    MisterMagurlypse - 9/28/2012, 11:14 AM
    I've got the first two on DVD, so I'm just going to get the Blu Ray trilogy gift set. I'll put it on my Xmas list and make the wife buy it. :)
    Jollem - 9/28/2012, 11:29 AM
    sonofabitchin' blu-ray. you could probably put all those features on dvd
    Squish - 9/28/2012, 11:30 AM
    Worthless Bluray. You could buy the dark knight for $10 a few months after it came out. Just goes to show that these batman movies are not great on blu ray. Iron man 1 still costs over $20
    Unas - 9/28/2012, 11:31 AM
    Can't wait!
    Jollem - 9/28/2012, 11:37 AM
    i enjoyed this movie pretty much the same as the avengers
    jimpinto24 - 9/28/2012, 11:42 AM
    Sweet! TDKR was epic! Can't wait to get it on Blu-Ray.
    bhorwith22 - 9/28/2012, 11:43 AM
    They are going with that boxart?

    Epic Fail

    The only thing I wish was on TDKR Blue-Ray special features was audio commentary by Chris Nolan.
    Saintsinnister - 9/28/2012, 11:46 AM
    Awww looking back on my TDKR experience I cant help remebering how dissapointed I was that Nolan put about %65 effort into it. The first 2 films were so good. I might just rent it from red box for $1.20...just sad it had to end that way. I thought they might at least make a directors cut that might fill in some plot holes.
    StSharp - 9/28/2012, 11:53 AM
    Getting this for Christmas, YEAH!
    Saintsinnister - 9/28/2012, 11:57 AM
    SteveRogersSon..might have to try that.. God knows the weed i smoked the first time didnt help.

    You can tell who the people that don't like popular movies are in the same way you can tell if someone is vegan: They'll mention it at every available opportunity.
    Maximus101 - 9/28/2012, 11:58 AM
    Movie of the year for me! I'll be buying on day one!!!
    SUPERSHADOWBAT - 9/28/2012, 12:00 PM
    I'll buy the blu ray box set. I enjoyed TDKR
    GodzillaKart - 9/28/2012, 12:10 PM
    I enjoyed TDKR, but can't imagine sitting through it again.
    DoomXfactor - 9/28/2012, 12:11 PM
    @SteveRogersSon- lmao
    Stumblin - 9/28/2012, 12:11 PM
    This film was good, but it missed a great opportunity. Wasn't much of a Batman movie for me and that ending...ugh. The first two still one of the best along with Burton's take.
    THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 9/28/2012, 12:18 PM
    Not getting this. Getting the TRILOGY!
    Deschain12 - 9/28/2012, 12:21 PM
    Sweet. Great movie. Definitely picking this up.
    Dedpool - 9/28/2012, 12:22 PM
    I'm just gonna get the Trilogy!
    danetooeasy - 9/28/2012, 12:26 PM
    No deleted scenes like the proto-Bane? Aw :(
    Jollem - 9/28/2012, 12:29 PM
    Brady1138 - 9/28/2012, 12:36 PM
    I loved the film, but I'm gonna wait for the inevitable trilogy pack. BTW, WORST BOX ART CHOICE...EVER!!!!!
    FusionAcara - 9/28/2012, 12:40 PM
    SteveRodgersson: Because hes wearing him out. He starts dodging dirsctky after that.
    Tymminator - 9/28/2012, 12:40 PM
    I wonder what the Ultimate trilogy pack will look like?
    Jollem - 9/28/2012, 12:41 PM
    @SteveRogersSon - if you were batman right there, and you tried going up against that beast who is in classic tyson mode, you let me know how well that worked out for you when/if you regain consciousness :)
    thewonderer - 9/28/2012, 12:54 PM
    I would like to hear an opinion on TDKR from someone who didn't like the avengers
    Saintsinnister - 9/28/2012, 1:02 PM
    As fans we are allowed to take our favorite character's movie personally guy. You wait years to see how Nolan will end the best trilogy ever and you get a big let down. Dont prais mediocracy my fellow nerds. I mean people died trying to watch this movie! Like i said, its worth renting and watching again but I wont buy this movie. Special edition or not.
    thewonderer - 9/28/2012, 1:20 PM
    @Captaincool

    Oh its still here, people just sneakily throw in an insult to the other film.

    I just seem to notice the people who really put TDKR down being the ones who really talk the Avengers up
    Jollem - 9/28/2012, 1:28 PM
    @thewonderer - it's not all that uncommon. why, there are even some people who talk down tasm quite frequently :)
    marvel72 - 9/28/2012, 1:41 PM
    i'll probably pick this up in a couple of months when its abit cheaper.

    @ thewonderer

    "I just seem to notice the people who really put TDKR down being the ones who really talk the Avengers up"

    is that because you're just looking for the people that talk up the avengers & put down the dark knight rises.

    it happens to be both sides.
    avengers72 - 9/28/2012, 1:53 PM
    i`m buying the dvd trilogy
    pud333 - 9/28/2012, 2:35 PM
    Pass. I'll wait for the badass Trilogy set. You know it's coming.
    KNIGHT3000 - 9/28/2012, 2:36 PM

    Looking forward to it
    CrimsonReign - 9/28/2012, 2:36 PM
    Can't wait. Loved TDKR and loved Avengers!
    Devastator335 - 9/28/2012, 2:49 PM
    Awesome, can't wait to get it. ;)
    thewonderer - 9/28/2012, 3:11 PM
