(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 7

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.


I was complaining about this tendency before most people had even heard of it.

Correct for 100 points. Now, for 200 points and the lead, what colour is the sky?

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?

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.
