“I’ve got kids who like superheroes and they think the Batman films are boring and pretentious. They like things like The Avengers and Iron Man because they’re fun. It’s a wrong move to take a superhero and give it psychological realism. There is no psychological realism. He’s a bodybuilder who jumps off buildings. I’m sorry I feel really strongly about this.”

"Every now and then the guy jumps off the building on a rope, and they watch it and go, ‘Woo!’ Then they lose interest. To me, that’s a real major lack of judgment in Nolan, to go for superhero films. I feel this very strongly.”
“What he’s trying to be is some kind of modern [Stanley] Kubrick. And I think he’d be better off being a modern [Alfred] Hitchcock, basically. A maker of well-made films like Memento and The Prestige. And these blockbusters are just embarrassing, I think. I haven’t seen the new one yet.”

The only Nolan movies he admits he likes are Memento and The Prestige, referring to all of the others as “shallow and badly written” and “embarrassing”.
Jeez... I mean, what? I don't even know how to respond to comments as dumb as this.

Looks like the boogieman's uglier, deformed twin. Seriously, whoever invented mirrors would've reconsidered if they knew Christopher fucking Priest would one day exist.

Holy shit, I totally disagree with him but there is no need for you to insult him that way.

so this clown probably saw a couple of kids at the theatre who didn't care for the movie and he thinks those people represent the millions of others who saw the film and liked it lmfao
