Batman Begins was unprecedented. The Dark Knight was astonishing. The Dark Rises is merely… brilliant. At least, that was my first thought after seeing The Dark Knight Rises (not in IMAX, unfortunately, but that’s neither here nor there). Then I thought that maybe I felt that way because, even after seeing Batman Begins, the brilliance of The Dark Knight was completely unexpected and that, this time, I was expecting brilliance and getting it came as no surprise.
The Bat and the Cat – working together?
This Means War is a truly bizarre mash-up of bromance, romantic comedy, spy flick and Bugs Bunny. Tonally, it’s all over the place and, frankly, it makes sense only infrequently. Prior to its release, I could say with confidence that I had never actually felt guilty about liking a movie. Now, I’m flummoxed.
Four-part mini-series The Take [Encore, Fridays, 9/8C] is an explosive crime thriller that feels like a fusion of The Sopranos and Shakespeare.
Warners announced, this morning, that Anne Hathaway has been cast in the role of Catwoman in Christopher Nolan’s Drak Knight rises. In the same announcement, Tom Hardy’s role was revealed to be Bane, the luchador-masked, super-steroid-pumped villain who broke Batman’s back in the comics.
“I am delighted to be working with Tom again and excited to watch him bring to life our new interpretation of one of Batman’s most formidable enemies,” Nolan said in a statement.
