The Dark Knight Rises (2012)
There Are No Words To Describe This Film's Greatness!!!
I waited in line for nearly 5 hours to see this film in IMAX on the midnight premiere, and waited another 2 hours sitting in the theatre. And OH MY GOD WAS IT WORTH IT!!!
The thing that I always loved about Nolan's Batman films was the reality basis that they had, and of course the great performances in them, as well as the writing, directing, cinematography, visuals, EVERYTHING!!
This film delivers all of those elements of course, but also has a lot of new great things about it.
The film takes place eight years after the events of The Dark Knight, and both Batman and Bruce Wayne have disappeared from Gotham City. After Batman took the fall for Harvey Dent's crimes and disappeared, Gotham has turned from being a chaotic hell hole, to a peaceful place. And now a new unstoppable force, Bane, has entered Gotham with very aggressive plans, and clearly appears to be the biggest threat Gotham has ever experienced.
The performances in this film were excellent. Christian Bale as always was great as Bruce Wayne and Batman, but this was by far his best performance as both, but particularly as Bruce Wayne. This film does happen to contain more Bruce Wayne story than Batman story. But that's because he has been out of it for so long, that he must rise from the darkness and become Batman again.
Tom Hardy was especially great as the masked terrorist Bane. This was probably my favourite performance in the film. Tom Hardy pulls off everything I think Bane should be. He's intelligent, cunning, and so menacing that it quite terrifying. And thankfully, they enhanced his voice. In the six minute prologue, I found him kind of hard to understand in a few lines, but in this, he is completely understandable. And In my opinion, he is the greatest movie villain since Darth Vader in The Empire Strikes Back. Yes, I liked him more than The Joker.
Anne Hathaway was really great as Catwoman. She really does pull off everything about Catwoman, the sexiness, fighting combat, and even emotion. I was a bit skeptical about Hathaway playing her when I first heard, but now that I've seen the film, she really is a scene stealer.
What I've heard a lot of people say was that they didn't like Bane as much as The Joker, but almost everyone agrees that Bane's plan is more creative than anything The Joker did and more enjoyable to watch as it unfolds.
The climax of this film is spectacular. It's great for all of you idiots who just love action, and even greater for people who love quality films. The climax is not just filled with action either, it is also very emotional and dramatic. The last twenty minutes of this film is the closest i've ever come to crying in a film. I truly wanted to cry. And if you are a fan boy of Christopher Nolan and his Batman films, you will also.
The Dark Knight Rises is an extremely satisfying conclusion to the Batman trilogy, and in my opinion, the best of the trilogy and of Christopher Nolan's films in general. There are honestly no words I can describe this films greatness with. 10/10.
The Silence of the Lambs (1991)
My Favorite Film Of All Time
"The Silence Of The Lambs" is an incredibly gripping psychological thriller that leaves you on the edge of your seat all the time. The film is about a very vulnerable FBI trainee Clarice Starling (Jodie Foster) who is sent by her instructor (Scott Glenn) to go and seek out information from a very brilliant and psychotic imprisoned serial killer named Hannibal "The Cannibal" Lecter (Anthony Hopkins) on tracking down another serial killer known only as "Buffalo Bill" (Ted Levine) who skins his victims. Soon after Starling and Lecters interview Buffalo Bill abducts 25-year old Catherine Martin, the daughter of the US Senator Ruth Martin. Clarice soon after tells Lecter that if he tells them who Buffalo Bill is in time to save Catherine Martin the senator will transfer him to a better prison. The acting in this film is superb, Foster and Hopkins have great chemistry together they also won Oscars for there roles. Ted Levine also gives a phenomenal performance, he plays Jame Gumb perfectly. This film has some of the best scenes ever showed on film. the climax of the film of the film was done perfectly it lasts for about ten minutes and it leaves you on the edge of your seat and biting your nails. The very last thing that happens in this film is also don't perfectly and is one of the best endings ever. Overall this film is my favorite film of all time, a brilliant physiological thriller, a must see for those who haven't 10/10
