Remember When…

Remember when…

The Pirates were a perennial losing franchise?

Remember when…

Bob Costas’ pretentious Olympian superlatives weren’t pretentious because they were about baseball, something the man truly loves?

Remember when…

I mocked Sarah Palin’s mocking of Obama’s proposed “hopey-change” politics?

Remember when…

Everyone discounted the Cardinals’ playoff hopes with three weeks left in the season?

Remember when…

The GOP wasn’t an absolute joke?

Remember when…

Christopher Nolan’s Batman franchise was the greatest thing that ever happened in comic book film history? (WARNING: Major spoiler alert with that link)

Remember when…

NBC didn’t ruin every single sporting event it broadcasted?*

Remember when…

US American politicians really worked for the people?

Oh, wait.

Remember when…

Clint Hurdle was orange?

And remember when you didn’t hate me ‘cuz I was right?

Peace,

Jeff

*Not including the XFL, which was a brilliant endeavor, even if it was extremely stupid.

I actually loved the Dark Night Rises. I chuckled over the review only because for most points they brings up, my inner comic book geek is thinking, wow, this reviewer never read the source material did they? Beyond that though, Citizen Kane, arguably one of the greatest movies of all time, hinges on reporters dissecting the cryptic last words of a man…who dies alone. Yeah, I know there’s that whole interview scene with the butler who says he also heard Kane say rosebud once before, implying that you didn’t see him, but he was in the room, but I really find that thin, tacked on and unsatisfying if I dwell on it. And in the end, it doesn’t matter. The movie is still brilliant, groundbreaking and, you get the general idea. Now, I am not saying that the Dark Knight Rises is Citizen Kane, or even anything close to it, just that, although friends and family will laugh if they read me writing this, it is possible to over nit pick the fun right out of some things. :)

In my opinion, the holes in the story were so cavernous and some of the dialogue so ridiculous that it was extremely distracting and irritating. Nolan’s first two films were solid, character driven masterpieces that were solid and no fluffy. This one had so much garbage and random stuff that had no place in the story that I was falling asleep. I was extremely disappointed and I stand by that ;-) Here’s another excellent review that backs up my feeling. http://ourmaninlosangeles.blogspot.com/2012/08/the-dark-knight-rises-no-so-much-for-me.html

We take our Batman seriously :-)
