Stanley Kubrick vs David Fincher...Who Ya Got?

I did one of these a week ago with Chris Nolan and Quentin Tarantino. Tarantino seemed to be the favorite. With both of those directors being current, it was easy to compare. But what if we take one of the best directors currently working versus one of the best to ever do it? Fincher has 10 major films to his name thus far, while I will highlight the 11 films of Kubrick's that are most notable.

The Killing (1956)

vs

Alien3 (1992)

Winner: Alien3

I'm not sure there is a single franchise with a more impressive lineup of directors than the Alien franchise. Alien3 doesn't get anywhere near the credit it deserves and is also one of Fincher's best looking films. While The Killing is an absolute classic, Alien3 has the edge for me in this matchup.

Paths of Glory (1957)

vs

Se7en (1995)

Winner: Se7en

20 years later and this film still leaves me in shock by the end every time I watch it. 99% of movies these days try to make you leave the theater smelling like roses, but David Fincher went against the grain with his adaptation and truly left the audience in awe.

Spartacus (1960)

vs

The Game (1997)

Winner: Spartacus

I dig The Game. It's creative and original. But Spartacus is fucking epic. Coincidentally, we have a father/son matchup in this look at two great directors.

Lolita (1962)

vs

Fight Club (1999)

Winner: Fight Club

Lolita showed the diversity of Kubrick early on. It's hard to really peg Kubrick in terms of his overall preference of genre. However, in this matchup, Lolita gets her ass kicked by Tyler Durden. Arguably Fincher's best movie and I would probably be able to say his most popular movie, Fight Club was a game changer for the director.

Dr. Strangelove: Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964)

vs

Panic Room (2002)

Winner: Dr. Strangelove

Panic Room is a good movie, but not in David Fincher standards. Meanwhile, "Gentlemen, you can't fight in here! This is the war room!" is one of my favorite movie quotes of all time and I try to fit it into almost every conversation I have. Dr. Strangelove has some superior long takes and is overall one of the greatest satirical films ever made.

2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)

vs

Zodiac (2007)

Winner: Zodiac

Every time I watch Zodiac I immediately think that it's my favorite Fincher film. An incredibly dark and frightening look at the Zodiac killer, this film has great performances all around and provides one of the spookiest, most heart-pounding scenes in recent history. The basement scene will forever put me on edge.

A Clockwork Orange (1971)

vs

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008)

Winner: A Clockwork Orange

In my opinion, Benjamin Button is Fincher's weakest film. But that's not the sole reason it loses this round. There is a ton of brilliance in A Clockwork Orange and the iconic performance by Malcolm McDowell is something to highlight.

Barry Lyndon (1975)

vs

The Social Network (2010)

Winner: The Social Network

This is probably Fincher's best looking film, at least I think so. It's a sharp and precise look at an extremely relevant story in our culture. I remember hearing that a movie about Facebook was being made. I laughed my ass off. Then I heard that Fincher was directing and it immediately became a film that I was really looking forward to.

The Shining (1980)

vs

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (2011)

Winner: The Shining

While Rooney Mara's performance is one of the most fearless of this century, it's hard to beat Jack when he's on point. The Shining is one of the few adaptations that I feel exceeds the novel itself. One of the more creepier contributions by either director, The Shining moves up on my all time favorite films list every time I watch it.

Full Metal Jacket (1987)

vs

Gone Girl (2014)

Winner: Gone Girl

I expect criticism on this one, especially since I've only seen Gone Girl once. Full Metal Jacket is an excellent film with two performances that are a serious cut above. The difference maker is the lasting impression that Gone Girl had with me. For the next three/four days I could not stop thinking about the movie or shake the uncomfortable vibe is gave me. Affleck and Pike gave us some fantastic performances and I really hope that they both get recognized by the Academy in February.

Eyes Wide Shut (1999)

Fincher's next film will match up with Kubrick's final contribution to film. Tom's waiting...

This is so not fair. I love Kubrick's work. He probably has my favorite film in this battle (Dr. Strangelove) but I'd have to go with Fincher. Other than Alien 3, I love all of his films. I'm still on the fence about Eyes Wide Shut and I never liked Lolita.

