what I most hate about it (although there's actually a whole list) is that the message is basically "do what you're told and good things will come to you". Fuck that.

Pitch Perfect -- tons of fun. Only problem was some forced jokes in the script.

If you notice brother stitch, no rebuttals.


Here are a few more masterful fuck-ups:

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
At the beginning, the fucking CIA doesn't bother to remove the hood and see who they have? And, whoa is me, its Bane? Ha ha ha ha ha. Fuck me that's bad film making.

Batman disappears for 7 years, so does Bruce Wayne? Robin goes Bruce Manor to announce he knows, and like, he's the only one?

Bruce Wayne is in that pit and keeps fucking up the climb out, when plummeting down, the rope around his waist snaps him hard as shit, with his back all fucked up, um, he was just fine??

Bane is like a super terrorist but just has to get at this mysterious fusion reactor... I mean yo guys... why not fuck the bullshit and just get a nuke from N Korea??? Needs to come up with this elaborate bullshit to get at something that any nuke could do? Just stupid.

Some little girl was able to escape that pit but Bruce Wayne can barely do it?

And there is a nuclear device ticking down, world in turmoil but the motherfucker announces he's in town and has time to make a bat signal with gasoline? Drama, anyone? And Batman knew about the bomb and went to get into a fight with Bane out of nowhere? How did he even know where the brawl was? (and dont forget above: guns and missiles everywhere but everyone decides to 42nd St it??)

Like, at the end, Batman was stabbed and shit and seemed perfectly fine to save the world.

And my favorite! Where the fuck did the motorcycles come from at the stock exchange?? Like, were they in the lobby like Zip Cars?


Oh nelly... some of you really do drink the Kool Aid. TDK was an epic piece of shit.

Why did the machine guns in Dredd damage the blast-door-shielding-thingy and one high explosive shot could then blast a giant hole in it?

I think TDKR was alright. Yes, some irregularities, but that often comes with such a plot, imo.

Some? I could name 60 more. I just posted a few of the worst. My favorite is the 42nd street brawl. That was so comical I actually laughed out loud.

Another couple of doozies:

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
How the fuck did the stock exchange scene turn to night suddenly when Batman shows up???

That Bat chopper... um it appears out of nowhere in that alley when the cops have him surrounded.... but like, a crowded city like gotham, and like, well, like, not a single person in that entire city noticed him land it there so he could use it later? Wow.

This hell hole of a prison was supposedly in shadows and Bane could see in the dark. That shit looked pretty bright in there to me.

That prison was such a torturous hell hole that nobody could bear it but somehow, out of sheer luck for Bruce Wayne it was WIRED FOR CABLE TV and in ENGLISH in some unknown land???

This was a good one: the cops are underground for all those months but somehow are all clean shaven? Ha ha ha... GTFO... ya, I get it, Bane provided razors!

Bane is so strong he hits a wall and breaks the concrete!!

Another favorite: seconds are ticking and he has time to suck tongue with Anne Hathaway (fuck I'd have tapped her and let the bomb go in a blaze of glory, but) --- total bullshit.

And.... ta da.... at the end.... Bruce Wayne is a famous billionaire and nobody else recognizes him at that coffee table?


Like I said... rebuttals welcome.

I'm not so sure the brawl was that unrealistic. I mean, what are you going to do with a semi automatic weapon in a brawl? Friendly fire will happen. They started out shooting, then finished by brawling. Just imagine archers shooting their bows at each other in close combat, wouldn't work out so well either. It's not like it were 10vs10, but more like hundreds vs hundreds. Also, if they just had shot, it would've been only the front line who could've pulled the trigger, ruining the dominance in manpower the police force had (IIRC).

b1os, come on man, you cannot be serious.

Like, 4,000 cops running strait at you with none of your bad guys near them BEFORE THE BRAWL and you wouldn't even consider the idea of 'oh snap got me an AK lemme lawnmower a few of these clean shaven fucks before they get too close'??????????

Ha ha ha. Come on man. It was idiocy.

Just watched the Flaming Lips docu Fearless Freaks. It was infuriating and I should have turned it off when I realized the film was being made by Wayne Coyne's friend...

The movie was 90% Wayne, whose contribution toward any of the quality music the Lips have made is basically nil. Fine, whatever, but apparently hes a narcissistic jerk and kept referring to the bands work in the first person. E.g. "when I make an album."

NO. That band has been the Steven Drozt show for the last decade, and nowhere in the film did I see Coyne acknowledge Drozt's genius when the jerk has done nothing but ride his coattails.

Mmmmmh. Say Dark Knight when you do it big boy.

BTW... the 'its a movie' excuse died decades ago. Rebuttals welcome. None forthcoming? I officially declare TDKR a piece of shit.

That's unfair to pieces of shit.
