Ever wondered what The Dark Knight characters were like back in high school? Well, welcome to Gotham High!
The Dark Knight (2008)
In case you were wondering…
It’s easy to love the main characters from a movie. Even the sidekicks and love interests. However, it’s those really memorable minor characters that leave us talking about the film for years to come. In honor of all of them, we’ve decided to make our list the Top Ten Characters We Wanted to See More Of. See who made the list!
10. Ned Ryerson- Groundhog Day
Sure, it’s easy to hate on Ned Ryerson. But you love to hate him. Plus, not only would more of Ned Ryerson make us happy, his longer appearance on-screen would have provided Bill Murray with a lot more comedic material.
9. Pit Droids- Star Wars Episode I
Ok, true. Not a “character” per se. But the pit droids from Star Wars deserved much more screen time! They’re cute, they’re functional, they can retract ala “Wall-E”, and they even had their own video game!
8. Louis Tully- Ghostbusters
Who doesn’t love the goofy lawyer from Ghostbusters? But to be perfectly honest… We think Rick Moranis deserves more screen time in ANY film he’s in. He’s the perfect dork you can’t help but love.
7. David Wooderson- Dazed and Confused
“That’s what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older, they stay the same age”. Need we say more? I guarantee he would have given us more quotable gold like this if we had stuck around longer with the character.
6. Blue- Old School
It was a true tragedy that Blue had to die. Getting into all kinds of shenanigans at his age? We had nothing but respect for him. Well, at least he died doing what he loved most… Wrestling with naked ladies.
5. Bill Murray- Space Jam
It’s no secret by now that we love Bill Murray. Now add to that already unconditional love the fact that he helps Michael Jordan defeat the Monstars in the most important game of basketball in history! Sold! We were just sad he had so little screen time.
4. Mariachis- Nacho Libre
By far the best sequence in the film. This trio of Mariachis delivers pure comedy without even fully speaking english! Besides, what if keeping them in the film longer would have given us another hilarious impromptu song from Jack Black?!
3. Two-Face- The Dark Knight
Might seem like an obvious choice. Still, he definitely deserves this spot on our list. We still feel like we didn’t get enough of two-face. Don’t get me wrong, Harvey Dent was a great character throughout the entire film. But that small peek at Two-Face just had us hankering for more.
2. Underminer- The Incredibles
We understand that it was just a good way to end an amazing film. However, we stand by the fact that the underminer would have made for a great villain! He had the look for it, and already had a catchphrase! He would have been perfect to jumpstart the sequel.
1. Jesus- The Big Lebowski
He said it best when he stated, “Nobody f***s with the Jesus”. We just wish we could have seen more of him dancing in that skin tight purple suit.
What do you think? Any great characters missing?
Who doesn’t remember the magic of 8-bit video games? We all remember when Mario was nothing more than a pixelated tiny man with a big head and a mustache.
This nostalgia for the 8-bit imagery and the third generation video game consoles was the inspiration for these posters by the people over at craveonline.com
Check out this rendition of the “Kill Bill” poster.

Have you ever been watching a movie and thought “wow, I wish that existed!”? So have we. This week we’ve compiled a list of our Top Ten Favorite Movie Items We Wish Existed!
We were going to make Space Jam’s power-drink “Michael’s Secret Stuff” our number one choice
…but then we remembered that it turned out to be pure water. Here’s what made our list:
10. Big Kahuna Burger
Sure there seems to be a infinite amount of places to grab a burger these days, but there’s something about Tarantino’s fictionalized burger joint that makes us extra hungry.
9. “Click” Remote
We’ve seen the movie, and we’re aware of the consequences, but how cool would it be to press pause on life every now and then? Not to mention the possibility of skipping right over those Mondays!
I mean… Do we really have to say why? What DOESN’T it do?! To all non-believers, be dazzled by this epic dance sequence:
7. Hover Board
Who didn’t want a Back to the Future hover board after seeing it in action? Just imagine the possibilities! No more being chased by bullies for this guy! Unless there is a puddle of water, of course…
This weapon is the epitome of cool - Not only is it the weapon of choice for the Jedi, but it comes in multiple colors, sizes, and designs. Plus, you can carve the turkey AND cook it at the same time!
5. Harry Potter Cloak of Invisibility
Everyone has wanted to be somewhere they shouldn’t be. Or what about running into someone you really don’t like? Not a problem anymore!
Plus, with this cloak you aren’t chased by evil mythical creatures and spied on by a giant flaming eye. Sorry, “The One Ring”.
4. The Batmobile
Of course, we are talking about Tim Burton’s amazing “James Bond-esque” Batmobile,
…not Christopher Nolan’s ”G.I. Joe” Batmobile. In our book, Special Gadgets beat a tank every time!
3. “The Matrix” Program
We don’t necessarily want a big plug on the back of our head, but if it means being able to plug in and learn a language in minutes, knowing how to operate impossibly complex equipment, or becoming a master in various forms of martial arts, I think we’d be game. Watch out, colleges!
2. Green Lantern’s Power Ring
The Green Lantern’s power ring (complete with lantern) would be amazing! We would definitely use this ring to create the rest of the items on this list should we be forced to pick just one item. See…we just used this ring to create a loophole!
1. The Neuralizer
Our number one on the list… Men In Black’s Neuralizer! Not only can you erase memories with this baby, but you can replace them as well! So what exactly can you do with this? Be the richest man in the world? Check. Become President? Check. End wars forever? Check. Just don’t forget to wear your sunglasses.
Let us know your favorite ones or ones we missed!
