comment How can Batman run and climb in the pits without his knee brace?
He could have had an operation, but an equal amount of evidence supports that Jean-Paul Valley took over as Batman for all scenes in the Batsuit!

comment So Bane was actually helping Batman all along?
...because he wrongly didn't anticipate that a broken back could be healed while in a third-world hole, malnourished and without real medical attention. The sadist in him wanted batman to witness Gotham explode.... Er. I'll be checking out now; if you're truly in agreement that an iconic villain could be an ally, there's little use to arguing.

"Bane doesn't commit any crime during the anarchy?" I feel like you are being willfully blind. Planning to destroy the city with what is effectively a bomb, and threatening to kill people who attempt to leave the city may not have happened "during the anarchy", but still count as a behavior unambiguously villainous.

comment So Bane was actually helping Batman all along?
I strongly disagree that a singular case of "altruism" (in the case of Talia) could possibly overshadow the countless, atrocious crimes he committed and otherwise facilitated. Consider the deathcount of the football players, implied (and unshown) victims of the entire city crumbling, psychological trauma to an entire city held hostage, unspoken victims from crimes (committed by opportunists knowing it's a lawless city), and the sadism of breaking Batman's back and imprisoning him with a TV showing his hometown people suffering....

comment Evidence for and against the ending of Dark Knight Rises
I absolutely agree with all points here, except one: the importance of the title "The Dark Knight Rises" in relation to the ending. The "Rises" most certainly has to refer to Batman, rising above either a) his crime-fighting sabbatical or b) (more likely) him escaping the pit and saving Gotham after Bane's takeover. At the end of the movie, he is no longer the Dark Knight, which makes his title-referenced "Rise" out to be both chronologically late and also quite frankly, underwhelming. TLDR; rising to save Gotham is far more impacting than rising to ... live an anonymous life.

comment Why did Magnussen need to pressure so many people to get to Mycroft?
@NapoleonWilson Ah, the comment was merely to help the reader recall the scene (as in atticae's answer), while also helping not spoil anything.

comment Why did Magnussen need to pressure so many people to get to Mycroft?
I'm accepting this answer because I agree it mostly boils down to needlessly convoluted chains. I'd actually posit that Mrs. Hudson would be a pressure point to John, with how he reacted in the Reichenbach Fall regarding Mrs. Hudson being hurt. In the end, Magnussen could just as well pressured John->Sherlock->Mycroft. John->Sherlock was already demonstrated in the bonfire incident and John->Mary seemed more sensible than Mary->John. All is explicable as Magnussens' hubris.

comment Why did Magnussen need to pressure so many people to get to Mycroft?
I'm more and more inclined to explain it as arrogance, too. In this particular case, Magnussen didn't actually get to one-up Mycroft until after Mary had already been outed AND John had forgiven her. In other words, his play on Mary ended up fruitless--only Sherlock's obsession with trying to win led him to drug Mycroft, which he could have done with or without Mary/John invited to the Christmas party (except then he would've had to go to Appledore alone).
