The original movie The Trip, shortened from a UK TV series of the same name, isn’t necessarily much of a nerdy movie unless UK comedy is your primary field of geekdom. It featured Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon playing versions of themselves, riffing off of each other while on a journey through the countryside. If you haven’t seen it but you heard of it at all, it was probably because of the scenes in which they do dueling Michael Caine impersonations.
Well, there’s a sequel coming – and in this one, they do Dark Knight Rises impersonations. Their Christian Bale, it must be said, is so terrible as to sound like someone else entirely (Marlon Brando, perhaps), but their Caine and Tom Hardy voices, well…let’s just say I’m normally so sick of people trying those voices that you know I’d only share something worthwhile.
Everything could be in ashes…but I don’t think they’ll ever give the Caine-off permission to die.

Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
