The Prestige author slams Christopher Nolan's "embarrassing" Batman films

16 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The Prestige author Christopher Priest has criticised Christopher Nolan's Batman films.

The writer described Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy as "boring and pretentious", adding that films like The Avengers and Iron Man are more "fun".

Ranking all 9 of Christopher Nolan's movies from worst to best

Nolan turned Priest's novel into a feature film in 2006, between his work on Batman Begins and The Dark Knight.

Priest told Skript.fr: "I've only ever had one meeting with him, when the film was finished. Because I wasn't very interested in him. We all have different points of view on the world. To the world he's this great, innovative filmmaker; to me, he was a kid who wanted to get into Hollywood."

He argued that The Prestige and Memento are the best films Nolan has worked on.

"I don't like his other work, I think it's shallow and badly written. I've got kids who like superheroes, »

Thn Turns 11! A Look Back At Our Favourite Films – Batman Begins (2005)

25 November 2014 4:45 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

If we go back before the huge success of The Dark Knight (2008) and the media-hyped excitement of The Dark Knight Rises (2012), there still lives a pure gem from Christopher Nolan in the shape of Batman Begins (2005).

Tim Burton’s Batman (1989) and Batman Returns (1992) brought our cave and mansion dwelling hero to the big screen in a way no-one had ever expected and those two movies, very specifically, still stand up to the endlessly changeable tests of time. When Joel Schumacher took up the reigns for the likes of Batman Forever (1995) and Batman & Robin (1997), none of us ever thought that the Bat-man would make such an ambitious return some years later when Christopher Nolan turned up with an absolute game-changer for both his back catalogue and the superhero film industry.

Batman Begins remains one of the best of the last 11 years with a truly tremendous origin story that’s swathed in truth, »

Watch 24-min Making of Doc on Christopher Nolan's Memento

21 November 2014 5:19 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Christopher Nolan's second film, Memento, is a hard movie to describe and sound sane. The events in Memento are shown backwards and forwards at the same time (sounds insane, right?). The Sundance Channel did a making of documentary called "Anatomy Of A Scene." It's 24 minutes long, and if you haven't seen the movie, stop and don't watch this video. It's jam-packed with spoilers.

Memento has a methodically created structure and narrative. The film is the best example of the Nolan brothers' writing skills and Christopher's editing prowess. With all the big budget films that Christopher Nolan has been creating over the last decade or so, I wonder if he can still tell a smaller story.

'Interstellar' Ending Explained: Time Travel and the Real Science

21 November 2014 10:16 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Whether you love him or hate him, filmmaker Christopher Nolan has continued to find new ways to challenge his audience, and paradigms of filmmaking as a whole, throughout his remarkable career. His breakout hit Memento shattered audiences' expectations of a traditional narrative story, while The Dark Knight trilogy redefined the superhero genre in ways nobody even knew they wanted, until they saw it with their very eyes. Inception proved that one does not need to induce hallucinogenic drugs to get the head trip of a lifetime, and even his more straight-forward films like Insomnia and The Prestige are exceptionally bold. Regardless of what you might think of his latest offering Interstellar, most will likely agree that Christopher Nolan has outdone himself, offering truly outstanding visuals coupled with a mind-shattering narrative that still has filmgoers talking weeks after opening day.

With all that being said, Interstellar, all 169 minutes of it, isn't »

Watch: 24-Minute 'Anatomy Of A Scene' Documentary On The Making Of Christopher Nolan's 'Memento'

20 November 2014 1:47 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

These days, Christopher Nolan is known for his big-budget, tentpole spectacles. “The Dark Knight” trilogy. “Inception.” "Interstellar.” But we can’t forget the director’s much smaller, more indie pedigree. While Nolan’s first film, “Following” didn’t do much business at all, it put him on the map, and he seized the opportunity with “Memento." Told “backwards,” the film stars Guy Pearce as Leonard, a man with no short-term memory on a quest to find his wife’s murderer. To keep track of the clues he unearths, he tattoos vital information on his body. The film bucked convention, jumping chronologically, alternating black and white with color, and depicting many scenes in reverse, so that audiences saw the end first, and then watched events unfold that led there. If you're a fan of the film, this Sundance Channel "Anatomy Of A Scene" documentary on the making of the movie is worth a watch. »

Beyond Space and Time: What’s Next for Christopher Nolan?

