RE: The dark Knight rises.
I just watched this movie last night and I have to say, I am so fucking pissed. I couldn't sleep after I watched it because I sat there going over the awful plot holes. The terrible pace. The shitty acting. Nolan's blatant attempts to make some sort of political statement. Batman hardly being in the movie. Writing Alfred out of the script so his absence wouldn't seem weird when shit went south. All the somewhat famous actors who took pointless roles. The characters that contributed nothing to the story and got too much screen time. The lack of suspense. My inability to give a rats ass about any of the characters.

I want my money back. I want to bill Christopher Nolan for my lost 3 hours.

Alfred going from a wise sage to a crying little bitch. Batman and Bruce Wayne go missing for 8 years and NO ONE PUTS 2 AND 2 TOGETHER. Him losing all of his money after Bane ducks with the stock exchange and NOBODY stops to think "Hmmm, I wonder if those 2 events might have been connected."

Apparently you missed Anne Hathaway bent over a motorcycle in her Catwoman suit. That alone was worth the price of admission. Blink

RE: The dark Knight rises.
I'm a bit late to the party it seems. I saw this in theaters, and haven't watched it since (I'm assuming it's out on Blu-ray now?), but I for one thought this movie was a colossal piece of shit compared to the other two in the series. Mind you, I didn't hate it, I thought it was just okay...but compared to the other two, which were mindblowingly awesome, this really left a sour taste in my mouth. Not only that, but it seemed WAYYY too long for the story they told...I just kept waiting for the movie to really take off like the first two did, but it never quite did. Plus, the ending kinda sucked...

RE: The dark Knight rises.
Batman may be a badass, but the jackass at the beginning of the movie wasn't batman. He was some crotchety old dude wandering around all depressed because someone died. His parents get murdered in front of him and he becomes a bad ass, Rachel dies in a building on the other side of the city and he turns into a little bitch.

Batman Begins = Fucking sweet. It was like Taken combined with the Batman and an element of the recent string of Batman video games that kick ass

The Dark Knight = One of the best movies I have ever seen. Around 3 hours long, but no matter how many times I watch it, it feels like it flies by. It is well paced, has a good story, great acting, and focuses on just 3 key characters and in doing so, makes you care about them. You become invested in their stories. And even when you don't know much about them (Joker) you are okay with that because you realize no one does.

The Dark Knight Rises = Biggest disappointment I have ever experienced movie-wise. Even more than The Hangover 2. At least with that movie I expected the movie to be similar to the first and not as great. But this movie seemed poised at the end of the Dark Knight to be epic. Batman on the run from the cops and society. Forced to confront a city that has rejected him, while struggling with why he should save it. Further complicated by Catwoman who causes him to teeter back and forth between the darkness and the light that separates him from hero (the one Gotham needs) and villain (how they see him).

What we got was: Batman, is depressed and hasn't been seen in 8 years. Life in Gotham is fucking perfect. Alfred sees Mr. Mopey walk around depressed for 8 years and waits until shit is obviously going even further south before revealing the information that would have brought him out of that funk 8 FUCKING YEARS SOONER. Gordon is going to be replaced because...well...Gotham is perfect thanks to him so why not? Not one single problem from the Mob exists. The Dent Act is an obvious political agenda by Nolan that locks people up unfairly and keeps them there. He wants us to think about these types of laws, but fucks up his point because the only thing that law ruined was the plot of the movie because the city was a fucking Utopia. Catwoman can jump off of buildings and out of windows without any gear and just walk away. She is the world's greatest cat burglar, but gets suckered into doing a job for a clean record? I mean, WTF? A) The police had a paper file on her, so once she was gone electronically, she would just get replaced, making the program completely fucking useless. B) Greatest cat burglar but everyone knows who she is, I call bullshit. C) Greatest cat burglar but still walks right into traps where she gives up her prize for nothing. Sure she had an elaborate escape plan, that revolved around a congressman NOT fucking calling anyone or feeling like he should make himself known. And he just goes with it. "Sure I'll go with you to this shady-ass bar and just sit there eating nuts. Here, take my phone too, I don't need it." Then we get Bane, who is really fucking cool. I like Bane. No real complaints here. But the League of Shadows destroying Gotham again? (Batman Begins plot) Terrorizing the city by cutting it off from the outside world to conduct the world's largest social experiment? (Dark Knight plot).

Was there anyone surprised that the mysterious CEO was actually a bad guy (Talia al Ghul)? Included in all the vague plots, for no apparent reason. So adamant about knowing everything about the fusion reactor.

Was anyone surprised that batman would have to sacrifice himself by flying the bomb out over the bay?

Was anyone surprised Nolan didn't have the balls to actually kill him?

My one complaint about Bane actually is how he dies. Bane vs Batman...and the winner is...Catwoman with a big fucking gun that blows up cars but only knocks Bane backwards 30 feet. WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!

Why not tell Alfred your plan? WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!

How does everyone suddenly start to put Bruce Wayne and Batman together based on either A) the shittiest evidence ever (the look on his face to Gordon-levitts's character) and B) Bane just fucking saying it out loud so Catwoman can hear him. BUT NO ONE STOPS AND THINKS "Hmmm...it is curios that as soon as Batman stopped appearing, Bruce Wayne went into hiding. Come to think of it, Batman must have a lot of money for the equipment he has. Has to be unrelated."

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!
