Stuart is one of the best film editors out there.
On the other hand, he is less acclaimed in his own profession having never won an award. And I don't normally like editors who work more for the studios than for the film makers. He has been billed as a film 'doctor' who edits movies outside of the director's intent and can't even pronounce his actors' names properly. The only real positive thing that Stuart Baird has done that distinguishes himself from everyone else is killing Steven Seagal in Executive Decision.
