It’s “Time to Vote Tuesday!” 96

Today is Tuesday! and if you’ve been coming here for any length of time, you know that, for most people Tuesday is just the day after Monday, but for you it means that “Time to Vote Tuesday” is here!! YES!!!

What is “Time to Vote Tuesday”?:

“Time to Vote Tuesday” is the session of fun weekly polls which spark thought, debate, and intrigue! Each poll closes in a week with results posted on the following ‘TVT’!

Last week’s poll, Choosy With Trilogies has now closed with 75 votes. WOW! Be sure to visit and see which movie trilogy is ranked #1 among the voters HERE. One trilogy ended up with 0 votes even!

I wish to thank you everyone that voted in last week’s polls, shared it with others, and made it fun with your comments!

In this edition of ‘TVT’ this week’s poll, entitled “In Nolan We Trust”, takes a look at the formidable director Christopher Nolan’s career.

With 5 out of his 7 full-length feature films currently on IMDB’s Top 250 films of all time, director Christopher Nolan’s following exploded exponentially after Batman Begins brought a whole new amount of fans to the Batman franchise. But Nolan, while known for Batman, has done other films that also have impressively succeeded. While looking at his filmography, I was realizing that amount of sheer talent that Nolan surrounds himself with and chooses to involve in his films.

Take a look at just the actors that he has worked with in 7 films (not even counting the soon to be released The Dark Knight Rises):

Leonardo DiCaprio, Christian Bale, Morgan Freeman, Heath Ledger, Marion Cotillard, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ken Watanabe, Ellen Page, Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, Katie Holmes, Tom Wilkinson, Michael Caine, Aaron Eckhart, Gary Oldman, Pete Postlethwaite, Hugh Jackman, Scarlett Johansson, Robin Williams, Hilary Swank, Al Pacino, Carrie-Anne Moss, Guy Pearce, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and many more. WOW!

Nominated for 4 Oscars, but still waiting to receive one (Was snobbed at the 83rd Academy Awards and received no nomination for best director for Inception), Nolan presses on, determined to bring great films full of character and intrigue.

Known for working with a lot of the same characters and with family members (his wife and brother often work on screenplay and more with him), Christopher Nolan continues to impress. Check out this bit of trivia I found over at IMDB’s page on Nolan:

Following Insomnia, his next project was going to be a Howard Hughes biopic starring Jim Carrey. Nolan had the screenplay written (calling it “one of the best things I’ve ever written”), but once it became apparent Martin Scorsese was making his own Hughes biopic The Aviator (2004), Nolan reluctantly tabled his script and took up directing Batman Begins (2005).

Wow. I’d love to see THAT movie!

Well, today’s poll may not be all too easy for you. Christopher Nolan is one of my favorite directors, and, today, I want to know from you:

Whew, okay, you made your choice. The torture is over! 🙂 Thanks for voting!

The poll closes on 5-1-12 and the results will post on next week’s “Time to Vote Tuesday!” 

Thanks for reading! Happy Watching!

  1. Nice poll T, it’s down to the two Batman films for me but I picked Batman Begins. I’m curious how TDKR will stack up with the first two!

    P.S. I’ll also have a TDKR/Avengers-related post coming shortly 😉


  2. It’s got to be The Dark Knight simply because I’m a huge Batman fan and he finally put a convincing and accurate Batman on the screen. It was a close pick with Inception which seems to be the best, original movie I’ve seen in a long while.


  3. Love his Batman films and I would’ve voted for The Dark Knight but the ferry sequence in that film really bugged the heck out of me so I went with Memento. Batman Begins great but it also had a few sequences that bugged me.

    Can’t wait for The Dark Knight Rises and hopefully he’ll jump back into developing The Prisoner for the big screen again.


  4. Decided to go for Inception. But it was tough. I think Dark Knight is an amazing film. Chris Nolan brought everything from Begins and just loaded it up even more. While it’s a universe he has shaped into his own vision, it’s not something he created as such. (My logic defies logic!)

    Went for Inception as it was a completely original concept. He took what he’s learnt in Memento, Prestige, Begins and Dark Knight and created an impeccable sci-fi flick with a huge heart.
