the avengers was way better than this it was simple but great fun and not many plot holes!i agree this is one of my fav movies ever but still avengers would have been nominated best pic if I was a judge!
Feb 10 - 12:20 AM
With all honesty, I didn't think The Avengers was anything really special. It was thrilling and well-acted, but it just felt like an average superhero film. DKR, however, is a massive cut-above.
Feb 14 - 08:30 PM
Really? You want to watch a superhero movie or a soap opera? If you said superhero movie, then Avengers is the best movie in that department. For me, TDKR is on a sub-par standard like Elektra or Catwoman.
Feb 14 - 11:46 PM
I don't know about Elektra, but Catwoman was okay.
In the category that you just mentioned, I would say the best superhero movie is Spider-Man 3. Yes, SM3 is my favorite. Sue me.
Feb 15 - 05:32 PM
Although it was by far the worst, it is still your opinion. I still respect your opinion though. For me it's kind of hard to determine the best one.
I loved Captain America, Thor, The Amazing Spiderman, The Punisher, Blade and The Incredible Hulk. For me those were the best. (Although The Avengers was the ultimate superhero movie.)
Feb 15 - 11:30 PM
Are you seriously telling me that SM3 is the worst superhero movie? It had great character development, better villains, more plot, and amazing CGI. I think the worst superhero movie ever made was Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. The first GR was okay, but the second one was horse manure.
P.S. I don't think The Punisher counts as a superhero movie.
Feb 18 - 07:57 AM
SM3 was the worst of the three Raimi made and for the reasons you mentioned. I don't know what you saw, but kudos to you.
Punisher is equally worthy of being a superhero as Captain America or Batman. Batman is an ordinary man in a suit, gadgets and the money to back it up, why would Frank Castle be any less with the same assets (minus the money)? At least Punisher doesn't acts like a pussy when the shit hits the fan...
Feb 18 - 09:44 AM
yea the avengers was the best but that's your opinion no hard feelings!
Feb 16 - 12:26 AM
If you like Batman's and Bane's voices you will dig this:
Feb 6 - 02:04 PM
Thank go it wasn't nominated for anything... Even though awards are overrated...
Feb 3 - 08:59 PM
OH come on! even though it wont win an Oscar it should have been nominated for best sound editing( instead of hobbit),visual effects, and best score..... I love this movie leaving out the errors... just because dark knight was a masterpiece everyone is judging this movie and blaming chris...who happens to be my fav director...anyway avengers was way better than any of the movie and is my favourite movie of the year along with life of pi and the dark knight rises!
Feb 8 - 05:53 AM
The best movie of the year in my opinion was The Hobbit.
Feb 18 - 07:58 AM
Yes, valid points, I may have been too harsh on the subject. Best sound editing and best score would have been a worthy mention of the movie.
Feb 8 - 11:09 PM
nice job! add me and check ut some reviews! oh and by the way guys don't compare avengers and tdkr! compare tdkr and skyfall....give your opinion and post it here!
Feb 9 - 04:46 AM
It should just win one oscar: Best Everything. Bring on the hate, bitches.
Feb 2 - 07:57 PM
It did not get any Oscar nominations at all, actually.
Feb 15 - 05:33 PM
The acting was horrible. Hathaway is a joke. The story must have been written by a 12-year old due to all the inconsistencies and errors. Predictable and comical. Partially due to the cartoon voices used by both Batman and Bane.
Jan 21 - 02:32 PM
Are you kidding me?
Jan 24 - 03:08 PM
you're literally too stupid to insult...
Feb 2 - 11:27 AM
Exactly. It's a waste of time.

I'm laughing now...
Jan 20 - 09:07 AM
Think the only acting nomination I wouldn't be offended by would be Gary Oldman. I think his brilliant turn as Commissioner Gordon was lost in the shuffle a bit. I loved the seen with him and Gordon-Levitt when Bane outs him. I think TDK was the only movie that really lived up to the cast it had because that's the only movie I can say was the best performance by any of them (Ledgers). I've seen Bale, Cotillard, Caine, Oldman, Freeman, Hathaway, Neeson and especially Hardy in better roles.

I'd love to see you fail miserably, Danny!
