Did you think The Hunger Games was slightly confusing? I didn’t, but a friend of mine sure did. I had read the book, so my mind filled in the gaps that the movie had left. And there were quite a few gaps, as CinemaSins has pointed out in their latest video.
A few days ago, CinemaSins released a YouTube clip called “Everything wrong with The Dark Knight Rises in 3 minutes or less.” CinemaSins took a good hard look at the movie Prometheus. Unsurprisingly, there was so much wrong with the Ridley Scott movie that it took over four minutes to describe it all.
Even though The Dark Knight Rises had some excellent performances and a great dramatic payoff, the movie had a few plot holes that were hard to overlook. Fans can either simmer in resentment or laugh about it. YouTuber CinemaSins’ video makes us laugh about it.
As we know from our Forbes Fictional 15 list of the richest fictional characters, Bruce Wayne is worth $6.9 billion, money that he inherited and grew. But Bruce Wayne, who midnights as Batman, has some rather opulent expenses that cut into his petty cash. According to Centives, the blog of economics students from Lehigh University, it costs big money to be the world’s greatest detective.
1960s television comedy Batman was a more innocent show than the rebooted Dark Knight series, which takes the phrase “dark and gritty” and stomps on it until it screams. In fact, the portrayals of the characters are so different that putting them in the same room would be ridiculous. Even hilarious. So AboveAverageNetwork decided to do just that.
The Dark Knight Rises won’t be hitting theaters until July 2o, 2012, which gives us over two weeks of Batman-obsessed anticipation to work through. We can twiddle our thumbs or we can pass the time (336 hours, but hey, who’s counting) celebrating our Batmania. I know what I’ll be doing:
Gary Oldman is an excellent actor who has deserved each and every one of his awards. And with dozens of movies, such as Rosenkrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead and a few Harry Potter films, under his belt, he’s had to memorize approximately ten bazillion of lines of dialog. But his memory failed him a few months ago, when he misplaced his script for The Dark Knight Rises.
