    If I were in his place, it would be very painful for my ego that someone thinks that my films are not deep enough to be considered masterpieces

    The IMAX prologue in front of the new Star Wars flick was a real thrill.

    Of course, had I thought for a second that I would insult or hurt someone with my comment, I wouldn't have posted it. But that's very considerate of you to remind us all to remain polite and delicate.

    I guess you didn't appreciate the many films you've seen from these directors. That's why I said "my own", didn't want to impose them on you - can't please everyone.

    Nolan has been one of the best directors of the millennium. To say his filming techniques haven’t at the very least bled into other movies is pretty wrong IMO.

    C'mon. He revolutionized movies that run backwards. Think of all of the movies that adopted that technique after Memento.

    :sarcasm:

    Being able to do "your own thing" without an established IP while getting backing for $200M+ budget is what makes Nolan "revolutionary".

    I wouldn't call him revolutionary, but he's one of the few directors since the 70s that gets free reign with a huge budget to do whatever he wants.

    Do we seriously have hipsters in here ragging on Nolan?

    Well, if you weren't impressed with his techniques in movies like Memento and Inception, how about acknowledging him turning around the entire comic book genre?

    That isn't what "revolutionary" means, though. It means sparking a revolution. Revolutionary filmmakers are ones who have changed how movies are made. I'm not sure that we can say that about Nolan. He is a great filmmaker and a proven hit maker, though, and is given carte blanche to make whatever movies he wants for that reason.

    Can’t imagine Nolan, a guy who refused to have his movies in 3D and shoots basically everything for true-iMax theaters, would be ok with releasing it to streaming services. He wants this shown in theaters where it belongs.

    That is why I am surprised that date has not been moved. HE wants it released wide

    New TV spot; 0:14 looks like Chernobyl or something.
