Robert Luketic doesn't seem to inspire as much vitriol from fans that the likes of McG or Shawn Levy seem to, but looking at his back-catalogue his cinematic sins aren't inconsiderable. Maybe it's down to his first film, the really rather fun "Legally Blonde," but since then he's made "Win a Date With Tad Hamilton!," "Monster in Law," "21" (which this writer must admit to having a soft spot for), and his latest two films have been the irredeemable "The Ugly Truth" and "Killers," both starring Katherine Heigl.

The path of John Woo's Hollywood career was a sad and rather depressing one; the acclaimed action filmmaker made his first inroads into English language with "Hard Target," "Broken Arrow" and "Face/Off" but the dumb-but-fun feel of those films soon gave way to the dumb-and-boring vibe of "Mission Impossible II," "Windtalkers" and "Paycheck," and the filmmaker has, for the most part, returned to Asia, where he's rediscovered his mojo thanks to his acclaimed two-part epic "Red Cliff" and period actioner "Reign of Assassins," which he co-directed.

The Best Tagline They Could Come Up With Was 'In Martial Arts There Is No Right Or Wrong: Only The Last Man Standing'?Just yesterday, we were discussing the casting of MMA fighter Cung Le in Wong Kar-wai's Yip Man biopic and ruing the delayed production -- which will reportedly last over 12 months and finish up in 2011 at the earliest -- and the lack of promotional material, which was actually seen bandied around at a paparazzi-caught meeting between Wong and actress Song Hyo-kye.
