Episode 05: A very spoilery TDKR review

Download podcast here.

As promised, here comes the second half of our coverage of the release of The Dark Knight Rises! We interview the Justice League while waiting in line (among others). We give our thoughts on the film and why we think it succeeded (or not). Lots and lots of spoilers. So: SPOILER ALERT. Darin thinks it's his new favorite movie. Braeden has been vacillating all week as to whether he thinks it's better than the Avengers, and ultimately, he's saying no - but that doesn't mean he didn't love the film. Take a listen, and let us know what you think in the comments, on Facebook, Twitter, or by e-mail!

Pre-show interviews: 00:00 - 00:17
Post-show review: 00:17 - 00:43

Again (we can't stress this enough) this review is spoilerific. So don't listen until you've enjoyed the film. Or hated it. But let us know what you think! Join the conversation on our Facebook or Twitter pages, and or contact us at with any insights, comments, or questions you might have.

  1. Ohhhh man! This review was very entertaining. I completely agree with everything you both said about everything. I wish you guys had talked more about the "rise" symbolism seen throughout the whole movie, though I understand that a podcast episode can only be so long. I thought Christopher Nolan did a brilliant job of incorporating this idealism that transcends more than just the Batman story. So many movies these days lack that inspirational touch where viewers feel empowered to act for the good. Watching the epic The Dark Knight Rises definitely instilled in me a greater determination to overcome adversity, to "rise" above, and to stand for what I believe is right. In so many ways, society can take example from these superhero characters because of the principles that they exemplify and stand for.
