As lots of people have been doing, I just re-watched Begins in preparation. It was a while since I saw it but it really is a fantastic movie. The 140 minutes just fly by, and I can't think of a single thing I dislike (well, maybe Batman not crushing Joffrey while he had the chance). Might squeeze in The Dark Knight before Sunday.

That's massive. And to think there was a point approaching 03:30 a.m. that I was about to give up trying to book opening day IMAX tickets!

I would hate to be the guy who has to run that through a projector.

Those prints are mightily expensive and if it gets scratched your basically fucked.

I did Begins and TDK last week - what I find every time I watch Begins (which is a fantastic movie) is that I just can't wait for The Joker to turn up, so I have to watch it straight after

This week isn't going quickly enough for my liking.

I've heard, from several sources online (completely spoiler-free) that the final 30 minutes of TDKR is the finest segment of the three films. That's high praise indeed and I can't wait to see what happens.

It's only Wednesday

I know! Normally I hate people that post crap like "only three more sleeps" on Facebook before going on holiday but that's exactly how I feel. 2 more to go!

I watched Batman Begins last week (I swear it gets better every time) and Thursday night is The Dark Knight and then...

So, with the Begins/Dark Knight double bill on the big screen completed last night, I am now totally ready to see this trilogy end. Tonight. I'll say it again.... I am seeing it tonight. Why does that thought feel slightly surreal? Only with Phantom Menace and Jurassic Park do I think I've ever had the kinda buzz for a film I have now for Rises. I cannot fucking wait. I am trying to reduce expectations......

Got to say, after seeing both films back to back at the cinema (sold out showing, by the way, in Cineworld Sheffields second biggist screen behind IMAX - that really surprised me!) I definately prefer Begins to Dark Knight. Begins absolutely flys by, I think the pacing of it is great and although Dark Knight is superb, I definately felt it's length (oo-er missus!) last night. Although that may just be due to the fact I was in the cinema for about 5.5hrs all in. But still, two great, great movies and a perfect way to set up Rises tonight. I'll probably be around tomorrow to offer up some non-spoiler thoughts and an initial reaction.

Good to hear mate, I'm off to see it tonight as well and feeling pretty surreal right now, I'm busy trying to lower my hype a tad. Have not been this excited to see a film in a long while.

Watched begins the other night and may watch TDK tonight a couple of hours before I go, but I already watched it two weeks ago so meh. Gotta agree, Begins has to be my favourite so far, while The Dark Knight was still great and at the time seemingly the better film, in recent years Begins just goes by quicker, even though he doesn't put the suit on until halfway through, and this is a testament to Nolan's filmmaking. Will endeavour to post some spoiler free thoughts as well. Too scared to venture into the review thread yet, it's all gone to shit by now surely?

Pretty much. It's taken a turn for the 'Nolan's Batfilms are right wing propaganda in support of wealthy elitism, rendition and torture', so yea, you might want to avoid.

Yeah I posted something refuting the allegations of The Dark Knight basically being a love letter to the Bush administration and then couldn't be bothered with the thread after that!

Enjoy tonight Porntrooper - you lucky man.

Are you seeing Rises at Cineworld Sheffield as well? Going to see it on Friday late showing in IMAX!

Amped up to 11 for Rises right now!

I am yea, 8.30am showing Friday in IMAX. Not sure if tonight's preview is in IMAX or not.

The only IMAX showings free on Friday now in Sheffield are the 5am and 8.30am. All others are sold out. Standard performances not sold out as yet. I gotta say, I'm really surprised IMAX showings are the first to sell out. I didnt realise Joe Public really bought into standard, non-3D IMAX. I think it's going to do some insane business over the weekend. I dont think it's going to beat Avengers, but it's going to be close. I tend to use my office as a gauge for the attitude of Joe Public, and everyone seems up for this flick, everyone is planning on seeing it at some point this weekend.

Same here, good point - An office environment represents an equal amount of men/women of different ages and there's quite a few people hyped for this where I work.

Those of you seeing it tonight - I envy you. Those of you seeing it in IMAX - Bastards!!!!!

Likewise. Although I do have two trips booked for the IMAX this weekend so should be reasonably happy with that.

Think Id agree. Although I think I was shaking violently in anticipation waiting for the Two Towers to start ... and what a start! That opening paid off all the excitement and then some. Almost a shame I know exactly how TDKR will open... having seen it. Sure it will have still have plenty of wow to throw at my face though... come along Monday!

(Takes a seat, opens beer and waits for inevitable backlash, that always comes when overly popular films come out.)

My advice would be not to read too many reviews, not because of spoilers, but because they will (subconsciously) colour your enjoyment of the film.

In the next few days, spoilers and really petty stuff about the film will be all over the Net. So brace yourselves.

Also, Man of Steel trailer!

My brother is currently watching this in Sydney as part of the triple bill. He rang me just after TDK saying he was wrecked already. I can't help but think he's going to enjoy it less because he's so tired. Bad idea.

You're not alone, worry not.

I'm fortunate to work with a guy who's as geeky and enthusiastic as me, but I think the girls in the office are sick of rolling their eyes at our in-depth Batman discussion

I am counting down the days. I can't believe it's only Thursday tomorrow!!! Hurry up!!

I have to say that I have anticipated many films over the years. The anticipation for the Lord Of The Rings films was something special for me (and I don't think The Hobbit will recapture that I'm afraid), but I have never anticipated a single film like I have TDKR. It's a momentus film for me. It represents everything I love about a great story - Inspiring, emotional, dramatic, rousing. A powerful story, not of a man who dresses as a bat, but a story about a man who cares so much for what he believes in and is willing to sacrifice his life in order to see it through. This may sound like a bunch of hokum to some people, but these are truly the reasons it connects with people. Batman has existed for 70 years, but never has the character been more thrilling than in Christopher Nolan's superlative films.

Batman is the greatest superhero of them all. Because he's just a man with astonishing belief and strength of will. The fact that he dresses like a Bat is just the awesome icing on the awesome fucking cake. Iconic.
