I didn't get a lot out of Raimi's movies. 2 was the only film that felt smart enough to forgive the cartooniness, let alone make that cartooniness work for the characters.

One thing that DID look interesting and that I thought was quite well done was the teaser for 'Man of Steel', which didn't give a lot away and yet still made me interested in it.

This of course, coming from someone who doesn't hate on 'Superman Returns' anyway like a chunk of the rest of the internet seems to!

Hmm... 'No' and 'YES.' The new teaser did nothing for me. However I quite liked Superman Returns, his stalker tendencies notwithstanding.

I might feel differently after I see TDKR again. My sleep cycle chose not to adjust itself to the marathon (as always seems to happen whenever I've bought my tickets in advance... remind me not to do that for ST), so by the time the third movie started I was in a really passive mood. The kind where you arrogantly slap your knee and go "Alright, impress me. I'm not doing half the work for you like I did for your older siblings, sorry. Life is unfair that way."

That is quite a session.

I had watched the two earlier films last week to refresh my memory on them.

I'm too much a sight-and-sound person to miss a movie I haven't seen in seven years on a big screen. All those shots so deliberately framed, those faces flickering at 24 frames a second...

I had picked up the Blu-rays last week as the box set was being sold cheap in light of the release. That said my cinema wasn't doing a watch them all thing that I know of anyway.

Saw it last night, I enjoyed it, perhaps not quite with the satisfaction of the other films but still good entertainment.

I found it a tad overlong, and I agree that they tried to explore dozens of themes but then ended up skipping over some of the points they wanted to make and fit in too much for those points to make much emotional resonance.

Spoiler
Yep

DOES CONTAIN MAJOR FILM SPOILERS

It's definitely not that I didn't enjoy the film, but I can't help but think the entire thing is below par for someone as generally praised as Nolan has been for his career.

I hate these tags; they're a bloody nuisance
