What's funny is, to THAT dink, it's either 5'7 OR 7'.

Nothing in-between.

Most definitely.

You could argue it either way about whether I've been the hardest on Chris Nolan around here or if non-amos (if that even his real name) has been. Tough to say. But one thing I have to acknowledge TDK did well was showing Batman being successful in his task.

It's the same reason I dig on the Punisher- Max series by Garth Ennis. That version of the Punisher had been at it for quite a while and he'd pretty much thrown the entire mafia into disarray. Same kind of thing with TDK. Batman had been at it for a little less than a year and he'd made serious traction in taking the mob apart piece of by piece.

So often, esp in comics, a character has been beating the hell out of people for years and years but nothing ever really improves. Obviously that's because the writers and editors want the story to keep going and if you write the story where Batman or Superman triumph once and for all over the criminal underworld, you've written the last Batman or Superman story. And that's fine, I get that, but it sometimes leaves the hero looking weak and ineffectual.

As much as TDK isn't really my brand of vodka as far as Batman goes, I have to give it props for showing us a Batman who was waging a war on the mob and had a little something more to show for it each day. You could argue that Burton implied it in Batman Returns but Nolan, as is his wont, made it pretty explicit in TDK.

I'm not excusing the myriad other dumb decisions related to these movies (how the hell could I?), I'm just giving the man his due on this one item.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: I like Nolan's Bat-film's, I just prefer his original stuff MORE. And guess what? NOLAN DOES TOO.

But Hardly "Bane" and Julie-Newmar "Selina Kyle" are just too much for me this time. Nothing, NOTHING Tom Hardy does with "Bane" will change my mind on the stupid decision to cast him. Knowing the guy is a creatine-bloated shrimp assures me of this. I just won't buy it. And the decision to base a 2012 feature film character on a mostly-ridiculous version from the 1960's is almost as bad. And then on top of that, to NEVER call the character "Catwoman"?

Nolan please.

Yes indeed. We don't "moderate" what people say here. At all. But if you say something people don't agree with, you gotta be ready to stand behind what you said. Because people will come at you, and they will come hard....






You know what I mean.

Didn't know where to post this but we been talking here most lately:
Some TDKR news:
http://www.comicbookmovie.com/fansites/nailbiter111/news/?a=63076


Lauren Hiestand @nickcarterroxs

The Dark Knight Rises has just finished screening for the press and critics,receiving a STANDING OVATION!!!

om McAuliffe @TomMcAuliffe

Just finished the screening of Dark Knight Rises...so much awesome...can't wait to see it again. And again.
Tom McAuliffe - "9 out of 10 for me. I'd put Amazing Spider-Man at a 7.5 and Avengers at an 8.5"

In reaction to who had the best moments - TomMcAuliffe - "Bane for sure."

"The trilogy is greater than the sum of its parts, and for me the 3rd was the very best part of the whole story. Dark knight is a classic in its own right - it stands alone, but in this trilogy, and as a closer, this film exceeds. It's an ending that presents opportunity for thought for sure. Risky/tough story well told, brilliantly acted, great cinematography, awesome score."

"To your original question - there are things I criticize in every film, but this one measures high on many measures. There will be some surprises but not big ones, the beauty of the film is how well it tells the story. Tom Hardy was incredible as Bane, the storyline was fantastic. I think the Joker is far more iconic than Bane, with more memorable quotes, but this story was great, including Bane's origin. Godfather 3 never happened. Xmen 3 & Spider-Man 3 were awful, this film was the perfect final chapter in the trilogy."

As far as audience reaction, there were only 40-50 ppl in attendance (mostly critics), but there was applause and I leaned over and shook Michael Uslan's hand and congratulated him when his name appeared in the credits. I, myself, cried twice...once out of sadness and once out of pure geeky uncontrollable happiness. - DKRSHH

Vince just saw Dark Knight Rises at a press screening & says: "Wow. Quite speechless at the moment....TDKR was everything I wanted it to be"

— Marco Gennuso (@marcogennuso) July 6, 2012

Spoiler:
The Description Below Features MILD SPOILERS!

SHH's KnightOfTheFall - Bane, whilst nowhere near as impressive as Joker, was an excellent choice for a bad guy. This guy is pure malevolence. There is a particularly violent moment which involves bane and a poor wall street dude. It's something all parents need to be aware of before taking kids. Selina was great and Hathaway nailed the character and made her own interpretation but there are many little traits from past origins that come into play. JGL is not robin nor does he appear in the suit. He is just an idealistic beat cop. Nothing more. His character is handled and written well. Bale was excellent as Batman and finally, The Bat Voice, is done with justice. It's not as forced as it was previously. Action scenes were excellent and truly make this move epic. The last 20 minutes with Batman and Bane are some of the finest fight scenes I've ever seen in a superhero movie. The camera is pulled back and slowed down to show the blows.

A bunch of critics invited to a "special screening" by WB are falling all over themselves to "praise" 'Rises'?

Judging from those 'spoilers' it doesn't appear that this film is gonna be 'kid-friendly' after all! SO Mr. Nolan, there goes part of your potential audience. Add to that no midnite UK screenings & you really expect to win the international market?! Well at least THE AVENGERS have nothing to worry about after all.

Good points all, actually. Kids have played/are playing a big part in Marvel's success. I can't believe Hollywood is having to relearn this lesson. You'd think Star Wars alone would've had them keeping half an eye on the kiddie dollars all along. But I guess some people need to be told...
