There are some things that felt really unnecessary for me, like the inclusion of Talia Al Ghul as "the real villain".
I think its necessity is in how it brings the story arc full circle. Batman Begins began and ended with Ra's al Ghul, good guy mentor turned bad. Talia was good girl love interest turned bad. While Bruce was spoiled brat turned hero. The contrast with Bruce is the importance in Ra's/Talia.

I still love the movie. And watching it in glorious 4K UHD makes it even better.

This movie absolutely need a Director's Cut, with another version of Miranda death and the cut scenes of Bane in the prison.

The cut scenes of Bane in the prison would be like two shots long, if the novelization is any indication. It's not like a whole scene or anything. Plus, it would have distracted from the focus on Talia at that moment.

And I just made this post in another thread, but if you pretend instead like Talia passed out, it works. What they should have edited in though was after she finishes talking, Selina and Gordon get distrated by Bats tying the bomb to the plane, and Gordon looks back to see that she's out (either passed out or dead, take your pick).

Bloodying her up like the novelization indicated would have been a good idea as well. To be honest, I had no idea that she was dying in that moment the first time I saw her. Could be because Gordon came out okay, or she just didn't look hurt... but again, say that she passed out then and there, and we're good.

As for edits, I would love to see a cut that doesn't show images of Alfred in the cafe in Italy when he's talking about it to Bruce.

This movie is a masterpiece. Even with guys falling down for no reason and all.

Suddenly this just came to me, and I decided to make something of it:



What do you think? lol

If so, it's not the first time Zimmer has been inspired by something (obviously we know the Inception one, but I also believe The Ring main theme is inspired by Have You Seen the Ghost of John?).

Apparently Nolan asked Jack White to sing the national Anthem in the stadium scene.

Earlier, White stopped to explain his “BURGH” Batman logo shirt, worn “just for you, Pittsburgh.”

“I only have a few regrets in my life,” he began, joking that “a few of those are children.” (At least we hope he was joking.)

“One of those regrets,” he continued, “is that Christopher Nolan asked me to play the National Anthem in ‘The Dark Knight,’ ” which was filmed partly in the stadium White was looking at from the stage.

He struggled with the decision for a week, White said, before concluding, “I can’t do it, because Jimi Hendrix owns that, and I respect him too much.”