Dec 28 - 01:30 PM
Oh yeah, Danny. We all have faith in you. You'll make Steven Spielberg look like a chump.
Dec 28 - 06:09 PM
I thought Gary Oldman should have got a Supporting Actor Nomination for The Dark Knight in 2008. Not for this one not enough screen time and acting but for that he sure did.
Jan 4 - 09:27 PM
Ok this is what i nominate it for if i were a oscar judge.
Best Supporting Actor (Tom Hardy)
Best Supporting Actress (Anne Hathaway)
Best Original Score
Best Sound Mixing & Editing
Best Visual Effects
To be honest i don't really care about the academy awards or critics, i honestly think there overrated, whenever i look at a movies reiviews, i go to imdb first, those are the most fair.
Dec 19 - 08:34 PM
Guarantees: Visual Effects, Sound Mixing, Sound Editing.
Reasonable Possibilities: Cinematography, Film Editing, Art Direction.
Long-Shots: Best Picture, Director, Adapted Screenplay, Original Score, Acting Nominations.
Dec 12 - 11:56 AM
Very reasonable predictions, I agree.
Dec 25 - 08:43 PM
For what? Certainly not best actor for Christian Bale... that guy's as boring as a rice cake.
Dec 9 - 10:28 AM
Val Kilmer was the best Batman in my opinion (Michael Keaton was the best Bruce Wayne).
Feb 19 - 11:40 AM
U ARE An...........u know what
Feb 21 - 09:35 AM
.. we really can't blame ourselves for setting our expectations too high since we saw what Heath has done for The Joker. We're all thinking that Bane with Tom Hardy would be as good as Heath. But personally, i enjoyed how they somehow ended the trilogy with a connection with the League Of Shadows. But it's downfall is it's too many characters.
Dec 8 - 08:35 AM
This isn't a biased statement: I think the only categories TDKR could get nominated for are Sound Editing/Mixing, Visuals (maybe), Best Score, and Best Production Design.
I honestly think this is the most overrated movie of 2012, it's not bad but it was tremendously disappointing in my opinion. And please don't say "stop bitching", because the movie isn't flawless.
Dec 7 - 01:15 PM
There were only a couple of scenes during the entire movie that did not feel awkward. I have seldom seen such bad acting. There was also a complete lack of humor. As all of Nolan's movies, this one as well was filled with lifeless characters.
Batman's (assumed) death was a scene blatantly stolen from 'Angels & Demons'.
The villain was about the most ridiculous villain in the history of movie making.
Dec 7 - 12:03 PM
this movie was 3.5-4 stars at best. Very underwhelming sequel to the masterpiece "The Dark Knight"
Dec 6 - 03:58 PM
Totally agree, I'd give it 1 star because of Hardy and Gordon-Levitt. It was overhyped and fell way short with a confusing plot and very uneven pacing. It failed to capture the innovation storytelling the previous installments had, I felt it was rushed just to compete against The Avengers.
Dec 7 - 08:25 AM
I don't think you understood the movie as this film had no plot holes. I write TV for a living and one of my jobs is to look for plot holes while reading or watching a script/film and TDKR was near perfect. I think you were just bored which is why you did not like it. BTW if you knew anything about the character of Catwoman you would know Nolan did her justice.
This film is great on many levels and most people have no idea what the clear messages even are sadly. TDKR was very anti left/Obama and made great points about where America is headed in the next decade. You should watch it again but think of it as more than just a comic book film but more of a political crime drama as that is what it is. Even Nolan said so
Dec 14 - 10:31 AM
Augustus, 3.5-4 is a GOOD rating.
(or did you mean out of 10?)
Feb 19 - 11:41 AM
I never said it was bad
Feb 20 - 08:49 PM
Hanno Van Helsdingen
Worst Batman! Please tell me if I am wrong but did anyone follow the dialogue coming form Bane's mask/mouth. Sound was horrible and story boring. No award from me....
Dec 5 - 04:11 AM
Maybe your hearing isn't so good. Are you an old person or something? Because only the old people I know had difficulty understanding Bane.
Dec 6 - 05:59 PM
And when I say "old", I mean a senior.
Bane, the British football hooligan ? Bane, the most ridiculous villain ever put in a movie ? Who cares what he said anyway, since the entire script was just as bad.
