Re: Why is everyone slamming TDKR?
Just re-watched TDKR (only my 3rd viewing). I enjoyed it more than before.
The problem before was that I was expecting something as good or better than The Dark Knight which affected my enjoyment of the film.
This time, I really got into the action scenes, the melodramatic attempt at drama, understood Bane's dialogue because of the subtitles. Nolan's having fun in this so I can overlook the poor dialogue and the messy editing of this movie. TDKR isn't as affecting, haunting, focused, influential, and relevant as TDK, but it's still a great popcorn movie.
I have changed my rating for TDKR:
BATMAN BEGINS 8/10
THE DARK KNIGHT 9/10
THE DARK KNIGHT RISES 8/10
