Um, The Dark Knight Rises was the best of the three Nolan Batman films.

Superman was always the most boring superhero to me. Mr. Perfect with not much complexity to his character. But I will go see since Nolan is involved.

Shakespeare took the icons of his day, kings, and moved their mundane stories to a whole different level. The people were entertained, because he gave them what they wanted (sword fights) and yet poetry and the human story at its most profound were put on the stage. In case nobody has noticed, all we're getting anymore are "gratuitous super hero movies." Where are the great stories of our time?

Default Meh

I didn't dislike the film, but I didn't find it overly engaging either. There is a lot of action, but without much tonal variance. So, by the time I got to the final action sequence it had all devolved into one extended slog for me. The constant flashbacks seem to pop up any moment the film is gaining some sort of momentum and tap the brakes. In many ways, it feels like Snyder was being reactionary to some of the criticisms of Superman Returns. (Complaints that Brandon Routh just lifted heavy things for the entire move, so Henry Cavill engages in several extended fisticuffs. Returns was too much of an homage to the Richard Donner films, Man of Steel does everything in its power to visually differentiate itself from the Donner films ect)

The problem is, despite all the bombast and frenetic set pieces, the movie just isn't that fun. Its a serious, humorless affair that turns into a bit of a chore by the end of its 2 hour 23 minute run time. I can see how visually it appears as if this incarnation could exist in the same dour universe as Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy, which was probably the point. But, as much as I loved Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy, not every character benefits from that same treatment.

In the end, its way better than The Green Lantern Abomination from a couple of years ago, but still not as entertaining or fun as the recent Marvel movies. And as a DC fanboy, it kills me to see Marvel continue to own them at the Theatre.

I have always found Superman to be the least appealing of any comic book character. The previews looked OK, but not a huge fan. Batman is the best comic book character.

I prefer the DC to Marvel. You could go back and forth on which heroes are better. The deal breaker for me is the villains. DC always had the better villains.

Big fan of Superman the character. Problem is his story lines have traditionally sucked. People know Doomsday killed him, is there a lot of people that know how he came back? Of course not, because the story was terrible.


Regardless this is a must see for me. Previews don't look bad. I'm almost expecting to be disappointed though.

For me, it depends on which era you're talking about. Both companies have had their ups and downs and many of the writers and artists have switched back and forth over the years.

At the moment, DCs "New 52" seems to be struggling while the Marvel makeover is getting better reviews.

I agree with you on the others, but to me Batman Begins was a yawner. I've watched it a few times now, and I've just never been able to get into it. To me, it's easily the weakest of the Nolan trilogy.
