    He's okay. I liked Inception, but the two Batman films were eh.

    I like him, the Batman movies are his only gems, however.

    I would say Love, but of course he can do wrong.

    The Batman films are really good fun, I highly enjoyed them.


    But if you haven't, do yourself a favour and watch Memento, The Prestige & Inception. All brilliant films. Highly invocative to the mind and masterfully structured. Great work.

    He's a hack, but I don't hate him. That said, I don't particularly like him, either. While the Batman films are all right, I don't care for what he's done to the Batman franchise. The Batman comics were accessible to kids, and the movies should be the same way. They're not, and that's not right.

    One thing I think that people don't seem to realise is that comic books were never -- and are not -- just for kids.

    Besides, those films for kids have already been made. Batman Forever, Batman & Robin, etc? Is it so bad that somebody wanted to make a more mature film based on the character? It is a "reboot", not a continuation in any form.

    Like, kind of, he's done some cool stuff, and some not so cool. More positive than negative, though.

    "Batman Begins" sucked, and "Inception" was rather...strange.

    Semi-hate. I loathe the Batman movies. Flat out can't stand them. I liked Memento and I loved Inception. I suppose that makes me middle of the pack in a general sense, but I really, really don't like the Batman movies.

    Mr. Nolan is one of the finest directors of his generation. Inception, The Dark Knight, Batman Begins, and Memento are all splendid films.

    Other: I really liked Batman Begins, not so much Dark Knight. Otherwise, I haven't seen much of his work.

    Enjoyed the first Batman- the second one was too much for me to stomach for the most part. I love The Prestige-- one of my favorite movies of all time, but haven't got around to watching Inception *diving to avoid the flung objects in my direction*. So I'm going for "like"

    I love Batman Begins and Dark Knight. The Prestige was one movie that made me think, and well...haven't seen Inception yet.

    I wanted to but DRL got in the way for that one.

    So I will go with I love him, and wanna see more!

    Wish he'd stop wasting his time on crappy superhero movies, actually.

    Creating Batman Begins and the continuation of that series has enabled him to garner the backing and freedom for films like Prestige and Inception.

    Of course, I have heard rumours about Nolan and a new Superman, which I assume is where your comment stems from ...

    But Zaz. Go watch Memento.

    Like. Memento and the Batman flicks were good, haven't watched Inception yet.
