    At least they had each other. Princess Peach being in another castle is the modern equivalent of getting a friend to screen calls from that boy who likes her but she doesnt like him.

    Mario never got the hint.

    Yes... this is what was bothering me, but I couldn't quite put my finger on it. It didn't feel like Gotham City. At all. Gotham was its own character in the previous movies, but it seemed... "not Gotham" in this one.

    In the 8 years... was the rail system completely done away with? Surprised there was no mention of Arkham, on its own "island".

    I suppose they were trying to show how cleaned up Gotham was due to the Dent Bill, or whatever they called it... but it just didn't seem right to me.


    On another note... Nolan said he was through with the Batman Movies.


    Never said anything about no Nightwing movies...

    He's done. I seriously doubt he will do a Nightwing or any Batman-related movie.

    No, I know this... I'm saying that regardless of where they filmed or what cities they filmed in... it didn't "feel" like Gotham City to me.

    The other films just gave the city a character, even a darker style... difficult to explain, unfortunately.

    I just never felt like I was experiencing Gotham.


    Also... as I said, maybe that's what they were going for due to the criminal climate change after 8 years.

    I felt the same way.there was even a scene where you can clearly see one world trade center being built. You can't tell me they couldn't edit that out. It felt like new York not Gotham.
