The Dark Knight Rises … or Falls?

January 31, 2012 at 12:52 am 2 comments

So if you don’t think that “The Dark Knight Rises” is the most anticipated movie of the year, you should probably go take some medication or go review the first two movies of the trilogy. Yes I said two, because I believe that the first of this series is one of the most underrated movies of my generation.

This new Batman saga is more serious, dramatic and realistic than the ones that involved Keaton, Kilmer, and Clooney, and I honestly dig it. Michael Cain’s Albert is more personable and heartwarming like a butler who basically raised a child would be, rather than simply comic relief like the past one. And say what you want about Christian Bale, but he’s another underrated aspect about this saga. He’s one of the best actors in Hollywood in the sense of those who do not get the credit they deserve. Yes many would say he’s a terrible batman because of the voice alteration. Think about it … it’s like Superman and Clark Kent. All the guy does is take off his glasses and flicks a strand of his hair and nobody recognizes him? Back to Batman … Bruce Wayne is one of the wealthiest people in the world and you really think people won’t recognize his voice? So I applaud Bale and whoever else, probably the writer and director for telling him to alter the voice. It’s a voice get over it, listen to the other actors Michael Keaton’s voice wasn’t always the same.

Finally, to the point of my post … the newest and final installment. Who isn’t excited??? It’ll be tough to follow up the The Dark Knight where Heath Ledger, God rest his soul, gave his life to that role … heartbreaking to say the very least. But these first two movies have had it all character development, drama, action, and thrilling suspense. With the arrival of Bane, another underrated actor Tom Hardy, and unfortunately Catwoman, who knows what this next blockbuster will hold. But I can say one thing, usual when you include the Pittsburgh Steelers (yes they are uncredited extras as the Gotham Rogues) things get exciting in more than one way! This movie should and I expect it to, continue the essence of luster that the first two movies has produced. I know I will be there for the midnight premier and as should you.

Those are my two cents … cash it in if you wish!

    Nice. I like the combining of comic books and the Steelers. I will agree that DK Rises is a hotly anticipated movie, and I hope that it can break the 3rd movie syndrome. It seems that the 3rd movie in any superhero francise signals the end or the beginning of the end. Although, the original Batman franchise started its decay with the 2nd movie, but that’s another story. After Dark Knight, I have lots of faith in Christopher Nolan. Too bad they killed Two-Face at the end – he’d be cool to have in DK Rises.

      I really think that this movie being good depends on how convincing both a Bane comes off, and b if Catwoman can come off well.
