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

I love it more already...
I think it's very important to view it on its own merits out of the shadow of hype from TDK or any other high profile superhero film. At the same time, the story in the film is dependent on the previous installments so it is kind of not possible to look at it in a complete vacuum. I don't think a person could get the movie at all unless they had seen the other two.

round to the same place again.
