Kind of yeah, but since this movie was made with most of the same cast (Ledger obv did an incredible job) and the same writer and director, I don't think that's an altogether unreasonable expectation.

If it's a Christopher Nolan movie and it's an 8/10 it's a failure

Note I haven't seen it yet.

Remember that TDK's greatness was a lot due to Ledger's performance though. And to expect that caliber of movie again is wishful thinking. I know I wasn't.

I wasn't expecting Hardy to be Ledger-esque but part of the problem is that he had one of the better jobs of anyone in the movie. It wasn't his fault it was a less-than-stellar effort, it was mostly the poor writing.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Forum Discussion

Why are fanbois so butthurt that someone doesn't absolutely love the film and feel the need to defend it ad nauseum? It was a 6/10 for me, better than average but so full of unintentional lulz that it's not worthy of a hiring rating (to me). If you want to love it, go ahead. I don't care.

I didn't love it, it had plenty of flaws. But 6/10 is not accurate, sorry

i figure the guy who made a bat**** insane bet on tdkr beating avatar in box office and then went to see the midnight showing on thursday probably has a rational, objective view of the film.

The main plot device is a ****ing ticking time bomb that Batman saves with mere seconds remaining. Just think about how cliched that is, and then tell me that a 6/10 is unreasonable

what's the square root of the WAR of the film? is that how you calculate xfip?

although i have elected to blame my impending loss of the bet on james holmes and not my blind ignorance

i cannot dispute this

edit: fwiw my contention isn't that stuff like what RT or sethy are saying are stupid, just this notion that it's a bad movie because it wasn't dark knight, which was only amazing by comparison because of heath ledger

pretty sure I already covered why he keeps going back, she has the daughter. and if she moves, he knows even as a well employed man he stands nochance on getting custody.
can we get pics on this chick to determine really, really hot, or just meh hot?

i thought it was like a 6.5 or a 7 or something. tons of stupid lolz but i personally really liked bane. the voice was kinda cool and he didn't talk toooo much. he was super jacked.

that said, there were inf inconsistencies that tilted the **** out of me.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Forum Discussion

Wow, I drove right by that place without realizing it was more than a strip club. Gonna need to check that out.

The place I went to tonight was on the same street about 20 blocks down. Tons of clueless players with really great staff that knows when to be quiet and when to be a little sardonic. Flat rake ("club fee") of $10 per day, which seems to be standard here, and also ****ing awesome.

Yeah no rake allowed. Club fees are ridiculous.

I thought the movie was entertaining and enjoyable to watch, but it was 7/10 on the etats scale. I don't mind the plot holes since I'm goatish at suspending my belief.

My 3 biggest problems:

clumsy "as you know, robin..." exposition in dialogue is a staple of comic books so that was probably just another homage
