Man of Steel (2013)

For me personally, I'm loving the Batman Begins parallels. It's showing the character of Superman we've never seen before. Same here, everyone knows who these heroes are by name but nobody REALLY knows who Superman really is. What's his inner conflict? I want to know who Clark Kent is definitively ...

Man of Steel (2013)

*sigh* Only in my dreams will I get the perfect Batman and (hopefully) perfect Superman in the same film. Makes me cringe every time Justice League is mentioned. http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m7j3d1buLC1qhclupo8_r1_250.gif http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m7j3d1buLC1qhclupo10_r1_250.gif http://...

Tom Hardy as Bane

Alright fair enough if you feel that way but I didn't and I'm struggling with it. I think it's a fitting development to Bane's character and here's why Bane's death--because--of its unceremonial quality serves as a perfect ending to his character both thematically and personally: Bane breaks people...

The Dark Knight Rises Appreciation Thread

One thing lost in all the criticism is how awesome Bale performed. His facial expression and delivery during the Miranda...Why? is otherworldly. Bale gave the best performance and had a LOT to work with in this one. We see his playboy side, his weakened fragile psyche after 8 years, broken down phy...

TDKR Celebrity/Industry Reactions & Buzz Discussion

Does anyone else feel that the only people hating on this movie are on internet forums? Everyone I know IRL loved it, the audience is gushing over it, has a cinemascore of A... Yes. The internet is not an accurate representation of the general population. This. The most notable opinions are those o...

IMDB Top 250

Even thought I rated this movie a 8/10 I still hope that it will remain in the IMDb top 20! Maybe after I view it a second time I might give it a full 10/10. I think you definitely have to give it another viewing if not a couple more. I enjoyed watching The Dark Knight when it came out opening week...

Tom Hardy as Bane

However, unlike you, I don't think that randomly devalues Bane's character. It's just something in the film I preferred was handled differently. Alright fair enough if you feel that way but I didn't and I'm struggling with it. I felt the same way during my initial reaction to the end of The Joker's...

Tom Hardy as Bane

I liked his death scene. Selina Kyle did what needed to be done. And, damn, a big gun had to take out that big guy Bane. But I totally understand why people wouldn't like it so much. I agree, and it was a great theater moment when the blast came out of nowhere. Plus we already got our moment when i...

Tom Hardy as Bane

Bane's speech (not in full and bolded words to reflect Hardy's delivery) "I present to you as the shining example of justice. You have been supplied with a false idol to stop you from tearing down this corrupt city . Let me tell you the truth about Harvey Dent from the words of Gotham's police commi...
