Critic Review - Chicago Tribune

It's weak and witlessly crude.

Why should I trust his review? He gave The Dark Knight Rises a rotten review!

Not that I would agree with giving TDKR a rotten review not everyone is going to like it. Everybody does not have to like TDKR. Its annoying because if anyone even says one little negative thing about it, people go crazy

Because Nolan is the last hope in reviving the art of film. The world of movies is turning into a digital wasteland of garbage. If someone can't appreciate what Nolan is trying to accomplish with his Batmans then YES they are missing the boat and their opinions are forfeit...

I understand that. Yes his Batmans are AMAZING. But just because I like it and you like it or anyone else in the world does, that does not mean everyone does. SO my point being that with every great movie there will be a hand full of people who didn't like it and that's FINE. Don't rag on people if they don't like a movie. All that matters is that you like it.

I'll take a enthralling Fincher film over a overrated Nolan film any day of the week.

There are plenty of other directors who are reviving the art of film. To name a few: Steve McQueen, David Fincher, Terrance Malick, Nicolas Winding-Refn, P.T. Anderson, Ben Affleck, Kathryn Bigelow, and yes, Christopher Nolan. There are plenty of art films out there. Not everything can be a masterpiece. Michael Phillips didn't like TDKR, get over it...

Michael Phelps is awesome, but he also might be as smart as his speedo.

Yeah, your're right. I mean everyone has different opinions, right?
