Great film.

Not saying anything else until more people have seen it.

Go do that now. I'll wait.























Why are you still here? Go!

Bane's monologue when he is fighting Batman in the sewer tunnels was absolutely chilling.

Saw it, liked it. My vote 2-3-1. I kinda want to watch the other two again, haven't seen Begins in ages. Probably one of the best trilogies in town, right up there with Indy and Back to the Future.

Is Star Wars no longer a trilogy?

No... no I guess it's not.

Also George went back and improved the first three films so we don't have to feel obliged to like them.

I don't know how I ever managed to shoulder the burden of enjoying Jedi without a CGI toad belching or Hayden Christiansen's paedophile leer.

I just loathe Jedi so much in my old age, that I can't call the trilogy a good one because it brings it down. I also didn't mention LotR, but thats just because i'm lazy and didn't want to try and remember all good trilogies.

Care to elaborate on why you dislike Jedi? I'm interested.

Mostly because of the remake, dance sequence and ewoks. The whole Jaba part is tainted for me. Also it might have seemed cooler when I was a kid.

Not bad, but way more generic high-budget than I expected. Disappointed it didn't live up to TDK's level of pacing and intensity.
This one kinda suffered the LOTR syndrome of "We must go! To a place! For a reason!" > "Now we are here, and we do a thing, but now we must go again, to another place!". For some reason, most of it felt like filler compared to the flow of TDK. I can't even remember Begins, so I can't make a comparison there.

Finally saw it.  The best thing about Bane was definitely his voice.

Such a voice!

I'd follow it to hell I would.

Bane's voice was hard to get used to at first. It was weird. His voice reminded me of that snowman from Courage the Cowardly Dog and Sean Connery.
