Sure, leave the origins of the "Darth Vader" of the movie to the deleted scenes. That's almost as lame as leaving the fate of the "Darth Vader" of Lord of the Rings on the cutting room floor.

To be fair, learning the origins of the actual Darth Vader gave us the prequels, so maybe there's a reason for cutting this origin.

It might be nice to see this, but I wasn't really missing it in the theatrical cut.

Two bits won me over in that movie very early on and after that I've found very little to be lacking.

First, when the CIA guy says, "So your plan was to get caught" and Bane replies, "Of course!"... the way he says "Of course!" immediately grabbed me.

Second, when "timid maid" Selina sees that Bruce is onto her little act, and her body language smoothly changes into "Catwoman".

Movie had me right there.

Am I the only person who thought there was a sufficient amount of Bane backstory in the theatrical version?

Yeah.

Although I think there was a sufficient amount of Bane backstory in the theatrical version.

If this is true, I think this might be a first for Nolan, or at least I don't remember deleted scenes or "director's cuts" being released for his other movies.

Maybe he was happy with the theatrical cuts of the other ones, but felt this one needed a little more.

Peter Jackson said he considered the theatrical versions of Lord Of The Rings as his "director's cuts." That's why the other versions are just called "extended versions."

The difference is that Nolan can direct.

Needed more joker. Imagine Joker's anarchy, Bane's fascism, Batman's ideals running into each other.

No backstory. How about his endstory? That could be entertaining.
 
2012-09-05 09:30:07 PM  
How about we have at least just a brief visit with the entire police force that's been buried in the dark sewers for three months?

Nope, you're not the only one. I was satisfied with the movie. That said... I wouldn't mind seeing more of it either. It was a damn good movie.

I wouldn't mind a version of the film that had the original voice of Bane, not the ADR'd version that was in the theatrical cut. That was the thing that really bugged me in the film, that I could tell that voice was recorded in a studio.
 
2012-09-05 10:31:19 PM  
Can movie companies stop with all the farking blu-ray exclusive content already? It wasn't bad when it was HD-DVD vs blu-ray, but now that it's JUST blu-ray and DVD it's sickening.

Yes I know blu-ray can hold more data than a DVD, I also know you could charge DVD buyers a bit more and add another farking disc into the case with the same bonus content. Not everyone and their grandmothers have blu-ray players and/or 3D TVs hollywood.

So much THIS. It just sounded wrong, like voice over and not part of the scene. It took me out of the movie every time he spoke. It's not like he was David Prowse or something.

Yeah, pretty much my only complaint about the movie. Well, the 'throw you into a pit I got out of' plotline can be chalked up to it being a comic book movie.

Not Dark Knight good, but pretty good.

There are many reasons I don't go to movie theaters anymore. I haven't stepped into a multiplex since the last Tron movie and I don't miss it, and this is just one more reason why. I already prefer watching movies at home anyway, and if they're going to not show the entire thing until it's out on Blu-Ray, why would I waste time and money in a theater?

I don't need to be the first kid on the block to see something. I'll like The Avengers just fine when I finally see it at home, and probably have a much better viewing experience.

The point of going to movie theaters seems sort of ridiculous to me now.

They did the same with VHS. Companies eventually forced people to buy DVD players when they decided to stop making VHS tapes.

The movie was already long and boring...

If you care at all about movies you should own a blu ray player by now, it isn't like they are prohibitively expensive. And they play all your crappy looking dvds too.

So...there will be ANOTHER half hour training montage in a movie that already didn't need a single training montage?

To put this another way, I decline. I believe that the last live action Batman movie came out in 1992 and though there have been a lot of great cartoons since then, no one has made a Batman movie since that film. Imagine it with me. Its awesome.

In the theatrical cut less was more. What you didn't know had more of an impact. People's imaginations as to what happened to Bane was more than sufficient. That was the whole point of it. The director's cut would be more for the simpletons who don't "get it", or the fans that do, but just want more of an awesome movie.

Avengers will suck at home, unless you have a projector and a kick ass wall screen.

If you wait till it comes out on home entertainment-its actually cheaper.

However- there is something to be said for being with a group- especially an opening night crowd. For me watching a movie on the big screen with other fans... Awesom.

Technically, yeah, he did get out of the pit, but he didn't climb out. He got carried out by Ra's. It was more "throw you into the pit that my friend got out of." Plus he had a broken back so, you know, it wasn't a bad gamble.

I know the Knightfall storyline had Bane breaking Bruce's back, but I got the idea in the movie that it was more of a slipped disk. The training montage wasn't just to heal the back, it was also Bruce getting back to form after a long layoff.

Orgasmatron138: I got the idea in the movie that it was more of a slipped disk.


You don't heal a "slipped disk" (a misnomer to be fair) with chiropractic. That aside, if the spine actually split like that (jutting out of Bruce's back and stuff) he'd have been permanently paralyzed from the waist down. It looked like a dislocated rib to me. In any case, as long as the writer isn't a doctor, I think it was a good move to make it deliberately vague. He got a back injury, got it treated and rehabbed. I'm OK with that. What was far lazier was that Batman before the injury was set up in the beginning as a scarred, rusting has-been whose body was falling apart. Then he goes through a stupid Rocky montage and now he's better than ever? After a crippling injury no less? OK, OK, it's a comic book story. But the movie isn't shot like a comic book. So fanbois, make up your minds already.

Fact is, The Dark Knight Rises was a silly, carelessly written movie with comic-grade cheese and laughably unrealistic premises, but is shot to be all gritty and "realistic". I rank it on the same level as "Independence Day" and "Waterworld". If people enjoyed that then I'm cool with them, but the flip-flopping between "it's a comic book" and "it's realistic" is getting annoying.

SkylineRecords: It's kind of difficult to like a movie when you can't understand what the hell the main antagonist is saying.


That isn't what made it boring, and the disc should have captioning anyway. It was just a dumb, dumb movie. I came in with high expectations and as the silliness grew I got annoyed.

I honestly came away thinking it was Nolan's "fark you" to the whole project and its fans, and he deliberately made it stupid (but shot all serious-like) to see if anyone would notice.
