This is the thing I've been thinking about it: Compared to Dark Knight, it's not as good. Compared to most action movies, it is much better. It's somewhere between.

Troop and I decided to wait on the DVD to come out in a few months...cheaper than theater. BTW one of my buds said the movie 'inhaled deeply' and did not see what all the fuss was about.

Aye, it was alright. I laughed at a few things that apparently weren't jokes, and the politics of the whole thing is a mess, but it was passable action.

Yeah, it's a great movie, but compared to The Dark Knight it doesn't stand a chance. The Dark Knight was so perfectly balanced, whereas I felt this movie was less Batman.

I just left the theater and was going to make a thread :P

So I'm pretty much a bat-fanatic, and as such I'm pretty psyched for every Batman release. Here's my thoughts:

A:) Anne Hathaway playing Catwoman after Michelle Pfeifer is like anyone playing Joker after Ledger. That said, she brought a great victimized sexuality to the role and frankly her butt looked great on that motorcycle.

B:) I honestly believe this movie was better than the Dark Knight. I think if you were to take away Heath Ledger you'd be left with a snore fest and none of the action of a normal Batman movie. This movie had zero interesting villains but instead gave us a more traditional Batman story.

C:) If you're familiar with Frank Miller's Batman story and the Knightfall series nothing in this movie, including the ending, should surprise you. That's only a spoiler if you Google it.

D:) I'm totally over the Nolan trilogy. I'm kind of scared they're working on a JLA style movie to compete with the Avengers and I hope they leave Batman out (which is possible for reasons I'll leave unnamed.) Honestly, once you get over the amazing acting performances and great direction you realize that this Batman was geared towards adults. That's fine, but it just means that kids won't get the Batman experience I did with freaking amazing cartoons and the fun Tim Burton movies. This is the crime drama Batman that requires dramatic dialogue and tense moments to keep the audience going. It's like sucking the soul out of a comic to me.

I did love the movies though. As far as from an adult perspective they're light years beyond any other comic book movie. But now that we've gotten realistic batman, lets get back to quirky Batman.

E:) This movie may very well be the longest, most expensive anti Obama rant ever made. It was so obvious at times that I found it distracting. Think of that uncomfortable moment when you realize Aaron Eckhart's speech in TDK was a thinly veiled George Dubya reference and blow it up over the whole movie. Lines like "I'll poison them with hope" kind of pushed it for me. Gotham City should exist outside of American politics.

I loved it. They had me giggling like a little kid from the opener to the end.

Don't blame me, I voted for Kodos.

I really thought it was bland and dragged out.  I left the movie theater kinda disappointed. 

As for the Dark Knight, I really enjoyed that the first time I saw it.  After seeing it again a few times on DVD my opinion changed a bit.  Still a good movie but not as good as people make it out to be in my opinion.

Maybe Batman just isn't my favorite Tongue

And I'm pro-Obama and didn't see what all the fuss was about. 

Bane (and his mastermind) didn't really seem to care that conditions got bad. They weren't actually supporting any kind of movement. The idea of telling people to "Take back their city" while the cops were trapped was pretty much just a cover to stir up as much chaos as possible before the bomb went off -- because both Bane and his mastermind knew the bomb was going off anyway. 

If they didn't know the bomb was going off, I would have wondered why the movie was taking such a stand against, seemingly, the Occupy Movement. But they did know the bomb was going to go off regardless, so they just used some small aspects of it to cause an unsettled society. The League of Shadow's endgame is a clean start for society, wiping everyone off Earth and starting fresh.

I still prefer the 1967 campy comic book TV 'Batman' and the movie from, to these new pieces of garbage. Blood, gore and sex..... these movies all are begining to look alike. The old Batman had the comic book feel, and seldom was there a hidden but obvious political agenda within.

Also miss 'The Monkee's' campy family fare.

I thought it was my favorite of the three, probably easily.

It ended a little quickly, but I was alright with it.

I thought Bane was great, and I loved that they stayed closer to the source material, even though I didn't see it coming.

Also, I think I'm in love with Anne Hathaway, I thought her character was a nice foil to the seriousness of the movie. Plus, she's super hot.

I thought it was a great movie. My friend thought it was ok, but he also kept complaining that it was very anti-upper class and made it seem that all rich people are horrible.

Personally I was annoyed by the blatant political overtones regarding the 2010 Copiapů mining accident.

I thought it was pretty good though long.

I disagree on wanting the campy batman back. The only reason I liked this trilogy is because it doesn't try to be a comic book. I wish they'd do the same with the 100s of video game movies they've ruined.
