Would you have wanted a longer film, at the expense of IMAX?

Would you?

It's no secret a lot of TDKR was cut for the IMAX time limitation. Another factor is that IMAX is really only worth it in theaters, as on BluRay it just provides frequent formatting differences which could be jarring.

On the other hand, the film is plenty long as it is. Does more of it really need to be shown? And of course, IMAX in theaters was pretty spectacular.

Would you have liked a film up to 20 minutes longer, but with no IMAX?

Personally, I wouldn't. This movie was one of the best theater experiences I've had, and IMAX was one of the reasons. It was a perfect cinematic experience for me. I also don't really think more content needed to be added to film, not enough anyway to remove such an impressive work of visual art.

No. Nolan knew the limits of IMAX, so ...

I actually think this is a valid and vital criticism of the film- especially in the context of Lee Smith's comments on the movie. It was basically an admittance they made the shortest film instead of the best one. That's kind of a huge fucking problem in my opinion.

What else is there to discuss? Do you only want threads where we all just endlessly praise the movie or something? Stop posting spam if you aren't going to contribute at all.
