Don't get me wrong: there are parts of the film that are expertly crafted (the scene with the Joker and Dent really stood out to me this time around). But there were some parts that really felt forced.
not gonna lie, i'm a huge nolan/batman fanboy but i can absolutely agree with this. i didn't think about it too critically when it came out because i was so floored by the entire thing, ledger especially. but watching it now four years later, there's just so much that happened exactly how it had to that it just made it feel lazy and way too convenient.
and the boat scenes were TURRRRRIBLE. good job security doing a sweep of the boats for bombs or other incendiary devices!
and along those lines, the guy in the courtroom who pulls the gun on dent... the list goes on, but you get the point. still enjoy the fuck out the movie though but thinking objectively its easy to say now that BB > TDK as a complete film.
in exactly 33 hours i will be seeing the opening sequence of the dark knight rises...
