I’ve come to realize that movie logic is pretty much a more grown up version of cartoon logic. In a movie or cartoon, just about anything could happen. While cartoons typically gloss over inconsistencies, movies sometimes offer a quick line or two to explain these gaping plot holes. Sometimes, they don’t. While it’s pretty much universally understood that what happens in the movies doesn’t actually happen in real life, we can’t help but nitpick.
Enter CinemaSins who continue to point out film flaws that have been bugging many a viewer since a film’s release. This time around, they point out everything wrong with The Dark Knight. Does this lessen my enjoyment of the movie? No, but I’m glad there’s other people in the world who noticed all this inconsistencies.
Can they do the Dark Knight Rises next and just rip apart Bruce Wayne’s prompt return to Gotham City? Because really, that was messed up.
Remember when I told you about R. Kelly’s autobiography in which he recounts the time he cried at the end of the Notebook? The aptly titled “Soulacoaster: the Diary of Me” also includes another shining moment where Kelly once ran into into Tupac Shakur.
If you’re like me and don’t plan to pick up this literary gem, don’t fret, Jimmy Kimmel has our back. He somehow managed to persuade Gary Oldman (a.k.a. Sirius Black from the Harry Potter) to perform a dramatic reading from Kelly’s autobiography.
I never thought I would ever hear Gary Oldman say “What up, baby?,” and “we’ll just let it do what it do” in a posh, British accent. I may not buy the book, but I would buy the audiobook if Oldman was reading it. It’s just so utterly confusing and amazing at the same time. It probably is the best dramatic reading I’ve seen since Gilbert Gottfried read “50 Shades of Grey.”
OLDMAN FOR ALL THE AWARDS!
Watch the video below:
The official trailer for the new American gangster drama ‘Lawless’ is out and it looks totally wicked.
Set in Virginia during the Depression-era, the film is based on the true story of the infamous Bondurant Brothers (played by Shia LaBeouf and Tom Hardy), two bootlegging siblings who are threatened by authorities who want a cut of their profits.
While I see a couple of parallels between this flick and ‘Gangster Squad‘, it’ll definitely be interesting to see LaBeouf acting in something a little more different than the Transformers movies. I can’t wait to see him broaden his acting horizons!
Set to release on August 29, the film directed by John Hillcoat also features a star-studded cast. Already receiving positive reviews from the Cannes Film Festival, Jessica Chastain, Jason Clare, Gary Oldman and Mia Wasikowska also star in the movie.
It’s a truth universally acknowledged that when NBA players attempt to act it makes you want to shut your eyes, stuff plugs in your ears and pretend you never saw the movie in the first place. Unfortunately these films don’t do very well. FINALLY professional actor Gary Oldman is speaking out against this precious cause with the help of Jimmy Kimmel.
The usually well-spoken Oldman loses his sh*t: “STAY THE F*CK OUT OF MOVIES!” He yells. “You’re not actors, some of you can’t even speak English. You suck. Get it?”
Oldman easily transitions from sane to cray in two seconds, ultimately proving that he’s an amazing actor. Can you do that Shaquille O’Neil? Huh?
Watch it here:
The third trailer for Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Risesproves the movie will be just as epic as we hoped. The movie follows Batman eight years after he took the fall for Two Face’s crimes. A new terrorist leader, Bane overwhelms Gotham City.
The star-studded cast includes Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, Anne Hathaway, and Tom Hardy and will be out on July 20. Oh and of course, Joseph Gordon-Levitt will be the mysterious cop John Blake (swoon).
Other reasons why the clip is badass? It starts off with Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle predicting: ”There’s a storm coming.” This is followed by a series of explosions, including cars, bridges, buildings and trucks. Plus, we get a clip of Batman’s flying vehicle, dubbed The Bat.

I think I’m liking this bromance.
With Academy-award nominated actor Gary Oldman directing Jack White’s American Express UNSTAGED performance, that itself sounds epic and legendary enough.
But after watching the two get into a little play fight in this video, I think I’m sold on their bromance. White even accidentally makes Gary bleed :O!!! Luckily enough, he’s is forgiving.
I wish they would collaborate some more already! Perhaps they can do a song together?
We all know Jack can sing, but so can Gary!
Watch them play fight:
