Greatest Number of Films You've Seen by One Director

#41

Post by mightysparks » October 22nd, 2011, 7:02 am

Only ones I've seen 10+ from:

Steven Spielberg - 18
Alfred Hitchcock - 18
David Cronenberg - 13
Woody Allen - 13
John Carpenter - 12
Tim Burton - 11
Wes Craven - 11
Akira Kurosawa - 10
David Lynch - 10
Stanley Kubrick - 10

Haven't really tried to concentrate on any filmographies yet. I had planned to, but got sidetracked doing other things. As I've said before, I'm not very consistent so there's only a couple of directors where I've liked the majority of what I've seen. So I never really get an urge to check out the rest of a director's filmography.

I don't know how you're counting your directors, but here's how I did it in OpenOffice Calc:

1) Export IMDb ratings
2) Open in OpenOffice Calc
3) In the separator field make sure "Comma" is selected and that character set is UTF-8, then click OK
4) Select all directors, e.g. click the first director, scroll down, hold shift and click the last director
5) Select menu Data -> DataPilot -> Start...
6) Make sure Current selection is selected, then click OK
7) There's a button with a director's name, drag 'n drop it to the Data field and double-click it and select Count and then click OK
8) Drag 'n drop the same button to the Row field
9) Click More and check Ignore empty rows and uncheck Total columns
10) Change 'Results to' to new sheet
11) Click OK
12) Select the B column by clicking it
13) Select menu Data -> Sort...
14) Click Extend selection
15) Select Sort by Column B and in descending order
16) Click OK

Here's currently my top 9 (7 or more):

Code: Select all

Steven Spielberg	15
Alfred Hitchcock	13
Akira Kurosawa		10
Charles M. Jones	10
Hayao Miyazaki		10
Tim Burton		10
Stanley Kubrick		8
Quentin Tarantino	7
Tex Avery		7

You had me worried for a second. I had this "OMG, I've missed some!"-flash before realizing that you must be counting the shorts.

I use my spreadsheet to calculate mine. I've finally reached 20 with one director: Alfred Hitchcock. Not even that much of a fan :( In total, I have 12 directors where I've seen 10+. Stupid low numbers :'(

Directors I have seen most of
Ingmar Bergman: 14
Woody Allen: 14
Akira Kurosawa: 13

Actor I have seen in most movies
Christopher Lee: 30
Vincent Price: 22
Toshirô Mifune: 18

Both share the number one spot, and are two of my favorite directors/writers. Very odd stuff! :mw_confused:

Maybe I should do an update too.

Just features, no shorts (Georges Meliès with 99 and Tex Avery with 68 would be on top then).

Hitchcock, with 41.
I don't want to look up my stats now, but I guess I've watched less than 20 of the next guys.
Reason is, Hitch is the only director whose filmography I've actively quested. Was worth it too.
I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.

I saw all of the films directed by them, so probably Coen bros, after them Bergman comes second I think.

Don't have a spreadsheet or anything handy to check, but I'm pretty sure Hitchcock comes first with 17 films seen. Carpenter probably comes second, seen 13 of his films. Then don't really know. I don't think there are many more (if any) of whose (feature) films I've seen even a two-digit number.

Director Count Distr. Avg Rat

Steven Spielberg 19 %1.39 7.1
Alfred Hitchcock 16 %1.17 8
Tim Burton 11 %0.8 6.5
Ridley Scott 10 %0.73 7.2
Clint Eastwood 10 %0.73 7.4


Top two are 100% correct, rest may vary just a bit. Oh and there may be some more 10+'s. Kubrick is one of them, with an exact 10 movies.

Spielberg is the largest director's catalog that I have covered, but haven't completed (20/29). I am actually one film short of seeing every Robert Rodriguez film (shorts and features).

Impossible.
I didn't count. I let criticker do that. When I looked at my director stats, I ignored the top with directors of who I saw (almost) only shorts. I just forgot the few shorts by Hitchcock.

In the top 10 Hitchcock is the only one where that number isn't a large list of shorts.

Georges Méliès 144
Stan Brakhage 88
Auguste Lumiere 77
Alice Guy 61
Louis Lumiere 61
Alfred Hitchcock 55
D.W. Griffith 49
Edwin S. Porter 49
James H. White 42
Charles Chaplin 38

I thought you didn't even use Excel. What do you use for these kind of stats?

I thought I remembered you saying something about not using Excel, after you posted that handwritten note about top tens a few days ago. Some were astonished, that you did that list by hand. I guess I didn't remember it well.

Nooo, I said I didn't use databases coz I can't work them out. I just felt like scribbling something by hand that time.
