I’ll be the first to admit that The Dark Knight had a few plotholes. But the difference between it and Batman Begins is that they weren’t so glaringly obvious that it detracted from what was a damn entertaining movie (i.e., Batman didn’t kill dozens of innocent ninjas to save the live of one criminal — kind of a odd way to prove his point). Still, I can’t begrudge Batman a few of his qualms regarding his latest cinematic escape… although I can I begrudge these guys who made this little video not managing to find a green wig for the Joker. Seriously? You can find a full Batman outfit, but not a green clown wig? Harrumph. Thanks to Matt and everyone else who sent this in. (Via /Film)
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
