Default Re: Why is everyone slamming TDKR?

There's absolutely nothing wrong with people not liking or even hating TDKR.

I don't see anyone bashing the film except for a familiar few who did it way before it was released on Blu-ray/DVD personally. Maybe I'll check out areas on the forums that I don't visit, but I see really a dividing of people who like/love it and people who dislike/hate it. No inbetween, much like Batman Returns and Watchmen.

No one expected Bane and Talia; Penguin, Catwoman and Riddler were all very popular choices in the months before Nolan announced Bane and Catwoman as the villains.
Penguin would've been a nice choice as a villain, but personally, I did NOT want to see Riddler at all in a third film. Glad it didn't happen.

Then, as Joker says, some may just not feel the movie measures up to the standards set by the previous two. The people who just "slam" it without giving a reason are likely looking to see if the Batboard folk live up to their reputation.
What do you think the percentage is of people having very thought-out reasons of disliking the film to people who just slam the film without any foundation behind it? 80-20?
