THE DARK KNIGHT RISES

I absolutely love it!

I never thought it would be "BATMAN SOMETHING," and stuff such as SHADOW OF THE BAT sounded exactly like something a fanboy would come with. Frankly, I had no idea what it would be and anything that I came up with sucked as well. So I'm totally down with it.

The only title of the three Nolan films that was wasn’t initially keen on was BATMAN BEGINS. However, it grew on me. I suspect those of you who either don’t like it or are kind “meh” on it, give it time and I bet you’ll come around to it.

As far as what the title may mean or what theme it’s alluding to, I’m sure that Batman -- known as “The Dark Knight” at the end of the previous film -- will rise and return to his position as Gotham City’s hero and protector.

No Edward Nigma

Fine by me -- though I would have liked to see Chris’ take on the character. I know many people are thinking “Thank Goodness!” about the no Nygma revelation, but I’m sure those people only envision The Riddler as Jim Carrey or Frank Gorshin yucking it up in green tights. Obviously if Nolan and co. had used the character, they would have done something completely different. And I for one would have liked to have seen it.

I must not that the besides The Riddler, Catwoman has been the most mentioned B3 villain candidate. Nolan dismissed Nygma, but he didn't nix Selina. I'm just saying.

No 3D

THANK GOODNESS! I've been against this from the moment I heard that Warner Bros. intended for all their tentpole films to be released in that format. Here's open the whole thing is shot in IMAX!
