Question of the Week: Movie

What was the last movie you saw in the theater and what did you think of it?

The last flick I saw at the theater was The Dark Knight Rises. And I thought it was pretty awesome. I've already written about it on here, so I won't go into detail. But I felt that it wrapped up Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy rather nicely.

And overall, that was a pretty fantastic trilogy. Sure, it rehashed an origin story that we've all seen or heard in one form or another a dozen times over the last 73 years. But it also gave us a gritty Batman in a believable world. It gave us the most disturbing portrayal of the Joker, possibly the most iconic villain of all time. Hard to say if anyone will ever be able to do justice to the role ever again. The trilogy introduced Ra's al Ghul and the Scarecrow to the cinematic world. And we were reintroduced to Two-Face and Bane, both poorly realized in previous incarnations. And Catwoman... well, she's always a good idea.
