John Faris - who have both visited him and written letters to the Bronx Supreme Court administrative judge.

Bregman's letter reads, "Although I am not as familiar with the evidence as the court is - in my heart I believe Mr. Brancato was in the wrong place at the wrong time."

Reverend Faris writes, "Throughout this period Lillo has shown true compassion at the death of the officer." »
