All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

The Dark Knight Rises (2012)

Starring: Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, Marion Cotillard
Director: Christopher Nolan

Eight years have passed since Batman exiled himself to save Gotham City. A masked terrorist named Bane enters and takes over the city favoring anarchy over the wealthy and powerful. It's time for Batman to resurface to save Gotham once again.

My Take:
The latest Dark Knight trilogy has always had some horror undertones running through it. This one is no exception. There is the chaos of a mob mentality inflicted on the innocent once a madman gets control leading to the fear of falling in line or dying.
Batman has always been my favorite superhero. Probably because there is nothing super about him. He's simply a wealthy man with a lot of expensive toys who has trained himself in fighting and those chose to take out the criminal element.
While not my favorite of the trilogy, this is a dark and brooding movie which sets up an interesting follow up... should the movie studio choose to ever make it.

Rating: So Good
