    I finally watched Dark Knight Rises last night and it was pure and utter garbage.

    In fact, when I first heard Bane speak, I thought the (pirated) version I got was corrupted, and I went ahead and downloaded a BD rip. But nope. That's just how he talks.

    And the dialogue, holy Jesus, that dialogue! Bane is chocking some guy, and the guy goes "you're... you're evil". At which point Bane responds in his comical accent "necessary evil!". Oh really guy? Is "you're evil" a realistic line in this situation? Because it sounds like it was written for the one liner that followed. But that's not as bad as the supposedly dramatic scene where Alfred and Wayne part ways. The scene is edited into the film randomly, sandwiched in between two unrelated scenes. Alfred abruptly mentions something about how Batman should move on because his long-dead girlfriend moved on in a letter he burned. 10 seconds of funny face acting follows, and then he leaves. I actually spaced out before realizing the scene was important and I had to rewind.

    Also, Bane supposedly has an ideology or a philosophy or something, evidenced by the fact everyone keeps talking about what a believer he is. So, what is that philosophy exactly? With the Joker, he thought that morality can only exist in a cocoon of imposed order, and he wanted to spread chaos to bring out what he saw as people's true nature. A bit cliched, but it's something. So what's Bane's philosophy? He wants, um... I don't know? Kill people? Follow the orders of some girl he likes? Not the best justification for his followers zealotry and complete acceptance.

    Not to forget the ****ty technology. A hand-held EMP device that seems to work via magic. A clunky single-propeller bat-plane that can somehow dodge hellfire missiles. And they call the nuclear bomb a "neutron bomb", like some kind of campy mid 80s b-movie.

    So I did have a few laughs here and there, but a pretty painful 3 hours once its all said and done.

    Started off well. Good music for the 8mm video scenes. Was enjoying it until the kids started appearing around his house.

    Which Godfather does everyone prefer?
    The first, unless I'm watching the second. Both are fantastic.

    I agree with most of this. It's Nolan's worst movie, IMO.

    Yep. It's decent Halloween fun, not much more. The horror genre rarely lives up to its potential, and, at least in film, is often half serious and half a parody of itself.

    Looper is alright. It was an interesting premise, but the the route they took in the second half felt very much like a first draft to me; I'd say it feels like a non-sequitur.

    Haven't seen Taken 2, but I wasn't a big fan of the first. It got pretty terrible reviews. From what I understand, only the biggest fans of the first enjoyed the second. If that's you, then go for it.

    I did enjoy the first one, so ill have to check it out when it hits the dollar theaters. Looper as well. Being poor is fun.

    I watched Spider-Man today...for the third time. Guys, I think I'm in love with Andrew Garfield.

    Life of Pi - Thought I would hate it, but it was ok, I was moderately entertained the whole move.

    Silver Linings Playbook...not sure how I feel...Very good performance by Cooper and Lawrence too I suppose. Emotionally involving. Stimulating. Sort of rang too close to home in some ways for me. Maybe it shouldn't have, I don't know. I just couldn't stop thinking about **** after the movie. I recommend it though.

    The Amazing Spider Man

    My Review-

    It was pretty meh.... I'm glad Spidey's webbing didn't come out of his hand, and Dennis Leary did a good job. However, I still have a hard time watching mid-to-late twenty year olds act like they are still in high school.
