The Dark Knight Rises, The Amazing Spider Man, and why The Avengers still owns my heart

I saw The Dark Knight Rises yesterday and I had a few thoughts. Without giving away any spoilers: it was fun, it was explodey, I loved the supporting characters, and I liked how it rounds off the trilogy. It can’t be as good as The Dark Knight, because: no Heath Ledger’s Joker. It takes a stab at it though and is at least as good as, if not better than, Batman Begins.

I also saw The Amazing Spider Man a few weeks back and forget to share thoughts (shame on me), so, again without spoilers, I thought it was far superior to the other Spider Man films, in plot and characterisation. It’s fun without shying away from dark topics, has some great effects, and I loved the supporting cast.

WITH SPOILERS, and apologies for rambling, here’s a bit more on both films, plus why after seeing both of them The Avengers still owns my heart:

Rather rambling and not my best words, but there you go :)
