Tony Stark gets snarky

Robert Downey Jr., apparently the only person in the world who didn't enjoy the Dark Knight, lays the smack down.

"My whole thing is that I saw 'The Dark Knight'. I feel like I'm dumb because I feel like I don't get how many things that are so smart. It's like a Ferrari engine of storytelling and script writing and I'm like, 'That's not my idea of what I want to see in a movie.' I loved 'The Prestige' but didn't understand 'The Dark Knight'. Didn't get it, still can't tell you what happened in the movie, what happened to the character and in the end they need him to be a bad guy. I'm like, 'I get it. This is so high brow and so fucking smart, I clearly need a college education to understand this movie.' You know what? Fuck DC comics. That's all I have to say and that's where I'm really coming from."

I chalk this up to relapse.

So the Dark Night is too high-browed, but it's not too confusing for RDJ to have a role where he's a white man playing a white man playing a black man? I can't even comprehend what I just wrote, let alone the other philosophical intricacies of Tropic Thunder. Hypocrisy I tell you.

I don't understand the words that are coming out of Jr.'s mouth.