15 November 2014 12:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Gavin Logan on what’s next for Christopher Nolan

Last weekend saw the worldwide release of Christopher Nolan’s latest and perhaps one of his most widely anticipated movies to date Interstellar starring Matthew McConaughey as a former Nasa pilot turned corn farmer who is tasked with helping to save the human race from extinction. Like most Nolan movies it was met with an explicit reaction and critical dissection from critics and fans alike. The one word that kept popping up in various reviews and opinion pieces was “ambitious”, and I can see why. It’s the perfect way to describe Interstellar.

This isn’t a review (you can read those here and here) so I won’t go into the laborious and intricate details of the movie or why it did or didn’t work for me but one thing is for sure, you can’t go any bigger »

What If Tars from 'Interstellar' Had a Real Career on the Big Screen?

14 November 2014 10:40 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Though there are plenty of people out there who have some discrepancies with Christopher Nolan's sci-fi drama Interstellar, one of the more unanimous points of praise has been for the block robot Tars and his colleague Case, both of which assist Matthew McConaughey on his mission to save the planet. The robots are fitted with incredible artificial intelligence which allows them to have a sense of humor and even a judge of how honest to be (though it's all regulated by the astronauts themselves). Well, Vulture liked the robots so much that they imagined what it might be like if Tars was a movie star, and it's great. Look now! Here are the posters for some of the biggest movies Tars has starred in before Interstellar: See a couple more of these faux movie posters starring Tars over at Vulture right here.

Why Are Christopher Nolan’s Movies So Fun to Argue About?

13 November 2014 3:01 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

If Christopher Nolan is not the most popular, talented, influential or even interesting director working today, then he is certainly the most important.

The release of a Christopher Nolan movie, even one that “underperforms” at the box office like this week’s Interstellar, is by far the most fervently talked about work of art for several news cycles. Even in the face of constant barrages of Taylor Swift headlines, Nolan’s work is intensely debated and scrutinized in a way no other filmmaker receives for even one film, let alone all of them.

In fact, the wild, ranting, nitpick-y plot hole posts that were previously confined to IMDb message boards have this week migrated to real entertainment news sites. This one found 21 things that didn’t make sense about Interstellar, this one made objections to the science and plot on the whole, and this one found only 13. For whatever reason, »

Movie Review – Interstellar (2014)

12 November 2014 10:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Interstellar, 2014.

Directed by Christopher Nolan

Starring Matthew McConaughey, Wes Bentley, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, David Gyasi, Michael Caine, Topher Grace, John Lithgow, Casey Affleck and Ellen Burstyn.

Synopsis:

A group of explorers make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage.

Film: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship celluloid. It’s mission: to survive amongst the ever-growing digital age around it, to boldly go where many have gone before, but few venture to anymore. It’s strange to think that the filmmaking that got us to this very point in cinema history is close to extinction, but perhaps not as quickly as some think, especially if the director of Inception, Memento and The Dark Knight Trilogy gets his way. Interstellar, his latest multi-layered, multi-million dollar epic takes us to the »

A Look Into The Mind of Christopher Nolan

11 November 2014 5:45 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, whose title alone in reference to the director’s name equals cinematic moxie, has the makings of a filmmaker putting his direction, vision and ideas to the test, where a running time of 169 minutes set in milieus that rocket from one plane of existence to the titular other — the interstellar, infinite void — becomes a creative challenge, which every director, who thinks as big as Nolan does, at some point in their careers confront.

