The man who created The Dark Knight series is turning 47 today. Yes, it’s Christopher Nolan’s birthday. Nolan has not only given us the amazing Batman trilogy But, many other incredible movies like Inception, Interstellar and a lot more. While we anxiously wait for his Dunkirk 70mm, let’s celebrate his birthday with HookedUpon talking about the nine reasons why we should be thankful to him forever.

#9 For making us understand few terms

Christopher Nolan movies are amazing. They actually make us look inside our own life. His movies fall into two categories: The Truth Of Human Nature and Moral/ Philosophical Riddles. This is the common thing about his movies.

#8 For giving a perfect shot

Have you guys noticed that Christopher Nolan movies have a  repeated use of unusual shot: The roll, a camera movement in which camera does a barrel roll that turns everything in view on its side or if it keeps turning upside down? Nolan loves such shots and uses them on key moments to make it more attractive.

#7 Raises our Expectation

Christopher Nolan movies not only meet our expectations but also have set bar higher for other movies. When we feel that nothing could be better than a particular movie of his, he delivers another masterpiece.

#6 For taking us to another world

Nolan’s story-line is actually amazing and it takes you to another world but are realistic. His  movies are so real that we can even imagine and  empathize too with the story.

#5 For Bringing Batman In Real World

He brought Batman out of the comic books and put him in the real world. Unlike any other superhero flick, Nolan’s Dark Knight has been stripped off the unreal armor of superheroes and became a character of flesh and blood, ‘a hero we deserve’. And, we can’t be enough grateful for putting Christian Bale in that awesome Bat-suit.

#4 For Bringing Depth In Comic Characters

Not only the superhero, he presented the other characters in a new light too. His Joker had his own crazy, but unbeatable philosophy, he made the Catwoman more than a girl who fights wearing a black costume and gave us a glimpse of the woman behind the catty mask. Not only the characters of The Dark Knight series, all the characters he has created in his movies, are brilliantly sketched.

We’ll be always thankful to him for giving us the taste of the classic age of Hollywood.
