I watched The Dark Knight Rises, unfortunately. I told myself that I wouldn't, that I wouldn't even download it and watch it for free, something I consider the ultimate insult. But a friend dragged me in. The reason I wouldn't watch it was that I hated TDK. I kind of enjoyed BB until Wayne put on the mask, but from then on the entire story has been unimpressive and just bad, bad storytelling.
One reason I was persuaded to watch it was the pre-release photograph of Selina Kyle in prison uniform, but that was a bust, too.
Christopher Nolan remains one of the most overrated directors alive today.
So, I suppose the many fanatical fans would want to strangle me slowly.
I can live with that.

Yes, there have actually been issued death threats against reviewers telling people what a bad film this is. That, and the event at the cinema theater in Colorado don't make me like it more, that's for sure.
It's just a travesty that TDK earned the production company and MPAA lots of funds they can use to screw us better and that this one will as well.
