Flash Gordon 7/10

Even better than when I was a kid, because now I can appreciate the corniness.

Batman: The Dark Knight Rises

As someone who wasn't a big fan of the first two films (didn't hate them, but felt slightly bored by them, but appreciate them as well), i loved this movie. Having just finished reading Scott Snyder's Court of Owls, i had a deeper appreciation for the story in TDKR as it demonstrates more how Batman isn't Gotham, nor is Batman simply Bruce Wayne, but that Gotham and Batman are symbols of one another, and the two are very much alive and in need of the other.

From the first time I saw Officer Blake i thought "wow, that dude would have been great if cast as Dick Grayson," we'll wasn't i thrilled when the movie ended with that treat. My only complaint with the character was when his actual name is referred to as being "Robin", why couldn't the lady refer to him as Mr. Grayson?

I really loved this movie though. I could go on and on about what else i liked but its not necessary. I love the returning cameo of Scarecrow and the reveal of Talia. Bane looked silly in all the previews but turned out to be pretty badass.

The one legitimate complaint i do have is that i didn't understand about 25% of Bane's dialog. But i understood enough to follow it.

I didn't like the casting of Catwoman originally, but i felt Anne Hathaway did a pretty decent job and i have no complaints. My girlfriend complained of her being too bleak (as she expects Catwoman to be more like the old batman movie or the cartoon), but considering Nolan was going in slightly different directions I didn't mind her.

That ending has me so happy yet disappointed. Happy because of Robin, but disappointed because Nolan said he's done and i heard rumors that when he's done the studio would just reboot the series again (ala Spider-Man). I really wish they would just continue where he left off.

9/10 film for me.

My thoughts exactly. I need to watch it a few more times though before I make a final judgment.

TDKR

6.8/10

Begins is better, and DK is much better. They didn't do a good job editing. The audio sucked. The story didn't flow well, but the ending was pretty cool. Bane's whole face was covered so he had no character.

There was a lot of stuff I thought should have been taken out. Some corny Batman lines. The acting was great, but I think Nolan got lazy and didn't finish the trilogy strong.

Not in IMAX.

I give it a 9/10. To me, BB is a 9 and TDK is a 10 just for reference. I keep going back and forth between which I liked more between Begins and Rises.

I always love it when I expect a movie to suck and it turns out a lot better than expected.

The Amazing Spiderman 9/10.


Andrew Garfield seemed more like your typical teenager when compared to Tobey Maguire. I really hated the idea of having a reboot so soon. But as I was watching the movie, I was pleasantly surprised as to how much I was enjoying it. Emma Stone is a babe and I will be honest I never read the comics so I was really confused as to who the hell her character was.

Hopefully in the next movie he will be out of high school and in college.
