I argue Memento and Dunkirk are his best films.
Weren't they giving him a blank check to adapt The Fountainhead before he dove into the Snyder Cut madness?
As an 'MCU stan' (in that I very much enjoy Marvel Studios' output so far) I am also a big fan of Raimi's Spider-man 1 and 2 but I don't agree at all with the opinion that Raimi's films are better than some of the MCU's finest. They were fantastic for their time but a lot of their elements don't hold up in 2020.
Gee it's almost like Snyder doesn't care and is stirring the hornets nest because the fans that do odd stuff like fly #SnyderCut banners over the WB lot as well as #SnyderCut ad campaigns during ComicCon. Are the same ones that host campaigns and fundraisers for a suicide awareness charity. Can't imagine why the man would want to signal boost people like that no sir.
Wasn't there some news that the Snyder Cut's CGI cost would be something like 100 million dollars, so there's no way WB will fund it, bacause the movie tanked already.
I mean you have people in here being snide celebrating it crossing 1 billion even though it’s going to be the lowest grossing, least critically and audience approved of the three by some margin. Must be Disney stockholders?
MCU stans en masse don't shit on 1 and 2. Its generally agreed that the trilogy was a fun take on the character from a great film maker but not the definitive version. The 'seething hatred' aka annoyance comes from people bringing up the Raimi trilogy as if its the Old Testament and any new film with a different take from their childhood is sacrilegious.
The usual arguments I see are about the campy elements, the miscasting of Peter and MJ and some deviations from the source material.
Star Wars is a great property and world and I'd love to see more talented developers work on it.
Chris Nolan on Star Wars would be a trip.Star Wars is a great property and world and I'd love to see more talented developers work on it.
Like, I love that Christopher Nolan works on original films like Memento, Inception and Tenet. But having his mind on Batman was a thrill for the ages. Rian Johnson is young; he has plenty of time to continue to do original movies as well.
It's poetry. It rhymes.
Memento is the one I've replayed the most. I lost track of how many times I've watched it, but it's been far more than The Prestige. It's a marvel of a movie in so many ways and one of my favorite movies to introduce to people.I argue Memento and Dunkirk are his best films.
Tho The Prestige is the best in terms of re-playability. My issues with Prestige is some of the editing really takes me out of it and Scarlet Johansson is pretty meh in the role.
But I say his 3 best films are Memento, Prestige and Dunkirk.
It's also a movie that the studio had a new director basically remake most of it, so
He also has a first look deal with them and is still producing DC films.
