The Dark Knight Rises came out last summer, but every once in a while, I stumble upon a cool collection of interesting things regarding the very popular movie.  Despite having a nearly 3 hour run time, it’s pretty obvious that movie had some plot holes.  Many people have tried to use them to tarnish the movie and others go to extreme lengths to refute them.  However, Jest has compiled a very cool way of compiling the plot holes by making them satirical newspaper headlines.  Check out the rest of them below and then refute any of them if you thought of a way to get around it!

This summer was an enormous superhero release time with big players like The Avengers and Dark Knight Rises.  Hitfix decided to compile the best of the best in gallery form.  You’ll get your traditional stuff like The Dark Knight and Incredibles, but they leave out some of my favorites and include even one I didn’t recognize.  Rocketeer?  Never heard of ya’.

We’ve featured Badman before when he faced the Riddler in the face off of the century.  College Humor and Frontpage films have made another one where he takes on Scarecrow.  Scarecrow’s primary defense is his ability to use fear as a weapon.  So when he tries to find out what Batman fears most…well let’s just say he’s in for a surprise.  The video is hilarious and even has a celebrity cameo!  I want more.  With Freeze, Ivy, Catwoman, the whole shebang.

We’re no stranger to featuring funny Batman parodies.  I don’t particularly think this one is as funny as the Badman series College Humor puts out, but it’s pretty decent.  The action sequences are surprisingly smooth and the club scene is very impressive for amateur video production.  I don’t think the Batman is as funny as he could’ve been, but with so many of these Batman parodies running around, this one shines pretty well.

There’s a lot of people giving heat to the Dark Knight Rises for the plot holes.  Uproxx had compiled most if not all of the alleged plot holes and sarcastically answered them back with reasonable explanation.  How did Bruce Wayne get back into Gotham? How did Scarecrow become the judge if the people chose everything?  Check out the sarcastic answers [or maybe even just see what all the plot holes are] at the link.

Hitfix did a really cool article before the Dark Knight Rises was released pointing out all the exciting moments that are to come from the movie.  It’s interesting to go back to that article and point out all the questions they had: What role is Joseph Gordon Levitt and Marion Collitard REALLY playing?  Why does everyone have a Tumbler? How will Anne Hathaway redefine Catwoman?  We know know all the answers to these questions and debunking and confirming some of the suspicions were fun.

How do you make a Christopher Nolan movie trailer better?  By mashing it up with another Christopher Nolan trailer.  We’ve already shown you how awesome Nolan trailers can be, but this one is different because it mashes up another one of his movies, The Prestige in it.  I like how the editor made each one of Nolan’s movies a part of the three aspects of a magic trick: the pledge, turn, and prestige.  Maybe I’m not looking deep enough because I don’t believe that there is any other significant other than 1, 2, and 3, but I know there are some rather radical internet theories out there.  By the way, if you haven’t already seen the Prestige, do yourself a favor and watch it!  It’s absolutely amazing and totally on par with his other movies.  All I need to see now is an Insomnia/Memento mashup and I just might be able to die a happy man.

The Dark Knight Rises continue to dominate this week’s posts with more and more awesome things surfacing.  Whilst looking back at the Dark Knight trailer for old time goosebumps, I stumbled upon this well done trailer to the entire trilogy.  The monologue fits beautfiully and hearing ‘ol Heath’s voice is near spine chilling.  This trailer truly encompasses not just Batman, but the growth and journey of Bruce Wayne.  The trailer itself is about 6 minutes long but is absolutely entrancing to watch.  It includes clips from all three movies and fits so beautifully together.  Stop reading this and seriously press the play button.  And then when you’re done, press play again.

Cracked has a series called After Hours where they take a group of highly opinionated individuals and break down a random subject by looking at its history and legacy.  In this episode, they debate whether or not Batman is actually good for Gotham.  They use points like his sanity, the villains he creates, and how he could actually truly benefit Gotham by not being Batman.  See the well seasoned debate above.

Follow @GregBurney  for this rendition and awesome breakdown of the one of Christopher Nolan’s first movies Memento.  If you haven’t seen this movie, it’s probably one of film buff’s 101 movies to watch.  The style, the story, the performance.  Everything about this movie will make you fall in love with the industry like I have.  And it’s clear that others who have fallen in love with the industry can create graphics like this to absolutely blow people’s mind just as much as the movie did.

I want to open up a debate today regarding who is today’s most significant director.  Obviously the answer is open ended and very opinion based, ranging from choosing your favorite director based on a favorite movie vs. his style.  But I want to narrow it down by choosing a director who’s currently still making the best movies.  I do appreciate out of the box answers like, Stanley Kubrick and his influence on the style and heavy music moments in Nicholas Winding Refn, and I questions just how movie savvy you are if you can make that connection.  I am not a film major, so the lines aren’t as clear as some of you who are, but that doesn’t mean I can’t have an opinion, so I challenge those who are intimidated by these notions to take a chance and stand by your choice.

In my honest opinion, I think today’s most consistently good director is without a doubt Christopher Nolan.  He’s distinguished himself over and over again with his blockbuster movies that are more than just blind action movies.  I understand that some directors after a big action movie with a production company breathing down their necks would want to take a break and do an artsy and less demanding film, but Christopher Nolan’s break from The Dark Knight was Inception and we both know how amazing that was.  His track record is near flawlesss with Memento and Insomnia as his relatively underappreciated beginnings [neither films got as much attention as they did until Nolan did The Dark Knight].  And he continued to build upon them with the genius of The Prestige.

I also respect him as a private man, who values the magical sense of his movies.  Seriously, no one knew what the hell Inception was about until they sat down at a movie theater and watched Leo break down dream hunting to them.   Now-a-days, he’s become a household name and his name attached to anything warrants the public to go see what he’s up to.  When he wraps up his Batman trilogy, the man will be unrestrained again to do what he likes, and I’ll sure as hell be lining up at the theaters to shell out for whatever he produces.  And I think that mentality is what makes me believe he’s the most significant director out there today, a man who, no matter what the material is about, we line up for because of his name attached to a film.

And now I truly want your opinion.  I know I haven’t really been making a community of Banana Feed recently, leaving comments unreplied or unthanked, and I’m honestly trying to fix that.  These discussion threads are meant to spark debate that I would gladly have with any of you.  Just be sure to observe common courtesy to myself and others on this site.

These days, Christopher Nolan is a household name.  Or at least he’s known as ‘guy who did Inception and Batman’.  He doesn’t have too many credits to his name, but the sheer genius of everything he’s involved in speaks volume about his careful choice in material and his ability to deliver.  I personally have seen six out of the seven movie’s he’s released under the name director.  What’s also incredible is the fact he’s had a hand in writing most of these films too.  I’ve always believed a director should be involved in the writing process, so that the visualization can match the execution.  So I’ve ranked the six Christopher Nolan movies I’ve seen.  Comparison of these movies against each other is like comparing the best athlete when you’re picking from the Miami Heat or the best alcohol for a good night.  You’re ranking system can be heavily affected the mere mood you’re in.  Being number 6 on a Christopher Nolan film is still like being 20 on the best movies of all time list.  Hit the jump to check out number one.  Potential spoilers below.

Absolutely Horrifying, but captures him so well. By Lucius-Ferguson

The Joker is one of them most colorful characters in the comic book universe.  We most remember him by Heath Ledger’s performance and praised him for his take on the Joker.  But artists have been trying to capture the Joker for years in the form of a single picture.  This is a gallery of madness.  One might think the artists themselves have gone mad trying to capture the essence of the chaotic Joker.  Hit the jump for the gallery.
