The Dark Knight should have, at the very least, been nominated for best picture, IMO.

Not going to lie, I am not looking forward to this movie nearly as much as I did The Dark Knight. First off there isn’t that pre-movie buzz about Ledgers acting performance(or any acting performance, with the TDK it was months in advance). Secondly Bane and Catwoman suck as villains. I am sure Nolan will do a great job selling them,but to me they just don’t have that oooh factor. Also I have to say the trailers are pretty meh. IMO his movies aren’t re-watchable either. They are great movies for one time viewing but they don’t hold up that well for my tastes.

Plenty of great reasons for praising Nolan, but the essayist missed many more:

Following
Memento
Insomnia
The Prestige
