Monday Movie Review

The Dark Knight Rises
Now I never saw Batman Begins and I can barely remember The Dark Knight, but even so, I loved this movie. There was so much going on in this, with so many different plot lines, but it all just worked. And I thought the ending was really fitting for the trilogy, and even brought me to tears.

Now I'm not sure the right way to say this, but normally in a movie you watch all these hostage type scenes and think, "This is a movie. This doesn't happen in real life." Except with what happened you can't help but have this thought in the back of your mind that this does happen in real life. And it isn't that people imitate movies, but the opposite. Because if it wasn't already happening in real life, people wouldn't even think to put it into a movie.

On a lighter note, if you are unsure about seeing this whatever the reason may be, I think it would be a mistake not to see this in theaters. It is a long movie, but by the end I would have willingly sat through an hour more. It really is that good, and for now I think it's probably my favorite movie of the year.


  1. I cried towards the end too. We saw it in Imax which was well worth the added price. One of the best movies this year. I think The Avengers is still my favorite though.

  2. I thought it was a perfect ending as well. It was eerie how many of the scenes in the movie made you recall that this COULD happen in real life. My husband asked to watch the first two again before we saw TDKR in theater; I had never seen BB before, and honestly, I didn't pay much attention to it. (Also, it annoys me that they switched from Katie Holmes to Maggie Gyllenhaal.) However, I saw TDK in Imax and have seen it numerous times since then. I thought each of the movies were excellent individually (at least, the last two I know enough of) and thought they made for an excellent trilogy. My husband says we are going to have to see this in Imax before it leaves theaters, which means we will be journeying at least two hours away because sadly, there is no Imax theater here!
