That's really cool. Had no idea the Joker make up was so inspired by Francis Bacon's style.

No wonder Jack's Joker liked his art

It's really interesting hearing a filmmaker speak about other artistic influences, especially something as traditional as fine art painting. I find it fascinating that for being such a Francis Bacon fan, his films aren't more David Lynch-like in terms of visual distortion and nightmare. The way that he's inserted the Bacon influences in his films (claustrophobic and mysterious atmosphere and plot) is quite subtle.

I wonder if he was influenced by Rene Magritte for Inception. After watching Inception, I went on a complete Magritte blitz in my local library.

I mean, I guess most of you thought it was a reference to B89, but I figured there must be a reason he was going directly to the source.

With 2013 being a bad year for blockbusters, Captain Phillips director Paul Greengrass gives his thoughts on the matter:

"I feel it's an incredibly hard job to make global filmed entertainment."

"There have been a round of movies that haven't worked lately, but it's not so long ago that we were feasting on Dark Knight and Dark Knight Rises. You can't expect that every one of these films will be a Dark Knight Rises or an Inception or a Bourne."

Well for films in general, 2013 has been one of the strongest, if not THE strongest year ive seen. It's been incredible. But for blockbusters, i think a lot may have dissapointed people but it's been pretty decent. It's just because they feed us too many trailers for each big movie now, so the hype is too big to live up to, or they simply put too much footage in these trailers.

Man Of Steel, Pacific Rim, Wolverine, Elysium, Iron Man 3, Star Trek, Thor, Hunger Games, Fast 6. You may even say that Gravity was considered a blockbuster because of the experience.

That's a lot. As for good ones? It's all subjective. I didnt like Iron Man or Fast & The Furious but i enjoyed the rest to some extent.

Well I was going by what's said in the article. There was a lot of talk about the "summer of doom" (financially speaking), and besides if you compare the films, there is a drop in quality.

Going from these:

Avengers
The Dark Knight Rises
Skyfall
Looper
The Amazing Spider-Man

to the likes of:

The Lone Ranger
Pacific Rim
After Earth
Man of Steel
Iron Man 3
R.I.P.D.

I'm not saying that all the blockbusters in 2013 are worse than the ones last year, but overall, this year seems a bit of a let down, especially after all the hype about the trailers.

Maybe it's just bad luck that the superhero team-up movie combining various film franchises, a Bond film - Skyfall, a Nolan Batman film which was following TDK ( a cultural phenomenon), and a Tarantino film - Django Unchained, all happened to be in the same year.

Anyway, this is all slightly off-topic, it was nice to see Greengrass mentioning The Dark Knight Rises there. As for that picture of Bale - that should have been the final scene of TDKR when he's looking at Alfred lol.

Depends if you count Gravity or not. If you do, then the only good "blockbuster" (as in PG-13, mass-marketed global box office hopeful) to me was The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. I don't think Frozen counts as it is a family movie.

But yes, Iron Man 3, Star Trek Into Darkness, Man of Steel, The Wolverine, The Lone Ranger, Pacific Rim, Thor: the Dark World, etc. were at best forgettable. So, I think we got lucky.

I enjoyed Star Trek but there was a lot of lame **** going on, and people genuinely disliked the Khan stuff. Pacific Rim had fun fights, but it was a crap story with bad acting. Thor was a lot better than Iron Man, but after i saw it the second time it just felt a lot cornier.

Id say Man Of Steel was the blockbuster of the summer but Hunger Games was the blockbuster of the entire year.

I guess 2012 had it better when you look at Skyfall, Avengers, Dark Knight Rises and Amazing Spider-Man.

But that's why i dont pay too much attention to the "blockbusters" of each year. It doesnt matter to me. I care about the films we're getting outside of that. Outside of the box-office numbers, explosions, etc. And 2013 might be the best year for cinema ive seen in a lonnnng time.

This year was absolutely lackluster in regards to blockbusters. I've started cutting TDKR some slack, because while TDKR is flawed it definitely kicks the ass of any big movie that came out this year.

Most blockbusters are just pure crap. Greengrass knows this. He's being nice to fellow filmmakers That's why the rarity is not that films can't measure up with TDK and other stuff . The rarity was that those films were made in the midst of so much crap , and they ended up being successful.

Yeah, 2015 is going to have like a dozen massive franchise blockbusters. It's crazy. But i bet like 2 of them are any good. And who knows HOW good they will be.
