well the dark knight you kind of have to create yourself what you think happened, add in the details yourself. l like the leg that lands on the ground when kurt russel hits the girls car.

I disagree with the Dark Knight entry - I think the point of the Joker is that he`s so drated up and hate filled that, while he`s fine dying at any minute, he wants to do as much damage as possible before he goes. So he has plan after plan after plan. I`m sure he had more plans after the boats, or other plans in case one failed. He was also fine with just being shot in the face by Harvey.

Shooting someone in the face is not a better way to end it, whatever happened to fancy decapitations?

I think that the guy who wrote this didn`t really understand the POINT of the Joker`s character in the new Christopher Nolan films. The joker doesn`t HAVE an solid plans, he just "does stuff" and "goes with whatever happens" one of the things that makes him INTRUIGING IS the fact that he doesn`t even know what half of his planning is going to ammount to...

He even says something to this effect to Dent in the hospital. Or, we can at least summarize it in a way by the dialogue there.

i watched cube 3 and liked that one but it was a cube with 4 dimensions which had timetravel and different realities and other random things in it which made it enjoyable in my opinion it also had a slight story line which helped

cube was a masterpiece - of course, you need to appreciate that kind of movie to really enjoy it.

`It would consist of a guy shooting someone IN THE FACE. Face shooting is absolutely key here.`

whilst listening to R&B and shouting at them to cooperate

It would consist of a guy shooting someone IN THE FACE. Face shooting is absolutely key here.

Glad I`m not the only one who thought the plot of The Dark Knight was drating stupid.

I visit cracked everyday anyway, so there`s not much of a point (to me) to post the cracked links.

I agree with whenislunch. Go ahead and make a batman movie without all of the awesomeness the joker does. I must admit I haven`t been too happy with batman movies recently but I have to say you wouldn`t have super hero movies without it. If you want to know how he did all of that shi* my answer is it`s Gotham City. that`s why.

The writer seems to have missed the most important part of movies: THEY`RE MOVIES!! Have you ever heard of suspension of disbelief? Of course these things would never happen in real life, but thats the point! People watch movies to escape real life. It`s like complaining about Mario games because in real life, solid platforms can not float in mid air. Really, imagine a movie written by the person who wrote that article - it would be about 5 minutes long and would consist of a guy shooting someone and then getting arrested.