Blockbuster directors, all of whom auteurs in one way or another, like the late great pioneer Georges Méliès, the aquatically keen James Cameron, the master of lens flares Michael Bay, the attentively adjusted Riddley Scott, the perfectionist Stanley Kubrick, or the wondrously curious Steven Spielberg have all communed with — or taken the trip to — the cosmological land, all with different results.

Most certainly, it is a place not only of sublimity, but, more importantly, »

‘Interstellar’ and the Relativity of Cinematic Time

11 November 2014 6:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Time is a precious resource in Christopher Nolan’s most personal (i.e., non-bat-related) films, and time rarely ever runs in a linear, straightforward fashion. In Memento, time is split between a receding past and a stagnant present that changes the shape of knowledge and memory with every revelation it produces. In Inception, time is collapsed upon itself many times over, with a singular moment in one tier of consciousness extending to a multiplied time scale in others. Interstellar perhaps presents his most tortured relationship to the movement of time, wherein time is relative yet deeply consequential depending on your orientation with the cosmos, and must therefore be approached strategically. Your experience of time in Interstellar is hardly universal. It depends very much on where you are. While the film’s genre-entry depiction of the procession of time is intended as a rumination on relativity, black holes and the like, as »

Nolan Adapts Asmiov's "Foundation" For HBO

10 November 2014 3:25 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"Memento" and "Interstellar" scribe and "Person of Interest" creator Jonathan Nolan is set to write and produce "Foundation," an HBO and Warner Bros. TV series adaptation of Isaac Asimov's original novel trilogy of the same name.

Asimov penned the books back in the early 1950s, though followed it up with four more books in the 1980s. The original trilogy follows mathematician Hari Seldon, a man who has dedicated his life to developing psychohistory - a concept that is able to predict the future on a large scale.

When he foresees the imminent fall of the Galactic Empire and a dark age that will last thirty millenia, he sets out to create a foundation of talented artisans and engineers to preserve and expand on humanity's collective knowledge with the hope of establishing a new empire.

Sony Pictures acquired the rights several years ago to the property with Roland Emmerich attached to direct and produce. »

Entertainment Geekly Mailbag: 'Interstellar' rage

10 November 2014 3:16 PM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Christopher Nolan made Memento, but he also made The Dark Knight Rises. Great filmmakers can make bad movies: This is not a particularly complicated equation. And Nolan's new space melodrama Interstellar is not a particularly complicated movie. The science is elaborate and insane, but the emotional stakes are simple: Father loves daughter, father saves humanity. But Nolan is one of our plottiest filmmakers. (Most films have three acts; Nolan's movies usually have at least six, usually out of order and/or overlapping.) I attempted to explain the plot of Interstellar, but even I ran up against some impenetrable cosmo-logic.

Interstellar Co-Writer Jonah Nolan Developing Foundation TV Show for HBO

10 November 2014 2:37 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

While you’d be hard-pressed to find someone not familiar with Christopher Nolan’s work, his brother and frequent collaborator Jonathan Nolan is responsible for helping craft some of Christopher’s most beloved films.  He wrote the short story that served as the inspiration for Memento and co-wrote the screenplays for The PrestigeThe Dark Knight Rises, and the seminal The Dark Knight with his brother.  Most recently, Jonah collaborated on the screenplay for Christopher’s sci-fi epic Interstellar (which he initially wrote for Steven Spielberg to direct), and now he’s continuing on with the sci-fi theme in a TV series adaptation of Isaac Asimov’s book trilogy Foundation.  More after the jump.  Per The Wrap, Jonah Nolan is developing a Foundation TV series for HBO that he will write and produce.  While his brother keeps busy in the feature film world, Jonah has become well versed in the »

