Kung Pow: The Rise of Betty

Posted in Whatever with tags , , , on 07/01/2014 by Taylor Holt

Kung-Pow: Enter the Fist may be one of my favorite comedies of all time. Partly because of my love for old kung-fu films but also because bad dubbing is hilarious. Here’s a Betty from Kung Pow dubbed over Bane from The Dark Knight Rises

MBTI: DKR’s Bane- ENTJ or ISTP? Intuitive VS Sensor

Spoilers Ahead! But how could you not have seen this movie yet?!

As one of the most quotable villains in recent movie history (Maybe ever, we’ll see), Bane had many viewers quickly forgetting the Bane of 1997’s Batman & Robin and many typists thinking a definite extravert regardless of what he was in the comics.

His theatrics, his bravado and his sheer power with actual brains to control the muscle, he had to be an ENTJ right? Maybe even ENFJ some might say. But the ending seemed to change everything about his character. When we realize he wasn’t the brains behind the operation, but simply the well defined muscle. Continue reading

MBTI: DKR’s Bane- ENTJ or ISTP? Intuitive VS Sensor Part II

Spoilers Ahead! But how could you not have seen this movie yet?!

Continued from PART I.

In the comics, ESTP is my initial thought for Bane, being a conqueror type and all but upon closer inspection, he’s got more going on in his head than his body would lead you to believe, with no offense to ESTPs.

So you could argue that ESTPs would put the body before the mind and ISTPs put the mind before the body. Not to say whatever is secondary is superfluous to the user, but when priorities are taken, something will have to come in second. Continue reading

What to Expect from The Dark Knight Rises

Posted in The Dark Knight Rises Stuff, Whatever with tags , , , , on 07/17/2012 by Taylor Holt

I’m not usually one to place too much faith in a film. I usually go with the idea that while I want it to be good, I stay with reality in case it turns out to be terrible. Then there’s everything in between. Last year’s Drive was great, while Captain America wasn’t too bad, and then Tekken: Blood Vengeance was a miserable disappointment to me as a Tekken fan. Man, I was really looking forward to that one too. With that in mind, I’d like to feel some sense of cautiousness toward this Friday’s Dark Knight Rises…but I just can’t. I was one of the naysayers who didn’t care for the casting of Heath Ledger as the Joker, but look what we got. I expected it to be a decent film, but the end result was a little better than “decent.” I wasn’t sure what to think of the Inception trailers, but dang it, I love that movie now.

So now with Dark Knight Rises on the way, I feel it’s not only safe to this is going to be a great movie, but possibly Christopher Nolan’s best. This, along with the fact I believe Nolan to be one of the best directors of all time, we could be getting a classic with DKR. I honestly don’t think that’s expecting too much. Nolan himself has been quoted as saying that DKR is the “biggest [film] anyone’s done since the silent era.”

Here are some things to look forward to.
