I don't think he's pretentious, at least not intentionally. I think he's just in love with the visual aspect of film and believes that the narrative will be driven by that. That works sometimes, but not all the time.
And it certainly didn't work with The Tree of Life. In the past with most of his movies he's got the balance between visuals and narrative right. The Tree of Life is the movie where he truly was infatuated with how the movie looked rather than how the story is being told. I mean like there's a whole sequence about the birth of creation that feels so out of place with the rest of the movie.

Certainly this, he's an artist in the truest form. However his work is becoming more and more challenging as time passes.

Huge Ackman gave his absolute best performance in Les Mes and deserves the Oscar over DDL.

Taken 2 is better than Taken. (By not much)
Liked the one on one fight where Bryan nearly got his ass kicked. Also the little talk he gave to the villain at the end. Also more clever writing
