Where Does ‘TENET’ Rank Among the Christopher Nolan Movies I’ve Seen?

I can proudly say that I have seen every major Christopher Nolan movie and each film has been one to remember. From his all-time great Batman trilogy to what I feel is, next to 2001: A Space Odyssey, the greatest space movie of all time, Interstellar, his movies are impactful and will leave you thinking about them long after seeing them.

TENET is no exception. It’s been nearly a week since I watched his latest mind-boggling feat in cinema and as I see tv spots of Nolan’s newest excuse to go to the movies I can’t help feeling a swell of happiness knowing that I was able to witness the incredible film in a movie theater.

But, despite my enjoyment of the movie, where do I rank it among Nolan’s films? Let’s find out, shall we?

1. The Dark Knight

This is what I would call literal perfection. His first movie featuring the dark knight was the best Batman film ever made with an origin story that felt dark, grounded, gritty, and a far-cry better than Batman from 1989.

His second film in the trilogy would feature a story that was not only brilliant developed but also boded the greatest comic book movie villain onscreen appearance of all time. Heath Ledger’s Joker was so haunting and downright unforgettable that the actor would receive a posthumous Oscar for his role, and deservedly so.

I cannot get enough of this movie.

Throwback Friday: Ranking All of the Christopher Nolan Movies I’ve Seen; from least Favorite to Favorite

Considering that TENET‘s official trailer has just come out, here’s my ranking of every Nolan movie that I’ve seen. Enjoy!

Christopher Nolan is one of my favorite director/writers in Hollywood. His movies have fascinated me over the years with their bold storytelling, trippy concepts, and dazzling plot twists that have managed to make each of his films that I have seen not only extremely enjoyable but very memorable as well.

7. The Dark Knight Rises

I love The Dark Knight trilogy. They are easily some of the best superhero movies ever made with complex storylines and fascinating characters played by brilliant actors. Unfortunately, The Dark Knight Rises was a bit too eloquent for its own good. With a two hour and forty-four-minute runtime, this film drags along, slowly building up to a mediocre final confrontation between the good guys versus the bad guys. While the movie is still better than most films it’s nowhere near as good as its two predecessors or the other Christopher Nolan movies. Hence, it’s my least favorite.

A Movie Ranking: Cillian Murphy

Cillian Murphy is no Tom Cruise or Brad Pitt nor is he even the likes of Channing Tatum or Jeremy Renner but he is one of Christopher Nolan’s favorite actors to work with and has utilized him in ways that have made him, as a Nolan fan, ultimately unforgettable. Today, I wanted to highlight him for this week’s A Movie Ranking. Enjoy!

5. The Dark Knight Rises

Morgan Freeman, Gary Oldman, Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Matthew Modine, Anne Hathaway, Alon Aboutboul, Marion Cotillard, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Daniel Sunjata in The Dark Knight Rises (2012)

In Christopher Nolan’s Batman movies Cillian Murphy plays Dr. Jonathan Crane/Scarecrow throughout the trilogy. In The Dark Knight Rises, he plays a small role as a judge under Bane’s cruel rule helping to prosecute Gotham’s righteous citizens. One of my favorite moments in the film is when he prosecutes one such Gothamite to exile instead of death but he exiles him by making him cross the treacherous frozen river. So, in actuality, he still charges him with death. Continue reading A Movie Ranking: Cillian Murphy

Looking Back: The Movies I’ve Seen of 2017; Ranked from Worst to Best

Two years ago it was a year full of movies, good and bad. So, with no further delay, here’s my list. Enjoy!

16. The Mummy

When I heard they were remaking The Mummy I was kind of skeptical at first but then I heard that Tom Cruise was playing the lead and I got excited. Tom Cruise has been making fantastic movies for decades. There was no way he could star in a film about some explorers who run into real-life mummies and the movie end up becoming a fail. How terribly wrong I was. From the first trailer, I saw I knew this film wasn’t going to be as good as I had hoped but this movie wasn’t just boring or corny. It was poorly written, the plot was terrible, and it was painful watching Tom Cruise and Russel Crowe, who are both great actors, stoop down to the level of this horrid film.

I was hoping I was going to enjoy this movie but I ended up disliking nearly everything about it. This is undoubtedly the worst movie I’ve seen this year.

A Movie Ranking: Tom Hardy

Tom Hardy has grown to be one of my favorite actors of all time. His nuanced performances allow him to stick out as he brings a certain depth to every character I’ve seen him play. Over the years, I have discovered that I have seen more films with him than I first imagined, making him the perfect topic for this week’s A Movie Ranking. Enjoy!

6. Venom

Tom Hardy in Venom (2018)

Venom is the worst movie I’ve seen Tom Hardy play in and easily my least favorite work of his. The accent doesn’t come off naturally nor does his performance as Eddie Brock. The film is also pretty bad. I will say this though, in better hands the movie would’ve been much better.

We’ll see how Venom 2 handles Eddie/Venom’s story in a more concise fashion (even though the prospect of Woody Harrelson as Carnage seems pretty cornballs.) Continue reading A Movie Ranking: Tom Hardy

What’s Your Favorite Christopher Nolan Movie?

As you may know, Christopher Nolan is an incredible filmmaker who doesn’t just make movies that perform well at the box-office. Instead, he makes movies that intend to leave you stunned and truly appreciative of the outstanding work he has just displayed on the big screen. I didn’t know much about Christopher Nolan until I saw Interstellar. After that, I became obsessed with his work. I have watched most of his films and have loved every single one of them. Christopher Nolan still hasn’t won an Oscar but he has been nominated five times for one. And honestly, nearly all the movies he has made deserves an Oscar nod.

For this week’s Who’s Your Favorite? I thought it would be perfect to make this amazing director the topic for today. Here’s the list of his best movies. Continue reading What’s Your Favorite Christopher Nolan Movie?
