“I made a bad judgment call with my material last night & regret making a joke at such a sensitive time. My heart goes out to all of the families & friends of the victims.”—
Comedian Dane Cook • Apologizing for making a poorly-timed joke regarding the Aurora shooting, in which he suggested that the shooter was doing the victims a favor by getting them out of a terrible movie. In other words, a joke you can’t really defend at all. (If you want to subject yourself to it, The Daily Caller has video.) Bad form, bro. (via shortformblog)

SO THE DARK KNIGHT RISES.I have thoughts but they can be summed up as:
Woah, holy Occupy movement batman. (see what I did there?) Banes big speech felt very ‘anonymous’ while also seeming to tout every line or thought or feeling from the movement and the scenes in New York.
Tom Hardy is..just yes.
The Fight Scenes were AMAZING.
Anna Hathaway was a great Selina, I had really low expectations about what she would do with the role and I really really really liked it.
1. Christopher Nolan’s inspiration for this film was A Tale of Two Cities. Banes speeches, the uprising, and the peoples’ court were synonymous with the French Revolution. I doubt there was much thought about Anonymous and their antics when he wrote it.
2. My guess on naming him Robin is that Nolan has said multiple times in interviews that he wouldn’t have Robin (as in the sidekick) in his films. By revealing his name as Robin, this leads the viewer into seeing him as Nightwing instead of just a sidekick. He has already proven himself and can now take up the cowl (or eyemask).
And as for Tom Hardy, I need to get to the fucking gym. ASAP.
“Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) said Friday that the shootings that took place in an Aurora, Colo. movie theater hours earlier were a result of “ongoing attacks on Judeo-Christian beliefs” and questioned why nobody else in the theater had a gun to take down the shooter.”—
