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.

…JOHN CARPENTER!

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.
