I am going to smile at every stranger/acquaintance/friend I see today and wish a good day to every person I talk to because the world needs more good in it and as a human being, I have the distinct opportunity to make a difference
I wonder if Tom Hardy was ever so grateful that Bane had to wear a mask at all times. He doesn’t even have to worry about facial expressions.
I doubt it. That man had more work to do with just his eyes that any other actor on set did with their entire faces showing. If he was sad it had to show in his eyes, anger, only his eyes, laughter, his eyes. Every emotion that crossed Bane’s face was all done in the eyes. Most people can not do that with their entire face.
When Bruce Wayne smiled Christian Bale had his whole face to work with. When Miranda was shocked she had her whole face to show it. Tom Hardy did not have this to work with.
If you look you can see amazing amounts of emotion in Bane’s eyes. From the sadness at the end to the dead look he has before killing someone. This is not something most people can do at all.
I challenge you to try and see if you can pull it off.
Therefore I don’t think that there was a second that Tom Hardy was glad that he took the role of the masked man so that he could slack off in his acting skills.
If anything I think that he would be grateful that he did and for the chance to enhance them. He did a better job than I think most people could have done.
Didn’t think about that aspect. Although at some points it seemed like the “dead, murderous look” of Bane was just in his genetics. I obviously have to go watch this again.
For the first time in the series, we see Mike hesitate in a choice he has to make: to abandon his daughter at the park with the cops closing in or trying to reach her and forcing her to watch him be taken away, all the while knowing the entire purpose of his meth venture, his granddaughter’s inheritance, was robbed from him…again. Then the impact of his leaving the park without his granddaughter hit me right after the show ended. While he was sitting near the river, he must have been thinking about his choice to abandon her, and how his choice resulted in the fact that he’ll never say goodbye to her. He kind of died like a warrior, with the tall grass, the river, and the sunset. But he died at the lowest of lows. Everything he’d worked for and everything he’d planned all accounted to nothing.
Just learned that my mom made my dad sell 3,000 Apple shares at $30 in 2004 and give up another 7,000 when he quit to actually take care of me and my sister. Way to go, mom, you could have actually gotten what you thought dad had the entire time with your four exorbitant lawyers.
“I want all these young people to be getting a higher education, and I don’t want them loaded up with tens of thousands of dollars of debt just to get an education. That’s how we make America great.
Of course, that means all of you all have got to hit the books. I’m just saying. Don’t cheer and then you didn’t do your homework.
Because that’s part of the bargain, that’s part of the bargain—America says we will give you opportunity, but you’ve got to earn your success.
You’re competing against young people in Beijing and Bangalore. They’re not hanging out. They’re not playing video games. They’re not watching “Real Housewives.” I’m just saying. It’s a two-way street. You’ve got to earn success.
That wasn’t in my prepared remarks. But I’m just saying.”—President Obama today, keeping it real
