Christopher Nolan is one of the greatest modern filmmakers in all of cinema. His movies are often personal, cerebral, non-linear, and confusing as hell. His new movie, Tenet (or TENET ) is coming out soon to theaters as long as everyone agrees to watch the movie one-person-in-the-theater at a time.
Before Tenet!!! is released, let’s take a look at Christopher Nolan’s best five movies according to me. Also, if you click on the streamy movie links in the list, I’ll earn some commission from Amazon that I can use to buy large bags of Haribo™ gummy bears. Thank you in advance for the gummy bears:
The Prestige is a movie about two 19th century magicians trying to out magician each other. The movie stars Christian Bale and Hugh Jackman. I remember watching this movie at a friend’s house and eating tater tots. Like, a massive pile of tater tots doused with Lawry’s seasoning salt. Then when David Bowie appeared as Nikola Tesla, I said to my friends, “more like Nikola Totsa!” and everyone laughed. In retrospect, it wasn’t that funny. But, I bet David Bowie would’ve laughed. And eaten tater tots. R.I.P. to that cool dude.

Inception is a movie about a bunch of thieves who try to enter people’s subconscious to steal information. The movie stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tom Hardy, and a bunch of other all stars. When I was watching this movie I was trying to eat some fish tacos from the local taco truck. Then the spinning room fight scene started and I got really dizzy. I started vomiting profusely all over my No Fear™ shirt as Joseph Gordon-Levitt was fighting those thugs. The shirt was ruined. Needless to say, Joseph Gordon-Levitt owes me a new No Fear™ t-shirt. Size Large. Color heather grey.

Batman Begins is a Batman reboot where Bruce Wayne starts to learn how to fight crime in Gotham City. The movie stars Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman and Katie Holmes’ perky nips. I was eating an entire large pizza when this movie started. But then I was so enthralled by the scene where Bruce gets out of bed and immediately starts doing push-ups. So I was all pumped and started doing push-ups, but I started vomiting profusely all over my carpet. Needless to say, somebody needs to clean up my carpet because that pepperoni puke stain has been there for years hint hint Christopher Nolan.

Interstellar is a sci-fi movie where astronauts try to find a hospitable planet for humanity by traveling through wormholes. The movie stars Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, and Jessica Chastain. Before I started watching this movie, I made a huge steak dinner with sides of potatoes, vegetables, fruit parfait, and some ice cold milk. But, then the movie shows all this blight and people suffering and I felt really bad that I made this huge dinner. I mean, I still finished the dinner, but I felt kind of guilty about it. Then I made some chocolate milk after the movie and watched some cartoons so I forgot what happened.

The Dark Knight
The Dark Knight is also a Batman movie, but now Bruce Wayne wants to stop fighting crime, but has to contend with the villainous Joker. This is one of the best movies ever made so you should go watch it immediately. It stars Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Heath Ledger, Gary Oldman, Aaron Eckhart, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and Morgan Freeman. I remember watching this movie in the theater while eating a huge tub of popcorn. Then during the intense Joker scenes I kept covering my eyes with my buttery hands. By the end of the movie my eyes were watering really bad because of all the butter and salt in them. But as the movie ended, people thought I was crying and they hugged me a lot. I didn’t tell them the truth. I didn’t want the hugs to stop.
