    The Dark Knight Rises (2012)

    I know people will throw rocks at my face but here we go: i didn't like it. Nolan is becoming an hypnotist. He put us in a mood with a couple of tricks and we have the strong impression that we're watching an amazing, deep and significant film.. He did the same with Inception. We were trick to think it's a masterpiece because of it's amazing cinematography and the visual atmosphere on screen. It look so incredible that it can only be good....... Well honestly, it's not. The script is built to make it appear complicated but at the end the TDKR is just a "i got a big bomb" movie. The bad guy is pretty cool but he's really far from a Joker. SPOILER: and the fake-armageddon ending, the fake sacrifice of his life didn't touch me at all. But i get why it work for the people: it look amazing, the music is so good and serious and the camera work is so pretentious, you really have that feeling that you're watching a masterpiece. But at the end something is missing: a good story.

    UPDATE: i saw it a second time to give it a chance..... It was worst. This movie is ridiculous but it hide behind an amazing cinematography.
