Well most art is determined by historical perspective and you don't really know how a film will age until years go by. This was a big problem Stanley Kubrick and Alfred Hitchcock had as many of their films weren't really appreciated in their time.
I have Andrew Stanton (Wall:E, Finding Nemo) and Hayao Miyazaki(Spirited Away, Howl's Moving Castle, Princess Mononoke) for many of those same reasons.
True but I don't think many of the films made recently will be remembered positively in even just a few years, also I think anything thats been made it to a movie automatically loses it's lustre for not being an original idea just banking in on the idea of the creator of said thing, also did you know they are making for next year I think a reboot of the spiderman series that debuted in 2001 on the big screen? that's appalling it's been barely 10 years and it really didn't need to be made.
