  1. Everything is more awesome with the Inception trailer music.

    Including Inception.

  2. I LOVE NOLAN112

  3. Nice to see some props to RedLetterMedia. They’ve got a great production.

  4. While I think many of the questions raised in the Honest Trailer video were valid, I can’t help but wonder how many movies (especially blockbusters) could actually survive the level of scrutiny that The Dark Knight Rises has been subject to.

    • Agreed. If Nolan hadn’t claimed that this was a Batman “based in reality”, then people wouldn’t care. How does a jet car drive up a building? How can someone surf out of an airplane? I would address all the claims of this “honest” trailer, but that would be boring and beside the point. All one has to do is simply think through some of these claims to get the answer. However, one thing I wonder is how Batman doesn’t get shot when he’s in the middle of a group of baddies… I guess it would make a horrible movie if he did though.

  5. NPH is awesome

  6. I was hoping for more from the Hobbit trailer with Inception music… Still it did make it much more dramatic and Inceptiony…
