Why Christopher Nolan's grim approach to Batman doesn't work for DC's more colourful superheroes.
For reasons that remain unclear, someone has decided to remake Christopher Nolan's iconic memory thriller.
Writer/director David S. Goyer talks Blade, Batman, and Man of Steel.
Interstellar is certainly an impressive cinematic achievement on the biggest possible scale, just far from a perfect film. The highly visual film has been given top notch treatment for this showcase Blu-ray.
Insomnia (Erik Skjoldbjaerg, 1997) – Though sadly overshadowed by the Al Pacino and Christopher Nolan American remake, Erik Skjoldbjaerg’s Insomnia remains one of the greatest thrillers of the 90s. While Skjoldbjaerg never quite managed to deliver an adequate follow up, his directorial debut was one of the most striking of his era. It’s a […]
Transcendence (Wally Pfister, 2014) – More than anything else, Transcendence is a lesson in how tone can kill a movie. The premise is goofy, the science is half-cocked, and the message is obvious.

On the other hand, it’s not hard to say that this third instalment with Christian Bale behind the cowl is the least of the franchise, but most of the problems this time our are fairly nitpicky in nature and come mostly when Nolan seemingly needs to force himself to get serious again when even the director seems like he just wants to have some actual fun for a change.
In honour of tickets for The Dark Knight Rises going on sale today, we talked to one of the handlers of the famed Tumbler (and it's little brother, The Batpod), a.k.a. Christopher Nolan's Batmobile.
