  Christopher Nolan bids farewell to The Dark Knight
Posted by: Mike on Jul 24th, 2012 2 Comments »

In a recent interview with Christopher Nolan, he big farewell to the franchise that’s probably made him enough money to retire. (Though I doubt he will stop making films just because he has an epic pile of cash stored away.)

Here’s what he said, courtesy of ComingSoon.net:

“Alfred. Gordon. Lucius. Bruce . . . Wayne. Names that have come to mean so much to me. Today, I’m three weeks from saying a final good-bye to these characters and their world. It’s my son’s ninth birthday. He was born as the Tumbler was being glued together in my garage from random parts of model kits. Much time, many changes. A shift from sets where some gunplay or a helicopter were extraordinary events to working days where crowds of extras, building demolitions, or mayhem thousands of feet in the air have become familiar.”

“People ask if we’d always planned a trilogy. This is like being asked whether you had planned on growing up, getting married, having kids. The answer is complicated. When David and I first started cracking open Bruce’s story, we flirted with what might come after, then backed away, not wanting to look too deep into the future. I didn’t want to know everything that Bruce couldn’t; I wanted to live it with him.”

“I told David and Jonah to put everything they knew into each film as we made it. The entire cast and crew put all they had into the first film. Nothing held back. Nothing saved for next time. They built an entire city. Then Christian and Michael and Gary and Morgan and Liam and Cillian started living in it. Christian bit off a big chunk of Bruce Wayne’s life and made it utterly compelling. He took us into a pop icon’s mind and never let us notice for an instant the fanciful nature of Bruce’s methods.”

“I never thought we’d do a second – how many good sequels are there? Why roll those dice? But once I knew where it would take Bruce, and when I started to see glimpses of the antagonist, it became essential. We re-assembled the team and went back to Gotham. It had changed in three years. Bigger. More real. More modern. And a new force of chaos was coming to the fore. The ultimate scary clown, as brought to terrifying life by Heath.”

“We’d held nothing back, but there were things we hadn’t been able to do the first time out – a Batsuit with a flexible neck, shooting on Imax. And things we’d chickened out on – destroying the Batmobile, burning up the villain’s blood money to show a complete disregard for conventional motivation. We took the supposed security of a sequel as license to throw caution to the wind and headed for the darkest corners of Gotham.”

“I never thought we’d do a third – are there any great second sequels? But I kept wondering about the end of Bruce’s journey, and once David and I discovered it, I had to see it for myself. We had come back to what we had barely dared whisper about in those first days in my garage. We had been making a trilogy. I called everyone back together for another tour of Gotham. Four years later, it was still there. It even seemed a little cleaner, a little more polished. Wayne Manor had been rebuilt. Familiar faces were back—a little older, a little wiser . . . but not all was as it seemed.”

“Gotham was rotting away at its foundations. A new evil bubbling up from beneath. Bruce had thought Batman was not needed anymore, but Bruce was wrong, just as I had been wrong. The Batman had to come back. I suppose he always will.”

“Michael, Morgan, Gary, Cillian, Liam, Heath, Christian . . . Bale. Names that have come to mean so much to me. My time in Gotham, looking after one of the greatest and most enduring figures in pop culture, has been the most challenging and rewarding experience a filmmaker could hope for. I will miss the Batman. I like to think that he’ll miss me, but he’s never been particularly sentimental.”




  Man of Steel Poster
Posted by: Mike on Jul 20th, 2012 2 Comments »

ComicCon always has some gems every year.  One of this year’s is the Man of Steel poster, for next year’s reboot of the Superman franchise.

It looks a lot like the folks that did the last couple of Spider-man movies (before the reboot) had something to do with it.  It still looks pretty badass though.  Check it out below.

  Oz, Great and Powerful Gallery

Disney released some new images from the upcoming Oz, Great and Powerful and asked us to share them with you.

Check them out below.




  Oz, The Great and Powerful Trailer
Posted by: Mike on Jul 13th, 2012 1 Comment »

I love James Franco.  I love Mila Kunis.  I love Michelle Williams.  I’m not sure I love this trailer.

The trailer itself is very well made, I’d go as far as saying gorgeous. But the movie itself concerns me a bit.  How do you mess with such a classic movie such as The Wizard of Oz?  I get that this isn’t a remake, or a sequel. But these are characters that we know and love.

What do you think? Are you excited for this?

  A Theater Version of Netflix?
Posted by: Mike on Jun 29th, 2011 Leave a Comment »

Have you ever thought “I would go to the movies every single day if it wasn’t so expensive?”  I know! Me too!  Have you ever thought “I wish there was a Netflix like service but for movie theaters?”  Me too!

We’re all in luck, coming soon to a mobile device near you – MoviePass is a new service that is “coming soon”.  For $50 a month you can go to unlimited movies at participating theaters, just by opening the app and “buying” a ticket to the movie. Then your phone acts as your ticket to get you entry.

What’s the catch?  $50 a month is quite a bit, unless you plan on going to at least one movie per week.  The other catch is that IMAX and 3D movies are $3 additional to the theater.  Not a huge deal, but still a catch.

MoviePass is currently in development and is only slated to initially be released in the San Francisco area.  I, for one, am hopeful that they’ll do extremely well there and expand out to the East coast as quickly as possible.  I’d go to two movies a day if Christine would let me.

Apparently I have a sudden interest in MovieSnobs again.  Whether or not you find that to be good news, I do.

I’ve been doing some updates to the site behind the scenes, making things faster and easier from a management standpoint.

One of the public facing changes we’ve made is to our RSS URL.  As of right now, the RSS feed address has changed to http://feeds.feedburner.com/moviesnobs, due to some changes on Feedburner’s end.