5 Things Christopher Nolan Has To Change Before His Next Movie

10 November 2014 12:43 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Christopher Nolan has made some absolutely stunning films over the course of his career, from Memento to The Dark Knight, and has proven himself to be one of the most creative storytellers currently working in the industry - but he has stirred up some debate with the release of Interstellar. The film has received the most mixed critical response of his career, and while it made a healthy $47 million in its first weekend, it was his first since Insomnia 12 years ago that didn.t open at number one. Of course, this isn.t a cataclysmic disaster, but it does have us thinking about how it should shape Nolan.s future and his next project. Looking back on the career of Christopher Nolan, weighing his greatest strengths and greatest weaknesses, as well as looking at his trends, we.ve come up with a list of five things that the filmmaker should »

/Film reader and artist Dogan Can Gundogdu created an infographic which visually explains the timeline of Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar.

Interstellar: 10 Big Questions You Still Have

10 November 2014 6:14 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros. Pictures/Paramount Pictures

Whenever there’s a new Christopher Nolan film out you know the closing credits aren’t the end of the experience. Dissection of the themes and theorising over its high concepts are all part of the fun. And that’s certainly the case with Interstellar, Nolan’s latest, which has set the internet alight over the past weekend, although quite in the way we’re accustomed to.

Unlike Inception or Memento, Interstellar’s story is tightly wrapped up by the end with little ambiguity, most of its overarching elements explained explicitly. But that doesn’t means there’s not some dangling questions that remain unanswered. Today we’re going to look at ten of those lingering musings about the film, whether it’s concepts shrouded in ambiguity or plot threads still dangling. Naturally spoilers abound from here on in.

One question on many people’s lips is that, »

10 Interstellar Theories That Are Totally Insane

10 November 2014 4:44 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros. Pictures/Paramount Pictures

Christopher Nolan films and insane theories go together like chocolate and peanut butter. It’s relatively decadent, and if you gorge yourself on it you’ll probably start to feel a bit queasy and regret it, but they’re fun and nigh-impossible to keep apart. There are people still cooking up different readings of Memento’s fractured murder mystery, Inception’s spinning top remains a source of ire for many a film nerd, and let’s not even get started on the version of The Dark Knight Rises where Batman is the villain.

With Interstellar the visionary director seems to almost be asking for crazy fan theories. Just flat-out inviting them, with all of its theoretical science leaving enough room for interpretation by armchair physicists and people who’ve watched too much Star Trek alike, that semi-cliffhanger ending giving plenty of room for imaginations to »

Second Opinion – Interstellar (2014)

9 November 2014 12:12 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Interstellar, 2014.

Directed by Christopher Nolan

Starring Matthew McConaughey, Wes Bentley, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, David Gyasi, Michael Caine, Topher Grace, Casey Affleck and Ellen Burstyn.

Synopsis:

A group of explorers make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage.

A quick note before I begin the review:

Regardless of what I or others may think about Interstellar, one thing will remain constant; you need to see the film in 70mm IMAX to truly experience the film as the director wanted it to be seen. The advent of digital screening may be, to some, an improvement over film projected at 24 Fps due to clarity unseen before, but nothing can match the beautiful grain and slight imperfections of watching a film. The detail is so rich, you cannot mistake it for anything else and, if for no other reason, »

‘Interstellar’ is Christopher Nolan’s most ambitious fantastic voyage

8 November 2014 6:32 PM, PST | BuzzFocus.com | See recent BuzzFocus.com news »

On one hand Interstellar is a post-apocalyptic film, as the landscape of a near futuristic Earth is brushed out onto a dry, barren canvas. Science and the unappreciated efforts of Nasa are seen as insignificant wastes of resources, newly marketed as a scam to the public. The state of the planet is at a critical level. Dust storms regularly fan across the globe, showering the land in dirt. Ecosystems have been ravaged and it appears as if humans are the only creatures left on Earth. Agriculture is the last asset and culture in the world, and one-by-one, crops are failing to grow due to blight. It is yet another bleak vision into the future if we stay the course. Interstellar is so much more though, because it is about space exploration, human nature, a healthy debate over proven science vs. other concepts like love, faith, and trust, as well as »
