Yes! I hope Lucius comes back for the next one.

Did any of you guys catch that little nod to Catwoman when Lucius was showing Bruce the "new" suit. He says something about being attacked by dogs, then Lucius said something about watching out for cats, too. I giggled.

Forgot about that; that got a huge laugh, too.

Gordon: It's ... Bruce Wayne, right? That was a really brave thing you did there.
Bruce: What, trying to catch the light?

We got to our theater about 45 minutes early and there was a line. Unfortunately for my sister the kid, probably 14-15, sitting next to her smelled like BO and the chick he was with talked a lot during the movie. Thankfully I couldn't smell him but I could hear her inane chatter from time to time. She was shushed a few times which was good and I was able to block her out.

Whoa. I totally forgot about the Imax thing. I think next time I see it (because I WILL be seeing it again), I might have to go there.

I love Nolan's belief in using as little CGI as possible. Makes it so much better.

Oh man, that scene with the truck and the BatPod ... shit, maybe I do need to see this again sooner than I was planning.

The music used during the tense scenes, that growing buzzing noise ... it was perfect. At first I didn't know what the sound was, but then it just clicked and was perfect.

And I'm a sucker for the Big Moments like this, but the very ending, as he rides away, and the music crescendos. Chills, dude. CHILLS.

At first, there were a lot of people laughing very loudly during everything the Joker did - which, yeah, okay, but some of it made me cringe. Like it was shocking, not funny. But thankfully, that settled down a bit, and then the audience was totally in it all together.

God, it was SO GOOD.

I'm supposed to meet friends for dinner in Greek town on thursday. I'm thinking I should hit up IMAX first.

So many "wow" moments I need to see again.

Question:

Did Harvey die at the end, or was his death faked to save his image?

Yeah, that's one of the "unknowns" at this point.

Harvey 'Two-Face' is alive.

No doubt.

Thanks for sharing this

I knew it was a real building (there is waaaay too much cgi, these days)


It did not really look like the main hospital in a city.

It looked more like some old obsolete building (with a face lift) ready for demo


but, that being the case, it was still 10 times better than any cgi would have been

Okay, that's what I thought. I fucking loved the ending, btw.

Apparently GAF didn't get drunk enough with his friends before the show, and his buzz wore off before the last 30 minutes.

Only sane explanation.
