Film Review — The Dark Knight Rises


This film features Christian Bale (Empire of the Sun, The Mechanic, The Fighter), Michael Caine (The Ipcress File, Alfie, Last Orders), Gary Oldman (Tinker,Tailor, Soldier, Spy, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, Immortal Beloved, Dracula),, Anne Hathaway (Get Smart, The Devil Wears Prada), Marion Cotillard (Midnight in Paris, Inception), Morgan Freeman (Driving Miss Daisy, Million Dollar Baby, Shawshank Redemption) and Matthew Modine (Full Metal Jacket, Short Cuts), so the cast payroll must have been enormous.

Anne Hathaway is very thin. If I were her mother I would get her into treatment.

There were a lot of explosions.

I forget the rest.

About aharmlessdrudge

Way back during the late Bronze age -- actually it was the 1950s -- all of us in high school had to take a vocational test to determine our interests and, supposedly, our future careers. I cannot remember the outcome, but I do recall one question that gave me pause. "If you were to win a Nobel prize, would it be in literature or in physics?" I hesitated over the question: although I enjoyed mathematics and science more than English class, I did have a couple of unfinished (and very bad) novels hidden away at home. I cannot remember what I chose back then, but the dilemma followed me to university, where I switched from mathematics to English and -- after a five-year stint in journalism -- back to mathematics. I recently retired as a professor of statistics. Retirement. What a good chance to revive my literary ambitions. I have finished a novel -- more about that in good time -- and a rubble of drafts of articles about mathematics and statistics is taking up space on my hard disk.
