**SPOILER ALERT**: TDKR Magnificent … And Most Conservative Film Ever

by on July 22, 2012


The Dark Knight Rises is one of the most overhyped movies of all time. And it lives up to every word of that hype. The characterization is first-rate. It is plotted beautifully. The action is spectacular. It ties up the Christopher Nolan Batman trilogy – in fact, it ties up virtually every loose end. There is virtually nothing wrong with this movie. … It is also a magnificently conservative film – probably the most conservative film of all time. It makes the conservatism of The Dark Knight look like the politics of Battleship Potemkin. It explodes leftist meme after leftist meme. …

Spoiler Alert! Spoiler Alert! Spoiler Alert! …

    The most conservative film ever? With so much violence, I’d disagree.

  2. Just saw the movie and frankly it’s probably the greatest movie of the modern era, far surpassing it’s predecessor. One of the main takeaways I took was how dangerous would be the consequences of anarchy if the OWS folks were backed by some heavy artillery. The Second Amendment is more important than ever. Bane and his goons would have been stopped much sooner had some of he regular folks been packing heat. It’s of course a movie and a story so I won’t compare it too much with real life but you can easily relect upon the many what-ifs.
