Love RT, but I've gotten flamed multiple times as a 'troll' (among many other names) just for criticizing Dark Knight on there, even whilst in the same post clarifying that I love the movie. Really makes it hard to enjoy a movie yourself when the fanboys give it such a bad name and aren't even willing to discuss it.

I think most fans were upset with the lack of inconsistency in there reviews i.e. Christy Lemire gave raving reviews to Magic Mike, Savages, Rock of Ages, and so on yet she trashed TDKRs. It's no excuse to issue death threats for someone's opinion of a film and I think fans need to calm down but please, movie reviewers need to come into the movie with an open mind. Critics have a tendency to over judge and not look at a film for pure entertainment value and nick pick at this and that. Rodger Ebert is the best reviewer out because he truly enjoys movies no matter what he sees.

Sounds like typical fanboy behavior. I bet they haven't seen the film yet. The sad thing is while some are 12 year olds, most are adults who act like 12 year olds.

Before I paste a witty comment on Critics in general,I want to say that My first impression of this new advertised Batman Movie is: Why is Tom Hardy, as "Bane", face covered up ? Tom Hardy is a very excellent and handsome actor. I would have found this dynamic very interesting and exciting,for a change; That The Bad Guy is more Handsome,Intelligent and Charismatic than The Hero. Now for my obligatory witticism on Critics.
Man In The Arena:
"It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat." - Teddy Roosevelt

I went to see the last Batman movie because the reviewers were falling over themselves to out-praise the movie than all other reviewers and I was SO disappointed. It was a bombastic, one-note movie that was over two hours of almost nothing but explosions throughout the whole thing. The ONLY character development was with the Harvey Dent/Two-Face character and there was NO background on The Joker. Yes, Heath was great, but again a one-note character with no reason/background as to who or what he was and how he became that person. The rest of the movie was pathetic. So I no longer read reviews until AFTER I see a movie. I'd rather form my own opinion. And the only reason I'm seeing this one is to see Joseph Gordon-Leavitt and Anne Hathaway.

With all do respect. There is no background to the Joker. He has had multiple origins in the comics and DC does not even know if they are real. He just is. The Joker is exactly how he is portrayed in The Dark Knight. Chaos, there is no reason why he does what he does. Which is what makes him such a interesting character.

Actually, it doesn't make him an interesting character. It makes him a one-note character.

Agree 100% with your opinion of The Dark Knight. No character development (stereotypical crime bosses and a bunch of forgettable bureaucrats -- "the mayor", "the judge", "the police commissioner"), a disjointed plot that introduces characters that disappear, show up an hour later, disappear again, and show up an hour after that (Eric Roberts anyone?, the Chinese accountant anyone?), an unegrossing story that drags on sometimes tediously for over two hours. Honestly, if Heath Ledger hadn't died, I don't think it would be as highly regarded. The Dark Knight is the most overrated movie of the last 10 years and is the film most in need of a re-assessment by critics.

I swear the anonymity of the internet just brings out the worse in people.

I guess the fans are pretty defensive of this one. I'm excited! Here’s a look at Catwoman’s costume: http://www.cinemabums.com/?p=387

Those fans are just sick little nitwits with very small minds as well as lives. They like to spend their time watching garbage movies with dizzying special effects, then go home and brag about it. Sick. Who are their parents?
