I got what he was saying. In some aspects it is. He's capable of much more than Batman. I do like his Batman films, but I'd love to see him go back to more original projects.
The Dark Knight is one of the best movies of the past decade.



Everything doesn't have to be original.

Obviously but at the same time ppl are like well he's getting snubbed for this and that. He won't win anything non technical w/ Batman. The Dark Knight isn't even Nolan's best movie.

Obviously The Dark Knight isn't Nolan's best movie. Also, I hardly believe he is anticipating getting a bunch of awards with the Batman movies. I don't see how him making movies not aimed at winning awards is a waste of talent, though.

Of course he's not anticipating winning a bunch of awards w/ the Batman franchise which actually feeds into my point. He's capable of more than Batman, its true (Memento, The Prestige, Inception, etc...) and I'm sure he knows that. So, yes in some cases its a waste of talent. Its not about awards its about making original films. Saying that everything doesn't have to be original about a director like Nolan is like a slap in the face. Why would good directors want to do things that have already been done? Why do you think he happy he finally got to do Inception? I'm actually glad he did the Batman films because the studio knows whatever original projects he decides to do in the future he can. They'll back him up because he made them a lot of money.

Nolan wants to make entertaining films first and foremost, in my opinion. Obviously he wants some awards along the line, but I see nothing wrong with him just making movies that are entertaining every now and again. Thats hardly a waste of talent, in my opinion. Not sure how thats a slap in the face to a guy like Nolan. Like I said, The Dark Knight was a GREAT movie, far from a waste of talent. I've been a fan of Nolans for YEARS, but he gained a s**tload of new fans from that movie, I'd be willing to bet. That's actually the exact opposite of a waste of talent.

He's actually already said he loves when he can make his own original projects. Inception was his own original project. He worked on that script for about 10 years. The studio signed him for the Batman films. After the 2 films he was able to work on Inception the studio gave him his blessing. I don't know how many times I have to explain this concept. I'm not saying its a complete waste of talent. I'm saying he's capable of more. Of course he gained more fans , its Batman. I'm sure Tim Burton gained more fans off his version as well. Directors can gain fans left and right w/ whatever they put out. The Dark Knight was a good movie, I agree, but its a STUDIO project. Am I anticipating The Dark Knight Rises? Yup but I'm also eager to see his future projects outside of Batman. I'm willing to bet in the next 10 years he makes a better film than The Dark Knight and maybe even his best film. If you don't think he will then he pretty much wasted all his talents w/ Batman :(. That last line was joke but Nolan's best has still yet to come. He'll be directing films for the next 10, 20+ years.

Fincher and "The Social Network" got robbed...

"The Kings Speech" was nothing more than a HBO movie, sh!t sucked... And the Wienstein's are now responsible for the 4 worst Best Picture Winners of all time(Shakespeare in Love, English Patient, Chicago, and now Kings Speech).

The Academy once again showed how totally out of touch it was.

No suprise.
