Yeah, I'm not exactly feeling the hype of this movie. Most of my complaints have been stated here: The Dark Knight felt more like a police drama than a Batman movie. It's not that TDK was bad by any means, however I think it's highly overrated aside from Ledger's acting. TDKR looks amazing too and Hathaway seems like a good fit for her role, however I'm just not excited for it at all.
Mostly because the Avengers is coming out in a couple of days so most of my hype is focused on that. Even past that I'm excited for the Amazing Spider-Man, as there is much more at stake for it. It's a fresh slate, and everything seems to be leading toward it being a great movie. It's hard to compare the hype for the final piece of a trilogy of great movies that have their own take on existing characters to new takes on characters with things that the previous movies may not have contained.
That being said don't think I'm not excited for TDKR, just I didn't freak out when the second trailer came out.
Despite being critical about the ideas of TDK(not the filmaking), I thought this trailer was very good for not exploding every seconds and not spoiling the plot. This music is insanely good.
Amazing music in the trailer as well, gives a very somber feeling at the start and (excuse the pun) rises as the trailer goes on, finishing with that awesome chant.
"You'll never leave this world alone..."
I have learned from tv tropes that the the dark knight was banned in China. Well, they pretty much ban anything and are so freaking oversensitive(brokeback mountain, Avatar). Its just a film, have a little fun.
However, I do recall the scene where Dent said something about chinese gun being bad and you should buy american. That line was indeed out of place and had nothing to do with Dent's character. When I think about it, I did not even notice Lau died when I first saw the film, he did not even scream(it sorta dehumanizes him) which made his death almost comical.
That was kinda weird how it happened. We see him at the top of the pile of money and then Joker sets it fire, so obviously that means he dies, but there's no cutaway or reminder that he's still there. If you're not paying attention, then you'll probably miss it.However, I do recall the scene where Dent said something about chinese gun being bad and you should buy american.

Wow, sounds spectacular.
Now I'm real curious about the mask...
Let the hype train commence.
If I cry at a Batman movie, I better have been punched in the nose.
"The Dark Knight Rises is awesome!" ....meanwhile the sky is still blue.
I mean seriously, is anyone expecting this film to be a train wreck?
I made this terrible username almost 6 years ago!
Actually, yeah I think a lot of people are.
LOVE AND PEACE
Third movies suck!
According to some people.
Pixar has proven that third movies can be awesome.
Hell, I was bored and ready for DK to be over at least half an hour before it was finished, and have a litany of problems with it (that I didn't have with Begins) despite all the hype and general love behind it, so... yeah, I'm not terribly enthused.
Nolan's track record is too solid, so I'm not expecting "train wreck", but not expecting to love it either. I'm probably not even going to see it in theaters unless I get dragged along with others.
I mean, I've still got a Pixar movie coming. And I can see Avengers again and *know* I'll have a good time!

I wonder if they mean actual depth this time and not the collection of cute and interesting but ultimately meaningless psychological thought experiments that Dark Knight was.
I read over the bitterness over Dark Knight on this forum countless of times, but I fail to understand any of it.
It does not really stop it from being a good movie in my book. I really enjoyed it.
I liked Dark Knight. A lot in fact. But I think it's a bit over-rated especially when people praise it for being so "complex and thought-provoking" when it's really...not.
