Re: Updated Rating for The Dark Knight Rises
I rewatched part of TDKR the other day, and have to say, from the visual standpoint, my favorite section of the film was the beginning. The nighttime shots of Gotham were perfect, especially Selina's exchange at the bar. Lighting and locations really made the film feel like a section out of an episode of The Animated series (and Daggett's inclusion helped it.) However, this aesthetic was lost when they did daytime sequences, such as the train station. With all of the vintage trains and unique/Art-Deco stations, I was disappointed they did not select a station that complemented the design of the nocturnal Gotham: either something gritty and smoke-choked, or a station with a healthy amount of ornamentation.
