    Nolan's got an incredible knack of making films that seem to be great when you see them for the first time, but gradually get worse the more you think about them.

    Forget second viewings too - I really enjoyed Inception at the cinema, but rented it when it came out on DVD and it had suddenly turned dogshit.
    I find it incredibly difficult to sit through them more than once, even Memento, which I loved at the cinema, I have only watched once!

    Any films going to be a bit shit if you analyse it that closely. The Battle of Yavin for example would be a lot less entertaining if it followed the laws of physics.

    No.

    There's a world of difference between accepting impossible technology and watching something amazing unfold within it's fictional boundaries, and watching some bare bones plot hung on chop-and-change characterisations, messy hand waving and embarrassing inconsistencies.

    There's nothing illogical about Star Wars. We are given a framework and everything works within it. That's the difference (doubly dumbass for TDKR because it is supposed to be realistic...).

    And +1 to JK's point on Nolan - absolutely hits the nail on the head.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    We're supposed to think that before the ZOMG reveal. Tom Conte spoils the twist.

    Star Wars with it's amazing line "If there's a dark centre to the universe, we're on the planet it's farthest from"

    Yeah? Then it's not the centre is it?

    I think a lot of fantasy and sci fi films are very silly and can easily be torn apart, but the good ones wrap you up so much in the world that you don't want to try.

    True but there are a few hints way before the twist that make it clear that he wasn't the one who escaped. The biggest being Bane's monologue during the back break fight. "You merely adopted the dark, I was molded by it. I didn't see the light until I was but a man, and by then it was nothing to me but blinding"

    "You see it too? For me, it's always like this..."

    There's nothing wrong with that logic. There will be a planet that is furthest from the centre, that's all it's saying.

    100% this.

    I can forgive a lot of of silliness in sci-fi films, as long as I just enjoy them. At the end of the day, I watch films as a form of entertainment, not an exercise in complaining/nit-picking.

    To be fair, this could still be possible if there is the "darkness" at the center of the universe/galaxy and your planet is the one farthest away from the center.

    And wasn't the original quote like: "If there's a bright center to the universe, you're on the planet that it's farthest from." said by Luke to himself in a metaphorical sense?
    ;)

    Anyway, guys, please continue ripping Mr. Nolan to pieces. His movies are quite empty and lacking in many areas under the hood. It's just, aren't people used to that by now from most movies?

    Just possibly that's farmboy hyperbole. Or do you find yourself watching someone say 'this is the worst thing ever' and crushing them logically with a carefully reasoned riposte?

    Because if you do you're a cunt :)

    You're right. Defending a shit script against a simple wind up is being completely level headed :)

    I see you assume that the the planet distribution within the universe/galaxy is symmetrical around the center. Which doesn't have to be the case! ;)

    As I said on the previous page, it tears you out of the movie, which makes it worth shredding.

    As a rule, I dont generally notice continuity errors or minor plot holes, but these were inescapable and really ruined it for me, constantly forcing me to remember that im watching a film.

    Take, I dunno, Independence Day. There is something questionable happening in virtually every scene, but you dont really pay it any attention because it rolls along happily with its own odd internal logic.

    By the technology curve that Jeff Goldblum exhibited it'll presumably be about how he evolved into an electrical lifeform and made all Roombas into his electronic slaves.

    Had a decent, if perverse double bill today

    Hugo 8/10 Not what I was expecting, a very nice surprise, though heartless as it may seem, the lead actor was a bit raw at times, still, awesome.

    Young Adult 8/10 Charlize Theron has really turned into a terrific performer huh? Really enjoyed, funny, mellow, and gut retching all in the same dysfunctional package

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    Rurouni Kenshin live action

    8/10

    Everything's great, although it lacks something. Not sure if it's the villains or I just expected too much...Great movie though =)

  • Deleted user 13 December 2012 07:08:31
    Immortals.


    Not too bad. Not really my kind of film but had some good action and Mickey Rourke is always awesome.

    6.

    Wishmaster: 7/10

    Has some pretty groovy practical effects: jaws being torn off, insides being ripped out, etc.
