Default Re: Am I the only one that feels like TDKR prevents Nolan's trilogy from being perfec

I'm going to review those videos here in a bit, but can I just point out that nowhere in the film does it ever state that Bruce and Selina are going to live happily ever after? What matters is that at the end of the film, Bruce is happy, and that he is with Selina. There's nothing inherent there to suggest that it will last, or that they'll marry or be together forever, or any of that. He's on a date/spending time with a woman he likes and that he has some things in common with. He's making an attempt to live a normal life, and he's moving on from his previous obsessions, and they're both starting over in a sense, and doing it together, and that's what matters in the final scene. Not whether Selina and Bruce are soulmates, or whether she's The One, or any of that.
