The Line Cutter Rises

When you take a man and turn him into an idea, he becomes a legend.  When you take a movie franchise and turn it into a legend, it ends up generating one of the most epic podcasts of all time.  And after much anticipation on everyone’s parts (including our own!), we’re pleased to present our dedicated podcast for The Dark Knight Rises.

Recorded on the same day we both saw Christopher Nolan’s cap on the Batman trilogy, we sit down with fresh memories of the movie and talk about what we loved, how so many of the ideas and concepts in the movie were beautiful constructed over the course of the three movies, and how The Dark Knight Rises managed to provide some serious pay-off.

We look back at our original skepticism on Anne Hathaway’s casting as Selina Kyle and laugh at how foolish we were.  Then we look back at Joseph Gordon Levitt’s casting and find ourselves a little puzzled.  Jay admits to having some problems with the ending, we look at some of the parts that don’t add up…

But through it all, we cap off a legacy with a detailed look at why The Dark Knight Rises is such a brilliant, spectacular piece of cinema.  And while it’s certainly not the perfection piece that The Dark Knight was, we can certainly agree that TDKR is what it needs to be… one of the best endings in any trilogy in a long, long time.
