The Dark Knight Rises with triumph and tragedy…

Hey there Bat-fans! The day has come at last, the day of Gotham’s reckoning. That’s according to Bane anyway. Our Bat-a-thon is officially over and the reviews for Christopher Nolan’s now complete Dark Knight trilogy (as well as the Burton-verse classics) are up and you can read them all here before you go see Batman battle it out with Bane in the streets of Gotham in The Dark Knight Rises!!

And while the film was met with success, the world reminds us why we need a real hero like Batman around. As some already know, a terrible tragedy struck a theatre in Colorado last night during a midnight showing of The Dark Knight Rises (full details here). Whether or not you have any interest in the movie or in Batman at all, at least spare a thought or prayer or whatever it is that you do for the people of Aurora, Colorado.


…not the hero we deserve but the one we need.

  1. My heart goes out to the families of the victims of the Colorado shootings, such a terrible thing to mar the release of such a highly anticipated film.

    Have you posted your reviews yet? I can’t seem to find them. In any case I’d love to hear your feedback on mine, It will take me a long time before I’m tired of discussing this movie with anyone lol

    • Truly a horrific ordeal. Sounds a bit cheesy but, it’s times like these that I wish super heroes were real. That and I just think it’d be awesome to walk outside one day and randomly see someone like Daredevil somersaulting across the parking lot.

      Our reviews for TDKR are being written now. So they will be up shortly. And yea, I’d totally like to discuss the Batman at some length. I’m marginally obsessed to the point of worship, but instead I’ve elected to believe in the Force.
