Plenty of threads, and plenty of posts nitpicking this movie to death, so what DO you like about Rises? For me, i like the entire movie, just as i like the entire trilogy as a whole. Like some of the cast said, its one big movie. (also Billy in Scream said that, but in the movie, haha, "its all one big movie") i really liked the emotion in this movie, the third chapter in the trilogy. GCPD Blake talking to Bruce, Alfred talking to Bruce, Selina talking about her life or lack therof, etc. i like the score alot, the costume design alot. they dont come off as "costumes" they come off as real people, wearing real things. Bane's mask i like quite a bit. At the back of his mask, behind his ears are "gas vents" similar to the gas caps on the tumbler. i like his back story, even what wasnt shown, and liked the fact that the only time he let forth full emotion (water works) was when he was without the substance that keeps his pain at bay. i've seen the movie 4 times so far, once at midnight on the opening (the trilogy event) 2 more times at regular theaters, and the last time at IMAX nearly 2 hours away (no imax around these parts, just cattle and crops). seeing it multiple times, it never got stale, it never got "old" and it never felt like nearly 3 hours, because of how well i enjoyed. i'm glad that it never showed blood, or any "glorification" of violence in the way of deaths like most all other movies do. people are so used to that, that when its absent from a death scene they feel "cheated" without it. if someone is that hard up to see a death, i feel they should go rent that trashy movies known as faces of death, or any other "death showcase movie". a movie can be MORE powerful, without any of that imagery, because its taking a classier route rather than the random splashes of stage blood, etc. i am curious, what did you like about it as well? if you didnt like the entire movie, but just certain parts, feel free to please share. there are plenty of other postings and threads to contribute "what you didnt like" so keep those comments separate please.
