Re: Am I the only one that feels like TDKR prevents Nolan's trilogy from being perfec
IMO it made it into a perfect trilogy/story. It's my favorite of the 3. When I watch films of course I have to be entertained, but I mainly watch it for directing, writing, acting, editing, cinematography, score. My favorite kind of films are the ones with more emotional weighty themes, where I can take something seriously. The whole trilogy has that balanced out with fun but Rises pushed the boundaries of Imax, it had the most emotion, the best acting from Bale, the full-fledged out score. It didn't repeat TDK's structure or genre. It moved into a war epic or disaster film, meaning it moved into new territory. While expanding on the themes of the previous movie and bringing everything full circle back to Begins with fantastic references. That's how you end a story.
The perfect trilogy even with its flaws.
