Tag: Christian Bale
Going to the midnight showing of the Dark Knight Rises tonight. My summer long mission of not watching any of the tv spots or trailers (after allowing myself one viewing of the first full trailer) or reading anything about the films.
As much as I dig trailers, I’ve decided that when I know I want to watch a movie, why spoil the treat? And Christopher Nolan doing the finale to a truly epic Batman trilogy with Anne Hathaway as Catwoman & Tom Hardy as Bane? I can’t wait!
I recently rewatched Equilibrium, which came out some ten years ago. It’s basically the Matrix meets Farenheit 451 meets George Orwell’s 1984. Sadly Equilibrium’s NRA friendly form of hand-to-hand combat “gunfu” did not catch on. Equilibrium is a quasi-forgotten sci-fi actioner that’s good but not great, fun but not brilliant. It features pre-Batman Christian Bale before his career took off and Taye Diggs before his career went AWOL. Oh, and Sean Bean. Gotta have Sean Bean. For those who missed it, check it out, for those who saw it relive the memories.
kee-dokee, Snark-a-Maniacs, it’s finally here, the overdue conclusion to my epic, 4 part Top 20 Favorite Films of All Time Countdown. (That’s 1 more part than Tolkein needed for the Lord of the Rings, thus I believe this list the superior product.) For those who came late, the complete, previous articles are 20-16 here, 15-11 here, and 10-6 here.
The films are:
20. L.A. Confidential (1997)
19. The Bourne Supremacy (2004)
18. The Three Amigos (1986)
17. Star Wars: A New Hope (1977)
16. The Untouchables (1987) (continue reading…)
