2012: Bonus Review: Week 28.5: The Dark Knight Rises/Giveaway!
Main Players: Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, Joseph Gordn-Levitt, Michael Caine
General Gist: The last of a trilogy...Batman...need I say more?
Deb's Take: So….My sweet dear sister was able to get free screening
passes to this movie, playing on the IMAX,and so graciously gave them to me and my husband to use since our kids
were out of town and she knew my husband was sort of stoked to see the
movie.I thanked her so profusely as I
knew it would be a fun date.Plus, I
think deep down neither of us (my sister and I) were really too excited about
seeing this movie and so we didn’t feel like we would be missing out if we didn’t
go as our weekly movie..Let me tell you….We were sooooo wrong.
As you know, I am not real gung ho about super hero movies.I usually leave those to my son and
husband.I have gone to more in the last
year than ever in my life though, and I think I am getting a better taste for
what is good and what isn’t.This one
totally rocked the house.It probably
helped that it was in the IMAX theatre, but all around it just was supercool.I have to say, I was tired when we left to go to this movie, some small
little part of my brain was secretly hoping that the screening line would be
too long and we wouldn’t get in so I could go back home and call it a
night.Well, the line was super short…the
theatre was almost empty actually..and I am so glad we went.
Every actor in this movie was perfect for their part.Both my husband and I agreed we were a little
concerned that Anne Hathaway wasn’t going to be able to pull off “Catwoman”well, she did, and I no longer see her as the
“Princess Diaries actress”.This could
be a really long post if I stated all the good in this movie, action, cool
cars, good adventure, action, action, action….but I won’t.The only downfall…Tom Hardy’s character, “Bane”,
was hard to understand sometimes.I
chalked it up as my poor hearing, but my husband said the same thing, and I
heard some 20 somethings say they couldn’t understand him either, (he did have a weird mask on mind you).
I think you should go if you like adventure, and if you like
Batman especially.I liked it so much I
am willing to give someone two passes to go see it!I want to share!So, tomorrow, Friday, I will pick a winner
but you must post either here or on our Two Sisters facebook page the answer to this following question…I
will pick a winner randomly from all who post…Who are three actors who have
played “Batman” in the past?
