    I actually met Neil Gaiman - he came to my school to promote his novel The Graveyard Book.

    Sadly, I didn't know who he was when I saw him. :doh: :waa:

    I wasn't a fan but after listening to more I realised they weren't just mindless ramblings. He always backs up his points with specific examples. Also his infamous rants are quite funny especially for Transformers 3 and Sex in the City 2.

    Speaking of Kermode he tweeted this -

    No idea how to take that. With Kermode that either means he hated it or loved it he wouldn't say that about an ok film.

    Hahaha, on Jon Stewart when they were talking about Bain Capital they showed a picture of Bane. Then they showed the "What are you" clip and he said "Corporations are people too". :lmao:

    I'm ashamed to say that I didn't recognize his name, but I'm familiar with some of his work

    "I feel like I need to see it again before I give a full review... There's a lot going on! I loved TDK but TDKR felt more like a Batman movie"

    I do have that feeling that this film will be the film for fans, while TDK was more the film for general audiences, that's not to say it's exclusive, but it just feels that way.

    He finds points to back up his feelings that he has usually before he even sees a film. The way he insults actors and actresses and uses their previous work to judge a new film is ridiculous.

    No way! Now I'm even more jealous that you get to go to the BFI IMAX trilogy but I have to now settle for a cruddy Odeon LieMax trilogy thursday night.

    I've never really heard him do it with actors. But he does it a lot with directors.

    That's yet to be seen but those in the general audience are gushing over it so far. Albeit, most of those at the advanced screenings and premier were writers/bloggers, other actors, athletes and entertainers (at the present moment).

    Just rewatching the prologue, its never really hit me before but who the hell does Bane mean "THEY expect one of us in the wreckage brother"? It's not the LoS as they threw Bane away.

    Is he a pawn in a larger plan?

    In my opinion, all Batman fans should ignore Devin. That would annoy him like hell!
