Terry Gilliam. He's far better than Tim Burton, IMO, and he's one of the best filmmakers ever, but I rarely see him or his films brought up. Just look at his catalog; Brazil, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, 12 Monkeys, among so many more.
BQ: Do I even have to answer this Donny? SCORSESE!
BQ2: James Cameron
Gilliam - Brazil
Scorsese - Goodfellas
Cameron - Terminator 2: Judgment Day

I don't know who I'd say for most underrated. Maybe David Cronenberg? Some of his are Shivers, Rabid, The Brood, Scanners, Videodrome, The Fly, The Dead Zone, Dead Ringers, and Existenz.
BQ: ...Scorsese or Tarantino...
BQ2: Psh. Tim Burton or James Cameron.
Cronenberg: The Brood.
BQ: Goodfellas / Pulp Fiction or Inglorious Basterds.
BQ2: I seriously don't think I like any of their movies. Maybe The Nightmare Before Christmas because I liked it as a kid.

David Cronenberg maybe. He deserves to have more talk than a lot of other directors.
Eastern promises deserved to be nominated for a best picture oscar in 2007. I mean, Juno got nominated...?! eastern promises was a far far better movie. An amazing movie. & it got overshadowed by an overrated quirkfest (that sounded a bit pretentious..Sorry if I offend any Juno fans)
BQ- Gregory Hoblit :p my favourite, but best ever would be David Cronenberg!
David Cronenberg-Eastern promises

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Amadeus, Man on the Moon, The People Vs. Larry Flint.
All great movies, but I never hear anyone talk about him. Sad to say I just found out about him today. I'm about to watch Ragtime, which he also directed.
BQ- The Coen Brothers
One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest, The Big Lebowski.

I think that Edward Zwick is an incredibly underrated director. He made The Last Samurai, GLory, Blood Diamond, and Courage under Fire all of which I thought were very good movies and I love The Last Samurai and especially Glory.
BQ- Scorsese- The Departed is my favorite but I don't think its his best particularly
BQ2- James Cameron- The Terminator. It didn't need ANY sequels.

Most underrated: David Fincher of Fight Club, Se7en and recently The Social Network
Best ever: Probably Spielberg. He still is a master at direction.
Most overrated: Stanley Kubrick. He made great movies but he was a terrible director.
