The Dark Knight Trilogy - Page 16

I'm fine with Bane's death scene. I think that scene is more about Selina choosing to do the right thing and help others than it is about Bane getting his comeuppance.

This. Because Bane already received it when Bruce beat him and used his own words on him.

Oh, come on, now you I know I've never even had to concede that the Clean Slate program and Daggett's exposition is fucking terrible. I know it is. It's the worst part of the film.

Sometimes I get the impression that the clean slate never was a real thing even in the movie. Of course....I'm probably totally off on that and missing something..

Yes, you are. Bruce presents it to Selina near the end of the film and their final scene implies that he's used it to clear her rap sheet with organizations like Interpol.

I thought what he gave her could've been a tracking device like the one in the pearls. And that's how he found her after he faked his death and her "clean slate" was eloping with a billionaire with the connections to make them both disappear. Just thinking on it too much I guess. What made me start thinking that to begin with was wondering how he had a clean slate program in his possession if he'd just got done hobo-ing his way back to Gotham..

MM is right. Once Batman defeats Bane with fisticuffs and reuses the earlier line, the battle has been won. Everything after that is afterthought.

Yes. That's how it works structurally.

But, as with so much Nolan stuff, it's so INEFFECTIVE because he's such an inept dramatist.

Nolan wants to make these operatic Hollywood epics, but he can only think of them like engineering puzzles. His movies are like skyscrapers built on astonishingly impressive skeletons of steel and concrete that have been clumsily dressed. You kinda have to admire them from afar as monumental achievements in design, but they're not really places you want to spend a lot of time in.

Ehhhhhhh

You like STID and BVS! You thrive on dramatically-inept cinema! As long as the pieces are there, you're more than happy to fill in the gaps.

Nolan is the perfect Bartimeus filmmaker!

Accurate.

I'm torn on Nolan because his ambition and thematic obsessions appeal to me on a deep level. The majority of my favorite movies are preoccupied with memory and dreams.

But the execution of Nolan's dazzling concepts always drives me crazy. His filmmaking, on a nuts-and-bolts level, tends to be clumsy and careless. He really wants BIG EMOTION but doesn't understand how to evoke those emotional currents, which is why he almost always needs Zimmer around to pummel the emotion into his movies. (I quite like Zimmer's collaborations with Nolan, but I have long suspected that a warmer, lusher composer might do better to compensate for Nolan's weaknesses as a filmmaker.)

On paper, Inception is everything I want in a movie. As an actual viewing experience, I find it very frustrating.

FWIW, The Dark Knight Rises is my favorite of his Batfilms, even though it's also the sloppiest. It's just too damn ambitious and crazy. And it has the magic of BANE.

Nolan always strikes me as a lizard who for some reason really wants to appeal to human emotions. Just embrace your reptilian ways, Nolan!

Disclaimer: I love Batman and most comic characters in general. That being said i did not like Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman. The character is supposed to have a intimidating and casual calmness. Where as i always felt Christian Bale was trying too hard and it really threw off the personality. (My personal opinion).
