Eli Roth or Rob Zombie, who's work is more appreciated? Cast yer vote!
Zombie by far. Roth is a hack, both the Hostels were hella-stupid and cabin fever never impressed me.
Damn nice thread. I'll have to think about it. Both are fun directors while not being particularly amazing.
Come to think about it, I can't forgive Zombie for the Halloween remake. Absolutely terrible. I'll have to maybe give it to Roth for consistently putting out films that at least somewhat amusing.
Stir the pot billy, stir the pot.
Went with Zombie for many reasons, one being that I prefer the overuse of the term "motherfucker" to "faggot." It just has a better ring to it.
:lol: Does that make Rob politically correct?
The battle of the blindly-hated!
I went with Zombie because he has made at least 1 good movie and Roth has made 0.
Roth wins though Devils Rejects is better than any of Roth's movies.
Zombie isn't a Director, he's a chump. Roth all the way. Maybe if Zombie made one good film, I would reconsider. Alas.....
And Roth is an egotistical douchewaffle who's never and will never make a decent movie. A Vote For Zombie is a Vote For At least 1 good movie...can't say that for Roth :fuck:
I will never forgive Zombie for Halloween, but Roth clearly gets decapitated in this battle. The first Hostel was the only entertaining movie Roth ever made. Love the first two outings from Zombie! Roth is too much of a pothead anyway to make another credible film.
Well, when it coems to a battle between a egotistical douchewaffle and a talentless twat, I went with the latter. :lol:
I've only seen three Zombie films: House of 100 Corpses, Devils Rejects, and Halloween. When you say one good film, was it his next, or the one after that? :lol:
Cabin Fever was far better than anything I've seen Zombie do.
I revisited Hostel this weekend--in HD!--with a buddy who'd never seen it before but really wanted to. Maybe it was the vodka, but we got really drawn into it (this was my second viewing). Not saying this was a great film but it did captivate and made us squirm and laugh. Then it went quickly to shit.
I really dug Hostel. Cabin Fever wasn't bad, Hostel 2 sucked.
Still, that's better than I can say for the crapfests House of 1000 Corpses and The Devils Rejects. Not seen Halloween, 'cause as they say, "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me."
And I'll throw in the requisite GWB "We won't get fooled again"
can I say they both suck?
I've only seen Cabin Fever and House of 1000 Corpses. I wasn't expecting much going in for either, but while Cabin Fever surprised me with how good it was House of 1000 Corpses disappointed me. House had some strong elements, I just don't think they were put together right. Cabin Fever lacked strong elements but because they were put together in just the right way I liked it.
I wouldn't consider either one a great director, that's why I haven't watched anything more from them.
Who's the better director? Is the exact question. So I will leave out my personal thoughts on one of these guys to be fair as possible.
So disregarding even the story lines. I will be looking at directing style , cinematic vision, etc...
Hands down: Zombie
I really like Corpses and Rejects by Zombie. For Roth I only liked Hostel. Zombie wins it for me.
I've enjoyed all of Zombie's films to some degree. I liked Hostel, Hostel 2 was OK and Cabin Fever I just never could get into. So Zombie it is.
Out of Roth and "Zombie", I'd choose Uwe.
I'm an official memeber of the "fellate Roth club", so sorry Rob, I like your movies but there's no room for your dick in my mouth now, you've seen the pics of Roth's.:lol:
BTW, I love both of these guy's movies, and the fact that I've never met Roth might be factoring in. Zombie was such an asshole the day I crossed paths with him, he's lucky I bother to watch his films, much less buy them. Plus Roth's films have entertained me more. I do concur about rather hearing "motherfucker" than "faggot", although I missed the fag-bombs in Hostel 2 and do use both words myself in everyday conversation.
