(Shadowlocked)   Why Iron Man 3 is basically just The Dark Knight Rises. And why that's a good thing. (Yes, it may have been said before, but this one talks about thematic parallels and everything. Also, trailer mash-up video.)   (shadowlocked.com) divider line 12

I never saw Iron Man 2, but if this movie is half as good as any of the Nolan films, I'll be there. Sadly, there's no way to close the story in a grand fashion like TDKR. There are bound to be several more Avengers films, so Iron Man will have to keep on trucking.

Free Radical: So it's filled with ridiculous plot holes, goes on for an hour longer than it needs to, and wastes time with meaningless flashbacks?

I may have to pass on it.


You keep using that phrase. I do not think it means what you think it means.

Just rewatched Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang yesterday. If this is half as good as that last Shane Black/RDJ match-up, it will blow your minds away.

/if they re-released KKBB and taped over 2005 with 2012, it would make millions now that RDJ is a star

Wayne 985: By the way, is it just me, or does most of Fark hate any new film? I remember The Dark Knight being called a "piece of sh--" by half the people here, and them bemoaning how terrible Ledger was and what a disappointment it was after Batman Begins. Before that, Batman Begins "sucked" and his Batmobile looked like a "stupid monster truck" and they should just let the series die, etc.

Same thing with the trailers for The Hobbit. I watched it, thought, "Boy, this looks really well done," and glanced at the Fark comments: "Boring", "Stupid", "What was that?", and the usual. It's actually why I don't post or come here all that often any more. Not because people have a difference of opinion, which I welcome, but because at least 50% of the users are basically hipsters who want you to know how lame everything is.


1/2? No only a vocal minority, which I am one, thought the Dark Knight sucked donkey balls and Heath Ledgers Joker was the worst Joker ever. As for the latest chapter of DK I could not tell you if it was good or bad, because I did not pay money to go see it and won't. Dark emo angsty Batman sucks.

Boojum2k: Decillion: Free Radical: Wayne 985: You keep using that phrase. I do not think it means what you think it means.

There were no plot holes in TDKR?

Go on...

Plot hole does not mean, 'Things I wish happened differently'.

No, it means things like "guy who has no cartilage in his knee and requires a special brace to walk, and has had his back broken, can climb a wall and fall on the rope, putting immense stress on his back repeatedly, and then go right back into action like he stole a younger body." For starters.

Batman Begins was good. The Dark Knight was incredible. The Dark Knight Rises was BINO.


Um... You realize Wayne's back wasn't broken, correct? He had a displaced vertebra, which was explained in the movie. His leg also had that cybernetic attachment for his leg, which remained with him throughout the movie.

Did you watch the whole thing?

thecpt: Wait it was chemical explosives in concrete done under city approved permits. Or was that the joke?


It was a really smart idea mixing it the concrete, really smart. However you still need to rig it up to blow. Start running a ton of wire around bridges and you're going to get a busy body to rat on you.

Still love the movie, but you have to suspend some belief. Anyone who demands that everything be believable is just going to be disappointed. Go watch some chick flick or something

Again, not plot holes. You just wanted a different Batman movie.



Give it up White Knight guy. I liked the movie alot and it still had gaping plot holes. Hell analyze TDK and it has more than a few as well.

Well, what you're saying is these are things you wish were shown differently. It's explained how his back was fixed. It was not a Knightfall injury. Perhaps they didn't make it clear the amount of time that passes over his captivity (for healing and conditioning), but the idea is there with the snow, and the condition of Gotham.

Again, not plot holes. You just wanted a different Batman movie.

I thought Marvel's answer to The Dark Knight Rises was Avengers.
