The Dark Knight Rises

So I went out and saw the ultimate summer blockbuster movie last night.
From what I understand it overtook The Avengers as having the biggest debut, 214 vs 207 mill.

I'm going to let things soak in a bit more before talking about how much I liked it or what I didn't like, but I am going to say that I thought the Avengers was much better and I also feel that The Dark Knight was much better as well.

Anyone else see it? Opinions? Thoughts?
Maybe this is why I shouldn't watch movies that I have huge expectations for, then generally leave me wanting.


  1. Seeing it tonight. I'll check back in with my opinions later. I will say this. I liked The Dark Knight better than The Avengers simply because I prefer movies that are at least somewhat grounded in reality. I prefer my heroes and villains to be regular human beings and not gods or aliens.

    Just a personal preference thing though. To each his or her own.

  2. Just saw it yesterday, and I really, really liked it.

    Based on what I had heard, I thought it was gonna be just ok, but I thought it was excellent. Not as good as the previous film, but quite good.
