    Quentin Tarantino always picks great music for his movies. I also like the songs David Fincher uses when he has Trent Reznor producing the music.

Auto-pilot or not, he was in the cockpit seconds before it went off - Batman or not, he should be dead. It is impossible for any human being to survive a 4-megaton explosion (IIRC) at that distance.. If they had used the Batwing from "Returns" we could have imagined that it was traveling at supersonic speeds, and Batman had at LEAST 30 seconds and somehow stopped moving entirely due to atmospheric drag. Even then, at around 4 miles, he'd be pretty fucked. But in this rendition, he's in a glorified helicopter. He has zero chance of survival given he was in the cockpit with under a minute left. Zero.

    Even if the Batwing submerged and he had already ejected, if he were already in the water, the damage would be immeasurably worse, as his lower half would have been violently torn off even several kilometers out from ground zero.

    Also, the radioactive fallout from an offshore detonation would still cause severe problems for the city. To me, that was like WTF? It was about as bad as Abrams' Star Trek's supernova threatening an entire galaxy... like.. wtf?

    The assumption that the audience is as dumb as the director is astounding.

    With all that said, I still think DKR is a great movie, not better than DK, but way better than Begins.

    For the record, The Dark Knight Rises was fucking awesome and if you didn't enjoy it... That's your issue. Great ending to a great trilogy. None of the the films are without melodrama or plot holes, but I look past them because they tell a good story, and well. I don't feel like any of the movies has a particularly worse suspension of disbelief.

    Also, Die Hard 5 is terrible. I went in hoping it'd be fun, but it was boring and the whole movie was based around a cliche and badly written relationship that honestly didn't pay off all that much. Even the closing shot was poorly framed.

    Finally got around to seeing Flight.

    I thought it was done very well. They did a good job of getting you to still root for Denzel even though you know he is POS and the ending was enjoyable.

    Those boobs for the first five minutes of the movie was worth it as well.

    I believe Tarantino does it himself.

    I haven't seen the new Die Hard and I don't plan on seeing it. But I have a feeling it's a transition movie to retire Willis from the franchise and have his "son" (I don't know the guys name) take over Die Hard movies.

    It's not that I didn't enjoy it, but rather that it just wasn't very good. The Dark Knight had some plot holes, sure, but nothing so ridiculously glaring that it makes the entire story seem ridiculous like Rises has.

    And again I bring up the fact that simply liking a movie does not mean it has to be a good movie. I love tons of bad movies, but the difference is that I recognize that they're bad and love them anyway. I liked The Dark Knight Rises, but it was certainly a bad movie, whereas Batman Begins and The Dark Knight were both good movies that I liked as well.

    I just don't really understand why no one is willing to call out Rises for its bullshit. You gain nothing by defending the ridiculous and constant plot holes that filled the movie, so why defend it at all? Why not just accept that you enjoyed a movie that was poorly-written, melodramatic, and riddled with plot holes? There's nothing wrong with that. I love Face/Off, but I don't try to talk myself into it being a good movie. I know it's ridiculous and terrible, but it's hella fun and sometimes that's enough.

    You would be 100% correct. At the end of the movie

    *spoiler in white*

    His name magically changes from Jack to John... No freaking idea why they would call him Jack for 80 minutes of the movie, and then call him John for a couple. Anyways the entire movie was about the kid "becoming a McClaine". Terrible "story line", and not a good/believable action movie either. Easily the worst of the DH series.

    I, for one, didn't like A Good Day To Die Hard all that much... I can get past McClain's inability to die or get incapacitated, but there was just nothing enticing about the plot. Bad guys hate Americans, want to pull a big job, McClain (and now his son) get in the way of it. They almost die several times, but ultimately win. End of movie.

    I just watched 'the man who knew too little' with Bill Murray and the dad from the OC. It was a classic 90's comedy of mistaken identity 6.5/10

    I don't call it out because there is no reason to.

    TDKR isn't any worse as a film than the other two from an objective standpoint. Batman Begins' main threat to the city is a magic machine that can turn water into vapor... Except in human bodies right next to it. And the cool villain, scarecrow, gets tazered just when he starts acting cool and disappears until a bit part in the next film. It's still a really good movie but there are issues you have to look past.

    And even The Dark Knight had similar issues. You wanna know how Batman escaped a nuclear blast? The same way the Joker was the only one to get out of the MCU unscathed. Again, TDKR has issues and plot-holes, but not much more than you need to look past for the other movies. It's still a great movie from a narrative, action, and visual perspective so why can't I like it for being good?

    When I like a bad movie it's usually because it's funny or I turn off my brain and suspend my disbelief to infinity. Not the case here.

    Re-watched the Jerk recently. One of my favorite comedies ever. The movie starts with Steve Martin saying "I was born a poor black child."

    The idea that a movie can be "objectively" bad or good is oxi-moronic. Art is totally and utterly subjective. It's probably the most subjective thing in the world.
