It's been a long while since I had any discussion about this movie. But, that respite is just one of the:
7 Stages of Batman Grief...
1. SHOCK & DENIAL- Just after I saw it, I was disappointed with the movie and tried to convince the people I knew who saw it that the movie just wasn’t good. Way too many plot holes and horrible inconsistencies.
2. PAIN & GUILT- “Am I the only one that didn’t like it?” “Should I feel ashamed that I think Batman is one of the best comic book characters ever and I didn’t love the Nolan trilogy?”
3. ANGER & BARGAINING- Christopher Nolan is the most overrated writer/director and all his other movies are garbage. Let one apple spoil the bushel, right?
4. "DEPRESSION", REFLECTION, LONELINESS- Okay, I won’t talk about it. Won’t think about it. Maybe, someday I’ll learn to respect this film as a masterpiece.
5. THE UPWARD TURN- Hey, there are other things to be happy about: football is coming back!
6. RECONSTRUCTION & WORKING THROUGH- School is back in session, my basement project is almost finished, Fantasy Football drafts are happening, social events. And, "Avengers" will be out on DVD soon.
7. ACCEPTANCE & HOPE- “The Dark Knight Rises” is still garbage, and a reboot is around the corner with the JLA franchise. But, Nolan is good. I did like Memento and Inception and The Dark Knight. But, Batman Begins and Dark Knight Rises are garbage.
If anyone asks, I'll post my list of gaping plot holes. But, considering only one person who posted on this thread didn't like the movie, I don't think anyone will be asking.
