No crime there; it's very good for what it is. Personally, I think Ridley's been a bit underrated in the 21st century. "Matchstick Men," the Director's Cut of "Kingdom of Heaven," "A Good Year" (one of the most palatable mainstream rom-coms I've seen over the last several years), and "Body of Lies" were all quality films, IMO.

Anyway, my list:
David Lynch: "Mulholland Drive"
David Cronenberg: "The Fly"
David Fincher: "Seven" (I refuse to put the number in its title )
Lars Von Trier: "Melancholia" (still the only film of his that I've seen, actually )
Steven Spielberg: "Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark"
Martin Scorsese: "Taxi Driver"
Sam Raimi: "A Simple Plan" (can't believe I'm the first one to list this )
Guillermo del Toro: (I actually haven't seen any of his films )
Jonathan Demme: "The Silence of Lambs"
Wes Anderson: "Fantastic Mr. Fox" and "Moonrise Kingdom" (can't pick between the two )
Alexander Payne: "Sideways"
Ridley Scott: "Blade Runner"
