4 Tin: Vok io, For Studoiits, Hy Students Eiitertaiiimeiit and Food August jOI'j The Summer Box Office Hits By Cimmeon Q. Terry The Dark Knight Rises The most anticipated film of the summer didn’t fail to deliver. Arguably, “The Dark Knight Rises,” is the best movie of the year. The hard part is finding someone that would disagree. As of August 14, the movie grossed $394.6 million. The performances of Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway and Tom Hardy gave a most prom ising depiction in the finale of this Batman series. Bale brings this Batman series to a phenomenal close. Just as the “Lord of the Rings” and the “Pi rates of the Caribbean” series, seeing the past Batman films of this series would ties loose ends. The story starts eight years from the aftermath of the events of “The Dark Knight”. The city is still re covering while Bane (Hardy) is planning the worst for Gotham City, all the while when Bat man is nowhere to be seen. The young and attractive con artist. Cat Woman (Hatha way), posing as a wait ress at Bruce Wayne’s dirmer party, is caught ' iP iP ■ n by Bruce himself trying to steal his late moth er’s pearl necklace. One would think that the man who’s secret identity is Batman would be more clever to apprehend Cat Woman, but his leg is nearly broken just as his spirit, and she escapes. As Bane’s evil plot unfolds, Bruce decides to get himself back in the su perhero swing of things even though Alfred (Michael Cain) advises against it. On his journey to save Go tham, Batman finds ultimate truths about himself, his allies, and who his true en emy is after all. Captivating from beginning to end it will leave many questions and the desire to see more. A solid 10 out of 10 is what I rate this film, as it was nothing less than an excellent conclusion to an epic series. Condolences to the victims of the Au rora, Colorado shoot ing that took place on July 20, 2012. Un fortunately, there are bad guys in real life. THE DARK KNIGHT RISES JULY 20 BAT-BLOG COM Courtesy of blogspotxoill/ ted Mommies and daddies, if you didn’t know, you wouldn't bring this teddy bear home to the kids. Seth MacFarlene’s comedic creation is great fun but NOT for the whole fam ily. Actors Mark Walberg and Mila Kunis take part in a hilarious performance that has taken in more than $211.1 million dollars as of August 15th. After its debut on June 29th, Ted was the trending topic amongst Twitter users na tion wide. Fans of Mac Farlene’s cartoon televi sion series “Family Guy”, “American Dad”, and “The Cleveland Show” should expect this film to be as politically incorrect and sarcastic. The movie starts off with little John Ben nett (Walberg), a boy without one friend in the world who wishes upon a star for his teddy bear, Ted (MacFarlene), to talk and become his real live best friend. The next morning he awakes to find his dream has come true. As years pass, Ted becomes the talk of the town as a prodigy and a living miracle, not to mention his rap sheet grows with time. No famltyduy fnvi mi* wahiberg kunis macfariane ted july 13 matter, what John and Ted remain best buddies and eventually the main plot places John all grown up at the age of 35 and his trusty pal Ted crash ing on his couch John finds him self caught in an ultimatum from his girlfiiend Lori (Kunis); it’s ei ther Ted or her. Reluctantly Ted finds his own job and apartment but still cannot help being at tached to his best fiiend. As the sto ry progresses into a mix of partying, drugs, and even kidnapping, John is forced to make the decision of what he really wants. This movie is great if some laughs are needed in your life, but if “Family Guy” is regularly on, then Ted could be a bit pre dictable. I give this movie a 9 out of 10 and recommend the movie ticket and or DVD purchase.
