I hope she gets her own flick and they procedurally go around the country torching all traces of the Halle Berry film.

Just saw it today with my friends. Absolutely amazing, but not as good as the second one. I'm glad my favorite villain (Jonathan Crane) made an appearance.

If someone lacks intelligence, than he is not stupid, because one cannot be stupid without intelligence.

If someone reverts to having to complain about your grammar, then you already won.

loved the score, and the story line, a few things i did not expect (pretty obvious looking back though) that brought things full circle from Batman Begins...

i would give it an 8.5/10 the movie had an amount time lacking "batman" that i thought was not befitting.

I'm hopefully gonna be seeing it in August for my birthday. These glowing reports have made me all the more excited. The anticipation is killing me.

Just saw it today. It had some flaws, but what movie doesn't? I loved every second of it. Bane's voice in the beginning had me a little nervous, but by the second scene with him in it I was all for it. I did not however like the reveal of one character's real name at the end.

Finished: Too Much Love Will Kill You (working title), an original fiction novel. Working on: Second draft of Too Much Love, and the first draft of A Winter's Tale (working title).

I'll be going to see it on Monday and I absolutely can't wait!! Hardy has a hell of a tough job following Ledger's Joker, which frankly is a near-impossible task, and while I don't think i'll like him as much as the Joker, he'll definitely be a close second from what i've seen thus far.

Just got back from the cinema, and it was awesome. It started up slow but the ending was spectacular. If I ever by some unlikely coincidence meet Anne Hathaway I owe her an apology.

Just got back from the cinema and... I honestly don't know what to think about it. It's not a bad film and as a political movie it can be seen as quite good but a batman film it was not. The final ending was a suitable end to the trilogy but it's not as good as the other two. I get the whole 'bruce wayne and his inner demons' thing, I really do, but batman was missing for most of the film and for an 'epic' conclusion to the trilogy I found it a bit odd. It's hard to really call it a batman film!

In conclusion, it's not awful but I recommend not paying attention to any reviews and come to a decision for yourself. The only thing I can say for certain is that it's not the classic that TDK was.