Dec 7 - 12:06 PM
I really think people that could not understand what Tom Hardy was saying are just as retarded as those that could not understand Bale in TDK. TDKR was great and that is coming from an award winning writer.
Dec 14 - 10:32 AM
I completely agree with you. They probably could understand them just fine but were just looking for trouble.
Dec 28 - 01:18 PM
Holding out hope that they do something like they did with lotr and Jackson and atleast give Nolan a best director nom. Cinematography and a bunch of other technical noms would be good.
Dec 4 - 11:39 AM
Dec 13 - 07:03 AM
Best Original Score, Best Visual Effects, Best Production Design
Dec 4 - 07:55 AM
Hopeful Nominees: Best Picture/ Best Original Score/ Best Editing/ Best Sound Editing/ Best Sound Mixing/ Best Production Design/ Best Visual Effects
Dec 3 - 09:42 PM
The Dark Knight Rises was a great movie. sure it was flawed but the other two weren't exactly perfect either and they were still tremendous movies. the people who are giving this movie so much hate are just dumb trolls. Sadly though, I doubt this will get a Best Picture nod because The Dark Knight didn't receive one either. that's the Oscars for you.
Dec 3 - 08:42 AM
I did not like the movie because it was the exact same thing as Batman Begins, so basically, Nolan ripped off his own movie to retell the same story... How unimaginative can you get?? The cast was great, don't get me wrong, but they were eye-candy, having that ensemble should have made the movie better than the previous 2 installments, but the story and script fell way short!!
Dec 3 - 03:39 PM
The whole point of The Dark Knight Rises is that it's a continuation to both Batman Begins and The Dark Knight. that's why you have all the plot elements about the League of Shadows and Harvey Dent's death and how his crimes were covered up. Nolan wasn't being unimaginative. He's a very creative film maker and the story is just as great as it was in Begins and TDK. There was very little wrong with both the story and the script. Batman & Robin is a great example of a Batman film done wrong and TDKR is a billion times better than that piece of crap.
Dec 4 - 08:14 AM
Just because you didn't see the major flaws of the movie doesn't make your argument worthy. That's your point of view and your own problem.
And just for information purposes, I'm not bitching, I'm giving my opinions based on very valuable reasons. I have the right to express myself just like you have to right to do the same.
Your just being sour because somebody doesn't like this piece of crap movie...
Dec 4 - 01:32 PM
BTW. if you don't like TDKR, fine. but can you stop the bitching please? it's getting tiresome and you're pissing off everybody who likes the film including me.

First off, why is it ok to praise the movie but not criticize it? Second, why would you get so upset because others criticize a movie?
Dec 13 - 12:35 PM
Dec 14 - 10:33 AM
I liked Batman & Robin...
Feb 19 - 11:43 AM
Best picture! Duuuuuhh!
Nov 30 - 07:33 PM
so it was worse than Batman & Robin, Catwoman, the 1990 Captain America, Ghost Rider and Green Lantern? seriously, grow up. The Dark Knight Rises was awesome.
Dec 3 - 08:35 AM
Jonathan you have clearly never seen Superman III, Superman IV, Batman Forever, Batman and Robin, or X-Men Origins.
Dec 3 - 12:02 PM
It was worse than X3, Daredevil, Elektra, Superman 4, and Spider-Man 3? Screw you, Jonathan.
Dec 3 - 02:39 PM
This Movie was way better that all of you combined because it is amazing and if you disagree than you are idiots.
Also there is NO!! awards for worst in picture that would defeat the propose, Idiots!!

I would like to point out that "Batman Returns" could be considered worse than this movie as well, but I understand that others may disagree.
Dec 15 - 11:30 PM
No Oscars for this rape of a good series I grew up on. I hated how that stupid Middle Eastern version of Bane was not Bane at all. It was a horrible movie. The music was greater. The Oscars are lazy and it has to move on. Movies like this are a poison to our minds and it has to be studied a lot more to understand how stupid our entertainment has become.
Nov 30 - 04:01 PM
Huh? Rape of a good series you grew up on? Prior to Nolan's films, there were maybe two decent Batman movies - Batman '89, which is incredibly dated and flawed, and Batman Returns, which was hardly a Batman movie but was a very good Tim Burton movie.
