cetacei: Thank God Nolan is done with Batman. Maybe they can find someone competent to fix the franchise now that he's moved on to ruining Superman.

Now we know what Joel Schumacher's Fark handle is.

My only complaint. Great flick, but I wasn't expecting the Godfather or anything.

BokChoy: farkityfarker: Seriously? It's a movie about a man who fights crime while dressed in a cheesy bat costume.

What's wrong with people?

Apparently if you turn any goofy comic book into a gritty crime drama, people will fawn over it like its a farking masterpiece.

Yeah like those philistines who fawn over Citizen Kane. It's just a gussied-up version of Scrooge McDuck.

I know. I haven't like that movie since I saw the trailer on the TV I don't own.
Also, why do people insist on listening to bands that sold more than a hundred albums. Bunch of farking sellouts.

(Flips hair), God, the internet was so much cooler when it was on vinyl.

Hebalo: improvius: The truly hilarious thing is that this is almost EXACTLY how TDKR ended - right down to "Robin" thinking he died when the bomb went off. I have to believe this was an intentional joke/nod from Nolan.

Duh. The whole farking movie was Nolan's take on DKR The 1966 Batman movie (with a little Knightfall, but not too much). Seriously people, are we even paying attention?

That's the only way this post makes sense, sorry.

Close2TheEdge: Skills, which he never employed except when in the bat-suit, but why let facts get in the way of a good snarky insult. Actually, I don't need things spoon fed, but I also don't simply accept things that don't make sense because the scriptwriter simply leaves it out. I hope that there actually is a cut scene and not plain hackneyed writing.

Yes because Bruce has NO IDEA how to employ ANY of the training he received unless he's wearing a suit he acquired AFTER he had completed his training.

It makes perfect sense. The screenwriter already established he has special training. To have to explain it again for those that needs everything explained and restated, does nothing to serve the story.

What next?

"Oh Batman's using poison tipped darts! We never saw him make the darts in the batcave or the sedative that knocks him out, what poor screenwriting!"

"What? How did they rebuild Wayne Manor with the piano that opens a secret passage to the Batcave without the builders getting wise? Man, they did a disservice to the story by not dedicating 30 minutes of the movie showing how Bruce and Alfred avoided that problem."

Almet: Honest Bender: I loved... LOVED the first 2 batman movies. Nolan is an artist. Dark Knight Rises was.... not good. It saddens me to say that, but it was not good. The first half of the movie is boring. It's the Bruce Wayne pitty party. Catwoman was shoehorned in there so that they could shake a pretty booty around the screen and give Batman a hot chick to kiss at the dramatic point.
Then there's the fake out ending. Is he dead? SURPRISE! He's not! Didn't see that one coming... What was the point of that?
Blake decides to become Robin... Ok, that's neat. Too bad we'll never see that movie. And his name is Robin Blake? Seriously? And he's supposed to be Robin? There have been 5 robins and none of them were named Robin Blake. WTF?
Damn near any fight Batman gets into makes him look like a little biatch. He's the god damned BATMAN! WTF? And the big fight at the end... A farking street brawl? Batman in a daylight street brawl? He's the dark knight. He uses fear and stealth. He doesn't throw down on Main Street at noon!
And then there's "Bane." Let's completely ignore the richly developed and established plethora of Batman villains and let's invent a TOTALLY new bad guy. Then let's just slap an established character's name on him! BRILLIANT! Why not just call him the penguin? Or Riddlerface. WTF.
Then there's the totally unnecessary shoehorning in of Talia al ghul and the brotherhood of assassins. Totally unnecessary. I felt like I was watching Spiderman 3 all over again. How many bad guys can we cram into one movie!?

FFS. I was disappointed. :-(

/Oh ya. Spoilers.

There were fewer "Anne Hathaway's ass in tight leather" shots than I expected.

Also, it couuld have done without catwoman entirely....the whole "reluctant hero who shows up at the last minute" thing loses its punch when you can see it coming from a mile away.

When she told him she was clearing the path and getting the hell out of the city, I turned to my girlfriend and whispered, "She'll show up at the end to pull his ass out of a jam". When she did show up, the mouth breather behind me exclaimed, "Oh wow! she came back!". I wonder if he was watching the same movie I was.

I'm boycotting The Watch on principal. It's just offensive they'd make a Trayvon movie before the trial even starts. Too soon.

lilplatinum: Who the fark watches an hour long review of a film, if you are going to invest that much time maybe you should just see the damn movie.

Maybe, but the people at the cinema get irritable when I try to make pizza rolls in the auditorium.

Britney Spear's Speculum: FYI to anyone who hasn't see the film: TDKR is a BRUCE WAYNE film, not a Batman film. Knowing this, you won't be disappoint.

You remember that scene at the costume ball with Selina Kyle?

There is no Bruce Wayne. Just the Batman.

Why does everything have to be a trilogy? I mean, I liked TDKR, but it seems like they really tortured a third movie out of this franchise. The ending of TDK would have been a perfect ending for this series with Batman on the run. Leave it at two or, heck, why not go James Bond style and just keep going?

I seriously thought the trailer for Step Up Whatever was a joke when I was forced to sit through it at the movies. It seemed so drenched in satire it seemed unpossible that it was real.
