Another theater shooter.

When will the madness end?

James Holmes is a dupe who got selected for this assignment, fed dangerous neural drugs at Colo Med School and set loose.

The real domestic terrorists are the Mainstream Media.

We went to see it Saturday night and we were surprised at how hard it was to get a ticket. We went to the big AMC in Alexandria VA that had four shows between 8 and 9pm. Got there at 8, all four sold out. We bought two for the 9:40 and went next door for beers so it was fine anyway.

Good movie. Was intense like the last one.

hydroplane: Because People in power are Stupid: Did anyone else find Bane's voice annoying after a while?

You must have not seen Hardy in Bronson, I got a kick picturing a swirly mustache under the mask and it was also kinda like watching Darth Vader un-dubbed with the Scotish actors voice.


I thought he sounded like one of those old school fake Soviet professional wrestlers. "To you....za peeeeee-poll."

Not annoying, but I did have trouble understanding him at the beginning of the movie. I thought after about the first hour he was much easier to understand.

WienerButt: I know in retrospect no one in that theater will care, but I went in knowing at what point this asshole busted into the theater. They really got to see nothing :(


And that's the real tragedy of the story.

It definitely would've been more if the shooting hadn't happened. And when my wife and I sat down yesterday afternoon for it, I gotta admit there was a hint of uneasiness. You just never know if some copycat is gonna go for it or not.

I thought the film was good. Better than TDK, but not as good as Begins (which is among my favs of all time). I didn't like where they took it in TDK (how he lost his element of surprise and "monster-ness"), but it was a good story in this one nonetheless. Bane was great, the voice was menacing, but it was so loud (compared to others speaking) and over-produced that it didn't seem like it was coming from him sometimes. A little distracting but not terrible.

.
.

****SPOILERS****

Can someone PLEASE explain how, when wearing what Fox called "it'll stop knives and anything but a direct shot" body armor, Miranda Tate can take her little pocket knife and stick it in to the hilt??? Thankfully they didn't go Gladiator with that wound, but it still bothers me. Also, Bane's death should've been more prominent. I wanted to see him get his ass kicked 5 ways from Sunday.

I thought it was interesting to see what happens when Bruce Wayne simply ages out of his prime. He's still a younger guy, but at pushing 40, you can't do what he did when he started. His fight with Bane (the first one), the helplessness came across so well. You couldn't but help put yourself in his shoes. Trapped in that caged area, nothing you're doing is making a difference against him.

The scarecrow judge bit seemed too cheesy. I don't understand how a terrorist can occupy an entire city for 5 months and authorities not do anything about it. Oh wait.

And man do I ever wanna see JGL as Nightwing now. Nolan only said he was done with Batman films.

A good ending though I think.
Before the auto-pilot was discovered, I was thinking ah shiat, so he does die at the end. But then I remembered "Batman doesn't lose", and wondered if that's what the writing team kept in their heads the whole time.
 
2012-07-23 12:11:06 PM

Tyrone Slothrop: So does anyone else think the Scarecrow role in the movie was originally meant for the Joker? The "death by exile" thing seems much more in line with the Joker.


Should have been Penguin, would have been neat to see Danny DeVito in that getup again.

I'm so unafraid of domestic terrorists, that I went BEFORE the shooting occurred! That's right, had the shooter gone to a theater several states east, he could've got me. Whew, I just escaped that one.

With a $9 ticket price plus ridiculous prices for soda, candy and popcorn, I'm going to keep waiting for DVDs to come out. And even then I might borrow them for free from my local public library: I got a hot air popper for $1 at a yard sale and store brand popcorn kernels are about $00.06 per serving.

Anybody who submits to paying those kinds of prices deserves to suffer. This massacre was a bit much, but protruding springs in the seats would be just fine.

So everyone's a terrorist now? I thought he was just a psycho who went on a shooting spree.

Diogenes: Because People in power are Stupid: Did anyone else find Bane's Batman's voice annoying after a while?


My wife leaned over during it and said 'what's with his annoying voice'?

