The lovely people at Warner Bros sent me a lovely package just before Christmas with some goodies for the kids and a couple of Blu-Ray discs. I was really excited to receive this package because I have been dying to watch The Dark Knight Rises for a while and I wasn’t able to get to the cinema while it was showing! Anyway the two Blu-ray’s that they sent were The Dark Knight Rises and New Years Eve. I will admit to not have watched New Years Eve; I’m waiting until James is away one night and I will sit and have a girlie film night on my own as he really is not interested in it 😉 But he couldn’t get The Dark Knight Rises into the DVD player quick enough!
I LOVED the Dark Knight Rises! Loved it! I cannot recommend it highly enough! I was on the edge of my seat the whole time and I just LOVE all the characters apart from the creepy mask guy(Bane)!! I did get a bit de ja vu towards the end and felt like I had seen it before but my other half assures me that I haven’t so I’m not sure what happened there! But yes make sure you watch it definitely! If you haven’t seen the The Dark Knight either make sure you watch that one too because that is AWESOME!
It has been eight years since Batman vanished into the night, turning, in that instant, from hero to fugitive. Assuming the blame for the death of D.A. Harvey Dent, the Dark Knight sacrificed everything for what he and Commissioner Gordon both hoped was the greater good. For a time the lie worked, as criminal activity in Gotham City was crushed under the weight of the anti-crime Dent Act.
But everything will change with the arrival of a cunning cat burglar with a mysterious agenda. Far more dangerous, however, is the emergence of Bane, a masked terrorist whose ruthless plans for Gotham drive Bruce out of his self-imposed exile. But even if he dons the cape and cowl again, Batman may be no match for Bane.
The other film is New Years Eve; like I said I haven’t watched this yet but will be doing soon! I have heard that it’s really good. My friend Helen at The Crazy Kitchen has reviewed it here.
“New Year’s Eve” celebrates love, hope, forgiveness, second chances and fresh starts, with intertwining stories told amidst the pulse and promise of New York City on the most dazzling night of the year.
