The Dark Knight Rises
In TDKR, you get to watch Batman build himself back up again. I really rooted for the dude. Bane is a decent enough villain, but also one that's easy to mock. Just put your hand over your mouth and read lines like the villain in that one James Bond movie: "No, Mr. Bond, I expect you to diiiiie." But he rocks a kickass winter coat. Bane is cool with me. BUT if you had The Joker in this movie instead of Bane? That would have been a perfect movie.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt is the bomb, per usual. I really loved him in this, and if they ever made more, it'd be awesome to have him continue it. Anne Hathaway/Catwoman is surprisingly awesome. Funny. Hot. Awesome. I heart Anne Hathaway and her big nose, so I'm glad her character and portrayal of Catwoman turned out to be good.
So my first impression on this movie is that I loved it. Is it going to fall apart under repeated viewings like TDK did for me? Don't know. Also - technically this movie is longer, but didn't feel like it. Also also - I didn't see it in IMAX because the theater was sold out for the whole weekend. So I'll be watching it again there soon.
