Thanks for your vote, Rocky!

I would pick Spielberg simply because of his versatility. He is not one of my favorite directors. Still I have extreme respect for him for infusing the interests of classes and the masses.

Exactly my point!

Even though not many of his movies are in my favorites, I acknowledge his importance.

 I know you wanted to focus on the blockbuster aspect but Spielberg gas proven to be more versatile, more prolific, more Oscar-nominated, more associated-to-something-other-than-Star-Wars, more everything than Lucas.

The only director who can match Spielberg in terms of popularity would be Marty.

I'm like you, I don't like every Spielberg film but even with that in mind, I would vote for him because of the reasons you mentioned. It's almost to the point of "objectivity",

I agree with what you're saying.

But, not every person would vote for Spielberg based on the objectivity. There would be a lot of Star Wars fans who would find Lucas to be their favorite.
