Don't read a blog about this movie; go and see it instead.
Okay, fine. Read a blog about it.
So, I know I talk a lot of crap about Anne Hathaway, but in this movie I not only didn't mind her... I kind of liked her. Now, I still don't want her playing Fantine, but she can continue to be in movies as long as her whining days are at an end, and her kicking butt days resume.
I heard a lot of flack about Tom Hardy's Bane voice. It was an unusual pick, but who the heck cares? It's about time Bane gets more respect than the comedic role he had in the DREADFUL Batman and Robin... though, honestly, he was the best part of that movie. "Bomb... Bomb... Bomb...." Hilarious.
There are things I predicted, but there are things I didn't. And if there wasn't a little bit of predictability, it would be one of those movies that's all over the place... and we can't have that, can we.
I was pleased that Scarecrow made it in to all three movies. If you didn't recognize him you should hang your head in shame. You call yourself a Batman fan?
I was also pleased there was no mention of the Joker. It seemed respectful. Plus, it had been 8 years since his arrest; we can probably safely assume the lack of Joker was due to capital punishment, yet tastefully, we needn't speak of the Joker's death.
You gotta love a movie about hope AND revenge. You gotta!
