I just assume he took the BFE --> Gotham express bus. Probably didn't have trouble getting a ticket either.

Did somebody say big tits? Gotta go see this movie now.

Karak, did you see it at the IMAX at the Air and Space Museum? If so, do they have popcorn and stuff there?

The biggest plot hole of the movie was how Ben Roethlisberger wasn't raping everybody

Also the issue isn't so much that these things happen, it's that they happen with no attempt whatsoever to explain why- when all it would take would be 20 seconds of exposition. Instead we got Matthew Modine's arc, which added nothing whatsoever to the movie.
wait, wtf. matt modine was in dark knight: rises?

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Forum Discussion

The same people complaining about the movie's length are the ones that wanted Nolan to take more time to hand-feed them things, like how Bruce Wayne took a plane back and then ninja'd his way back into Gotham or some other mundane thing that doesn't even matter

one thing i need to give credit to the movie: the opening scene was really, really good.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Forum Discussion

Karak,

When the movie intentionally creates obstacles for the main character and then hand waves them away, that's a problem. You're smarter than the arguments you're making.

Did I complain (seriously- you can say my name when you ***** about me, it's not like nobody could crack your code) about the length? I just said it was long enough that "not enough running time" is not much of a valid excuse. I have zero problems with long movies as long as they use the time well. To it's credit, the pace of this movie is such that I didn't feel the length at all.

And again- nobody's saying it's a bad movie. However, it's a B/B+, and the things we're talking about are what keeps it from being great.
