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.
#3 For Bringing Back The Classic Hollywood Era
Nolan made his directional debut with Following, a neo-noir thriller and went on delivering masterpieces like The Prestige, Insomnia, Memento that reminds us of classic thriller movies by the legendary Alfred Hitchcock. We’ll be always thankful to him for giving us the taste of the classic age of Hollywood.
#2 For Rewarding Us With Amazing Sci-Fi Movies
None but Christopher Nolan can give us amazing sci-fi movies likes Interstellar and Inception that redefine the pre-determined notion of science fiction. The movies go ahead of special effects and visualization with the wonderful stories and groundbreaking execution. His films are not only soothing to eyes, but they make long lasting effects on the viewers.
#1 For Owning Such A Brilliant Mind
Above everything, we will be forever indebted to him for possessing such a brilliant mind, which gave us movies like The Dark Knight Trilogy, Prestige, Interstellar, Inception and others. On the day of his birthday, we thank the legendary actor in advance for all the movies that are yet to come from his brilliant mind.