I had to explain, well it worked in the first movie because the symbol of being Batman was about fear and intimidation. It does look out of place now with him walking around like a normal guy. When he was slinking in the shadows and being mysterious it made sense. Also, it wasn't as over the top in Begins. It was more subdued.

Terrorist? Really? Where?

Was he a member of a terror organization? Was he trying to scare people? Did he have such an agenda?

Maybe we're using the term Terrorist a bit much? It's all becoming a bit Handmaiden's Tale-ish.

Pocket Ninja: Actually, if Warner Brothers was smart here, they'd buy millions of little plastic wristbands that are black and stamped with the word BATSTRONG. They'd give these out at the theater as customers are on their way out from the movie as a way for people to show solidarity, to show that they cannot be intimidated. That they cannot be forced to surrender their rights. That they will watch the movie despite their fears -- no, no, not despite their fears but BECAUSE OF their fears. They will show to the world that they are the unbowed masses who know that beyond this place of wrath and tears looms but the terror of the shade, and they are unafraid. They are all of us. They are BATSRONG.

It could be the start of a pretty cool movement, I think.


I know you're probably kidding, but: I was going to wait for the dvd, as I haven't been in a theater in nearly a decade (mmm good home theater + even better home brew), but if they did that, I'd find a few friends to take with me, my treat. At *least* twice, even.

SPOILERS!

Apologies for the double post, I put this in the other TDKR thread, but I just needed to post this here as well. Just a cathartic rant after watching that movie.

I thought this movie was profoundly disappointing. It honestly felt like a comic book movie as opposed to a Nolan Batman movie. So many times I was just asking "why?" when things were going on.

Why would they send all of their police down into a tunnel without first sending in some scouts or something like that. At the very least they know there is an army down there, for all they know they set up some bunkers with turrets and are just marching into a blood bath. But wait! That doesn't even matter, because as the climactic police charge shows, you can just send a bunch of people running with billy clubs running at hundreds of men with open shots and automatic weapons and be completely fine.

Why do Bane and Miranda not blow up the city immediately. Presumably the reason is to torture Batman by showing the city falling into decay.....except that it doesn't. We're treated to a court sentencing the 1% to death. Gotham is a gigantic city, am I to believe that there aren't riots? The logistics of feeding that many people alone would be nigh impossible, let alone keeping vital services going. Asking me to accept that a city the size of NYC could survive peacefully for five months after being cut off from the outside world and threatened with a nuclear bomb is just far too much for me. Why does Bane keep the police alive? Why not just let them die? He plans on blowing the whole city up anyway?

Why do Bane and Miranda even want to blow up the city? Ra's disowned them/kicked them out of the LoS, then tried to destroy Gotham because of the decay and crime. Gotham cleaned up their act. Now Bane and Miranda want to destroy Gotham to...honor Ra's? Finish his job? Even though they had a massive falling out and weren't close?

Then you are expected to believe so much random stuff about Batman, his health, and his logistics. Bruce and Batman both disappear for eight years, and no one picks up on that? JGL can apparently figure this out by looking at his face (are you kidding me?) yet Gordon can't figure it out? What the hell? Also, the knee brace fixes the knee, which I buy, but when he is put in prison, he no longer has the brace. Also, he gets put into prison by Bane, who I assume left the island and traveled halfway around the world, and then came back? Did it somehow regrow his cartilage in just a few days? Then, he gets his back punched back into place (wut) and bulks up based on a diet that almost certainly cannot include any sort of protein. Then he escapes the prison (since you could stand on the one ledge, and the other ledge wasn't too far away, and it seems as though it wasn't too difficult to make it to the first ledge, why the hell wouldn't a prisoner just strap a metal pole or plank of wood to their back, climb to the first ledge, and make a bridge? Seriously!?), and then arrives back in Gotham without any connections/resources/explanation. Then, once he is back, he finds Gordon/Catwoman/JGL all with no explanation and all just in the nick of time. Also, he has time to make a flaming bat signal! Finally, once he pulls off all of those feats, he can just walk into the city and find the Batcopter and a Batcycle just lying around, even though Bane had the city locked down for five months. Seriously?

