Saw it in Imax last night. Awesome movie.

Definitely slow at times and long but very entertaining and would see again.

Yes, pretty much every fight sequence and city skyline scene is shot in IMAX. Read its over an hour of footage.

But only worth it if you watch in a real Imax theatre. That means Langley or Richmond ONLY.

the numbers are meh
even with the shooting incident the opening weekend only had $2M over TDK's opening weekend.

Even with the avengers being 3D (thus higher ticket prices) I would expect TDKR to be closer to $180M...beating the final Harry Potter movie

Wow, great movie. I don't know why some viewers were expecting crazy plot twists/mind-fucks.. Is this a pre-requisite for a good movie?

I typically never head out to the theatres but glad I did. I was thoroughly entertained for the entire 2.5hrs. IMAX was amazing -much prefer this visual experience over 3D. What a trilogy.

One question: I didn't stay past the credits.. Did I miss anything?

This was the conclusion. It wouldn't make any sense to have a post credits scene. And no.

When talking about Imax, there is only one true way to watch it, and that is 70mm film projectors.

"upgraded" digital projectors are not true Imax. Here's a comparison:



Only two of the Imax theatres in BC will look like the screen on the right: Richmond and Langley (Collosus, I thought it was Cocquitlam, fixed typo). The rest will look like theone on the left. Basically it's bigger than a normal theatre screen, but not Imax. It doesn't have the verticality that immerses you into the movie. Like, the whole fucking point of Imax.

Watched in IMAX, not that worth it imo. The imax scenes are weird becuase they're 4:3 aspect ratio.

IMO, the real benefit of IMAX is the upgraded sound.

Movie wasn't too bad. Gf said it was bad because she expected something more like The Dark Knight with the Joker. Good ending though I really liked the ending because it could mean the movie is going to have a sequel

9/10

Just got back from it, and, I'm sure I'm going to get hated on for this, but I liked it more than TDK. Here's why:
I tend to write a lot when I get into something, prep for a bit more reading than some other posts.

First off, I felt that TDK was too over-hyped for me at the time. And upon seeing it, I was expecting more from Heath Ledger. In no way am I saying he was bad, or even mediocre; he redefined what people believed to be the Joker. He no longer was a cartoonish clown, who used gags and jokes as a form of destruction; he became a monster, one who clearly wanted the world to burn as he watched, not from atop a pedestal, but from an equal standing as everyone around him, so that he could see and feel what he caused. Nolan clearly created something amazing with TDK, and everyone in the film was outstanding. However, these reasons are from TDKR, so they're spoilered.

Spoiler!


Overall, because I've always loved Batman as well as Nolan's take on the franchise, I give it a 10. I hope that if Batman is taken under someone else's name, they take a page out of Nolan's book on how to make movies that keep you coming back for more.

What does living in Canada have to do with anything? Are you saying there are more 70mm Imax film locations in BC? Because there aren't, at least according to the official Dark Knight Rises website. Or was it because I made the typo, and called Colossus Coquitlam? Yeah, my bad

As for the actor, maybe I got the names in the wrong order, I don't know. I can't be bothered to remember when actors have 3 names, 2 of which can be first or last names. Fucking child actors of the 90's, if you're going to become an actual star, fix your name

Rises made 2million more opening weekend but it was also playing in more theatres than TDK

and TDK has made $10mn more in 6 days than Rises did http://www.boxofficemojo.com/ (its on the front page)

I think the bad user reviews are affecting it Im hearing a lot of people saying it sucks :/

Whoever said TDKR sucks didn't know Batman Begins was the first of the trilogy.

TDKR ends the trilogy in the same style it began.
