I can’t take it anymore

I wasn’t going to write anything, I didn’t think The Dark Knight Rises is even worth slamming, but tv changed my mind.

In an ad for The Dark Knight Rises (Rises for short), apparently some reviewer called it “one of the best films ever made.” Yes, I’m certain that every thirty-four year-old living in his mom’s basement thought it was fucking epic, but putting it up there with Cool Hand Luke, Casablanca, Doubt, even The Dark Knight, is a complete, astonishing joke. Rises is, at least in my head, one of the most boring movies ever made. At almost three hours long, it really felt like seven. The action sequences were flat, complete with contrived jumps for sport-bikes. The villain, Bane, was dry and absolutely pointless. I can’t say enough to fully capture how painfully bad The Dark Knight Rises is, I couldn’t wait to leave the theater.

    I haven’t seen the movie but you definitely have a broader spectrum of movies in mind than that reviewer. I’ll see Rises when I get a chance but it won’t be one of the best for me, either. What’s you favorite movie (or movies, if you can’t narrow it to one)?


    BTW, I took longer than 46 secs to read your post.

     “What we’ve got here is failure to communicate. Some men you just can’t reach. So you get what we had here last week, which is the way he wants it… well, he gets it. I don’t like it any more than you men.”

    What a strange feeling, reading the comment above I’ve listened to “Civil War” inside my head, and I went to youtube to see this scene that I hadn’t seen before… I never new where this speech came…

    Well, and Batman? I confess I am not very interested in watching this movie… guess I’m tired of action movies, with guns, fights, deaths. I would rather go to see the new Woody Allen.
