The Dark Knight trilogy is simply the best three films of the entire Batman franchise, but fans of the Christopher Nolan epic hold the Dark Knight a bit closer to their cowls. It was arguably the most balanced of the trilogy and is still held in high regard five years after its release, although it does have faults that annoy even the purest Batman fan.
So the fellas over at Cinema Sins decided it was time to bring reality crashing down on us in a hilarious four-minute video pointing out every “sin” the Dark Knight committed. They even bring up points you may have missed after numerous viewings, some of which actually make sense. We would spoil the ending for you, but some people just want to watch the world burn.
Check out the clip below and see how many of your own theories you can pick out:
How well do you score? Or were you too busy saying ”Really!” through all of this?
For those looking for a double dose of head scratching revelations, Cinema Sins has covered The Dark Knight Rises as well and we’re guessing Batman Begins is somewhere in the batcave.
So. Any Star Wars Episode VII news today? Glad you asked.
Harrison Ford was in Chicago the other night for a red carpet premiere in his hometown, and WGN cornered him into talking about the latest developments in a galaxy far, far away. So is Han Solo going to be back for more fun and adventure? And is Ford down for the trip?
“I think it’s almost true,” Ford said. “I’m looking forward to it. It’s not in the bag yet, but I think it’s happening.”
Well that’s about as close as we’re going to get to a confirmation. Check out the video for yourself below:
In two days, on February 16, 2013–at 9:00 am PST, the nerd floodgates will open, and a large percentage of geekdom will descend upon the SDCC website, only one single thought repeating endlessly in their fevered brains:
Indeed, the San Diego Comic-Con…our Mecca, our Mothership, our Devils Tower, is upon us once again.
Now, I’ve never been fortunate enough to attend, but from what I gather, Comic-Con season begins with this crazed rush to register for badges…there are millions of foaming nerds who want them, and only about 100,000 available.
Bit of a pickle, yes?
That’s why the SDCC has released this handy-dandy instruction video (below) to help you along with this seemingly brutal registration process. It’s just a simple tutorial–and it doesn’t offer any sneaky tricks that’ll help you get an edge on your rivals (er…fellow con-goers), but it should help prevent some basic registration snafus.
We’ve all watched a show, or movie and seen a prop that made us think ”Man, I wish I could have that.” In the case of die-hard fans, however, they’ll spends hours, weeks, or years crafting their own replica. Their efforts build an even stronger connection to that piece of movie memorabilia they hold so dear.
Some people turn this love – and what many would call an obsession- into a full-time hobby. Often leading them into a career with special effects. One individual,who has done that exceedingly well, is Adam Savage – full-time special effects designer/fabricator and co-host of Mythbusters.
At last year’s XOXO Festival, an arts and technology conference held in Portland, Oregon, Adam shared his knowledge and love for the world of replica movie props and the connection it has to modern society.
Giving highlights to sites like The Replica Prop Builders Forum and his own experiences, this short twenty-minute presentation also revealed some techniques on how to start projects or future businesses of your very own. Watch the video below for the entire presentation.
If you’re interested in more stories from Adam, be sure to listen to his appearance in the Nerdist Podcast from back in 2010. He talks more about building his own movie replicas, including the Blade Runner Deckard gun. He also answers questions on prop builds from the audience. He even does stand up comedy (hilarious, but NSFW)!
Universal Pictures and director Jeff Wadlow have been busy filming Kick-Ass 2 in the Toronto. During production, Jeff himself has been leaking shots through Twitter. One thing he hasn’t leaked we’re the new heroes. Now that the media has seen Christopher Mintz-Plasse in his new Mother F*cker costume, Olga Kurkulina as Mother Russia and Hit-Girl’s sweet new motorcycle people are dying to see Jim Carrey as Colonel Stars.
Thanks to the lax security laws here in Canada we can thank Mr. Will Wong for the video we’re all about to receive.
Don’t worry about all the onlookers shouting and acting up from where Wong was shooting, the stars are all microphoned up so their audio can be fixed up or edited later on. And as for Jim, look at the guy. Give the man some camo, a red, white and blue club and you’ve got one tough looking ex-mafia member turned vigilante capable of kicking the crap out of a riddler.
