Let Them Fight! Special Christmas Edition

Welcome to Let Them Fight!, where we pit directors with similar backgrounds against one another and let YOU, the commenters decide on who reigns supreme! For an overview of past fights and what’s coming up, click here .

What to Consider

Obviously, which director do you think is better than the other? But what film of theirs proves your point. Remember, it isn’t so much about which film made the most money or was a critical darling, but in your mind which Director is better than the other in terms of style, risk, scope, etc.

How I Tally the Votes

I look at the comments posted (only first comments, no replies) to see who they picked. I don’t count comments that don’t give a clear answer on who they chose. If you want your comment to count make sure it is not a reply to someone else’s comment and has a clear definite winner.

Let Them Fight! is back with a special Christmas edition. To have been selected, these directors had to have directed a classic Christmas film, and were not part of Season 1 of the series. So, the three chosen directors are: Ron Howard, Chris Columbus, and Jon Favreau.