There were too many unnecessary characters as well. Dagget was pointless, presumably his only contribution was allowing Bane access to the sewers (no other way for that to happen). Foley was completely useless and an unbelievably cliche character. JGL did very little. I would have dropped Miranda as well, as there was nothing she added to the story (I already went over how the Ra's/LoS doesn't make a ton of sense) that Bane couldn't have accomplished.

The ending was also dumb. Seriously? Character we don't care too much about (at least I didn't) revealed at the very end to be the ultimate bad guy, and is then dispatched without much fanfare. Bane is killed basically off screen by a gunshot followed up by a one liner by Catwoman? The hero takes the bomb away from the city and sacrifices himself? I've never seen that one before, except for all the times that I have.

If you ask me, they should have dropped a bunch of characters and focused more on developing the relationship between Bane, Batman, Catwoman and the populace. Going with the theme of the 1% vs 99% which was apparent throughout the film, you could explore whether or not the people ended up preferring the rule by the 99% (Bane and the mob rule) or 1% (Batman and his elite protector) with Catwoman acting as some sort of neutral agent. This could provide some moral ambiguity, which this movie was desperately lacking, and some internal conflict for Batman (the city has improved since the days of rampant crime, should he let it run itself, or try to restore the previous order, something like that).

Also, I had this problem with TDK as well, but the score is just constantly crescendoing. It never gives you a chance to have a slow scene. There were five months of build up, and the entire time the score made it feel like the movie was climaxing. Annoying, if you ask me.

TL;DR: Thought the movie struggled with unnecessary characters robbing the interesting characters of development, and that is completely glossed over and didn't explore the ideas behind a city being isolated from the rest of the world and being taken over by mob rule. It also had a decent amount of plot holes/contrivances, lack of explanation, and some outright unbelievable scenes.

Probably in the minority but I thought 3 was easily better than 2. TDK was like a full film with a mini-film about TwoFace stuck awkwardly onto the end, and obviously the Joker was awesome but the film was a bit too complex for its own good IMO. The new one doesn't have so many plot threads and I liked the setpieces better.

2012-07-23 12:21:42 PM
I'm not intimidated, but I still am waiting to see the film. It just didn't seem right to me. The media reported that it took place during an action scene about 15 minutes into the movie, so when that scene hits, I'm going to be thinking "This is the one where all those people died." I don't know how that will make me feel, so I'm putting some time and distance in until it feels right to go.

Heh just got finished reading through this in the other one.

I agree with what you said. There's a lot that confuses me as to how it got made. Nolan is quality.

Also, I'd add what I said above. How does Miranda get a swiss army knife through Batman's body armor??
 
2012-07-23 12:22:53 PM

basemetal: Meh. I went Fri afternoon. It wasn't real crowded,it worked to my advantage.


I went late Friday, just because that was my original plan and I figured that it was going to be the safest time to be in a theater. Too early for copycats, and everyone is looking for shiat to go down. I was a little surprised though at just how spooked Denver apparently was. I expected lower attendance, but one of the larger theaters with one of the largest screens was only half full.

No, but Alfred was kinda getting to me. It could be that I just need to rewatch the others, but I swear his accent was less Harry Brown and more Austin Powers.

I'd be more interesting in knowing how Bane planned to make the explosive cement and then managed to get Blake interested enough in investigating the underground works so that they could, for some reason, send the entire police force into the tunnels at just the right moment. That guy has mad timing skills.

Not really sure why he needed to bankrupt Wayne either. I mean they've been tunneling to where the reactor is, so they obviously know where it is, so why did they need Miranda to take control of the board?

Why if you need a mask to help you breath without pain would you headbutt people so much?

Batman also totally killed that truck driver. Between that and Dent his body count is starting to creep up for a guy whose one rule is to not kill.

And if two people, two people do it, in harmony, they may think they're both Green Lantern fans and they won't take either of them. And three people do it, three, can you imagine, three people walking into the theater, humming a bar of Alfred's Restaurant and walking out? They may think it's an organization. And can you, can you imagine fifty people a day, I said fifty people a day walking in hummin a bar of Alfred's Restaurant and walking out? And friends they may thinks it's a movement.

