I think he can hear you, Ray.


Personally I got more from TDKR than I did from TDK. Nolan kind of not giving a poo poo loosened him up a bit more, but then I'm not all that keen on his trilogy to begin with. I think his desire to make a comic book movie and to be *profound* are at odds with eachother.

A comic book movie can’t be profound?

Anything can be anything. But trying to achieve something isn't the same as getting there and the more that Nolan tries tying his stories to real world concerns (Occupy Wall St. Surveillance overreach) the more it crumbles because he doesn't have anything he wants to say about them, nor do the movies.

Quick story to show how reliable Grace Randolph is: she claimed she had it confirmed by sources that Kathleen Kennedy was going to be pushed out of Lucasfilm. When this didn't happen and Kennedys contract got renewed, Randolph claimed that while Disney wanted her to go, they were unable to find anyone to take over so they had no choice but to re-sign her.

Consider how ridiculous that idea is. That in Hollywood, a town noted for ruthless personal politics, they 'couldn't find' anyone who wanted to take over at Lucasfilm.

Basically she appeals to the crowd who tweet at Rian Johnson years later.

My most enduring memory of ENDGAME is one of the Russos, who isn't Gay, played a Gay man in the support group scene and had one line about how he missed his husband and everyone involved pat themselves on the back over this 'representation'.

Can't believe that guy is raging about a piece of direction he got years ago.

I have no interest in people who watch a movie solely to post their Twitter gags.

The problem is that way too many people are associating 4:3 with pan and scan videos.

It's a very simple and obvious observation if you're at all familiar with his body of work.

Just not the work in question.

When did Batman's arbitrary and nebulous no killing rule start applying to every superhero ever?

Can someone please change my username to UNTITLED SNOWMAN COMEDY? Thanks.

There's a lot of really lovely behaviour from WB in all this, not just their insinuations that really Fisher is being manipulated by Snyder into getting back at them.

Credit to Fisher for seeing through WB and their 'investigation' from the start. And there's no sadder demonstration over how boneheaded those people are than with the whole "Booyah" incident.
