    Batman: The Dark Knight Rises--the film, not the shootings

    This got terrific reviews before the horrific shooting. I feel for the actors (obviously not as much as for the families and victims, but trying to stay focused on the film), some of whom may have done Oscar nominee worthy jobs, to have their work forever associated with the killings.

    Saw this yesterday... I would be lying if I said I wasn't nervous in the movie theater. We went to the first showing of the day yesterday and I found myself jumpy. But the movie itself was fantastic. Maybe the best of the three but in a different way. I found myself several times with my mouth open just in shock with some of the twist and turns of the plot.

    I saw it this morning and liked it better than I thought I would. Bane's voice was just downright silly, but I got used to it. I liked the big twist at the end--I totally didn't see that coming! Like the last one (and maybe the first one, just don't remember it being an issue then), there were too long speeches, but that's kind of a Nolan thing. The theater was pretty packed, which is unusual for even blockbusters on the early Sunday showing. We were thinking maybe people felt safer going in the bright light of day.

    I read that there was some kind of hint of a next film, even though this director is done. Was that after the credits or something that just happens near the end of the actual movie?

    Christopher Nolan was pretty definite that this was the end of this particular franchise. That being the "Dark Knight Trilogy". I am sure in a couple of years someone will reboot Batman. There are plenty of graphic novels around so I am sure someone out there will do it.

    How did Anne Hathaway do as the Cat Woman? Michelle Pfeiffer did such a fabulous job as the Cat Woman that I just have a very hard time picturing an actress best know for the Princess Diaries playing her. I just can't see Anne Hathaway in the same company as Julie Newmar and Eartha Kitt.

    Saw it this weekend, loved it, and want to see it again. I too was a bit jumpy when THE SCENE started, and could see how folks didn't realize what was happening was real. Saw the movie at Arclight, and they always have someone introduce the film. During that introduction, he spoke about the security and safety of the patrons. Anne's Catwoman was good, she clearly loved playing the role. The ending is setup for "Robin" to continue the work in Gotham City.

    I really liked it, but then again, I am a huge Bale fan

    I love love love love Christian Bale. I have since Empire of the Sun.

    I also love that he went to Aurora, CO to spend time with the victims of that horrible, insane shooting incident.

    We saw this last night and I really liked it. There was so much to it and I thought it was all well done. I liked Anne Hathaway as Catwoman and think her 'sexy' was much more understated than Michelle's was. I think I'd like to see a Robin movie. He was certainly shown to have the heart and integrity for it. I admit, as THE scene started, I got goosebumps imagining what happened.