Dec 2 - 05:45 PM
In Your Dreams
Wrong. There is an entire series of graphic novels (you know, those coloring books Batman was fucking BASED on?) going back to the 50s, not to mention the animated series culminating in Mask of the Phantasm which in my opinion is one of the best Batman iterations of our generation. Besides Batman Begins (which served as a prequel to the Keaton films) Nolan's contributions are mostly right-wing propaganda; ultra dark, ultra cynical, and frankly not very fun. Also: they are very hard to follow. Go pop your ADD meds, fanboy.

I assume your idea of a good Batman film consists of nipples on the Bat-suits and penis-shaped Batmobiles.
Dec 3 - 02:41 PM
"Movies like this are a poison to our minds". Yea. Sure, buddy. What a stupid comment.
Dec 3 - 09:48 PM
Maybe a few technical categories, but that's about it. I'd like to see Tom Hardy get a nomination, he was phenomenal (especially if you look at the way he acts with his eyes). If he were in a better movie, that was able to utilize his performance in a more creative way, then maybe.
Nov 30 - 01:45 AM
The only thing I noticed about Hardy's eyes were the mask seemed to make him cross-eyed at points. I know what a good actor Hardy is, but I think the mask and voice modulation were a mistake. You have to have a mask because it's Bane, but you don't need one that inhibits the actors performance.
Dec 25 - 02:50 AM
They owe it to Christopher Nolan and Batman fans to nominate The Dark Knight Rises after The Dark Knight didn't receive Best Picture.
Nov 26 - 01:06 PM
No one owes C. Nolan anything. If anything, He owes Batman fans and movie goers an aplogy for writing a lame-ass script with a clunky story. Batman disappears for almost entire 2nd act of the story and I love how his "prison" just happens to not have a roof. Holy implausability, Batman! And then the Caped Crusader gets his ass kicked by the bad guy and the only thing that saves him is his Catwoman-like friend on a high-tech motorycle. This is supposed to an epic conclusion to a superhero trilogoy, huh? Weak, and extremely disappointing.
Dec 1 - 03:08 AM
You missed the point Bane gave about how giving the prisoners a glimmer of hope (the opening in the pit) is torture.
Dec 2 - 05:43 PM
You missed the point where Batman is not a pussy hiding in the background and comes out just because no one else will, he would have done his duty no matter what!! He took a backseat, again, and it showed us that he was an incompetent hero... And above all else, the story was the weakest of them all. Aside from having probably the best ensemble cast in a movie, it was wasted with a poor executed script. The movie was more superficial, it had no soul or emotions.
Dec 2 - 11:29 PM
Wow Jonathan, you missed so much it's not even funny. The revenge aspect in Nolan's movies was worked through by the end of Begins. He's Batman and ceases to be Batman because A. He's seriously injured himself and it's not realistic to believe a man can do what he does and take those kind of beatings on a nightly basis and be physically OK 2. Because he wasn't needed anymore, with his sacrifice at the end of TDK he's won for the most part and 3 most importantly because after losing Rachel he doesn't have the drive to do it anymore so he lets the previously mentioned things take him out of the fight. You have a very limited view of what Batman is. I personally am familiar enough with the character and his arc to know that Batman isn't just one thing. Bob Kane Batman is completely different from 60's Adam West Batman whose different from Frank Miller, Tim Burton, Grant Morrison, etc ad noseum. I personally would place Christopher Nolan's contribution somewhere below Frank Miller and Bob Kane, but slightly above Alan Moore and Tim Burton and miles above Joel Shumacher, Grant Morrison and Adam West. Anyone who claims Nolan has left the Batman franchise poorer than he found it is horribly misguided IMO.
Dec 25 - 02:59 AM
It was the realistic of way showing us Batman, I get it. But it failed to show us THE Batman we all know and love. That's why I felt that TDKR was only mediocre. I saw the exact same plots and story arc than Batman Begins. That's the reason why I was disappointed. Nolan should have came up with something innovative instead of redundant.
Feb 15 - 11:40 PM
Did you even watch the movie? That "high-tech motorcycle" was made by and for Batman, and he gave it to Selina so she could escape the city. Instead of just leaving, she decides to help him. Also, the prison isn't just missing a roof, it's basically a giant hole that's virtually inescapable.
