I guess I feel a bit disappointed as I was hoping for something even better than TDK for the conclusion, and for me it did not occur.
Anticipation and hype does that.

I never had much anticipation for any of Nolan's Batfilms simply because I believe in the director and he's never failed me(except for Insomnia, sadly), and since I didn't expect much, I came out of the midnight showing loving TDKR. To me, TDKR is the best of the trilogy, but to each their own.

Last Crusade

Return Of the King
At Worlds End
Back to the Future
And... TDKR
Plus...as a CBM, TDKR does indeed break the curse. Spider-Man 3, X-Men: The Last Stand, Batman Forever, Blade: Trinity, Superman III, whichever ones I forget...please. They can't hold a candle, let alone a matchstick, to The Dark Knight Rises.
