I know a lot of you loved "The Dark Knight Rises". But, being the comic book geek that I am, I just didn't "ooh" or "aah" whenever something happened. I didn't even get shocked by the "twist".
Before heading into the movie house, my overly confident self was 110% sure that 1) Marion Cotillard was going to turn out to be Talia Al'Ghul and 2) Joseph Gordon-Levitt was gonna bust out of his cop suit and turn into Robin. FYI, I used to be in love with Chris O'Donnell and first discovered the distraction known as *ahem* that thing there:
Anyway, I spent 90% of the movie going "He's going to turn into Robin anytime now. Anytime now. Anytiiiiime." Well, I don't want to spoil the movie for those who haven't seen yet, but I'll give the entire thing 3.5 popcorns out of 5. The ending, however, I'd give 500 popcorns out of 5.
Yes, the ending was epic.
Other things that I liked?

Surprisingly, I loved Anne Hathaway as Catwoman. I thought I would hate her coz I don't really like her in any of her movies except the first "Princess Diaries", but she did this role justice. She's no Michelle Pfeiffer, but she was way better than Halle Berry.

JOSEPH GORDON-LEVITT. No explanation needed there, really. I can't wait to get my hands on a copy of the new GQ!!! RAWR.
The Alfred scenes. I teared in every single one of them. Sigh.
Other things I didn't like include Tom Hardy's voice when he plays Bane (he sounds like Darth Vader talking through a McDonald's drive-through box); the fact that I only get to see Tom Hardy's good-looking face for about 5 seconds in the entire movie; the fact that I spent 90% of the movie waiting for Robin to appear; the lack of chemistry between the "love teams" in the movie; the fact that, out of all of the "Inception" actors in the movie, Leonardo DiCaprio was the one missing; and the psycho who shot all of those people in the cinema during one of the screenings in Colorado.
Overall, I'm not really sure if I'd watch this movie again. If I did, I'd prolly fast-forward to the end if I could.
Judging by my Twitter timeline, most people loved the movie. Is this merely because you guys are all Bat-fans (thank, JB, for the term! :p) or was I just expecting too much coz of "The Dark Knight"? To be perfectly honest, I'd prefer to re-watch "The Amazing Spider-Man" over this. Or "Magic Mike". Definitely "Magic Mike". :p
Anyway, since I mentioned both Batman and Spider-Man in this post, watch this:
