I don't know. I think TDK is a fairly good film but, it's extremely overrated IMO.
TDKR, however, looks pretty horrendous.
Well, I wouldn't say that's the film's fault. That would go to people who have made the film out to be more than it is, like people over at IMDB. To me, a film should not be looked down upon just because of it's fans, no matter how obnoxious or annoying they can be.
As for The Dark Knight Rises
, I've enjoyed what I've seen from trailers so far. Honestly, I look forward to it more then The Avengers
, because Christopher Nolan, IMO, is the best director in Hollywood right now. That man can do no wrong to me.
EDIT: Wataru, I never said that The Dark Knight
was Harvey Dent's film. I said it was Harvey Dent's story
. His story is the focus point of the film. Everything that happens in the film revolves around him. Batman sees Harvey as a sign of the new hero of Gotham. The Joker sees him as a way to show how any man can be brought down a peg. Both of them use Harvey to get what they ultimately want. Over the course of the film, we see Harvey become a beacon of hope for Gotham, only to see his decent into chaos and his final demise. That's more than what happens to either Batman or Joker over the course of the film.
In the end, it's Batman's film
, but Harvey Dent's story