When I used to work for WB during that time of Superman Returns, they brought in Brandon's Superman suit to our dept. and I was literally inches away from it. It was on a stand fixture without a glass case (though I don't recall touching it, maybe I did?) and I was in awe, drooling... all I can distinctly remember was how dark-maroon the boots were.

Quentin Tarantino vs Christopher Nolan...Who Ya Got?

So these are two of the most wildly popular directors currently working and each of them have but a handful of films to their name, most of them being incredible contributions to cinema. So I want to break down each of their films in a one-on-one look and get feedback from you guys on who you think is the superior director.

Reservoir Dogs (1992)

vs

Following (1998)

Winner: Reservoir Dogs

Although I'm not the biggest fan of Reservoir Dogs, I think it's overall the more impressive debut film of the two. Nothing against Following which is a very underrated and unknown (well maybe not unknown to the users on this site) mystery film by Nolan. However, for me, Reservoir Dogs takes the match up.

Pulp Fiction (1994)

vs

Memento (2000)

Winner: Pulp Fiction

Pulp Fiction, hands down. QT's second film, in my opinion is the best in his entire catalog. This film is one of the reasons I love movies so much today. While Memento not only showed significant growth for Nolan behind the camera, both Pulp Fiction and Tarantino himself were years ahead of their time with this masterpiece.

Jackie Brown (1997)

vs

Insomnia (2002)

Winner: Jackie Brown

Slight edge to Jackie Brown on this one. For me, Insomnia is probably Nolan's most forgettable film. While Robin Williams gave a very cold and creepy performance, I felt like Pacino mailed in a good portion of his scenes.

Kill Bill: vol. 1 (2003)

vs

Batman Begins (2005)

Winner: Batman Begins

Not to take anything away from Raimi's Spider-Man films but Batman Begins really did start the Comic Book Film phenomenon that we are still experiencing almost a decade later. The decision to look at a Batman film as an actual film and not just a comic book movie was risky but definitely paid off.

Kill Bill: vol. 2 (2004)

vs

The Prestige (2006)

Winner: The Prestige

Two very good films, but for me The Prestige provides more rewatchability and also more questions when I watch it. Bale and Jackman are both on top of their respective games for this one and the film itself leaves you guessing and perplexed (at least it did me) up until the final moments when you see it for the first time.

Death Proof (2007)

vs

The Dark Knight (2008)

Winner: The Dark Knight

Yes.

Inglourious Basterds (2009)

vs

Inception (2010)

Winner: Inglourious Basterds

Two of my absolute favorite films of the last decade. Tarantino gets the edge here, however. These two films really couldn't be further apart in terms of story and style. But they both have a high level of originality and precision that few directors can produce. Inglourious Basterds provides us with the more creative and outlandish characters, and Tarantino's clever dialogue outweighs Nolan's visual artistry in this bout.

Django Unchained (2012)

vs

The Dark Knight Rises (2012)

Winner: The Dark Knight Rises

I'll be the first to admit that I'm a die hard fan of TDK trilogy. That's why the Bat films sweep this blog. In my mind it was the perfect conclusion to one of the greatest trilogies of all time. There really isn't anything negative or critical that I can say about Django as to why it doesn't get the win here. It's just that I'm a bigger fan of The Dark Knight Rises.

The Hateful Eight (2015)

vs

Interstellar (2014)

Winner: ?

Obviously the verdict is still out on this one with Hateful Eight still in pre-production. For me it will be the tiebreaker when looking at both of these brilliant directors in a film vs film scenario. Interstellar was a fantastic IMAX experience but I don't think it has great rewatchability. It will be fun getting all of the news and updates on Hateful Eight as the months progress.

So what do you guys think? As far as these movies matched up against each other who are your winners? What about each director in general? Who is superior in your opinion?

I commend you for giving top props to Reservoir Dogs & Inglorious Basterds (well deserved). But, I'll admit I went all sad face when I saw that Django got beat by TDKR. As much of a fan as I am of Nolan's Batman trilogy, I felt the last one didn't hold as much weight as the previous 2 (just my opinion, of course). On the other side of Two-Face's coin (yeah, I went there lol), we're all entitled to our opinions, so I definitely respect yours. ;-)
