OK, so I'm wondering what y'all thought of this movie. I went to see it opening weekend with some buddies, but I'll reserve my comments for the moment. What'd you think?

i really liked it .... i like how they focused on the story and not just wowing people with the special effects ... although that part was cool when it happened ... sometimes these action movies focus too much on the effects and not the story .... i think this did a good job in balancing the two ..

Really good. It actually made me appreciate The Dark Knight even more, which I always thought was overrated and I was never happy with the ending. For Batman to take the blame for murder just to protect the reputation of a politician never sat well with me; so it was good to see that completely blow up in their faces in the third film.

I also liked Bane, I thought he was a great villain. Just the way they did his voice was cool, because it always overpowered every other sound. It gave him a very imposing presence even when his character was off camera. I wish his powers had been explained more, however. He seemed to have the ability to hurt people just by touching them, but we never know why that happens.

It was interesting how Bane was essentially leading an Occupy movement.
