Re: "The Dark Knight Rises" Review and Discussion Thread (spoilers)

Don't know if TDKR is still playing anywhere---certainly not here locally---but even with my quibbles I'll still be picking this up on disc. If they package the trilogy together on Blu-Ray then that's what I'll probably go for.

I thought about buying the blu rays, but I read that they switch aspect ratio/change the letterbox for the IMAX scenes from 2.4:1 to 16:9. I'm not sure if I'll like that or not.

I have both on Blu-Ray. This only happens with The Dark Knight. It looks fantastic, but I suggest playing it only on an HD TV.

Do you live in a small town with only one small theater? The Avengers is still playing here!

Yeah, we have a very nice multi-screen theatre, but it's the only game around.

I'm jealous. We don't even have a movie theater. The nearest theater is about an hour away in another town.

They told us that a theater was coming soon when we moved here. That was eleven years ago . . . .

Considering that it's still playing on 3,157 screens, chances are the movies still at most places it was on opening weekend -- but it's no doubt left some smaller areas, since it's dropped from a high of 4,404 screens.

I love that we can explain everything away "because he's Batman."

Re: "The Dark Knight Rises" Review and Discussion Thread (spoilers)

I rated it as good. Without the excellent ending it had, I probably would have thought of it as in-between fair and good.

Re: "The Dark Knight Rises" Review and Discussion Thread (spoilers)

So, I just rewatched Batman Begins, and dude it is the exact same plot as the third movie.

The League of Shadows comes to destroy Gotham. Bruce ends up in a hellish prison connected to Ra'sh. They break out the prison and release the inmates. They engender fear in the citizenry. They use a near-sci-fi weapon of mass destruction. The leader's secret identity is revealed in a shocking twist at the end. Bats goes off to sacrifice himself to save the city, revealing to a supporting character his secret identity through a shared line of old dialogue.

Also.... is the little boy that Rachel saves from Scarecrow supposed to be Robin? 'Cause in his one scene with Bats he says you're real? The other kids don't believe me.

Considering that this is what that little boy looks like eight years later, I'm gonna say no:


Blake is supposed to be much older than that kid would be.

Let's say that boy is supposed to be 10... how long is Dark Knight after BB? I know they're rebuilding the Manor still but c'mon that would take years to do.

It's probably around a year, as suggested by The Joker who says the Mob was a bit more bold before Batman showed up.

I lean toward TDK taking place about a year after BB, but there is evidence for both a long and short gap between BB and TDK:
