On Dark Knight Rises: my viewing of this film was hampered by sitting too close to the IMAX screen (good seats were already reserved) and thus I was blind half the time during action scenes and craning my neck back and forth during conversations. Overall I think it's decent but nowhere the experience I had watching the first two movies. Trilogy definitely peaked with the best story, atmosphere, plot twists and villain in The Dark Knight.

Still going to attend a second viewing with proper seating to see if my view improves.

Well, you had unreasonable expectations IMHO if you came in expecting something surpassing The Dark Knight

Honestly, the only thing I really wish they had done with Dark Knight Rises was make some reference to the Joker- •••Spoiler:  every other major villain that has been in the series got some sort of cameo or reference in it. They didn't have to show him at all- just have Batman say something along the lines of "all the prisoners have been freed- what happened to the Joker?" and have Gordon answer with something like "He escaped years ago. Rumor has it his psychiatrist fell in love with him and they ran away together". Not exactly like that, but you get the point.

I don't plan on seeing this Bourne. They shouldn't have made another one.

The only movie left to look foward to for me this year is Skyfall.

Also Gangster Squad is apparently getting censored by Warner due to the shootings in Colorodo.

Yeah, they're most likely removing and replacing the scene where a group of gangsters shoot up a movie theater. It's been delayed until 2013 .

Took me a while, but I found the original trailer for Gangster Squad (I'm sure most of us have seen it, but for those that haven't).

Here it is...

(I'd watch it soon, it'll get pulled soon)

Cloud Atlas and Life of Pi has me interested... Might check out the Cloud Atlas book.
007 Skyfall IMAX trailer was amazing.

So many movies left to look forward to: The Hobbit Part 1, Breaking Dawn Part 2, 007, Finding Nemo 3D, Rise of the Guardians...

Box office numbers for The Dark Knight Rises are dropping fast :/ I don't think it will recover well like The Dark Knight. Predicting a $65-$75 million weekend.

I guess this will be old news for the lot of you, but I saw John Carter on a DVD just now.

Pretty brilliant movie.

Yeah, I like this. That would've been pretty cool in the movie.

I read in the news the other day that the Joker is mentioned in the Novelization of the film. They mention something about all the prisoners being moved to Blackgate prison, except the Joker, who stayed in Arkham by himself, or something like that.
