There's always been a lot of tripping in movies, and man, is it hilarious. People trip all the time. Why, just the other day, I had dropped my backpack on the floor of my apartment right when I walked in, and as I circled back around really quickly I ended up stepping right into ...
Oh. OHHH. That type of tripping. The one with hallucinogenic drugs. Okay, got it. Yeah, that type of tripping is funny, too. And hey, that's in a bunch of movies as well! Like, say, this week's "This is the End." Or so we hear. Get More »
Did you happen to miss all three Christopher Nolan-directed Batman films? Well, congratulations, you're a social outcast who can't be counted on for anything.
Just kidding! You're probably a wonderful person. And good news: Our friends at Screenrant are here to help! They've mashed up all 458 combined minutes of "Batman Begins," "The Dark Knight" and "The Dark Knight Rises" into one handy little three minute clip with all the basics.
So now when your friends get into a heated debate over who was the better villain, between Joker and Bane, you can chime in with an appropriately-placed, context-free tidbit from the video above.

Girlfriends. Gal pals. Sidekicks. Whatever you call them, superheroes just wouldn't be able to rise to their full powers without a love interest — and usually a healthy dose of some smoldering on-screen sexuality.

IMAX cameras. Bat pods. Anne Hathaway in a tight leather outfit. Where does Christopher Nolan get those wonderful toys?
Nolan was behind Warner Bros.' hugely successful relaunch of the DC Comics icon, "Batman Begins," which proved a revelation after the cinematic devastation of "Batman & Robin." After the triumph of 2008's super-sequel "The Dark Knight" -- which garnered buckets of praise, a posthumous Oscar for Heath Ledger, and north of a billion Bat Bucks -- a third and final chapter was inevitable. With all the key players back, it's about damn time "The Dark Knight Rises." Get More »
The name of the movie is "The Green Hornet," but everyone knows that the title character isn't the coolest costumed cat to appear in Michel Gondry's new flick.
That honor goes to Kato (Jay Chou), ostensibly the Green Hornet's driver and sidekick, but also a kung-fu badass capable of delivering the smackdown to evil wherever he finds it.
He's just the latest entrant in a lineup of superhero second bananas who shine as brightly as the guys they back up, so join us as we salute the guys behind the guys. Get More »
