    Hey just wondering what everyone's favorite scenes were from BB TDK and TDKR. How about each chooses two best from each movie and then the scene you think is most powerful in the trilogy. I'll start it off.
    BB- top two are Bruce training in LoS temple including him burning it to the ground. Second would be the LoS and ras al ghul coming to Wayne manor and burning it down. The whole "justice is balance" thing was so incredibly well done.
    TDK-of course I would say the jokers interrogation scene as he laughs harder and harder with each punch. Totally maniacal. Next would be either jokers ending monologue because I love how he laughs at the fact that he is falling to his death or more likely the harvey dent/ two face joker hospital scene. Jokers monologue is chilling and the two most epic villians sharing the screen was awesome!
    TDKR-I would surely put bane and batmans first fight as it was just so incredibly well done. The lack of musical score built up the intensity...and each of Banes menacing comments was even more and more threatening and menacing. After that I would put banes monologue in front of blackgate. THE DEFINITION OF MIND BLOWING. The way Tom hardy delivered this from behind the mask and the expression in his eyes is astounding. Ive seen the movie four times and this scene never ceases to give me chills in the way it constantly crescendos as the city turns on itself and Banes way of feeding them false hope is the most apparent when he says how Gotham will survive in unison with the bomb ticking down. This would get most powerful in the trilogy if not for.....
    Best Trilogy Scene: the ending of TDK with Gordon, batman, two face and the kid. Incredible acting. Amazing emotion. Fantastic characters. Gripping climax. Chilling realization at the jokers true success. With each word Harvey said I grew more and more amazed at how this white knights heart had turned blacker than coal. The part that always gets me the most is, "why was it I who was the only one who lost everything?" " it wasn't" " the joker choose ME!" " because you were the best of us. He wanted to prove that even someone as good as you could fall." " and he was right" the delivery of that last line sends chills up my spine as Gotham's true hero acknowledges his downfall at the hands of the joker. Hope shattered. Faith broken. Mind blown. WOW amazing finale I can't get enough of it

    "What can you do? You're just one guy"
    "Now we're two."

    (I also love the way he says 'You're a good cop. One of the few"

    The Dark Knight
    The way Joker lunges at Rachel and sniffs her in that creepy way. I wonder if Maggie wasn't exactly acting when she shuddered, followed by the line...

    "I love 'em with a bit of fight in 'em"

    The Dark Knight Rises
    The way all the lights went out right before Batman makes his triumphant return in the tunnel. Amazing!

    I also love the way Selina kicked his walking stick away. Such a cat! (I love cats of course)
