Directors with 3 or more films I like of their filmographyby reynaldo_n | created - 12 Dec 2012 | updated - 10 months ago | Public
A list of the directors that had made at least 2 great films. Every director on the list is going to have in each description a list of those movies. Since I haven´t seen every movie they have done in their lives (I hope) the list will be updated with the missing Good-Movies after watching them. By the way, since this list its based on my personal opinion every director have in their description the movies that I have seen but that I hate or that I feel are just forgettable.
