    I think you are a little too dismissive of the first Iron Man movie. Playboy billionaire gets hit with a huge dose of reality and decides to turn his life and company around. He is betrayed by his best friend and mentor and has to step up and become a hero. It's a good hero's journey tale and I think it's far better than Nolan's third Batman movie.

Yes. I didn't see why everyone thought it was good much less great. I thought each of the Batman movies were better.

    The Dark Knight rises is not a very good movie. It is too long, the pacing is off, Alfred disappears half way through the film because apparently Nolan has no idea what to do with him. And Nolan plays up Bruce's injuries in the beginning by as the film progresses he become less infirm, even getting his back un-broken(!). Remember how much we loved Nolan's Batman movies because they were more grounded in reality than other super hero movies?

I liked The Dark Knight Rises. It had it's problems sure but there were parts I loved like the pit scene or Gotham living under siege for months or the callback to Ra's Al Ghul to tie the whole trilogy together. No Marvel movie has moved me as much as that scene of Bruce crawling out of the pit.

Marvel movies are action movies. They're not deep or cerebral on any level. There is nothing compelling about them. It's big explosions and the ones with Robert Downey Jr have snappy dialogue...and that's about it.

And I say that as someone who always buys Marvel comics and can count on one hand the DC comics I've bought. DC's movies and cartoon series are usually much better than their Marvel counterparts (granted the Green Lantern movie sucked).

Marvel's bread and butter were their relatable characters whereas DC's main heroes were more iconic. That larger than life awe inspiring icon status seems to work for DC when it comes to movies. Marvel movies just seem less inspired.

    The Dark Knight Rises is just an over bloated mess with a poorly edited script and it wouldn't break my heart if I never saw it again.
