What didn't you like about the reveal? I'm assuming you mean:

Varakir: Indeed. I've just never really liked that part of the comics. I get it and understand it, I've just never really enjoyed that aspect.

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 thought it was nice as fan service. I do like that aspect of the comics, but i think they'd have a problem putting it on film....

I think they pulled it off as well as could be expected within nolan's framework, I don't think the concept really works in his realistic settings. I honestly would have preferred that they left that out but it was done well enough to not really bother me.

Loved the film, I felt Bane was spot on he was more of a presance character then an all out pyschopath like the Joker. I feel they did this on purpose so as not to take away from the role of Heath Ledger and boy it was spot on imo.

As for Hype, the only trailers i've seen where at the cinema when i was watching other films.

Finaly, any one excited about the new Bond...............I am!

I really liked it but in the end it is probably my least favorite of the three. And for me that all came down to issues with villians. Bane's voice was aweful, it sounded like someone doing a sean connery through a tube and standing there clutching his vest all the time did nothing for me. I prefered Ra's al Ghul in his more limited screen time and the Joker by far. And the two "twists" at the end were outrageously transparent and given away multiple times. Were as the Dark Knight script played you the whole way and it didn't seem obvious what the Joker's grand scheme was. I don't think any of the problems I had were acting but more script issues.

8/10

Just got back from seeing it. Best film I have ever seen. Bane was fantastic in every scene, especially when he fights Batman for the first time.



Would pay to see it again. If i'm willing to do that for a movie, then its definitely one of my favourites. Only two movies I would pay to see again are this and The Avengers.

Was good movie, but thinking its weakest of three. Nothing bad to say about it anyway. First movie was great in showing how he became batman and second movie was just cause of Joker.
