Not impressed!!?? Did you just see a man in blue spandex flying? And you're not impressed? Who are you? Chris Angel? Normal people who sees a man flying in the air will naturally be impressed, hence you are not normal.



Superman is NOT Emo! Maybe Clark Kent, but Superman is not! Superman maybe a voyeur (See Superman Returns movie i.e. Lois Lane apartment scene) but Emo he is not. In fact, the more Emo Superman becomes, the less emo he is. Superman Birthright and Superman Origins show that Superman has human roots!

People like you who don't like this trailer should zip it, or I will breakdown your comments once again! This is the greatest trailer ever made! This is also the greatest movie ever made even if I haven't seen it yet! People like yourself aren't entitled to an opinion! If you think it's emo then you're just a Marvel fan!






I don't know why there are some fans whom are butthurt about a person's opinion that they'd feel they have to give a sermon telling why they're wrong.

That said, I still think this movie is too Emo.

@Graviton

The Dark Knight Rises wasn't as tight as it's predecessor, so in that regards I guess it's a disappointment. But I didn't expect it to be as great as that film.

Few films are that caliber. TDK Rises didn't have near the amount of silly moments as the Marvel films. Hell, the concept of Thor in of itself is beyond silly. Him and his not so subtle gay, sexually repressed brother.

You freely admit yourself that you follow RT scores. Rises got a very high 80% ranking, no?

All movies have what can be considered plot holes. ALL OF THEM. You can comb over with a fine tooth comb and find SOMETHING in every film. It's about the suspension of disbelief in order to tell the story at hand.

Nolan's films far exceed doing this compared to the Marvel Studio counterparts. You actually agreed with me about this ... that's why they are easily the elite films in the genre.

Bane plays his version of chess as well. Dude executed his entire plan, broke the protagonist physically, before being stopped at the last moment.

A lot of the issues raised in the "honest trailer" review can be explained, some facts they got down right wrong, or issues that can be explained with simple logic.

One of the complaints in that "honest trailer" was literally that Bruce Wayne had a depression beard. Can't you articulate your own issues with the movie, without giving a youtube link to a video channel whose entire purpose is to make people laugh?

Reading some of these threads reminds me that I am in fact a comic geek.

Either that or I'm not picking up on some sarcasm by you guys.

To the Watchmen movie I am not a fan of the GN really. Like I understand that it's good, and why it's good but I wasn't really enjoying it. I personally thought the movie was alright. There were some good and even great moments but it never really did enough to stay above decent for me.

@Money

I would type my issues instead of the video, but my PS3 allows limited sentences. In short...

Yes, Bane had a plan but it was all on Talia's orders, he was just a goon. When Bruce got out of the hole and faced him, Banewas shocked at how his brilliant plan failed. Joker strategized 50 steps ahead and even in the end he won, he corrupted Harvey, forced Batman/Gordon to spread the lie. He was victorious, he showcased that even Batman/Gordon aren't above using lies and deceit to fool their people just to protect a maniac. Joker's plan was flawless, he took over the mob, scared the cops, and showed that no one is truly "clean". Bane's plan was just brute force, but when Batman came back and he faced resistance, he had nothing. His plan was just the physical destruction of Gotham, but the psychological damage Joker had done stayed with the city even after all those years. As a Villain, Joker was in another dimension, he was a true genius of terror and understood how to truly break people and their hope.

The comic may have been ahead of its time when it first appeared, but he movie sure as hell didn't.

Bad acting, bad directing, cliche scenes (shitload of them), pretentious from the get go.

I wanted to love this film, was very disappointed.

what was cliche?

to me the entire film was the complete opposite of normal Super Hero films...

you want to know what cliche is? the villain stabbing Batman in the side and describing her entire master plan to him before he could die...THAT is cliche

Watchmen? the Super Hero's die...one right at the start...it was then shown that he killed a woman pregnant with his child...One is the Heros is 1000x more powerful than the rest...a nuke goes off...etc...it was anything BUT typical

Yeah, what the hell is up with villains revealing their master plan when dealing with protagonist with a history of always coming out on top in the end? Its like how Jack Bauer always figures out the plan behind the plan behind the master plan that no one else seem to be able to notice. You start to wish villains would just stfu, at least until their plan actually goes through.

Old comic book trope. They make fun of it sometimes because it was, and continues to be prevalent in the genre.

I recently watched Dark Knight Rises again on PPV...I found it to be much worse than I remember

starting from when Batman walks up to Gordon on the ice, lights up his flaming bat symbol until then end, is just filled with cringe worthy scenes.

the entire giant melee fight...a giant fist fight (while everyone has guns) is almost like something from the old Batman TV show

Bane and Batman magically find each other in the center of huge fist fight

the stabbing in the side while telling Batman her whole master plan

Cat woman saves the day complete with cheezy one-liner


That whole scene is so awful, it damn near ruins what is really a great movie...I wish he would redo the end, because it really isn't good at all.
