Christopher Nolan has finished the script for his next movie


I fucking hated Interstellar. To the point where I wonder if Christopher Nolan has peaked. And yet! I can’t help but get excited when I hear he’s finished the script for his next project.

Cosplay: CATWOMAN from ‘THE DARK KNIGHT RISES.’ Meow! Or something.


Hnng. Yep. Yep, yep, yep. The Catwoman thing continues to scramble my brains. Almost two years after the movie dropped. Still. That lipstick. That leather.

Butcher Billy goes full NOLAN x BURTON on the ‘BATMAN’ movies.

Froggy fresh.

It is safe to just crown Butcher Billy as the hotness in the community at the moment. What community? Shoot, every community? Hot off of inserting classic Marvel art into the company’s movies comes this newest effort. The Nolan and Burton mash-up we don’t deserve. The one we need.

BANE wants you to wash your goddamn car.

I”m still enjoying amusing riffs on Bane’s overwrought dialogue from The Bruce Wayne Climbs. Even if I am the only one, no fucks given! I’ve been known to cut a rug on the dance floor by myself.

DAVID CRONENBERG calls ‘THE DARK KNIGHT’ movies boring, verbally impales the genre.

Well shit. You have to hand it to David Cronenberg. Dude isn’t afraid to come out of the gate spitting hot fire everywhere, mercilessly mowing down pop culture sacred cows. Even though I disagree with the dude, fuck it. He has earned his place in my heart, and even if I disagree I have to respect the man’s musings.

The Dark Knight Rises – It Rises, It Rises, It’s Risen, It’s Here

[Caff note: spoilers abound in the post-article comments area. You were warned. As well, Omega-Level sends out love, thoughts and best-wishes to everyone grappling with the DKR midnight shooting tragedy in Colorado]

How is anything supposed to follow The Dark Knight?  Nolan’s trilogy ender will reap enormous numbers of attendees and box office dollars solely based on people wanting another TDK.  Another round of dark, violent and unpredictable chaos in Gotham.  Another villain as jarringly memorable as Ledger’s Joker.  And another story that transcends comic roots and becomes lovingly embraced by the mainstream as a ‘crime saga’.

This might hurt your appreciation of Rises as it nearly did mine.  In so many ways, this film feels like a direct sequel to Batman Begins.  It notably takes the few elements it needs from the trilogy’s second chapter – Harvey Dent’s ‘legacy’, Rachel’s death and Bruce’s need to pass the mantle on – and forgets about the others, rejoining the stream Begins established seven years ago.

It’s awesome that the film feels like a much more appropriate bookend to Nolan’s trilogy in that regard.  My fear was that the runaway success and rampant permeation of the Joker and TDK into popular culture would mean that everything about Rises would follow from, and be influenced by TDK, and only TDK.  Not so.  Not so at all.  I’m definitely still a little dizzy off the high of the midnight venture to see this, and I’m sure I missed many more vital connections to TDK, so take his all as a sleep-deprived first gut reaction.

‘THE DARK KNIGHT RISES’: What do you honestly f**king expect?

The Dark Knight Rises drops tomorrow at midnight, amid an avalanche of geek hype. It’s the sequel to the best superhero movie ever made, a movie that featured a once in a generation performance by Heath Ledger. With that in mind, the movie enters into our pop culture psyche facing unfathomably unrealistic expectations. Insurmountable standards.
