Some days you just can't get rid of a bomb.
Mortal Kombat was worth five, everything else was just gravy.
I really like David Graeber's take on the hyper-realistic comic book movie genre, and why it reached an apex of incoherence in TDKR*. Basically, the chief conceit of the superhero genre is an utterly passive and apolitical population, which did exist in America for roughly the 1980's through early 2000's. Hence, making superheroes 'realistic' wasn't such a stretch. This was an historical anomaly, though, and Nolan tackling actual populist movements like the Arab Spring/OWS led to an absurd mess.

Why is this not the real movie? Bane would've been so much more endearing.
God I wish this was the real movie.
I am Gotham's reckoning...for their dietary habits.
