Five Things I Learnt From The Dark Knight Rises


  1. Batman may or may not be the ultimate superhero, but he gets the job done- no muss, no fuss.
    I'd want the strong, silent protector in my corner over obnoxious Spiderman (the Garfield era, not Maguire) or mouthy Iron Man every day of the week.
  2. If Tom Hardy ever loses his looks, the world will weep.
    The man is nothing without his pretty face. That mask was a travesty.
  3. Everyone should have an Alfred.
    Ok, let's be real here. Bruce Wayne would not exist without Alfred. The man raised him, kept his secret, maintained Wayne Manor and loved Bruce as if he were his own son for his entire life! Alfred's understanding of who Bruce is at his core is something everyone should experience in their lifetime. See also: Comissioner Gordon. I love me an unsung hero.
  4. Let's all go to Florence right now.
    Going into the film, I expected no more from the location than the typical grey, dreary, crumbling Gotham City. Instead, we're treated with glimpses of the beautiful Italian city as the haven for our hero and his nearest and dearest, and once again, my wanderlust is fired up.
  5. Joseph Gordon-Levitt should be in every movie ever.
    He often gets overlooked in favour of one R.Gosling, that other hot twenty-something serious ac-tor (say that in your fancy voice), but JGL can BRING IT. You need a sweet leading man? An unassuming hero? A conflicted cancer sufferer? A solid right-hand man? He'll do it all and make you fall in love by the time the credits roll.
