    Thought you might mention Mark Pellington under music video directors. I think The Mothman Prophecies is quite good and one of the few paranormal movies with an actual point of view on the paranormal. Arlington Road is basically a Parallax View remake which has its moments but is problematic in some ways. After that he pretty much disappears

    Antoine Fuqua didn’t “pan out”? I’d argue he’s basically the 2000’s version of Andrew Davis. A journeyman/reliable action director who hit it big exactly once (The Fugitive/Training Day), after starting with reliable actioners (The Replacement Killers & Bait).

    i suppose it’s an unfair comparison, as Fuqua’s exceeded Davis by quite a bit. but i find them to be in the same class of director.
