What? What are you talking about? It's girls and spaghetti. We love girls and spaghetti.

I haven't actually disliked any of them, though I haven't seen The Prestige. Even Insomnia works well enough.

To me this isn't even close, it's Memento. I loved The Prestige as well, and thought Insomnia and Batman Begins were decent, but Memento is just leagues ahead of all of them. In my mind this is like asking who the most talented member of Nirvana was.

"Don't Like" seemed too strong, so I voted "Memento" ... but I would have been really tempted by a "meh" option.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Nolan has yet to make me go gah gah over a film yet.

He doesn't make bad films, but when looking at those movies it is hard for me to say one is his best.

Mad props for his rampant use of Wally Pfister. Any time one Wally see's another get some serious good work it is a thrill*


Imagine our thrill at both Wally Pfister (DP on Dark Knight) and the pixar film Wall-E repping Wally's around the world in full force this summer.

Expect a ton of march babies next year to be Wallys... our brood GROWS!!!!

Didn't expect so much love for Batman Begins.

The Prestige has a brilliant visual style to it and I've always been fond of Bale and Jackman.
It has a haunting story that's rather well told. Yeah, The Prestige.

He has done that for me on most of his films.
I like all of them a lot, but I just adored The Prestige. One of my all-time favorites. Hands down.

Memento, because of Guy Pearce.
