(Some Guy)   The first Dark Knight Rises screening for critics has taken place and it received a standing ovation. If you want to be hip, you better start talking about how it stinks now rather than waiting until two days after release   (movieswithbutter.com ) divider line

"The trilogy is greater than the sum of its parts, and for me the 3rd was the very best part of the whole story... Godfather 3 never happened. Xmen 3 & Spider-Man 3 were awful, this film was the perfect final chapter in the trilogy." - Tom McAuliffe

Finally starting to look forward to this.

Add Alien 3 and Matrix 3 to that list.

As Warner Bros have no viable alternatives to offer after this,your wish will be granted in about a year and a half. Maybe sooner.

I want to see it, I just don't want to see it in a theater packed with noisy farking people for over well over 3 hours (including previews, commercials, etc.). Might wait for the luxury of sitting on my leather couch with tons of booze, snacks, big screen tv, and the ability to pause it for bathroom breaks.

I'll wait til I find out if it has a happy ending or not. I go to movies to feel good, not be traumatized, like in X-3 when most everybody I cared about got wasted.....

I would say that we should add Highlander 3 to the list, but that would require admitting they made a second one.

I kinda get the "Why So Serious?" meme. The Batman TV show was camp comedy. The Tim Burton version was sorta humorous. Everything since then was as serious as a visit from the IRS.

I want to see a Batman / Superman crossover movie done as a comedy.

By embracing grim, gritty "realism" in a desperate attempt to win the respect of an adult audience, Hollywood has ignored the brilliant social commentary intrinsic to the source material and again fallen far short of any aspirations to "art.'

Enjoy the wankfest, rubes.

This. I am stunned at how misguided and wrong Superman III was. It's a testament to the work Donner and Mankiewicz did on the first and much of the second film. Superman III is the movie the first Superman film would have been if the Salkinds hadn't lucked into Donner. It's not just that it's awful - it's that the people who produced two great Superman films could take the franchise in such a wrong direction. At least Superman IV has the excuse of being made by schlockmeisters Golan-Globus - the Salkinds had gotten two films right when they made III. And I think the worst part of the legacy of III and IV is how they've sullied the reputation of the first two films - in my estimation the first Superman movie is still the second-best comic book movie ever made.

Honestly, for those of you around in 1983 - would you have gone to/did you go see a movie with a poster like this:

============================

The Warren Theater where I live has "Director's Suites" that can seat only 35 people, all the seats are heated recliners with fold-out tables, and they have seat-side menu service. It's expensive, but IMO the only way to see a movie.

Standing ovations are not unusual in screenings, especially for a movie franchise as beloved as the Christopher Nolan era Batman movies.

Really? Journalistic standards sure have changed since my day.

Speaking of which, the author of this post couldn't be bothered to mention where this press screening took place?

Possibly Canada, since two of the three Tweeters he quotes are Canadian?

The raves, incidentally, come not from professional critics but from a blogger (for Comic Book Movies website), an actor/stuntman with three low-budget movies to his credit (according to IMDB), and a self-described "Comic Book Geek and Remorseless Eating Machine." (Failing to identify your sources whenever possible is another journalistic sin.)

Not saying this won't be a good movie, but this has all the earmarks of public relations puffery. Better take those Oscar predictions with a grain of salt.

Where's that? The last time I was in that kind of theater, I was in New Zealand. I'm looking for a place like that States-side.

I have a throbbing peener for this movie but will wait a week or two after the release so I can sit and enjoy it on a mid week matinee and no crowd. Double buttered, large Cherry Coke Icee, two bags of Ice Cream Dots. Do what you know is right.
 
2012-07-07 08:38:20 PM  
Really? Standing ovation? How much better is this movie than the rather "meh" trailers they've been showing for it? I hope someone posts the plot on Wikipedia soon (like they did for the Avengers which I read half of before I realized "hey, they're giving away the whole movie!" before I stopped reading), I'm wondering how this movie can go from meh to awesome.

The last movie I spent coins to see in the big screen was TDK. Now, TDKR.

I might go see The ExpendablesII but that will be in NetFlix so soon it doesn't matter.

Nolans treatment with these 3 films is the most true to the dark nature of the hero and his deeds. And the villians have been perfect. This last will be no different. I have no doubt.

All the previous Batmans were crap, with the exception of the first with Jack as the Joker. He saved it.

I think you're missing something here. Heavy handed in 'what'?
 
2012-07-07 09:02:56 PM  
Just be better than the 2nd one.

It's one of those movies that didn't stand up to repeated viewings. The plot holes and coincidences become too glaring once you have time to think about them.
Even if I give credit to the performances(i do), the film falls flat in the plot dept. (even for the Batman universe, one where I try to keep belief suspended).
