Project X - A pretty funny teen comedy with pretty much everything the trailer showed and then some. Was definitely not expecting it to be this good. 4.5/5 Check it out if you're in for a few laughs and/or just utterly bored.

The Dark Knight Rises (2012)

I would've posted this review sooner, but it's taken me a while to get over how brilliant it is, so I can judge it on it's own merits. There's a lot to like about this film, and I've been racking my brains for a while thinking about what's not to like, but I've came to the conclusion that there's hardly anything. The film is brilliant, and it's probably the strongest entry of the trilogy. Everything in this movie is near perfect, from the cinematography, to the pacing (Which puts it leagues above The Dark Knight straight away), to the genuinely heartbreaking scenes involving Bruce Wayne and his faithful butler Alfred. I can honestly say that I've never cried so much in a film in my entire life. Every scene involving Michael Caine is just heart wrenching, and the last half of the film is beyond excellent.

Christian Bale puts in a brilliant performance as Bruce Wayne, which in my opinion in his strongest to date. The thing I liked about this film most though, is the fact that it hasn't followed in the footsteps of 'The Dark Knight', and went down more of a 'Batman Begins' route. This is Bruce Wayne and Gotham central, which in itself is a perfect way to wrap up the series. Then we have the fact that this is not a superhero movie, far from it. This is probably the most real and down to earth Batman film you'll see and what the film manages to do, is maintain such a strong and personal connection to the characters and at the same time and give it such a massive scope. The thing that struck me the most though. is that this is not a conventional Batman film, and more like an extremely character driven art house film. It deals mostly with Gotham without a hero, and I think thats where the most successful aspect lies. I also love that this is Bruce Wayne central. Batman is hardly ever featured, and I really do feel that this was a very risky, but wise move. It was very important that it focused on the Bruce Wayne character, because that's where the true heart and emotion lives.

As mentioned before, I found it really difficult to find flaws in this film. It does have a few plot holes (How did Bruce get back into Gotham, etc), but you know what? It really doesn't matter. The film is so strong in it's own right that I can gladly overlook it's flaws. I found Bane a tad underused, but I think the fact that The Dark Knight Rises focuses more on loss, and the people of Gotham adjusting to a world without Batman, then It makes sense for him to be confined to the background.

I can't really make up my mind whether or not I prefer this to Batman Begins, but it's definately on par, and I've never once been thus emotional connected to a film, so I have a feeling that this could very well be my favourite chapter in the trilogy. I'm not going to say that I've loved The Dark Knight Trilogy over the years. I've only just recently rediscovered Batman Begins, I really didn't think much of it the first time, but soon entered my top 10 film list. While I really enjoy The Dark Knight, I still think it's very flawed, but now that the series has concluded. I am feeling an overwhelming sense of loss. So thank you Christopher Nolan, for restoring my faith in cinema, and taking the time to deliver and intelligent and exciting range of films.

Where do I begin. The Dark Knight Rises is the biggest letdown ever. Bigger than the hype train the was Prometheus. I couldn't find a single thing to like or even love besides Tom Hardy's performance as Bane. The film kept dragging on and took to long to get to the point. Catwoman was unnecessary I couldn't picture Anne Hathaway as the character and she had almost zero charisma unlike Michelle Pfeiffer's portrayal in Batman Returns. I'd of gone with Olivia Wilde as Catwoman, but if I could have my way, remove the character completely. Bane did nothing but deliver speeches and break Batman's back. For Christ's sake, Joker caused more mayhem and did more psychotic things than Bane. I laughed at the plot holes in the film. Bane is Batmans most stongest and feared enemies. That wasn't the case. Again he broke his back and that was it. Bane needed to be more menacing. The cinematography was like everything else we see in a Nolan film. Zimmer's music score was so loud and overpowering I couldn't hear dialogue. The Dark Knight was much better than this. Now, it would appear as if I hated this film. Partially true. I enjoyed it to a certain extent. It's not a brilliant film. It has flaws and the acting was sub-par(my opinion) minus Michael Caine, who's always great in whatever he's in and Tom Hardy. I just wasn't feeling the vibe this third go-around. It's certainly entertaining as far as action scenes go, but the running length and the fact that for a while it was the same thing going back and forth before it got interesting and went back and forth regarding the previous issue (whichever that may be - trying not to give a spoiler) People that rave about this film are either 1.) Die hard Batman fans (like myself) 2.) Nolan Fans who believe he's the greatest director period(I too am a Nolan fan, until this film.) 3.) average movie-goers who just so happen to enjoy this nearly 3 hour film and it's well "un-epic-ness" Nolan's Inception is a great film. And to be frank, I believe it should've ended with The Dark Knight. Entertaining, but still overall terrible.

