The Movie Lovers: The Official Podcast of The Gibson Review

The Gibson Review has entered new territory: podcasting.  Join my wife, Shanna Paxton, and me as take the blog to your ears, discussing movies and movie-related topics.

In this episode we introduce the podcast by way of discussing why podcast and what brought us to this adventure. We openly admit this is new territory for us and we know very little about the technical side of podcasting; we're learning as we go. So, we apologize if the sound is a little rough. We also ran a little long, but we hope to work our way to a manageable 90 minutes on average.

You'll find a new episode posted here every other week. Keep your eyes peeled. Below are the episode and the show notes.

Top 20 Female Directors

If you are a movie lover savvy enough to name film directors chances are the first names that come to mind are male: Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese, Quentin Tarantino, James Cameron, David Fincher, to name a few probably front-runners. Most people are hard-pressed to name a female film director. When I thought about it I was able to list upwards of 20 directors who are women and, after researching, was able to dig up more than 20 more.

These talents behind the camera are deserving of every bit as much notoriety as any successful male director. After researching up to 40 female directors, using a combination of theatrical output, critical success, average box office, and good old subjective opinion, I have ranked the top 20 female directors you should know.
