I love how much of a jerk that Alfred is in The Dark Knight,

Bruce: Alfred, Rachel, she’s dead, I never meant for this. Oh god, my one love, blown up…

Alfred: YOU BROUGHT THIS UPON YOURSELF, DID YOU THINK THE CRIMINAL UNDERWORLD WOULDN’T FIGHT BACK? YOU STRUCK FIRST, MASTER WAYNE.

Batman Begins is full of so much bad acting and terrible dialogue.

But it’s still good, because we understand it’s a beginning to something better. 

But man.

That young Bruce Wayne.

No.

So much melodrama and terrible line delivery.

Goddammit I’m drunk.

People I’ve met from Tumblr:

The worst part of The Dark Knight is that Bat Pod scene where the two little kids are (for some reason) sitting in the backseat of a car parked in the underside of an expressway by themselves and they are pretending to shoot the other parked cars nearby with their finger-guns (???) and then OH MAN THE BAT POD BLOWS UP STUFF so the kids are like OH MAN DID WE DO THAT OH MAN COMEDY KIDS ARE GONNA LOVE THIS SHIT.

I guess my biggest disappointment regarding The Dark Knight Rises is that it wasn’t the movie I wanted after the credits rolled on The Dark Knight.

At the end of TDK the Batman is a true vigilante. During his second outing he is somewhat revered by the media and police force, and despite a unit attempting to discover his identity most people are happy to have him around as he is genuinely making Gotham City safer each night. Cops aren’t firing upon him, he isn’t an outlaw in the sense that he has as much to fear each night as the criminals he hunts.

Following TDK I anticipated a film where he truly was against the law, in a harsh struggle to remain a force of good but seen as a villain. The pain and anguish he felt in the first two movies were nothing, now he has nothing to lose — Rachel is dead, Harvey (the one true hope for Gotham) is gone, and the city sees him as a cop killer. But he must continue, and he is worn thin. 

Enter the true villain, Bane, a mastermind with a physical edge who unleashes Arkham’s inmates and turns a tired, depressed, sleep-deprived Batman to the streets in an attempt to capture the criminals. Zsasz, Joker, Scarecrow, and others, he is worn and beaten and Bane breaks him. 

And he rises, or another does in his stead — Gordon’s son, the only other person to know of Batman’s innocence. 

That’s what I expected.

Nope.

I think one of the biggest missteps in The Dark Knight was the use of CGI to portray Two-Face’s second half.
It was just unnecessary to monster-mash it up with the tendrils and gaping eyeball. When you see the magic that makeup artists put together for horror films this just seems goofy and unnecessary. Really, most of the face isn’t terrible, it’s just that eyeball.
That lone, Crypt Keeper eyeball.
I think that the design crew probably regretted the decision afterward, but oh well.

The Dark Knight is a good movie because I have the desire to revisit it every 6 months or so. There are a lot of satisfying moments, and the plot progression feels very natural and is punctuated by weight and good character development.

The Dark Knight Rises is not a good movie because after watching it twice I have absolutely no desire to revisit it. It feels like a chore, it has very few satisfying moments and it just feels like a bloated mess. When I recall it I don’t play out the plot in a straight progression of events, I have to try hard to remember certain portions of the story and many of the pertinent scenes weren’t done well enough to embed themselves in my memory.

In the mood to tell people how pretty they are.

I’m really smart about really stupid shit.
