Warner Brothers Pictures Contest

How about that? I didn’t think the fine folks at Warner Brothers cared about us, but they do, they really do! They are giving us a Blu-ray Combo pack to give away. What’s the movie, it will be a surprise to you and me. We will say it will be either the awesome Magic Mike (one of my favorites or 2012) or The Dark Knight Rises (Great Blu-ray, eh movie).

Holy Property Values, Batman! Greg takes on The Dark Knight with a warning to the fine citizens of Gotham City.
The citizens of Gotham City think they have the hero they deserve, but really, they’ve got the hero they just happened to get. Greg Karber calls on the populace to reject this sort of fatalism, forget the Batman, and move to the Midwest – while they still have their lives.

Dark Knight Rises

Batman Begins was unprecedented. The Dark Knight was astonishing. The Dark Rises is merely… brilliant. At least, that was my first thought after seeing The Dark Knight Rises (not in IMAX, unfortunately, but that’s neither here nor there). Then I thought that maybe I felt that way because, even after seeing Batman Begins, the brilliance of The Dark Knight was completely unexpected and that, this time, I was expecting brilliance and getting it came as no surprise.

The Dark Knight Rises

It is times like these when I sometimes hate being a critic. When I walked out of The Dark Knight Rises I was on an high, absolutely loving the film while overlooking some major flaws. I did not find the movie “depressing” at all and left the theater feeling exhilarated and satisfied. The movie at times is just so overwhelmingly gorgeous in its full 65 Millimeter Imax sized visual splendor that you can’t help but admire grandeur of the storytelling and visual flair of the entire thing. A funny thing happened in the three days since I saw it. I actually had to sit and think about what I actually watched and not how I felt about the experience.

Don’t roll your eyes at me, this isn’t going to be another bashing like The Amazing Spider-Man. Ultimately I’m going to go with my first gut reaction and say, in the beginning of this review, that I loved this movie. However, my head deserves to be heard. There will be some minor spoilers in this review so it is fairly safe to read.

Update

This movie does not hold up well to repeat viewings. The flaws become hard to overlook. Character motivations become big problems and there are gaping logic issues.
