Nana's Vibrator: Be careful what you wish for. Most movies are made for kids.
skepticultist: un4gvn666: Is it true that you don't use a second unit director, in effect shooting every frame yourself?Yeah, I've never used a second unit director. Occasionally, we'd hire a splinter unit for a day or something and splinter off a couple of shots, but I went into Batman Begins saying to the studio, "Look, I don't understand how to peel things away from my script and say these aren't important enough for me to shoot them. Because to me, if they're not important enough for me to shoot them, they shouldn't be in the film in the first place."I farking love this guy's philosophy.Yeah, I was impressed by that too.I don't always agree with Nolan's choices (letting Bale do the Bat Voice was dumb), but I really can't say there's much in terms of wasted screen time in his movies. And that's despite being pretty farking long movies.
thecpt: jesus farking christ, am I the only one who liked the films? Not to mention how incredible TDK was. Appreciate the guy. Reading this is giving me depth on what he was trying to accomplish, so thank you subby.
Detinwolf: My only problem with TDKR is that the city was on total lockdown, but when Batman escaped from the prison, they showed him walking back into the city via a bridge. The only bridge was barricaded by the national guard IIRC.
Decillion: It's the slipped disk heal punch. Ask your chiropractor.
Pontious Pilates: Yes. This is Fark. Every neckbeard with failed dreams has at least six better screenplays, right over there, under the cheesey poofs.
blackminded: ElusiveWookiee: So, Fark has hit Peak Batman and started hating it now?Where've you been? Also, Christopher Nolan is an overrated hack./keep up
MagSeven: thecpt: jesus farking christ, am I the only one who liked the films? Not to mention how incredible TDK was. Appreciate the guy. Reading this is giving me depth on what he was trying to accomplish, so thank you subby.Loved the films, but now that they are over, we can pick them apart and explain how WE would have done such a better job. You know, because we are successful writers and directors. We are brilliant.
moothemagiccow: The second one was great but the fact that the Joker got the prisoners and the citizens on separate ferries made no sense.
This Looks Fun: thecpt: jesus farking christ, am I the only one who liked the films? Not to mention how incredible TDK was. Appreciate the guy. Reading this is giving me depth on what he was trying to accomplish, so thank you subby.I'm right here with you. Really enjoyed the films and this interview. I'm surprised by the comments as well.
Hoboclown: I hope he shares the secret of the broken back heal punch. That could save lives!