2.5/5

INDIANA JONES AND THE KINDGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL

I've never been a fan of the Indiana Jones films, but even I was shocked at how bad this was. Harrison Ford was good but aside from that there wasn't a whole lot to enjoy here.

1/5




IN GOOD COMPANY

A good film, even if cliched at times and a bit predictable. Dennis Quaid and Topher Grace have a good sense of comraderie on screen that lifts the film above what it otherwise probably should be.

3/5

Well that's not what I had in mind, I tried my best, even when my friends felt the same way about the film. But if you look at everything after The Dark Knight, people make Nolan out to be a god of film. It's quite annoying.

I don't hate or dislike anyone. That's they're opinion. I'm just telling it the way it is, and I find the hype surrounding the movie and Nolan annoying.

I'm quite expressive, so I basically write what comes to mind, I pretty much miss-worded that whole last part there.

The Dark Knight Rises.

awesome film. *****

I loved Anne Hathaway...she was the most fun thing to watch in the film.Hardy's Bane was a tremendous villian- they made the 5'9 Hardy look like Godzilla. I think my only complaint is at 2:45 it feel like it' missing some content that a directors cut could correct.

The Dark Knight Rises

I don't think anything I write can do justice to what I saw tonight! An incredible film. Would I say it's the best of the trilogy? I think it's hard to compare the three as they're all very different films in their own right, so I wouldn't go as far as to say it's the best of the three. Would I say it's the perfect ending to the series? Yes I most certainly would!
Spoiler
There's very little to criticise about the film. One little bit of nitpicking I could do would be to say that Bane is at times hard to understand vocally, but that's being very critical. Nolan's direction is a joy to behold, as is a very impressive performance from Christian Bale, who brilliantly displays more emotion and sensitivity in this film than in the previous two, as Jonathan Nolan's script calls for a more raw portrayal of the ever-troubled Bruce Wayne. I loved Selina Kyle (Catwoman to the fanboys of course) and whilst I was less impressed with the rather one-dimensional Bane, I thought the film offered a good variety of characters for the audience to develop feelings for, whether they were feelings of admiration or loathing.
Spoiler
The finale is superb, and one of the most tense scenes I've seen in a long time, and the final few twists in the plot are the jewel in the crown of what is undoubtedly one of the best superhero films ever made. Both Christopher (director) and Jonathan (writer) Nolan can be very proud of what they have achieved here.

Not at all Ace - we all have our own opinions and it's interesting to see your views on it. Never a bad thing my friend.

Well, I'll give my verdict on that film I saw recently...what's it called again....


The Dark Knight Rises (2012)

Taking an easy way out, a lot of my views have been expressed in the above reviews - in a nutshell I loved the film and found myself clock watching towards the finale and was getting a little angry as the film wrapped up. It's only looking back now, as I didn't know why I was doing it, was that I actually didn't want the film to end. I wanted a bit more from Nolan's Batman universe - I wanted to spend more time with these characters I'd been introduced to and followed for 7 years and even those new ones introduced through the trilogy.

It's the characters, and humanity, that engrossed me and the journey they take. It's a fantastic end to Nolan's Batman trilogy and the level of excitement and emotion is something not felt before in a 'superhero' film that I've seen.

The new characters excelled my expectations - Selina Kyle was perfectly portrayed by Anne Hathaway and very, very scene stealing for numerous reasons. John Blake is the diamond in the rough, played by Joseph Gordon-Levit with a great passion and determination and very surpirsed by how likeable I found him. Miranda Tate, the ever dependable Marion Cotillard, was someone who drew me in during her jounrey with Wayne Enterprises and never let me go until the end. But my favourite, and somewhat underused and over-shadowed by The Joker as a benchmark villain, is Bane, played by Tom Hardy.

