Had to look him up. Never knew someone invented the concept of animal magnetism. Very interesting.

Absolutely. There were two things that bothered me about the film, however. One is that the Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Talia reveal
felt a bit too tacked on, and two is that I had to pee throughout the whole thing. But I reconciled this by running to the bathroom quickly during that section.

I'd like to watch TDK and TDKR back to back, until I do I won't know which I like better.

anyway, since we all agree this movie was mediocre and the Bane character was canned hollywood devil.gif what is the next movie coming out of this? I know Nolan and Bale said they are done, but given the ending, is there a Robin movie coming without Batman (that would be awful) or is there a Batman and Robin in the horizon? Will George Takei be the new Batman?

I don't know but I'm boycotting if there isn't a wall walk.

I can't see your video at work but those wall walks were so awesome. Batman and Robin walking up the side of a building without much trouble. They'd stop in the middle of the walk, shoot the shit, and then continue on.

Shouldn't that be in spoiler tags? Also, it would be a Batman movie still, because Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Robin will become Batman, not use his first name. So, still Batman, but not Bruce Wayne.

It's making me sad to think about this, so I'm just going to Batusi my way out.

Daggett gave Bane access to his drilling/construction companies in exchange for Bane intiating trades (put options IIRC) that would bankrupt Wayne Enterprises, therefore allowing Wayne to be gobbled up Daggett's corporation. When Talia finally received Wayne's permission to use the reactor for her "Save the World" project, she informed Bane of this and Daggett then became expendable.

That has all the window cameos: Jerry Lewis, Edward G Robinson, The Green Hornet and Kato, Dick Clark, Sammy David Jr., Werner Klemperer - it's pretty cool.

this part caused me confusion. So Wayne buys puts on the stock, assumingly he spent all his money on the puts. Puts expire worthless, Wayne is broke. How does Wayne then turn over Wayne Enterprises to Talia confused.gif

Robin Blake isn't Robin, he's taking up the cowl of Batman. His name beign Robin was just a nod tot he fanbois

She had the inside track on becoming CEO of Wayne Enterprises, and advised other board memebers that they shouldn't be gobbled up by Daggett since here Save The World initiative would make the company whole again.  Talia/Bane's intentions were never to help Daggett (although it gave more context to their relationship), it was to convince Wayne to give Talia access to the nuclear energy emitter/machine.

It's been three weeks; why would anything be in spoiler tags now?
