Well, I'm not trying to start a flame war, but I didn't like DKSB.  Started out good, but I think it just went to crap at the end. 

No flames.  you like what you like.  specifically what did you not like about it?

There was Dark Knight graphic novel in the 1980's that was good.

The dark knight returns.  Of which, dksb is the sequel.  It sort of changed everything.  Reset batman to his dark and gritty roots.

But the 2 Christopher Nolan Batman movies, Batman Begins and Dark Knight, I hated. 


I cannot imagine hating those movies.  As batman goes, they are everything I could have wanted in them, except for a hot heroine.  Kate whatsherface is meh, and while I think Maggie Gyllenhall is a very good actress and generally likeable, she has the sex appeal Ruth Gordon.  Maybe less.

What's true is already so. Owning up to it does not make it worse.

Just saw Avengers on the big screen, always wait till the crowds back off.


Mankind is not likely to salvage civilization unless he can evolve a system of good and evil which is independent of heaven and hell.
