‘The Dark Knight,’ for me, has the same problem that every other ‘Batman’ movie has. It’s not about Batman.

He has one of the best bad guy schemes.

I don’t want to be judged next to guys like Suge Knight. I want to be measured next to David Geffen, Irving Azoff, and Clive Davis. Whether I measure up or not, I let my record speak for me. That’s how I want to be judged – by what I’ve done, not by what people like Ice Cube and Dr. Dre have said about me.

‘The Dark Knight,’ ‘The Rocketeer’ and definitely the first ‘Superman’ movie by Richard Donner are the best. I tend to be softer in my judgment about what’s a bad movie – I don’t think anyone intends to make a bad movie, and sometimes it just doesn’t click for some reason.

‘The Dark Knight’ is a really good movie that reached both critics and mainstream audiences.

Chris Nolan went through Slamdance a year and a half after us, and he went on to direct ‘The Dark Knight.’ So the joke now is if you want to make superhero movies, that’s where you have to go.

Everybody‘s family plays them music, and my grandma used to play a lot of old-school stuff, like Ron Isley and Gladys Knight. Earth, Wind & Fire is the one I started paying attention to. My uncle introduced me to R&B, like Dru Hill, 112 and all those dudes.

I love ‘Gabriel Knight’ and will always be proud of it. Despite the fact that I’ve done many other things, it seems to be the one thing that people remember. I hopeGray Matter‘ is as memorable.
