OK, fanboys, we’re getting ready to dodge and duck and block your furious comments as we pit favorites Christopher Nolan and David Fincher against each other in our second director-focused episode of VS. Who is the better mind-bending auteur: The man who delivered the big WTFs with Memento and redefined the superhero movie with the Dark Knight Trilogy? Or the man who laid Mark Zuckerberg out on the table in one of the smartest and most enjoyable dramas of the last 20 years – and also gave us the iconic Fight Club? We’re comparing their performance on the Tomatometer and at the box office, and looking at their characters and biggest moments to decide who comes out on top of the modern directors’ heap.
Of course, if you don’t agree with our choice of winner, let us have it in the comments.
