As for Fuqua, I agree that his script selection is shotty, but Training Day is by far his best. One thing you have to consider though is that he aims for projects that many would consider to be "out of his realm" because of his melanin count, and because of that, he gets a lot of scripts that "other" directors may have passed on (Replacement Killers, King Arthur, Tears of the Sun, etc.)
