EW.com's list does suck -- any list that rates Judd Apatow, Sam Raimi, & Zack Snyder in the top 25 (much less #14, 15, & 16) is a complete joke. Yours is much better, though I'd put Eastwood around 4 or 5 -- certainly higher than Cameron, but to each his own. I am surprised by one glaring omission from your list, however. I have it on good authority that one of your entertainment contributors is a HUGE fan of M. Night Shyamalan. I won't divulge the identify of this individual, but I thought he would have used his considerable pull to sneak M. Night onto your list...

P.S. For more on how totally Shuster sucks, see comment #2 to that post.
