FTFA: I've never liked films that go part of the way there and then take an improbable leap.

You mean like Bruce Wayne's leap without a rope?

This Looks Fun: thecpt: jesus farking christ, am I the only one who liked the films? Not to mention how incredible TDK was. Appreciate the guy. Reading this is giving me depth on what he was trying to accomplish, so thank you subby.

I'm right here with you. Really enjoyed the films and this interview. I'm surprised by the comments as well.


Let's not get ahead of ourselves here. The movies are good, but he's no Schumaker. I read a very similar interview with Schumaker and his interpretation of the script, settings, characters, and his methodologies of putting them to film. And, to Schumaker's credit, in his mind there was no other way to capture and potray the souls, the very being of his characters, other than to include nipples and protruding codpieces. Most profound, if you ask me.

In TDKR, after about 10 mins of listening to Bane talk all I could picture was Sean Connery speaking through a traffic cone. It took me a couple of times through the movie before I could get over it.

Strategeryz0r: Detinwolf: My only problem with TDKR is that the city was on total lockdown, but when Batman escaped from the prison, they showed him walking back into the city via a bridge. The only bridge was barricaded by the national guard IIRC.

Well... he IS the goddamn Batman


Yep. Guy's a ninja billionaire who thrives on misdirection and wears two personas in public.

"But he was broke!" Wrong. He had plenty of secret cash stashed away (every billionaire does), which is what he used to take over Wayne Enterprises in Begins, and that was after being declared dead (which is not easy to come back from on paper).

"But how did he get from the prison to Gotham?" Maybe the same way he got from Gotham to Hong Kong in the prior movie? By maybe tapping secret stashes of money and resources?

"But Gotham was sealed!" Bane's a member of the League of Shadows, which teaches misdirection and theatrics. Was Gotham locked down, or did Bane just say it was? Even if it was, there are multiple ways into and out of a major city that aren't highways or bridges, especially if, you know, you're a ninja billionaire.

"But everyone will know he survived because he was in the cafe!"

You're telling me he hasn't the resources to change his identity? Or that he's recognized by everyone in a foreign country? That the company he owned, that ousted him and thinks he's dead and is likely being run by a whole new bunch of people because all the other board members are likely dead, is going looking for him instead of rebuilding Gotham? That he couldn't simply tell someone who thinks he's Wayne, "Yeah, I get that a lot"?

(CSB: I saw a guy in college that looked exactly like Freddie Mercury -- not "could be his brother"; I mean, someone plucked him out of the early 80s with a time machine and deposited him in Memphis -- two years after he died.)

ElusiveWookiee: So, Fark has hit Peak Batman and started hating it now?


Where've you been? Also, Christopher Nolan is an overrated hack.

moothemagiccow: The second one was great but the fact that the Joker got the prisoners and the citizens on separate ferries made no sense.


That particular scene was when I'd finally had enough of TDK. A freaking Prisoner's Dilemma? Seriously? And have a Magical Negro resolve it? Bull farking shiat.

Decillion: theorellior: moothemagiccow: Maybe he can explain why the climaxes were so contrived

Oh, come on, killer steam is an awesome way to cap off a superhero romp!

Hmmm, each ending involved a bomb of some kind. Therefore with deep analysis we can surmise that either Nolan really likes bombs or lost interest before he finished each movie.


It's a reference to this, you philistine:

Some movies you just can't get rid of a bomb.
