    The Dark Knight Rises

    ★★★½

    Bale as a broken Batman always tugs at my heart. His relationship with Caine as Alfred is just so real. I love them together, especially in this film.

    Tom Hardy is menacing and unique as Bane. I think his choices stand the test of time despite how controversial they may have been seen during the film's release. A convincing physical threat to The Batman.

    The score really carries the last third or so starting once Bruce learns his fellow prisoners…

    The soaring score draws you in right from the beginning and immediately it's straight to the bats. Attention to detail and gorgeous production design awaits at every turn.

    Simply a blast. Been waiting for Black Widow / Scarlett to get her due for too long.

    Quick Thoughts:
    • I loved the opening credits - including the cover song. Great.
    • I actually enjoyed the slow build of the first act.
    • Florence Pugh is amazing - looking forward to her future in the MCU.
    • Rachel Weisz!
    • Scarlett should have had 3 solo movies as Black Widow.