Bane looked the part, sounded the part and delivered everything I could want from a brutish villain intent on causing choas and destruction. I could watch this killing machine for hours and found him engrossing, intelligent, witty and a prime example of a leader who has many minions to do his dirty work which led to when he DID have to get his hands dirty, I found each moment shocking, powerful and almost painful to see every punch and kick land on his victims! Tom Hardy floored me with how excellent his performance was, given that it was 99% with his eyes and vocals only!

Supporting cast were as strong as ever and simply made the journey more engaging to follow with the cast and characters we've grown to care for over the trilogy.

The music was menacing and haunting in places, sticking with me far after the curtain came down, especially Bane's theme - simply, yet chilling. The cinematography was wonderful, and I felt I could really soak in the atmosphere of Gotham at night, in the day, during sunshine or snow. Just remarkable work by the crew to create this world and fill it with the locations, gadgetry, costumes (Bane's mask is brilliant, and Kyle looks so stunning at all times!) and stunt work to give this film power. The action sequences are big and bold but never over-the-top and in your face. They are remarkable to watch and they are never dragged out to pad out the story - even the sequences with The Bat are manageable, exciting and never dragged out for spectacle's sake.

Christian Bale IS Batman and Bruce Wayne, after a performance spanning over 7 years that I have learnt to love, respect, dispise and understand as a character.Christopher Nolan has been the director of our time to give him the journey he deserves in these modern times and if there is any hope for future stories and films about Batman that Nolan can be involved in, I would be very, very confident he is in safe hands.

'The Dark Knight Rises' closed the trilogy in the best way I could want, and my only gripes are the little things I personally wanted as in more screentime for Bane and a bit more character closure and direction but nothing that will detract from a cinematic experience to be reckoned with in times of big, loud flashy popcorn entertainment.

I'll miss Nolan's Batman universe. That's the definate outcome.

I have to say I find it very troubling that watching the Nolan-Batmans will always be shadowed by tragedies (Ledger´s death, the Denver shooting). And although I don´t want to draw any conclusions from the fact that the shooter was supposedly seeing himself as The Joker I cannot help thinking about the relationship between popular entertainment and real life.

Granted, millions of people watched TDK and did not feel the need to act like The Joker. Just as millions of people watch any other film depicting cruelty without becoming cruel persons.

Still. When I heard the news about Denver I was reading the recent Empire magazine. At guess what, almost every film depicted had a male hero with a gun. Almost every picture was fetishizing men shooting others.

Is this really what we love to watch for entertainment and relaxation?

Why have movie heroes become so gung ho on solving conflict with violence?

And before you say "thrillers need guns and violence" I will point to films in which the heroes are opposed to violence. Films like "Three Days of the Condor" which has the protagonist run from violence without shooting or waving around his gun. The whole film, IMO, still is one of the most thrilling films in movie history.

Of course, all this might sound weird coming from a fan of James Bond.

But not really, IMO. Because James Bond never has been one to like violence IMO. He is not the one to start behaving violently. He is reacting to a threat. He does not enjoy shooting guns. Or killing people.

Yes, you might say the same thing about Batman. Still, the universe of James Bond is not that bleak and has always felt not too real IMO. While the Nolan-Batman-universe, despite all its stylization, seems to be one black pit of despair.

Mind you, I don´t blame Nolan for what happened. But maybe it is time to at least think about how people react to all this.

I always found it scary to think that some people identify with villains instead of heroes. Talking about how "badass" films are in which characters cross lines of morality, the badder the better.

And giving those characters too much of a "fun factor" might be a very dangerous path on which those find it easy to walk who don´t see anything else worth living for.

Actually, I'm neither of the first two, and I'm not sure I even understand your third point. Are you saying that Inception is a great film, or not? Regardless, I was let down by Inception, as so many other films I've seen had previously explored similar territory and done a far better job of it, IMO. Yet I enjoyed The Dark Knight Rises. Go figure.

Funny that how real the film is depeicting violence in a modern world makes it easier to fantasize about corraying out similar acts, either if you "wish you could do that after a hard day at work!" etc...but something like 'The Expendables 2 can have heaps of violence and brutality and it'll probably not get a look in, when that has much more than something like 'The Dark Knight Rises'.

