If you haven’t already figured out, this site is focused on explaining why the movie “The Dark Knight” (2008) sucks. Part of the reason for putting this site together was to counter the seemingly unquestionable hype surrounding the movie. The viral marketing campaigns, the massive buildup, the fanboys… all leading so many movie-goers to pause [...]
How awesome would it be to see Superman and Batman in the same movie together?
Well guess what? Unless the franchise is taken out of Chris Nolan’s hands, it will never happen.
You see, that’s because in the “trying to be super-real” Nolan world of Batman, everything has to be believable as being possible within reality. Now, [...]
On Yahoo’s homepage today, there is a news article from the Associated Press titled “Biggest ‘Dark Knight’ Gripe” with a subtitle of “Batman’s Flaw” which leads to the article titled “Monday Movie Buzz: Bale’s Batman voice too much?“ All it talks about is Bale’s voice.

I was laughing with my buddy today about the rottweiler scene near the end and how farcical it was overall. Firstly, it was funny how in a movie where the lead villain happens to only carry knives for weapons, Bruce Wayne just happened to want a newer costume and the new one Lucious gave him [...]
At times when Lieutenant Gordon, played by Gary Oldman, was talking, he could barely be heard due to being drowned out by the music score. Music in movies at times can be great, especially when it enhances the story-telling and helps drive an emotion home. There are instances in TDK where the score is so overwhelming [...]
Clearly the goal of the movie was to be realistic and therefore have storylines and themes that could be plausible in reality. Nevermind that it’s a movie based on a comic book character and doesn’t need to qualify itself that way to be entertaining, it’s clear that’s what the intention is and if that’s the [...]
