If you make yourself more than just a man, if you devote yourself to an ideal… you become something else entirely. A legend!
The conclusion to Christopher Nolan’s epic Batman trilogy has arrived and with it an urgent need to gather together the horroretc crew to discuss it. The arrival of Batman Begins introduced a dark and mature approach to the superhero film grounded in reality and hailed as a triumphant return of the caped crusader on film following the disasterous downward plummet of the 90′s series. It was followed by The Dark Knight, a crowning achievement and held by many as the peak of what the genre can aspire to, a complex and engaging crime thriller filled with excellent performances, which happened to feature characters dressed up in costumes.
And now, The Dark Knight Rises. The episode is comprised of two separate recordings discussing in detail our reactions to the film with distinct spoiler sections identified as follows:
1 – 38:23 through 56:40
2 – 1:39:06 through 2:02:48
So we changed up the pace a little this week with plenty of Batman talk, but each segment also features our take on The Amazing Spiderman and thoughts on the Man of Steel teaser. There’s a storm coming and we’re bringing it straight to your ears.
