Let Them Fight! Overview

Welcome to “Let Them Fight!”, where we pit two directors with similar backgrounds against one another and let YOU, the commenters decide on who reigns supreme!


Let Them Fight! returns for a third season starting September 17th, this time taking a look at foreign directors (hand picked by Sailor Monsoon)! The original format returns, with two directors battling it out weekly for a chance to move on to the next round. We have matches that we hope make you sweat over who should move on.

Additionally, FilmExodus has ordered a spinoff series titled Let Them Write! focusing on the screenwriters of Hollywood. It will start in January 2019.
