    Yes

    And ah, would it be too much to ask for a small review in the rate thread in regards to the batman films ?

    So you've based this opinion on two films that Nolan is a better filmmaker than Kubrick, who's made some of the most lauded films of the 20th century?

    Well, Nolan's work certainly can't compare with the most lauded films of the 19th century.

    I'm not a big Kubrick fan, so there are quite a few directors I'd vote for over him. But as I've said before, I don't think it matters when the director started directing or if they only have 5 films compared the other directors 50, if they're good - they're good!

    I was just about to flip out from excitement, and then I realized that this means I'll have to choose between Hitchcock and Nolan.

    It's like that time when I was little and a mean kid in class asked me whether I would save my mom or my dad if they were tied to train tracks and I only had time to save one of them and he told me if I didn't answer then ghosts would haunt me for the next 14 years of my life.
    I had my infatuations, but we both know in our hearts who is the sole love of my short, bright life.

    Wow, I was only thinking of it like picking between chocolate and vanilla.
    Please, take your time... it sounds like you've already had enough trauma.

    I am kinda shocked. I do not consider Nolan fit for the finals by any means, say sorry. I have already posted about it in the Final thread.

    This only makes my final choice -Hitchcock/Nolan- so much easier.
    And we all know how that one's going to end!

    I totally forgot about this round and definitely thought Kubrick would win, but am happy he didn't.

    Don't try to predict the outcome of the finals, because "you want to be...fooled."
    With one chance to go back...
    who would you save?
