Martin Scorsese - Goodfellas, Casino, Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, Gangs of New York
Francis Ford Copolla - Godfather, Godfather II, Apocalypse Now
I'll edit more in sometime.
Definitely Hayao Miyazaki. He has yet to make a film I haven't loved.
Joel and Ethan Coen, Woody Allen, Jim Jarmusch, Nanni Moretti, Richard Linklater, Apichatpong Weerasethakul, David Lynch, Derek Jarman, Gus Van Sant, Wayne Wang, Kim Ki-Duk (when he's not torturing fishes), Takeshi Kitano, John Sayles, Werner Herzog, Cory McAbee, Frédéric Back, Aleksandr Petrov...to name a few.
Abram, spielberg, and whedon
Quentin Tarantino, Stanley Kubrick, Sergio Leone, Coen brothers, Francis Ford Coppola, Martin Scorsese, David Lynch, Paul Thomas Anderson, Hayao Miyazaki, Orson Welles, Christopher Nolan, David Fincher and Brian De Palma are the ones I can think of at the moment.
Tarantino, Scorsese, Coppola, the Wachowskis, Wes Anderson, Rian Johnson, Ridley Scott, John Carpenter, Sammo Hung, David Fincher, Andrew Dominik, Coen Brothers, David Lynch, Takeshi Kitano, Christopher Nolan, Stanley Kubrik, and Luc Besson. Most of those are the usuals, but Kudos if you get the likes of Andrew Dominik and Rian Johnson.

I sure was funner back then, possibly even stupider....
George Romero. He practically created the basic concept of zombies, and Dawn of The Dead is a strong contender for my favourite movie of all time. I'll be grateful to him forever.
Who is this git?
I like a lot of James Cameron's movies. They're all good except for Avatar.
Some of my favorites include Spielberg, Ron Howard, and Quentin Tarantino.
