Very interesting indeed. Makes me wonder the idea of Nolan comparing TDKR to the biggest thing since the silence era. A disaster genre film with Batman where it focused more on imagery of the city than giving Gotham a bigger voice or soul.

Going by cumulative votes is kind of a flawed system but you get an idea of what they generally liked in 2012. As far as Lincoln goes, I liked it a lot, but cinephiles haven't cared for Spielberg since hell... A.I. Artificial Intelligence.... so Lincoln's absence doesn't surprise me.

I didn't think much of Skyfall but I knew that it would be on their list. Film fans from all denominations love Bond. Plus it's directed by Sam Mendes and was shot by Roger Deakins. It looks gorgeous.

Basically, I was shocked that Rises got enough votes amongst it's members to crack their top ten. His "fans" must be hiding or something because Nolan isn't exactly popular over there.

I saw TDK a few days ago and I liked it more. But I saw TDKR after that and I like that one a bit better overall.

I can't seem to make up my mind

I just view The Dark Knight Trilogy as a series of films that's better than the last. Imo, TDKR > TDK > BB.

A disaster film is a film genre that has an impending or ongoing disaster (such as a damaged airliner, fire, shipwreck, disease, an asteroid collision or natural calamities) as its subject. Along with showing the spectacular disaster, these films concentrate on the chaotic events surrounding the disaster, including efforts for survival, the effects upon individuals and families, and 'what-if' scenarios.

Even if the disaster genre was his intent, I think it's fair to say that he failed big time with the bolded

Efforts of survival? The remaining police trying to find the bomb, people holding up in buildings trying to remain alive and safe. And plus, showing the effects of what has happened after the certain deconstruction of Gotham City with there being martial law, kangaroo courts with people being exiled. Even a moment of some thugs trying to steal one little apple from a kid. The only two things TDKR didn't show is the latter two.

I saw this a few days ago, but I'm having a hard time figuring out which facial features belong to which actors... though I *think* that's Bale's mouth lol.

Can't be Bale's mouth because it's closed.

They probably averaged out all the facial features.

I can detect a tinge of Clooney smirk.

Happy 2013 ladies and gents.

I came VERY close to drunk-posting last night from my phone, but then I saw that amalgam of all the Bruce Waynes and it completely stumped me. Probably for the best, heh.

Even sober though, it still seriously freaks me out

Still looks mostly like Keaton/Bale (or Bales features-eyes, mouth, eyes, on Keatons face/head?--)...but it still awesome.

It kinda resembles a younger Joe Lando from Dr Quinn Medicine Woman back in the 90's sans the long hair. It also kinda resembles Jim Morrison of the Doors...who Val Kilmer played.

Those mash-up of actor's faces always creep me out. They almost always never look better than any of the individual faces.

When watching the film today, I got to the scene where Bruce flubs up in front of Miranda ("Actually this is my party.") and all I could think was Joker's line "Very poor choice of words."
