MBTI: Commissioner Gordon- ISFJ

Posted in MBTI Guardians, MBTI Stuff with tags , , , , , , on 07/16/2014 by Taylor Holt


Everything about Batman screams danger, confidence, and an unbridled dedication to justice. Everything about Jim Gordon mumbles “Ah, crap. Who’s mess am I cleaning up now?”

Though the ISFJ hates the mess they’re dealing with, what they hate even more is leaving it dirty. Known for their quiet restlessness, it only makes sense that Bruce Wayne’s contact within the police would be an ISFJ. Like Watson to Holmes, Gordon relies on Batman but still carries a heavy load on his own end, never once looking for the credit that should so easily be given to them. Continue reading

Posted in Reviews!, The Dark Knight Rises Stuff with tags , , , , , on 07/20/2012 by Taylor Holt

Stars: Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy

Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of action/violence, some sensuality and language, 164 minutes, Action/Adventure

Compare to: Heat (1996), Inception (2010)

Many critics have criticized the nearly three hour run time, the supposed slow start to a decent finish that isn’t bad but something of a disappointment.

They claim that this is what happens after a director has so many films; he becomes full of himself and creates a long, slow, pretentious letdown. None of those things are true. I’m going to skip even a brief overview of the story so feel free to read with no spoilers. Continue reading

The Dark Knight Rises Shirts

Here’s an awesome t-shirt site I only recently came across called Design by Humans. Normally, had I come across a clothing site that I liked, it wouldn’t have been posted but this one is especially cool. Just recently they had a contest to see which TDKR designs would be printed onto t-shirts. The judges? Producer of TDKR Emma Thompson and Christopher Nolan himself. It’s pretty interesting to see which ones they chose while you can also see the prints submitted but not picked. Here’s a link to the winning shirts and below are a couple examples. Good stuff.

Appropriately titled “BANE.”