And that's what it is , the Alfred's Restaurant Anti-Massacre Movement. And all you gotta do to join is to not be intimidated by fear.

My husband and I saw the movie on Saturday. I loved it, but I confess that I got a trifle nervous during the shooting scenes. Other than that though, I really liked it - how they tied all three movies together, etc... Was totally not expecting the child who escaped the pit to be who it actually was, though.
 
2012-07-23 12:28:23 PM
CSB time...

The chick and I head to the theater yesterday to catch a 1PM showing of TDK. We get two-farking-hours into the thing, right up to the final battle and the screen goes dead. The house lights come up, and some dude in his 20's runs out of the theater to the lobby.

A moment later he runs back in and starts screaming, "THEY'RE EVACUATING THE THEATER!!! RUN!!" And he sprints for the emergency exit... I've never seen white people move so fast in my life. Guys were literally bolting over people for the emergency exits before their girlfriends/wives could even get up from their seats. People were screaming... chaos.

I looked over at the chick, who shrugged back at me... and we walked out through the lobby while the sardines were trying to cram their way out the emergency exits.

And what was all the fuss about? An AC unit on the roof overheated and caught fire...

Which for some idea the city of Campbell felt the response of no less than six fire trucks and a dozen cops was reasonable.

The theater gave us two tickets to see TDK again, but I'll be farked if I'm going to set through over two hours of that movie again just to see the last little bit. It was good, but not that good.

Like Miranda said, she hated her father, until Batman killed him, or something.

I agree with your points as well. Bane has no problem killing cops, so why keep them alive? Thaty whole part was like when the Villan explains his motives to Bond, giving Bond enough time to beat him, only stretched out over 5 months. I don't understand why they needed to finish Ra's work either, Gotham isn't a cesspool anymore, but because it was built on a lie, that they didn't know about, it has to burn?

What's Gordon doing just walking around with a speech in his pocket for anyway?

Yeah, it was kind of a mess. What bothered me a lot was Alfred. His out of nowhere story about wishing Bruce had never come back to Gotham, and didn't want him to be Batman anymore didn't jive to me with the Alfred from the last two movies.

I wondered about that, too, but figured that since it was a slow stab, she was able to puncture the layers. Sometimes that happens w/current kevlar. Kevlar's a series of overlapping mesh membranes--it'll absorb the energy of a quick hit but a slow one has a better chance of making it through all the layers. A bullet will make it through some layers but its energy will be depleted before it hits the wearer.

I couldn't understand a damn thing he said in the first half of the movie. It was fine in the second half when he started using the microphone.

Bane's voice was Sean Connery with a cancer kazoo. I thought it was cool in the first scene but then I had a hard time understanding him and was annoyed. And why the shiat does some guy born in a hellish prison in the desert have a frickin Scottish accent?

*spoiler*

That to me is ridiculous and a typical example of overreacting to a situation. Even if there would be "copycats", which is highly unlikely, banning cosplayers is not going to stop anyone from shooting up a place if they really want to. It another form of the illusion of security, like searching your bags at Disney World.

The One True TheDavid: With a $9 ticket price plus ridiculous prices for soda, candy and popcorn, I'm going to keep waiting for DVDs to come out. And even then I might borrow them for free from my local public library: I got a hot air popper for $1 at a yard sale and store brand popcorn kernels are about $00.06 per serving.

Anybody who submits to paying those kinds of prices deserves to suffer. This massacre was a bit much, but protruding springs in the seats would be just fine.


Yes, because Darwin forbid that anybody actually like sitting in a dark theater, munching popcorn and drinking soda until their bladder burst.

sure haven't:
****SPOILERS****

Can someone PLEASE explain how, when wearing what Fox called "it'll stop knives and anything but a direct shot" body armor, Miranda Tate can take her little pocket knife and stick it in to the hilt??? Thankfully they didn't go Gladiator with that wound, but it still bothers me.


In TDK, batman wanted to be able to turn his head, so Fox gave him a suit that made him "more vulnerable to knives and gunfire". Also, he mentioned that it "should do fine against cats."
