Hmm good thread, I used to be a blind devotee of all things British Cinema, but hopefully am a bit more critically objective these days. These are people I tend to make a point of having a look at their stuff regardless of critical reception.
Actors : Paul Bettany, Brian Cox, Pete Postlethwaite (make more films please!) Paddy Considine, Simon Pegg, Tom Hardy and Christian Bale.
Actressess : I've warmed considerably to Rachel Weisz of late having found her grating in some earlier stuff. Kathy Burke and I'm in love with Jamie Winstone, she has a first prize chin, alluring eyes and a talent which only seems to be getting better.
Directors : Edgar Wright, Neil Marshall, Matthew Vaughan and Paul WS Anderson (Sue me! ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?!) and the legendary Shane Meadows.
Actors : Jude Law, a great turn in Gattaca aside, I just find him very one dimensional. Ewan Macgregor every time he's required to speak in an American accent a little part of me dies inside. Rhys Ifans and Danny Dyer who plays Danny Dyer in every film he's ever done.
Actressess : Imogen Poots, Kelly Brook, Helena Bonham Carter. Kate Beckinsale and Minnie Driver.
Directors : Guy Ritchie (Too much slow motion), Tony Scott (Too much WTF I'm having a seizure!) and Michael Winterbottom (Just don't rate him.)
