I could understand if it was a Sin City thing where it’s just this dark alternate universe but clearly Gotham City is in the United States. There are scenes involving Japan in The Dark Knight and the President is referenced in the new movie. How could the most highly populated city in the United States (by a whopping 4 million) constantly be under attack/taken over by these masked maniacs? And then be completely ignored by the rest of the country? WHY IN GOD’S NAME WOULD YOU LIVE THERE!?!?!?
Man I was really hoping I would like the Dark Knight Rises despite how impossibly hyped up it was but I was really reaching for things to like about that movie. Michael Caine was great and I have to give Anne Hathaway credit but I was constantly questioning the logic of the movie. I don’t want to spoil anything but there were major plot points of that film that were built on holes. And I really thought the darkness that Nolan’s benched his career on was too understated throughout the movie, all of his big budget films have made up for their inconsistencies by (usually) really nailing down a certain tone, but I never felt it with this one. I really wasn’t trying to hate it but there wasn’t anything there for me to love.
Thank god no one I know was hurt last night. Some of my friends know people who were in the theater but Jesus just thank god. This just shouldn’t happen.
