The dark knight
So I didn’t want to see that movie, but then I found out that Eric Roberts, the star of The Killers’ “Mr. Brightside ”music video, played a villain in it and I just had to see what it was like. It turns out he’s great! Roberts really channels that brightside energy as Sal Maroni, a nervous Gotham City gangster who got into tough times after a man in a bat suit made it difficult for him to make a living. So he hires an independent contractor who dresses like a clown (this movie is not just about crime but the gig economy, which is similar) to solve his problem, and it turns out that freelancer don’t actually fret Good health insurance and paid free time – something the movie is a little on the nose about when the Joker (they really call him that! Wild.) threatens to blow up a hospital and some boats, but it does mostly works in context.
It’s really surprising how much Crackerjack director Christopher Nolan has done with The dark knightwhen you consider that no one is really having a good time in it. (Well, a person is, but we shouldn’t be referring to it.) If you are unsure about whether to check out this one, I would carefully recommend that you reconsider because you will likely enjoy it ! It’s true, the “Batman” is a little ridiculous to look at and his voice is incredibly silly, but also: this costume is probably extremely uncomfortable! I wouldn’t be very kind in that either! Something to think about. – –Joshua Rivera

Two years before the 1978 comic film was defined SupermanDirector Richard Donner made one of the most important films in the horror genre: The Omen. Designed in the wake of The exorcistThe story revolves around the birth of the Antichrist … and the two parents who were assigned by fate to raise him. Starring Gregory Peck and Lee Remick as two head-turning adults trying to understand their morbid situation, and young Harvey Spencer Stephens as the creepy, creepy one creepy Damian, Donner finds a way into almost every kind of horror pleasure. There are gruesome kills, menacing supernatural dangers, and a sense of cosmic decryption – thanks in large part to Jerry Goldsmith’s legendary score – that brings an existential cooling to the spine.

Nolans 2006 The prestigeSimilar to a magic trick, it consists (roughly) of three parts or actions. The first part is the exhibition in which we are introduced to the protagonists of the film in the form of two rival illusionists played by Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale in order to become the greatest living magician of their time. The second part is the premise in which things turn sour after a devastating accident on stage and the two men find themselves on a lifelong collision course that turns their professional rivalry into a dangerous blood feud. The third part is the climax where the film captures everything we imagined knew about these characters and turning those assumptions upside down to create the greatest cinematic twist in Christopher Nolan’s career. Oh, and David Bowie is dressed up like Nikola Tesla here. Are you watching closely -TO
