OK. I'm not gonna spoil you guys with any details. But I'm just here to hype you up!!!!

Dark Knight Rises is the best damn Batman film to date. No doubt about that. It's not miles ahead of the previous Nolan films but it is "better". Go see it guys. Just go see it.

Now to the big question every fanboy has been asking. How does it compare to Avengers? Well, let's just say apples and oranges. TDKR is a better film altogether and is very much deeper. Avengers on the other hand is a more "complete" film with elements of action, adventure, comedy, etc. put together. It's been the speculative analysis for months and now I'm saying it's the truth. Which one is better? It's a matter of taste but I'm picking Bats. It's just me.

If you're a comicbook fan. Go watch it. If you like great movies, go watch it. Just go watch it. G*ddamnit watch it!

@ballparkzerk: Your point being what? Say TDKR beats box office records, how does that change your life? How bout if it doesn't beat the Avengers? Would your life be miserable then? Enjoy the movie. Period. No need for comparisons, really.

I wont be able to see TDKR before Wednesday 25th. But Starting from this date, i'll watch the movie 3 times at least if its good as TDK.

#17 Posted by Onemoreposter (4086 posts) - - Show Bio

Saw it tonight. There were some issues, but I'm probably more critical of this film than any in the last 3 years.

It was awesome.

Ending blew me away.

#18 Posted by Mekboy (1199 posts) - - Show Bio

Was pretty damn good.

#19 Posted by Gambit1024 (9890 posts) - - Show Bio

It was good, but I liked TDK just a wee bit more.

I don't go fanboy very often, but I approve of this totally.

It's not that good. Doesn't measure up to The Dark Knight, Avengers, Iron Man 1, or X-Men: First Class. It's a pretty good movie but not a great one, and has lots of plotholes and flaws.

#32 Posted by Gambit1024 (9890 posts) - - Show Bio

@Lvenger: @Deranged Midget: Oh, I'll tell you why the long face: (spoilers for touchier folks)

I was under the impression that they were gonna show the same trailer they showed at SDCC. You know, the trailer where Superman actually did stuff and was so great that it made fans cry. What we got was a few artsy shots of nothing Superman-related at all, a voice over about "the man you wanna become" and all that nonsense, and maybe a second or two of Superman flying. Most people in the theater had no idea it was Superman until the logo flashed on the screen at the very end.

And that's why I wasn't happy.

There's still the Hobbit.

@Gambit1024: See now, while I agree that it wasn't exactly what we expected as a trailer, but look at it as a teaser.

The music was fantastic :P

@Deranged Midget: Oh, I know that it was intended to tease, but the reason I was so mad was because I really thought it was gonna be the one they showed at SDCC. I hyped it up so much to my friends, and then when it was all said and done, they were just like "Really? You cried over that?" Not exactly a proud moment of mine. -_-

And I wasn't even paying attention to the music, lol. Just so angry.

:( I know the feeling. I was telling my friends pre-film that the trailer was going to mind-rattling epic, but it was soooooo short...

Oh well, there's more to come! :)

@Gambit1024: Really? That doesn't sound all that great at all. Nowhere near the SDCC teaser trailer. Even though I couldn't hear or make out much of it.

#39 Posted by Gambit1024 (9890 posts) - - Show Bio

@Deranged Midget: Yeah, apparently the "real" trailer will be around when the Hobbit movie comes out. I hate that LotR stuff, but I will pay $10 to see that trailer.

@Lvenger: Yeah, needless to say it was a disappointment... :/
