I Ccan't decide whether to watch a marathon of all 3 of the (christopher nolan) Batman movies in theaters for $25 or just dark knight rises in IMAX for some total of around $60 most times.

It is practically impossible to get IMAX tickets now, unless you live in some really small town. I bought mine in March and they sold out a few days later and I live in a pretty small town.

I live next to 3 small towns, 2 of which have decent tickets for sale, just at steep prices.

I'm going to the midnight release even though I didn't really want to. We're probably going to go 1 1/2 hours early, and it's either going to be empty as fuck or already full. Fucking Avatar was empty when we went to the midnight release.

Ok, I just got back from work and I got about 2 hours of sleep last night so I'll try to put my thoughts in the best I can.
SPOILER ALERT BELOOOOOWWWWW (also a decent sized wall of text)
VIEW CONTENT:
Ok so let's start with catwoman. That's probably the thing I heard the most complaints about going into it since it was Anne Hathaway, and many people didn't think she would be very good as catwoman, but she was actually very good, and in all leather... DAYUM.

Next is Bane. I wouldn't say he's better than Joker, but he does do a way better job at raising hell in Gotham than Joker. I mean he literally holds the entire city hostage with a nuclear reactor and turns the city into an anarchy. That's what Joker wanted to do, but couldn't. He's not as maniacal as the Joker, but his plans are a lot better.

Also, I thought I should dedicate a little section to me complaining about the location. Philly just doesn't feel the same as Chicago. I know there may be a little bias in me saying that seeing as I live near Chicago, but still it just felt weird.

Now on to Bruce Wayne. He's not in most of the movie, and same goes for Batman. For a good chunk of the movie he's in prison and he's trying to escape. There really isn't much else to say about Batman/Bruce Wayne especially if you've seen the first two he's practically the same person aside from the fact that he has major injuries.

Another side note about the batmobile. It was really disappointing that he just flew around in that retarded helicopter thing the whole time.

The bat cave was a huge improvement over Batman Begins, but I still didn't really like it. The bat cave is supposed to have so much more tech and stuff all over the walls. But that's such a minor detail that it didn't really hinder my experience at all.

It was sooooo freaking easy to tell who was Talia Al Ghul was pretty much right from the beginning. And although everyon thought Ra's was going to be in it, he's "dead". This also really bugged me since he's supposed to be IMMORTAL as in you can't fucking die. Unless I missed something, then that really bugged me during the movie.

The action scenes were a lot more paced, and there really wasn't as much action. However, the action scenes were so much sweeter when they finally came.

Finally, ROBIN. I think that there's going to be a movie dedicated to just Robin. Christopher Nolan may be done with that franchise, but WB probably isn't. I would be willing to put money on the fact that something with Robin will come out eventually especially the way that they ended it how he just walked into the bat cave, and the platform rose and it's over. I'm expecting a movie for Robin in the future.

So to wrap things up, I started crying a bit at the end (come on, who didn't batman fucking "died") and then I got really happy when I saw he actually lived and he used that program to disappear with cat woman. They definitely closed off Batman really well, and I wasn't really disappointed with how they did it.

And I have a question for those of you who saw it. When and how did he get out of the helicopter before the nuke esploded? That's one thing I didn't really catch on to.

Now I may have missed a few things since it was very late and I wasn't exactly thinking straight, so correct me if I'm wrong on any of this.
All in all, it was a fucking sweet movie. I think I will need to see it again before I start to compare it to Dark Knight, but right now I'd say they're tied. You should definitely go see this when you get the time though

Also, picked up a chick while waiting in line :afro:, so I think it's fair to say that this is the best day so far this year. Now I'm going to sleep since I've been going on 2 hours of sleep today.
