THE DARK KNIGHT

Derring-do atop a Hong Kong skyscraper, and visual proof that Christian Bale and Chris Nolan both have a head for heights. The Chinese authorities vetoed the actual base-jump that's shown onscreen, so digital trickery had to suffice for that element of the shot. But an unconcerned Bale still got to walk the ledge and set up his grand scheme to unlawfully extradite Chinese citizen Lau (Chin Han).

Good Trilogy. Loved Begins, liked TDK Rises, thought TDK was the most overrated film in history. They destroyed everything that was good in BB (realisms), and compensated for it with politics. Who cares what the mayor of Gotham does or thinks? Also, Heath Ledger, yeah I know, great guy! But still, I liked this beautiful scene in Rises between Caine and Bale (the one about Alfred leaving) a hundred times more than all the scenes of the Joker in TDK combined. Ah well... More

3 This article serves to remind us what a disappointment Rises was.
After all of Nolan's talk about how a third movie in a franchise was usually a bridge too far, he went ahead anyway. I wish he'd trusted his instincts and just left it at two. More

4 BATMAN BEYOND!!!!!!!!!
Warner Bros. PLEASE make a Batman Beyond movie. It's one of the only Batman incarnations that hasn't been done to death and not to mention IT'S ABSOLUTELY AWESOME. You can't reboot the franchise after what Nolan has done (well you can't reboot it for a very long time anyway). Batman Beyond is the only way to go the timing is perfect. PLEASE make it happen!

"What we learn here is that Gotham has monorail lines identified by colour, like Washington DC, rather than the more usual numbers / names of - say - New York." Boston's "T" subway system is also identified by colours (Orange Line / Green line / Red Line / Blue Line) - from a Dubliner living in Boston More
