The Dark Knight Rises for people that have seen it




It was suggested I start this so we who have been lucky enough to see the movie could talk about it without spoiling it for others. And here.... we..... go

I felt it was the best ending to a trilogy or any movie series I've ever seen. The reason is that it ends the series for Bruce Wayne/Batman while also setting it up for a new and exciting future. If WB decides to reboot back to the beginning I think that will be a terrible mistake. Also, Nolan has set up a situation where a brand new story can be told so we don't get a reboot like The Amazing Spiderman or the upcoming Man of Steel where we get the same character and story over and over again.

I feel like Batman can now move into the James Bond realm where it can shift actors and not miss a beat. But better than Bond, we'll get something new with a new character in Robin John Blake. What Nolan has done for Batman is pretty unbelievable if you think about where Batman was at the end of Batman and Robin.

As for the movie itself, was it the best Batman? No, not in my opinion. In some ways, even Batman Begins was better while The Dark Knight stands as the unquestioned #1 for me. Tim Burton will always get props for making Batman relevant in 1989, but I think Nolan made a far more complete universe with multiple interesting characters instead of just Batman and the villains. Think about the importance Commissioner Gordon had in Nolan's series then think about the blundering buffoon that he was in Burton's series.

But I feel like I've gone on too long. What did you guys think? Did you like Catwoman as much as I did? Did you buy the Bane backstory and then drop your jaw when the truth about Miranda Tate was revealed? I still feel a little foolish about that. Discuss...
