I just had a joygasm. Looking forward to the interviews with those directors.
At the risk of my opinion being dismissed solely because of my clear dislike of the Nolan Batman movies has anyone watched Dark Knight Rises since the mass hypnosis has worn off. It's really not good. Between Bale's really off putting BATMAN growl and the few really poorly staged hand to hand fighting segments(which remind me A LOT of the old stuntman wild west thing they used to have at Universal Studios...lots of telegraphed/pulled punches and exagerrated responses) it's almost dareIsayit...cruddy at times. AND EVERYONE KNOWS BRUCE WAYNE IS BATMAN!!!!!! That's unacceptable.
I get the criticisms, but I think they did a very good job tying up the trilogy without Batman coming out and giving a "retirement" speech. I think it's just that, like with most movies, when you go back after some time you can really pick apart things you didn't care about before. Just like The Avengers, just like Avatar, just like Star Wars. I mean, I struggle to stay awake in that bad boy until they get to the Cantina. It's just how it goes after you've really gone through it piece by piece.
I watched it with a full room of people. Half of them had never seen it.
I spent the entire movie talking like Bane saying **** like "But Batman.... what if all the police officers HAND'T gone under ground at the same time. How could I have planned on something I had no knowledge of?"
I watched it at the movies and thought it was good but not great, then I watched it again when it was released on Bluray and thought it was kinda boring. That's my main complaint, it's too long and boring with too many unimportant characters taking up space. I don't really care about the absurdity of trapping the police in the sewers or fight scenes not being up to par or whatever. The movie just needed to be tighter. It's not without good parts but it's easily the worst of the Nolan Batman films.
It's got plot holes you could drive a truck through, but I still enjoy it.
