Thread: Batman 3 = "The Dark Knight Rises"

    I will be waiting for the DVD.

    Can someone who has seen it answer me something.
    The Dark Knight had a lot of parallels to the War On Terror and the trailer to TDKR had some implication that bane was speaking for Gotham's underclass or something.
    So, my question is, is this right wing propaganda? The mighty bat fighting the working class who is rebelling against the 1%?

    ^Not at all...reviewers and marketing i guess are trying to create the parallel, but it's really peripheral to the overall story

    i enjoyed it alot, despite having some problems with the plot at times (there's one unexplained thing that's huge and took me out of the movie, but the people i went with were saying i was being too critical and waived it off by saying "He's Batman"), but there's a lot of good stuff happening from a cinematic and acting perspective, and the story is ambitious and involving.

    and if you've read any batman, you'll be able to anticipate some of the twists later in the movie, even if it involves merging bane's origin with another character's...'john blake' gets as much screentime as batman, and the payoff is kind of cheesy

    Best film this year. One of the best trilogies of all-time also. This film will only become better and better when we reflect on how shit so many other films are.

    I loved it a lot.

    Word, the first brawl was fuckin crazy. Someone said Joker was better, Bane made Joker look like a school bully

    The 1% thing is the medias creation, obvious this story was written well before any of that Occupy shit ever happened

    Acting wise, Jokers performance cant be topped IMO, Heath owned it even in death. Bane was good to physically test Bruce, Ive never seen anyone yet that can go toes with him like that

    it was an awesome movie, and nolan did an awesome job i liked the illusion to a "robin" but at the same time it was a great send off and when you were shocked by the twists and then twist at the end were great and i cannot wait to purchase it on dvd

    The occupy movement is responsible for the 1% vs. 99% terminology but it didn't create the ideas behind them. Remember the terms bourgeois and proletariat?

    Is bane's movement reminiscent of the worker uprisings during the industrial revolution?

    If this movie had a pussy, I'd f*** it!

    I absolutely loved it. Speaking of which, I'm going to see it again tonight. Overall, I believe that Nolan and his team did an outstanding job. However, there are some things that I didn't like about the movie. There was no interaction with the people of Gotham like there was in Batman Begins and The Dark Knight. Also, the last fight b/w Batman and Bane should've been just that. Like in The Dark Knight when the Joker and Batman fight and then they have a talk afterwards. I felt that should've happened in Dark Knight Rises. Plus, Batman doesn't fly using his cape. Ok. WTF? The ending seemed a little rushed, in my opinion, but it was good (not as good as The Dark Knight's ending)

    Is this movie better than The Dark Knight? Honestly, it's hard to say. I'll watch it again to make that determination. Oscar for the best movie of the year nomination? It had better be!

    Ra's al Ghul is an international criminal mastermind whose ultimate goal is a world in perfect environmental balance. He believes that the best way to achieve this balance is to eliminate most of humanity. Ra's usually tries to assault the world's human populace with a biological weapon, such as a genetically-engineered virus.
    Interesting.
