FilmExodus Battle Royale: And the Winner Is…

First Rounds are over. Redemption has taken place. Now, the only thing left is the final Battle. “Let Them Fight!”, the series where we pit two directors with similar backgrounds against one another, has transitioned into the moment you’ve all been waiting for. Where all the previous winners duke it out, and only one director can be left standing when the dust settles. This is FilmExodus Battle Royale.

For an overview of past fights and what’s coming up, click here .


After a month long delay the results are in! It was a close battle, let’s look at the results:

  • John Carpenter – 9 votes
  • Steven Spielberg – 8 votes
  • Ridley Scott – 3 votes

Now, you may look back and count 9 votes for Spielberg, but unfortunately there was some sneaky business going on around FEx concerning multiple accounts. Therefore, in my opinion, it seems unjust to award Spielberg co-honor when he technically didn’t earn it faithfully. If there’s a problem with this decision, I am more than willing to craft a rematch final between Spielberg and Carpenter.

But, as it stands right now, John Carpenter takes the crown as “The Greatest Director of All-Time! /s”

Coming in 2018… Let Them Fight! Female Directors …a seven part series coming exclusively to FilmExodus.

  • @sailormonsoon:disqus we did it


  • Q.T.

  • Jooshua

    WHAT?! Multiple accounts? Is this the FEx’s first scandal? Intrigue.. mama like.

  • Bring it on! Lol

  • Save that opinion for tomorrow! That’ll be controversial for sure!

  • Iron Man 2

  • I don’t think they’re watching it lol. I think they’re debating which one is the best lol

  • Poppity 🍂

    I believe you, Claudio. 😉

  • Poppity 🍂

    Good to hear! I’m tired but doing just fine! 🙂

  • I’m in!

  • Definitely not Sailor Monsoon

    I of course am not sailor Monsoon also I’m voting for Bava

  • I’m cool as ice Popy. How are you?

  • Poppity 🍂

    Hiya Linda! Hope you are doing well! 😀

  • Its awesome that John Carpernter won. He’s been one of my favorites since his Halloween movie. Its pure genius

  • Poppity 🍂

    I did! I meant aside from the directorial aspect. 🙂

  • I’m here Popy

  • Please always tag me. Then I’ll be right over.
    Unfortunately, I don’t know how much I’ll help poppity out since I also want to watch the Iron Man trilogy tomorrow lol

  • sailor monsoon

    I’d be offended if i was something i wouldn’t do

  • Didn’t you read the coming soon teaser!

  • Poppy needs some female company in the comments section!

  • Hey Duke and everyone else

  • Always got to make it sexual Poppy! You’re as bad as J-Mart!

  • Poppity 🍂

    Maybe using the term “put out” is not such a good choice of words. haha!

  • Poppity 🍂

    Very true! She’s great!
    I guess we just need some “Fight ’em” segments with lady candidates/themes. 😉

  • Poppity 🍂

    Why is that if anything fishy goes on, Sailor is automatically to blame? LOL

  • Poppity 🍂

    This is the exactly the point I’m trying to put across. Even if you do have multiple accounts, you don’t vote for someone who is in a deadheat with the other person you really want.

  • sailor monsoon

    I’m not Claudio.
    And if i was, which I’m not, voting for two separate directors makes no goddamn sense.

  • We also have @lindaowino:disqus!

  • Poppity 🍂

    Thanks, Sailor! 😛

  • Poppity 🍂

    Always the gentile, thoughtful response millennial. :-/

  • You’re actually doing Superhero Smackdown?

  • Should we put out an ad for female users?

  • Once Elizabeth left we lost half our female audience! I think @janegana:disqus is female (apologies if not) but she hasn’t been around FEx in a while.

  • You’ve already stated you’re Claudio!

  • sailor monsoon

    Or, check this out:
    Don’t do it either.

  • Joshua Martyniouk

    Well I can’t be the only one doing it.

  • sailor monsoon

    If your referring to Claudio, ego is not me, you’d remember that he voted for Spielberg.
    Again, That’s not how you rig a game in your favor.

  • sailor monsoon

    Because she shouldn’t have to

  • Poppity 🍂

    I don’t know of any and you’ve already invited some regulars from the other channel were I am Mod. Aside from those two places, I’m not very active online/on Disqus. 😉

  • Joshua Martyniouk

    I didn’t use multiple accounts Pops!

  • Joshua Martyniouk

    Fine we will start tomorrow with the Iron Man trilogy.
    Get the iron pumped for tomorrow!

  • Joshua Martyniouk

    Then why don’t you invite more female users Pops?

  • Poppity 🍂

    Not Sailor. It was probably @joshuamartyniouk:disqus because he wanted Spielberg more than anything. Sneaky little one!

  • Awesome!
    Though maybe wait a little more for the Thor trilogy..? I’m guessing not everybody will be able to go see Ragnarok right away

  • Poppity 🍂

    There seriously needs to be more feminine touches around this place … I’m starting to feel like Snow White. @DukeMyNameIs:disqus

  • Joshua Martyniouk

    I will start that on Sunday with The Thor Trilogy!
    Welcome to Superhero Smackdown where heroes rise and fall!

  • Yea I wonder who

  • Let Them Fight! is a series pitting directors. Superhero Smack-Down can be its own thing.

  • Seconded about Superhero films! I would be so down for that!

  • Good choice, he’s not the most revolutionary director and didn’t particularly change the face of cinema, but he’s more than worthy.

    Plus, I’m just glad that it’s not Spielberg

  • Poppity 🍂

    LOL Well, with Hitch being as he is, there’s not much room to share the throne. 😉

  • Poppity 🍂

    It could not have been you because you would have never voted for Spielberg. 😉

  • Joshua Martyniouk

    John Carpenter is a great choice!
    Let Them Fight! Superhero Films has to be this month!

  • sailor monsoon

    That’s not Kubrick

  • sailor monsoon

    What sneaky snake used multiple accounts?

  • Poppity 🍂

    Carpenter may be crowned for now but, in the end of things, there can be only one.

  • TheDeadFellow

    Not my choice but a worthy one none the less.
