I went to the movies at 9 in the morning. Pretty sure that’s the earliest screening I’ve ever been to. Anyway, when I came home, my son immediately punched me in the balls. Honestly. I think he was trying to give me a hug, but was looking away, and he slugged me right in the junk. Likely, he meant well, but his grand gesture of adoration went awry and ended up a painful moment of shock and disappointment.
If you haven’t gotten it by now, I was crushed with disappointment after seeing The Dark Knight Rises. Oh, that was obvious? Well, if you’ve seen this movie, you know that everything must be explained and shown fully to occur. I’m just following suit.
I went into full-on internet lockdown when it came to reviews (or even images) concerning the third film in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy. This was going to be hands down the movie of the summer, if not of all time. You can laugh at the absurdity of that all you want, but I was f–king hyped. And when I left the damn-near three-hour epic, I was in shock not only because the movie it wasn’t even close to being that good, I honestly felt for a minute that it wasn’t good at all.
Read the rest of this witty, well structured, review at Two Dollar Cinema. You’ll find here points that bring up plot holes and inconsistencies that don’t necessarily take away from the movie, but are definitely a good point or two to bring up before always blindly praising the film [much like I did to admit].
About 230/270 critics on Rotten Tomatoes deemed the Dark Knight Rises as a ‘good’ movie. There was a neat uprising about a guy a couple of weeks ago who wrote a negative review who was so absurd in his points, that he was beginning to get death threats. Now, the United States is a free country where you can say what you like without the fear of being attacked or put down, so this idea was absolutely insane. Now today’s Weekend Reblog is something a little bit different. I send you to Two Dollar Cinema, one of my longtime blogger friends, who writes a legitimate ‘negative’ review on his blog. While he certainly doesn’t hate the movie, he does definitely brings up some good points and says, “TDKR was like a girlfriend that dumped me. All of a sudden I’m pissed about all the little things, but before I looked right passed them. ” That’s the kind of humor you’ll find over there. So check it out!
This reblog is a little different because he hails from rival blogging domain Blogger, but blogging friendship extends beyond that.
