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

I think Begins still holds up after all this time. And Begins made it cool to quote superhero movies again.

There was a time when superhero movies had some pretty weak, dated, and downright silly dialog. Then along comes BB and all of a sudden there were these cool one liners from Morgan Freelman' Fox. Michael Cains Alfred was funny but could be absolutely chillingly emotional and with this ominous air of things to come and wisdom.

And Neesons conveyed Ras al Ghuls dogmatic views and strict presence on screen perfectly.
Watching TDKR and seeing Marion slow knife Batman in the back and then thinking back to BB; hearing Ras al Ghuls line " If someone stands in the way of true justice, you simply walk up behind them and stab them in the heart" makes it hard to argue that one movie makes the rest of the trilogy suffer as a whole; they're all so connected.
