I'm not really a Christopher Nolan fan.

Christopher Priest? Is that the same guy that was writing Marvel's Black Panther before? The creator of my favorite buddy duo comicbook ever, Quantum and Woody? I hope so. I like Nolan and, if it's him, Priest. Good cast, too. I'm intrigued.

Yeah, don't get me wrong I knew not liking Nolan wouldn't be a popular stance when I posted it.

For me, his movies have appealed to me at a declining rate upon each release. I went to see Insomnia in the theatres expecting too much. It was a fine film on its own.
To me Batman Begins was a huge let down. Nothing on Nolan's part really. Living with two guys telling me this was the best movie ever made and not being a Batman fan cause me to be let down. I didn't find the movie to be anything special.

So even though I own 3 of Nolan's films I don't see myself getting jacked about his next movie.

This shouldn't really affect whether you see the film or not. I mean, if you checked out the trailer I'd imagine you'd want to see it. Both Jackman and Bale are great actors, and I'm pretty sure they're going to both light up the screen with what they decide to bring into perspective in terms of their respective roles.

The acting looks great and the film looks fine. The whole thing just isn't me. For some reason I can't get into movies that are set pre-WWII. Just something weird about my taste that I can't explain.
