Official Trailer 3 Griping Thread

- Bad CGI on those bridge explosions - Bane looks like a small punk in a mask - Levitt just stares with his mouth open like he's got downies - There's no way in hell that kid made a symmetrical bat symbol with that chalk - In one shot, Bane does this gay hopping punch - That line at the end is vomit

Nolan's political views?

Do you pay taxes? Are you not part of a Statist system? We are all consumed by it. I'm just saying if you don't come to understand this, or even care, the feeding will not end. What does any of this have to do with TDKR or Chris Nolan? Go preach somewhere else. Read my OP. I was hoping to discuss N...

Nolan's political views?

How so? If you don't want to debate politics, and remain ignorant of it, it will continue to consume you, whether you like it or not. I agree that politics is mostly just bullshit rhetoric, but we can't just sweep it under the rug. That's terribly naive. You are the one consumed by politics... Do y...

Nolan's political views?

which I respect the hell out of. Politics and people that are way into politics get old really fast IMO I agree. He's a smart dude, politics fuck everything up. I admit anytime a celeb talks about politics I turn the channel, stop following them on Twitter, etc. I fucking hate when they preach abou...

Nolan's political views?

I think Nolan cares about making good movies than he does about making political movies. If drawing on current issues in the public consciousness is going to make his films more powerful, then he'll do it, but he apparently doesn't care about politics enough to talk about them publicly. which I res...

Nolan's political views?

Nolan refrains from talking about his political or religious views, as far as I'm aware. He's stated in the past: NOLAN: It’s funny, I’ve been asked a lot about the politics of the film. I dismiss all such analogies [laughs]. It really isn’t something we think about as we put the story together, my...

This would be in the thread "Nolan's Beliefs" and THE THIRD FUCKIN TRAILER is right around the corner.
Did you not catch the part where I asked how it MAY AFFECT THE THEMES IN TDKR?

Nolan's political views?

What are they? Has he even talked about his political views before? I guess you can sort of analyse and interpret TDK in hopes of answering this question, but it's still not very clear. The film acts as a sort of socio-political/philosophical discourse, without either overcoming the other. Anyone h...
