Cause I really dont like how Nolan cut the Batman films and Inception...but I love the visuals and what the actors did in them.
Why are you suggesting that Nolan cut his films? I mean of course, he was there in the editing room and it's almost certain he had a lot of thoughts about the editing of the movie, but he still had his own editor. Just like he always had his own cinematographer. So if you say that maybe the visual experience offered by Nolan's movies is mainly Pfister's desert, then you could also say that the editing of the Batman-movies and Inception was mainly the editor's desert (or fault, in your case), not Nolan's. On the other hand, I believe that Nolan has a voice in both departments of filmmaking: cinematography and editing, too. What I'm trying to say: you cannot separate Pfister's work from Nolan's, or Lee Smith's work from Nolan's. They work together, they think together. What you see on screen is the collective work of the director, the writer, the DOP, the editor. I don't think some could say that the cinematography is great SOLELY because of Pfister. If you know what I mean.
