While there's the obvious back-and-forth Inception invoked, for some bizarre reason movies like The Dark Knight Rises also got bombarded with dull "plot-skewering" listicles. Movieline ran one that asked, "What's up with that one hug?" between Catwoman and her friend ... on an article called (we shit you not) "Holy Plot Holes, Batman! 9 Logical Gripes With The Dark Knight Rises." What Culture asks how Bane and Talia knew who Batman was, and then immediately points out that her father, Ra's Al Ghul, probably told her, literally answering their own question on a list called "The Dark Knight Rises: 10 Questions We Still Want Answered." At least SlashFilm was honest with themselves when they simply put out "15 Things That Bothered Us About The Dark Knight Rises," which included such irreconcilable grievances as the fact that one scene was shot in a hallway. We were inundated with so many shoddy Dark Knight Rises lists that other sites started spoofing them.
Now Interstellar is out, and already we're getting hard-hitting lists from sites like Business Insider, Salon, HitFix, and Entertainment Weekly, rattling off such "baffling questions" and "plot holes" as:
