Geek Out's 75th anniversary celebration of Batman concludes (As does the first year of commentaries) with this final appearance of Christian Bale as the Caped Crusader. The Dark Knight Rises is an interesting film that has moments that captivate the Geek Out gang and other moments that completely pull them out of the movie. Jake is delighted with Tom Hardy's performance as his favorite Batman villain, Bane, but is put off by other elements of the film (Including his apparent contempt for the Pittsburgh Steelers). None of the guys are particular fans of the way the movie starts and Sam and Chris lament the film as something that only halfway succeeds at closing out Bale's trilogy of Batman. Take a listen.
