Useless people who should be replaced by REAL talent.

There are millions of filmmakers out there that are better in every possible way than these worthless hacks.

1. Christopher Nolan

Writer | Inception

Best known for his cerebral, often nonlinear storytelling, acclaimed writer-director Christopher Nolan was born on July 30, 1970 in London, England. Over the course of 15 years of filmmaking, Nolan has gone from low-budget independent films to working on some of the biggest blockbusters ever made.

...

The Devil from Britain.

The most overexposed hack in film history. A hack who, because he works for a major studio, overshadows so many other amazingly talented filmmakers who deserve a spot in Hollywood.

The guy who was able to convince a lot of young and dumb people that dark, pretentious and emo = smart and intelligent.

The person responsible for the onslaught of dumb, moronic, pretentious comic book movies - see the last Batman flicks and especially the crap called Man of Steel - and the reason for the existence of truly the dumbest internet fanboys in human history. So not only he makes pretentious, emo crap that some people ACTUALLY think it's intelligent (ha-ha) but he's the MAIN reason for all these sad, lonely, uneducated internet fanboys who absolutely destroy the image of the serious people who consider themselves "movie fans".

Simply put Nolan is responsible for A LOT of bad things, cinema-wise. And the day he stops making movies will be a great, great, great day for all talented filmmakers and all fans of REAL movies.
