When you take a man and turn him into an idea, he becomes a legend. When you take a movie franchise and turn it into a legend, it ends up generating one of the most epic podcasts of all time. And after much anticipation on everyone’s parts (including our own!), we’re pleased to present our dedicated podcast for The Dark Knight Rises.
Recorded on the same day we both saw Christopher Nolan’s cap on the Batman trilogy, we sit down with fresh memories of the movie and talk about what we loved, how so many of the ideas and concepts in the movie were beautiful constructed over the course of the three movies, and how The Dark Knight Rises managed to provide some serious pay-off.
We look back at our original skepticism on Anne Hathaway’s casting as Selina Kyle and laugh at how foolish we were. Then we look back at Joseph Gordon Levitt’s casting and find ourselves a little puzzled. Jay admits to having some problems with the ending, we look at some of the parts that don’t add up…
But through it all, we cap off a legacy with a detailed look at why The Dark Knight Rises is such a brilliant, spectacular piece of cinema. And while it’s certainly not the perfection piece that The Dark Knight was, we can certainly agree that TDKR is what it needs to be… one of the best endings in any trilogy in a long, long time.
Put on your pajamas and grab a cup of warm milk, because Episode 37 of Remember When is about to take you into the world of dreams.
We kick off our show with our latest “Great Movie Jay Has Never Seen”, discussing the 1980’s camp film “Dreamscape”. It’s been a quarter of a century since the movie was released in theaters, and Dennis Quaid’s hair has certainly improved since then. But whether or not Jay’s going to be able to appreciate this piece of nostalgia after all this time is questionable. Listen in as he talks about the bad decision he made with the movie, as well as why he’s not kicking himself over it.
Then we dive into the Dream Within A Dream, talking about Christopher Nolan’s latest cinematic release, “Inception”. Written and directed from the muse behind The Dark Knight and Memento, this film has critics raving and audiences walking out of their theaters in wonder. We sit and offer our opinions on the film, offer our opinion on the ending (and why its various interpretations help the film achieve its brilliance), and rave about the newfound appreciation we have for Tom Hardy. We also talk about what we think was lacking in the film, and how a second viewing should be mandatory for anyone seeing it.
Finally, we wrap up the show with some talk about our TV viewing habits of late, our thoughts on True Blood… and could a hulking be in the mix?
