lol, c'mon guys. Isn't this beyond nit picking now? Batman has been known to prowl on rooftops and perch on top of gargoyles. He's had the same type of shots in the last two films.

Yes, and as I've written in the post you've quoted, that would have been ok. Prowling rooftops, standing on top of gargoyles, while he's making sure the city is safe. But why is he outside the city, somewhere on a tower? It's not a spot to conveniently get to. He must have driven outside the city, climbed a large tower, gazed upon the city, climbed back down and drove back in. It just doesn't feel like a natural moment when you think about it.

Yeah, I read all of that. I just don't see the reason of even pointing it out, lol. But I do get where you are coming from.

If I were Batman, and had a sweet air vehicle, and have been missing out the incredible view of Gotham for eight years, I'll do the same.

I think its there just to show a) how hard it is to get out, the initial cimb is not the difficult part, it further up that is hard

and b) that the hope is needed, you can see outside you can almost touch it, you can keep trying, but ultimately what u require is more than just a rope attached it is the physical and mental strength you need

That was no longer a "normal" prison... it was Bane's.

Theres an insane amount of nitpicking in here, you can tell the Blu-ray was released a few days ago.

Apparently you didn't know....I was not a big fan of TDK...you just pointed out one of the things I thought was wrong with that movie.

To me...BB was near perfect....and the movies went down in quality after that.

But....I'm not here to rain on anyone's parade...I have given my impressions of the movie in here....and will now move on. If anyone wants to discuss it in Pms, you are welcome, but I won't continue in here and upset the fans of the movie.

Speaking of BB, the only problem I have with it is the third act. It doesn't fall apart or anything, but compared to TDK and TDKR finale's, it just feels very "action by numbers". Fear, fear, fear aside, if the third act was more up to snuff I'd definitely consider it a flawless film. And by flawless, I mean nit picks not withstanding.

BB FTW!

Because they're nice and very supportive!

Well, those were prisoners of Bane so they're probably just people who pissed him off or were on the way of his plans so they're most likely innocents?

TDK

Really dislike how Joker-centric TDK is. Even the freaking Blu-ray cover is the Joker instead of Batman. Pisses me off and I am a big fan of Ledger's Joker.

I'm all about BB but watching TDKR gave me new appreciation for TDK in terms of execution, writing, pacing, and the tightness of the script so that's why I'd give the edge to TDK. I do LOVE certain things in TDKR and I'd put those at the upper half of my favorite things in the trilogy like overall acting of the entire cast, being more Bruce-centric, Batman/Catwoman dynamic, etc. But TDKR is also the movie among the 3 that I dislike the most things.

Seeing as how the League views what's right and wrong, I think it's best to assume everyone down in the Pit was wrongfully accused.

One of the blu-ray covers has Joker on it. The other two have Batman;

Same as myself. After watching TDKR it made me see how much better the first two movies were done.

I rank them;

TDK
BB
TDKR

That's how I interpreted it.

And I suppose (assuming some are not innocent which I doubt) it's also to show Bruce's character in that he sees good in people and he figured that they deserve a 2nd chance in life.

Ah well, you don't normally poke your head in here aside from keeping us in line, so I'd forgotten.

For me BB was still too formulaic comic-booky and I really appreciate the real-world connotations and the immediacy of TDK and TDKR. But all three are really quite good, so it's just personal preference from this point.

In BB, he lived with the criminals but never became one of them. In TDKR, he lived with the criminals (or well, what Bane considered criminals) and he allowed them to help him.

Or rather, the criminals he was associating himself with either acted out of desperation (stole food so they wouldn't starve) or were really out for themselves, like the gang who was stealing WE stuff. In the pit he discovered real friendship and kindness. I mean, that prisoner really didn't HAVE to go and fix his back.

But maybe he was just sick and tired of having to baby Bruce all the damn time.

Yup. Watching all 3 so close together (I watched BB and TDK the day before watching TDKR) made it easier for me to see the differences (and similarities) among the 3. TDK benefitted the most because I developed more appreciation for it.

Nice connection.

Plus, he owes them after he destroyed their TV.

Agree with C. Lee that everything went down from film to film. Begins was brilliant. TDK was darn good. And TDKR was ok.

The second one you posted wasn't released in the U.S., or at least it wasn't when I bought the film in December 2008. The first one you posted is the slipcover of the one I bought. So they gave us a slipcover with the worst poster ever and then the actual cover art was the Joker. I threw away the slip cover because I hate that Batpod poster. I wish the actual cover art was the second one you posted (I love that particular Batman poster), but instead it's the Joker.

Then they gave us a limited number of special features and a harshly manipulated transfer (Edge Enhancement out the wazoo, some DNR, and altered color timing). Just a bad release all the way around. I hope they give the film a new transfer for the UCE trilogy next year, and I hope to hell the trilogy cover art is just Batman.

I don't like slipcovers in general. It just adds another step between finding the movie on the shelf and then putting the disc in the machine, and you have worry about damaging the slipcover because it's some flimsy cardboard. The TDKR Blu-ray doesn't automatically play the movie like the Blu-ray disc for Batman Begins and The Dark Knight either, adding more time to get to the movie. People with the (legal) digital-only versions at least don't have to put up with any of this though they get inferior quality.

Given Ledger's nationality, it figures that you Aussies got a Batman cover and we got stuck with a Joker cover.
