I agree with you 100% Nick. Just like when Iron Man and The Dark Kinght were compared the summer they came out, I think these two films will be. I think they will both be great, but both very different from one another.

I agree with ya. I remember thinking how much I enjoyed both Iron Man and The Dark Knight; Both were very well done movies, good story, characters etc. I remember thinking IronMan was a more 'fun' movie since it wasn't as dark but that TDK was the better of the two. But I'll eventually burn a hole in both dvd's  as well as stop what I'm doing/watching when I see either one on tv.

LOL thanks for that
The problem with America is stupidity I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself

Just got out of Batman, better than I thought it would be. I thought it was somewhat predictable though. So overall, enjoyable but no where as good as the first 2.

Old school comic guy here with no knowledge whatsoever of who the new bad guy is:

Why does he look NOTHING like the character on the cover of the graphic novel? That thing on the cover is so ripped it would have to be CGI in a movie.

Is there some backstory there or could they just not find anyone that huge who could actually act?

I'm sure everyone has.  They just chose not to discuss it here.

I'm going to see it this afternoon but definitely saddened by that news, we have enough real world problems so when people do something for fun some other distraught/deranged idiot has to ruin it for everyone else.

I don't understand why you would go to all the trouble of rigging your apartment with sophisticated explosive devices, and then TELL the cops about it after you get arrested. What was the point in the first place? He only wanted it to explode for robbers?

Sick, sad world.

Maybe he had enough kills for one day.  Telling the cops or not telling them doesn't make him sound any more sane.

RE the movie, I loved it. Just as good as TDK, although I recommend brushing up on your Batman Begins knowledge before seeing it, as there are tons of flashbacks.

People keep wanting to compare it to Avengers and while I personally preferred TDKR more, it's really had to compare the two since they're both completely different movies.
