Not true. He hates Thor. He hates Amazing Spider-Man even more.

So the WSJ guy flipped in favor this time? That's good to see. So basically Lemire and Morgenster switched places from their TDK reviews.

Dark comic books have always been around, but with a difference; as pictures and words on paper, they've allowed readers to choose their own degree of involvement. "The Dark Knight Rises" allows no choice; it's immersive and assaultive to a degree that could only have been achieved by the conjunction of a quintessentially somber comic and a filmmaker with a complementary sensibility, marshaling the vast technical and financial resources of an entertainment conglomerate. During the Great Depression, moviegoers flocked to escapist films with glittering dancers, happy endings and upbeat songs like "Happy Days Are Here Again." For whatever this movie may say about today's world, it rises to a different occasion and dances to a different tune. Happy days are done and gone.

JOE MORGENSTERN gave it positive, he gave TDK a negative review


We have a FLIP!

Thus negating the AP flip

he is also a top critic

review has spoilers

Last TDKR tweet tonight: I was more negative right after seeing it. Mellowed out since. "Mostly harmless" is a good summation of my stance.

Yup, WSJ review is positive.

He calls it a "Spectacularly black beauty."

The "we are getting negative reviews faster" observation is pretty much useless, considering TDK wasn't under heavy embargo and we got some of these positive reviews weeks before. Of course we are getting negative reviews faster, it's a week out, most critics have seen it, they are all coming out of the gate now.

Man this Christy Lemire review is everywhere...although that's a good thing, I see a bad review, click on it, think (oh my another one) and realise it's one and the same in different publications.

Ah, the legendary Devin.

Guess not all people can see through the "marvel vs dc" nonsense. Overpraising one film and blindly hating another is just... wrong.

Yep. Lemire gave a negative review but Morgenstern gave it a positive. More flip-flopping to come perhaps.

Devin's having an interesting discussion Twitter behind the decision for Beuce to immediately quit after the end of Knight.

Interesting discussion, I say.

Yeah, I remember the embargo for TDK was nowhere near the levels of TDKR's. A ton of positive reviews were released a week prior. Negative reviews followed shortly after.
