I love The Dark Knight. I don't think anyone was more excited about the DVD/Blu-Ray release than I was. Hell, you should check out my room (Four Dark Knight posters, and a life-size Joker stand-up). Maybe I'll take pictures of them later, but anyways! I'm a huge fan of the film, and when I popped in the Blu-Ray last night I was thrilled to finally see the film on my television screen.
That being said, there are some unexplained moments in the film that I just don't get. Here is a list of some of them, maybe you guys can explain!
Scene #1: "A Little Fight In You I Like That..."
Let's go through the scene. Rachel hits Joker, Joker laughs as he is ready to get at her, then all of a sudden Batman appears...out of thin air. When I first saw this I asked myself "Where the hell did he come from?" or "Is the Joker blind as hell?"...that could explain the eye twitches. I don't think it's either. Perhaps Batman is one slick guy, very subtle, and sneaky. To come out of no where, with no one seeing you is a crazy accomplishment. Kudos to Batman, you're one sneaky guy.
Scene #2: "Hahahaha...I Got A Shoe-Knife!"
Alright, Joker and Batman have a huge brawl after Batman comes out of thin air. Joker then pulls out his handy-dandy shoe-knife. Can someone explain how these shoe-knives work? I never understood the concept, because shouldn't the knife accidently come out while he's running around fighting? Nope, apparently one good stomp brings it out. This has been used in a lot of movies, but I just don't get it! Hopefully one of you Spillios can tell me how it works!
Scene #3: "No, But I Know How You Got These!"
Alright, lets go through the scene. The Joker has Batman pinned down. Batman uses his handy gadget given to him by Fox: those arm, little, spiky... things (I don't know the proper name for them). They shoot out at the Joker's face, and then Batman pushes the Joker off the building. When we first saw this gadget, I remember Bruce hitting a button or something of that nature with his hand. So how did he shoot them at the Joker while he was pinned down? Maybe the gadget also reads the mind and obeys!
Scene #4: "We Got Em', He's Out Of The Game"
Okay, in this scene Batman has to fight off the SWAT teams because Gotham police are dumb and don't notice the clowns are actually hostages. When they think they got Batman cornered, Batman kicks one of the SWAT members off the building, and since the SWAT team is connected with a cable they all fall down. Batman gets a smooth get-a-way to go battle the Joker on the top floor..this sounds like a video game. The thing I don't get is this: what is keeping the SWAT from falling? I watched the scene a few times and don't see a pole or anything keeping them from falling. If anyone can inform me that be great.
Finally: One Weird Thing...
Last but not least, is it just me or does the Mayor look like he wears Mascara? Just look at those eyes...the eyes of a Drag Queen.
There you have it, moments I can't explain from my favorite movie of all time. If anyone has some good explanations just let me know!