Also in the video is Lindy Booth and Robert Emms as Night Bitch and Insect Man respectively and both considerably different then their comic book counterparts. I can’t wait how this scene would play out when it’s finally released as some kind of trailer.
Kick-Ass 2, starring Aaron Johnson, Chloe Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Jim Carrey, John Leguizamo, Donald Faison, Robert Emms, Morris Chestnut and Lindy Booth, is scheduled for theaters everywhere June 28th, 2013.

In this installment of the comedic webseries “Rejected Pitches,” produced by Above Average, a bunch of studio suits offer their constructive criticism to Steven Spielberg about his script for E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial. Now some of the commentators over on Blastr didn’t find it that funny, but I’ve read enough about the how the inside track of Hollywood works to know the quai-truth when I hear it. Still, it’s kind of hard to believe though that studio suits would talk to Spielberg this way after the one-two-three punch of Jaws, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, and Raiders of the Lost Ark, but sometimes stupidity doesn’t recognize status. Anyway, watch the vid and post your thoughts below.
Coming Soon has 7 new clips from the upcoming Blu-Ray release of The Avengers. Now, most of these you’ll remember from the movie, including the now infamous post credits scene featuring a certain villain. Clip number 7 though is from the new short “Item 47,” featuring Jesse Bradford and Lizzie Caplan as regular folk who find a very particular remnant of the alien invasion in The Avengers.
So let’s roll the videotape. Prepare to relive The Avengers experience!
The Avengers will be available on 2D Blu-ray Combo Pack, a 3D Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD on September 25th.
At Nerd Bastards were posting new trailers all the time, so we know first hand that a lot of movies looks the same when they’re edited down into 2-minute promo pieces. Oh, and don’t think that Funny or Die didn’t notice. Ergo, the following trailer for Every Summer Movie Ever. In 3-D!
I’m sure you’ve seen the zombie-esque headlines involving a naked man eating another man’s face and another of a New Jersey man who stabbed himself 50 times, cut out his own intestines and threw them at the police. Creepy, right? Upon reading these stories, I imagine the normal immediate reaction is something like: “It has begun. Finally, I can put my chainsaw and shot gun to good use!” – normal for us nerds, anyway. Sadly, the zombie apocalypse has not started. Hell, the CDC was actually forced to address (mostly online) concerns about deadites feasting on the living. Suffice to say, you can put your weapons of facial destruction down (for now). If anything, these wacko stories teach us to be a little more alert. When a maniac comes charging at you… GTFO or do your best Chuck Norris impression.
Anyhow, some resident of Florida (why is it always Florida? Why are they not like the rest of us?), completely forgetting about the whole “fight or flight” thing, thought it would be funny to play off this whole zombie scare.
Vitaly Zdorovetskiy got a buddy with a video camera to follow him, decked himself out as a member of the walking dead and took to the streets in Miami, terrorizing basketball players and folks in parking lots.
It’s a (mostly) funny video involving lots of people running for the hills. However, if you watch closely at the 2:00 mark, you’ll see some hoodlum fire a gun (repeatedly) at Zdorovetskiy.
Damn fool almost got himself shot. The stupidity serves him right. That’s like dressing up as terrorist and running around screaming “dirka dirka” after some foiled plot hits the news.
Ever wondered who would win in a fight: The Dark Lord of the Sith or The Grey Pilgrim? For generations (well, like two), men have searched for the answer to that question, and now the gang behind the Super Power Beat Down have made a convenient web video to answer that question once and for all.
The effects are pretty solid, and its got some high production value in there, but be advised, if you don’t like how the fight turns out, it was the fault of the internet. The results were made via online voting. Like American Idol… with magic and Force lightening. And no singing.

We are vulgar, debaucherous, and funny bastards that pilfer the internet (or interwebz, if you like) for the news you need so that you don't have to. You'll laugh, you'll cry and you'll often shake your fist in an angry fury but your time here is worth the price of admission (which is free for those of you not paying attention)
