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.

Man I was really hoping I would like the Dark Knight Rises despite how impossibly hyped up it was but I was really reaching for things to like about that movie. Michael Caine was great and I have to give Anne Hathaway credit but I was constantly questioning the logic of the movie. I don’t want to spoil anything but there were major plot points of that film that were built on holes. And I really thought the darkness that Nolan’s benched his career on was too understated throughout the movie, all of his big budget films have made up for their inconsistencies by (usually) really nailing down a certain tone, but I never felt it with this one. I really wasn’t trying to hate it but there wasn’t anything there for me to love.

Every time I see the Dark Knight Rises trailer I don’t even feel anything.

I’m gonna see it and all but I’m just saying, one of these days Christopher Nolan is going to make another average movie.

Am I the only person who thinks this movie’s going to be a huge disappointment??

Director Christopher Nolan’s own personal hand drawn graph detailing the path taken by the team through out Inception.

I don’t get why on stumble upon I always used to come up with a million different graphs charting out what happened in Inception. I thought one of the key things Inception did really well was that even though on paper it sounds like a complicated narrative it was really easy to keep track of what’s going on. Was it really that hard for some people to follow?? They laid it out right there, level 1, level 2, level 3…
