Also Warren Beatty (I liked Rules Don't Apply, though it was clearly his worst movie).

Mr. Arkadin and The Stranger have extremely generous ratings on there.

Tarkovsky has no film under 7 as far as I can see.

Great Expectations is a 6.8, so Cuaron qualifies.

Might need to bump up the bar to 7.

I'll throw out Albert Brook's name.

Although he isn't know for making great movies, I've found every one of his films enjoyable and have never been disappointed after watching any of them. (And, yes, that includes Looking For Comedy In The Muslim World which was panned by several critics. I found it to be as funny as hell.)

It is hard to like every movie in a director's canon.

I never saw the BFG the movie Spielberg did.

Scorsese and Oliver Stone might be the closet to where I liked the majority of their movies though Stone probably had more failures.

Kathryn Bigelow? Blue Steel and K-19 aren't great, but I don't remember them being bad either. I never saw Weight of Water though.

Blue Steel and K19 are excellent.

Someone mentioned her. Weight of Water is 5.9 on IMDb and, having seen it, can confirm it's not good.

Weight of Water is terrible. Not a fan of Zero Dark Thirty, but it's just not my kind of film.
