    I find the fact that the great Sam Mendes is the most downvoted director so far appalling. How can someone look at TND or DAD and then look at Skyfall and Spectre and say that the former movies are the better directed ones?

    TND and DAD entertained me, SF and SP didn't – at all.

    I find the fact that the great Sam Mendes is the most downvoted director so far appalling. How can someone look at TND or DAD and then look at Skyfall and Spectre and say that the former movies are the better directed ones?

    TND and DAD entertained me, SF and SP didn't – at all.

    Is the director responsible for the entertainment factor of the movie? To me many elements go into the entertainment value of a movie. Course we are all different, just seems to me that to hang a lack of entertainment on Sam Mendes or any of the other directors is a bit of an over reach.

    Sam Mendes as the director is a big part and factor in how the film turns out. I can only go by the way I experience the films, and his two films didn't have me at the edge of my seat the way CR or QoS did (as an example). I guess I'm not fond of auteur films like SF, and my dislike of SP have been well covered enough already.
