  1. Pure and utter trash in every single possible measurable aspect. These films are so far below Nolan's on an artistic and storytelling scale it's mot evem funny. The best part about Nolan's magnificent trilogy, is not just the fact that it makes Burton's abortions seem like the generic, poorly written, style-over-substance messes they truly are, but have allowed the masses to take a look at Burton's entire directorial resume and see it for the overhyped tripe it's been since the Emo version of Edward James Olmos blackened cinema over 3 decades ago. Films like Pee Wee's Big Adventur
  2. The single greatest comic book film ever made. An instant 5 star modern classic that hearkens back to the rich storytelling days of the Godfather and Lawrence of Arabia. The performances are simply out of this world, with the late great Heath Ledger's Joker becoming THE bar to which all movie villains are measured, and Aaron Eckhart and Gary Oldman each contributing lifetime achievement level performances, with everyone else rounding off the cast nicely. Christian Bale (tied with Daniel Day-Lewis as our greatest modern actor) gives a subtle yet menacing performance reminiscent of Al
  3. Ugly, cheap and fake (stagey) as hell. Not one trace of cinematic talent can be found. If you had told me that Tyler Perry cut his teeth in the industry as a 2nd unit director with this film, I'd believe you.
  4. Seeing as how Nolan characters have delivered some of the most brilliant, epic, phenomenally quotable lines in the history of the spoken word, this statement has no legs to stand on.

  6. Unlike The Dark Knight, neither one of those will ever be compared to the Godfather or Empire Strikes Back with any sort of sincerity
  7. Nolan made every single CBM director in history, past and present, his personal bitch when he created this flawless masterpiece, and from the looks of Dulltron's flaccid reception, will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.
  8. Out of the two billion dollar grossers we're guaranteed to have this year, THIS was the one that gave us a sense of true dramatic heft.
  9. Choppy, poorly edited, overstuffed, undercooked, riddled with bad one-liners and half-baked attempts at drama, not to mention a staggering lack of continuity from previous films (Tony's retirement, Hydra infiltrating Shield) that make it reminiscent of a Brannon Braga project. As much of a filler film as Iron Man 2 * out of *****
  10. Better and more accurate than yours. Face it, when it comes to the best this genre has to offer, AoU has been measured... and found wanting.
  11. Seems like an F film to me. Overstuffed and undercooked. Basically, the first film without the "First time crossover" appeal to disguise its piecemeal plot and cliched storytelling. Just like DoJ will be next year.
  12. The 10 year anniversary is coming up in a month and a half. Time to bump up one of the most influential game changers of the 21st century.
  13. Empire names The Dark Knight the greatest comic book movie of all time! http://www.empireonline.com/features/greatest-superhero-movies When it comes to the undisputed pinnacle of the genre, all other CBM's have been measured and found wanting.
