The Dark Knight Rises (2012)

636 posts in this topic

I'm contemplating on whether I should see this at midnight or not. Two of my local movie theaters are doing Nolan Batman movie marathons leading up to Rises. Would it be worth the $20?

Also I spent the last half hour reading that old Dark Knight thread. Not sure why.

Ok, got tickets to see it Friday 7:00 PM. No way I'm sitting in the front row again. The last movie was hard to understand as is. I had trouble watching The Avengers because my eyes had to travel the screen.

No plans to see it 'till August.

And speaking of Rises, I'm surprised that people here haven't started babbling about how "epic" the movie will be, and how it deserves oscars and stuff.

Not that I'm saying the movie will suck, because I'm really interested in watching it. I just want to prevent hearing "THE BEST MOVIE OF THE YEAR YOU SHOULD WATCH IT" opinions.

I don't have too high hopes. Overestimation is useless.

I heard that they're going to be showing a small trailer for the new Superman movie too. Hopefully it'll be good and they won't have to reboot the franchise yet again.

Oh yeah, the action scenes in the previous movies were clunky as hell. This video perfectly breaks down an example of the bad editing shot by shot.

But hey that doesn't matter. TDK was still a great movie, and even if that kind of editing is still in this new movie, I'm sure it'll be acceptable to watch.

Though, I'm trying not to get too hyped up. I barely knew anything about TDK around the time (aside from knowing that Heath Ledger was supposed to be really good in it) and when I finally saw it, I was blown away. So, even though I'm expecting a good experience from this movie, I'll at least try to expect it not to be earth-shatteringly good.

One of my uh.. ahem.. inside men told me that a leaked copy with unfinished special effects surfaced on the Internet last week, so be weary of spoilers.

The same thing happened with TDK about 2-3 weeks before it came out. So, that combined with press privileges, I was spoiled rotten for TDK. I really don't want that to happen this time.

Uuhh... The Man of Steel will be a reboot of the Superman movie series. It was originally planned to be a sequel to Superman Returns but about a year ago or two they changed direction.

If it's directed by Zack Snyder, it probably won't be.

Yeah, I'm aware of that. I was saying that I just hope that the film doesn't receive lukewarm reception like Superman Returns did so that we won't have to see them reboot it constantly until they get it right.

If it's directed by Zack Snyder, it probably won't be.

I totally forgot that he was directing the new movie.

...God dammit. When will DC get some competent directors for films that don't involve Batman.

Ah, now I get your point. My bad.

There are positive and negative feedbacks of Snyder's chance of creating a movie series. The bad side is that his movie adaptations from comic books had always been criticized because of how much it doesn't follow the original story. The plus side is that Superman's story is so overdone either officially either in parody that there's still a chance of having some innovative plot enrichment Since Nolan is co-writting it, there won't be any problem, since Sucker Punch is an original story and the movie pretty much sucked. And with those typical eye-candy effects from Snyder movies, I guess there's a bigger advantage of creating sequels.

As far as I know, Goyer is the one doing the majority of the writing.

Goyer as a writer is a mixed bag. A lot of his stuff is frankly not very good.

Hey now, Snyder isn't that bad. His only movie that I considered mediocre was Sucker Punch. I think it'll be interesting to see his take on Superman.

Also referring to what you said in another thread about Nolan's Batman films having bad costume designs, I couldn't help but notice how lazily they did Bane. He's literally just a guy with a mask.

The whole "Bane eating a fucking spider" get-up is what is annoying me the most though. Why not just give him his regular mask? It's not that out of the ordinary. Hell, the fucking Scarecrow wears a burlap sack over his head so I really don't see what they were aiming for with this design.

The thing about Snyder is that all of his movies except one are based on existing works. The ONE original movie he did ended up kind of sucking (lol). Man of Steel has no foundation to go by other than being a Superman movie and that's what people are nervous about.

He's all right, but he should stay in the director's seat.

Reading up on the process they went through to make the mask gave me a much better appreciation of it. I can't be assed to link something right now, but they did put a lot of thought into how the thing looked.

Man, this reminds me of the people who were trying to find some then-contemporary political subtext related to the Iraq War in Revenge of the Sith, which is giving Lucas too much credit as a writer. Oh wait, this thread is about Christopher Nolan Batman, not Star Wars, oops.

Then again, this is Limbaugh whose entire job description is "say outrageous bullshit to get people's attention". That article described him as a "rabble-rouser" which is a fitting term for him.

I haven't seen TDK is god knows how long, but I remember enjoying the action scenes. Maybe I'll start to notice why you people hated them in the new one, if and when I go to see it.
