Default Re: Favourite batman director

Nolan's storytelling and ability to weave in immense amounts of depth are stunningly genius. I never stop finding new things. New connections, new references, more richness and things to smile about or be awed by.

Nolan didn't get some things 'right', as far as my ideal version of Batman goes, but he more than makes up for it in other ways.

Burton does get some of the things right that I felt Nolan missed, but Burton had plenty of flaws in other areas as well, and ultimately, while I definitely love his interpretation for it's pluses, I find it less satisfying by comparison, and that it has less philosophical gravity.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying it's bad. I'm saying it's great, but Nolan trumps it.

(PS - I actually enjoyed a couple of aspects of the Schumacher movies too, even though they're a mess. Everything deserves fair credit. )

Why do we fall?
