Tom Hardy as Bane

Neither I, nor my friends, noticed during our first viewing, but multiple moments of foreshadowing reveal Another point: within the same anecdote, the man in the pit tells Bruce that Bane was attacked by the prisoners and that the prison’s doctor fastened the mask on Bane’s face to keep the pain at...

Tom Hardy as Bane

Neither I, nor my friends, noticed during our first viewing, but multiple moments of foreshadowing reveal Bane isn’t—and couldn’t be—the legendary child who escapes from the pit: When the man in the pit (who assists in healing Bruce’s back) tells us of this child’s escape, we—through Bruce Wayne—inf...

Re: Repeated Lines

I love repetition in most cases (and in most art like film, literature, poetry, music, etc.) because it emphasizes a point or a theme... It's an extremely useful AND effective way to bring the viewer's, readers, or listener's attention to what the artists wants to emphasize. So, I think it is effec...

Re: The role of Bane in TDKR - just an idea

Perhaps Bane will be like Hannibal Lector in The Silence of the Lambs/Calendar Man in The Long Halloween? Until maybe the final act when he escapes? bane is not a psycho or creepy Although what I know about Bane is limited to wikipedia's information (I haven't read the comics so I have no first han...

Re: Are The Coen Brothers Tackling Horror Next?

This genre is one of the most complicated if not the most complicated scenario in filmmaking. It's a very subtle art (like Hardy said)... it requires a lot of attention in each department because it needs to deliver the usual but at the same time uncommon fear. Fear isn't love, fear isn't hate, fea...

Re: Color Scheme, musical style, and overall atmosphere

In the last scene of the film, after the Joker has wreaked havoc over the city, we see a return of the gritty browns from Begins. Everything Batman did has been undone. The music to this movie is much lighter and grander in parts. The Joker songs however are not, and are very heavy. Just wanted to ...

Re: The role of Bane in TDKR - just an idea

Interesting theory! Yeah, considering he's supposed to be Batman's most intelligent villain, I think it's definitely possible. It would serve as a really cool twist maybe.. Or even if we know this cop/detective is Bane undercover from the beginning, it would still be pretty interesting. I never real...

Re: Plot of TDKR [Speculation]

Yeah but... Tom Hardy is to play Bane and Joseph Gorden Levitt's character is still unknown. And Hugo Strange is probably (well, rumored) going to be played by Robin Williams... The writer got some of the well known facts a bit...well, completely wrong! Other than that ... :roll: UM.... the 'well k...

Re: Christian Bale to star in Concrete Island

I don't know if I should get excited about this. I got really excited about Bale being in The Revenant, but the project didn't get enough funding so he's no longer attatched. And I think I'm in the minority in not liking The Machinist. Bale was excellent in it, but it felt like the whole "I'm crazy...

Re: Plot of TDKR [Speculation]

Hi guys - here's some speculation on the plot of TDKR http://popped-corn.blogspot.com/2011/02/dark-knight-rises.html have a look - someone on the other thread commented that it was 'written by a kid with down syndrome' which was a nice, sensitive comment. I wouldn't be surprised if the film follows...
