I've seen only a handful of Christopher Nolan films. This trilogy, Dunkirk and Prestige. I've liked all his films and I don't know anybody who actually dislikes them. My favourites are obviously the Dark Knight Trilogy because I'm a fan of Batman and superheroes in general. I'm not sure how or when I wanted to watch this trilogy but it was a few years ago and I had Begins on DVD so I watched it. I thought it was a perfect Batman movie and I still do to this day! Perfect length, never felt too long! #christianbale is the best #batman fuck Batfleck but I still like Keaton. I was happy this went to lesser known villains like Ra's (although forever confusing me of how to pronounce his name) and Scarecrow. Cillian Murphy is actually pretty good as Jonathan Crane. Knowing exactly when to be over the top but never really reaching it. Even in the #batmanarkham games he was all about insanity but he always seemed pretty calm and collective, even with the fact he isn't inhaling any toxin. I liked what I saw from Falcone and Maroni (Gotham S1 is my favourite for those gang families) and Katie Holmes' made up character wasn't great but she did her job and her character did hers, just not the best. I fucking lobed #liamneeson in this, Star Wars gave him tough shit but he is badass in this. The Head of the Demon was not disappointing at all. Michael Caine is a great Alfred, always nice to see him playing a father like figure. From what he got, Morgan did a fine job ss Lucius but to be honest I think he's overrated. He was good in Shawshank but like don't let that movies fame blind you from the fact he's not that great. The pacing actually worked surprisingly, Christopher Nolan can make it a bit confusing for the audience member at times, Inception being a prime example and Dunkirk with its different time zones, I actually liked it in this film. It gets on track eventually and it's even better when it does. I loved seeing Bruce being trained by the League it was super interesting and the League and Ra's still play a big enough part throughout the trilogy especially Rises. I'll definitely review the others but for now that's Batman Begins.
