The Dark Knight Rises - Rant/Review with Jonathan Holmes

The Dark Knight Rises - Rant/Review with Jonathan Holmes

Playing tracks by

Tobbii Karlsson and Jonathan Holmes.

I was interested in why Jonathan Holmes from Destructoid.com didn't like The Dark Knight Rises, as I wasn't that big on it either, so I asked him to talk to me about the movie for an hour. If you don't like rants, don't listen to it, we don't mind you disagreeing, but you'll just waste your time and get annoyed. This is for people who wanted details on our thoughts, and that's it.

I enjoyed how you guys deconstructing the movie, and pointing out plot holes I wasn't aware of. Even with its flaws I still think it was a fine movie. Even though you two didn't like TDKR at the very least it's fun movie to have a discussion about.

Also, I didn't say "No Plot" I said "Not much plot", way to put words in my mouth.

Except everyone wasn't lovin it when I came back from the midnight release, I had nothing to prove and you obviously can't just accept we disagree with other people.

@strife00
It's pretty clear you didn't even listen to the podcast, or completely ignored what we were saying. The little plot there is in this movie is repeated in the same movie, most of it was even in Batman Begins, and that was one of the major complaints we have, there's not enough to fill out 2 Hours and 45 minutes. I can suspend disbelief just fine, that's why I like the other two Nolan movies a lot, like I said in this very podcast. And it's not a dumb complaint, they clearly establish that it's impossible for anyone to get in or out, you're telling me Bane has complete coverage on everything, except if one guy who looks like the richest guy in town walks across the ice? Really?

i really get the impression you guys are hatin cause everyone else is lovin.

No plot? Now you're really stretching it. I think it's pretty clear you guys had a negative feel going into the film. If you can't suspend disbelief for a superhero film, you shouldn't be watching them, period.

Also, that's a dumb complaint as well. He's the goddamned Batman, if you need shit like that laid out for you like a dinner plate then you're grasping too much. Chances are if he can stand on the ice in his Batsuit, he could have made it across somewhere else, or he's got a secret cave, or anything. You're trying too hard, sorry.

"your complaints don't seem very plot oriented"

Really? We had troubles the plot, it's just that there's not much plot there.

And no, we should be able to complain about that since he was simply Bruce Wayne with not access to anything at all at that point, then all of a sudden he's Batman and got into the impossible-to-get-in-city, it's a big flaw in writing.

Ehh, your complaints don't seem very plot oriented. They seem a bit more focused on how you would have wanted it to be or something, that's not the films fault.

Plus, it's Batman. If you're going into the film to complain about little things like how he gets into the city without being noticed, you probably need to loosen up a bit.
