The Dark Knight Rises
Christopher Nolan’s concluding film in the Batman franchise “The Dark Knight Rises” opens next Friday worldwide. I’m surprised that there’s still not a single review on Rotten Tomatoes.

Last night, I put up an article about Twitter reactions to “The Amazing Spider-Man” from Latino Review and Badass Digest. Both weren’t good. The gist of it is if you had expectations for the film, then either lower it or flush it down the toilet. It will disappoint. Online film critics aren’t allowed to post their full reviews, but tweeting about it is ok.

Screen Gems decided not to screen “Underworld: Awakening,” the fourth installment of the vampire series starring Kate Beckinsale, for critics in the U.S. The previous three films scored 30%, 16%, and 31% respectively on the Tomatometer, so they figured why harmed the film’s grosses this weekend with what will probably be bad reviews for the latest film.
