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?

Who’s Your Favorite Movie Director?

What is it that makes us love a movie? There are so many answers to that simple question. One of the staples of a film, however, is the movie’s director. There are thousands of directors around the world but there are those certain directors whose work you recognize immediately. I love movie directors. Their distinct take on filmmaking is fascinating and can help elevate a film from good to great.

And that’s why I wanted to make this the topic of this week’s Who’s Your Favorite? So, who’s your favorite movie director?

For me, my favorite director of all time is undoubtedly Christopher Nolan.

From his work on The Prestige,

to his outstanding vision for The Dark Knight, Christopher Nolan is a genius of filmmaking. His directorial prowess is rather evident with all of his movies and whenever I see his name next to a film I can’t wait to watch it.

There are, of course, other directors that I can name off of the top of my head that I think is incredible. Steven Spielberg, for one, Ridley Scott, James Cameron, the Coen Brothers; these are directors with specific points of vision that turn the films they help create into utter masterpieces.

Without directors, movies would be bland portraits of art but with them at the helm films can help transport us to a fictional world that captivates our attention for hours on end. And that’s why I love movies.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day. May the Force be with you.

 

What’s Your Favorite Animated Disney Classic?

Disney movies. They are some of my favorite movies to watch. Between the lovable songs and the heartfelt stories, these films have managed to bring me joy since I was a child. But, I’m not the only one. There are millions of people around the world who love Disney movies and that’s why I thought this would be a fun topic for this week. Enjoy!

(I will be listing the most popular Disney movies of the 20th century while films like FrozenThe Incredibles, and so forth will not be on this list, but I will consider them as honorable mentions.)

Pocahontas

Pocahontas is the story of a group of English settlers who come to America and, of course, one of the settlers by the name of Captain John Smith runs into the ethereally beautiful Pocahontas. This is the inspiring tale of love and how it can build bridges between people who would otherwise be enemies, which is always a beautiful thing to see.

‘Aquaman’ or ‘Wonder Woman’: Which Movie Is Your Favorite?

Last Tuesday Aquaman became available to buy on Blu-Ray and because I loved the film I totally wanted to buy it. And I did. I’ve watched the film three times since Tuesday and I totally wanted to make it the subject for today’s Who’s Your Favorite? 

Both Aquaman and Wonder Woman are the only movies in the current DC Universe that are certified fresh on Rotten Tomatoes and they have both received wide-acclaim from critics and casual movie viewers alike.

Both films were also presented as origin stories of sorts with each character making their DC Universe debut in Batman vs. Superman. So, on that note, here is a deeper look into each film.

Wonder Woman and Aquaman

Diana Prince, the main antagonist of Wonder Woman, is a powerful heroine whose view of the world of man was naive. She thought the evil that corrupted men’s hearts was only produced by Ares’ tampering but she soon learned that man was easily corruptible and flawed. She almost gave up on mankind but she discovered that yes, humans are flawed, but there is beauty in their imperfections and that there are good people who need her protection. She would end up defeating Ares with love and made it her mission to continue protecting the world by any means necessary from those with evil intentions.

Aquaman is a man born of two worlds; the Land and the Sea. His half-Atlantean roots made him feel that he was unworthy to become King of Atlantis and so he chose to run away from his destiny. But when the time came for a king to be crowned in order to save billions of lives from Orm’s diabolical plan he learned that he was greater than he could possibly have imagined and that he truly was worthy of being a king.

DC Comics or Marvel: Which Franchise Is Your Favorite?

Superhero movies. They have become an expected delight to look forward to every year. And the two arbitrators behind this movement is DC Comics and Marvel. For decades these franchises have released films that have inspired generations of fans and brought joy to millions and they are continuing to do so. In just a little over a month, Captain Marvel will be hitting theaters and there will surely be plenty of individuals, including me, rolling into theaters to see it. And that’s why I wanted to make this the topic of this week’s segment of Who’s Your Favorite? Enjoy!

DC Comics

When I think of DC Comics the first superhero that comes to mind is Batman but before Michael Keaton made Batman cool in the late 1980s’ there was Christopher Reeves’ iconic portrayal of Superman. I’ve seen Superman maybe once or twice in my younger years and while I don’t remember the film very much I still can grasp in the recesses of my brain the magic of the movie. Specifically, the scene when Superman–to bring Lois Lane back to life–uses his incredible ability to turn back time by flying around the Earth multiple times. You could say my mind was blown!
