    Thumbs up So I recently rewatched the Nolan Batman movies...

    You know when you haven't watched something in a long time?

    Really enjoyed watching them again

    Really, really good movies, especially compared to the other comic book movies these days


    I could try to break it down, but I think it just comes down to having a top 5 director


    You see, Nolan was early in his career -- he wanted to make Inception, and pursue his own original films...

    But he didn't have the rep to his name yet

    So he did Batman to build his name, his brand


    I watched all of the special features/behind the scenes too...

    What stuck out about Nolan, is his philosophy of prioritizing real sets, and real stunts.

    He uses CGI finitely, to touch up and enhance.

    So many epic scenes, like the swat van getting knocked into the river, or the truck flipping..

    All real, all live stunts.

    The Dark Knight is the GOAT superhero movie

    Does anyone actually rewatch those shitty marvel movies outside of the theatre?

    You can watch those Nolan Batman's and they are still a masterpiece today.

    Its the best ever

    I generally hate super hero movies but the Batman trilogy was different. Not goofy or tacky in any way. Just flat out good.

    It's apples and oranges. Nolan's films are more based on realism, and are comptenpary. They are very well written for the most part and are consistentant. The MCU movies are more campy and comic-book-like.

    While I've a Batman fan through-and-through and always have been. the Portals scene, Cap wielding Mjolnir and Tony dying from Endgame is what movies are about. Withing 5 to 10 mins you go from being anxious, to being pumped, to sobbing almost because you realize your connection with a character you didn't know you had.

    I won't lie...when Tony dies and his arc reactor light goes out. I almost sobbed.

    The problem with Endgame is that it's a 40 minute fight of Thanos vs 1-2 characters kinda doing something, and then basically a jerkoff section one after the other of every MCU hero doing something vs hundreds of nameless.. let me rephrase, worthless villains. For me, it was just dumb action blockbuster segments.. but the Cap and in particular Tony part were pretty damn impactful. I still think Avengers 3: Part I is a noticeably better movie.

    Overall I agree. Infinity War as a better movie, but Endgame had a higher apex for me.

    The Dark Knight trilogy is the best series since The Godfather trilogy.

    Comparing Nolan's Dark Knight movies to the MCU is a non-starter, like comparing Apocalyse Now to Ghostbusters. Even though its all comic book source material, the makers of those films are trying to do completely different things.
