Inception – 2010 – Christopher Nolan

Indisputably well-produced but it’s nothing more than a solid action flick. Hailed as imaginative, it lacks honest creativity. Hailed as intellectual, it is mundane. Add to that wooden characters that aren’t interesting or convincing and it’s a bit of a dud for Nolan compared to his best movie yet…MementoBill Hill

The Dark Knight – 2008 – Christopher Nolan

Christian Bale as Batman, Heath Ledger as the Joker, Michael Caine as Alfred, Aaron Eckhart Harvey Dent/Two-Face; Gary Oldman as Commissioner Gordon, flawless. Maybe, maybe not, but a great action movie, with lovable rogues. Brian Murray

Having reinvented the Dark Knight with Batman Begins, director Christopher Nolan lets go of the reins somewhat with his follow up. Heath Ledger as the Joker is the definitive villain archetype. The action is excellent, when it comes, and while it is long it’s most definitely one you got to watch. JJ

In a word: overrated. The movie is well-produced; but the paltry subplots, laughable dialogue, and Batman’s voice (sounds like Freddy Kruger) are disappointing. Ledger was great but Oscar-worthy? There’s too much moralistic drivel to say this movie is really dark. Nonetheless, is a movie good just because it is dark? William Hilderbrandt

The Prestige – 2006 – Christopher Nolan

10m-1.jpgAn above average slice of Victorian pie. Rival magicians vie to create the ultimate magic trick, no holds barred. A lack of cohesiveness, with all involved appearing to aim for a different kind of movie, lets this otherwise good bit of fun down.