I watched Le Mans (1971) yesterday. Amazing!

First of all, the Blu-ray is of an astonishing image and sound quality. They really upgraded the image and the colors are lively. The sound is simply stunning. The low and high notes of humming engines are brilliant. All in all, a breathtaking visual and sound experiment.

And breathless is exactly what I was during the movie. To think it's 40 years old! That's still the best motor racing movie, light-years ahead of crap like Driven or Days of Thunder. We are here for the race, and the race is what we get. Period. Some loose plot between McQueen and the Lady, in order to please the producers who insisted on having a script, but that's all. The purpose it is to shoot a one man/one race movie. The rest, as McQueen's character says, is only a secondary side-issue.

And boy, those shots are pure wonders! The images shot with embeded camera (used for the first time) are plain stunning, most notably during overtakings when the camera settles in the mufflers of the front car, then follows her on the side in panoramic view, then finally goes into "rear view" mode once the overtaking's done.

Besides, one rather singular effect is the (almost) absence of dialogue. Only 2 things matter: the noise of engines (obviously), and the silences (in the cockpit as in the lanes). Once again, the rest would be useless.

In brief, sheer pleasure which made me not even want to blink even for a second...

GET SMART (2008)

After seeing The Dark Knight Rises I guess I wanted to watch something else with Anne Hathaway, I think these are the only 2 film of hers I've seen.
This film really caught me by surprise.
I thought all the characters were really well developed.
There is a Bond referrence/joke and a parachute scene like from MR.
I can't wait for a sequel if there is one.

Finally saw "THE DARK KNIGHT RISES". I had heard and read so many mixed opinions on this that I did not expect to really like it...

... but I did! I LOVED IT! I actually like it more than "THE DARK KNIGHT". Maybe because amid all the dark and sinister things Nolan actually manages to inject humor again and again - something I never thought he would be good at.

Lovely film. And in retrospect, probably one of the best film trilogies ever.

And this is coming from a huge STAR WARS fan. But let´s face it: RETURN OF THE JEDI was a letdown - so SW only has two amazing films in its original trilogy.

THE GODFATHER... well, of course, the first two are great. I don´t hate part 3 at all (as it is common etiquette) but it is not really great either.

BACK TO THE FUTURE... well, I love them all - but the first is brilliant, the second very good and interesting and the third nice and easy. But none of the sequels approach the greatness of the first one.

THE LORD OF THE RINGS... yeah, yeah, I liked all three films... but the third one at times feels to me like a greatest hits package of the two before it. And the many endings (I´m not saying there are too many since they actually wrap up so many characters) diminished the impact of the film as well.

I´m not even counting THE MATRIX (great first film, boring second and third films).

So... the only franchise with three parts consistently thrilling and not repeating itself (too much) has to be the Nolan-BATMAN IMO.

I once again watched Serpico (1973) yesterday.
God, it's such a treat to watch an excellent movie like this one!
With an superb score (Serpico's theme is one of those that stick in your head, like the Godfather waltz), but which is not omnipresent in every scene, contrary to current movies where you can't have 5 seconds without music. With a really talented direction that's able to generate feelings in an instant through clever angles or through soundless scenes. With extremely well written characters with great depth and contradictions. With brilliant actors, Pacino being plain wonderful.

Hot Tub Time Machine - Been a while since I last seen it. Still funny two years later. Better than The Hangover in my opinion.

The DaVinci Code extended Cut - I've been wanting to see this cut for a long time now. I thoroughly enjoyed it as I felt it went more in depth than the standard cut. A great film nonetheless.

TED

Even after cocktails this film disappointed.
All the really funny lines, I'd already heard on the TV trailers.
Closing my eyes, TED's voice was of course Peter Griffin. If only the 'action' had matched up to the laugh a minute 'Family Guy'
For goodness sake it was meant to be a comedy; these is no need to put a realistic and meaningful storyline alongside a foul mouthed drug taking live teddy bear.

Sorry, unlike THE DICTATOR it failed to score.

However, the line about the parsnip was inspired:)
