Forum Post: "The Dark Knight Rises"..... the anti-Occupy Wall Street blockbuster

Tonight at the most prestigious theater chain in Hollywood, right in the heart of Hollywood on Sunset Boulevard, the legendary Arclight Theater, will screen the anti-Occupy Wall Street blockbuster "The Dark Knight Rises" no less than 15 times before 1 a.m. They can check out the 12:01 a.m. showing ... or the 12:05 a.m. showing ... or the 12:06 a.m. showing ... or even the 12:10 a.m. screening. That's plenty of ways to watch Batman (Christian Bale) square off against Bane (Tom Hardy), a revolutionary using the kind of class warfare rhetoric OWS brought to the public discourse to take down Gotham City. The city's famously liberal dwellers may be shocked to see the year's most anticipated film includes an all-out attack on their precious 99 percent club, the same one President Barack Obama and former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi embraced so heartily last year. They probably won't like seeing their ideology cast as the latest Bat villain, nor their already discredited plan to use Bane as a stand-in for Mitt Romney fall apart. They'll simply bite their collective tongues as the ticket money starts rolling in.

I'm happy that you get such a kick out of comic-book heroes; fits you to a tee.

Steve Martin ‏@SteveMartinToGo

I am sure the NRA is holding an emergency meeting to try and figure out just exactly what to do about assault rifles.

Ira Rather ‏@irarather

@SteveMartinToGo The NRA wants to sell MORE rifles. According to their logic, more weapons in a dark, chaotic theater means more safety.

I think it's remarkable to see a major studio film that actually portrays a revolutionary scenario and talks about class warfare, which are two things that almost never appear in capitalist pop culture (at least not since the crisis of the 1970s when there was more space for social critique in Hollywood cinema). The Dark Knight Rises seems to acknowledge systemic inequality and injustice, even if it portrays a demagogue hijacking legitimate grievances. That being said, the politics of the film are pretty muddled and can certainly be interpreted as conservative. Here's my take, FWIW: http://tropicsofmeta.wordpress.com/2012/07/23/the-specter-of-revolution-in-the-dark-night-rises/

Pentagon did not support the production of the Avengers movie

one would think with all the Manly Super Hero's and military equipment

this movie would be ideal of recruitment and positive military PR

the official reason stated was

We couldn’t reconcile the unreality of this international organization and our place in it. To whom did S.H.I.E.L.D. answer? Did we work for S.H.I.E.L.D.? We hit that roadblock and decided we couldn’t do anything [with The Avengers].

http://www.reelz.com/movie-news/13837/the-pentagon-does-not-approve-of-s-h-i-e-l-d-or-the-avengers/

I'd wager the military did like the fact that S.H.I.E.L.D. was willing to sacrifice civilians with a nuclear bomb to solve an invasion problem.

and they don't want to open a discussion as to

how many civilians are already killed by military bombs

What come up for air already? Did you breathe in enough of your personal storage of methane to last you awhile? Sounds like it from your current rant - unhinged - sloppy - unbalanced - flight of fiction. Be sure to breathe some fresh air for awhile before you complete "your" circle of life again.

Here you go..."Unless" ,"rethuglicans"

You're such a fucking lying piece of shit,you are already blaming Mitt Romney and the Republican party. You're pathetic little names is just bullshit. Look if you're a Democrat,a Liberal Democrat and you seek to blame the Right for this and everything else just have the balls and backbone to just say it instead of cloaking your feeling in pathetic labels.

I calls em as I sees em. The truth is ugly and painful sometimes - deal with it then try to make the world a better place. Or go move to Egypt and get a place overlooking the Nile where you can live in denial happily in your own little make believe world.

I am not a democrat - I am a people-ist - I will support anyone who is for true health and prosperity for all.

Currently it is mostly independents and democrats who are displaying these qualities - show me a republican that is doing the same and they will have my support as well.

But it is also not blind support for any individual or any party - it is support for good issues or opposition of bad issues.

Try to get a grip on reality - asshole.

[-] 0 points by destructo (-26) 1 year ago

I loved to watch you "Liberals" morph into "Progressives" now are you morphing into a "people-ist"?

Anyway you label it you're a POS Leftist who partially if not wholly is responsible for helping to program and propagandize people to do things like this....Occupy has been ginning this up for last two years. Hope you're happy with the results.

[-] 0 points by DKAtoday (33128) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

I claim nothing for others - though you seem to have no problem with doing that yourself.

Not happy with the results so far but we are making some progress on OSTA - Removing corpoRAT personhood - removing money from politics - ending fossil fuel subsidies - promoting green technology - promoting health care for all - getting the wealthy to pay taxes in support of our country etc etc etc

A nutter is a nutter and "you" can not place the blame of a nutter on anyone but the nutter.

"can not place the blame of a nutter on anyone but the nutter"

Try telling that to all your kneejerk Leftist drones that are right now calling for greater gun control. Blaming the GUN instead of the "nutter". Do you see the inconsistency and hypocrisy? This is your dilemma,will you embrace reality or instead go grabbing guns in a hysterical rage instead of blaming the "nutter"???........That's what you Leftist's do.

[-] 2 points by DKAtoday (33128) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

Not at all - what I see is you trying to deny reality - that guns in everyone's hands without regulation is a cause/opening/opportunity for mayhem.

Worse you try to blame an honorable movement for the despicably horrible actions of a nutter.

[-] -2 points by destructo (-26) 1 year ago

Not at all - what I see is you trying to deny reality that guns are already extremely regulated and not everyone wants a gun or has a gun.

It's the Perp not the GUN. Bottom line,if you can't differentiate than you aren't as smart as you make believe you are.

By Steve Eder

Associated Press

The gunman who opened fire in a Colorado movie theater shortly after midnight Thursday was armed with a rifle, a shotgun, and two pistols, officials said.

While much remains unclear about the shooting – which took place 30 minutes from Columbine High School where 13 people were shot to death in 1999 - it is likely to reinvigorate the debate over gun laws.

In Colorado, as it stands, people are allowed to have handguns in their cars, businesses, and homes, according to the Colorado State Patrol.

Here are some highlights from the State Patrol’s primer on the state’s gun laws:

Colorado allows people to “possess a handgun in a dwelling, place of business, or automobile.” But they cannot “carry the weapon concealed while transporting it into your home, business, hotel room, etc.” Colorado allows a person to carry a firearm in a vehicle, loaded or unloaded, if its use is for lawfully protecting that person’s property or another person’s property. Concealed weapons permits can be obtained in the county in which a person lives. Colorado prohibits gun registration.
