Re: TDKR Oscar Chances? - Part 1
I don't know if SR and TDKR really compare in any way. The "newness" factor for SR was a lot stronger considering it had been 19 years since the last Superman film and 26 years since the last good one. TDKR was coming off a monster critic and commercial success from 4 years prior and a lot of people went into TDKR more than willing to tear it down because of how popular the franchise was.
It's easy to forget how much hate (or least claims of "overrated") TDK got before TDKR came out. There was/is a very vocal minority there.