And what the fuck makes a story "clunky"? I know you just took that term from some critic's review. Maybe next time you shouldn't listen to critics who use really dumb adjectives to describes movies.
Dec 3 - 12:09 PM
Lee, I'd be offended by your rant if any of that was punctuated and spelt correctly and if any of your criticisms were legit and true.
Dec 3 - 03:08 PM
Amen to Magnus Grant.
Dec 28 - 01:26 PM
Nov 24 - 01:00 PM
technical indeed, though it worth for Best Picture
Nov 21 - 09:56 AM
I loved this film tremendously... but let's be realistic: the Oscar directive already said that they didn't like TDKR. Truth be told, I can't see this getting any more than three or four TECHNICAL nominations, and winning none. Probably losing them all to some crappy popular blockbuster like "The Avengers". Awfully bad, because Tom Hardy was the best actor in the series after Heath Ledger... speaking of whom I seriously doubt he would have gotten an Oscar for the Joker if he were alive. TDK deserved to be nominated for Best Picture... this is way down that standard. But hey, they nominated "Avatar" in 2009. They did! Along with masterpieces like "Inglourious Basterds" and "District 9". Who says we can't be getting this and Avengers nominated this year, anyway?
Nov 20 - 03:05 PM
Avatar was a great film in my opinion. And Inglourious Basterds was masterful. Great movies. I am a bit skeptical about District 9 as well, but look at how Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close and War Horse got nominated this year. Brilliant movies, but not Best Picture material.
Nov 22 - 04:41 AM
I was pleasantly surprised the Academy nominated District 9. One of my favorite films, and not typical Oscar fare.
Dec 3 - 09:50 PM
"District 9" is top notch sci-fi for grownups. "Avatar" is pure-quality commercial filmmaking. We can argue about it, but the result is pretty clear to me. TDKR will not be nominated for Best Pic. I really doubt it. If any blockbuster makes that category, it'll be "Argo" and perhaps, with some luck, "Django Unchained."
Dec 14 - 09:18 PM
Lincoln is a shoe in for a nom and turned a tidy profit at the BO.
Dec 25 - 03:03 AM
2011 had some not-so-good movies like war horse, extremely loud, tree of life, etc. yet they were all nominated. i really hope this movie would be nominated for best picture. it is, in fact, my favorite movie of this year. above argo, looper, skyfall, and the avengers.
Nov 24 - 01:02 PM
War horse was actually a great film, better than this worthless excuse of a movie... TDKR is even far from being top 20 material for anything except "biggest disappointment" of the year!
The Amazing Spider-man, John Carter, The Avengers, Dredd, Looper, Premium Rush, Skyfall are just a few that were better than TDKR.
Dec 2 - 11:24 PM
There you go. How do you expect to be taken seriously if you put a fashist cop, a sexually ambiguos Martian cowboy and a group of semi-dressed adults against the Dark Knight?
Dec 28 - 08:10 AM
I don't put them specifically as characters ahead of Batman. I'm saying the story and the way it was told to be inferior to the movies I mentioned. I don't judge a movie solely on it's protagonist, but by the entirety of the movie.
Feb 15 - 11:37 PM
The Dark Knight Rises is the best Batman film by far. Just a great satisfying conclusion to a great trilogy and the best film of the year. These films among my favourite films of all time.
Dec 3 - 08:58 AM
Yeah well it's only getting nominated for like 2 or 3 all technical
Nov 15 - 02:54 PM
Tom Hardy for best Supporting Actor.
Nov 15 - 02:15 AM
He's not even a long shot
I agree, he doesnâ??t stand a chance.
Nov 22 - 04:39 AM
He deserves it, but he will not get near close.
Dec 14 - 09:19 PM
I hope that it at least gets nominated, although i dont see it winning... but some recognition would be nice.
Nov 14 - 12:47 PM
Wouldn't mind seeing them win something to remember it by, Batman may never get this good again for a long time.
Nov 12 - 11:08 PM
Dec 28 - 01:29 PM
Not for Best Picture or directing though. Technical nominations for sure.
Nov 12 - 04:23 PM
