Reactions to the Dark Knight Rises (spoiler-free)

  • If you took the over on the "15 minutes of trailers" prop bet, you're getting paid
  • Before you ask, Hathaway as Catwoman doesn't ruin the whole movie
  • Despite the movie itself being two hours and forty-five minutes long, I actually believe many scenes could have been extended
  • Christopher Nolan has never made a bad movie, and it seems like only a matter of time until he starts putting Oscars on the mantle
  • It only feels cool driving home at night after seeing Batman movies if you are driving stick - automatic is no good
  • Holy shit, what a movie
  • There has probably never been a blockbuster of such acting pedigree - of the main cast, only Tom Hardy and Joseph Gordon-Levitt have not been nominated for/won Academy Awards (and neither of those two are exactly slouches)
  • I am seriously considering seeing this again this weekend
  • Bane is a fabulous villain
  • Okay, one only slightly spoiler-y reaction (highlight for text): Nolan's interpretation has been praised for its realism, and I think this really came through in that DKR emphasized the physical damage wrought on Bruce Wayne's body as a result of his actions as Batman - he physically couldn't remain Batman much longer
