In 2012, nitpicking movies became the latest online craze. Everyone got wrapped up in it. Some may blame the movies, but I blame fans with video editing skills who make videos like the ones below.
Three of the year’s most discussed movies – Rian Johnson‘s Looper, Ridley Scott’s Prometheus and Christopher Nolan‘s The Dark Knight Rises – are the latest to get “Everything Wrong With In 3-4 Minute” videos from CinemaSins. And while the latter two are mostly warranted, the former is such a stretch, even the director spoke out about it. Check it out below.
Johnson responded to the video on Twitter, and he’s right, this one is a bit much. It’s a time travel movie.
I should be good humored about this, but it feels oddly nasty. Also it’s almost all thoughtless & wrong. Ok I’ll shush. youtube.com/watch?v=XwDbqh…

And here are the other two videos which I have less of an issue with. Where do you stand?
