    Ah, wait, the first one is named Batman Begins. Not the Dark Knight something. I haven't actually seen that one. >.>
    You know how the Cillian Murphy/Scarecrow character has bit parts in both Dark Knight and Rises? He's a major character in the first one. Also, there's a brief flashback with Liam Neeson and a few references to his character in the most recent movie, and he's also a more prominent character in the first one.

    Honestly, a lot of the third one makes more sense in relation to the first movie, and some of the stuff in the second.
    Does he want a pillow for his head?

    I find myself cooling on the film, the opposite of Inception.

    I came out of tdkr more positive than where i am now as well.

    I always loved inception, and tdk just gets better and better.

    Inception suffers from "do it for the children!" that I thought was unearned. It's more blatantly manipulative than any of the Batman movies.

    For some reason that seemed realistic to me -- people putting pressure on him for the kids. I mean, manipulative? Yes, I suppose... but I've had those very exact experience and pressures in life, and I understand what it means to be a parent and having to pit my love for my kids and wanting to make their lives easier against doing what I think is best in the long term. I didn't feel like those impulses from Michael Caine to Cobb, and from Cobb to Mal, and vice versa, etc., were unwarranted -- they are a HUGE part of what being a parent is, and Cobb wants to get back to his kids. That's what made the movie good to me. It wasn't just for me, it's because he loved his children.

    Yeah, that's what I'm talking about. The kids didn't inspire any pathos, they were just things. Did his kids even exist? I thought the big reveal would be that Mal killed the kids before she killed herself. And then Leo would wake up on Shutter Island under the care of Dr. Jonathon Crane.

    I guess that wasn't the movie he wanted to tell... kind of like your advice to those who didn't like TDKR.

    I think a single flashback scene with the children would've won me over. Too much Mal.

    I stopped lucid dreaming after watching the Inception.

    I still wonder sometimes whether I am dreaming.

    It would have been impossible to do without showing their faces, and pointless to do if he didn't.
