Seinfeld’s Nemesis is New York’s Reckoning

Credit for this photo goes to the people at Vulture.com and their article “See How A Bane Mask Makes Any Villain Look Scarier.” Turns out, the Dark Knight’s #1 enemy in 2012 is The Dark Wayne Knight aka Newman on Seinfeld.

Other mask memes include Meryl Streep in The Devil Wears PradaDownton Abbey’s maid O’Brien, and the dreaded Hamburglar.

When I saw Batman I felt like Tom Hardy was competing with Christian Bale for weirdest vocal alteration. Hardy kind of sounded like a leprechaun with really low-hanging balls and Bale was just hobbling around in a hole for most of the movie.  Continue reading “Seinfeld’s Nemesis is New York’s Reckoning”

Christopher Nolan Talks Colorado Shooting

Christopher Nolan released a statement through his publicist in L.A. (he’s a dual citizen of the UK and U.S.) addressing the shooting in Colorado that happened during a showing of his movie, The Dark Knight Rises. The gunman, who reportedly referred to himself as “The Joker” to the police after his arrest, opened fire on a theater that was a mere 21 miles from Columbine high school. Nolan wrote:

“Speaking on behalf of the cast and crew of ‘The Dark Knight Rises,’ I would like to express our profound sorrow at the senseless tragedy that has befallen the entire Aurora community. I would not presume to know anything about the victims of the shooting but that they were there last night to watch a movie.  Continue reading “Christopher Nolan Talks Colorado Shooting”

Rush Limbaugh Musings: ‘The Dark Knight Lights Up’ Is One Of Dem Conspiracy Thingys!

Rush Limbaugh offered up his opinion on The Dark Knight Rises during his thought-provoking radio show Tuesday morning.

Apparently the movie, which he refers to as “The Dark Knight Lights Up,” is an intricate conspiracy to make Mitt Romney look bad worse.

“Have you heard this new movie, the Batman movie, what is it, The Dark Knight Lights Up or whatever the name is. That’s right, Dark Knight Rises. Lights Up, same thing. Do you know the name of the villain in this movie? Bane. The villain in The Dark Knight Rises is named Bane, B-a-n-e.”

What is the name of the venture capital firm that Romney ran and around which there’s now this make-believe controversy? Bain.”  Continue reading “Rush Limbaugh Musings: ‘The Dark Knight Lights Up’ Is One Of Dem Conspiracy Thingys!”

Can ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ Win Best Picture?

Christopher Nolan’s highly anticipated conclusion to Batman Begins and The Dark Knight was screened for critics on July 6. Not only did it received a standing ovation, one reviewer Tweeted words he’d heard after that have already substantially added to the hype.

A prediction that The Dark Knight Rises would not only be nominated for an Academy Award, but that it should win, “If this does not break the mold and win Best Picture, no comic book movie ever will #TDKR.”

Tom McAuliffe wrote that it was a “9 out of 10” for him and elaborated his praise, saying it was better than The Dark Knight, which received four stars from Roger Ebert (he famous for giving everything three) and won Heath Ledger a posthumous best actor Oscar.  Continue reading “Can ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ Win Best Picture?”

Trailer: ‘The Dark Knight Rises’

 “You think this can last. There’s a storm coming, Mr. Wayne. You and your friends better batten down the hatches, cause when it hits, you’re all gonna wonder how you ever thought you could live so large and leave so little for the rest of us.”

…This is Anne Hathaway’s warning to Batman in the new Dark Knight Rises trailer, and oh how chilling it sounds during a montage of Bane about to kill…a bunch of Football players? God I wish it was the Broncos game. TEBOW VS. BANE!

New ‘Amazing Spider-Man’ And ‘Dark Knight Rises’ Posters

Movie posters for The Amazing Spider-Man graced the interwebnet several days ago, with a Bane-centric one for The Dark Knight Rises appearing just a day later, probably a hype response pissing contest of some kind.

I’m gonna have to say that the Spider-Man poster is a little more enticing/graphically interesting. Like everyone else, I’m still more excited about Batman. Christopher Nolan’s third and final film in the franchise can’t disappoint.

Since When Does Batman Sweat Outside His Suit?

The third set of stills from The Dark Knight Rises have come out and I’m a little curious about one picture in particular, where an assistant/Nolan lackey is dabbing Batman’s head with a cloth.

Is the suit sweating? Was there a stain on it? Was it not shiny enough?

Whatever the reason, it looks like a waste of time. You know what DOESN’T look like a waste of time? This epic fight scene between Baleman and Bane (Tom Hardy) near the Occupy Wall Street riots!

Government bailouts? BIFF. No health insurance? BAM. Student loans? THWACK. Damp tent? POW.

I’d really like to see that deep-voiced nutsack Batman taken down a notch for screwing over America/Gotham and letting Rachel Dawes die.

On a random note, the more I see Anne Hathaway in that Star Fleet costume the more I wish someone would put her in a bag and toss her in a lake. (Catwoman not Anne, they’re different, right?)
