You have to click the little box that says "show" on it or else all you'll see is a blank box.

I'm sort of offended that people keep calling Bane a "sidekick." I believe people in that line of work prefer "henchman."

To elaborate on this, the action scenes didn't do enough to justify the slow burn to get there.

To it's credit, the pace of this movie is such that I didn't feel the length at all.
I wasn't referring specifically to you, several other people pointed this out as well. Sheesh.

This is a completely fair assessment. It's the "mediocre" and "6/10" views that I feel are a tad absurd

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Forum Discussion

Don't feel like putting TDK stuff in spoilers but like Dudd mentioned, one of the reasons it was so good is that while you knew Batman wouldn't really "lose" you couldn't ever be sure how much he would lose along the way to finally winning. TDKR basically had very little of that.

There was also the fact that the Joker's plan was actually very simple: Scare people until they panic and rid themselves of their rules. Bane's plan was laughably complex by comparison.

Speaking of bombs, The Hobbit is now going to be three movies. Discuss (but not here, cause there's already a thread for that).
