It's funny how the first thing we both said to each other when we first met was how tired we were of the whole TDKR debate even though we see the film in such different ways. lol
To clear one thing up though, I actually don't hate TDKR as much as you would think I do. I think the movie is ok and I do like a lot of things about it but I when I say that the movie is "bad", I don't mean that it is bad in the same way how something like Batman & Robin or the Transformers trilogy is bad. I mean that the movie is "bad" going by the standard set by the first 2 films and by the standard that the film is trying to set for itself.
It's all good. I have no problem with you at all Shika. You've always presented your views on the film in a respectful, reasonable and non-antagonistic way. If I ever got heated in any of our debates, it wasn't personal at all, just my passion for the movie coming out. It's fun for a while, but I think there's a point you can reach where it gets a bit old and both of us can probably already anticipate what the other is going to say next. The Joker and I reached this point many months ago, and now we rarely get entangled in debates and when we interact it tends to be regular discussion or agreeing with one another.
And to be fair, when I made that post a couple weeks back or whenever it was, I was kind of in "debate" mode too thanks to milost reigniting everything for a bit. Now things have cooled down again and I'm fine with that.
