We discuss what it means to not enjoy The Dark Knight Rises. What do you think, do you need an airtight reason to dislike a movie?

On the one hand, yeah it’s unfair to attack a fictional movie you’re set on disliking by pointing out its factual shortcomings. On the other hand there is such a thing as creating a consistent universe, and when you bring in elements that contradict everything you thought you knew about the world you were watching it’s not the viewers fault for not suspending disbelief; that’s the writer’s job.
That said the holes in Dark Knight Rises weren’t what left me completely unsatisfied, it was just how bored I felt during the whole ordeal. My lack of interest in the characters, story, tone, and action are why I walked out feeling like I’d been robbed of 3 hours, and when you’re trapped in a theater for that long with a movie that consistently fails to give anything back to you, finding the holes is the only thing left to keep you entertained.
