comment Fox's analysis of the Bat
This totally reminds me of how fans of the 'Alien' series were creating their own versions of events in Prometheus to justify scenes that didn't make sense in that film.

comment Fox's analysis of the Bat
That's a good point - which leads us to assume that there were two Bats, which then leads us to assume that Wayne fixed the auto-pilot in BOTH of them for some reason, and which also lends credence to the suggestion that Batman somehow switched bats before the bomb was taken out into the bay, and therefore that shot of him in the cockpit before the explosion was actually of him in the other Bat. It's all a huge cop out IMO.

That's a good question!

OK - that would cover WHAT are the films about. I asked WHO. I totally understand treating Gotham as a 'character', but to be honest I just found the city to be a plot device for each film, imperiled and saved 3 times.

I would strongly suggest reading Film Crit HULK's take on the film too (he's one of the few critics that I think is ever on the ball) - according to him TDKR has NO theme - read it and see what you think badassdigest.com/2012/07/26/…

Great question and answer - and I wonder if there is a possible follow up to this (at the risk of being too 'discussion-y'): WHO are the films about? I would argue that BB is about Bruce, TDK is about Joker and TDKR is about Blake - it all comes down to journeys - thoughts?

That rings a bell. Good of them to include shavers in the crate ;)

Indeed. I should amend the question.

That's true - but his 'academy award' moment came when Gordon et al had left the memorial site.

comment Was Alfred in on Bruce's plan in The Dark Knight Rises?
He had already stated that he needed to make the ultimate sacrifice (at least this is hinted in his dialogue) + would he really entrust the autopilot (which he hadn't tested yet) to get the bomb away from the city? + he handed his legacy on to John Blake + he had nothing left in the world now that Rachel was gone and Alfred had left him. That said, I think the ending is ambiguous enough to let us all enjoy the ending we hope it is. For some he lives, for others he dies. It's a glass half-full/empty scenario :)

Acting to who? There was nobody around when he made that impassioned speech to the headstones.
