In other news, Team Romney is now apparently purchasing twitter followers to the tune of roughly 10,000 per hour.
In related musings — I’m not going to post a full review, but I will say I believe anyone suggesting The Dark Knight Rises was a “right-wing” film either wasn’t paying very close attention, the details went in one ear and out the other, or they’re just being hip.
If there was any political message at all contained in the film, it’s that anarchism is not a solution, and that imperfect government is better than no government. But even that is a stretch. Comics contain all manner of fantastic stories and they often broach sensitive subjects, placing unimaginable obstacles in the way of the story’s hero, but they do so for the sake of character, not to make political statements.
There are always exceptions, but they are few and far between.
Don’t take my word for it, and certainly don’t take the word of hipsters on twitter or Rush Limbaugh. See the film and judge for yourself. Better yet, pick up a few comics and read for yourself.
