    [QUOTE]The Dark Knight Rises didn't have enough Batman.  It had a lot of Bruce Wayne, but was much more dialog based.  IMAX or not, stuff needs to blow up. Gary Oldman was awesome as Sid Vicious and as Beethoven.  He was also great as the Russian in Call of Duty:  World at War.

    And as Rosencrantz...or Guildenstern.  And as Mason Verger behind all that freaky make-up.

    [QUOTE]The Dark Knight Rises was outstanding.
    Posted by jalvis[/QUOTE]

    I liked at lot of it; it wasn't so much a Batman movie as a strange fusion of Batman and A Tale of Two Cities (I was ticking off similarities while we watched, then when Gordon reads the last sentences of the book [spoiler deleted] I was pleased that they had acknowledged the source of the story).  Nolan's British side = inevitably bringing things back to Dickens. I hate that kind of ending, though I understand why Nolan would go that route.

    Nolan's a good storyteller - easily one of my favorites between the Dark Knight films, Momento, The Prestige, and Inception.  Insomnia was just OK.

    A reference to Dickens and Shakespeare in the same thread??  Who and where do you think you are??

    How dare you pollute our trite, banal waters with your high-brow pretensions...

    Emily Browing is outrageously hot. Suckerpunch had too many good looking girls in it.

    Also Brooklyn Decker. She looked amazing in Battleship.

    Jennifer Anniston in Horrible Bosses.

    And Rachel McAdams is gorgeous.

    Oh, and does it make it any better/worse that it was a reference to a Tom Stoppard play/film that was itself based on Shakespeare?  (Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead - Tim Roth and Gary Oldman in the title roles.  Hilarious in a high-brow-British-people-sure-think-they're-clever kind of way.

    Yes, the most delicious British wit since Faulty Towers. Hmmm, yes, good show...

    I haven't seen the play/film and I don't know their origins in Hamlet well either, but I read the R and G book that fell somewhere in between.  Can't even remember the author?  I bet you know it though...?

    I imagine it being better with Oldman involved.

    I thought Insomnia was miserable...and I got a hummer at the afternoon showing of it.  That makes most movies at least tolerable.

    Wow.  Now that's sharing something.  Caught me off guard there and I actually LOLed.

    From Shakespeare to Dickens to...that...this thread has it all.

    Classy ladies don't get taken to the afternoon showing.  There is no need to plan for an all but empty theater with them.

    The Tale of Two Cities was obvious. 

    As for Christopher Nolan, I love his work.  I agree with you: Momento, The Prestige, Inception and the Dark Knight Trilogy are all excellent.  I never saw Insomnia......sounds like I'm not missing much.

    Do they not have rooms with doors at your place of dwelling ? That might be a more appropriate plan for the next time.

    Kelv, I'm pretty sure women get married so that they'll never have to do that again.

    If you tried, you'd just be sitting through a terrible movie, getting nagged by your wife, paying a baby sitter, and missing a day of work...

    Ha.  We get it Dickens, his boots were muddy, from going to the graveyard...

    If you like cryptic mazes of subtleties in your movies, try Brazil.

    It adds a new element to the fear of getting 'shot' at the movie theatre...

    Bang on. Lenna Olin gives me serious wood, and the number she does on Oldman's character is so brutally good in Romeo is Bleeding. An absolute must see movie. 
    In the Professional, I loved the way he took his daily "meds". Truely a sick, sick character. Great Actor, good movie.
