Thread.

Derailed.

Honestly, I think comparing Hitchcock and Miike for quality is comparing apples to a carburator. Both have the good qualities and their demerits. But they put out such different genre fare, that you really can't say one is better than the other. Hitch is great with suspense, but that's all he ever did, he never really ventured out of that (my guess is because of the system at the time, and that Hitch was confortable doing the work and creeping out his blond actresses.) The closest Miike has come to Hitchcock fare is with Audition, and Miike benefits because he jumps from genre to genre, and doesn't let himself get tied down to convention.

And fuckin' trolls suck. I hate those things.

Hitchcock directed Psycho in 1960, which went on to be credited as revitalizing the horror genre which lasted for the next couple of decades. He directed Psycho after decades as arguably the most consistently successful (commercial and critically) director of all time, stretching back to silent cinema.

When Miike revitalizes a genre he's never worked in before, in the year 2030, come back to me with "Miike's better than Hitchcock".

Hitchcock came up with a boatload of techniques still employed and marveled at to this day.

Miike himself would probaly slap the idiot who started this thread.

You may enjoy Miike's films more, that's fine. But he hasn't contributed anything to the actual craft of filmmaking. He has contributed films to the genre. BIG difference (you dumb ass!)

Had the poster posed actual debate points, this could have been an interesting thread.

But when he says "Miike is better than HitchCOCK!" Than it's just a troll who shouldn't be taken seirously.
