Dark Knight Rises

Does this promise Batman meets Inception?
  1. Saw the new Batman movie and thought that it was long but good. However , thought that the main villain in the poster, his voice sounded silly and most of the words he spoke were inaudible and sometimes only just about guessable. Very glad that when the film ended, it ended and there wasn't some idiotic extra scene to wait for after the credits.
  2. One girl sitting in row in front kept moving her head around and she had a little hair bun at the back that kept getting in the way of the screen, luckily she was short and by half way through she sat back properly.
  3. The Inception-esque ending was quite nice.
  4. Appreciated how this movie may have annoyed a good many people, but as the end of a trilogy, it has put the film director higher up than before into the group of directors whose work interests this writer the most and usually Christopher Nolan's interviews look as if they try their hardest not to really be that interesting, and quite often disappointing.  Perhaps appreciation can be given to the conservative Britishness floating around this last movie and maybe the mentality behind the many crass decisions made to make up the film's twisting story possibly because this writer here is not giving too much concern for the comic book fans or any one really expecting to see Catwoman or Robin as the characters they're supposed to be, and the way the main villain in the posters really seemed to vanish into nothingness once he was beaten in a fight and the truth was revealed about him was well appreciated, which gave a wonderful feeling about how the main setup seemed all for nothing. The nothingness seemed to be the bigger thrill, along with the possibility that maybe the Bain having a voice machine or whatever which didn't enable one to make out most of his words probably really showed that he didn't have much of importance to say anyway, most of it could be overlooked or just forgotten.
  5. Read in an interview today that the end of the movie was inspired by a dream that Chris Nolan had and this, well, makes sense for this writer because the ending was dreamlike 
  6. Cillian's character is supposedly the same one as in the previous Batman films but  it really didn't have much to do with the same character. Some people might have been annoyed that he wasn't playing the same character as he did in Inception. 
  7. This year there haven't been much in a way of highly ratable films for me so this one gets the prize for this year in terms of the last several months. Amused about how the Bane character once Batman had his last fight with him appeared to disappear into nowhere, and by the way that it had Catwoman and Robin but only just vaguely because they didn't really fit into Nolan's vision very well. It felt as if Nolan was twiddling around with his Inception ideas in the movie. Glad to see that his trilogy is over. Don't think that it would be easy to sit through that movie again any time soon.
